Republicans, let’s take a second look at Jim Webb.
Democrats and Republicans last night were equally confused at the tone and demeanor of Jim Webb, a former U.S. Senator and currently one of the guys that is still in the Democratic Primary for some reason. His numbers are atrocious and his general dislike of campaigning on this scale (also, his total lack of name recognition) have done irreparable harm to the campaign. However, did | Read More »
Rand Paul serves up large helping of WTF
For reasons known only to him, Rand Paul embarked upon a rather unstructured exercise into random-stream-of-consciousness as a campaign tool: (R-Kentucky) really did not like what he described as a “dumba–” attempt to live stream his entire day. Paul spent much of Tuesday being filmed by his campaign staff as part of a stunt to broadcast an entire day on the campaign trail in Iowa on UStream, a live-streaming | Read More »
The Pointless Money Race
Candidates have until tomorrow to release their quarterly fundraising totals, which means that we are being treated today to another round of pontifications over the increasingly-pointless money race and the expectations game appurtenant thereto. Of the major candidates who are still in the race, the public posturing has already begun: Aided by two confident debate performances, Republican Carly Fiorina quadrupled her fundraising over the summer, | Read More »
The Iran-is-bogged-down-in-Syria narrative begins
One of the key themes offered by the Obama administration in regards to Syria is that Russia and Iran will become bogged down in an unwinnable war against ISIS. This begs a couple of questions, if the war against ISIS is unwinnable then why are we engaged in it? And if it is not unwinnable, how will the Russians and Iranians become bogged down? The | Read More »
The Democrat Debate: As Horrible As You Think It Was
There were plenty of things that came out of the first Democrat debate last night. One of them was the conclusion that I would rather have flaming skewers shoved into my eyes and Mr. Blonde from the ‘Reservoir Dogs’ cut off my ears with a straight razor than have to sit through another one of these spectacles ever again. Forget waterboarding. “Watching Democrats debate” should be | Read More »
Rand Paul’s ‘Dumb-A** Live Stream’
Those aren’t my words. Those are his words. What an embarrassing end to ‘s Presidential campaign. I actually had higher hopes for than this, but he has become an after thought. The latest polling has him trending below two percent, behind Mike Huckabee. He had so much potential. But that is all in the past. He might need to focus on his Senate seat now.
Hillary Clinton Was the Tallest Pygmy on Stage Last Night
I wrote last night that I believed that Hillary Clinton won the first Democratic debate in convincing fashion, and after sleeping on it, I believe that’s still true. However, the liberal pundits who are echoing basically the same thing this morning are still getting it wrong. I turned off the post-debate coverage last night because I simply could not stomach the feting Hillary Clinton was | Read More »
At the CNN Debate: White People For the Win. Token Hispanic To Ask Immigration Question.
The Democratic debate last night was a festival of old white liberals. There wasn’t an old white liberal behind the podium. All of them relished in the banality of old white liberal upper income thoughts. Even the crowd was whiter than a gathering of Santa Claus and his elves. The Democrats onstage in Las Vegas last night were all about the social programs to take | Read More »
The Dark Side of Governor Moonbeam
Governor Jerry Brown plumbs to a depth of at least six feet under the ground. He has proven his indifference to the sanctity of life in end-of-life issues by signing an assisted suicide bill into law and then vetoing a bill that would allow terminally ill patients to access clinically proven yet FDA-unapproved experimental drugs. In a sense, he has to. The ecology of the | Read More »
Anderson Cooper and Hillary Clinton Won the Debate
Let me first sing Anderson Cooper’s praises. He kept the trains running on time. He forced the candidates to answer questions they otherwise did not want to answer. He pushed on gun control; he pushed on Clinton’s emails; he held his ground against an audience even against him. Anderson Cooper won the debate, but he is not running for President. Hillary Clinton was the winner | Read More »
My Take on the First Democratic Debate
I am thankful that the happenings in Las Vegas usually stay there, especially after tonight’s Democratic debate. The debate was everything you would think it would be. There was much discussion about the horrors of climate change, the horrors of pay inequality, the horrors of gun ownership, the horrors of wealth, the horrors of paying for higher education, and the like. For the group that | Read More »
Hillary Clinton Wins Round 1 in a Knockout (I Think)
Liberal pundits always indulge the conceit, when opinion about Republican debates, that they know how Republicans will perceive candidate performances in a primary debate. I’m going to try to avoid that with a frank admission that I haven’t the slightest ability to place myself in the shoes of a Democrat primary voter and predict accurately what they will think about how the candidates. That said, | Read More »
Hillary Clinton believes “Big Government” is defunding the slaughter of children. #DemDebate
In an interesting exchange, Hillary Clinton said that Republicans are against big government except in the case of going after Planned Parenthood. Let’s take a brief moment and break down that claim, shall we? What are Republicans* going after Planned Parenthood for? The killing of children and the sale of their body parts. This selling of body parts is documented by the Center for Medical | Read More »
Hillary Thinks She is the Only Person in America Who is Part of the 1% as a Result of Work
Just now in the CNN Debate, Hillary Clinton was asked by Anderson Cooper how she could claim to be a champion of the middle class when she is, by all accounts, part of the hated (by Democrats) 1%. Her answer, paraphrased, was that her grandparents were poor, and her parents were small business owners, and that she was fortunate to earn money through hard work | Read More »
