WTF, Bristol Palin? Seriously, WTF?
Last week we talked about the negative reception that Hillary Clinton’s git, Chelsea, received for wading into her mother’s campaign. Everyone agreed that a) enlisting your kid as an active surrogate in your campaign is a bad move and b) that you really can’t engage in the close quarters tussling of a political campaign and not expect to become a target. The rumor of the | Read More »
ARG Polls Love John Kasich When Nobody Else Does
There are many rules of thumb in evaluating polls, especially in the volatile context of a primary. We usually caution people to look at polling averages rather than individual polls for a variety of reasons, not least the fact that some pollsters may have biases (even if unintentional) or may consistently produce outliers. Sometimes, of course, one pollster that sees the world differently from everyone | Read More »
It Would Be Just Like the GOP Establishment To Back Trump
As the battle for the Republican presidential campaign defied conventional wisdom and devolved into a two-man race between two non-Establishment candidates — Sen. Ted Cruz and Billionaire Donald Trump, the Republican Establishment has panicked. That’s right the Party and Congressional leadership, the donor class and even the dreaded consultant class have started to “cozy up” to Trump any way they can.

The Foundations behind the Left
Over a decade ago, the New York Post’s Ryan Sager published a blockbuster story, showing that “campaign finance reform has been an immense scam perpetrated…by a cadre of left-wing foundations and disguised as a “mass movement.” Based on the astonishing testimony of Sean Treglia, who ran the campaign finance reform effort for Pew Trusts, Sager reported that… …Treglia came up with a three-pronged strategy: 1) pursue an | Read More »
Trump Bashes Ted Cruz for Being Rude to Mitch McConnell
Within the last nine months, Donald Trump has mocked a disabled reporter for his disability, suggested that Megyn Kelly was on her period during the course of a debate, made fun of Carly Fiorina’s looks, and called the entirety of the Republican leadership “stupid” more times than I can count. Now he is bashing Ted Cruz for – I kid you not – having bad | Read More »
Bernie Sanders Is Absolutely Right
On Sunday night, Bernie Sanders attacked Hillary Clinton on her ties to Wall Street, specifically saying that she is too close to the major corporations of Wall Street. Check, for example, her speaking fees. Sanders pinpointed on Goldman Sachs, which is the usual name tossed out whenever the causes of the 2008 financial crisis are brought up. “I don’t get personal speaking fees from Goldman Sachs,” | Read More »
Colorado Governor Hickenlooper Challenges AFP-Colorado

It’s Official: Palin Endorses Trump
Well, this was more or less expected news. The final insult contained in this ridiculous charade is that the Trump campaign did not even release the news to one of the news organizations like Breitbart who have knelt before them in fawning servitude since day one, but instead leaked it to… the New York Times. The Palins are just such ridiculous people. Today’s crapshow really | Read More »
Iowa Governor Terry Branstad Basically Endorses Ted Cruz
Of course, to hear Branstad say it, what he actually said was that he hopes Ted Cruz loses. The problem with Branstad’s jeremiad against Cruz is that Brandstad is everything that is wrong with both the Republican Party and the political class in the country as a whole. The fecklessness and self-dealing of Terry Branstad would put any fat cat Republican Senator in the caucus to | Read More »

The Bernie Sanders Campaign Threw Hundreds of Homeless People Out into the Cold Yesterday
You have probably heard about Bernie Sanders’ surprisingly large rally in Birmingham yesterday. The entire media has been fawning over it, and over the success of Bernie’s calculated play to appeal to black voters in the South, which were previously thought to be his achilles heel. By all accounts, it looks like Bernie’s efforts were a rousing success. To everyone, that is, except for the | Read More »
Watercooler 1/19/2016 Open Thread: NBC Debate Nixed, Smiley is Frowning, Trump is Like Nixon?
NBC Republican Debate Nixed On Monday, the RNC Debate Committee voted and concluded that they would sever their relationship with NBC and cancel the Feb. 26 debate that was scheduled.

BREAKING: Federal Judge Rejects Obama Claim Of Executive Privilege On Fast & Furious Records
No claims of bias are going to be made here. President Obama appointed U.S. District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson and she has rejected the administration’s claims: A federal judge has rejected President Barack Obama’s assertion of executive privilege to deny Congress access to records pertaining to Operation Fast and Furious, a gunrunning probe that allegedly allowed thousands of weapons to flow across the border into | Read More »
Watch Donald Trump Say There are Jobs Americans Won’t Do, Make the Case for Partial Amnesty (VIDEO)
I’ve been told by people who support Donald Trump that “there are jobs Americans won’t do” is practically the worst thing you can say. I am also told by many Donald Trump supporters that if you support the idea that you have to look at each of the 12-15 million illegal immigrants who are currently here individually and make an individual determination of whether they get to | Read More »
Donald Trump’s Continuing Dishonesty On Eminent Domain
