Bidenmania as Democrats No Longer Crazy About Hillary
We’re going to hear a lot about Joe Biden coming up. He is suddenly relevant again. As Hillary’s poll numbers go down and leading Democrats continue to see Bernie Sanders as not really viable, Biden becomes a logical alternative. Joe and Jill Biden are two of the nicest people in Washington, D.C. The amount of time they spend caring for wounded veterans, unreported by the | Read More »
Biden and Christie agree: Obama is responsible for deaths caused by Iran
Well, not in so many words but the effect is the same. One of the components of the Iran nuclear deal is that it gives Iran unconstrained access to well over $100 billion in cash. Another component of the deal is that even though Iran is on the State Department’s list of state sponsors of terror, Iran’s support of terror was not an item of | Read More »
Quinnipiac: Joe Biden compares favorably to Hillary Clinton in swing states.
SOON. Vice President Biden matches up as well or better than Hillary Clinton against top 2016 Republicans in three swing states, according to a Quinnipiac poll released Thursday morning that’s certain to fuel speculation of the former six-term senator entering the White House race.

Democrats want more elderly white guys to run for president
In an election in which the electorate seems to be shouting change, the Democrats have hooked their electoral hopes to Hillary Clinton, a bitter, spiteful woman who has never accomplished anything without a man giving her the position, and who would be as old as Ronald Reagan at inauguration. Her primary challengers is Bernie Sanders. Bernie is 73, which is to say he and Clinton | Read More »

The Draft Biden Movement Exists. Bob Uecker Was Sadly Unavailable.
Does Eleanor Clift even enjoy the rush of meeting deadline anymore? I’m sure she enjoys a certain salary with nice perks, but this? Really? What? My five or so Constant Readers bemusedly ask. This! It’s gotten this bad for her and for the political organization for which she serves as a devoted mascot. Are you ready for President Biden? She plaintively asks. If these were | Read More »
Offense-Bullying, Making You Care and Burning the Witches
In Post-modern America being offended shares something in common with terrorism. They both work like Hell. Neither really has anything to do with ancient grievances or even more recent grievances. They are both ways of bullying and intimidating people. If you can publically, directly, and specifically change people’s behavior because of your act of terrorism or your loud protestations; you have made them acknowledge your | Read More »
Comedic Gold At The Bloomberg View
I examine the potential members of the so-called Democrat bench. It’s mean of me….cold-hearted, right-wing, spewing of bile. I show them spite. I treat them with pity and all the contempt and antipathy that this emotional reaction implicitly requires. In less verbosity – I laugh my @$$ off! I should stop, but if Jonathan Bernstein of The Bloomberg View were at The Laugh Factory; he’d | Read More »

A 2016 Advantage?
Yesterday, something phenomenal happened. While I dare not call DOOM (1. that’s Moe Lane’s job and 2. I think it would be a bit premature), I do believe Hillary irreparably hurt herself in the race for the White House in 2016. My colleague Leon Wolf updated the Republican Power Rankings yesterday, so you can see where the GOP is in terms of having a series | Read More »

Marco Rubio Shows the 2016 Contenders How It’s Done
As it happens, I agree with the general thrust of Rudy Giuliani’s comments about President Obama. That being said, for people who are running for President, there might be some political benefit to trying to create distance between themselves and those remarks. Definitely, the media believes that the remarks are damaging to Republican Presidential candidates, so they have been making the rounds to all the | Read More »
