Here’s the REAL Reason Why Those Kids Were Asked to Stop Singing at the 9/11 Memorial
There’s been a minor uproar over some North Carolina school kids who burst into singing the national anthem at the 9/11 memorial the other day. Some sources have absurdly claimed that the kids were asked to stop singing because the national anthem was “offensive” while others have just expressed general outrage that kids cannot sing the national anthem anywhere they want at any time.

DAAAAANG: Senior Clinton Aide talking Sanders says, “F— Him!”
As Larry O’Connor wrote at Hot Air, it’s not all kumbaya on the Democrat side of this primary. Not that anyone would expect a Clinton-related enterprise to be peaceful (or above-board or entirely legal). But even so, this report from Politico’s Glenn Thrush is a pretty surprising new level of rancorous candor in the race. I guess if the GOP’s primary day as “The Big | Read More »

Did Trump’s Top NY Surrogate Really Call Obama a “Coon”?
The liberal blogosphere is freaking out about comments made by top Trump NY surrogate and former gubernatorial candidate over allegations that he used a racial slur when referring to Barack Obama. The specific allegation is that he called Obama a raccoon, which of course would have been a huge no-no. Now look, Paladino is not and has never been known for having, uh, message discipline. | Read More »
Donald Trump in New York confirms: Poll averages are dead
Public political polling has been dying for the last 10 years. The end of the landline telephone era and the rise of the Internet have combined to turn it from a reasonably accurate public service, into a farce existing solely to draw clicks.
Polling averages served to take the polls, which were increasingly inaccurate, and piece together some sort of coherent message from them. But now the polls are so wrong, even the polling averages have outlived their usefulness.

Hillary Clinton Can’t Do Literally Anything Right
Can Hillary Clinton maintain a secure e-mail that carries confidential information? Can she handle a situation in the Middle East in a way that doesn’t result in the brutal deaths of American lives? Can she develop and lead policy on a national or even global scale? Can she play a game of dominoes without even mucking that up? The answer to all of these questions | Read More »
By winning in New York tonight, Donald Trump can still lose the nomination
It sounds ridiculous to say that even if Donald Trump wins New York tonight, he can still lose the nomination. However that only sounds silly because we’re so used to the fawning coverage from Fox and CNN, which have made New York out to be a general election-style Winner Take All state. New York is not Winner Take All statewide. He has to perform consistently | Read More »
New York Provides a Last Chance at Redemption for the Pollsters
Never before in an election season has the polling been more abysmal. Not even during their disastrous performance during the 2014 midterms have polling companies been so consistently wrong, and measured so many candidates’ performance outside the margin of error. Most astonishingly, the polls have all erred in one direction: the direction of overstating Trump’s support. Trump has underperformed his RCP average in every primary | Read More »

Red Alert: Trump below 50 statewide in New York poll
Donald Trump is bleeding delegates left and right. Even delegates pledged to him are ending up preferring other candidates. As a result, if he can’t secure a clear first ballot win, he’ll badly lose the runoff election at the convention. A near-sweep in New York is vital to Trump. Previous polling has already shown obvious regional weaknesses for him outside of the city, but a | Read More »
