FLASH! Report that Delegates Have Enough Votes to Nominate Cruz on 1st Ballot

(from the diaries by streiff because wishful thinking isn’t a bad reaction to impending doom) The Media have declared Donald Trump has gained the required number of delegates for nomination, plus one: 1238. This is a misstatement, because he is not officially nominated until 1237 delegates vote for him at the convention. So not only has the fat lady not sung, she’s still in her | Read More »

Pakistan Considers a Huge Leap Forward by Only Allowing Husbands to Beat their Wives “Lightly”

Here’s another healthy reminder that the real war on women does not occur anywhere in America. Not even at the hands of Donald Trump. Pakistan is considering a measure that would allow husbands to beat their wives “lightly,” – which, if enforced, would actually be a huge step in the right direction. Of course, this was in response to a group that proposed a law | Read More »

A Lesson from 2016: Politicians Will Always Act Like Politicians

The 2016 election cycle has taught us a lot about ambition, celebrity, substance, and policy. Elections shouldn’t be taken lightly nor treated as a reality show. Increasingly, though, they feel like these things. This week when I mentioned my #NeverTrump stance on social media, someone responded by chastising me for choosing conservative principle over party. They even said “Good luck with that. You’re never going | Read More »

Trump Attempting to Book Cleveland Browns’ Stadium for Nomination Acceptance Speech

Well, here’s yet another thing that many people criticized Obama for doing but will doubtless call Trump a genius for doing the exact same thing.

The Difficulty of Mainstreaming Libertarianism

Like a lot of disaffected Republicans, I spent some time watching the Libertarian Party’s Presidential debate last night. I say “some” time, but that might have been a little bit of an exaggeration – really, I managed to survive about 10 minutes of a deeply disconcerting experience that nonetheless completely met my expectations. Of the five candidates on stage, only Gary Johnson and Austin Petersen | Read More »

Trump Name Game: Add Your Own

It will soon be a year since the worst thing ever to befall the Republican party was forced on us. From the moment Donald Trump recreated a scene from a 15-year old episode of “The Simpsons,” nothing about him should have suggested he was offering an adult, reality-based solution to the nation’s myriad problems. Possibly the most disgusting display of his illegitimacy as a candidate | Read More »
