Sure, Hillary Clinton should promise to fulfill Barack Obama’s legacy!
I don’t really want* to fisk this article on how Hillary Clinton should run on a platform of being Barack Obama’s third term – she totally should, by the way – but it’s hard not to fisk when somebody leads off with a sentence this interruptible. So let me just interject, the one time: Conventional wisdom has it that President Obama’s middling poll numbers will be | Read More »
Martha Robertson (D CAND, New York-23[*]) using already debunked DCCC talking points.
Martha Robertson (D CAND, NY-23), having apparently not learned her lesson about telling lies in the course of campaigning, is doubling down on stupid: Two weeks ago, a local news station ran a story concerning Robertson’s claim that the VA suffered from “decades of underfunding.” That claim had previously been rates as false.

National Seersucker Day comes back to Congress, thank God.
No, I am not joking about either half of that title. Today, Rep. Bill Cassidy (R-LA) announced that National Seersucker Day has been formally reinstated. A bipartisan Capitol Hill tradition, Members of the House of Representatives typically wear Seersucker on Wednesdays and Senators wear it on Thursdays. The tradition started in 1996 by Trent Lott, and continued until 2012. That year ninnyhammers in the Senate | Read More »
The NRCC lines itself up behind Dave Brat.
No doubt much to the disappointment of people looking and hoping for a bloody internal fight over the district, the NRCC is playing it straight: “Eric Cantor has been a steadfast leader for our party, and a great friend and mentor for so many House Republicans. I know Eric will continue to lead on the issues he cares so deeply about. Virginia families have selected Republican | Read More »
