Color Me Pleasantly Surprised

Fri, 23 Jun 2017 16:14:35 +0000

As I previously noted: Regular readers of Wizbang know that I was not a supporter of Donald Trump during the 2016 Primary and General Elections. That lack of support does not mean I was not thrilled to see Madam former Secretary go down to defeat in an electoral landslide, quite the opposite. Comes now Jonah Goldberg with some words of faint praise. We’re on an Unusual Path to a More Functional System So here it goes: Maybe things are getting better.

Democratic Party in Disarray

Fri, 23 Jun 2017 14:00:58 +0000

The American humorist Will Rogers said, “I’m not a member of any organized political party…I’m a Democrat.” Although Rogers said that in 1932, his observation about the state of the Democratic Party is applicable today. That’s because the Democratic Party is in disarray. Democrat film maker Michael Moore certainly thinks so, as evident by the following tweet of his. Congressional Democrats are also lamenting the current state of their party. From The Hill: “Democratic leaders in the House are taking heat after the party’s disappointing special-election defeat in Georgia. Some lawmakers were quick to blame their leadership for Jon Ossoff’s(image)

Nancy Pelosi the Pariah?

Fri, 23 Jun 2017 00:51:18 +0000

According to Merriam-Webster.com, one of the definitions of pariah is “one that is despised or rejected”. If she isn’t already there, then Nancy Pelosi is on her way to fitting that description. Just take a look at some of the news headlines from June 21-22, 2017. Politico quotes Rep. Filemon Vela (D-Texas) as saying, “I think you’d have to be an idiot to think we could win the House with Pelosi at the top. Nancy Pelosi is not the only reason that Ossoff lost. But she certainly is one of the reasons.” CNN quotes Rep. Kathleen Rice (D-NY) as saying,(image)



Democrats Get A Reality Check

Wed, 21 Jun 2017 20:53:20 +0000

“It was a gut punch to Democrats’ confidence, a reality check to the idea that vast swaths of the country were ready to deliver a backlash.” Those are the words of Molly Ball in an article published by The Atlantic. Ball is commenting on Jon Ossoff’s loss to Karen Handel in the special election to fill the open seat in Georgia’s Sixth Congressional District. Ball also writes, “If this race was a referendum on Trump, the president won it.” Monica Showalter picks up on the referendum theme: “Guess it really was a referendum, but not with the “narrative” Ben Rhodes(image)

What did the former President know and when did he know it.

Karen Handel Wins! OPEN THREAD

Wed, 21 Jun 2017 07:03:10 +0000

From CNN: Democrats just went 0-4. When will they win? Atlanta (CNN)Democrats tried an inoffensive moderate message in Georgia. They ran a banjo-strumming populist in Montana. They called in the cavalry in South Carolina and tried to catch their foe sleeping through a long-shot in Kansas. None of it worked. In the special elections for House seats vacated by Republicans who wound up in President Donald Trump’s Cabinet, Democrats went 0-for-4. Now, party officials, strategists and candidates are pondering what went wrong — and how they can turn it around in time for the 2018 midterm elections. Jon Ossoff’s loss(image)



The Fool on President Trump’s Legal Team

Tue, 20 Jun 2017 03:05:30 +0000

It is said that, if a man is his own attorney, then he has a fool for a client. In President Trump’s case, he has a fool for an attorney. That attorney is Jay Sekulow, who made a big fool of himself when he appeared on the 06/18/17 edition of Fox News Sunday, hosted by Chris Wallace. Here is the video of the exchange between Sekulow and Wallace: Here are excerpts from the transcript: “SEKULOW: And now he’s being investigated by the Department of Justice because the special counsel under the special counsel relations reports still to the Department(image)



Resident Evil: Alex Jones

Mon, 19 Jun 2017 03:06:52 +0000

Evil comes in many forms. Last week, evil used a rifle to shoot at Republican members of Congress who were practicing for a softball game. Over in Manchester, England, evil use a bomb to kill 22 people at a concert. Although it reveals itself in such horrific acts, evil doesn’t need to use a lethal weapon in order to inflict harm. Evil can also use a microphone and the Internet. American journalist Megyn Kelly confronted this latter kind of evil in an interview that was aired on NBC on 06/18/17. This was the segment of her show that featured conspiracy(image)



Weekend Caption Contest™ Winners Week of June 16, 2017

Mon, 19 Jun 2017 00:42:16 +0000

This week’s Weekend Caption Contest™ included another round of swamp creatures. I added two more categories this week. One salutes the best use of the caption topic that has become a tradition during the early months of the Trump administration. The other is given to a caption that is a wee bit too edgy given how close it is to the event that inspired it. The assignment this week was to caption the following picture: Here are the winning entries: 1) (fustian24) – Taking a break from butchering the Constitution, they’re now attacking the Star Spangled Banner. 2) (cathymv) –(image)



Republicans and conservatives should shun Ann Coulter.

Sat, 17 Jun 2017 02:10:39 +0000

Republicans and conservatives need Ann Coulter like they needs hemorrhoids, especially when she seriously needs a clue. Once again, the bombastic polemicist has demonstrated that critical thinking isn’t her strong suit. A story by The Hill elaborates: “Conservative author and commentator Ann Coulter criticized President Trump in a series of tweets Friday over what she said is the lack of progress on the border wall.” Here are a couple of Coulter’s tweets that the story refers to: Republicans and conservatives should be able to see that Coulter isn’t thinking correctly. Building a border wall so soon after President Trump’s inauguration(image)

Wed, 14 Jun 2017 15:08:56 +0000

From CNN: Washington (CNN)Rep. Steve Scalise, a congressional staffer and members of the congressional police force were shot Wednesday morning in Alexandria, Virginia, in what sources are calling an apparent “deliberate attack.” Scalise, the third ranking member of House Republican leadership as the majority whip, appeared to have been shot in the hip and it appeared two Capitol Hill police agents were shot, according to Rep. Mo Brooks, who told CNN he was on deck when the shooting occurred. A congressional staffer was also injured. As of 9:45 a.m. ET, Scalise was in stable condition but undergoing surgery, according to(image)



Donald Trump is his own worst enemy.

Mon, 12 Jun 2017 22:00:26 +0000

Donald Trump is his own worst enemy. That is the gist of the criticism of Trump coming from people who are glad that Trump became the 45th POTUS instead of Hillary Clinton but who are also dismayed by Trump’s behavior. In particular, it is his mouth – either by speech or via tweets – that gets him into trouble. Town Hall political editor Guy Benson writes, “As far as impeachment and obstruction are concerned at this point, Trump has the facts on his side, even if he looks like an ignorant, meddling boor. He should pound those facts, not delve(image)
