Trump Needs to Let Go of His Brand

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 00:27:09 +0000

As the left, from Vox to Politico and from CNN to MSNBC, delight at what they see as Trump’s poor first debate performance, here’s an idea that Donald Trump could use to boost his next performance. Show that the presidency of the United States of America matters more to you than your brand. Because that’s […]



Obama’s Memo and Aleppo’s Weather

Fri, 23 Sep 2016 20:09:46 +0000

You’re nearly as dumb as Gary Johnson, who apparently doesn’t need cannabis to go from affable to really weird at the drop of a hat. You know why you are? Because you don’t get Aleppo. Just like Gary, despite his protestations of: oh, yeah, got it. You don’t get it however. Here’s why. Aleppo is […]



Trump Wades Into Tulsa Shooting

Thu, 22 Sep 2016 18:13:24 +0000

The details are different between what happened in Charlotte and Tulsa, and the reaction has been more violent in Charlotte, but certainly angry in Tulsa. And Tulsa is where Trump has decided to stake out a position, by questioning police actions in the shooting of a black man in a strange confrontation involving an abandoned […]



Obama: the Mildly Annoyed Professor

Tue, 20 Sep 2016 17:15:14 +0000

Terrorism has been a defining force in American politics for nearly two decades now. Like it or not. Bush 43 was going to be the education president. He is now remembered as the president who had to take on the war on terror, like no other president before him. And since, unfortunately. One can argue […]



Panic Amongst Pollsters, Pundits, Republicans, and Democrats

Fri, 16 Sep 2016 23:17:08 +0000

Millennials would rather hang with Gary What’s-a-Leppo? Johnson than Hillary. Trump has for some unknown reason decided to dig up the birther zombie again and annoy mainstream media at the same time with his version of what a press conference is. And Nate Silver just doesn’t know; as he asks us to wait another week […]



Newsweek and NY AG Attack Trump

Wed, 14 Sep 2016 23:48:03 +0000

It didn’t take long. But we’ll see if it has legs and can last. The Hillary camp – and it’s a really big tent, folks all the way from State AG’s offices to mainstream media outlets like Newsweek – hit back quickly to try and divert some of the lousy press HRC has been getting […]



What If the Twitter Video Hadn’t Gone Viral?

Tue, 13 Sep 2016 00:20:56 +0000

Thank you alert Twitter user for your footage of Hillary Clinton having a rough few moments as she was being bundled into her vehicle by the strong arms of her security personnel. Nice that you happened to have a tripod or very steady hands, whoever you were. What if that footage had not happened and […]



Undecided or Won’t Say in North Carolina?

Fri, 09 Sep 2016 21:15:49 +0000

In the new Suffolk University poll, Trump has edged past Hillary Clinton by a slender margin in North Carolina, but well within the margin of error. Ahead none the less. The unfavorables for both candidates are high, higher than their favorables, and as a sort of extension of that, the undecideds are statistically significant. Especially […]



You Are Fringe If You Write About Hillary’s Health

Thu, 08 Sep 2016 21:00:08 +0000

With her campaign plane behind her, Hillary berated the assembled press for their unfair treatment of her, the first female president of the United States. In waiting. Unless the polls keep tightening. In which case, it’s not just Hannity’s fault. It’s the entire mainstream media’s fault. 15 minutes and 6 questions. That’s very efficient, isn’t […]



President Trump on Trump TV

Tue, 06 Sep 2016 21:29:16 +0000

Now that Myra Adams, writing in the Washington Examiner, has let the world know that Trump TV is not just a rumor but a very real option, a new post-Labor Day question must be asked. What if Trump wins? If Adams is right and the CEO and COO of this yet-to-be media empire is in […]



Putin’s Options and America’s Elections

Fri, 02 Sep 2016 20:33:57 +0000

It doesn’t matter who wins the election in November. If you’re Putin, that is. He’s got all the bases covered. That’s essentially the conclusion that John Schindler, writing for Jared Kushner’s Observer, has come to. And this is someone with lots of experience in the security and intelligence areas. While Manafort and others in, or […]



Kayla, Joshua and Caitlan: Raging at a Martyr

Wed, 31 Aug 2016 18:15:28 +0000

Now that Kayla Mueller has been officially sanctified, we can turn our bleeding hearts to a crazed Canadian muslim convert and his American wife in Afghanistan, who have been held in captivity by the Taliban for several years. They went hiking in 2012 in a zone some 40 km from Kabul known to be a […]



Hillary the Teamsters and Some History

Mon, 29 Aug 2016 21:37:09 +0000

Labor is just one big happy family. Just ask James P. Hoffa, Jimmy’s son. And since the late 90’s, President of the Teamster’s. As he was slowly working his way up the ranks as a union lawyer from the late 60’s through the 70’s and 80’s, the Teamsters and other major unions were under mob […]



For Now Hillary Has Diverted the Snipers

Fri, 26 Aug 2016 23:07:58 +0000

If she could just get Jeb Bush to campaign with her, Hillary would have Florida all sewn up, wouldn’t she? They could share the stage and talk about immigration and Common Core and Lincoln and diversity, and what the GOP should stand for. And give a nice thumbs up to Bush 43. Hillary’s game for […]



Immigration: Can Trump Avoid the A-Word?

Thu, 25 Aug 2016 18:33:04 +0000

The Southern border is anything you want it to be. If you’re Erica Grieder, it’s a waterway (where the Rio Grande is the border, that is) that Texans have a historical and apparently ecological right to access. If you’re a libertarian NeverTrump’er, it’s a delusional fantasy to build any structure, and all of that should […]



Smooth Sailing Doesn’t Fly in the 2016 Campaign

Tue, 23 Aug 2016 16:20:39 +0000

One of the many skill sets you need as president is how to fire people. In many ways. Sometimes with effusive praise, especially if they’ve taken a bullet for you. Sometimes with concerned humanitarianism, if the fired subordinate has been a crazy fool. Sometimes with crisp formality if it was really a mess that necessitated […]



George Soros, You’re not the Secret Operating Code

Thu, 18 Aug 2016 21:36:59 +0000

George Soros’ Open Society Foundations, handles lots of money, dispensing it around the world. Billions and billions of dollars. Maybe that’s small change when you’re working up a continuing resolution on Capitol Hill, but in many of the places where the money is apparently spent, it has made a difference. But one has to remember […]



Here Comes Steve Bannon!

Wed, 17 Aug 2016 21:45:20 +0000

So it was Manafort who has had to step sideways and maybe down a few flights of stairs in the Trump Tower penthouse suite. The man who has more political experience than the rest of Trump’s team combined, has been struggling with an Eastern European albatross draped over his elegantly suited shoulders in the last […]



What Paul Ryan’s Big Primary Win Really Means

Thu, 11 Aug 2016 18:54:01 +0000

Now that Speaker Paul Ryan has roundly thumped GOP primary rival Paul Nehlen in his home district in Wisconsin, what does it mean? There has been a fair bit written on how Ryan’s campaign team deftly managed the potential challenges that Nehlen’s surprise run involved. In other words, they managed to easily avoid a repeat […]



Suction Cups Attack the Trump Tower!!

Thu, 11 Aug 2016 00:52:27 +0000

Suction cups. Cupping. Maybe he was inspired by Michael Phelps. Not merely the cabinet full of gold medals and olympic and world records. But those odd, circular bruises on the olympian’s skin. In case you watched Phelps add a couple more gold to his collection over the last few days down in Rio de Janeiro. […]



Hillary Didn’t Lie – She Short-Circuited

Sat, 06 Aug 2016 18:26:25 +0000

A short circuit is defined as an abnormal connection between two nodes of an electric circuit. Which are intended to function at different voltages. So you get an arc and the thing shuts down usually. A lie is something you state which you know to be false, for the purpose of deceiving. One is intentional. […]



Tim Huelskamp Gets Punished for Voting His Beliefs

Thu, 04 Aug 2016 16:30:04 +0000

As Mike Pence – speaking about Trump’s refusal to endorse Speaker Ryan – said: in politics it takes a little time to get relationships going. And to finish things off, he might have added. Just ask John Boehner, who apparently enjoyed a glass of wine in the late summer evening as he watched GOP Representative […]



Donna Brazile’s You’re-Fired-DNC Dance

Tue, 02 Aug 2016 16:22:22 +0000

Boy is she ever incoming. Soon-to-be DNC Chairwoman Donna Brazil did an oh-so-cute little dance as she exited the stage, after her speech at the convention in Philadelphia. What some of her newly-former DNC head officials did not realize at the time – as they surely clapped heartily and loudly – was that Donna was […]



It’s Morning in Philadelphia

Fri, 29 Jul 2016 16:31:40 +0000

It’s over folks. Finally. The primaries are officially signed, sealed, and delivered. As they clean up at the Wells Fargo arena in the city in which the founding fathers put quill to paper and wrote down the principles which have guided the world’s greatest experiment in republican democracy for 240 years – or slightly less […]



Hillary Should Thank God for Bernie and Donald

Fri, 29 Jul 2016 02:29:59 +0000

In the end, Hillary didn’t even try to come to the plate and compete with the all-star heavy-hitters of rhetoric. Instead she stood on the pitcher’s mound and threw a steady, slow curve ball that tried to avoid every vulnerability of hers by admitting them. And then showing she’s listening. America’s First Mom and Madam […]



After the Weeping and Venting – Will They Support Hillary?

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 23:39:09 +0000

Bernie Sanders stood stubborn and tall in the Philadelphia convention center a few hours before the DNC would gavel open the convention at the Wells Fargo arena a ways away in another part of town. The boos were showering him on stage because of his explicit expression of support for Hillary Clinton, and of the […]



The Space between Donald Jr. and Ivanka

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 21:11:06 +0000

Much has been said about Donald Trump’s children, including speculating on how much influence they really do wield on their father. And now with the convention over, we have just a little more insight into who they may be. And how much power they might have in a Trump White House. While Eric certainly has […]



Trump: What Values Come First?

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 01:11:47 +0000

Trump doubled down on Trump during his lengthy, roaring convention speech Thursday night in Cleveland. And the crowd loved it. And many in the media and the think tanks – both conservative and liberal – will hate it. Because it was an attack on them. On Hillary as their supposed puppet. And a defense of […]



Melania Trump’s Plagiarism Frenzy is Missing the Point

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 21:19:26 +0000

Melania Trump’s RNC speech was over 15 minutes long, and contained a few sentences allegedly plagiarized from Michelle Obama’s speech, and those few sentences are the ONLY thing people are talking about in her speech. That’s ridiculous. She was poised. She was elegant. And she was well-spoken. I won’t remember Melania “plagiarized” her speech because […]



Trump Picks Mike Pence as VP

Fri, 15 Jul 2016 21:29:37 +0000

Donald Trump announced on Twitter today, that he has officially selected Indiana Governor Mike Pence has his Vice President. Rumors have swirled for days around his selection and were finally put to rest. In light of the attack in Nice, France last night, Trump said he’d be postposing his announcement. The news conference to discuss […]
