Don’t Worry Bernie Fans, Tom Perez Winning Is Actually a Good Thing for You

“Oh great, Tom Perez won DNC Chair, same old, same old.” “Tom Perez is another corporate centrist!” “What do you call a party that does the same thing over and over again and expects a different results? The Democratic Party.” “Goodbye Democrats, I’m going third party! Demexit!” We heard all this and a lot more… Read More »

Why Bernie Sanders is to Blame for President Trump

In the week since Trump pulled off the most shocking Presidential victory since Harry Truman beat Dewey, the finger has been pointing in dozens of different directions at the same time with the deafening question “Who’s to blame?” And the answers are so varied, I’m beginning to wonder if secretly I’m to blame for it. Hillary’s campaign… Read More »

Democrats Don’t Need a Revolution, Republicans Do

It’ll be one of the great mysteries of the historically-long, never-ending 2016 primary season: “what went wrong with Bernie’s revolution?” Yes, how did the “shocking” defeat of a candidate who was never leading in a single poll happen? Now I have my own theories about that (which I’ll be happy to get into later this… Read More »

Will New York Primary Really Change Anything? Probably Not

New York is the third most populated state in America, it’s home to the most populated city in America, and it’s got direct ties to all of the main presidential candidates: Trump and Bernie are from there. Hillary was a Senator there. And Ted Cruz directly insulted them even as he also took money from Wall… Read More »

The Southeast is Actually the MOST Important Area for Democrats

For months we’ve seen Bernie and his even worse traveling circus of goons—i.e. surrogates—basically write-off the Southeast and laugh dismissively about Hillary’s wins there. They might say different variations of things like “Well, it doesn’t matter if Hillary won ‘Bamasippi’ as she’ll never win those states in November.” They might even mock the “ignorance” of… Read More »

Why I’m NOT Live-Blogging Tonight’s Democratic Debate

In the past I’ve live-blogged the majority of GOP and Democratic Debates. I haven’t kept up much with the endless Town Halls, forums, awkward “meet my family” hostage takings, or Trump’s daily appearances on cable news networks, but who could really blame me? Only the debates really “matter” if anything at all matters in this… Read More »

Actually, Hillary Doesn’t Need Bernie’s Fans, but He Sure Needs Hers

We’ve heard the same tired lines about the Democratic primary for months: “Well, no matter who wins the primary” as if there’s any doubt Hillary will “they’ll need each other’s fans.” And now that we’ve seen Bernie’s chances of winning winnow down to zero, the more specific “Hillary will need to appeal to his fans… Read More »

Needless to Say, Hillary Clinton is Beyond “Qualified” to be President

This article won’t be very long. Recently, Bernie Sanders—-auditioning for the role of “distant relative everybody is a little disappointed showed up to the family reunion”—-decided to keep destroying his legacy by hammering Hillary harder than he has in the past. He even said she was not “qualified” to be president, even though everybody pretty… Read More »

Will the Wisconsin Primary Continue the Midwest’s Irrelevance?

In the unpredictable roller-coaster ride that is the 2016 Presidential election we’ve seen many things: a Socialist independent pretending to be a Democrat, a closet-Democrat pretending to be a Republican nationalist, and a Canadian-Christian theocrat pretending to be a strict constitutionalist. Still, there’s one thing 2016 has made very, very clear: the Midwest is now… Read More »

Yes, Hillary is STILL the Best General Election Candidate. Here’s Why…

One of the more curious (i.e. annoying) aspects of this election cycle has been for people to do something called “selective fact enforcement.” Meaning they only pay attention to information they like and outright ignore information they don’t. Which is why I’m still hearing that “Bernie’s gonna win this thing!” and “We’re gonna be laughing all the… Read More »
