Episode 18–Are Republicans More Accepting of Sex Scandals than Democrats?

The second part of our trilogy looks at a new record of topics: Will Bernie die before he quits? Will the media need a fainting couch when Trump becomes the nominee or keep insisting it’s not happening? How does Hillary’s good news always get spun into bad news? Will Trump pick another 80’s relic (Mr.… 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 »

Episode 17–Are Politically Correct Liberals the New Social Conservatives?

In the first part of a trilogy questioning different aspects of 2016 liberalism, we ask “Are Politically Correct Liberals the New Social Conservatives?” We dive bone-deep into a rival ideology that is–fundamentally–about telling people you’re a good person more than really being a good person, not entirely different from a social conservative that might find… 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 »

Episode 15–What Would Each Candidate Do as President?

Welcome back friends! After a week hiatus, we’re ready to tackle the biggest questions: is Ben Carson the worst campaign surrogate you’ve ever seen? Is Alabama Governor Robert Bentley’s sex scandal even more surprising than Ted Cruz apparently finding five women willing to have sex with him? Is oil the common thread that unites America’s… 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 »
