Mike Pence? Really?…Maybe Trump Should’ve Picked Ivanka

“Who’s Trump going to pick?” was the breathless speculation for months. “Will it be a former primary foe like Rubio or Kasich?” “No, no, it’ll be a woman like Joni Ernst, he’s gotta pick a woman.” “Nope, it’ll be someone currently in congress to help get bills passed like Bob Corker or even”–hilariously–“Jeff Sessions.” “Nah,… Read More »

Does Chris Christie Endorsement Really Matter? It Just Might…

By now, Rubio has collected more political endorsements than The Godfather who carried around politicians “like so many nickels and dimes in your pocket.” He’s had damn-near every big name Republican politician of past (Romney) present (Nikki Haley) and waaay past (Bob Dole).

Bizarre protest… 5:22–Trump joins him, because, “ehhhh, what the hell?” 5:25–Trump is defending his foreign policy credentials and against Cruz attacks. 5:26–Ben Carson goes after Ted Cruz for very dirty tricks. Good for him. He’s still a… Read More »

Are Republican Immigrants Setting Up a GOP That They Don’t Fit Into?

As I pointed out in the article right before this one—“Does Ted Cruz Know that Half of Faux News is From NY?”—the Republicans are looking less and less like the hillbillies they cater to. In fact, if they weren’t so desperate to appeal to Evangelical zealots and rural xenophobia, they might note that they (technically)… Read More »
