Petty Issues: So Long Ted Cruz…You Will Not Be Missed

[Ted Cruz Edition] Ted Cruz exited the race after losing Indiana primary by huge numbers. He needed to spend more time accidentally elbowing his wife in the face, forcing his daughter to hug him, and taunting the police with letters of his accomplishments as The Zodiac Killer. [Cruz and his family reminds me of the… Read More »

Red State Vs. Blue State: Is the GOP’s #NeverTrump Movement Over?

I know, I know, the last thing in the world I wanted to do was bring back my long-lost debate feature with one where I’m essentially saying the Republican Never Trump movement is over, but I had two equally bad choices: I could either debate a Bernie Sanders fan with why Bernie should drop out of the… 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 »

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 »

Clinton and Trump are the Nominees, Get Over It

In an article written a few days ago, I said March 15th would definitively tell us who would win the primaries. People scoffed, and I’m not one to say “I told you so” but Alabama Liberal’s election predictions are usually better than the ones people are paying big money to get on other media outlets,… Read More »

We’ll Know Who the Nominees are After March 15th

In the last A Year Long Conversation podcast, “Episode 12: Why March 15th is the Most Important Day of the Election” we both let it be known that March 15th is the most important day of the election. Now I’d like to go a step beyond that and say definitively that we’ll know who the… Read More »

Why Are Republicans Acting Like They Didn’t Write the Southern Strategy?

“Donald Trump is a racist!” “Donald Trump is getting support from the Ku Klux Klan!” “Donald Trump is drawing white supremacists becaue of his racially divisive rhetoric!” And that’s just what the Republicans are saying about him. The exact question of how racist Donald Trump is may be the best one of the campaign season.… 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). So people might look at Christie’s endorsement and think “who cares? Rubio… Read More »

It’s Trump’s World and the Rest of the GOP is Just Living In It

“Now is the time to get behind Rubio as the anti-Trump!” Too late. “Can Ted Cruz pull an upset?” No. “Maybe John Kasich could pull a rabbit out of his hat–” No, he can’t. Unless Donald Trump actually shoots somebody, he’s going to be the Republican nominee. And even then, his poll numbers will probably… Read More »

Just Where Does John Kasich Actually Plan to Compete?

I keep seeing recent stories that the GOP is strongly trying to push John Kasich off a cliff–I mean, give him a nudge to drop out of the race. They keep saying “It’s Rubio’s world and you’re just living it.” Now I disspelled that notion yesterday as I don’t think most Kasich voters are necessarily… Read More »
