How I Chose “America’s Biggest Assholes” and the Runner-Ups

Choosing “America’s Biggest Assholes” is a daunting task. First, America is not as old as most other countries and there’s not–despite what you may have read about this or that President over the years–really “an American Hitler” or “an American Genghis Khan.” American ruthlessness is usually a more subtle and corporate-infused variety so that it’s sometimes… Read More »

Petty Issues: Democratic National Convention Edition

After Tim Kaine gave part of his VP acceptance speech in Spanish, Ann Coulter went furiously to work on her new book “How Tim Kaine Conspired with Hondurans to Ruin America! A Liberal Plot.” Seeing every big name Democrat in the known universe give speeches at the DNC this week seems a little lop-sided with… Read More »

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 »

Sunday’s Sermons: Ted Cruz and Roy Moore Gone in the Same Week, is Social Conservatism in Trouble?

I just can’t seem to wipe the smile off my face these days. It’s not every week that sees Ted Cruz drop out of The White House race amid much controversy and embarrassing moments that might compromise him down the road (although he’s not full-blown finished like Jeb and Rubio). And it’s an even rarer… Read More »

Larger Editorial: Conservative Never Trump is Dead, Long Live Liberal Never Trump

  The conservative version of The Never Trump Movement is dead. But that does not mean the Never Trump Movement itself is dead. The sad truth of the Never Trump movement is that it came paradoxically too late and too early. It arrived at the exact time it was too late to beat Trump in the Republican… Read More »

What’s Behind Trump’s “Midwestern Problem?”

Donald Trump has a uniquely Midwestern problem. If you closely look at the only states he hasn’t won, four out of five of them are Midwestern states. And I strongly suspect Ted Cruz won Alaska by tricking its residents into voting for a “Free Cruz” out of the state. So if you write-off Alaska as an outpost… Read More »

Who “Won” the Latest Republican Debate? Winning is Such a Relative Term…

Grading the candidates in the latest monster-truck-derby/bar-fight/”Debate” (quotes necessary for legal reasons) so you don’t have to…[watch it that is]. Ted Cruz…You would think Cruz would be riding high after “wins” on Super-Tuesday like his home state and the state that bordered his home state, but the bottom-line is that Cruz can not seem to… Read More »

GOP Supporting Ted Cruz? Really? Are They Trying to Lose to Trump?

Of all the strange stories that came out of Super-Tuesday, one of the weirdest may be that the GOP seems to be planning to dump Rubio at the exact moment he could actually win some states. I keep seeing different variations of people “questioning” Rubio’s chances. [Uhhhh, you think?] And speculating that maybe they should… 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 »
