How to Flip the South–State By State

Sure, I’ve posted videos today talking about how to win over Trump’s base and exploring why poor Southerners vote Republican, but how do we flip each state from red to blue? Here are at least some answers, ranking each state from “most flippable” to “hopeless.” Disqualified: Virginia and Oklahoma. Virginia is disqualified not because it isn’t part of the Southeast–it… Read More »

Live-Blogging the VP Debate

This should be a real event. A boring guy with white-ish hair vs. a boring guy with very white hair… 6:00 p.m…even the pre-debate montage of these guys makes them look boring. I can almost hear the editor of this clip package “Hey guys, you can’t make a turnip sexy.” 6:05…A debate moderator I’ve never… 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 »

5 Reasons Elizabeth Warren Will NOT Be Hillary’s VP…

The shortlist is out. Apparently, Hillary has narrowed her search down to Julian Castro, Tim Kaine, and Elizabeth Warren. Although I’m little disappointed that Al Franken is out of the running, either Kaine or Castro would be a solid pick. [Though I wonder why she went with Virginia senator Tim Kaine over the other Virginia… Read More »

Working Class Economist: Grading Each Candidate for Your Wallet

  Working class people everywhere might feel like rejoicing since Ted Cruz has withdrawn from the race, but what’s the exact breakdown of each presidential candidate on most working class people’s wallets? John Kasich…The Good: Uhhh, I guess he offers hugs? The Bad: Nothing more expensive than a pregnancy you don’t want, and Kasich’s one-man mission to shut… Read More »

Why Can’t We Let Lewinsky Go?

A few days ago, a new podcast episode all about the differences between Republican sex scandals and Democratic sex scandals was posted. The discussion included the curious, paradoxical double-standard that the social conservatives (Republicans) were actually more likely to forgive a sex scandal than the socially liberal, anything-goes Democrats. Listed were examples of powerful Republicans who made… 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 »
