Petty Issues: Donald and Jeb “The Tortured Bromance” Edition…

[Author note: Don’t worry guys, with Super-Tuesday right around the corner, we’ll have some good stuff up this weekend. But as I take a small break with petty issues over a larger editorial, you might want to check out this week’s new podcast, episode ten was just posted and it’s loaded with good stuff.] I… 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 »

Jeb Bush Really Was Like His Dad: A Man Out of Sync with His Era

South Carolina brought another casualty in the 2016 Presidential race: Jeb Bush. It’s also possibly the last one we’ll see for a while, since Rubio and Kasich both believe they should be the anti-Trump nominee, Ted Cruz’s dirty tricks will grow worse, and Ben Carson is adamant that he’s staying in the race…for some reason.… Read More »

Why Bernie Can’t Beat ANY of the Five GOP Potential Nominees

I know, I know, Bernie’s fans won’t believe a word I say about him or his electability chances, but I’m hoping against hope that I can convince at least some people before it’s too late. Realistically, there are five GOP candidates who could be the nominee (sorry Ben Carson). When you really start to crunch… Read More »

Petty Issues: Jeb, George, Trump, and Cruz…A Rogue’s Gallery of Humanity’s Worst

Jeb Bush rolled out his secreat weapon: his brother, the worst president in modern times. Watching these two campaign together reminds me of when the Special Ed kids go to the City Council meeting to learn about Government. It’s the first time I’ve ever seen a bullet-proof short bus… Speaking of Jeb’s family connections, the… Read More »

Live-Blogging the GOP Debate…This Should Be a Good One

6:00–How will Scalia’s death affect this debate? We’re about to find out… 6:01–It should be a barn-burner. Chief asshole Ted Cruz has already said he wants to wait until next year for a replacement which would be unprecedented. 6:02–This phony debate begins with a moment of silence which is more than most candidates gave before… Read More »

Could Trump Actually Be the Nominee? It’s Looking That Way…

Trump’s “stunning” win in New Hampshire (so says a media that thinks a months-long polling advantage is surprising) may be a bigger deal than it at first appears. “But Alabama Liberal, you just said Bernie’s win was no big deal?” That’s right, but that’s because the state is Bernie’s backyard, lilly-white, and he’s not polling well… Read More »

Is Trump TRYING to Lose This Race? 2 of 3

[Note: Are you guys digging this new serialized format? No. Oh okay, we’ll excuse me for experimenting five years in. Yeesh, try to do something different…] Where was I? Right, so Trump was mad that Ted won Iowa through dirty tricks, and it let Ted ….s army of writers open up a Twitter trend with “Trumpertantrum.”… Read More »

Live-Blogging ANOTHER GOP Debate…This is a Full-Time Job

Another GOP debate? This is becoming a full-time job… 5:20–Ben Carson is refusing to walk out on stage…for some reason. 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 »
