Kasich Should Quit Now and Go Out on a High Note

John Kasich should quit. No, really, he’s done. Now that’s probably not an opener to an article you would expect about Kasich on a night when he won his first state of the primary season. But it’s exactly the kind-of thing you should expect and should be hearing, but probably haven’t heard since the media is desperate to keep… 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 »

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 »

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 »

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 »

Does John Kasich Have a Real Shot at Being President?

One of the biggest stories coming out of New Hampshire right now is John Kasich doing pretty well in second place. This isn’t entirely unexpected since Kasich has been polling at 15% to 18% for a while now, and that’s…well, almost exactly what he’ll wind up with. In fact, New Hampshire offered very little surprises,… 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 »
