Is It Over For Chris Christie?

Just now, his campaign released a statement that he was thinking about what to do with his largely-failed presidential run. This is a far cry from a guy who said right before the New Hampshire primary that “even if I place sixth, I’m going to South Carolina.” Well, 6th place might be too hopeful. Christie… Read More »

Episode 7–Is the Drug War Really a Race War?

In the 7th episode of “A Year Long Conversation” we ask the tough questions: was Ben Carson dreaming of cartoons during refusal to take debate stage? Did Rubio-bot malfunction or get his casing wet when he repeated the same thing several times? Did Ted Cruz really have a human sister or was he (as we… Read More »

But Seriously, Why in the Hell is Jim Gilmore Still in This Race?

“What do you think Jim Gilmore is doing right now?”–No one, ever. Or at least not since this race has started. In fact, many of you right now are thinking “Who’s Jim Gilmore?” Which is perhaps the reason that the former Virginia governor-turned-presidential laughing stock got a measly twelve votes in Iowa. Huffington Post interviewed one of… Read More »

What if Hillary Actually Wins New Hampshire? The Upside of Fighting Back

Okay, so I don’t think Hillary will actually win New Hampshire, unfortunately. Still, if you look at the poll numbers over the last few days, it does seem like a staggering change of fortune. Roughly a week ago, Bernie had as much as a 30-point lead, and perhaps closer to 35-points. The fact that someone could write… Read More »

But Seriously, Why Don’t Young Women Support Hillary?

As I just pointed out, the only category of women that Hillary doesn’t do well in is women under the age of 30. Now, I kind-of find this hard to believe since among celebrity women she’s doing terrific with the Amy Schumers, Lena Dunhams, Natalie Portmans, and even Taylor Swifts, and it’s the women roughly in her… Read More »

Actually, Hillary Does Amazing with Female Voters

The media keeps touting the headline “Bernie beats Hillary in women!” Or some such variation of the idea that Hillary is a dismal failure who can’t even attract female voters the way Obama attracted black voters in ’08. Forgetting that Hillary polled better than Obama in black voters and they only gradually started voting for… Read More »

Neither Hillary (Nor Her Supporters) Are “Sexist”

We’ve seen a great number of hyperbole and hysteria in this (seemingly) never-ending primary season. [George R. R. Martin was right, Winter will last for years.] Still, perhaps nothing has been as greatly misrepresented or faux-outraged over than the ridiculous assertion that Hillary Clinton is somehow sexist towards women. It “started” with Madeleine Albright and… Read More »

Who’s Got the Cure to New Hampshire’s Heroin Problem?

Which candidate puts forth the best solution to New Hampshire’s heroin problem? In fact, which candidate even said any solution to the problem? And is there really a solution to America’s drug problem outside of the (proven) failure of The War on Drugs?… For more listen to episode 7 of “A Year Long Conversation” that’ll be posted in… Read More »

Is Trump TRYING to Lose This Race? The Conclusion…Try Not to Die of Excitement

[And so ends our trilogy of articles. Who says bloggers don’t know how to build suspense with unnecessary cliffhangers? Hey, at least I didn’t make the too-frequent mistake of internet journalism by writing a 30-paragraph article just because I can, word count be damned…] It’s no secret that Trump doesn’t get along with Jeb Bush… 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 »
