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 »

Petty Issues: So Long Ted Cruz…You Will Not Be Missed

[Ted Cruz Edition] Ted Cruz exited the race after losing Indiana primary by huge numbers. He needed to spend more time accidentally elbowing his wife in the face, forcing his daughter to hug him, and taunting the police with letters of his accomplishments as The Zodiac Killer. [Cruz and his family reminds me of the… Read More »

Is the Ted Cruz Sex Scandal Real?

I’ve been noticing two big stories in the last week: Ted Cruz’s growing sex scandal and the media’s outright refusal to talk about it. A few people I know have even said “There’s a Ted Cruz sex scandal?” And these are people that regularly watch the news. For those that don’t know—-and given the media’s… 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 »

Super Tuesday Predictions For Each State…

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 »

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 »

It’s Not Kasich or Bush That’s Holding Rubio Back, It’s TED CRUZ

The biggest problem in forecasting races is that political pundits think voters are paying attention to the same things they are. They assume an electorate is more focused on individual issues or any real issues than individual (physical) traits or personalities. They leave out the “science” that voters gravitate towards candidates that remind them of themselves, regardless… Read More »
