The Case For A “Dangerous” GOP

The Case For A “Dangerous” GOP

It is not uncommon throughout political history that a specific party, group, family, etc. would be as fragmented on a broad number of issues as is the case with the current Republican Party. It is even less unusual when you take into account that just once in the past 24 years (six elections) has a Republican presidential candidate received the[Read More…]

A Fish Called Huma

A Fish Called Huma

Or, Ruthless People, depending on your guilty pleasure for a spate of double cross cult classics from the mid 1980s.* The Clinton’s signature matrix was one of marital malfeasance and the ensuing lies made to the public and bargains between themselves for political expediency. They were at the top of their game as purely political animals went, trading intramarital emotional and[Read More…]

McConnell: In A Red State He Should Win, But Scott Brown To The Rest of Us

McConnell: In A Red State He Should Win, But Scott Brown To The Rest of Us

Mitch McConnell is not a wartime consigliere.  In fact, he’s cut out, at best, for the low bar set for minority leader and low expectations. Dan Spencer in RedState.com writes the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee  seems to be targeting him, both on twitter and in its press releases.  Dan wonders why the DSCC is messing with an (admitted underachiever) incumbent in a[Read More…]

Don’t Tweet It, Do It

Don’t Tweet It, Do It

As a 16-year-old, two years shy of voting eligibility, the game of politics plays out before me very much like a game of baseball. I tune in every day fully aware of my irrelevance to the situation that plays out before me. Of course, there is some sick delight to irrelevance. I may feel the consequences of this cruel game,[Read More…]

The Anthony Weiner Scandal-Horrible Example for Students

The Anthony Weiner Scandal-Horrible Example for Students

The new scandal following Anthony Weiner’s sexting is not only an embarrassment to New York City and our country, but it is setting a horrible example for the younger generation. When former U.S. Congressman Anthony Weiner took the consequences of his first scandal by resigning from Congress, I expected not to hear from him again. Less than two years later,[Read More…]

The Fallacy of “Teaching The GOP A Lesson”

The Fallacy of “Teaching The GOP A Lesson”

They don’t care if they lose. They are content to be in the minority. What other explanation could there be?   The backlash phenomenon that emerged in the 2000s was to “teach the GOP a lesson” by staying home or backing Libertarian candidates, as the sense grew that the 21st century GOP was nothing more than a “less of the[Read More…]

Rush and Hannity Will Be Just Fine, Here’s Why

Rush and Hannity Will Be Just Fine, Here’s Why

                                                    According to multiple sources Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity will be dropped by their parent radio dispenser Cumulus Media.  Now before jumping out of a window let me explain what’s really going on here.  (See story HERE) Cumulus is a very bad, bad company.  Not for their political stance or lack of, but because they are just flat a[Read More…]

Chaff

Chaff

  I remember back when President Obama had just started fundamentally transforming America and The Glenn Beck Show was in full diesel locomotive mode. I watched almost every day as new antagonist in a black hat was introduced or exposed every week. Van Jones, Jeff Blum, Cass Sunstein and Anita Dunn come to mind. Stimulus, Bailouts, Obamacare, Iraq capitulation, Fast[Read More…]

The Argument Against Defunding Obamacare Is We Have Nothing To Replace It With?

The Argument Against Defunding Obamacare Is We Have Nothing To Replace It With?

On paper, repealing Obamacare is something all Republicans appear to agree on. But the strife du jour is over whether to defund Obamacare using the CR, or continuing resolution in the Senate.  Many a CR passed the Boehner led congress with nary a hand laid on the funding mechanisms which fuel the implementation of Obamacare, or any real cuts for[Read More…]

Mythical Money Bombs For Candidates Not Running And The Elusive 80% We Agree On

Mythical Money Bombs For Candidates Not Running And The Elusive 80% We Agree On

In 2012 there was a fable of a vast treasure trove of big money donors, if only candidates like Chris Christie and Jeb Bush would throw their hat in the ring, and break the ice of the GOP “unelectables.”  As if the presumptive nominee and then frontrunner Mitt Romney wasn’t progressive enough, the cash of mega donors “sitting on the[Read More…]
