Thanks to the polls, or lack thereof, CNN alters debate criteria to include Carly Fiorina

Good. After delivering what was probably the best performance seen in both of the August GOP debates, Carly Fiorina has been enjoying a bump in the polls. According to the Real Clear Politics average, she's now in 7th place.  Granted, she's only polling at about 5.8%, which is well behind the likes ... continue reading

Breaking: Dem. Barbara Mikulski becomes 34th vote for Iran nuke 'deal' - protecting it in Congress

Brace yourself for a nuclear Iran.  It's a big day for the alliance between Democrats and the world's number one terrorist state. Senator Barbara Mikulski (D-MD) has just announced that she will support President Obama's "deal" with Iran, guaranteeing that the plan will be safe from any GOP attempt to ... continue reading

And here come the ads... Trump and Jeb lash out at each other.

Well, that didn't take long. If there are two guys in the GOP field who really don't seem to care for each other, it's Jeb Bush and Donald Trump.  Trump labelled Bush a "low energy" person who "doesn't really want to be doing what he's doing" and Bush has referred to Trump as a "clown," a ... continue reading

Having solved all other problems, Obama renames Mount McKinley

If they wasted 5 minutes on this, it was too long. As you know, Obama is the greatest President in the history of the United States. He secured our borders, fixed healthcare, healed race relations, decimated Al Qaeda, and reduced ISIS to its current "J.V. Team" level of effectiveness. Oh, and he also lowered ... continue reading

America's Next Top President? Kanye West anounces 2020 candidacy, will challenge President Trump

First Lady Kardashian.  Back in the 80's, the woefully underappreciated Max Headroom show posited a future where each TV network would select a presidential candidate and whoever got the best ratings would win the nation's top job. The basic gist of it was "American politics as reality show" and, at the ... continue reading

Minn. Terrorism suspect granted class-A truck driving license. Would also like to drive school busses.

Semis and school busses. What could go wrong? I don't even really know what to say about this.  Is it insane? Yes.  Is it further evidence that this country isn't really interested in dealing with the threat of homegrown radical Islam? Yes. Is it a painfully obvious recipe for disaster? You bet. ... continue reading

Hillary: Republicans who want to defund Planned Parenthood are pretty much terrorists

The stench of desperation  Let's say you've been in politics for thirty or forty years.  You're crooked, corrupt, and mad with power. Your long history of deceit is well documented, but you've decided it's your turn to be President. So, you're running for the nation's top job. To your consternation, ... continue reading

MSNBC sends Al Sharpton to the graveyard of forgotten shows

Marching to Sunday at dawn. Whatever else Al Sharpton may be, he's not an idiot. Sure, he's a tax cheat, his grip on reality is tenuous, he's barely literate, and his knowledge of American politics is dwarfed by that of the average two-year-old, but he's no dummy.  Somehow, he managed to parlay his life as a ... continue reading

Poll: Almost half of likely voters want Hillary to suspend her campaign over email scandal

Because they didn't want her in the first place. The latest poll numbers contain more terrible news for Hillary and her supporters.  According to Rasmussen, nearly half of all likely voters think Mrs. Clinton should suspend her campaign until she's managed to extricate herself from the ongoing - and ... continue reading

Trump boots Univision anchor from presser - 'he was ranting and raving like a madman'

Jorge Ramos - more activist than reporter. "You haven't been called...go back to Univision." That was the message from Donald Trump shortly before Univision anchor Jorge Ramos was booted from a Trump presser yesterday.  Ramos hadn't been called on, but was determined to ask his questions regardless.  To ... continue reading

Guess who had yet another secret, personal, email account. Nope, it's not Hillary - it's Lois Lerner.

Not a smidgen.   To date, we've been aware of two email accounts used by disgraced IRS official Lois Lerner. The first was her official government account and the second was a personal home account. Both have produced materials salient to the ongoing investigation into the IRS targeting of conservative ... continue reading

Dem. Senator & Hillary supporter: There's really no policy difference between Hillary and Bernie Sanders

Socialists of a feather.... You'll probably recall that, about a month ago, Chris Matthews managed to completely stump Debbie Wasserman Schultz with one simple question. "What's the difference between a Democrat and a Socialist?" Debbie was completely dumbfounded.  She stammered a bit, tried to deflect, and ... continue reading

Planned Parenthood finally finds a worthy ally - the Satanic Temple of Detroit

Planned Parenthood must be so proud!  Back in high school, they hung out behind the gym, comparing Bauhaus t-shirts, smoking, and despising the "phony corporate trappings of post-war suburban America." Then they (sort-of) grew up. It quickly became clear that they were too dysfunctional to succeed in the ... continue reading

Congressional Dems launch investigation into the group that exposed Planned Parenthood's atrocities

..But not Planned Parenthood itself.  Congressional Democrats are outraged by the recent spate of seven horrific undercover Planned Parenthood videos. Sadly, they're not the least bit concerned with what's on the tapes.  Baby mutilation is, apparently, no big deal. Instead, they're worried ... continue reading

Two pro-Hillary PACs to spend 'at least $20 Million' in effort to revive antiquated War on Women chestnut

Suddenly the war is back on. Let's see...  The Democrat "bench" currently consists of a pair of elderly white socialists, both of whom have been in politics for decades, and one of which is widely viewed as completely untrustworthy. They are, for all intents and purposes, a party whose entire 2016 campaign ... continue reading

Reporter: Using the term 'anchor baby' is offensive. Trump: Boo Hoo, I'm using it.

Politically incorrect? Tough.  As you're no doubt aware, saying 'Donald Trump isn't interested in political correctness' is a little bit of an understatement. The one constant in his campaign has been that he says what he wants, how he wants, and if you're going to try to challange him on it, you're in for a ... continue reading
