If This is A “Pussy”, We’d Say We Need More of Them

We mentioned in a previous post that we found a Trump supporter’s accusation that Cruz is a “pussy” a bit harsh. Those were our words. We were trying to restrain our usual self. Uncharacteristically, we know, but still. We don’t want to alienate people who are just as pissed off as we are, even if

Better Disavow This Nutjob, Ted, and Right Quick, Too!

This was just brought to our attention by LC readerjp, G.L.O.R. WASHINGTON — A controversial Christian evangelical leader whose endorsement is being proudly trumpeted by Republican presidential hopeful Ted Cruz works energetically to convert Jews to Christianity and has predicted that there will be a new period of concentration camps for Jews before the return

The Fix is In…

OK, “only” about 40% of precincts reporting, but it looks pretty solid, according to AoSDD: DEMOCRATS Bernie Sanders 59,577 votes (–) 60.5% Hillary Clinton 37,750 votes (-21,827) 38.4% Other 1,103 votes (-58,474) 1.1% We don’t envy the Prozi voters. We thought we had it bad with “hold your nose” candidates, but they’re stuck with choosing

Oh heck…

When he’s right, he’s right: We do enjoy it when a candidate actually says what we’re all thinking. Now, if we were an advisor to the Cruz campaign, we’d encourage him to do the same. Then we’d watch everybody else get crushed. Illegal immigrants are “the backbone of our country”, unknown filthy socialist Sanders plant?

Cruz Wins!

As we write, Iowa is a lock for Cruz with 98% in and him holding 27.4% of the vote to Trump’s 24.9%. We’re surprised. Pleasantly so, we might add, because we weren’t expecting this. We knew it could go either way but, unlike the “pundits”, we weren’t quite as sure considering how many times those

The Non-Debate, Debate

Not that we watched it all that much, we mainly went through clips post-mortem, but it pretty much turned out to be exactly what we’d expected it to be. A prolonged shooting gallery with the “moderators” as the shooters. Only two things (OK, so three, it was fun watching ¡Yeb’s! new-found confidence, safe in the

Whose Side Are They On, Anyway?

No matter, according to Occam’s Razor, they’re probably just stupid. We talked about yesterday how FOX walked straight into Trump’s trap, and events since then have done nothing to dissuade us of that. As we said yesterday, all they had to do in response to Trump’s initial suggestion that Kelly not be on the panel

FOX Walks Into a Trap (UPDATED)

When Trump stated that Megyn Kelly shouldn’t be a moderator at the debate because of her bias (real or alleged), our Imperial Brain immediately started wondering what he was up to now. Sadly, a lot of other people, some of them very intelligent, focused instead on saying that he was just being a whiny little

Oh, But It Really Is Quite Simple, Quisling Party

We’re beginning to see quite a few articles popping up all over the ‘Nets written by terribly, terribly concerned “conservatives” arguing that this whole “civil war” on the right is really so unseemly and can’t we all just get along? Not to mention that almost every single one of those articles make a big whoop

If There’s Anything We DON’T Need More Of…

We just mentioned that there has to be better material than silly quotes out of context. Case in point: “I think the establishment actually is against me but really coming on line because they see me as opposed to Cruz, who is a nasty guy who can’t get along with anybody,” Trump said in an

And Now, A Publick Service Announcement

…about how not to make yourself look silly, and how it’s never a good idea, even if you believe it’s in a good cause. We’re sure everybody is aware of Trump’s “shooting somebody on 5th avenue” comment by now, and how it’s being reported. Here’s the FULL quote. Not the doctored one:” You know what

Ain’t Gonna Take it Anymore

Ace says it perfectly: But my priority is reforming the GOP into an institution which actually serves voters and not just the Chamber of Commerce and a dozen deep-pocketed, socially-liberal mega-donors, but a party that, when working class people tell them Disney is abusing the H-1B program to hire foreign workers and fire American ones,

Charge of the Light Brigade

By now everybody’s heard of the National Review’s “Against Trump” issue, in which they, as one, step up to distance themselves from that horrid “vulgarian”, Donald Trump, citing his lack of core, orthodox conservative principles (questioning if he has any at all) and loudly proclaim, suddenly rediscovering one of their founder’s most famous sayings, that

Surprise! Big Companies Contribute Money According to Self-Interest!

Film at eleven. The Wall Street mega-bank Goldman Sachs is a top donor to the 2016 presidential campaigns of establishment candidates Hillary Clinton, Sen. Marco Rubio, and Jeb Bush. Knock us over with a feather! Giant corporation donates money to candidates likely to return the favor if they win. Why, oh why don’t they donate

OK, That’s Just Ridiculous

Really, seriously… Trump saying that Cruz failing to file his Goldman Sachs loan with the FEC makes him “worse than Hillary?” We get it that this is a fight to the finish. They can’t both win, and it’s time for the final showdown between the two front runners in the primary. Politics ain’t bean bag
