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

If You Don’t Know How the Game Works, You Shouldn’t Opine on it, Allahpundit

Just a thing I picked up on while reading another “deep thought analysis” from Allahpundit. Cruz is going around telling reporters “it’s no surprise that more and more of the establishment is beginning to support Donald Trump” and meanwhile here’s Trump saying, yep, that’s correct. That’s a weird move to make in a season of

Michael, the Fuck-a-Bee

Sorry, Monty Python reference there. Anybody getting it gets a free subscription to the A.I.R. Pleasure Dome, aka B.C.’s House of Happiness. Speaking of candidates for whom the fat lady is singing loudly (thanks, LC purple raider), Mike Fuckabee really ought to be at the top of the list unless he dropped out already and

Wow, Even Pajamnesty Boy ¡Ruuuuuubio! is Trying to Cash in on the “New York Values” Feeding Frenzy Now

Of course, poor Pajamnesty Boy pretty much has to cling to every straw he can wrap his sweaty, limp fingers around. Moments later, Todd brought up the “New York values” line and asked Rubio what that phrase means to him. Rubio said, “I’ve never used that phrase. I think we’re all Americans. I’m campaigning on

In Case Anyone Bothered to Watch…

Because we certainly didn’t, we knew what the outcome was going to be, here are the results from the “who won?” poll after the Republican Debate tonight: TRUMP 47.11% (61,356 votes) CRUZ 24.41% (31,799 votes) PAUL 12.51% (16,295 votes) RUBIO 7.48% (9,737 votes) CHRISTIE 2.47% (3,218 votes) FIORINA 2.07% (2,694 votes) BUSH 1.67% (2,181 votes)

Well, We Guess We Can Write Off THAT Election Then

Now that we know that unelectable Mittens Obamneycare is pretty much certainly going to be Bob Dole, the Sequel. At least we might get the satisfaction of seeing Mr. Plastic Fantastic appearing in future Viagra commercials. Satisfying because it’s the sort of humiliation fitting for a sell-out opportunist who’ll do and say anything to get
