Please Stop Talking about Donald Trump

Reading Time: 2 minutes Talking about Donald Trump’s presidential campaign is about as useful as discussing Lincoln Chafee’s or George Pataki’s ambitions for the White House — except those two actually held elected office at one point. Yet, if you’re a ‘name’ in America, you can be a politician. Ok, ok, it’s a bit rich (pun intended) to request that Read More

Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush are Running on the Same Ticket

Reading Time: 3 minutes Gore Vidal once quipped that there is only one party in the United States, “The Property Party…and it has two right wings.” Thus is the state of the 2016 campaign over the last 96 hours. Hillary Clinton ‘relaunched‘ her campaign on Roosevelt Island over the weekend and Jeb Bush, finally, declared his candidacy. While these Read More

Mitt Romney’s Coup

Reading Time: 2 minutes For the fourth consecutive year, Mitt Romney is hosting a summit of  GOP political figures, money men, and right-leaning theorists. Some of these bigwigs include Chris Christie, Marco Rubio, Carly Fiorina, John Kasich, and Lindsey Graham.

Scott Walker, Professor of Education

Reading Time: 3 minutes Conservatives and Republicans supposedly love Scott Walker. Why? Because he is Union busting? Maybe, but recent data suggest that Unions aren’t as unpopular as they seem.

These things can be very popular for a prospective Read More

Lindsey Graham thinks Kim Jong-un is easier to talk to than Hillary Clinton.

Reading Time: 1 minute “Well, it’s easier to talk to the North Korean guy than it is her” Lindsey Graham is making our job easy. At least our job of comparing his far-Right rhetoric to the far-Left views of Bernie Sanders. However, as publications like The L.A. Times and others have pointed out, Bernie Sanders socialist views are quite popular. At the Read More

Lindsey Graham Files, Part II: Kissing Netanyahu’s Ring

Reading Time: 1 minute We speculated yesterday that Lindsay Graham is the Right’s version of Bernie Sanders.

Marco Rubio vs the LGBT Crusades and Crusaders

Reading Time: 1 minute For Marco Rubio, the increased tolerance of LGBT lifestyles is not tolerance at all. It’s the opposite — it’s the downfall of Christianity.: “After they are done going after individuals, the next step is to argue that the teachings of mainstream Christianity, the catechism of the Catholic Church, is hate speech and there’s a real Read More

Come one, come all to Barbara Bush’s Birthday Bash…if you have the cash

Reading Time: 1 minute Cover fee? Just a slim $5,000 “It won’t be just any party but also a fund-raiser for the Barbara Bush Foundation for Family Literacy. Co-hosting the June 8 event are two of the former first lady’s children: presumptive 2016 Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush and his sister, Doro Bush Koch.

Is Lindsay Graham the GOP version of Bernie Sanders? 

Reading Time: 1 minute On the political spectrum, they’re opposite. However, while Sanders attempts to pull prospective frontrunner Hillary Clinton to the Left, is Graham corralling GOP candidates to the far Right? If not, statements like this don’t help his – or the GOP’s – cause: “My family owned a restaurant, a pool room, and a liquor store. And Read More
