Any Adults Out There?

We’ve watched more then once as the GOP has pissed away elections they should have won in a walk. But this time, they have really screwed the pooch. It all could have been avoided if the candidates themselves understood the basic realities pointed out in my book. Having failed to do so (Trump follows only […]

Love Letter to Trump Supporters

I am going to ask Trump fans to park their credulity for just a few minutes and read this piece with an honest and open mind. I have said many times here that no one has been harder on Trump than I am. I also said, until a month ago, that no one wanted him […]

The F**king Bridge Is Out!

Next Tuesday’s News In about 48 hours (3/15/16), if the polls are accurate, Marco Rubio will officially become the Michael Dukakis of the Republican party. By holding on, out of ego or poor judgement, for too long, he will hang the sign “loser” around his own neck. And I’m not saying that in the sense […]

Post Debate Quick Shout-Out Series: Kasich

John Kasich had his best night so far. The previous debate wasn’t too bad either. It isn’t likely to help him. Even if he wins Ohio, a huge IF, he is not going to be president. He won’t even be the nominee. He pretty much has his portion of the kindly grannies and McConnell Republicans […]

Post Debate Quick Shout-out Series: Cruz

This was not Cruz’s best debate by far. He was to evasive of direct questions, appearing as if he were going to make a related point and work back around to the answers. Instead he avoided answering the question altogether. His mannerisms have become absurd. I make jokes about his gay priest sermon-delivery style. It […]

Post Debate Quick Shout-out Series: Trump

Last debate before Florida and Ohio. Donald Trump has turned in some sorry performances in past debates. The press has been very accommodating. And, why not? They want him to win the nomination so they can REALLY tear into him starting in July. But no one can look at last Thursday night and come away […]

Why Romney F**ked Everything Up!

I submitted a column to the Sun Herald and Sunherald.com today. I hope they pick it up. And not just for the byline. I really think Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio are dangling from a thread. Instead of helping, Mitt Romney seems to have brought out the scissors. Before I explain case, I’d like to […]

What You May Not Have Considered!

My old boss used to say, give me the bottom line up front. He used the acronym BLUF all the time. With that in mind, I know there are many people who won’t need the detail in this piece. So I will sate my case here. In this election, much more important than who we […]

I'm Not Completely Heartless!

If you visit here, even occasionally, you know I am very hard of Trump. Part of that is simple, cold analysis. Part is because his cult following has required nothing from him and leap for joy with his every utterance, even those that run contrary to their interests. And there are many. However, there is […]

Bam! Right again! Wake Up, Y'all!

This week has proven every word I have said about Trump and more. This post is for thinking people. For writing it, the Trump-ettes, goobers who belong to his cult, will simply declare me a member of “the Establishment”; as if they even know what that means. So you can relax, learn a bit and […]

A Love Letter to SC, et al. Dump the Cults! Part II

Until a few weeks ago, the standard-bearers of the conservative movement most often cited by the average conservative were Sean Hannity, Mark Levin, Ted Cruz, sometimes Rand Paul, sometimes Bill O’Rielly. Certainly Rush and FOX News. The female darling of the right was, of course, Megyn Kelly. Did you know that they are all either […]

A Love Letter to SC, et al. Dump the Cults! Part I

If you have friends and people in your social network from South Carolina, Nevada or the SEC states, please send this to them. What follows needs to be said and no one is saying it. Let me first address the black citizens of South Carolina and upcoming primary states.[1. Note I didn’t patronize you with […]

Change the Game!

In mid 2015, Lyn and I walked away from a six-figure income to live a simpler life and so I could pursue a new career as a writer. With my first book, a political primer ahead of future works, I think I really hit on some ideas that are being proven right with almost every […]

Politics Is Inevitable

The one thing we need to keep in mind is that while BHO and the Iranian-born Valerie Jarrett will surely appoint a candidate to the bench who will be to Jarrett’s liking, the Senate is under no obligation to act on it. What the Senate does have to do is what the Democrat Senate did […]

Peter Pan for President!

Carly Fiorina has been on my short list for a potential endorsement since she started her campaign. I never quite got over her affinity for data mining of personal information, but I respected her as a candidate and a person. With her announcement today, there are no adults left in the field in either party. […]

Schadenfreude Dreamin'!

FOX is already calling it for Sanders at just after 7:00 PM. It is shaping up to be a terrible night for Clinton…and his wife, for that matter. If you’ve read anything I’ve written, you know that I pretty much like everybody. When I thump someone for political reasons, you know it is just business. […]

Debate: The Down and Dirty

I won’t go into a deep analysis tonight. This was a pretty clear result. The governors outclassed the senators. The business women wasn’t there because Reince Prebus is a first-rate pussy. Trump, in the eyes of everyone but his devoted rubes was, as usual an ignoramus. Key moments. Christie manhandled Rubio. After he accused Rubio […]

If You Can't Say Something Nice…

Okay, as promised, here goes. Bernie Sanders: How can you not like this guy? If not for politics, he’d be at home, yelling in the distinct Sanders meter: “Hey you kids — get off–my goddamn lawn!” He is a character. He doesn’t even comb his hair. You don’t have to agree with the guy to […]

Will the Smelly Cheese Stand Alone?

It’s been an interesting day for political wonks. For starters, we lost one of the few adults on the GOP side today. Rand Paul is a level-headed, honest man. He will not abandon a principal for tawdry gain. I have a lot of respect for the guy. Sadly, as I said here before, he never […]

It's Time to Arrest Hillary Ramrod Cinton!

The greatest advantage HRC has in keeping her campaign alive, and her old ass out of jail, is the half-hour news cycle and citizens with the attention span of a puppy in a yard full of squirrels. News programs these days are loaded with little more than teasers about what is actually happening in the […]
