Chris Christie’s No Good, Very Bad, Horrible Week

Posted by: ST on March 2, 2016 at 5:23 pm » 5 Comments

When New Jersey Governor Chris Christie attempted to knee-cap Senator Marco Rubio’s campaign at a mid-January New Hampshire presidential debate, it didn’t make much sense. Christie struggled during his entire presidential campaign to gain traction in a crowded GOP field. But instead of pulling out all the stops against frontrunner Donald Trump that night, Christie […]

 

Which GOP candidate will benefit most from NC changing its presidential primary date?

Posted by: ST on July 27, 2015 at 5:55 pm » 2 Comments

In my latest at IJ Review, I discuss how North Carolina gearing up to change its presidential primary from May to March could potentially be good news for Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker more so than the rest of the crowded but diverse GOP field: In years past, if you were a Republican seeking the GOP […]

 

(Video) National Popular Vote and the attack on the electoral college

Posted by: Phineas on May 25, 2015 at 1:02 pm » 8 Comments

The Electoral College is one of the more obscure features of our government, yet it plays a crucial role: it elects the president, not the popular vote. When people in a state go to the polls, they’re really voting for slates of electors pledged to a particular candidate. The electors have traditionally honored the voters’ […]

Who said it? “The past 6 years have been really, really hard for this country”

If you guessed our VP Joe “Captain Gaffetastic” Biden, you’d be right (via Memeorandum): Philadelphia, Pa. (CBS DC/AP) – Vice President Joe Biden told Democrats Friday that the past six years have been “really, really hard” for the country and the Democratic Party. Speaking at the House Democratic Caucus retreat in Philadelphia Friday morning, Biden […]

 

#Hillary2016’s pre-campaign hires spark allegations of “white dudefest 2016”

Posted by: ST on January 26, 2015 at 5:29 pm » 6 Comments

The Daily Beast’s Tim Mak has an unintentionally hilarious piece on the state of La Clinton’s “pre-campaign” hires and how the current “all-white, all-male” cast has Democrat strategists hitting the panic button: Hillary Clinton’s pre-presidential campaign has made some high-profile hires recently—but all of them, so far, are white males. And Democrats have noticed. Does […]

Yeah, so this happened – and it wasn’t even supposed to. I didn’t have much time to spend at the blog writing about my experiences the last few months of the US Senate campaign battle between (outgoing) Senator Kay Hagan (D) and (now-Senator-Elect) NC House Speaker Thom Tillis (R).  But suffice it to say – […]

Not enough: DNC Chair apologizes (not really) for cheapening the meaning of domestic abuse

Posted by: ST on September 4, 2014 at 6:23 pm » 3 Comments

In an update to this post, the disgraceful, shameless Democratic National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, known for her insane, over-the-top, way beyond the bounds of basic civility, has issued a non-apology “apology” of sorts for her vile remarks likening Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker (R) to a physically abusive husband: Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman […]
