Yahoos

© Nick Anderson I think the only good thing that came out of this farce was the fact that they finally arrested Cliven Bundy and his sons. These jerks pretended to be fighting for their rights (which is something I can respect) but they just turned out to be some rich entitled yahoos who felt […]

Cat Fight?

© Jen Sorensen Open warfare broke out in the Democratic party last week, with Bernie Sanders aggressively attacking Hillary Clinton. Clinton realized that retaliating directly would alienate Sander’s supporters even more, and she needs them for the general election. But surrogates, including Madelene Albright, Gloria Steinem, and even Bill, jumped into the fray. And it […]

Late Night Political Humor

“Donald Trump announced that he’s not going to participate in the Fox News debate tomorrow night. The other candidates are really excited to present their views in a serious, yet respectful manner — which means they haven’t been told that nobody is going to watch this one.” – Jimmy Fallon I have to believe Jeb […]

Legacy Obama?

Conservative David Brooks, who never had much good to say about Obama, has suddenly turned around with a column in the NY Times titled “I Miss Barack Obama“. Ignore for a moment that Brooks seems to forget that Obama is still in office and going strong. And Brooks still disagrees with most of Obama’s policy […]

Fool me again?

Ok, I agree with Bernie Sanders. I’m completely tired of news about Hillary Clinton’s private (but secured) email server. Latest “news” is that they found a whole 22 emails that contained some top secret information. Interestingly, Clinton was not the sender of those emails, they came from the CIA. But that hasn’t stopped the GOP […]

House Trained

© Jack Ohman Now that the Republican candidates are finally being narrowed down, the GOP establishment is trying to steer votes for the candidates that dropped out to Marco Rubio. Will it work? Or will when either Ted Cruz or Donald Trump drop out, will their anti-establishment votes go to the other? © Joel Pett

Sanders Attacks Moderates

This week, Bernie Sanders finally learned the wrong lesson from Republicans with a tweet aimed at Clinton that said “You can be a moderate. You can be a progressive. But you cannot be a moderate and a progressive.” Doesn’t this sound suspiciously like GOP conservatives calling moderates RINOs (Republicans In Name Only)? It is this […]

Obama Talks About Clinton and Sanders

There is an interesting interview in Politico with Barack Obama from a week before the Iowa caucuses, talking about the 2016 election and what he thinks about Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders: Bernie came in with the luxury of being a complete long shot and just letting loose. I think Hillary came in with the […]

Election News or Mis-information?

© Tom Tomorrow Ok, I need to clear up some misinformation that I’ve been seeing in almost all of the media. The media keeps reporting the popular vote totals from the Iowa caucuses. Based on the popular vote, they keep calling the results for Clinton and Sanders a “dead heat”. There is just one problem: […]

Good Results!

I think the results from the Iowa caucuses are the best outcome our country could have hoped for. For both parties, there was no clear winner. Ironically, this means completely opposite things for the two parties. On the Republican side, Ted Cruz pulled a surprise upset over Donald Trump, but Cruz is the evangelical candidate […]

Building Bridges

Today, Barack Obama will visit an Islamic mosque on US soil, his first visit to an American mosque, and second of any sitting president. Presidents rarely visit houses of worship, except for their personal worship. It will be interesting to see the reaction. After all, 29% of Americans think he is a Muslim pretending to […]

Caucus or Caca

© Jack Ohman Tonight is the Iowa caucus. No matter what the results, will it mean anything? Iowa is notoriously bad at predicting the outcome of the primaries, let alone the general election. But we will all be watching anyway.

Justice for Obama?

A common question of presidential candidates is what kind of Supreme Court justice they would appoint. But at a campaign event in Iowa on Tuesday, someone asked Hillary Clinton if she would consider nominating President Obama to the Supreme Court. Laughing in delight, Clinton replied “Wow, what a great idea. Nobody has ever suggested that […]

Why I Won’t Vote for Sanders

I love the fact that Bernie Sanders is running for president. Unlike most Democratic politicians he is not embarrassed to be called a liberal. Heck, he’s not even embarrassed to be called a socialist (even though he technically isn’t one). Like some Republican politicians he speaks his mind and doesn’t mince words, and unlike those […]

Best and Brightest?

© Jim Morin Donald Trump claims he hires the “best and brightest”, but often the record shows otherwise, unless what they are best at included being a con artist. And even if it were true, do we really want a president who is the delegator in chief? That sounds like the job done by Dubya, […]
