Politics as Performance Art?

© Tom Tomorrow It would be a fantastic performance, except for the fact that he has a chance of becoming our next president. Even worse, that more than a third of all Americans have been fooled into taking him seriously and actually want him to be president. And unfortunately, with his talk of how the […]

This is How Democrats Will Take Back the Senate

Ann Kirkpatrick is running for the Senate against John McCain. She has released a devastating ad that directly links McCain to Donald Trump, while showing Trump saying nasty things about McCain. This is how Democrats can use Trump as a weapon against Republicans: I’m noticing that Republican politicians are slowly announcing that they are not […]

Unscheduled Events at the RNC

There were many unscheduled events at the Republican convention, including plagiarism and speakers getting booed off the stage. But did you catch these? © Brian McFadden The cartoonist explains that he drew this comic before the convention started. Now that the Trump Show is over, how did reality compare to his satiric prediction?

Tim Kaine

I must admit that I wasn’t paying too much attention to the VP selection contest, and so when Clinton announced Tim Kaine as her VP pick, I didn’t know much about him. I know that people say he’s boring, or that he is too moderate. So I took some time today to investigate. I might […]

He’s Baaack!

Jill Stein: Just No.

Dan Savage has a good rant about recent third-party candidates titled “Dan Savage on Jill Stein: Just No.” The bottom line is that you don’t build a real political party just by running someone for president every four years. You actually have to do work, and get people elected at all levels: city, county, state […]

Make America Fear Again

Trevor Noah of the Daily Show has the best summary of the start of the Republican convention: As for Melania Trump and her plagiarism. As Noah says, who cares? If that’s what it takes for Republicans to cheer for Michelle Obama’s words, then they can steal all they want! What we should be worried about […]

RNC Recap

If you missed the first day of the Republican National Convention (like me, I was off on an island for the day, with no electricity or internet) Electoral Vote has a concise summary you should read. Quick summaries of the delegate revolt that was quashed, Paul Ryan’s vanishing act, red meat from Rudy Giuliani and […]

Positions

© Garry Trudeau Donald Trump seems to be the master of being everything to everybody, sometimes taking contradictory positions in the same day. Which should mean that people will figure out that you can’t believe anything he says. Instead, his run-on mouth seems to be working for him, giving him tons of free media exposure. […]

Swing State Stunner

While national polls are pretty consistent in showing Hillary Clinton leading Donald Trump, you have to remember that darn Electoral College, which makes national polls next to meaningless. The important thing is who wins the swing states. And in new polls of swing-states, Trump is leading Clinton in the mother of all swing states, Florida. […]

Trump’s Email Scandal?

The Trump campaign was caught sending fundraising emails to politicians. That wouldn’t be weird, except that they were sent to politicians in other countries, like the UK, Iceland, Australia, and elsewhere. It is hard to know where all the emails went, but there were a lot of them. Multiple email blasts were sent out both […]

Trump’s VP List

Donald Trump’s former campaign manager, who now works for CNN, says that there are “no more than four” names on Trump’s VP list. I wonder if that has anything to do with the fact that Trump has four children over the age of 21. Although Jimmy Fallon also has a different possibility:
