Evaluating the Obama coalition

The topic that didn’t get discussed often enough after the election is the viability of the so-called Obama Coalition. John Judis and Ruy Teixeira wrote a book titled “The Emerging Democratic Majority” that was based on the belief that demographics pointed to a permanent Democratic majority. Part of the description for their book says “In […]

About that Trump-Lewis feud

This Washington Post article didn’t highlight what’s actually happening. Abby Phillip’s article starts by saying “A public feud between Donald Trump and Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.) seemed to jettison any lingering hopes that the inauguration would temporarily ease partisanship in Washington and instead threatened to widen the rift between the two parties.” What’s actually happening […]

Ellison’s DNC campaign

Keith Ellison is hoping to turn his support of Bernie Sanders, then Hillary Clinton, into a winning message in his bid to become the next chairman of the Democratic National Committee (DNC). At this point, outsiders think Rep. Ellison is the leader to succeed Debbie Wasserman-Schultz as the full-time chair of the DNC. Whether DNC […]

The Best and Worst News of 2016

There was some genuinely good news in 2016, which is more than I can say for 2015 (my “best” development for that year was some polling data, followed by some small-ball tinkering). Though the good news for 2016 was mostly overseas. Here are the four things from around the world that made me happy this […]

Moving on to 2018 already

Josh Kraushaar’s article for the National Journal contains some early observations on the 2018 elections for the House and Senate. I agree with Kraushaar when he said “If Trump struggles in of­fice and Demo­crats be­ne­fit as the op­pos­i­tion party, their odds of win­ning a Sen­ate ma­jor­ity would still be nearly im­possible. A mere eight Sen­ate […]

The Electoral College and Democratic sore losers

The left is determined to undermine the credibility of the Electoral College. It’s best to think of this as their latest childish hissy fit. The Democrats’ latest hissy fit is to convince 37 Republican activists to shift their votes to Hillary Clinton. The chances of that happening are less than my chances of getting struck […]

2018 campaign: talk vs. action

This article highlights the Democrats’ initial strategy in defending a difficult Senate map in 2018. Sen. Heidi Heitkamp, (D-ND), is finishing her first term in the Senate. It wouldn’t be surprising it’s her only term in the Senate. Sen. Heitkamp said “Those Trump voters are the same people who elected me to the Senate. You […]

The Democratic civil war starts

This article in The Hill points to the Democrats’ uncivil war within the ranks. What’s important to highlight is the fact that both sides are right. For instance, The Hill reports that Robert Reich, Bill Clinton’s former Labor Secretary, said “This has been a huge refutation of establishment politics and the political organization has got […]

Mapping this election

If pictures are worth 1,000 words each, then this election has given us a ton of words worth pondering. Before getting to the pictures, though, it’s important to establish a foundation for why these pictures happened. Victor Davis Hanson wrote this article, which explains, at least in part, why Hillary was doomed before the start. […]

Dan Wolgamott: DFL’s puppet

The last 2 weeks of a legislative campaign are filled with mailers. This year isn’t an exception. Dan Wolgamott, the DFL-endorsed candidate for SD-14, touts himself as running a positive campaign. What he isn’t telling people is that the DFL is running his smear campaign for him. In fact, of the 4 lit pieces I’ve […]

The DNC’s den of iniquity

This summer, the Democratic Party faced a moment of truth right before their convention when they fired Debbie Wasserman-Schultz as their chair of the DNC. The woman picked to be the DNC’s interim chair, Donna Brazile, is apparently just as unprincipled as Ms. Wasserman-Schultz. This article highlights the fact that the upper echelon of the […]

Is Bernie Sanders Crazy, Blind, or Evil?

I live-tweeted last night’s debate between the Governor Mike Pence and Senator Tim Kaine. As the debate closed, I summed up my reaction with two tweets, one of which sadly observed that Donald Trump does not share Ronald Reagan’s belief in smaller government and more freedom. And because I’m fair and balanced, I also reminded […]

Democrats: for the little guy?

This article offers proof that, for all their speechifying to the contrary, the Democrats aren’t the party of the little guy anymore. We know that with certainty because they said no to a scholarship program that was helping minority and other low-income students escape the grinding poverty their parents endured. The opening paragraphs of the […]

Dumb Debbie, The DNC And The Wrath Of The Bernistas

Only MSNBC would headline this stuff as ‘cheers.’

San Fran Nan gets her corrupt behind booed offstage!

There’s a real poetic justice in seeing the Democrats, who have so often orchestrated violent chaos as a political tool eat a huge meal of it themselves. Especially when it was the Republican convention in Cleveland that was supposed to be the scene of mass riots and protests.

Bernie Sanders tepidly endorsing Hillary Clinton was bad enough as far as his followers were concerned. Now that the Wikileaks emails have surfaced and they see how the DNC had the whole system rigged for her from the very beginning and the dirty tricks they used to keep it that way, they’re outraged. Bernie supporters have hit the streets in massive numbers in protest…and one thing I saw that warmed my heart was hundreds of them chanting ‘Lock her up!’ about Mrs. Clinton, just like their Republican counterparts.

She may have avoided prison in one of the sleaziest, most disgraceful episodes in American political history, but in the court of public opinion, she’s guilty as hell except among the True Believers and the bought and paid for.

Aside from revealing the dirty tricks used to torpedo Bernie Sanders, the e-mails revealed in full detail exactly how much cynical disdain the the movers and shakers of the Democrat party have for the people and special interest groups they pretend to care about. Jim Hofts at Gateway Pundit has a rundown of links:

(Lots more at Gateway Pundit.)

Of course, Dumb Debbie took the heat as fall girl and resigned as DNC head, but most people know that she was only following orders like a Good German. It hasn’t cooled things down at all.

And the same prog fascist tactics are still in evidence now, even after the DNC’s ‘apology’. DNC operatives are roaming all over the arena seizing  any ‘Bernie’ signs they can find, and the DNC even twisted Bernie’s arm to text his young minions and beg them not to protest on the convention floor. So far, it hasn’t done any good at all…Bernie Sanders lit a fire even he can’t control any more.

One amusing sidelight is the fantasy of certain #neverTrump maniacs that Putin is behind the Wikileaks release to help Donald Trump. Such conspiracy theories are always amusing. Vladimir Putin would love to see Hillary elected. She’s corrupt, not too bright and if she becomes troublesome in the least, all he has to do is slide a folder towards her containing copies of some of the juicy e-mails the Russians hacked from her private unsecured server to blackmail her into subservience.

The real fun, of course, will come when Mrs Clinton has to address the convention, which includes over a thousand Bernie Sanders delegates. The DNC might be able to drag off any protesters but delegates?
That’s all Mrs. Clinton needs, especially after Donald Trump threw out a strong, direct message to the Bernie supporters in his speech last week.

I expect the usual suspects to manufacture a ‘bounce’ in the polls, but I think for once, her karma is catching up with her. I mean, does anybody really believe that ‘advocate for women ‘ horse manure?

Sanders is the latest sellout

When Elizabeth Warren endorsed Hillary Clinton, Sen. Warren’s supporters accused her of selling out to Wall Street and Goldman-Sachs. They were right. Sen. Warren sold out to Wall Street without hesitation. During her interview with Rachel Maddow, Sen. Warren said “I’m ready to get in this fight and work my heart out for Hillary Clinton […]
