‘Hashtag He’s Your President’

  Inside their liberal echo chamber, hermetically sealed by epistemic closure, Democrats never have to consider the possibility that they’re wrong. Their friends at the New York Times and CNN all agree with them, as does every professor at Columbia, Yale and other major universities, and every celebrity in Hollywood. Democrats never talk to anyone […]

War on Women: Democrats Ready to Throw Nancy Pelosi Under the Bus?

  The irony here is rather delicious: In the aftermath of Democrats’ demoralizing election defeat, Representative Nancy Pelosi’s bid to return as minority leader has been transformed into a larger debate about what has gone wrong with a party that eight years ago controlled Congress and the White House. Ms. Pelosi, a 76-year-old San Francisco […]

‘Little Old Liberal White Ladies’

Kevin Williamson hits it brutally hard: The Democratic party is an odd apparatus in which most of the power is held by sanctimonious little old liberal white ladies with graduate degrees and very high incomes — Hillary Rodham Clinton, Elizabeth Warren, Randi Weingarten — while the manpower, the vote-power, and the money-power (often in the […]

‘No One Left to Lie To’

  Memory is a strange thing, and perhaps my memory is particularly strange, due to my adolescent adventures in freelance pharmaceuticals. People sometimes talk about teenagers “experimenting” with drugs. If so, I was the Enrico Fermi of drug experimentation. My college dorm room was to dope what the Manhattan Project was to nuclear physics, and I […]

‘The Rocky Horror Democrat Party’: Making History, Losing Elections

  Maybe they figured that having elected a half-Kenyan to the White House proved that Democrats could elect any random weirdo to any office anywhere, but 2016 proved them wrong. This year, Democrats decided Hope and Change meant nominating hopeless sex-change candidates. Misty Snow, Utah Democrat (left); Misty Plowright, Colorado Democrat (right). If you could […]

Democrats Surrender to ‘Fear Itself’

  Republicans are celebrating Happy Fun Victory Week with such amusements as video of Democrats saying Donald Trump would never be president. Democrats, meanwhile, are surrendering to despair. Now that the election is over, liberals are just beginning to notice the extent of losses Democrats have suffered at the state level during the Obama Era: […]

Hillary Finds Her Scapegoat

  This was predictable: Hillary Clinton on Saturday cast blame for her surprise election loss on the announcement by the F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, days before the election that he had revived the inquiry into her use of a private email server. In her most extensive remarks since she conceded the race to Donald […]

Terry McAuliffe’s Pyrrhack Victory

by Smitty The 9th of November, 2016 has a special flavor for those who live in the shadow of George Washington’s Mount Vernon estate. The homo bureaucratus infestation is so bad here that Her Majesty beat Trump at the polling station I support by roughly 3:1. Elections here are a genteel affair. There is no […]
