The Iowa Caucus Is Rape Culture

Does that headline make sense? Of course not, but I’ve been reading so much feminist literature lately, I’ve come to realize that expecting headlines to make sense is patriarchal oppression. “Shut the f–k up! Because patriarchy!” To a feminist, everything is rape culture, and so the Iowa caucus must be part of it somehow. When […]

IOWA CAUCUS PREDICTION

Jeb Bush will lose. The question is, will he be crushed, embarrassed and humiliated so badly that he quits? Probably not: Jeb Bush’s supporters have spent $15 million on slickly produced ads to win over Iowa voters. Barely registering in the polls and increasingly desperate in the shadow of the Iowa caucuses, he’s now trying […]

Democrats, Feminists and Other Liars

  Let’s begin with something that should be obvious, but which has seldom been stated explicitly: There is no objective reason for the recent upsurge of radical feminism in the United States. However bad sexism is today, it is not worse than it was five years ago or 10 years ago. In fact, there is […]

Will Cruz Cruise or Get Trumped?

  The battle for Iowa seems to be coming down to Texas Sen. Ted Cruz vs. Donald Trump. Of course, there are likely to be five candidates still in the race after the Feb. 1 Iowa caucuses, but the debate Thursday highlighted the clash between Cruz and Trump: Donald Trump and Ted Cruz clashed Thursday […]

Real Feminists Support Bernie Sanders

  One of the things I notice while searching feminist Tumblr accounts is the high level of support for Bernie Sanders. This wouldn’t seem to make sense — shouldn’t feminists support Hillary Clinton? But feminism is a left-wing movement and Sanders is an unapologetic socialist, plus Hillary Clinton has a history of defending “rape culture”: […]

Ace of Spades Goes Full-On Populist?

Because I’ve been up to my ears in radical feminism for the past year, I haven’t monitored the day-to-day developments of the GOP presidential primary campaign the way I did during the 2012 cycle. As a result, I am unaware (and really, do not care) which of my blogger friends are supporting which candidate. My […]

Rubio Knocks Out Jeb Bush in Debate

  The general consensus, and also my own personal opinion, is that Marco Rubio was the big winner of Wednesday’s Republican presidential debate on CNBC. Polls have shown Rubio stuck in the second tier behind the two “outsider” candidates who are the current front-runners, Donald Trump and Ben Carson. Rubio is young, smart and articulate, […]

Martin O’Malley’s Legacy of Failure

When former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley declared his presidential candidacy, the Democrat’s record as governor for eight years, after being mayor of Baltimore for eight years, was an obvious hindrance: Martin O’Malley launched his presidential campaign Saturday with an appeal to the party’s progressive base that he hopes will upend the conventional wisdom that Hillary […]
