BANNON OUT AT WHITE HOUSE

  “Dance with the one that brung ya,” is always good advice in politics. Elected officials must represent the people who elected them, and the guy whose mission it was to speak for those people inside the Trump White House was Steve Bannon. It was Bannon’s self-chosen task to fight what he called “the Deep […]

Look for the ‘Hate’ Label (or, Why Everybody’s a ‘Far-Right’ Extremist Now)

  Who is Kevin Panetta? He is the writer behind a comic book called Zodiac Starforce, which looks a lot like a ripoff of Sailor Moon, but that’s irrelevant to his role as a volunteer with the Thought Police. Panetta got more than 45,000 retweets and more than 80,000 likes for his assertion that disagreeing […]

Language Alert: “Conservative Opposition To #Obamacare Repeal”

by Smitty Emphasis mine: Privately, senior Republican lawmakers and staff are more blunt.

A Balm For Conservatives In Trumpreich

by Smitty Given time constraints and general bewilderment at the Democrat takeover of the GOP, there just hasn’t been much to say. Hopefully Darleen will get Friday Fiction going again. On Twitter, it’s been an endless parade of horribles if I don’t join the Trumpenproletariat. Fortunately, the indispensable Jonah Goldberg offers a fine read to […]

Fear And Loathing In Reno: What I Saw At The Nevada State GOP Convention

— by Wombat-socho It all started at the chaotic Clark County Republican convention back in April, which I attended as an alternate from my precinct and wound up leaving early so I didn’t miss too much of a Saturday in the tax mines. Shortly before my departure, volunteers for the Cruz campaign encouraged me to […]

Cruz, Sanders Win Wisconsin

Tuesday was a bad night for front-runners in both parties: Senator Ted Cruz soundly defeated Donald J. Trump in the Wisconsin primary on Tuesday, breathing new life into efforts to halt Mr. Trump’s divisive presidential candidacy and dealing a blow to his chances of clinching the Republican nomination before the party’s summer convention. With more […]
