Totes Sure That Trump U. Is Absolutely The Only Scam Associated With Donald

by Smitty Happy Labor Day. I’ve certainly been busy. But not too busy to get a laugh out of ‘They’re a bunch of frauds’: Former Trump University students say The Donald shouldn’t be president, school was a scam Really, people: In a lawsuit pending in Manhattan Supreme Court, New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman says […]

A Cheap ‘Rape’ Smear on Trump

Let’s begin by saying I’m not a fan of Donald Trump, personally or politically. The first time he spoke at CPAC, Trump made a lot of protectionist noise in regard to China that struck me as both ignorant and irresponsible. Protective tariffs are just bad economics, as every intelligent person has understood since Adam Smith […]

About the #Cuckservative Thing: By Whom Is the ‘New Right’ Being Trolled?

My temptation is to name names of “New Right” friends who can vouch for my bona fides, but why help the SPLC connect the dots, eh? When Ace of Spades called attention to the #cuckservative hashtag attack on conservatives, I was puzzled. WTF is this? Well, today they started jumping up in my Twitter mentions, […]

Rand Paul did it right today: Rand Paul says he doesn’t want to be grilled about abortion until Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz answers similarly tough questions. . . . Paul, the Kentucky Republican senator who launched […]

Fundraising Idea: RINO Scalps

by Smitty via Hot Air USA Today: “The grass roots in Arizona want McCain to retire or be replaced by a conservative in the primary next year,” said Ken Cuccinelli, the former Virginia attorney general who now is president of the Senate Conservatives Fund. Glad that Cuccinelli continues to do the good work of recovering […]

Why I’m Not A Campaign Manager

by Smitty I’m a huge Ted Cruz fan. I like the fact that he is willing to admit that the ethanol mandate is bogus and needs to go. I’d love to see him do this, but it would probably be a Bad Move: He won't do it, but if Cruz walked on dressed as Jake […]

Sympathy For The Prodigal Chief Justice

by Smitty That leaves Chief Justice John Roberts, who was uncharacteristically quiet. If I had to guess, Roberts is less than pleased to find this political hot potato back in the lap of a court he devoutly wants the public to see as nonpartisan. Further, having been identified, and assailed by conservatives, as the late-deciding […]
