Did Trump Feel Like He Was A Black Woman While Having Military Feelings?

by Smitty This blog is not clear whether an opportunity for modern emotional politics is being missed or not: the Republican presidential candidate and multibillionaire business tycoon said in a forthcoming book that he still “always felt that I was in the military” because he attended a military boarding school and “dealt with those people.” […]

Radical Feminism and the ‘Equality’ Trap

  Radical lesbian activist @EllenPage decided that @TedCruz needed a lecture from her about equality and discrimination: DES MOINES — Texas Sen.

by Smitty Ted Cruz has been made an utter fool over the Export-Import Bank, and seems maybe a tiny bit hacked off on the point. Watch and weep: “This Senate operates exactly the same [as the Reid era].” More at Ace. UPDATE: Ted doubles down on the Mark Levin show. Cruz is on after 16:10. […]

We Can Haz #PartyLikeIts1992?

Smitty I was doing some gags in the wee hours on Twitter, as one does when the one-year old has a 2AM wake-up: #Trumplebrags “I may have Mini-Cthluhu riding on my head, but I swear I’ve got it under control.” @RiepTide1999 @midnight — IGotOverMachoGrande (@smitty_one_each) June 17, 2015 “Over Macho Grande?

Mataconis Brings The Accidental Funny

by Smitty I’ve enjoyed banter with His Dougness for years. He’s certainly a prolific blogger, makes a lot of good points, and has the annoying tendency to gauge the realpolitik of a situation with a cynically accurate eye.
