Debate Aftermath: The Media React

When I asked Thursday if anybody had watched Wednesday’s Trump-less Republican debate, I didn’t realize my blog buddy John Hoge had subjected himself to that ordeal, his account of which concludes with the question: “Is it 2025 yet?” Meanwhile, in the corporte media . . . Chris Christie hit with ‘lots of boos’ after GOP […]

Did Anybody Watch the Debate?

The Network That Fired Tucker Carlson™ hosted a debate Wednesday night between Ron DeSantis, Vivek Ramaswamy and six people who will definitely not get the Republican presidential nomination. Like, why is Asa Hutchinson even doing this? Or, who exactly thinks Chris Christie is going to win anything? And . . . Doug Freaking Burgum? DeSantis […]

A Widespread Mental Disorder

Look at that headline. Notice something strange? I call your attention to the phrase “Fetterman Supporters.” Who are these people? And while we’re at it — “Undecided Voters,” really? After watching that idiot (who was already an idiot, even before suffering a debilitating neurological trauma) babble incoherently on national TV, who could possibly still be […]

Trump Won the Debate, But …

BERRIEN COUNTY, Michigan “C’mon” — Joe Biden used that seven different times during Thursday night’s debate, sometimes as “c’mon man,” other times as “c’mon, folks.” It’s a tic, a mannerism, a habit, and you could see Biden get rattled after he made the mistake of bringing up Rudy Giuliani, which opened the door for President […]

Debate Night Open Thread

BERRIEN COUNTY, Michigan Tonight is the second and final presidential debate, which I’ll be watching in the hotel lobby here. During our drive across northern Ohio and Indiana to arrive here this evening, we saw dozens of Trump signs and only one Biden sign. A quick preview of the debate: The stakes couldn’t be higher […]

Pence Trounces Harris in VP Debate; Commission Wants ‘Virtual’ Debate Next?

  The highlight in Wednesday’s debate, of course, was when a fly landed on Vice President Mike Pence’s head. I had turned the sound down low on my office TV, because I was working on an American Spectator column on a different topic, but I’d occasionally check the Twitter reactions and glance over at the […]

Biden and the ‘White Supremacy’ Smear

  There is exactly zero evidence that Kyle Rittenhouse is a “white supremacist,” but the absence of evidence did not prevent the Joe Biden campaign from smearing the teenager who defended himself against an Antifa mob during the Kenosha riots. Kyle Rittenhouse’s lawyer Lin Wood is not happy about this: After last night’s debate, the […]

Biden: Incompetent AND Incontinent?

  Guess which candidate needs an extra potty break? On Tuesday morning the Trump campaign requested a new rule for the first presidential debate: that a third party inspect both candidates for electronic devices or transmitters. President Trump had already consented to such an inspection, and the Biden campaign had reportedly agreed to this days […]
