The Other McCain

"One should either write ruthlessly what one believes to be the truth, or else shut up." — Arthur Koestler


UPDATE 11:10 p.m. ET: I’m calling it for Trump. He’s won Florida and Georgia. North Carolina is looking like a win. He’s leading in Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. Michigan — MICHIGAN! — Trump now leads by double-digits. We are in Red Wave territory, folks. * * * * * My partner John Hoge and I will […]

Election Eve Prediction Time

  Don’t know who created that meme, I just saw it on Twitter. Election Day is tomorrow, and the time for making predictions is running out. Also, I’m running past deadline on a 2,500-word piece for the print edition of The American Spectator, in which I evaluate the prospects of a post-election civil war. (Spoiler: […]

Good News: Democrats Are Worried

People keep telling me their predictions about the election, and I don’t want to hear them. I have done the Electoral College arithmetic and know that it is easily possible for President Trump to win, even if it’s going to be close and we might have to wait for late returns. More than that, however, […]

Whatever Your Problem Is, Electing Democrats Will Never Be the Solution

This is the only political principle you need to guide your election choices. Never vote for a Democrat, nor support any policy endorsed by Democrats. Insofar as it is possible, avoid residing in any community where Democrats are a majority, but if it happens that you find yourself living in a “blue state” (e.g., California) […]

A Democrat and a Liar

But I repeat myself: A Michigan bar owner featured in a Joe Biden campaign ad saying his business may fail because of President Donald Trump’s COVID-19 response is a wealthy tech investor who made it big after receiving a large family inheritance. Joe Malcoun, the co-owner of The Blind Pig, said in the ad his […]

Can Joe Biden Really Win This Way?

As campaign strategy, does this even make sense? Joe Biden is still refusing to discuss an exposé by the New York Post alleging the former vice president’s youngest son, Hunter, leveraged his ties to the Obama administration for the benefit of a Ukrainian natural gas conglomerate. The Democrat nominee, who has long struggled to explain […]

BREAKING: Steve Scully ‘Indefinitely Suspended’ by C-SPAN Over ‘Hacking’ Lie

  Not “breaking” in the sense that we are startled to discover that the former Biden staffer lied. Democrats lie habitually. It’s who they are. No, what’s “breaking” is that C-SPAN actually still cares about the truth, and Steve Scully is probably out of a job now. HUGE–> BREAKING: CSPAN Suspends Steve Scully Indefinitely for […]
