Virginia, Brace Yourselves

We’re now less than a week away from Election Day, with the Virginia gubernatorial race too close to call, and I want all my Virginia readers to prepare themselves psychologically for the nightmare ordeal of these final few days. The agonizing wait, constantly checking to see what new poll has been published, or what TV […]

Why Terry McAuliffe Is Losing

Wednesday night, longtime Democrat strategist James Carville appeared on MSNBC to declare himself “scared to death” that Republican Glenn Youngkin could defeat Terry McAuliffe in Virginia: “It’s close,” Carville said. “Cook has it [as] a toss-up. If Cook has the race toss up — and Terry, by the way, has been blunt that we are […]

McAuliffe Campaign Implosion Continues

Do candidates who are winning act like this? Virginia Gubernatorial candidate Terry McCauliffe (D) reportedly ended an interview at the half-way mark and berated the reporter for not asking “better questions.” According to ABC7, the network had reporter Nick Minock conduct two interviews with the opposing candidates for governor – one with former governor Terry […]

Democrats Desperate in Virginia

You can tell by the TV ads that are running in the D.C. metro market that the Terry McAuliffe campaign is in deep trouble.

CNN’s ‘Hero’ Voter Is a Felon

On “Super Tuesday” last year, CNN celebrated a Houston voter, Hervis Rogers, who stood in line for hours to vote in the Democratic primary: “I figured like it was my duty to vote. I wanted to get my vote in to voice my opinion. And I wasn’t going to let nothing stop me. So I […]

Why Do Democrats Want a 9/11-Style Capitol Riot ‘Truth Commission’?

They can’t quit him. Democrats and the media (but I repeat myself) are unable to let go of their “Orange Man Bad” obsession with Donald Trump. That’s why, as I watched MSNBC this morning (so you don’t have to), they were headlining the New York state attorney general’s criminal investigation of Trump’s business organization. In […]

You Can’t Say ‘Rigged’

One of the things you learn, if you spend as many years in the news business as I have, is that the news is not random. That is to say, the question of what stories will appear on the front page of the New York Times is not merely a matter of what happened the […]
