Trump Stomps Haley in S.C.

There are a lot of sad faces on CNN tonight (I watch CNN so you don’t have to). All week long, they’ve been hyping up Nikki Haley’s chances in South Carolina and . . . Well, it ain’t happening. At this hour, Trump is winning by a margin of more than 20 points in Haley’s […]

How to Lose a Special Election

What is the first thing you notice about that picture? It shows last week’s televised debate for the special election in New York’s 3rd Congressional District — a seat vacated because fraudulent “Republican” Rep. George Santos was kicked out of Congress.

The late George Carlin used to say, you know how stupid the average guy is? Well, half the people are dumber than that. This crossed my mind because CNN — I watch CNN so you don’t have to — was hyping up this Quinnipiac University poll claiming that (a) Biden is leading Trump 50% to […]

It has never been my style to say or do anything merely to “own the libs,” as the kids say, but if owning the libs is what you want to do, then voting for Trump is certainly the best way to do it. Congratulations, then, to Iowa GOP caucus-goers, who provoked unprecedented conniptions in the […]

Despite Big Night for Virginia Democrats, “HotWifeExperience’ Loses Election

Susanna Gibson claimed to be the victim of “an illegal invasion of my privacy designed to humiliate me and my family” when it was discovered that the Democratic candidate for a Virginia House of Delegates seat had raised money by performing sex acts on livestream internet videos under the handle “HotWifeExperience.” Tuesday’s election was a […]
