Democrat Concedes in CA-25 Special Election: Not Close Enough to Steal

  Even the amazing ability of California Democrats to manufacture votes through “ballot harvesting” were not enough to elect Christy Smith in Tuesday’s special election to fill the seat vacated by naked bisexual Katie Hill‘s resignation. Republican Mike Garcia won CA-25 by a 12% margin, 56-44, an advantage of more than 18,000 votes, and Smith […]

Clown Car Campaign Nears Its Sad End

  Early last year, Lawrence Person dubbed the Democratic presidential campaign a “clown car,” and by summer 2019, there were so many candidates it was difficult for the DNC to narrow the TV debate field down to 20. Does anyone remember anything Tim Ryan, John Hickenlooper or John Delaney said during their brief sojourns on […]

Sanders Wins California, Biden Wins Texas, Brokered Convention Looms

  As of 8 a.m., Maine remains “too close to call” — Joe Biden leads by about 2,200 votes with 83% of precincts reporting — but what matters more is the delegate count, and it will take another day or two before we have a complete total from Super Tuesday. Biden won 9 of 15 […]

SUPER TUESDAY: Joe Biden Sweeps the South, Bernie Sanders Wins VT, CO, UT

UPDATE 11:45 p.m. ET: OK, so far in California — about 15% of precincts reporting — it’s Sanders at 27%, Bloomberg 20%, Biden 18%, Buttigieg 12% and Warren 11%. You might say, “But I thought Buttigieg dropped out?” Yes, but early voting (an idea I’ve always opposed) means that many thousands of ballots were already […]

AOC: Girl-Crush of the Bernie Bros

  New York Post columnist Miranda Devine argues that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez “was [Bernie] Sanders’ secret weapon in Nevada, wooing the crucial Latino voters who propelled him to victory, and injecting much-needed ethnic, gender and age diversity into his campaign. Without her, he’s just another grouchy old lefty howling into the wind.” Having a young Latina […]

Has Joe Biden Finished Losing Yet?

  Michael Bloomberg hired enough write-in votes to win Dixville Notch, N.H., but the total of reported early votes from New Hampshire actually favor Amy Klobuchar, for whatever that’s worth. The one thing everybody knew before any votes were cast was who the big loser will be: Joe Biden could finish as low as fifth […]

Wednesday: Have Democrats Finished Stealing Iowa From Bernie Sanders Yet?

  Keep in mind that Bernie Sanders’ campaign had people in every precinct caucus in Iowa whose job was to get the voting numbers, so that when the state party HQ bungled the count Monday, the Sanders campaign was able to release its own tally, showing that Bernie had won. According to their numbers, Bernie […]

Disaster in Iowa: The Democratic Party Is Decadent and Depraved

  Last night’s dumpster fire in Iowa, caused by “technical difficulties,” kept me awake past midnight waiting for a result that never came, and I got up this morning and finally filed the story: The way Democrats run their Iowa caucuses is difficult to explain briefly, but the result Monday was clear. Within an hour […]
