A Leftist and Her Money Are Soon Parted

San Francisco leftists have once again decided to inflict another socialist utopia on an unsuspecting South American nation. What's more, just like at Jonestown, a popular liquid is playing a prominent role.

Ever since George W. Bush went home to paint puppies, Republicans have generally lauded him as a tough commander-in-chief who "kept us safe." But Donald Trump is torching that party mantra.

Turns Out New Hampshire is for Losers

Once again, New Hampshire has demonstrated it is as different from the rest of the country as the Himalayan Mountains are from Jack in the Box's seasoned curly fries. Like green sand and aluminum crockpots. As Dorothy almost said after being whisked away by a tornado, "We're not in Iowa anymore, Toto."

New Hampshire's Populist Primal Scream

What a wild night in New Hampshire! In the words of one political reporter, "The voters sent a powerful anti-Washington message." A xenophobic Republican demagogue "stoked citizen anger against the inside-the-Beltway establishment, loudly invoking the '30s populism of Huey Long." The triumphant candidate fed off the "anxieties" of his fans. He "speaks his mind and damns the consequences."

Hate-Watching the Election

"I love Bernie! I've donated to his campaign! He's great!" my super conservative Beltway establishment Republican friend says. "Feel the Bern!!"

Trump Tizzy in Virginia Long Before Primary

The Virginia Republican Party has discovered it's one thing to issue a political "Do Not Resuscitate" order, and quite another to get it to stick. Back in September, the State Central Committee decided to require all voters in their March 1st GOP primary to sign a pledge that states, "My signature below indicates that I am a Republican."

What About Bernie Sanders?

Many Democrats and others truly fed up with the state of the nation's economic and social core are unwilling to support Bernie Sanders because they're afraid he can't win. But they're trapped by circular thinking: he can't win because too many people fear that he can't win.
