Larry Sabato’s Final Electoral Vote Prediction: Hillary 322, Trump 216. Dems Win Senate

Why do the news outlets continue to put people like Larry Sabato on TV as if his predictions were grounded in bedrock? I believe Larry Sabato should have his crystal ball checked for cataracts, something I am very familiar with. But even I saw the Trump Train rolling. Bad boy, Larry. Our Final 2016 Picks […]

I Love Trump’s Picks: Reince Priebus Chief of Staff and Stephen Bannon as Strategist

I am no fan of Reince Priebus. And I believe that during the Republican Primary he was not always fair to Donald Trump. Trump received extra scrutiny on singing the pledge that he would support the nominee. Not so much because Priebus gave a rip, but because the rest of the candidates feared a Trump […]

TEMPER YOUR EXCITEMENT WITH A DOSE OF POLITICAL REALITY

Not having got much sleep last night, allow for some misspelling and or typo’s as I bang away on the keyboard in a coffee reduced stupor. The “ chance” that President –Elect Trump represents is just that, a chance to reshuffle the deck, starting with a quiet and diplomatic removal of Paul Ryan and Mitch […]

President Elect Trump, I Like the Sound of that!

I got on the Trump Train early on. I wasn’t alone, but often felt the isolation from my friends who were supporting someone else in the Primary. And I believed that not only could Donald Trump win the primary, but he could also defeat Hillary Clinton. If I had a dollar for every Republican that […]

Dirty Job’s Mike Rowe, Voting, and the Work Ethic

Photo by USFWS/Southeast I recently saw Mike Rowe (Dirty Jobs) on Fox and Friends in a brief segment regarding, I believe, a Facebook post he made on the current election insofar as voting. Though (I hope my memory is correct) he did not offer support for either of the two front-running candidates. He was contacted […]

Republicans Are Losers; Ever Wonder Why?

Photo by JBrazito Republicans cannot understand why they lose. The reason is, they are not republicans. And they keep returning to disingenuous types like the Bushes or the Cheneys or the Gringrichs or the Jaffas-revised-history-theory-types ad neocon ad nauseam for their candidates to boot. They suffered themselves 30 years ago to the hoisting of Ronald […]

Another Bonus Boondoggle, Another Bonus March?

In 1932 veterans gathered in Washington in protest over bonuses owed (but not yet due) earned as a result of service in WWI. The bonuses were actually to come due in 1945, but due to the Great Depression (caused by the government) most of these men were out of work and strained to the limits […]

Investor’s Business Daily Poll (IBD) Radically Alters Tracking Poll After FBI Reopens Clinton Email Case

Investor’s Business Daily bills themselves as the most accurate pollster in the past elections. And this story backs up their claim. And I like tracking polls that “weight” their data to make it more realistic and diminish the error due to over or under sampling various demographics. And this IBD poll is weighted. Which is […]

New ABC Poll, while biased towards Clinton, Shows Huge Movement Towards Trump

On Trump: Women are much smarter than the media thinks

Each of us have unique gifts that most people hone over their lifetimes. Intellect is something that can be acquired, so even for folks who might start out with a lower IQ they can acquire deeper knowledge & understanding by simply exerting some time and energy to learn. That said, it is clear that their […]

Crybaby Republicans – Do Your Job or Resign

“Instead, my moral indignation – and that of the vast majority of conservative Americans – is saved for and directed towards the results of actions, not words.” Although I don’t recommend it, one advantage of growing up on the wrong side of the moral tracks, and not coming to faith until the middle of your […]

Reuters/Ipsos Poll 10-12-2016  (Click to enlarge)

Reuters/Ipsos Poll Samples 47% Democrats, 31% Republicans. +16% Skew Towards Dems

It may be time to question the polls that Real Clear Politics include in their averages. Some of these polls are completely unrealistic in my opinion. the latest poll by Reuters/IPSOS is a perfect example. The outfit released a poll today (10/12/2016) showing Hillary Clinton with a 7 point lead over Donald Trump. Theit last […]

A Little Perspective Might Help

We learned yesterday that Donald Trump isn’t who you would want your daughter to bring to dinner with a quiet declaration “  Daddy, I think he’s the one”.

Lester “Candy” Holt Moderates a Completely Useless Debate. Nobody Won. America Lost.

I had a feeling when Lester “Candy” Holt, who was every bit as partisan and self injecting as Candy Crowley was 4 years ago, began by talking about 6 years of unprecedented job growth under Obama and Secretary Clinton that Trump was about to be ambushed. And I was right. But did this completely tilted […]

RNC Chairman Reince Priebus Scares a Trump Endorsement Out of Ted Cruz

I was never a Ted Cruz fan. Nor was I a supporter. But as a Republican, I would have voted for him over Hillary Clinton. And I would not have trashed him if Cruz were the nominee. And I will tell you this, all of the hatred and vitriol that the anti Trump and #NeverTrump […]

“Necessities of Conservative Action” Premise Needs to be Challenged

Social Conservative Politics is dead in the Virginia Republican Party : Let’s Kill the Convention, too

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
