WikiLeaks Derp: Not Just For Leftier-Than-Thous Anymore!

Always. Be. Insulting. The. Intelligence. Of. Your. Followers. At a time when Donald Trump and his supporters are trying everything imaginable to undermine the credibility of public-opinion polls showing his candidacy sinking slowly into the pages of American history, they will clearly pick up any rock they can and hurl it at the hated messengers […]

The Filibuster For Supreme Court Nominees Will Not Survive a Democratic Senate

I believe the man is correct, and he would know: Outgoing Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) said he is confident that he has laid the groundwork for Democrats to nuke the filibuster for Supreme Court nominees if they win back the Senate in November. Envisioning Hillary Clinton in the White House and Democrats controlling […]

Is Evan Bayh “Collapsing?”

Despite what looks like a pending Electoral College landslide, the Senate is looking very close. So if Bayh is indeed collapsing, this is a serious problem. As of now, I don’t really see any evidence of a “collapse” as opposed to a “decline” — the RCP average has him up by four points, 538’s polls-only […]

Today in the Party of Calhoun

Seems about right: Holy cow. The state of Kansas has a lawyer citing Dred Scott in support of its position. In defense of a law aimed at limiting a woman’s right to choose. What in the fck is the matter with Kansas? Dred Freaking Scott! I am not a lawyer, nor am I a legal […]

The man who invented the 60s

RIP Tom Hayden. Thomas Emmet Hayden was born in Royal Oak, Mich., on Dec. 11, 1939, the only child of John Hayden, an accountant, and the former Genevieve Garity, both Irish Catholics. His parents divorced, and Tom was raised by his mother, a film librarian. He attended a parish school. The pastor was the Rev. […]

Curt Schilling Finds Powerful Media Platform To Launch Sure-to-be-Successful Senate Run

This seems over-over-overdetermined: With it looking increasingly unlikely Donald Trump will be heading to the White House, the prospect that he will partner with his campaign CEO, Breitbart executive chair Steve Bannon, to launch a Trump TV network seems more and more probable. In the meantime, the right-wing website is staffing up with potential on-air […]

Priebus on the 2012 GOPost-mortem: we’ll get to it

For some reason that I can’t quite put my finger on, people keep mentioning the RNC’s Growth & Opportunity Project Report. For example, a reporter put it in the lede of a front page Boston Globe article that commenterion efgoldman shared this morning. The Republican Party commissioned an autopsy on the 2012 presidential election, trying […]

Erik Visits an American Grave, Part 54

This is the future grave of Nicolas Cage. You are saying, what, Nicolas Cage is still alive. Indeed, or so it seems. But he isn’t messing around. Let me just link here. Cage has a history with the city of New Orleans, having purchased both the infamously haunted LaLaurie Mansion and the historic Our Lady […]

NFL Open Thread

I guess we should get this up early for the Giants fans out there? The England games so far have entailed “basing an international marketing effort on mediocre teams facing bad ones.” The fact that the league seems to see trivial taunting fouls as more serious offenses than deliberate attempts to injure is Roger Goodell […]


A funny thing happened at a Tangerine Nightmare rally in N.C. When you protest a Trump rally but no one realizes your shirt says “Latinas AGAINST trump” so they take pics w/ you like you’re supporters — CC (@cecicardelle) October 21, 2016 The NYDN has more. Share

Presidential Campaigning Involves Politics

via GIPHY So the latest appallingly stupid NothingBurger to come out of the Wikileaks dump appears courtesy of Lee Fang: Here’s a Wikileaks email showing some of the liberal bloggers huddling w/the Hillary campaign to push Bernie hits...Show More Summary

Candidate Fukov Andeye wins by a landslide

Roger Stone is very concerned about election theft. In certain areas. Occupied by certain kinds of voters. Donald Trump loyalists will attempt to conduct their own crowd-funded exit polling on election day, ostensibly due to fears that electronic voting machines in certain areas may have been “rigged”, the Guardian has learned. But the effort, led […]

The orange peel in the Tar Heel state [Now with Down in Gettysburg update]

Based on headlines alone, it might appear that Trump swapped the right wing’s Oooo, First Lady Obama did lay a sick burn upon Clinton Plymouth Rock he was abusing for a First Lady Obama is a hypocrite for campaigning for Clinton after said sick burn Orphington. But if you listen to the crowd’s response during […]

Dear kindly judge your honor, this campaign’s been so rough

With reporters all reportin’ whenever I say stuff! Donald Trump targeted federal Judge Gonzalo P. Curiel in an an extended series of bigoted rants this summer, asserting that Curiel couldn’t rule fairly in cases alleging fraud by Trump University because of the judge’s Mexican heritage. “I’m building a wall,” Trump explained at one point to […]

America’s Particularly Overpaid and Underachieving Elites Denounce Democracy as Elitist

America’s Liberal News Newtwork (TM), everybody! MARK HALPERIN: I’m fascinated by a parallel universe in which [Donald] Trump hadn’t said what he said about respecting the results because he had a lot of good moments. I think he got more of his message out than he ever has. He had the demeanor that a lot […]

But Roger Goodell Always Made Money For His Partners

Willfully inept investigations and ludicrously arbitrary punishments, the Roger Goodell story: There is no way of knowing if the NFL got this divorce file; I can only tell you that it is a public record, and was fairly simple to get. I got a copy; the NFL knew the Browns were going through a divorce; […]

Go Fund Yourself, John C. Wright

  Oh man, is this a sad I’m hazzing? Or is it just my sides aching from laughing so hard? Oh, it must be the latter, because it appears that John C. Wright has fallen on hard times. This is a shame because no one can veer manically between florid, overwrought, unreadable prose and seething, […]

Pennsylvania Professor Strike, Day 3: Where is Tom Wolf?

APSCUF is still on strike against the PASSHE schools in Pennsylvania, protesting the lack of a fair contract offer. “While the two sides made significant progress in the talks that began Oct. 14, including reaching tentative agreements...Show More Summary

Can Clinton & Ryan get along? Let’s ask Newt Gingrich!

But first, it’s important to establish who will be to blame if they don’t. The relationship would hinge on how Clinton decides to begin her presidency. She could claim an electoral mandate and launch a pitched battle to pass the more progressive parts of her agenda. Or she could start with a relatively incremental push […]

Would A Republican Senate Confirm Hillary Clinton’s Supreme Court Nominee?

Don’t bet on it: What McCain said on Monday is almost certainly an honest account of what Republicans plan to do — that is, create a constitutional crisis should Hillary Clinton win the presidency and the GOP retain control of the Senate. The Supreme Court could be stuck with eight members for years, unable to […]
