How the Terrain Shifts in New Hampshire

New Hampshire doesn’t usually reward winners of Iowa, and if you look at the terrain there you can see why (I went over this with the invaluable Henry Olsen the other day, so I am in his debt, but all mistakes are mine).  In Iowa, Cruz won handily among evangelicals 33 to 21 for Trump and 21 for Rubio in Iowa.

Worst Economic Proposal Ever?

It Would Be Foolish for Britain to Remain in the EU

If only one could wake up one morning and find that the European Union had been nothing but a bad dream! As it is, we shall wake up quite soon and be obliged to come to terms with its destructive power.

Loony Rooney Rule to Be Expanded

The National Football League will now require at least one woman to be interviewed for all executive openings — an expansion of the “Rooney Rule,” which requires at least one racial minority to be interviewed when filling any head coaching vacancy.  But the Rooney Rule is illegal, as I explain here, and of course so is expanding it.

These are all legitimate avenues of attack, but the implication that Rubio has been coddled is ridiculous. Show More Summary

The Return of the 'Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy' Excuse

You would think, after going out and repeatedly lying to the American people and insisting that all of the allegations against her husband were the work of a “vast right-wing conspiracy,” Hillary Clinton would retire the conspiracy theory. Show More Summary

Trump 25, Cruz 21, Rubio 21

We live in a poll-obsessed time. We have a Republican presidential candidate who has vested more in his standing in the polls than any candidate in the history of the Republic, and a media that seemingly takes its every cue from the polls, with a particular emphasis on the national polls.
