Trump Really IS the GOP

Why are so many people acting as if Trump is something new from the GOP? It’s almost as if the media is bending over backward to insinuate that Trump is some sort of anomaly. They are trying really hard to … Continue reading

No, She’s NOT “Too Big to Indict.” Grow Up.

For months, I have said that Hillary Clinton would not be indicted for her emails and after the professional left’s collective orgasm over the past 24 hours, I wish I had explained why I knew that before. Despite the pro … Continue reading

The Progressive Solution

Okay… So for the last week, I have been ranting about the PUBs (Progressive Unicorn Brigade) and professional left, and their rank stupidity with regard to politics. They don’t understand how politics actually works, they don’t understand that you don’t … Continue reading

Tilting At the “Third Way” Windmill

This rant is long overdue. Sorry in advance, but it’s time someone said it… I’m tired of ideological purists on the far left side of the aisle telling me and many other actual liberals that we’re not really “progressive” because … Continue reading

GOP Right Boobs of the Week: Trump the Hump Edition

By @surinrockville and Milt Shook Another week, another column in which we are forced to ask the important question, “Where the hell do we start?” Well, as is usual these days, we start with Trump. He is, after all, the leader … Continue reading
