I get the impression he hasn’t read my other posts on the subject, but I figure I’ll give it another go: I’ve come to realize that Obama’s and Trump’s political successes are two sides of the same inability-of-political-experts-to-see-the-obvious coin. The cognitive dissonance required to not see the similarities between how roundly Obama spanked our political “expert” […]

 Rick Wilson just made a couple of astute observations: Trump and Obama share many of the same flaws Trump supporters loath these flaws in Obama but ignore the same flaws in Trump. Here is a taste from Rick’s post, which is entitled, You Hate It From Barack Obama. But You Love It From Donald Trump. […]

Though I can’t seem to find a transcript, if you can stomach the 2011 broadcast of Howard Stern’s interview with Megyn Kelly, Howard asks her a serious question about whether Roger Ailes applied a “conservative litmus test” when he hired her. I thought her answer and subsequent “I’m conservative on some things and not on […]

Donald Trump is not exactly the kind of person you would think would connect with the Millennial Generation, unless perhaps you go by the theory that he is the type that tends to be most popular among those who haven’t seen his act before. And yet, if you’ve been paying attention to conservative political social […]

Reports have emerged that Donald Trump has given the “you’re fired” treatment to his ally and adviser Roger Stone. However, Stone said that he was the one who called it quits with Trump, saying that his constant feuding is distracting from the core issues. Trump told The Washington Post‘s Robert Costa that Stone would dispute […]

Now, Ms. Roderick herself is the target of some flak for standing up for Trump. Apparently, she should’ve been more outraged. Personally, I think we all should be free to feel how we feel — rather than adopt faux outrage because someone else tells us to. While I may or may not have reacted differently […]

Nothing like a fellow Canadian to spot the salmon plank in the eye of the Republic. He’s, like, totally Pooping On the Party: Sean and I analyzed the meaning of Trump’s non-pledge in negotiating terms: when the party establishment is treating you like dog feces on their shoe, why roll over and play the house-trained […]

From the August 4th Washington Post Why did I miss Trump’s appeal so badly? Simply put: I had NEVER EVER seen a reversal in how people perceive a candidate who is as well known as Trump — much less a reversal in such a short period of time. I based my conclusion that Trump would […]

People, people, people.  Over on the Member Feed, there’s a fairly mild swipe at Trump via the Washington Post that slyly hints Trump may be playing footsie with the Clinton camp. I’m only a basement dwelling pyjama blogger but even I have enough sense to check the dates on the phone calls and then through […]

As a class clown, I was offended by the careless remarks Rob made in the latest Ricochet Podcast when he included Trump as one of our kind. A class clown plays an important role for his fellow students by livening up an otherwise dull experience.  He does so by pointing out his teacher’s sweaty armpits.  He […]

Walker got a rather large helping of both the first and second choices in Ricochet’s recent 2016 presidential poll.  Carly Fiorina snagged a surprising second place. She is followed by Cruz, then Perry, then Rubio, then Jindal (if one counts second-choice points) and then Trump (followed very closely by Paul). Yet, Mr. Trump seems to […]
