2020 shaping up — as 2016!

Bernie Sanders has had a heart attack. If this is anything more than the sort of blip on a heart scan that doctors notice two months later, there is little question that his presidential campaign is done. In fact, under these circumstances, I think it would say a lot about his immoderate lust for power if he even considered staying in the race...

Final Thoughts on A Former Great Republic

By way of yet another addendum to my recent musings about the bipartisan nature of America’s rapid disintegration, I see today that the owner and editor of Alt-Right Poop (formerly Right Scoop) is getting that Trumpy tingle up his leg again, this time over straightforward evidence of the angry mob character of Trump’s supporters, as though this were a wonderful thing.

Democratic Debate: Bobbing for Communists

As usual, I will preface the following comments about the latest Democratic presidential debate by saying, “Please!

This weekend’s triptych of themes: why progressives lie; the secret of Trump’s success; why the left needs racism.

Elizabeth Warren Solves America’s Race Problem Forever

  Elizabeth Warren lied about her ethnic heritage throughout her academic career, repeatedly and obviously seeking personal and professional (and later political) advantage by claiming to be Native American — or as Harvard Law School boasted of her, its “first woman of color.” Now, in perhaps the greatest fit of accidental genius in the history of idiocy, Warren has tried to verify her...
