The Plot Thickens

The Plot Thickens

As if the President’s first week in office weren’t interesting enough, he has decided to fire Attorney General Sally Yates, who had been the placeholder until Jeff Sessions is confirmed by the U.S. Senate.

Taste The Rainbow

Taste The Rainbow

Although overshadowed by your regularly scheduled terror attacks, as well as pre-debate effluvia, the media’s attempt to turn Donald Trump Jr.’s recent tweet into a cause célèbre for smug leftists is worth examining in detail.  While some right wing pundits pointed out the similarity between his Skittles metaphor and a feminist-inspired meme involving a different chewy...

Update: Harry Enten, of FiveThirtyEight, sums up the confusion on the Republican side of the aisle.  Interesting analysis of the Ohio vote by Tim Carney.

Live Free or Die

Live Free or Die

  Update: According to CNN projections Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders have emerged victorious from tonight’s primary. Notch one for the notoriously inaccurate polling industry!  We’ll see whether New Hampshire lives up to its state motto later tonight, although the pickings are rather slim in this regard. You can follow the undoubtedly dubious exit polling data...
