The idiocracy has its first love triangle

Welcome to the idiocracy's first political love triangle. A low-information presidential candidate propped up by a low-information media, all in the hopes of rallying a low-information electorate to overthrow the Republican Party. Published April 19, 2016

The trans craze is cray-cray

Further evidence we are a superpower in decline. AARP-eligible rock stars, who refuse to grow up and act their age, think daring to uphold the constitution as well as the privacy, security, and dignity of restrooms somehow makes you America's Taliban. Published April 12, 2016

2016: If we can't get this one right, we deserve to lose

We believe in utterly silly things these days. But the truth is Bernie Sanders is not a real-life Santa Claus, he's just a communist. Donald Trump is not a heavy weight champion of the people, he's just another elitist jerk. And Hillary Clinton isn't always being framed, she's just a criminal. Published March 8, 2016

Finally! Some valid reasons to vote for Donald Trump

I've been requesting valid reasons why anyone who sincerely cares about the Constitution, or claims to be a conservative, can still be supporting Donald Trump's reality show ... err ... presidential campaign now that we have a clearer picture of his New York values. And knock me over with a feather if Trump Cult hasn't risen to the occasion once more. Blasting off with a litany of (nonsensical) explanations for why they're committing what amounts to political self-immolation. Published February 25, 2016

Yes, Ted Cruz can win the GOP nomination

When a man's logic rests on the decorum and magnanimity of Donald Trump, you probably want to stop following his trail of bread crumbs before total and complete madness sets in. Published February 4, 2016

Ted Cruz -- ethanol's best friend

Those who live and die by corporatism and taxpayer-funded subsidies have determined to go all-in to stop Sen. Ted Cruz, Texas Republican, from winning the Iowa Caucuses in a few weeks. Apparently Mr. Cruz believes too much in freedom and limited government for these people's tastes. It won't work, because these people have lost almost all their political clout for various reasons. Not the least of which is most people are tired of the corporatist gravy train. Published January 5, 2016

Ben Carson throws pro-lifers under the bus

Ben Carson's presidential campaign has been notable for the public's view of him as perhaps the most honest human being in a very large field. How disappointing then that Mr. Carson recently said one of the most intellectually dishonest things any presidential candidate has uttered on the road to the White House. Published December 1, 2015
