STEVE DEACE: 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.

STEVE DEACE: 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.

STEVE DEACE: 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.
