You can’t understand the 2016 GOP primary without ‘Why the Right Went Wrong’

You can’t understand the 2016 GOP primary without ‘Why the Right Went Wrong’

How something so right had to go so wrong The last time Republicans won a presidential election it was 2004. George W. Bush prevailed by trumpeting his ability to keep us safe, despite the 9/11 attacks and the failing wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, while his domestic agenda revolved around supporting “traditional marriage” and immigration reform. Deep in his campaign […]

Trump campaign hires former Koch brothers shill to run Michigan campaign

Trump campaign hires former Koch brothers shill to run Michigan campaign

WHAT?! A corporatist presidential candidate hired a corporate shill to run his campaign?! Get oudda here! You can file this one in the “Well That Figures” file. Donald Trump, who had raised a tidy sum of just over $11,000 through the end of September in Michigan, doesn’t have any sort of ground game in Michigan at this point so, given […]

The Trump Effect: Empowering the previously voiceless bigots of America like Kentucky clerk Kim Davis.

The Trump Effect: Empowering the previously voiceless bigots of America like Kentucky clerk Kim Davis.

It’s easy for Democrats to hope that Donald Trump wins the Republican nomination because it’s easy to believe he can’t win. For those of us who watched in horror as George W. Bush won (twice), we know otherwise. For those who watched the Michigan state legislature be completely taken over by tea party religious zealots, we know otherwise. Trump, who […]

New Chrome browser extension replaces “political correctness” with more accurate term on all webpages

New Chrome browser extension replaces “political correctness” with more accurate term on all webpages

One of the things that (a) sets progressives’ teeth on edge and (b) quickens the heartbeats of ignorant racists, bigots, misogynists, and sexists is the idea that “political correctness” is censorship. It is, of course, nothing of the sort. It’s actually an expression of our fundamental right to call someone out on their racism, bigotry, misogyny, and sexism. You’re free […]

GUEST POST: Jimmy Carter and Donald Trump – Some Thoughts

The following guest post is from my dear friend Wally Welch. In it, he compares and contrasts former President Jimmy Carter (a personal hero of mine who is battling brain cancer) and Donald Trump (not a hero of mine who is battling xenophobia, racism, and sexism.)

Donald Trump to Detroit autoworkers: you make too much money

Donald Trump’s “Let Detroit go bankrupt” moment? Donald Trump has something to say to Detroit autoworkers: you make too much money. Talking about U.S. vehicle manufacturers moving production to Mexico in an interview with The Detroit News, Trump said this: He said U.S. automakers could shift production away from Michigan to communities where autoworkers would make less. “You can go […]

This is what happens to your poll numbers in the GOP primary when you insult immigrants

This is what happens to your poll numbers in the GOP primary when you insult immigrants

See that red line? That’s Donald Trump. His argle-babble about immigrants (who commit crimes at a lower rate than any ethnic group) has led to him being dumped by Univision, NBC, Macy’s and now Serta. Trump’s reputation is now so bad that businesses want nothing to do with him and Republicans do. It’s important to not read too much into […]

David Trott’s millionaire donors include GOP class clown Donald Trump

David Trott’s millionaire donors include GOP class clown Donald Trump

If you want to position yourself as an alternative to Tea Party zealot Rep. Kerry Bentivolio, maybe associating with Donald Trump isn’t the best idea. We’re judged by the company we keep, and Republican Congressional candidate David Trott is making his allegiances known. The latest report from the Federal Election Commission (FEC) shows plenty of contributions to Trott for Congress, […]

Fifth face of Mt. Rushmore

Stoneface McGee tonight at the White House correspondence dinner where Barack Obama and Seth Meyers ran him over and then backed up a few times: Donald Trump wants to run the country and he can’t even take a joke at his own expense at a celebrity roast???! Whatevs, dude. So. Not. Worthy. (Or. Qualified.) I’m just sayin’…

It’s not that Sarah Palin is a birther…

It’s not that Sarah Palin is a birther, not that she’d admit in public anyway. It’s that she thinks President Obama is a liar. And she’s cheering on The Donald from the sidelines for resurrecting questions about the mythical Obama birth certificate. I think that he was born in Hawaii because there was the birth announcement put in the newspaper. […]
