#FeelTheBern ? Check again.


Sanders seen in his usual pose: singling the wait staff for the check.

Since the Republican Primary has descended into a literal dick measuring competition, I thought today was as good a time as any to take a microcosm-ish look at the battle on the Democratic side for the nomination of President to these United States. Read the rest of this entry

Cruz Christmas Classics collapses my colon

Republicans are Master Debaters (Round 5)


See what I did there?

CNN brought the thirteen (yes, there is still an unwieldy baker’s dozen) Republican Presidential Candidates to Las Vegas last night for the fifth debate in an effort to give Chris Christie an up close view at profitable casinos. Here’s what went down. Read the rest of this entry

Anybody But Jeb! ep 2 review or CNN’s Republican Presidential Debate


Each candidate’s lectern will inject a mild yet pleasurable stimulant directly into their bloodstream each time they say “Reagan.”

Last time on Anybody But Jeb!, we saw Donald Trump cement his standing as the Randle McMurphy of the stage while Scott Walker’s performance pushed his numbers from “legitimate candidate” to “one of several people we’re just waiting to drop out.”  Did episode 2 change anything for these candidates?  And did Jeb do well enough to get his numbers to start swinging toward the two front-runners?  Keep in mind that the series finale episode of Anybody But Mitt! was called, “Meh, Let’s Just Go With Mitt.”  Read the rest of this entry

The Republican Party’s Southern Strategy or How the GOP Spent 50 Years Paving the Way for Donald Trump


The Mount Rushmore of the Southern Strategy.

Waaaaaaaaaaaaaay back when, it was the Democrats who were all White Supremacy and “Down with Lincoln!” and so on.  (President Lincoln was a Republican if you’re keeping score at home.)  After World War II, southern Democrats said, “That’s enough of that” and began supporting civil rights.  Well, except sweethearts like George Wallace (LEFT IN ABOVE PHOTO – he’s the guy that famously tried to block school segregation as seen in Forrest Gump, the only history lesson most people ever paid attention to) who went on to run for President as an independent in 1968.  And this, my friend, is when the stage began to be set for Donald Trump’s rise in the polls.  Read the rest of this entry

1 Reason the Republicans are in trouble (GOP Debate)


If you watched the Fox News/Facebook GOP Presidential Debate, you heard more of the same:  the GOP believes that the Federal Government has no place in determining the public school curriculum but does want to regulate women’s reproductive health issues. That sort of thing.  Then there’s the Donald Trump/Megyn Kelly stuff… not surprising.  (Clearly, FOX had an agenda in the debate and boy did Trump take the bait!)  But none of this stuff is surprising.  Neither is the Facebook question above – but it is a big problem for the GOP.  I shall explain!  Read the rest of this entry

We Accidently Went to a Bernie Sanders Rally

Official Response to Donald Trump’s Presidential Run


I really thought Donald Trump was just wandering around (pre announcement) to make sure we hadn’t forgotten about him in an effort to drum up promotion for the next season of The Apprentice, but no – he’s actually trying to win the Republican nomination for president. Read the rest of this entry

Today’s review of Primary Colors is a special guest blog written by Contemporary Teenager.  Enjoy!  ~jamie

So hi.  Uhm, I watched this movie on the TV in the living room (instead of on my phone like a normal person) with my stupid parents and it was called Primary Colors and I think it was supposed to be educational or something.  Read the rest of this entry
