Some thoughts on last night’s results: [Read more…]
So, we are a little over twenty four hours away from the Iowa caucuses, and it would appear that Donald Trump is set to win in my former home state; the Real Clear Politics average of polls shows Trump ahead, and shows that he has held a consistent lead. I suppose this means more cause for me to despair. It may well be that Trump will not be the Republican nominee, but for now, he is doing an excellent job of muddling any appealing Republican general election message, and helping set up the GOP to lose what should be a winnable contest against Hillary Clinton in the fall.

Or so we are regularly told by the president of the United States, his political allies, and fans of Obamacare in general. [Read more…]
The putative next president of the United States has been trying recently to seem more approachable, more warm, more friendly, more of a kind-of-person-you-and-I-would-want-to-have-a-beer-with kind of politician. Presumably, achieving all of this would cause the rest of us to want to give her the keys to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
But when one looks beyond the charm offensive, one continues to find little charm, and much that is offensive. [Read more…]
If we are going, to have ourselves a serious debate regarding guns and gun policy, it would behoove us to get the facts right.

And who am I to disagree with my hardworking staff? [Read more…]
