Will you be Hillary’s next superpredator?

We know now that the theory of the superpredator is utter bullshit. In the 90s the idea was pushed by John DiIulio, a professor at Princeton who fear-mongered that by 2010, there would be “an estimated 270,000 more young predators on the streets.” This, of course, never happened. His predictive failure was nonetheless a coup […]

Sometimes it’s what you know for sure that just ain’t so

“….And the nomination is going to Rand Paul. You watch, this is what I do for a living.” Chris Matthews, Hardball, 2013 The pundits who enlighten and amuse political junkies like myself can’t be faulted for predictions are wildly off-base from time to time. If it’s your job to discuss politics 24-7, there will be boners such as […]

Bernie Sanders won’t be nominated and Hillary Clinton is fatally flawed – what next for Dems?

Bernie Sanders resounding New Hampshire Primary victory coming just eight days after the Senator’s insurgent campaign finished in a virtual dead-heat with the anointed-one Secretary Hillary Clinton has the progressive wing of the party feeling giddy this morning. But ultimately the Democratic Party’s nominating process isn’t a straight vote – we learned that in 2008 […]

Iowa Takeaways – Highly dangerous Rubio the biggest winner, Clinton a clear loser

Marco Rubio’s performance in Iowa proved that the GOP’s anointed savior is now essentially the national front-runner if you continue to believe Donald Trump will fade. By closing strong in Iowa despite spending less time in the state than several candidates that finished below him, Rubio clearly established himself as one of the front-runners for […]

What if Bernie loses Iowa? (hint…not much)

Polling and results in early races are fun to watch, but they predict very little. While it’s interesting that no candidate has lost the nomination after winning both Iowa and New Hampshire, that doesn’t mean it’s scientifically proven that winning Iowa and New Hampshire ensures a party nomination. Correlation is not causation. It will signal […]

The conservative media has adopted Bernie Sanders. What it might mean.

One quick glance at the homepage of The Sunshine State News would indicate Bernie Sanders is now a heroine on the right.  One hour of watching FOX News would indicate the same, though they always use the word “Socialist” to describe him, even in reports by supposed objective reporters in the field. The conservative media, […]

A History of Cynicism in Recent Democratic Presidential Races

  Mark Twain supposedly said, “history doesn’t repeat but it does rhyme.”  Yet history, in the Democratic primary between former Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, and Senator Bernie Sanders, appears to be repeating. Democrats are well known for circular firing squads and eating their own.  However, this enthusiasm often abates during general elections against actual […]
