President Obama, Alan Grayson, Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton walk into a bar fight

It’s a battle for the soul of the Democratic Party — are you ready to rumble?! Scott Arceneaux needs to brush up on his platitudes, because clearly, to “disagree without being disagreeable” doesn’t mean what he thinks it means. In a statement circulated to political media, Florida Democratic Party Executive Director Arceneaux said he was […]

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.

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 […]

The real threat to abortion in Florida isn’t an all-out ban

HB 865, the all-out ban on abortion attracted national media attention this week, but this bill won’t end abortion in Florida. It’s a distraction. Instead, what’s more likely to end abortion services in Florida this session are so-called TRAP bills that threaten to close any number of the 65 abortion clinics in Florida, 16 of which […]
