Elizabeth Warren Video - Lashes out at reporters over Native American Controversy

Elizabeth Warren’s autobiography is out, and it looks like she is sticking precisely to her campaign script on her false claim to be Cherokee. The title is “A Fighting Chance.”

The Boston Globe, which has an advance copy (perhaps as a courtesy since it gave Warren so much help in the...

His contract with the network has been canceled, as is standard practice for candidates for office.

In early October, 2013, Legal Insurrection broke the story of a claim by Martha Robertson, the Emily’s List-backed Democratic challenger in NY-23, that GOP operatives were caught trying to take down her website during a crucial fundraising period last fall.

The District is a key priority for both parties, and money is...

Alternative title: Is Hillary sick in the head?

FWIW, I’ve notice Hillary lately having a vacant, sickly appearance. Not enough to have done a post about it, but I noticed.

Alex Pappas at The Daily Caller writes that others have noticed, too.

Not Elizabeth Warren. 

Warren could defeat Hillary, but it would be a slugfest because there is no way Warren could insulate herself from attacks by the Clinton machine and media sycophants.

There’s only one person who would have what it takes to make the media tingle, and who would be insulated from...

Wendy Davis has inspired some Texas-sized hype after her pro-late term abortion filibuster.

That hype has hit the rocks of a busted personal narrative, a bizarre media strategy, and a “deja victim” attitude.

But some true believers still believe.

Like the author of this column, Hillary Clinton and Wendy Davis could be the 2016...

Wendy Davis holding shotgun on stage

When Elizabeth Warren’s fake Cherokee status broke in late April 2012, Warren’s campaign went into panic for several days, issuing statements about Warren’s ancestry that proved troublesome when compared to the facts. The entire issue was portrayed as a Scott Brown campaign dirty trick, and the Boston Herald — the city’s...

Amber Davis and Wendy Davis Daughter Texas Tribune Video

Wendy Davis’ core political narrative was one of overcoming victimhood — an abandoned single teenage mom  who struggled to raise her family in a trailer park and overcame the odds to work her way through college and Harvard Law School, and on to a successful law career, through grit and determination.

Only problem was, the...

Much like insurance, Hillary Clinton isn’t bought, she’s sold.

And it’s always been a hard sale.

She has name recognition, and is the default candidate for a significant percentage of the electorate, but there’s always been something missing. It’s why Obama could appear out of nowhere to take her down, and it’s why...

Naomi Schaefer Riley writing in The NY Post has a brutal assessment of why Wendy Davis has no future in politics.

It’s a brutal assessment that I think is right, and one that will drive Davis’ most ardent supporters crazy because it cannot be wordsmithed or talking-pointed.

The problem gets to the deepest...

Ever since the story broke that Wendy Davis — to be charitable to her — had embellished her personal narrative, many commenters and people on Twitter with whom I interact have suggested Elizabeth Warren as an analogy.

As readers know, I have been a harsh critic of Elizabeth Warren for claiming Native...
