Sickness in Wisconsin

Posted by  ▪  December 5, 2011

It’s hard to be shocked at anything anti-Scott Walker protesters do anymore given Wisconsin’s Long Strange Trip. So as much as I want to be shocked at anti-Walker protesters greeting the Governor with a Nazi salute at a Christmas Tree

Posted by  ▪  December 5, 2011

Posted by  ▪  December 4, 2011

There are multiple reports that Herman Cain will endorse Newt tomorrow, based on reporting by Fox 5 in Atlanta.  This would not be a huge surprise, as Cain and Newt had a very good relationship, as witnessed by their joint

Herman Cain did not just fall, he was pushed

Posted by  ▪  December 4, 2011

I’ve done this before, more than once.  But now that Herman Cain is out of the race, this may be the last time (probably not, but we can hope): As of today, 5 weeks after Politico broke the story, we still do

Post-Cain Stuff

Posted by  ▪  December 4, 2011

In the wake of Herman Cain’s suspension of his campaign, lots of movement: Michele Bachmann claims to be picking up Cain supporters.  Just stop it.  Just stop it.  This is the same thing you pulled over the summer about Palin

Final Exams

Posted by  ▪  December 4, 2011

Huckabee Candidates Forum

Posted by  ▪  December 3, 2011
