Ban Bossy

Yeah, me too.

Donald Trump.

But I don’t think that’s what the Ban Bossy campaign is about.

The #BanBossy movement pretends to protect little girls from the humiliation of being called “bossy,” and thereby will empower a generation of strong, powerful female leaders (so long as you don’t call them bossy, because that would...

Ready for Hillary Logo

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...

I really enjoyed watching Meet The Press this morning.

It’s not that often that I watch live, usually restricting myself to watching clips.

I’m glad I watched. Rand Paul did a great job at many levels, particularly when Gregory brought up the Big Bubba in the room that no one wants to...

Expect former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates to quickly be turned from hero of the Democratic Party for being a Republican willing to work for Barack Obama, into just more trailer trash because of his tell-all book about that service which reinforces an accurate meme about Hillary Clinton: She has no...

Hillary Clinton What Difference Does It Make

The NY Times published a lengthy account of the Benghazi attack that is being hyped as exonerating the Obama administration (and of course, presidential candidate Hillary Clinton), but in fact the report does nothing of the sort.

The main thrust of the spin is that it was the video after all, a...

He’s our best, and maybe only, hope. 

At a minimum he will generate numerous quotables regarding his likely opponent, Hillary.  If by some miracle he’s the nominee, it will be a big f-ing deal when it comes to our chances of winning the White House.

That seems to be how this thing is going to develop.

Private citizen Hillary is just going about her private business, helping establish the pantsuit as cultural icon and just chilling. The rebranding thing is really hard work.

All the while, hapless fall-guy John Kerry travels the Globe trying to clean up the mess...
