As a huge fan of the very articulate and forceful Carly Fiorina, I’ve been wondering why she continues to score very low in the polls for the Republican nomination. Here’s my attempt at an answer.

I believe Carly Fiorina scores low not only because she lacks name recognition, but because she has...

When it comes to the 2016 Republican nomination, one man is currently sucking all the media oxygen out of the room.

Erick Erickson of RedState blames Donald Trump’s rise on a failure of leadership in the Republican Party. Matthew Continetti of the Washington Free Beacon has a similar take.

When it came to Donald Trump’s comments on violence from illegal immigrants, I argued that it was possible to differentiate between the man (Trump) and the issue. Whether or not you liked the man, he raised a legitimate issue.

Trump in an interview today made a comment about John McCain that is...

A reader, let’s just call him Johnny, writes:

Seen on I-287 in NJ at 12:30 PM today [Monday, July 13, 2015]. It would appear the Dems have lost the teamsters. This is NOT a Photoshop.

I was skeptical, so I wrote back:

You promise it’s not a photoshop?

He responded:

I took the photo with my Droid Turbo. If you think speaking to me personally will convince you, my cell is [xxx-xxx-xxxx]. Note that I was speeding!

Sometimes publicly threatening to “kick someone’s ass” elicits a nasty response.

Twitter seems to be Donald Trump’s favorite weapon of choice. In his latest social media tear, Trump targeted Mexican drug lord, ‘El Chapo.’

Is the media obsessed with Donald Trump, and thereby driving up his numbers? And not with good intentions?

CNN certainly has a fever, and the only prescription is more Trump.

How many times do you think they could mention his name in 24 hours? 50? 100?

Keep going.

Would you believe 239 times?

Donald Trump’s big presidential announcement mostly went over like a lead balloon here at Legal Insurrection. For me, it felt like just another announcement; in terms of political theatre it was huge, but in terms of substance…to be honest, I’m still distracted by all the theatre.
