ALL the pardons! Thursday, Trump announced via Twitter that he will be issuing a full pardon to Dinesh D'Souza.

If you're running for Senate in Texas, coastal celebrity support ain't gonna do jack to get you over the finish line. Nevertheless, Sarah Jessica Parker is the latest celebrity to publicly show support for Rep. Beto O'Rourke, the Democratic candidate running against incumbent Sen. Ted Cruz.

Last week, I blogged about a poll published by Quinnipiac University. The poll showed the upcoming Texas Senate election as too close to call. Sen. Ted Cruz has a formidable opponent in Rep. Beto O'Rourke, but no one in Texas believes the poll is close to reality. That's not to say that running as a favored incumbent in a deep red state should be taken for granted though. We discussed that issue and more here.

Ted Cruz's Democrat opponent Rep. Robert O'Rourke just put a serious damper on his bid for a seat in the Big House (not that there was any serious competition before). Speaking at South by Southwest in Austin, O'Rourke said he doesn't think AR-15s should be sold to private citizens. Mind you, this is a TEXAS Senate race and us Texans have big love for our guns and our second amendment protections.

Today is a rough day to be a Texas Democrat. That blue wave we've heard about for months was more of a ripple. Months of wish casting, hoping, dreaming, pretending a blue wave was cresting in the Lone Star State, only to be clobbered by Republicans in voter turnout. Piece after piece was written about record Democrat turnout in early voting. The predictions had Texas Republicans rattled and Governor Abbott encouraging Republicans to get to the polls.

Just when you thought CNN might make it through a week without disgracing itself, anchor Chris Cuomo accuses Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) of being "afraid" to talk to CNN about the Florida shooting and GOP measures to prevent such shootings.  The problem?  Cruz had given CNN a 15-minute interview the day before, and CNN decided not to air all of it. The Washington Free Beacon reports:
Republican Sen. Ted Cruz (Texas) admonished CNN's Chris Cuomo on Twitter after the anchor accused him of being afraid to appear on CNN in the wake of the Parkland, Fla. school shooting.

What can you say about soon-to-be-former governor of New Jersey Chris Christie?  At one time, it seemed his star was rising, that he was destined for the White House.  That is the historical moment to which Christie apparently clings. Christie, who leaves office—and almost certainly any political future—on January 16th, believes that if President Trump had not run in 2016, he'd be president today.

Donald Trump Jr. celebrates his 40th birthday in two weeks. To kick off the birthday festivities, several friends held an early birthday party for Don Jr. at a Dallas restaurant. Texas Sen. Ted Cruz attended the party. Because it's funny, someone brought a cookie cake with the likeness of President Obama from his iconic "Hope" poster iced on the front. The two posed for a picture with the giant cookie, Don Jr. posted it to Instagram, and then the internet lost its mind, hurling Racist™ accusations and the like.

Democrat Dog Jones pulled off an upset in Alabama's special Senate election, barely beating embattled Republican Roy Moore. High on the Alabama win, Democrats are experiencing delusions of grandeur, believing bamamentum will carry over to the Lone Star State.

This was like a trip down memory lane. Let me begin by saying the debate style of Bernie Sanders hasn't changed since the 2016 Democratic primary. I lost track of how many times he said millionaires, billionaires and Koch brothers in the first 30 minutes.
