Not this election cycle. Maybe not the next one. But it’s coming. In today’s America, a network of executive, judicial, bureaucratic, and social kinship channels bypasses the sovereignty of citizens. Our imperial regime, already in force, works on a simple principle: the president and the cronies who populate these channels may do whatever they like … More The Revolution is Coming, Friends.
So, I was at the gym this morning, and in between sets I tend to gaze up at the TV. The one closest to me always has MSNBC on, which is fine, as it’s good to absorb the framing of the other side (for the record, I’m a declared Gary Johnson supporter, but I’m not … More Birther Trump is Not a Birther
I don’t know if Glenn Beck is really talking about what he sounds like he’s talking about here.

We must of course concede that aesthetic statements … More No, Ed Rendell, a Majority of Women are Not Ugly
Good. He posted on Facebook that he said so, and reaped the whirlwind of idiot Facebook comments. He re-posts his post on the blog, with edits responding to each genre of protest, and it is a delight. A few delights: WHAAA! NO LABELS! You shouldn’t call people Trumpkins!” Forgive me No Labels Police. Writing out … More Larry Correia Won’t Vote Trump, Either.
Share and Enjoy. So the question becomes, what are Republicans to do with a Republican party that would allow a progressive populist boasting Mondale’s trade policy and McGovern foreign policy — that is, a leftist Democrat that looks for all the world like an angry and retouched Circus Peanut — to carry its flag? And … More Jeff Goldstein: Let the GOP Go the Way of the Whigs. Time for a New Party.
