GREAT POST ABOUT DEMOCRATIC PARTY POLITICS

Matt Osborne has written one of the very best short political pieces I've ever read:
On Our Inevitable Disappointment With Bernie Sanders

VICTOR DAVID HANSON IS WRONG AGAIN

This is part of what he wrote in the Washington Times:
the all-important labor force participation rate is at a historic low of just 62.7 percent.
The rate was lower than that from 1948-1978, as you can see here.

BOY GENIUS STATES THE OBVIOUS

Ezra Klein made this statement about The Donald:
Behind Trump's success is an unerring instinct for harnessing anger, resentment, and fear.
This makes Trump a run of the mill conservative, NOT someone "terrifying."

MORE MSM BULLSHIT

Just heard Rick Klein of ABC News state that BOTH parties have moved to the extremes so Bloomberg may have a decent shot.  It's clear that neither Dem is extreme so why is this "both sides do it" meme still alive?

FATS CHRISTIE CRUSHES LITTLE MARCO

I didn't think Christie could smack down someone who also has power but he did:
Christie began his critique of Rubio by saying that senators wake up thinking about what speech they will give that day or what kind of legislation they will sponsor. A governor, Christie said, wakes up thinking about “What kind of problem do I need to solve?”

Turning to Rubio, Christie addressed him directly. “You have not been involved in a consequential decision where you have had to be held accountable. You just simply haven’t,” Christie said.

MAYBE CONSERVATIVES GET AWAY WITH LYING...

because no one in the MSM points them out.  Canada Cruz repeated a couple of big lies about Obamacare to Chris Wallace and none of the Big News Outlets, such as the NYT or WaPo, covered it.

GLENDA BECK'S "NEW MEDIA" EMPIRE IS FAILING

Not enough visitors == not enough clicks  and that means not enough revenue.
Head of Glenn Beck’s Media Empire Quits as The Blaze Burns Down

LLOYD GROVE

...the departure in June of then-Blaze chief executive Betsy Morgan, an experienced digital media executive who previously ran CBS News’s digital operations, helped grow The Huffington Post, and built TheBlaze.com into a news and aggregation site that—in November 2014—attracted 29 million unique visitors per month.

But by November 2015—according to figures from the Web traffic measuring service Quantcast—monthly traffic for TheBlaze.com had dropped to 16.4 million unique visitors, and traffic for the associated website GlennBeck.com, had plunged from 4.4 million to 1.4 million uniques.

TED CRUZ, BLASPHEMY & THE FUNDIES

I read this disgusting remark on the AP's site:
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — The Latest on the 2016 race for president on the final weekend of campaigning before Monday's leadoff Iowa caucuses (all times local):
5 p.m.
Texas Sen. Ted Cruz is infusing his closing argument to Iowans with Biblical references as his campaign visits some of the state's conservative strongholds.
Cruz has made courting Iowa's evangelical Christians a cornerstone of his campaign and he has long tapped the Bible in his stump speech.
 
At a stop Saturday at Darrell's Place in Hamlin, Iowa, Cruz urged his supporters to "awaken the body of Christ that we may pull back from the abyss."
The line drew loud cheers from the western Iowa crowd.
