Raging Moderate by Will Durst A massive Earthquake rolled through the Republican Establishment after Eric Cantor became the 1st sitting House Majority Leader to lose in a primary since, well… ever.

Usually state parties nominate candidates at conventions, activists adopt a pre-approved platform and everyone goes home happy. What happened in Fort Worth was a combination of a demolition derby and an inauguration. Rick Perry may have kicked off the weekend with a well-regarded speech, but there was a new king when delegates left town. Ted […]

Making Sense by Michael ReaganHillary, you go girl.Run as hard as you can for president.Play hardball to get your party’s nomination.Do whatever dirty party tricks it takes to knock off what’s-her-name up in Massachusetts, or what’s-his-name out in Montana. Compared to you, they’re a pair of minor league batboys — two lefty Democrats who can’t […]

Independent’s Eye by Joe Gandelman Many Americans probably yawned when they saw the news that Spain’s King Juan Carlos decided to abdicate the throne in favor of his son, Prince Felipe. But they should have been in awe of the King’s name. He’s a historical figure who displayed guts despite personal danger in helping modern-day […]

On Monday morning, Hillary Clinton began the much-anticipated start of her next presidential campaign – or as she likes to pretend, rollout of her new book: “Hard Choices.”  In an interview with ABC’s Diane Sawyer, Hillary mentioned that she and her husband Bill were “dead broke” upon leaving the White House after her husband served […]
