Donald Trump

Kavanaugh had a point. What goes around may well come around.

Kavanaugh had a point. What goes around may well come around.
The Senate has voted. Brett Kavanaugh has been narrowly confirmed. In a normal time, that would be the end of the story, or at least this chapter of the story. These, as you probably know, are not normal times.

Why is Coal Suddenly Becoming a Major Talking Point in the Presidential Election?

Why is Coal Suddenly Becoming a Major Talking Point in the Presidential Election?
It simply wouldn’t be an election year in the United States without the fictitious “war on coal” talking point rearing its ugly head. But something is different this year. In years past, the “war on coal” was admittedly fake, but today we really do have presidential candidates who have expressed interest in making the industry a thing of the past, and those quotes are being used as a catalyst to rally voters in coal-dependent states like West Virginia and Kentucky.

Littwin: Winners, Losers and Coin Tossers in the Iowa Caucus

Littwin: Winners, Losers and Coin Tossers in the Iowa Caucus
The voters have finally spoken, and, in a surprise, at least to the pollsters, it turns out they had a lot to say. First, they handed the Donald his first-in-the-nation loss, and to Ted Cruz at that. Trump gave a brief, humbled, un-Trump-like concession speech which made you wonder, now that his winners-win tour is over, if we shouldn’t have seen this coming.

Another Prick in the Wall; Littwin on Trump’s Immigration Bomb

Another Prick in the Wall; Littwin on Trump’s Immigration Bomb
OK, I admit it it, I’m a silver-lining kind of guy. And so when I read Donald Trump’s round-up-the-illegals-and-ship-‘em-out manifesto – a point-by-point policy paper to follow up on his illegal-immigrants-as-rapists commentary — I knew we were finally getting somewhere.

Littwin: Who Knows How to Deal with Trump?

Littwin: Who Knows How to Deal with Trump?
Let’s all agree on this much after the opening night of the GOP debates: Donald Trump, the star of the show, did not disappoint. He was at his Donaldian best, or worst, depending on your world view. The thing about Trump is that his best and worst are exactly the same, so it’s hard to know the difference. He was appalling and he was entertaining, and he proved, if anyone doubted it, that he had no business standing on the stage among serious candidates, which is the whole point of the Trump experience.

Young Trumps Campaign Message: Rock Against Republicans

Young Trumps Campaign Message: Rock Against Republicans
Candidates of both political parties like to have rock music playing at their rallies for obvious reasons. Rock is the music of millions of Americans, it has energy, it evokes a certain forward-looking vision, it connects with young people, it is culturally inclusive, and it implies that the candidate is not part of the Establishment. In other words, rock is everything that Republicans are not. Still, they keep trying their own version of cultural appropriation by choosing rousing rock anthems to warm up the crowd, and once again, the musician who recorded that rock anthe

A Candid Karl Rove Riffs on the 2016 GOP Presidential Field

A Candid Karl Rove Riffs on the 2016 GOP Presidential Field
A brief transcript of Karl Rove's analysis of the current crop of GOP presidential candidates. It's probably safe to say that Karl Rove is not a fan of Donald Trump. It's also probably safe to say that if Donald Trump is the GOP's nominee Karl Rove will vote for him.
