Why Big GOP Hates Donald Trump

by baldilocks People love to be lied to and smooth-talked. Conversely, they hate frank speakers who tell them the truth.

Will House Democrats “Kavanaugh” themselves?

Yesterday I wrote this about the Democrats and the house: lot of crazies managed to win in deep blue states meaning that the left will be dying to go full pussy hat while Pelosi tries to make sure her caucus doesn't have a Kavanaugh moment that so disgusts voters that those 30 districts she flipped go … Continue reading Will House Democrats “Kavanaugh” themselves?

Beset But Not Bowed
