Are These Woman as Stupid as They Say?

I keep hearing the media say terrible things about women who live in suburbs and went to college. According to everyone from CNN to the Cook Political Report, these college-educated suburban women have no control over their emotions or their hormones. They self-sabotage and sabotage their families just to quell their own emotional urges. In other words, the media say college-educated suburban women are all hysterical. That’s a terrible, sexist thing for the CNN to say about these women.

Bad Judgment on Rockwood School Board (or something worse?)

Everyone remembers the horrible audit of the Rockwood School District. * $1.2 million wasted in double payments * Contracts awarded to a construction company that had one of its executives on the board * Feeble, "arrogant" response to the audit from board members * Bad management! But the worst example of cronyism and arrogance went largely unreported. (The great Elliott Davis caught it, though. Video to follow.) Read more →

A Candidate With Skin in the Game

**Ninety-eight percent of Americans** - plumbers, dentists, bus drivers - have skin in the game. We have to worry about the 2 percent - the intellectuals and politicians making the big decisions _**who don’t have skin in the game and are messing the whole thing up for everybody else.**_ Thirty years ago, the French National Assembly was composed of shop owners, farmers, doctors, veterinarians, and small-town lawyers—people involved in daily activities.

Yellow Josh “Hee” Hawley

We all thought it. “This time, for sure, McCaskill goes down.” We’ve thought it before and been disappointed. But this time is different, right? This time, we have that up-and-coming Attorney General who’s backed by conservatives and establishment Republicans alike. A guy equally at home at a Tea Party conference or a Jack Danforth backyard barbecue. This time, for sure. But this time looks like another disappointment for Missouri Republicans hoping to send another Republican to the US Senate. Read more →

Here’s what will happen in 2018 election (POLL)

Do you think Democrats will retake the House, the Senate, or both in the 2018 election? [socialpoll id=“2479812”] Now that you’ve answered, let’s consider the limits of data science in 2018. The best data scientists in the world agreed with nearly absolute certainty. These scientists determined, beyond a reasonable doubt, that Hillary Clinton would be the 45th President of the United States. That was in 2016. Those scientists were wrong. Read more →

2018 will change American culture at its core

If you’re wondering how things will change in 2018, you might think back the mid-1980s. In the 1980s, leftist professors, leftist news media, and leftist entertainers were angry. For years, they’d preached that Ronald Reagan was a neo-Nazi buffoon whose incompetence and malice would destroy America. Maybe even wipe out the human species. “I believe Ronald Reagan can turn America back into what it once was,” said comedian Steve Martin on Saturday Night Live in 1980, “a vast wasteland covered with ice.

UPDATE: Kid Rock Winning MI Senate Race

If the election were held today, Senator Kid Rock would be a thing. Via The Gateway Pundit: News broke this weekend that Kid Rock is LEADING challenger, Dem Debbie Stabenow in a new poll 30% to 26%! Everyone who wrote this off as a joke, then as a publicity stunt, then as impossible, then as improbable will be forced to say “Senator Rock” soon. Very soon.

Senator Rock: Who’s the Joke? (offensive) VIDEO

My serious Republican friends (think of people like Chris Wallace and Charles Krauthammer) worry. They worry about this trend toward “unserious” politicians getting elected. They worry about “what it says about voters” who elect Sarah Palin, Donald Trump, and (very soon) Kid Rock. These serious Republicans long for the days of serious men and serious matters. Of gray flannel suits beneath salt-and-pepper hair belonging to Yale grads and Harvard Law professors who can, on occasion, in the right circumstances, with just the right audience, shock the world with an (are you ready for this?
