Ann Coulter says it well, here:

Well, it looks like it’s the end of the road for Hillary. Time for her to pack up her pantsuits and go back to – wherever it is she’s pretending to be living these days. Now we just have to get rid of the other two. Perhaps if I endorse Obama

This week, Bill Clinton lost his second presidential election for a protege.

Ronald Reagan was so popular, he not only won a 49-state landslide re-election for himself, but he also won a symbolic third term


Stupid is… Easy!

It is so easy, especially when you aren’t tightly scripted, to say things that just don’t come out the way you mean them to.

  • John McCain: When asked what will happen if he can’t convince the American public that the war in Iraq is succeeding, he said “Then I lose.” I don’t have a problem with this answer, because it’s true. John’s mistake here, in my opinion, is attempting to retract the statement. It’s one thing to say something that pundits will have fun with, it’s another to react so dramatically so as to give the pundits not just credence on the point, but additional fire power.
  • Hillary Clinton: “Shame on you!” Very tepid and unnatural? Bring back Bill, at least he knows

You heard Barack Obama say


The Aftermath, and the Wuss

It’s been a busy day in politics…

John Edwards has apparently been paying attention to our suggestions. He has decided to drop out of the race leaving no endorsement (yet).  Any bets on who that helps?

Rudy Giuliani also has departed, providing an endorsement to John McCain. Nice.  Most people seem to agree that McCain is not as conservative as Romney, just like the Easter Bunny isn’t as real as Santa Claus (most people can at least say they’ve had a conversation with Santa, not with the Bunny).  Hucklebee is apparently the only one waiting for an official invitation to leave (Ron Paul hasn’t spent all his money yet, so we may be stuck with him longer than Nader).

Speaking of Ralph Nader, it …
