The timing couldn't have been scripted more symbolically. As Donald Trump was coronated in Cleveland, Roger Ailes, Emperor of Fox News, was getting ...
According to the New York Times, Donald Trump junior offered Governor John Kasich a chance to be the most powerful vice president in history, because Trump wants his VP to be in charge of both foreign and domestic policy.
While I realize that Donald Trump did not necessarily have a wide choice of high-level politicians willing to become his running mate and therefore Mike Pence may have been the least bad of all available options, his selection still strikes me as a bad move.
I turned on the campaign coverage early today just in time to catch the big floor fight among the delegates. Call it the final death throes of the "Never Trump" movement.
Today marks a one-year anniversary related to the most important issue in our state -- how we educate our kids. Some wish we would forget what happene...
Donald Trump has now officially selected Mike Pence for his running mate. This means it'll be a Trump/Pence ticket. Create your own humorous talking point around this matchup.
A strange political campaign has produced some equally strange dreams. The strangest by far have revolved around the real estate developer Donald Trump, the Republican party's presumptive nominee for President. These dreams reflect the intense emotional reactions, positive and negative, that Trump generates in a variety of people.
There is no surer sign that a writer has pundititis than to start picking vice presidential nominees. It's a God-given chance to be dead wrong in public -- twice.
When in the past have you ever heard the term "unendorse" used? We haven't checked, but we believe it just got coined and added to the political lexicon.
With all the mudslinging we've witnessed in this campaign, the contenders have gotten awfully dirty. Let's clean them up. I ask you, which candidate would you most like to shower with?
All right. Stop whatcha doin' cause I'm about to ruin the image and the style that ya used to. Remember the ridiculous old rap classic "The Humpty Da...
Paula took it upon herself -- unasked, entirely on her own initiative -- to begin conducting "man/woman on the street" interviews with strangers she interacted with in her daily life (she lives in Akron, in the bellwether state of Ohio), to see what they thought about the election season.
For several years now there has been a fight within the Republican Party, pitting establishment Republicans against movement conservatives.
The anti-Trump movement is a well funded, high energy, political machine(a single anti-Trump super pac raised over 16 million dollars) that now has no hope of stopping Trump until the general election.
This week the nation entered terra incognita, as Indiana GOP voters handed Donald Trump a big victory, giving us -- with Ted Cruz and John Kasich dropping out -- the most unqualified, unstable, and dangerous nominee in U.S. history. The events immediately provided a test for Republicans, some of whom rose to the occasion and refused to endorse Trump. Then there was Rick Perry, who once called Trump a "cancer." Now? He says he'd consider being his running mate: "I will be open to any way I can help. I'm not going to say no." What stirring statesmanship. But this is not just a test for the GOP. It's also a test for the media, who, as David Roberts writes, is likely to give a very unusual campaign the usual media treatment: "Trump's obvious unfitness for office -- today widely acknowledged across both parties and in the mainstream media -- will become a partisan observation." So, yes, as the media writes about how various Republicans are handling their character test, we need to remember we're facing one ourselves. The most important mistake the media could make now would be to treat this like a normal election, and Donald Trump like a normal candidate.
It's been a pretty momentous week in the history of American politics, folks. The Republican Party is going to nominate Donald Trump to run for the highest office in the land. Politics and entertainment are now one.
