    [caption id="attachment_240669" align="aligncenter" width="620"][/caption] It's time to stop assuming that the Trump phenomenon will collapse under its own weight. Trump has held a continuous lead in the RCP polling average since July 20th. That's already…

  • Rick Perry campaign on terminal trajectory

    Fri 10:30am By <a href="/users/streiff/">streiff</a> (<a href="/diary/streiff/">Diary</a>)
    In what looks to be a metaphor for his campaign, Rick Perry got plenty of attention yesterday but it was only because Donald Trump was trolling him, and in the end it was a verbal gaffe by Perry that got more attention than his substantive response. Via The…

  • Hillary Clinton, Ashley Madison and the Strange Beauty of Karma

    Fri 7:00am By <a href="/users/repair_man_jack/">Repair_Man_Jack</a> (<a href="/diary/repair_man_jack/">Diary</a>)
    Hacktivism isn’t my favorite activity. I understand why people like Edward Snowden or Julian Assange do what they do. I even concede that they sometimes have a point. However, it often comes at a terrible negative externality cost. It happens because people…
  • A Nation of Laws No More

    Thu 11:20pm By <a href="/users/erick/">Erick Erickson</a> (<a href="/diary/erick/">Diary</a>)

  • The Establishment can’t even criticize Trump correctly

    Thu 8:00pm By <a href="/users/neil_stevens/">Neil Stevens</a> (<a href="/diary/neil_stevens/">Diary</a>)
    My distaste for Trump is well documented at this point, but when I read this evening about Hugh Hewitt's interview of Donald Trump, I was struck by how terrible Hewitt's whole line of questioning is. Hewitt – who gave Harriet Miers a "solid B+" and thought…

    Thu 2:00pm By <a href="/users/streiff/">streiff</a> (<a href="/diary/streiff/">Diary</a>)
    Well, not in so many words but the effect is the same. One of the components of the Iran nuclear deal is that it gives Iran unconstrained access to well over $100 billion in cash. Another component of the deal is that even though Iran is on the State…
