Dear CNN


I love you guys. I really do. I get attacked by my own side for regularly defending CNN. But I fell in love with you guys the moment I discovered you using an illegal scrambler to get AFRTS as a kid in Dubai. And then I’d go home to Louisiana during the summer and when my grandmother left the room, I’d turn off Young and the Restless to watch Frank Sesno, Bernard Shaw, Judy Woodruff...

The Blue Wave in Georgia Won’t Be Like the Spin


Democrats and the media are making great hay out of the Republican turnout being only 50,000 votes more than the Democratic turnout in Georgia’s primary elections. In 2014, it was a 300,000 vote gap in favor of the GOP. It is misleading to rely on that comparison. Georgia is still a tough place for Democrats to win statewide. In 2014, Republicans had a highly competitive Senate primary featuring...

More Awful Revelations & Eric Greitens’ Awfulness Could Keep the GOP From Holding the Senate


Eric Greitens is a sociopath who needs to be thrown out of office for his monstrous, criminal behavior. But some Republicans seem to want to stand by their man.
