National GOP attacks Hillary Clinton using a giant squirrel

This is almost as bizarre as Brett Hulsey’s chicken suit…

Forget about political attack dogs. The Republican National Committee has a giant squirrel.

As former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton criss-crosses the country to promote her new memoir “Hard Choices,” the RNC is deploying a person in a massive, orange squirrel costume to attend the [...]

Hillary the progressive? Not so much.

As a followup to earlier post questioning whether Hillary Clinton is really a progressive, I thought this would be worth a read,

And yet it is on economic policy—not on foreign policy, on Benghazi, her broader record as secretary of state or even her now-ancient votes as the senator from New York—that she is most [...]

Hillary Clinton vs. Russ Feingold

Over at The Atlantic, Conor Friedersdorf wrote an excellent piece contrasting presumptive 2016 Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton and former U.S. Senator (and staunch progressive) Russ Feingold.

Brian Schweitzer: Hillary Clinton is no populist

Apparently former Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer isn’t ready for a Hillary Clinton coronation in 2016, according to comments he made in a recent Time magazine interview.

Asked to share his thoughts on the presumption that Hillary Clinton is the heir apparent to President Barack Obama, Schweitzer was blunt in his assessment of Clinton. You can’t [...]

Hillary Clinton in 2016? Meh.

“Hillary will be a great president.” – Markos Moulitsas of

Perhaps Hillary Clinton is Markos’ cup of tea, but I’d love to see a more progressive Democratic presidential candidate, because the last thing I want is another centrist Democrat in the White House.

Is Elizabeth Warren Hillary Clinton’s worst nightmare for 2016?

This is worth a read. It’s hard to look at the Democratic Party these days and not feel as if all the energy is behind Warren. Before she was even elected, her fund-raising e-mails would net the party more cash than any Democrat’s besides Obama or Hillary Clinton. According to the Times, Warren’s recent speech [...]

2013 Elections and Beyond

On Tuesday night, Chris Christie won a second term as New Jersey Governor by about 20 points over his Democratic challenger, just as most pundits predicted. Many attribute this blow-out victory to the fact that he is perceived as a moderate Republican who can get things done. The fact of the matter is that Christie [...]

Reince Priebus threatens to take his toys and go home like a petulant child

Reince Priebus reminds me of a crybaby… The chairman of the Republican National Committee threatened on Monday to refuse to partner with CNN or NBC on any presidential primary debates if the two networks move ahead with plans for television projects on Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Reince Priebus, the chairman, said in letters to the [...]

On the supposed Benghazi “coverup”

Yeah, not so much… The cover-up story relies on the premise that Obama administration officials pushed the idea of spontaneity in order to obscure the fact that they had missed warnings of planned terrorist attack. It’s plausible that someone was pushing that story for parochial reasons in these email exchanges. Perhaps the CIA put that [...]

The sexist spin on Hillary Clinton’s Senate testimony

I know I’m a couple of days behind on this, but Aviva Shen of ThinkProgress has a great post up highlighting the sexist coverage of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s testimony during a Senate committee hearing on the Benghazi terror attacks last week,

In fact, here’s the Thursday morning cover of the New York Post, [...]
