Since 1980, when Iowa held its first seriously competitive GOP caucuses, the first-place finisher has gone on to win the party’s nomination less than half the time.
This Thanksgiving, take some time away from the warm hearth of fellowship and family time, and join me as we wallow in the mire of right-wing mendacity, ignorance, and fear. There’s plenty of room.
Is Paris making voters think more about the commander in chief part of the job of president?If so, Donald Trump, Ted Cruz and Hillary Clinton are up.
Perhaps most pointedly, two different surveys show a majority of Americans opposed to taking in refugees, making the issue very lucrative for Republicans.
Seth Meyers recalled Ted Cruz on the show months ago, reminiscing that his father came to the United States after being a Molotov cocktail-throwing Cuban revolutionary.
In an ugly abdication of American values and leadership, more than half the state governors declared their intentions to block any Syrian refugees from settling within their respective states. Not only does this go against everything we stand for as America—it plays right into the hands of our enemies.
President Obama ripped into Republicans on the Syrian refugee issue Wednesday, making very specific and pointed charges against presidential candidates, all but calling them out by name.
More than half our country wants to ban Syrian refugees, though some states are willing to take Christian ones. Why? Because Christians are more like us than Muslims, even though we are supposed to be a nation where all religions are treated equally.

The Texas hardliner’s mischievous branding of Rubio as a “moderate” is the first shot in a showdown that may unfold in the coming days of the campaign.
It’s stunning to think about: Who would’ve ever thought that there just wasn’t a popular groundswell to elect the brother of the worst president in the last 100 years?
Will Republicans get away with their demands for upcoming debates? Early signs look promising for the GOP, less promising for journalism.
The current Republican presidential race is less a political contest than a reality TV series: a stage-managed melodrama with a cast of characters selected to titillate and provoke.
Clinton could be benefitting from successes at the Democratic debate and the arguably even more crucial 11-hour congressional hearing on Benghazi.
If you’re still looking for a scary Halloween costume, consider dressing up as a climate change doubter, an anti-vaccine advocate, or an elected official who hunts demons on the side.
In a dominating performance, Rubio, the U.S. senator from Florida, swatted away Jeb Bush when the former Florida governor attacked his attendance record in the Senate.
