    Countless News Organizations refer breathlessly to the Real Clear Politics "RCP Poll Average" as the go-to source for the big picture view of the candidates' standings. But did anyone take a look at that source and figure out how they come up with their numbers? With some trepidation, in fear of what I would find, I did. Here's today's RCP Average and the individual polls it summarizes: Poll Date Sample Trump Cruz Rubio Carson Bush Kasich Christie Fiorina Spread RCP Average 1/22 - 2/4 -- 29.5 21 17.8 7.8 4.3 4 2.5 2.5 Trump +8.5 QuinnipiacQuinnipiac 2/2 - 2/4 507...
  • Coulter: The case against Cruz as ‘natural-born citizen’

    If Ted Cruz is a “natural-born citizen,” eligible to be president, what was all the fuss about Obama being born in Kenya? No one disputed that Obama’s mother was a U.S. citizen.Cruz was born in Canada to an American citizen mother and an alien father. If he’s eligible to be president, then so was Obama — even if he’d been born in Kenya.As with most constitutional arguments, whether or not Cruz is a “natural-born citizen” under the Constitution apparently comes down to whether you support Cruz for president. (Or, for liberals, whether you think U.S. citizenship is a worthless thing...

    Bristol Palin and fianc Dakota Meyer are calling off their wedding, which was set to take place this weekend. Former GOP vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin announced the cancellation of her daughters nuptials in a Monday Facebook post, writing the couple has informed loved ones that unfortunately the announced celebration planned for May 23 will not be held. Palin wrote that, although it wont be a walk down the aisle, a shindig of some sort will still go on: Many friends and family still look forward to getting together that day in Kentucky anyway and the Palins and Meyers...

    Ted Cruz defended his lack of executive experience this weekend saying that he is not a community organizer. The Texas senator explained that unlike Barack Obama, who also ran for president after one term in the Senate, he had accomplished more before becoming a legislator. Cruz pointed to his period as solicitor general of Texasan answer that was itself a display of the debating talents his supporters say qualify him to be president. Cruz wasnt answering the question as much as redefining the criteria. A lack of executive experience cannot be overcome by simply not having the attributes of the...

    Sarah Palin is an outspoken proponent of gun owners rights, but are her gun-friendly grandchildren at risk? After Bristol Palins fianc, Dakota Meyer, and her baby daddy, Levi Johnston, both came under fire for posting photos of children with guns, spoke with the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence. A spokesperson warned the families that this is a teachable moment and they have a responsibility not to promote an attitude of recklessness.(Five-photo-slide-show)

    This is the most hilarious interview with Ted Cruz Ive seen thus far. Thank you CNN, for delivering this epic bit of blowback: [IVDEO] Please, somebody, help me, I cant stop laughing. Bash tried to smack Cruz around by comparing him to Obama (funny, she didnt have a problem with the current president having no executive or much political experience when he ran for the White House in 2008), hoping it would silence and embarrass the senator from Texas. She got a healthy dose of youve got to be kidding me instead. Two years in the Senate, not much experience...

    At this stage, 84-year-old U.S. Rep. Charlie Rangel, D-N.Y., understands that he can pretty much get away with saying or doing anything. If the lawmaker cheated on his taxes with little consequence, what harm can possibly come from comparing the tea party to the terrorist group Hamas. Which is precisely what Rangel did in an interview taped on Thursday, as he discussed the three Israeli teenagers recently kidnapped. We know that these victims, these kids are being held by people that have no moral standards the question is how do we handle these types of people who dont mind dying,...
  • Rove: Palin Endorsement Not Worth Snot For Gingrich

    Buzzfeed ^ | 3-7-12 | Miller
    Karl Rove mockingly dismissed the value of Sarah and Todd Palin's endorsements on a private conference call today, noting that their backing of Newt Gingrich in Alaska "demonstrated that endorsements dont mean snot." BuzzFeed obtained the dial-in information for the conference call with Barclays Capital clients and employees, in which Rove outlined the state of the Republican race for the presidency and the path forward for the candidates. Its no secret that Rove, who orchestrated President George W. Bushs presidential wins, is no fan of the Palins, and has repeatedly sparred over with the former Alaska Governor since she entered...

    Footage of Masyaf shows missile shaped items; IAEA urges Syria to let inspectors visit reactor that IAF destroyed in 2007. A compound in western Syria with buildings and hundreds of missile-shaped items has been identified as functionally related to a nuclear reactor Israel destroyed northeast of Damascus in 2007. Satellite footage of the site in Masyaf was obtained by the Washington-based Institute for Science and International Security and shows a compound built in a ravine and surrounded by what appears to be a line of trenches. While there are no security measures visible in the commercial satellite imagery, ISIS said...

    It's no secret that [Nicolle] Wallace is no fan of Sarah Palin. But the former Bush communications director and McCain campaign aide perhaps took things to another level with her attack on Palin on today's Morning Joe. Wallace was on to comment on Joe Scarborough's astonishing claim of yesterday, noted here, that "all" conservatives and talk radio hosts with whom he's spoken are harshly critical of Palin off the record, but are afraid to express their views publicly. Wallace opined that if it ever looked as if Palin were close to copping the Republican presidential nomination, many GOP leaders who...

    C. Edmund Wright, at American Thinker, has an interesting article today about the mental illness which has afflicted liberals and establishment Republicans: Palin Derangement Syndrome, or PDS as it's referred to in the relevant academic literature. PDS, of course, is a relatively new psychosis having first been observed approximately 15 months ago. Those most susceptible to this virulent strain of mental illness are self-anointed elite liberals who, curiously, have a notable dearth of accomplishments in life. Examples include Keith Olbermann, Chris Mathews, and the ratings challenged Katie Couric, to name a few. But, as we've noted here before, PDS is...

    The Australian ^ | 11-22-2008 | From correspondents in Lima
    PROTESTERS have demanded that US President George W Bush get out of Peru where he is attending an Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit, blaming him for the world economic crisis. "Bush out," about 1000 demonstrators chanted in the centre of the capital Lima, watched by scores of police in riot gear who made sure they did not move towards the APEC summit venue several kilometres away. "This crisis didn't come from the Peruvian people. We shouldn't have to pay for it," a union leader told the crowd, which demonstrated peacefully. Mr Bush, one of 21 leaders of Asia-Pacific economies converging...

    Bush Derangement Syndrome (BDS) - From Wikipedia: The term "Bush Derangement Syndrome" is usually applied as a derogatory term within the Blogosphere to imply that an opponent cannot be reasoned with or that complaints lack substance aside from anti-Bush hatred, due to the illogical connection to the charge.It can only be a derogatory term, because the people suffering from this condition are bathed in hatred and incapable of rational thought. Case in Point: Last night, October 17, 2006, Takoma Park, MD campus of Montgomery College. I arrived at the campus in the early evening to attend a seminar related to...

    A United Airlines flight from Eugene to Denver was diverted to Salt Lake City on Wednesday after a University of Oregon graduate student with no criminal record got into a physical fight with another passenger and lunged toward the cockpit, an FBI spokesman said. Bogdana Atanasova Georgieva, 35, a resident of Bulgaria now living in Eugene, tried to run from airport police after Flight 6664 landed at the Salt Lake City airport. "She made a reference about a bomb being on the plane," Special Agent Patrick Kiernan said from the FBI's Salt Lake City bureau. Airport police searched the plane...

Since the Bush terror, alas, theyve been condemned under a little-known provision of the Patriot Act to confinement in Crawford, Texas for one whole month a year. Crawford is where George W. Bush has his ranch and, other than that distinction, it is (as I wrote here in August 2000) a dusty crossroads in the middle of a drought-stricken, sun-broiled plain,...
