Fiorina’s Fumble

Fiorina’s Fumble

Carly Fiorina was the undisputed star of the “happy hour” Republican debate last Thursday. It gave her a boost, as well as some much-needed name recognition, prompting speculation and conservative hope about her inclusion in the next primetime debate. However, polling has not reflected this bump — at least, not[Read More…]

Too Conservative?

Too Conservative?

The Republican party seems more dysfunctional than usual as of late, from difficulty passing a bland transportation bill to the farcical polling lead of Donald Trump.  Nothing reveals the fissures within the party more clearly than the recent dissention of Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC), a very conservative party member who,[Read More…]

A Sanders Summer Sensation

A Sanders Summer Sensation

A few months back, it was a fiery senator from Massachusetts who drew the swelling crowds and impassioned devotees. Cries of, “run, Elizabeth, run!” bounced off of the walls of packed speech halls as Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) delivered statements annihilating the corrupt and wealthy while rooting for the downtrodden and[Read More…]

How Sweet The Sound

How Sweet The Sound

Barack Obama’s presidency has had no shortage of hard knocks. An obstinate and childish Congress, very public and embarrassing fumbles (especially of the foreign affairs variety), and a critical and unforgiving media have often left the president looking haggard, defeated and hopeless.

Donald Trump’s Political Peacocking

“I’m really rich.” “I give a lot of money away to charities and other things.” “I think I’m actually a nice person.” “I will be the greatest jobs president that God ever created.” These smug and self-important declarations bounced off the walls at Trump Tower as the (possibly paid?) audience[Read More…]

Eleven years ago, a young Senator from Illinois took the stage at the Democratic National Convention. “Tonight is a particular honor for me,” he began, “because let’s face it — my presence on this stage is pretty unlikely.” Thus, Barack Obama’s star was born.

Perpetuating a Cultural Standard

Perpetuating a Cultural Standard

The recent Rolling Stone article about sexual assault at the University of Virginia has sent the Internet into a raging tailspin. Again. Everyone is disgusted by the brutality, shocked at the nonchalance of the administration, disheartened by the victim’s friends’ responses. Again. The cyclical nature of the Internet’s upheaval with[Read More…]

The Democratic Downfall

The Democratic Downfall

Tuesday night brought a sound shellacking for Democrat candidates on all levels. Dismayed Democrats looked on as state after state turned deep red. Races that pundits predicted would be neck and neck became lopsided landslides for the Republican candidates. The Senatorial contests in Kentucky and Arkansas were called minutes after[Read More…]

RIGA: Armed With Anonymity, Gamers Attack Women

GamerGate, like many other Internet controversies of late, has become so bogged down with online trolling and anonymous hate as to be nearly impossible to delineate. As the threats escalate, any credible debate has become thoroughly buried beneath misogyny and sexual violence. The issue started when game designer Zoe Quinn[Read More…]
