The Campaign Spot

While We’re On the Topic of Things That Aren’t Funny…

Note to the guys at Heading Right: It is not funny to call Hugh Hewitt’s site and to call the good folks at the American Spectator’s blog Giuliani Central Hub. Not… (stifled chuckle) funny at all.

And it was also not…  (holding breath, tapping fingers)… funny when a strategist who’s not a fan of Mitt called another campaign correspondent who shall remain nameless “the Sixth Romney Son.”
I know, I know, it’s only a matter of time before I’m called a McCain tool or Fred stooge or Huck Mucker or some variation of those. Or, I guess, GeROMty or Jim Ger-Rudy….
Also, to the Ron Paul supporter who asked why I didn’t lay out his preferred candidate’s path to the nomination in this post… Um… let me get back to you on that when I can find one.

The Beatification of Beto

The media’s treatment of Texas Democratic candidate Beto O’Rourke wasn’t the most egregiously unfair coverage of the past year -- that would be the treatment of Brett Kavanaugh -- but it ranks among 2018’s most annoying. The endless glowing profiles of O’Rourke in every publication from Vanity Fair to ... Read More
