Tonight’s debate prep brought to you by RightWisconsin

Over at RightWisconsin, the contributors (including moi) were asked to give our preview of tonight’s Republican debate. Of course, we all said that this debate will rank up there with the Lincoln-Douglas debates and the Buckley-Reagan debate on the Panama Canal. Well, actually, we said quite the opposite, as you can imagine. It has the potential to be a replay of the Holyfield-Tyson fight, but... [Read more]

No, really, we meant never

One of the most annoying complaints about “Never Trump” position is that somehow those who said they would never support Donald Trump are somehow responsible if he loses. If we say we’re never voting for Trump, and the Republicans nominate Trump, then surely the Republican voters took into account that we would never, ever vote for Trump. The Never Trump movement won’t elect... [Read more]

An Old Fashioned Friday Afternoon Cocktail

Our good friends at the McPaper chain have found an instruction video for making an Old Fashioned that they would not recommend following at home, especially if you’re a Wisconsinite: Okay, I’ll admit that’s a little more than 3 oz of bourbon. As one YouTube commenter posted, “May as well just pour the other ingredients into the bottle and drink from that.” At least the... [Read more]

Trump’s Obamacare clone

Remind me again why some Republicans were not enthusiastic about Mitt Romney? The health care issue? Just prior to the Wisconsin primary, I wrote for MacIver: The most interesting aspect of the Trump plan is call to make Medicaid a block grant program. What the Trump campaign means by block grant is not really a block grant. Elsewhere in the plan, it states, “As we allow the free market to provide... [Read more]
