The Cap Times’ associate editor and frequent Bernie Sanders apologist John Nichols took on an unusual role in his most recent column: defending conservatism, William F Buckley and National Review against Donald Trump. This is not the result of some Damascene conversion on Nichols’ part. It is more along the lines of Dr. Peter Venkman‘s […]

John Nichols of The Nation and The Capital Times showed he’s lost all sense of proportion with this ridiculous tweet today: AFSCME leader Marty Beil was arrested at WI Capitol on 50th anniversary of March on Washington. @thenation — John Nichols (@NicholsUprising) August 28, 2013   Um, John, you might want to check this […]

(see below for updates) On the other hand, […]

When Wisconsin Democratic State Party Chairman Mike Tate was on Upfront with Mike Gousha this weekend, he was in a studio in Washington D.C. In between the “you knows” Tate had this to say about the efforts to recall Republican state senators. “These are really citizen driven efforts. You know, I mean that the bar […]

I actually think he writes some items that are a lot more thoughtful than most conservatives are willing to give him credit. If I really want to be outraged, I’ll read the […]

John Nichols of the Capital Times, the online conspiracy newsletter, thinks he has found the perfect model for Democratic candidates in Wisconsin. In Michigan, a state that like Wisconsin has been ravaged by free trade policies, where it is hard to keep track of the factory closings and where the unemployment rate in a number […]

Time once again to look back at the predictions of last January.  Robert Heinlein’s character Lazarus Long said that Cassandra did not get nearly the kicking she deserved.  Well, I hope I deserve better.
