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 […]

Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker joined in the complaining that somehow Texas Senator Ted Cruz should’ve endorsed Donald Trump because of the pledge everyone signed after Trump threatened to run as an independent. Aside from pointing out the obvious, that Trump himself said he wouldn’t honor the pledge and he didn’t expect it from the senator, […]

Television commentators are still in a tizzy that Republican convention goers are chanting, “lock her up!” Over at RightWisconsin, I explained why it’s a little different to say lock up Hillary compared to saying that about other political opponents: But what the commentators are missing is that this is more than just a set of […]

WTMJ’s Charlie Sykes had me as a guest on his show to discuss “the week in review.” Believe it or not, it wasn’t me with the classic movie reference. If you’re wondering what we discuss off the air, failed vice presidential candidate trivia, bathroom plumbing and martini glass chillers. Always a fun time. I hope […]

Over at RightWisconsin, I explain that Indiana Governor Mike Pence may not be Donald Trump’s best choice for a running mate: While picking Pence may seem “safe” for Trump, it’s certainly an odd position for the Indiana governor. After,_official_portrait,_112th_Congress.jpglosing a congressional election in 1991, Pence wrote an essay, “Confessions of a Negative Campaigner,” for […]

I don’t know if Senator Ron Johnson understands it or not but his path to re-election is a lot easier if Donald Trump loses the Republican nomination. Over At RightWisconsin, I explain why the mere mention of Trump becomes an anchor on the Johnson campaign. Johnson was interviewed on Fox News and he said that […]

Every flyover state looks the same when you’re flying on Trump airlines, but after Tuesday it’s unlikely Donald Trump will look at Wisconsin the same way again. Over at RightWisconsin, I explain how the endorsement by Governor Scott Walker of Texas Senator Ted Cruz, and Trump’s reaction to it, shows just how much the New […]

Wisconsin does not allocate Republican delegates proportionally. As I explain over at RightWisconsin, every vote cast for Ohio Governor John Kasich is a lost opportunity to vote against Donald Trump. …if Kasich draws enough former Rubio voters, he could block Cruz’s campaign from winning a plurality statewide. That would award the eighteen statewide delegates to […]

WTMJ’s Charlie Sykes and the editors of RightWisconsin are endorsing Texas Senator Ted Cruz in the April 5th Wisconsin Presidential Primary. They explain: So, once again, it comes down to Wisconsin. In recent years, we’ve grown accustomed to being at the center of American politics, and this occasion is no different. In the next two […]

Over at RightWisconsin, I explain that we have no responsibility to Donald Trump as the GOP nominee for President and we actually have an obligation to oppose him. We are not bound by the pledges of Trump’s erstwhile opponents to support the party nominee. We are bound by our consciences to oppose a demagogic egomaniac […]
