2024: Trump’s in! What to expect

Trump launched a comeback bid on Tuesday, November 15, 2022, with his usual fact-free bombast and braggadoccio. His hour-long rant, carried live only by Fox and CNN, was filled with lies, exaggerations, and distortions (for examples, see story here). It also put people to sleep; both Fox and CNN cut[...]

Why Michael Cohen thinks Trump won’t run in 2024

Michael Cohen was Trump’s personal attorney, actually “fixer,” and went to prison for doing Trump’s dirty work. (Full disclosure: Cohen is biased; he’s not a Trump fan, and has nothing good to say about his former employer. So consider what he says with that in mind.) C[...]

Voters, not secretaries of state, elect presidents; but GOP candidates want to change that

To hear GOP candidates for secretary of state talk about elections, voters have nothing to do with them. Jim Marchant, the GOP candidate in Nevada, promised a Trump rally this weekend that if he’s elected, Trump will get Nevada’s electoral votes in 2024. It’s not that simple, of co[...]

Ron DeSantis’s hypocrisy

Florida GOP Gov. Ron DeSantis (photo, left), who wants to be president, suspended Tampa’s twice-elected Democratic prosecutor on Thursday, August 4, 2022, “for pledging not to enforce the state’s new 15-week abortion ban and for supporting gender-affirming treatments for minorsR[...]

Do polls show GOP voters coming to their senses? Not really

It’s too early to say that. Polls show a growing number of grassroots Republicans don’t want Trump to run again in 2024, but mostly for the wrong reason: They’re afraid he’d lose. In mid-July, Forbes reported only “20% of Republicans believe Trump’s behavior on Januar[...]

Buttigieg jumps to front of New Hampshire Democratic poll

The 2024 primaries are still a long way away, and in presidential politics, two years are an eternity. But political forecasting is a popular sport in America, and given several reasons to suspect Biden won’t run again (age, unpopularity, etc.), Democrats are looking around and pundits are par[...]

Florida bans rainbows

So obsessed is Gov. Ron DeSantis with banishing gay people to non-person status that rainbows are now illegal in and near Florida schools. Florida teachers also have to report gay students to the political police for being gay. “Teachers in Orange County, Florida are being told to scrape rainb[...]

Putin likely will survive; what should America do?

The Russian people are being forced to live in a dreamland, whether they want to or not, in which Putin’s aggression against Ukraine is a “sacred” duty of “defending the Motherland” and those supporting Ukraine are “international terrorist gangs.” Moreover, [...]

Will Romney be around after 2024?

Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) says he’s not thinking about the 2024 election. He isn’t raising campaign money for it, either. He’ll be 77 then, and if re-elected, would be in office until age 83. His voting record hasn’t endeared him to the crazies who now dominate the Republican P[...]

Does this mean they’re not friends anymore?

Trump says if he runs in 2024, Mike Pence won’t be his running mate (see story here). “I don’t think the people would accept it,” Trump said. “Mike and I had a great relationship except for the very important factor that took place at the end.” What “people” is he talkin[...]
