Ted Cruz


The DNC’s Unscheduled Events

The DNC's Unscheduled EventsThe other party’s having a convention this week. Instead of being outright racist and hateful, they are simply comically inept. It’s great to have choices in a democracy!

If you’re in Philly for the convention, check out The Nib’s HQ at 303 Cherry Street between 12 and 6pm. I won’t be there, but a lot of my friends will. I have a bunch of work at the space, including some swag you can take home.

The Judiciary Committee’s Absentee Excuses

Absentee ExcusesI previously picked on Mitch McConnell for stonewalling President Obama just hours after Scalia kicked the bucket. McConnell’s Republican pals on the Senate Judiciary Committee are pulling the same crap and refusing to even meet with Merrick Garland. They really have no endgame, this is just obstruction for obstruction’s sake.

Campaign Swag Bag

Campaign Swag BagThe primaries have just begun, and the party in-fighting will get even more heated for another month or so, making social media a veritable wasteland of outrage and insufferability. When the dust settles and the nominee is known, they’ll have to kiss and make up with the supporters of the candidates they’ve spent all winter savaging.

The GOP’s Winter Wonderland

The GOP's Winter WonderlandUnlike Frosty the Snowman, the Trump campaign the GOP brought to life won’t go away when the temperatures rise. We’re just over a month away from the primaries and we’ll find out if Trump’s poll numbers translate into votes and make the GOP’s decades of implicit racism explicit.
