Ted Cruz: We’re in a 90 Day Sprint

Posted on: December 31st, 2015 by Mike Sax 3 Comments

I will say this for him: Ted Cruz is talking like a confident guy. What does he know that we don't? "Ted Cruz took a victory lap Thursday following a strong fundraising report, repeatedly telling supporters on a phone call that he expects the race to be over by March -- but only after getting through an increasingly nasty run-up to the Iowa caucuses." The political attacks, he warned, will get “uglier and uglier and uglier.” “We’re winning right now, and as a result, I want to tell everyone to get ready,” he said on the call.  “Strap on the full armor of God. Get ready...

The NSA and Israel: the Latest GOP Much to do About Nothing

Posted on: December 31st, 2015 by Mike Sax No Comments

No doubt the GOP will try to make a mountain out of the latest molehill-that we spied on Israel when Netanyahu was coming in for his big speech to the GOP Congress. The real scandal is that he was trying to interfere in US affairs and that Boehner and friends were so eager to allow him to do just that. But really, spying on Israel is shocking? All nations spy and not just on their enemies. "Top Democrats in Congress are brushing off a report that U.S. intelligence intercepted communications between Israeli government officials and lawmakers on Capitol Hill." "Rep. Eliot Engel (N.Y.), the...

Two Things We Seem to Know About Marco Rubio

Posted on: December 31st, 2015 by Mike Sax No Comments

First, is he's just a very lazy guy. He doesn't do his Senate job anymore because he's supposedly campaigning, but then he doesn't' campaign because-? Supposedly campaigning is obsolete and all that matters is appearing on Fox News and the Internet. Rubio going back to his earliest posts in Florida politics, has always seemed to treat each new job as a stepping stone to the next one. Ok, so maybe if he got the POTUS job he could climb no higher-would he then take that one seriously? Or maybe he'd be...

Tom Meserau on Bill Cosby

Posted on: December 31st, 2015 by Mike Sax No Comments

A lot of Americans feel that justice was done yesterday-and maybe it was. "Justice comes for Cosby: Already guilty in the court of public opinion, America’s Predatory Step Uncle now gets his day in court." I think that's the sense a lot of folks have and one that I tend to have myself. But remember, public opinion is one thing, court is another, or certainly should be.  Meserau-Michael Jackson's successful attorney- was on cable tv yesterday and from what he says, it's clear this will also be a very grueling...

Some Thoughts on Bill Cosby

Posted on: December 31st, 2015 by Mike Sax No Comments

Melissa Harris-Perry was subbing for Rachel Maddow last night-come back Rachel! Ok, Harris-Perry is never my favorite host in light of her attitude towards Hillary. Just because she's white doesn't mean she hasn't struggled as a woman, Ms. Harris-Perry! And she wasn't born privileged in the sense that Jeb Bush and the other Bushes were born privileged. If you want to call the Clinton's a 'dynasty' I'd argue its a meritocratic middle class dynasty. Ok, I digress. Harris-Perry has done a pretty decent job covering for Rachel. Last night of course H-P discussed Bill Cosby. She said it's...

Hannibal Buress-the Man Who Took Down Bill Cosby

Posted on: December 30th, 2015 by Mike Sax No Comments

After all, the Cosby rape and sexual battery stories had been around for years prior to his joke but only after it did this give a real impetus to the social media drive that finally ended with Cosby being charged today. "The charging of Bill Cosby with alleged aggravated indecent assault against a former Temple University employee – months after dozens of women came out with accusations, more than a decade after dark rumors began to circulate – has been strange in a number of ways." "The story of Cosby’s alleged crime has been in the news so much – and things move so quickly in...

Chris Cillizza tries to Hide His Own Terrible Year

Posted on: December 30th, 2015 by Mike Sax 2 Comments

This is the only way to explain his absurd claim that Hillary along with Jeb Bush had the worst year's in politics. Sure, Hillary is at 55 percent and Jeb is at 3 percent. You see the similarities? "I write a weekly column awarding someone — usually a political figure — the "Worst Week in Washington." It's just what it sounds like. At the end of the year, I write one big piece about who had the "Worst Year in Washington." President Obama won it in 2013 and 2014. This year, I named co-winners:Jeb Bush and Hillary...

GOP Can’t Take out Trump for Same Reason There’s No anti ISIS Coalition Yet

Posted on: December 30th, 2015 by Mike Sax 1 Comment

In time maybe the ISIS coalition will be easier. But it's the same basic scenario. Some have argued that the best interests of the Establishment is for the Establishment lane to be winnowed before NH. Yes, as Rubio, Jeb, Kasich, and Christie all have about 10 percent give or take each, if a couple got out of the race there's be a better chance to take out Trump there. But here is why this won't happen. Yes, each of these candidates-particularly Jeb and Kasich who have some sense of party loyalty and concern for the party would much rather have someone other than Trump or Cruz win. But...

Trump Manages Expectations in Iowa

Posted on: December 30th, 2015 by Mike Sax No Comments

I said yesterday, I think he gets this a lot better than the media wants to admit. There is talk whether he will really do the new ads he's talking about but then those who doubt this doubted he'd ever get in and if he did that he'd last. As for ground game were here some contradictory stories, but I'll say this-I was impressed that I myself received a Christmas card from him just for buying a couple of shirts and hats from him-for a joke-a couple of months ago. If he literally sent everybody who has...

Great Minds Think Allike

Posted on: December 30th, 2015 by Mike Sax No Comments

The minds in question here are those of Dean Obeidallah-and me. "Trump's various tweets alleging sexism versus Bill bring to mind the famous line from the movie "Princess Bride." In that classic comedy, Mandy Patinkin's character challenged another's incorrect use of a word with the statement: "You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means." Thank you, I've argued the same....
