Balance — Governor Mike Pence Speaks to Packed House at Reagan Library

Balance — Governor Mike Pence Speaks to Packed House at Reagan Library

By Debra Tash Governor Michael Richard “Mike” Pence spoke at the Reagan Library to a sold out audience.  Six weeks ago, Donald Trump tapped the governor for his running mate.  Pence, a contrast to the flamboyant Republican presidential nominee, said he’s often compared to radio talk host show, Rush Limbaugh — on decaf.   This […]

Hillary Clinton, Servergate, and the Steve Martin Defense

Hillary Clinton, Servergate, and the Steve Martin Defense

By Thomas L. Knapp “Two simple words in the English language” should be a sufficient defense against charges of tax evasion or armed robbery, says Steve Martin in a routine captured on his 1979 standup album Comedy is Not Pretty! The two words? “I forgot.” Some jokes are funny because they reveal uncomfortable truths. Other […]

Clinton: Unhinged?

Clinton: Unhinged?

By Thomas L. Knapp Following multiple damning email leaks and disclosures, Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign decided, in the weirdest attempt at damage control I’ve ever seen, to  invoke the late Allen Ginsberg’s “America”: “America it’s them bad Russians. Them Russians them Russians and them Chinamen. And them Russians.” Forget the content of the leaks. Just focus […]

What the #NeverTrump crowd doesn’t understand

A political action committee has been convened by a group of prominent Republicans staffers to organize GOP support for the Libertarian presidential ticket of Gary Johnson.

Hillary Clinton’s lying advantage

Hillary Clinton’s lying advantage

Wit and humor have been drained from our politics, and this year it’s just as well. There’s not much to laugh about. Either candidate would be something of joke enough in any other year. Donald Trump sometimes tries to make a funny, but Bob Hope himself never tried to make anyone laugh with a blunderbuss. […]

Election 2016: Think Three’s a Crowd? Try 2,000

By Thomas L. Knapp Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump says Libertarian presidential nominee Gary Johnson is a “fringe candidate.” I’m not sure what definition of “fringe” Trump is using. Johnson is a former governor, elected twice as a Republican in a Democrat-leaning state. Trump’s main presidential qualification seems to be his legendary skill at trolling […]

L. Neil Smith’s The Libertarian Enterprise — THE LESSER OF TWO EVILS

By L. Neil Smith Apparently, our friend P.J. O’Rourke is back, to the extent that he ever left, and last night I heard that he dislikes Donald Trump so intensely — P.J. called him a “flying monkey” — that he’s going to vote for the Deathcamp Dolly, instead. I could speculate about what brought P.J. […]
