Quotes of the day
9/1/2015 10:41:03 PM  Allahpundit

Apparently "cops' lives matter" is now an insult
9/1/2015 10:01:39 PM  Jazz Shaw
Janell Ross is listed as a “race, gender, immigration and inequality reporter” at the Washington Post, and someone we’ve run across here at Hot Air before. In keeping with her assigned “beat” in public news, Ms. Ross has

9/1/2015 9:21:16 PM  Mary Katharine Ham
Former Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels, upon passing on a run for the Republican nomination in 2012, took an interesting career turn. The famously fiscally conservative executive, who devised savings for the Hoosier state on everything from ??? to paper

Poll: Trump now easily beating Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio, and Scott Walker head to head nationally
9/1/2015 8:41:40 PM  Allahpundit
So says PPP, the same outfit responsible for that poll a few weeks back showing Trump losing head-to-head match-ups against Rubio and Walker in North Carolina. Either NC is an outlier or the mood has changed nationally because Republicans across America

Video: Project Veritas Action catches Team Hillary campaign violation
9/1/2015 8:01:00 PM  Ed Morrissey
Not long ago, the Hillary Clinton campaign bragged about thwarting Project Veritas Action and their efforts to conduct undercover investigations into their campaign practices.  In this new video, though, PVA didn’t need to go undercover. One of

Trump ad hits back at Jeb: If I'm the liberal, why are you giving Hillary Clinton awards for public service?
9/1/2015 6:01:10 PM  Allahpundit
A smart counter to Jeb’s ad this morning. Trump could have gone after Bush for his heresies on policy, like immigration or Common Core, but swiping at him for his coziness with the Clintons is a more viscerally populist message. After all, the

Say, whatever happened to the deep Republican bench?
9/1/2015 5:21:30 PM  Ed Morrissey
This was supposed to be the cycle of the Deep Republican Bench. In the past two presidential cycles, especially in 2012, Republicans lacked fresh and proven talent to bid for the White House. In both cycles, we saw the Next In Line candidate prevail over

Mitch McConnell to conservatives: Look, we don't have the numbers in the Senate to defund Planned Parenthood
9/1/2015 4:41:54 PM  Allahpundit
We do have the numbers to force a shutdown, but McConnell’s already ruled that out. I’m going to look on the bright side here: At least this guy’s trying to spare us another dismal episode of GOP failure theater. If we had a majority in

Bernie Sanders: Vietnam conscientious objector
9/1/2015 4:01:36 PM  Jazz Shaw
Somehow I’m not really sure that this is a disqualifier among Democrats these days, assuming it ever was. Hillary supporters seem to be getting desperate enough to lob some actual shots across Bernie Sanders’ bow now, and one of them was an

9/1/2015 2:41:13 PM  Jazz Shaw
Another twist has come up in the case of the assassination of Texas sheriff’s deputy Darren Goforth. The suspect in the case was reportedly “found to be mentally incompetent” in 2012 when he was charged in a felony assault case. This is

The Federalist: Smoking guns in latest Hillary e-mail release? Update: Another?
9/1/2015 2:01:33 PM  Ed Morrissey
Did the latest release of Hillary Clinton server e-mails uncover a “smoking gun” proving a criminal violation of the law? Chuck Todd earlier said no, but The Federalist’s Sean Davis says yes indeedy. The smokiest of these

Oh yes: Some Romney donors still holding out hope he'll jump in and rescue the GOP
9/1/2015 1:21:48 PM  Allahpundit
The more you hate Romney the more you should want him in the race, not just for strategic reasons, because it’ll split the center further, but for sheer comic value. If you think it’s funny watching Trump invent new insults daily to question

Todd: The convenience argument is the worst Hillary can use, you know
9/1/2015 12:41:41 PM  Ed Morrissey
“Knowingly is the key word,” Chuck Todd tells the hosts of NBC’s Today this morning, arguing that yesterday’s release of 7,000 Hillary Clinton e-mails did not provide a smoking gun on illegality. Hillary has recently shifted her

9/1/2015 12:01:17 PM  Jazz Shaw

Let the attack ads begin: New Jeb Bush ad hits Trump for being a fake conservative
9/1/2015 11:21:17 AM  Allahpundit
Fair question from Amanda Carpenter: Why is Jeb knocking Trump? Those aren't his voters. Shouldn't he be trying to pick off support from Walker, Rubio, Kasich…? — Amanda Carpenter (@amandacarpenter) September 1, 2015 Why would the
