Jeff Van Drew, the personification of a 2018 DCCC recruit

It's hard to say which DCCC recruit will likely be the worst POS if he gets into Congress. But it's impossible to draw up a short list without including New Jersey Blue Dog/New Dem Jeff Van Drew. Van Drew has a record as a...

I get all sorts of emails from Trumpanzee and his Repug Party. I'm on their list so that you don't have to be. Lately, I've been getting ones that reflect an increasing paranoia. Imagine that! One, for instance, purports to be from Trump and asks, plaintively, "Noah,...

It's always been obvious that FOX "News" was never meant to be anything but a propaganda outlet for the Republican Party. Even its origins lie in Roger Ailes plans for what he called a "GOP TV" network that he proposed to his then boss, President Nixon, back in the...
