    First national poll (by PPP) since caucuses on Monday shows Cruz and Rubio closing the gap dramatically . Hmmm.

    PPP Poll December 17th
    Trump 34
    Cruz 18
    Rubio 13

    PPP Poll February 3rd
    Trump 25
    Cruz 21
    Rubio 21

    It’s only one poll…I get that…but still interesting to many I’m sure.

      PPP, Carville part owner, uses a model very similar to Rasmussen. they are pretty good at what they do.

      Trump is a TV show. People eventually get tired of TV shows, quickly if they don’t stay fresh.

  • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

    Stacy Dash hit the nail on the head.

    “What I hate is the stereotypes that so-called “black entertainment” has created. I hate they say that I am not ‘black enough’ once I open my mouth. I hate that liberals make the rules – white liberals are the most racist people I’ve ever met. They demand that black people act a certain way, vote a certain way, and think a certain way.”

      Evidently, Dash doesn’t get that it’s all settled science.

      • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

        I’m sure that some of these “tolerant” liberals would call her “uppity.”

        • When they aren’t patronizingly explaining race relations to her.

          • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

            And all the while telling her exactly what she should and shouldn’t be offended by.

          • And when that card is exhausted, just go full racist and call her idiot, moron, rhymes-with-witch etc.

          • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

            Why don’t they just quit the act and go with the racial slurs? You know that they are chomping at the bit to do it.

    A current issue that shows slant/ bias reporting like no other: the Flint Michigan water problem. The congressional hearings yesterday as reported by:
    SPECIAL REPORT: EPA mismanagement highlights of testimony
    CBS THIS MORNING: state officials mismanagement, not even a mention of EPA

    Yes, Virginia, Republicans kill black people.

    • Cecelia

      I suggest you read the Daily Howler on this.

      Somerby cuts through the bluster and political posturing and gives the information about how the rise in lead levels comport with what was deemed the norm as late as 2008, etc.

  • Cecelia

    Thank you, Mr. Concha, for elucidating upon what is obvious in the midst of the usual people playing their usual game of pretending that it’s not obvious.

    Re debate : I thought they were trying to have less debates not keep adding more…

  • sky303

    Re MSNBC: that reminds of MSNBC in 2008 when they were all politics like there was no tomorrow …

  • Erik Wemple is the Tommy Christopher of the Washington Post.

    • Nixon – niihpikiiookani

      Wemple is simply flatus from a lousy paper.

    • Cecelia

      It’s true that Wemple has always been a critic of Fox, and of O’Reilly in particular, but he ain’t comparable to T.C. (even *if he is as leftist).
