Democratic Candidates Apparently Can't Bring Themselves to Say the Word 'Abortion' Onstage

It seemed odd to a lot of people that the Democratic candidates debated each other on five separate occasions without being asked about abortion. The situation became much more curious last night, when Bernie Sanders finally raised the issue — but without using the word “abortion.” Clinton, too, never used the actual…


Hillary Got Swept in the New Hampshire Primary But Will Sweep Up the State's Superdelegates

The excellent campaign run so far by Bernie Sanders moves ever closer towards its greatest weakness: Sanders’ chances, or lack thereof, in the general election. The NH primaries foreshadowed a still hypothetical Trump-Sanders ballot—in which Sanders would, as many Democrats fear, be too far left, and we could be stuck…

Bill Clinton Criticizes Berniebros As Woman Who Accused Him of Assault Says She'll Rally Against Hillary

None other than Bill Clinton is criticizing the Berniebro phenomenon, saying at an event in New Hampshire this weekend that Sanders supporters subject his wife’s supporters online to sexist and “profane” attacks.

Hillary Clinton Defends Madeleine Albright After Her 'Special Place in Hell' Remarks

Yesterday, former secretary of state Madeleine Albright made waves when she took the Taylor Swift approach to introducing Hillary Clinton (or the Swift via Katie Couric via Albright approach.

Fox Pundit: Hillary Clinton's Desire to Be First Woman President Is 'Bra-Burning' 

One delightful thing about this campaign season will surely be the smart, self-aware, non-obnoxious ways people who don’t like Hillary Clinton talk about her. Like the always reliable media critics at Fox & Friends, who are merely pointing out that isn’t her campaign, in a way, just “bra-burning”?

Grizzled Young Writer Scoffs at Political Values, Bernie Leanings of Slightly Younger People

At the New Yorker, writer Alexandra Schwartz wonders if “millennials” should “get over Bernie Sanders,” owing to the outsized political hope that “youth” have before they realize that every politician is a shill, nobody with real values is actually electable, and also that God Is Dead. The writer knows this because…

Attention, Idiots: Stop Threatening to 'Spank' Hillary Clinton

Hard to believe we have to have this conversation, but here we are: GOP candidates, you must stop pledging to “spank” Hillary Clinton. You must stop suggesting voters should “spank” her. You must stop fantasizing about spanking her on the debate stage. Do you even realize how this makes you look? Surely you do.


The New York Times Endorses Hillary Clinton, Throws Shade at Poor Martin O'Malley

Is Hillary Clinton Part of the 'Establishment'? Hillary: 'I Don't Understand What That Means'

Like the stodgiest rappers on Earth arguing about who’s more legit, Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton have been engaged this week in a slow-motion beef over who, precisely, belongs to the “political establishment.” You may be surprised to learn Hillary Clinton does not think seem to think she is in that club.
