  • Why Ted Cruz Won Iowa

    While the attention of political pundits has already moved on to next week's New Hampshire primary, the outcome in Iowa provides an interesting preview of the road ahead. Cruz's win provides a clearer picture of GOP voters.

  • Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Roosh?

    Kelly Hayes of Truthout: "I am not afraid of Roosh Valizadeh. Because to me, he is not the face of rape. I am afraid because most of the women I know who have survived assault have not been abused by blustering creeps like Roosh."

“I’m going to kill you.”
“Uh, why?”
“I don’t like you and what you stand for.”
“But a lot of people think I’m OK, or at least they tolerate me.”
“They're crazy too. I’m going to shoot you. That will be the method.”
“But that’d be against the law.”
“OK, let’s negotiate.”
“What?”
“I won’t kill you. I’ll maim an arm. Which arm do you prefer?”
“You’re giving me a choice of which arm to lose and somehow there’s a victory in there for me?”
“Damn, you drive a hard bargain. I’ll shoot you in the foot. Wait---a toe only. You have to go along with that. It’s fair.”
“Fair?”
“You get to live and keep most of your body intact.”
“I don’t think you should be shooting me at all. In fact, I insist on it.”
“You are so unreasonable. See, everyone!! He won’t come to the table!”
