The GOP may pull this out for us yet!

When it comes to the 2018 midterms, I’ve been saying it for at least the last 6 weeks now, “Play like you’re ten points down with 2:00 left to go in the game.”The numbers don’t matter, the intensity don’t matter, none of it means jack if you don’t get “souls to the polls.” Rest in the…

A 'Plumber' on the Supreme Court

In the wake of Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court, Americans will long debate whether he was the first (or, arguably, the second) member of the nation’s highest court to have engaged in sexual misconduct.
