    "One can't believe impossible things," Alice objected. "I daresay you haven't had much practice," the Red Queen replied. "When I was your age, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast." You may be reading this sometime after breakfast, and six is a pretty large number of impossible things. But looking at developments in the 2016 campaign, I can see two impossible things -- impossible in the sense that almost every pundit (including me) ruled them out -- that might happen in the weeks and months...

    Jorge Ramos is the top news anchor at Univision and one of the most recognizable faces of the Latino community. On August 25, at a Donald Trump press conference in Dubuque, Iowa he was physically removed after asking tough questions on immigration to the presidential hopeful. Trump ordered him out after exclaiming "Go back to Univision". Once outside the conference room, one of Trump's supporters told Ramos: "It's not about you. Get out of my country! Get out! It's not about you." Those words translated Trump's true meaning. He has unleashed a campaign of hatred against the Latino community starting...

    In a speech in Iowa on Tuesday night, Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump -- who has regularly promoted his negotiating skills as a selling point for his presidency -- used broken English to briefly impersonate Asian negotiators. "When these people walk into the room, they don't say, 'Oh hello, how's the weather? It's so beautiful outside. How are the Yankees doing? They're doing wonderful, that's great," Trump said, to some laughter from the crowd. "They say, 'We want deal!'"

Instead of plotting against poor innocents like Bill and Hillary, those conspiratorial conservatives are now creating phony feuds among themselves! On Rachel Maddow's show tonight, Rather declared himself "suspicious" about the battle between Donald Trump and Fox News, suggesting that Trump and Roger Ailes might have "gotten together and planned out" the feud for their mutual benefit.

    WASHINGTON -- Every sulfurous belch from the molten interior of the volcanic Trump phenomenon injures the chances of a Republican presidency. After Donald Trump finishes plastering a snarling face on conservatism, any Republican nominee will face a dauntingly steep climb to reach even the paltry numbers that doomed Mitt Romney. It is perhaps quixotic to try to distract Trump's supporters with facts, which their leader, who is no stickler for dignity, considers beneath him. Still, consider these: The white percentage of the electorate has been shrinking for decades and will be about 2 points smaller in 2016 than in 2012....

At a press conference in Iowa on Tuesday, Trump had barely reached the podium before Jorge Ramos, superstar anchor for Spanish-language network Univision, began interrogating him about his immigration platform. Trump, who already had called on a different journalist for the first question, told Ramos to be quiet and wait his turn. Ramos refused: I have the right to ask a question, he declared. At a nod from The Donald, security escorted Ramos from the room. (video at link) Jorge Ramos may be the...

    You should know that last night, during Donald Trumps press conference in Dubuque, Iowa there was a confrontation between Univision reporter Jorge Ramos and US Presidential Candidate Donald Trump. After watching that interview, I believe that Jorge Ramos actions were an embarrassment to Hispanics, immigrants, reporters and to Univision. We all know that Donald Trump has become #1 in the polls because when he talks about immigration, he stirs a sentiment that resonates with many Americans who think that immigrants come here to take cover, be macho men, and enjoy the rights without respect, and do whatever they want to...

This is very important to the Hispanic community, he told host Chris Cuomo on CNNs New Day. This is also personal. It is extreme what he is saying about immigrants in this country, added Ramos, who has dual citizenship with both the U.S. and Mexico. This is not just his country. It is our country, too.

    At this rate, it’s hard to believe he won’t be the first mid-major candidate out of the race. His fundraising has been so poor, thanks in part to Ted Cruz soaking up lots of Texas money, that Perry had to temporarily stop paying his staff two weeks ago. The money’s since started flowing again as the campaign has begun to outsource operations to his Super PAC, which has plenty of dough in the bank, but there’s no getting around the perception that he’s struggling. With good reason: He’s currently at 1.3 percent in RCP’s poll average in Iowa. He hasn’t...

To call it a sought-after endorsement would be an understatement. Deace says prospective 2016 GOP campaigns began contacting him well before the 2012 election. (All just assumed that Mitt Romney was going to lose.) The recruitment efforts picked up in 2013 and 2014. When few people were paying any attention to the still-forming Republican race, Deace was hard at work. For me, this vetting process has been going on for a couple of years, he says. In our...

"These threats are not imagined, they're not made up. These are real people leading real lives who found themselves facing persecution simply for living out their faith. There is a war on faith in America today." Audience members frequently murmured "Amen" as Cruz spoke. ---...

    DES MOINES Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and actress Ellen Page, of Juno fame, got into a testy and free-wheeling discussion Friday over gay rights here at the Iowa State Fair. Im happy to answer your question but not to have a back-and-forth debate, Cruz told Page, as she pressed him about discrimination against LGBT citizens, approaching him as he flipped pork chops over an open grill. But the two then proceeded to have a spirited exchange over gay rights and whether private businesses florist companies, for example can refuse to cater gay weddings in the name of their...

    Donald Trump may be the spinning top that wont fall down, but his Iowa co-chair is cringing at some of his recent statements. On illegal immigration, he wants to gather up the families and ship them out? That was a boondoggle. The caucusgoers are like, What? That was a big mistake, Richard Thornton told The Des Moines Register. But Thorton still thinks the Republican candidate can plow forward, but he is going to have to expand his policy issues to do so. He told the Register Trump needs to focus on the economy, bringing back jobs from overseas and term...

    Here is the Trump political logic: Alabama is extremely critical, a close associate of Trumps told me (actually, we agreed Id call him a close associate of Mr. Trump). You have Iowas caucus on February 1st, New Hampshire on the 9th, and South Carolina on the 27th . The race, this associate explained, would not be wrapped up by then. According to this political calculus, the crucial moment arrives three days later, on March 1st, with the SEC primarythe belt of Southern states that encompass the Southeastern Athletic Conferencewhen Alabama, Texas, Georgia, Arkansas and several others hold their primaries. Trump...
