    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)Meghan McCain, always outspoken, says she’s got one big regret — calling Rep. Michele Bachmann a “poor man’s Sarah Palin.” “That’s the one if I could take it back I would, because I just think it’s so linear and so nasty,” McCain said in an interview with POLITICO. “And I’m not a big fan of attacking another woman anymore.” The two are now friends, and the congresswoman has even appeared on McCain’s show, “Take Part Live” on the Pivot Network. “It’s so crazy … she’s not the type of person you’d think I connect with,” McCain added. “It’s just with...

    The daughter of former Republican presidential candidate John McCain has celebrated equal marriage arriving in the family’s home state of Arizona. A judge struck down the Arizona’s same-sex marriage ban yesterday, and the state’s attorney general declined to appeal – allowing marriages to begin immediately. Meghan McCain – the daughter of the 2008 Presidential candidate, who had anti-gay Sarah Palin as his running mate – was jubilant at the news. The rights activist – who sits on the board of rights charity GLAAD despite her father’s opposition to equal marriage – tweeted: “Marriage equality is now legal in my home...

    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) is fast becoming the king of useless fights and empty gestures. First came his destructive government shutdown gambit. Then came his half-baked idea for fighting the Islamic State. Then he set up a showy albeit unnecessary confrontation with a Christian group, managing to be the only one on the right these days magnifying differences between Jews and Christians — unlike, say, Gov. Mike Huckabee, who rallies Christians and Jews to a shared fight against jihadists bent on slaughtering both. And now Cruz is pushing a constitutional amendment to prevent federal courts from vindicating the rights of...

    It’s no secret that Sen. Mark Begich (D-AK) is in trouble. He votes with the president too often for many Alaskans’ liking, he’s too absent in Congress, and the Democratic candidate for governor has even declined to endorse him. Politico’s Amanda Coyne, however, apparently thinks Begich’s opponent, Dan Sullivan, is more fun to criticize. Among her jabs: Sullivan’s speeches are too predictable, he has only lived in Alaska for 12 years, and he doesn’t know when to pause during speeches. For shame! Coyne saved a bit of mockery for the “Rally for the Valley” held near former Governor Sarah Palin’s...

On Thursday, the three-term Kansas senator turned to tea party darling Sarah Palin to rally voters behind his flagging campaign. The former Alaska governor praised Roberts for standing with Sen.

    “Gov. Palin is one of our party’s grassroots leaders, and we are thrilled to have her support in this important race for U.S. Senate. Republicans in Kansas, and across the country, are uniting around our campaign because we cannot win the Senate majority without Pat Roberts,” said Roberts’ campaign manager, Corry Bliss, in a statement. http://www.hutchnews.com/news/local_state_news/roberts-campaign-thrilled-to-have-palin-s-support/article_6b856110-4e6a-5a03-823a-bd538814fdfb.html

    Barack Obama is taking the nation to war on his own terms yet again. It is not the first time he has done so, but so many in the press are determined to believe that the war in Iraq and Syria has transformed Obama into war president. The new fight will be a complex campaign which, while necessary, is being waged in a fashion that often appears to elevate domestic political considerations over operational necessities. That is a terrible way to fight a war, and it merits criticism. It is that legitimate criticism Obama’s defenders would prefer to avoid addressing....

    Sarah Palin will campaign for incumbent Republican Senator Pat Roberts (R-KS) in Independence, Kansas on Thursday. Roberts is in need of help from the Tea Party favorite, as recent polls show he trails independent Greg Orman in this fall's general election. Last week, the Kansas State Supreme Court granted Democratic nominee Chad Taylor's request to be removed from the ballot, setting up a two-person race between Roberts and Orman. Roberts defeated Tea Party challenger Dr. Milton Wolf in the August 5 Republican primary by a relatively narrow margin of 47% to 41% in a bitterly personal contest that left many...

    On Tuesday morning, The View’s “conservative” co-host Nicolle Wallace gave a ringing endorsement for Governor Chris Christie (R-N.J.) should he decide to run for president in 2016. Unfortunately for the New Jersey governor, her reasons for supporting him probably won’t help him win over many Republican primary voters. During a discussion about Chris Christie’s 2016 prospects, Wallace eagerly threw her hat in for the New Jersey Republican and proclaimed that “his politics are an interesting and progressive and modern swath of the country and I’d like to see him in.” (VIDEO-AT-LINK)The segment began with a discussion of Governor Christie’s weight...

    Joe Biden made three (or perhaps four) gaffes this past week, but a recent public speaking mishap might have flown under the media radar. In that instance, the VP seemingly made up a president who never existed. In a trifecta this week, the Democrat had to apologize for using the perceived anti-Semitic term “Shylocks,” referred to Asia as “the Orient” which was deemed offensive to Asian Americans, and praised former colleague Bob Packwood — a lawmaker who was chased out of the U.. Senate amidst sexual harassment charges in 1995 — in front of a women’s group. In August, moreover,...
