Now that Iowa is behind us and the race ended the closest in the state's history, it's time for a quick reflection. I think that can be summed up by looking at social media and blogs. So just how well did Bernie do in Iowa? Well he did so well, that the Clinton supporters are out in full force trying to inform us that Bernie should just throw in the towel and give it up. As they say, welcome to the silly season!

Following up on my previous, Paul Pate, the Secretary of State of Iowa and a Republican has blasted the Cruz campaign for the mailing, calling it a "false representation of an official act". Traditionally stories like this, coming out only a couple days before voting/caucusing wouldn't have much affect on voters, but living in a time of social media, where more Americans are connected, that could very well change. 

The Conflicting Realism Of Obamacare By Hillary Supporters

There has already been a huge disagreement in Democratic circles over the plans of Sanders and Clinton for the nation's healthcare system, but something with Hillary's plan has not sat well, and her supporters enforce that.

Did Fox News Give Trump His Opening For A Independent Run?

A lot of talk has been on Donald Trump saying he won't attend the FOX GOP Debate Thursday night, but Fox may have ended up hurting the GOP.

An Attack On The Soul Of Democrats By Democrats

Putting aside all the "my candidate this, my candidate that", which is common throughout the history of elections, something much more troubling is brewing in this primary cycle; something that can threaten the very soul of democratic principals.

South Carolina is starting to feel the Bern. Last month Hillary Clinton had a 36 point lead on Bernie Sanders. That lead has eroded to 19 points, according to a new poll out this week. Even more interesting is that with a little over a month to go until the primary, 22% of Democrats are still undecided. Following past polls, Bernie has had a name recognition problem, but as that has closed his numbers have risen faster than Clinton's. With a focus on South Carolina over the next four weeks, we could see that change even more, and since South Carolina is a hybrid system on delegate allocation, that could help Bernie even more.

The Day Hope Died

My biggest fear about Hillary Clinton getting the nomination is starting to become a reality.

The media is all a flutter over the "big" endorsement of Donald Trump by Sarah Palin, but they seem to be ignoring another story about the Wassila Hill Billy family, particularly of her eldest son. Last night Track Palin was arrested for domestic violence and weapons charges. So as we most likely hear about conservative family values in the next hour from the former half-term Governor, let's think about her first born and what his family values apparently are.

Trump's Crazy Claim And Bad Saturday

At the South Carolina Tea Party Conference yesterday, Trump made one of the craziest claims yet, but also attacked Ted Cruz and got met with loud boos.
