Short lived memes based on old comedy sketches is one of my favorite things about the endless void that is the internet, and "she doesn't have the range" is currently ticking off all those boxes. For the uninitiated, "she doesn't have the range" is a line from a British sketch comedy show, but it has reentered popular culture with a savvy Twitter user who applied it to current pop stars.Read More
Not Martin O'Malley, that's for sure.
The race right now is between Senator Sanders, socialist-democratic Senator from Vermont, and Secretary Hillary Clinton, former Senator from New York, former Secretary of State, and former presidential candidate. Who do I think is going to win?
Let's just say I'm not #FeelingTheBern and I don't think this country is #OverTheHillz. Hillary Clinton is outpolling Bernie Sanders by 16 points, according to a recent NBC poll. Recently, Senator Sanders hit a new high, with 33% of Democratic voters saying they would support him.

In Iowa specifically, Bernie is polling at 40%, impressive, but still distant behind Clinton's 51%Read More

But I want to clear up the idea that Senator Sanders is the only choice for progressives, because Hillary Clinton is a moderate wolf in Democrat clothing.Read More
I’ll confess. I didn’t come out of the womb Ready for Hillary. I wasn’t even Ready for Hillary in 2008. Until recently, I still wasn’t Ready for Hillary. I was Holding Out Hope for Joe Biden, or Assuming Elizabeth Warren Would Run, or even Maybe Going to Give Bernie Sanders A Try. But I was, and on some level remain, Skeptical of Hillary.
After the November Midterm Elections, and with Hillary Clinton’s announcement that she would be running for President in 2016, I can finally say that I am totally Ready for Hillary.Read More
