The Senate majority leader voiced frustration over the moniker, given him for blocking two election security bills.
Donald Trump asserting that he may not accept the results of the U.S. presidential elections if he doesn't win is, of course, empty posturing. The results are legally binding.
When in the past have you ever heard the term "unendorse" used? We haven't checked, but we believe it just got coined and added to the political lexicon.
Pretty much every pundit in the mainstream media got down on their knees and thanked a recent poll which showed Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton neck-and-neck in three key swing states this week, because they truly want this gravy train to continue.
It's been a pretty momentous week in the history of American politics, folks. The Republican Party is going to nominate Donald Trump to run for the highest office in the land. Politics and entertainment are now one.
History has shown that Americans will, and have, accepted unlikeable leaders, when individuals possess exceptional talent. But in 2016, likeability, not talent, may be the most important attribute going, because it insures amnesty for insults, snarky come-backs and wild accusations.

Jeb Bush, in case you haven't heard, spent the entire week coming up with a believable answer to one question After watching Bush twist in the wind this week, we can't help but wonder if the 2016 Republican nomination race is going to closely resemble the 2008 Democratic nomination fight.
At Thursday's hearing, the Baha'i resolution, authored by indicted Rep. Michael Grimm (R-N.Y.), was approved by a unanimous
Even when Republicans weren't shooting at their own feet this week, it appears they were conducting a circular firing squad instead. The 2014 campaign, in other words, is off to a raucous start... and it's only February.
The worst offender I saw in the press was Dana Milbank. I found him terribly hypocritical because he offered two almost completely contrasting takes on the CBO report on successive days, without ever admitting he'd done so.
In fact, it was even a big week just for political anniversaries. Fifty years ago this week, an event of no little importance happened. I speak, of course, tomorrow's 50th anniversary of the first broadcast of Doctor Who by the BBC.
Milbank used racially charged language to explain why he thinks the team's name is problematic. Warning: This post contains
