Well, it’s December 19

Perhaps if I confidently predict there is no *way* the Electoral College will actually vote to reflect what the majority of Americans actually voted for, my talent for jinxing elections will result in the EC voting for Hillary and sparing us the catastrophe that is about to unfold. Nah. Ain’t gonna happen. We’re stuck with [Read More…]

Trump willing to keep parts of Obamacare

If those guys meet on 12/19 and say, “Screw it. Hillary is president” that would be *hilarious* (and also, of course, terrifying). The perfect capstone to the most bizarre election in US history.

Pressed repeatedly on whether he wanted the court [Read More…]

The Catholic Truth Society of Great Britain asked me to write a piece…
