Mitt Romney suspends his campaign… To find a third party anti-Trump candidate

As Trump gets stronger (and polls better) the odds that #NeverTrumpers could achieve their goals have all but collapsed.

How I Acted Like A Pundit And Screwed Up On Donald Trump

Since Donald Trump effectively wrapped up the Republican nomination this month, I’ve seen a lot of critical self-assessments from empirically minded journalists — FiveThirtyEight included, twice over — about what they got wrong on Trump. This instinct to be accountable for one’s predictions is good since the conceit of “data journalism,” at least as I see it, is to apply the scientific method to the news.

In Alien vs. Predator, I'm for Predator, Because He's OUR Predator

A fit of high dudgeon has gripped many of my Republican friends, ex-friends, and soon-to-be-ex-friends now that Donald Trump has all but won the Republican nomination. My advice to them: get over it. This presidential race will look like Alien vs. Predator. I'm for Predator, without a second's hesitation, because he's our Predator.

Hillary Clinton has a lot of donors in the Justice Department, with some in high places

When James Comey concludes his FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email affairs he will have to decide whether or not to turn the case over to the Justice Department for prosecution.

With that in mind, Secretary Clinton must be finding some reason to be hopeful in the fact that plenty of the people in the Department of Justice are donors to her presidential campaign.
