The Real Democratic Presidential Problem: No Bench

11:06 AM 02/22/2017

It took a few months, but Democrats are finally starting to get over Hillary's loss in November. But as they move on, they have an even harsher reality to face: they have no future leaders, mostly because the old guard won't get out of the way.

Has The GOP Finally Lost California For Good?

6:31 PM 01/30/2017

As we drag on into the second post-election month, the rare honest discussion remains centered around what a poor candidate Hillary Clinton was, what a poor campaign she ran, etc. But Hillary scored a big win that should be a little disconcerting to any California Republican, the few who remain.

‘Longmire’ And Hollywood’s Misplaced Demographic Focus

3:13 PM 09/05/2014

Hollywood is an inexplicable place, often behaving in ways that are downright detrimental to its business. We saw that last week with A&E's decision to cancel "Longmire," its second-most popular show behind the fast-fading "Duck Dynasty."

It threw out the "Start" menu and mouse-driven interface people had used for decades in favor of a touch-driven interface with tiles, some of which received active information updates.

Is Physical Media In Danger of Extinction?

6:32 PM 07/28/2014

You've seen DVD rental stores closing up shop at a rapid pace, and the DVD sales section at Best Buy shrinking. Now comes a study that confirms what you've been seeing: DVD sales and rentals are in rapid decline and will be surpassed by streaming video in just a few years.

How The Left Drives Itself Crazy

10:06 AM 07/14/2014

A week after the Supreme Court's Hobby Lobby decision and the left shows no sign of even cooling its rhetoric, much less coming to terms with the truth. Don't even bother trying to point out that the chain covers 16 of 20 birth control products; that's a wasted effort. They retort with outrageous claims, like the this particular hyperventilating article on the Huffington Post.

Leave The Polar Bears Alone

2:56 PM 06/06/2014

By now you have likely seen the report that polar bear populations were reported to be much lower than they actually are, "to satisfy public demand." The notion that scientists would alter their findings to suit public emotions – because that's what public demand ultimately is – is very disturbing, but also not surprising.
