Let’s See What We Can Deduce About These Democrats, Based Entirely On If They Sit Like A Dude, A Girl, Or A Senator From Massachusetts

4:29 PM 06/22/2016

Democratic congressmen are mad they haven't voted on a gun-ban bill yet, so on Wednesday, they sat down on the floor of the House of Representatives. The House banged the gavel and ended the session, cutting off the cameras and most of their publicity, but thanks to social media, we get to catch a glimpse of congressional floor-sitting styles.

SPRINGTIME To Break Out Some Mango Habanero And Grapefruit IPAs

3:10 PM 04/03/2016

It's springtime. Ish. And just as men are suddenly allowed to wear searsucker, and women, praise be upon them, sundresses, we're allowed to throw a little pep into our beer. So it is in this spirit that The Daily Caller went off the beaten trail and tried a few of America's stranger IPAs.

Why Public Polling Was Wrong But Campaign Reads Were So Right

11:22 PM 02/07/2016

MANCHESTER, N.H. -- In the two weeks that lead up to Monday’s opening salvos in Iowa, pundits and observers saw something interesting unfold. Sens. Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio had an extra hop in their step, even while the public media polls remained about the same, with Donald Trump winning almost every one conducted. The secret to these teams’ newfound enthusiasm was simple: They know something we don’t know.

This Is Where Chris Christie Plans To Beat Marco Rubio

9:33 AM 01/15/2016

CHARLESTON. S.C. -- Gov. Chris Christie's campaign headed to Iowa at 7:30 Friday morning. There's no time to rest after a rowdy night marked by clashes with Sen. Marco Rubio: The campaign is betting on the long slog through a winnowing field, rather than pulling in front of the Florida senator he sparred with in either of the first two nomination contests.

In 2017, Americans Might Celebrate Thanksgiving With Haggis

11:13 PM 11/25/2015

Rejoice, lovers of meat and adventure. Or give thanks, as it were. In two years, you may very well be able to enjoy a spot of Scottish lamb with your American turkey. And with that lamb, all that comes with it -- including, even, the legendary Scotch haggis.

Best Of Enemies: Gore Vidal, Bill Buckley, And The Debate That Changed America [VIDEO]

11:49 PM 07/29/2015

1968. Student radicals burned their own campuses in the name of freedom; angry Americans torched their own neighborhoods for more of the same. America's wise men sent hundreds of thousands of teenagers into a jungle with no clear goal or commitment to victory. Back at home, Martin Luther King was dead. So was Bobby Kennedy. And on the TV, a third-rate joke of a network called ABC made television history by stringing together a tiny budget to have William F. Buckley debate Gore Vidal live on the air.

Jeb Bush’s Campaign Is In A Lot More Trouble Than They’re Letting On

12:07 AM 06/11/2015

Former Gov. Jeb Bush's campaign is in trouble. This week alone, it has sustained a top-level campaign shake-up and reports have circulated that it may fall short of its fundraising goal. But a review of the public record shows it already fell way short of its fundraising goal, and has been behind predictions for months. Not by a few million dollars, either, but by as much as $400 million -- or 80 percent as the most optimistic predictions Bush loyalists have circulated.

How Obama’s Politics Have Set Hillary Up To Fail

11:38 PM 06/07/2015

Hillary Clinton gave a speech Thursday slamming four Republican presidential contenders by name and claiming that the GOP is "deliberately trying to stop" young and minority voters. Tough words, sounded good. Played well with an audience that began booing as soon as Gov. Rick Perry's name left her lips.
