NEW YORK CITY---In the days leading up to the first election results, reporters have busied themselves running around Manhattan complaining that they cannot find any New York Donald Trump supporters to interview. They're actually pretty easy to spot: they're the ones in blue uniforms.

This Man, ‘The Voice Of The Silent Majority’ For A Half Century, Has Lived Conservative History Like None Other
The New York Times called Lee Edwards "the voice of 'the Silent Majority," as he stood among 25,000 Americans he had gathered at the Washington Monument to support U.S. soldiers in Vietnam. It was November, 1969.
Las Vegas, NV --- Four miles off "The Strip," through traffic jams and dozens of roads blocked by police, in a parking lot off the side of Route 15, sits Stoney's Rockin' Country cowboy bar. Next to the bar, there's a long "Great America PAC" bus, and inside, hundreds of rowdy Trump fans are ready for the final debate of 2016.
The federal government is clear on identity: "Managers, supervisors, and coworkers should use the name and pronouns appropriate to the gender the employee is now presenting at work."
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
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.
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.
Cans of the District's long-lost Heurich, pre-Prohibition lager is back.
WASHINGTON, DC -- As I write, a political pundit on a bar stool not far away is leaning over his fourth glass of Pinot Grigio, breathlessly telling his friend the truth about Donald Trump.
On Friday afternoon, we reached peak Chris Christie.
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. [crscore]Ted Cruz[/crscore] and [crscore]Marco Rubio[/crscore] 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.
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. [crscore]Marco Rubio[/crscore]: 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.
CHARLESTON, S.C. --- Thursday's Fox Business Republican presidential debate sees two fewer candidates on the main stage, and is the second-to-last debate before voting begins on Feb. 1, when the very real winnowing begins.
A third-party Donald Trump candidacy -- conservative and establishment Republicans' worst nightmare -- has been realized, just not where they expected.
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.
The debate is over, and voters have had a full day to grieve over Jeb Bush's body, to process Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio's ascendance, and to listen to vacant D.C. pundits pretend John Kasich is somehow impressive. So now can we talk about how awful Mike Huckabee was?
On Saturday, Jeb Bush complained that he had "a lot of really cool things" to do other than run for president. He didn't want to "sit around, being miserable, listening to people demonize me and me feeling compelled to demonize them.” Gone, it seems, was the "joy in my heart" he had planned to campaign on.
Are we conservative?
Jeb Bush is in a bad place.
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.
Next month, Ohio Gov. John Kasich is going to announce that he's running for president for some reason.
