  1. So the great Hillary Clinton probably had to cheat (winning 6 of 6 coin tosses?) to beat an old, grumpy almost-communist? There’s quite a story.

  2. If you are a twitter stooge how much of a #laughing stock can you be…….2 random tweets from the “Fox News backs Trump” experts last night:

    10:27 PM – 1 Feb 2016
    Next on FNC is new Trump cult member Geraldo.

    then just 4 min later when Geraldo had actually said something that Tump cult member comment seem pretty dumb.

    10:31 PM – 1 Feb 2016
    Even Geraldo calls Trump the biggest loser of the night as Hannity keeps making excuses.

    Just a bunch of #laughingstocks they have become.

  3. I wonder if Megyn was thinking to herself, “Who’s the b*tch now, Donald?” Bright move skipping the debate because he had a sad.

    • What a difference a day makes.

      Monday morning on Morning Joe the cool kids waxed rhapsodic over their opportunity to cover the Iowa Caucus.

      It was their Christmas Eve, Joe said. The stuff that brings fire to the eyes of these establishment-but-edgy intellectuals, unlike plebeian souls such as you and me…and Iowans…

      Today? Well…not so much. Today we learned that this is just the Iowa Caucus and it means not a whittle…not a twiddle…nothing…a vapor…poof…

      • Good analysis.
        This morning the body language was telling. Sat there with arms crossed and didn’t have any of his usual profundity. I didn’t have it on long. Too early for such drivel.

  4. Today’s most popular links:
    5 huge Factor fan
    4 exposé
    3 Five take-aways
    2 Selina Scott
    And the most popular link in today’s links…
    1 (CNN promotes Fox exposé with) fabricated Megyn Kelly quote.

  5. Mr. Bill and Charles Krauthammer seemed to echo the sentiment of many (including me) by predicting/suggesting Bernie Sanders has no chance.

    This contradicts Western Illinois University’s mock presidential election where “they have predicted every presidential election since 1975 with 100% accuracy.”

    Caveat: The prediction was made back in early November. But with Sanders’ performance in Iowa some could argue that this only strengthens their case.

    A sportsbook in Dublin currently has Sanders odds at 7/2 to win the nomination and Hillary at 1/5.

    • Of course he has no chance. The DNC has rigged it. You only need to look at the farce in Iowa. Six out of six on coin flips? Yeah, and I’m a mallard duck. They kept holding back precincts until they saw how many votes were needed. Lyndon Johnson and Richard J. Daley would be proud.
      The only way that Herself will be denied the nomination is if she is indicted. Wait, even then the DNC and Wassermann-Test will push her along.

      • I suppose the good news is we wont have to wait long.

        We should know a lot more about Sanders vs. Clinton by a month from today — the morning after Super Tuesday — when 14 states plus American Samoa weigh in.
