What happens if you are a candidate for governor and you lose badly? Not just a mere bad loss but one of historically bad proportions following an absolutely horrible campaign marked by the cowardice of shying from previously well known positions. Well, if you are a liberal it could mean you can score a TV show based on the aftermath of your loss. Such is the case with Wendy Davis. The "Abortion Barbie" of Texas who mostly avoided that for which she was best known is the inspiration a "Dramedy" show based on life after going down to complete defeat after refusing to stand up for what she really believed during her gubernatorial campaign.  Deadline Hollywood describes the NBC show based on the cowardly campaigner:

Conservative icon Phyllis Schlafly on Thursday accepted the “William F. Buckley Jr. Award for Media Excellence” at the 2015 Media Research Center Gala and DisHonors Awards. MRC President Brent Bozell lauded the profound and ongoing role Schlafly has in the conservative movement.

Drew Magary is a regular columnist at

Apparently Magary, his editors and the publication's management have forgotten or don't care about what the "G" in GQ is supposed to stand for. Both the headline and the content of the writer's latest column flunk the "gentlemen's" test.

Who is taking more glee from the current Republican turmoil over the selection of the next Speaker: Democrats or the MSM—or do I repeat myself?

Today's Morning Joe featured a clip from Andrea Mitchell's interview of Ben Carson in which she asked: "what does this just say about the Republican brand and the Republican party. Can it survive after this kind of chaos?" Wishful thinking, Andrea?

Conservative comedian and talk show host Joe Piscopo brought the laughter to Thursday night’s 2015 Media Research Center Gala and DisHonors Awards.  While the rest of the dinner hammered the liberal media, “The Funnies” were a compilation of the year’s most humorous clips, as complied by the MRC.

Despite the implied nudity in the show’s opening scene, this episode, "I Choose You," of Grey's Anatomy actually earns a pat on the back for proving that Hollywood writers get it right every now and then. What caught my attention is that this episode explains true feminism quite well. Instead of victimhood being promoted as Meredith realizes she is being offered less money for her new position as Chief of General than she rightfully should expect, Dr. Bailey (Chandra Wilson) teaches that women, as well as men, have to stand up and ask for what is wanted. “She needs to fight for herself.”

How to Get Away with Murder is back at it again, going over the top with sex stuff. The whole episode was dedicated to sex, even the title of the episode is a reference to a sex act – “It’s Called The Octopus.” As the show creator Pete Nowalk said, “Sex is part of the framework of the show.” The client of the week for defense attorney Annalise (Viola Davis) and her law students is a woman charged with murder because a man had a heart attack and died while having sex with her at a sex club she owns.

In my extremely limited time watching FX’s American Horror Story I’ve learned one thing, and that’s that the apparent goal of the new season, titled American Horror Story: Hotel, is to make me the most uncomfortable I have ever been watching a TV show. And it’s working.

As CNN's John King made appearances on the news network on Thursday to discuss the race to replace House Speaker John Boehner, the CNN correspondent suggested that conservative Tea Party members lack understanding of Civics 101 in trying to press their agenda in the House. In a later appearance, after the announcement that Rep. Kevin McCarthy was dropping out of the race, King used the words "hostage crisis" to describe the situation.

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- A raucous crowd of 900 attendees at Thursday night's 2015 Media Research Center Gala and DisHonors Awards dinner gave the dubious honor of Quote of the Year to NBC's Ayman Mohyeldin for this gem in which he trashed late U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle as having gone on "killing sprees" during his tours of duty.

Yeah, I'm sure it was the first thing many people thought upon learning the horrific news of the mass shooting at Umpqua Community College in Oregon -- there goes another Republican.

More accurately, it was the first thing fervently wished in the fever swamps of the left, one of which is inhabitated by Alan Colmes, formerly the lesser half of Hannity & Colmes, now opining over at his own show on Fox News Radio.

With Republican Ben Carson rising in the presidential polls, liberals have been searching for a way to bring down the former neurosurgeon, and Trevor Noah -- the new host of The Daily Show on the cable television Comedy Channel -- tried his best on Wednesday night by claiming that having hostages attack gunmen so fewer people get shot is “crazy.”

“The GOP race is heating up,” Noah began. “Donald Trump is still in the lead with 25 percent in the polls, but right behind him … and graining ground ... is this man:” Carson, who said in a clip that “I'm very concerned about the future of our children. Of course, you know, I prepare every day, and I'm learning more things every day.”

It seems more than fair to say that establishment press coverage of the deteriorating situation in Syria has been much lighter than what we'd see if a Republican or conservatives was in the Oval Office. Additionally, what has been reported in the admittedly complicated situation has been confusing at best and misleading at worst.

There was a moment of disconcerting clarity today which, if reported, should disturb even those Americans who only have a vague understanding of what's going on in that country. As reported by Tim Mak and Nancy A. Youssef at The Daily Beast:

Rumors swirled that ABC's Blackish would take this week off from extremely controversial political issues to instead deal with the common, everyday issue of people dealing with their parents getting older and needing to go see the doctor. Instead, they found a way to turn a simple trip to the doctor into a commentary on mid-20th century medical racism.

Did you know that the "The Gun Lobby Rewrote the Second Amendment"?

No, really. Even though not a single word contained in that amendment has changed in over 220 years, you should believe it because former Obama administration official Cass Sunstein said so at Bloomberg View on Wednesday.
