Trump Sanders

Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders have won the New Hampshire primaries, with Trump taking 35% of the vote and Sanders 60%.

Cruz Trumps The Donald In Iowa


The results of the Iowa caucus are in and Donald Trump has finished second place, securing only 24% of the vote compared to Texas Senator Ted Cruz’s 28%. Perhaps more worryingly for the Donald he was almost knocked into third place by Marco Rubio who went home with 23% of the vote.

Tina Fey Endorses Trump

Inevitably Saturday Night Live had Tina Fey reprise her Sarah Palin…

Palin: “Are You Ready to Make America Great Again?”

“I want you to try to picture this, it’s a nice thing to picture. Exactly one year from tomorrow, former President Barack Obama. He packs up the teleprompters and the selfie-sticks, and the Greek columns, and all that hopey, changey stuff and he heads on back to Chicago, where I’m sure he can find some community there to organize again. There, he can finally look up, President Obama will be able to look up, and there, over his head, he’ll be able to see that shining, towering, Trump tower. Yes, Barack, he built that, and that says a lot. Iowa, you say a lot, being here tonight, supporting the right man who will allow you to make America great again. God bless you! God bless the United States of America and our next president of the United States, Donald J. Trump!”

A tough night for Rand Paul at the Fox News Republican presidential debate, though he was punchy in this fiery exchange with Chris Christie on mass surveillance and the NSA:

Progressive Hillary: “Marriage is Between a Man and a Woman”

Hillary Clinton 2004:

“I believe marriage is not just a bond but a sacred bond between a man and a woman …the fundamental bedrock principle that [marriage] exists between a man and a woman, going back into the midst of history as one of the founding, foundational institutions of history and humanity and civilization, and that its primary, principal role during those millennia has been the raising and socializing of children for the society into which they are to become adults.”
