Elementary Politics at Phoenix Comicon

February 27, 2017

The writers at Elementary Politics all have a lot of different obsessions. Some of us read books about the Revolutionary War like they’re going out of style, some of us read Supreme Court case briefs for fun, and others like to argue with people about foreign policy. The one thing we all have in common though… Read More ›

We need something to save us from bad executives in general…

Okay, so we’ve been quiet for a while. We thought that in an era where two terrible candidates are taking up all the oxygen in the room each trying to convince you that the other one was worse, neither having anything resembling a legitimate plan (and what plans they do have are terrible), that it… Read More ›

Feminism Classic

In the 1980s the Coca-Cola company made a gigantic mistake. That mistake was known as New Coke. It was so unpopular that it took less than 3 months for the company to reintroduce the original product, only under the name “Coca-Cola Classic” because the name “Coca-Cola” was already on every bit of New Coke advertising….

Text of Trumps acceptance speech with comments:

Friends, delegates and fellow Americans: I humbly and gratefully accept your nomination for the presidency of the United States. Who would have believed that when we started this journey on June 16, last year, we — I say we because we are a team — would have received almost 14 million votes, the most in… Read More ›

A Conservative Platform (the kind we won’t get)

So as there will be no conservative… Read More ›

Donald “I’ve never asked God for forgiveness, because I’ve never done anything wrong” Trump held a summit for evangelical conservative voters in New York on Tuesday.   Trump was joined and given endorsements by several prominent members of the Old Guard of the Christian Right– pastors Jerry Falwell, Jr. and Franklin Graham, activist Gary Bauer, and… Read More ›

A Letter to the GOP

Dear GOP, I’m breaking up with you!

10 things for Congress to do…because the next 4 years are probably going to suck no matter what

So Ted Cruz had one job: Stop Trump from getting 1237 delegates and allow the GOP to pick someone else (hopefully not Cruz either).  But Ted Cruz has a worse at bat record than Mighty Casey, and couldn’t even stay in long enough to prevent the fascist from getting the needed delegates. So what does… Read More ›

Mighty Teddy at Bat

The outlook wasn’t brilliant for the GOP  that day: The score stood 1047 to 565, with but nine states more to play, And then when Walker died at first, and Rubio did the same, A pall-like silence fell upon the voters of the nation.   A straggling few got up to go in deep despair…. Read More ›
