In his usual hissy-fit style, Donald Trump announced Mike Pence as his running mate on Twitter as opposed to a press conference. It seems Trump was mad because his choice was leaked before he could get in front of the fawning media. – Read the full article
Washington “insider” Sally Quinn once said of Arizona Senator John McCain:

I don’t know if the GOP’s “professional” campaign managers decided to sit the 2016 election season out or what, but it sure seems like a bunch of amateurs running things this time around.

Surprise! “Evangelicals” are just plain old Republicans masquerading as Christians, and my friends, it seems the, ahem, “Godly” are embracing Donald Trump’s candidacy. Pastor Jeremiah Johnson had this to say:

Appearing on Fox “News” Sunday, Laura Ingraham was asked about Donald Trump’s lead in the polls. Her theory is: “20-30%” of Republicans are “so livid” at the GOP they’re backing Donald Trump because,
