It will be interesting to see if this information is accurate, or even partially accurate, in the days ahead. I have no doubt that Chaffetz himself believes it, nor do I question his character. But we have seen him get all excited about some "information" on several occasions , only to have that inf...

[quote]Maybe, ten weeks left anything can happen.[/quote]
Seven weeks, but I agree even that seemingly short period of time can see many ups and downs in many of these races. Polls have seen roller-coaster type results from week to week, so it will depend on which candidates are "ebbing" and whic...

Snopes has weighed in as well:
"The reason this development isn't front-page news is that National Report is a "satire" site, posting outlandish and sensational claims that often quickly go viral on social media sites such as Facebook. A disclaimer on the site explains that no story published the...

Meanwhile, back in Benghazi today:

The inherent weakness of a caucus state is that only the hardcore enthusiasts for candidates show up. In that 2008 Iowa caucus, only 131k voter...
