Moments ago on MSNBC, Andrea Mitchell reported that the HIllary Clinton camp was "in a meltdown as this race got closer and closer."



Liberal CNN pundit and former Barack Obama advisor Van Jones declared the 44th President of the United States the "coolest person ever born" during live Iowa caucus coverage on the network this evening.
 



Speaking for the establishment, MSNBC analyst Nicolle Wallace on Monday announced that D.C. political types have decided they can “live with a President Trump.” But not, apparently, a President Cruz. Wallace, who previously worked for the McCain/Palin ticket, derided, “Ted Cruz's lack of civility toward his colleagues....He was not a very collegial person.” 



On Friday's Real Time with Bill Maher, GOP presidential candidates Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz were both on the receiving end of HBO comedian Bill Maher's latest anti-conservative vitriol as he called Cruz a "creep" and a "practiced liar" while comparing Rubio's religious beliefs to those of the terrorist group ISIS.



Can you imagine what Cruz could get done if he were elected with a mandate to implement conservative ideas — the only antidote to the destructive path Obama has set us on? We've seen what we get with conservative lite, and it doesn't work.



On Thursday's New Day on CNN, during a discussion of whether GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz being born in Canada is responsible for hurting his Iowa poll numbers since last month, CNN co-anchor Chris Cuomo at one point gloated that the Texas Senator has been a "divider" who is being "hoisted on his own petard."



In the episode “Iowa,” CBS’ The Good Wife continued its pursuit of painting Hillary Clinton as the inevitable Democratic presidential candidate. On the eve of the Iowa Caucus, the Florrick family and advisers are on the campaign bus debating the pros and cons of doing a “Full Grassley.” (A Full Grassley means stopping in all of Iowa’s counties during a campaign cycle and is named after Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley). 



ABC News’s senior national correspondent Cecilia Vega continued her cheerleading for Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton on Tuesday’s World News Tonight as she gushed that Clinton is working to win over voters “one handshake, one chai at a time” (in reference to her order of a chai tea at an Iowa coffee shop).



While Beltway insiders think Hillary Clinton has the Democratic presidential nomination all squared away, some have tried to build a buzz arond former Maryland Governor Martin O'Malley as a challenger.

In Iowa, a college newspaper tried to sell O'Malley as a "new JFK." Don't they do that a lot with Democrats?



Speaking at Drake University in Iowa on Thursday, Vice President Joe Biden was running through a list of dignitaries that were there for his remarks and referred to former Iowa Democratic Representative Neal Smith as his “old butt buddy” and told Smith that “I miss you man.” On Thursday night, the major networks ignored the story and didn’t even one of its lighthearted news briefs to it (as the networks often do in the second half of their programs).



In his February 9 story on MSNBC's The Reid Report headlined "Counted Out," network correspondent Zachary Roth offered viewers a misleading look at the plight of an Iowa woman who "had been charged with illegal voting." In point of fact, the woman in question, an ex-felon named Kelli Jo Griffin, was prosecuted for committing perjury by lying about her disqualification on a voter registration form.



"Voting Under Attack" blares the teaser headline for a new Zachary Roth piece at MSNBC.com looking at efforts in five states to pass new voter ID laws.
