On a side note...............Prager is either very uninformed or else very dishonest. During yesterday's show , he went on a major rant about how the Mayor of Houston had, apparently in order to quash any political opposition, issued subpoenas to various churches in order to get transcripts of their sermons. Prager went on and on about how chilling this was, how this scared him much more than Ebola, etc etc. When I was hearing it, it just did NOT ring true at all. I knew there HAD to be more to the story than what prager was letting on to. I found it all but impossible to believe that, strictly for political purposes, the mayor of one of the largest U.S. cities would be harassing churches in that manner. As it turns out, Prager was, in effect, lying to everyone. The churches in question are part of a group called ADF............and THEY started the ball rolling BY FILING A LAWSUIT AGAINST THE CITY (pertaining to the implementation of anti-discriminatory laws). It's perfectly within their legal rights to file such a lawsuit......but....when any matter does go into litigation it is also perfectly legal for the defendant (in this case, the city of Houston) to obtain material info via subpoena as part of their defense. I won't hold my breath for Prager to issue a "correction" on this story.

Good message...just turn your brain and your "moral compass" off and vote for WHATEVER candidate is put forward by your party. Who cares if the person is shockingly corrupt and/or incompetent........it's party first! It's exactly this type of thinking that has led to the mess we're in in terms of the senate and congress. And, FWIW, I think that Prager's line of thinking is morally bankrupt regardless of which party you favor. Why the people in NY continue to re-elect the corrupt, buffoonish Charlie Rangle (a Dem) is beyond me.

Enrique..........that IS classic Prager. I would also add that, since, in the end, Iraq has turned into what many people had feared it was going to be from the start of the war, at least we no longer have to hear Prager crowing about how "the left" was wrong about the miraculous results of the surge. And, in addition, we don't have to hear his mockery of Biden in terms of the one state system not being workable in Iraq.

Michael..............wow, does that idiotic phrase go back that far? I thought it might have been a Rush Limbaugh creation.

Soreress...........you might have the emotional belief that there is "nothing democratic about it", but the fact remains that the actual name of the party is the "Democratic Party". That's a fact. I've never understood why people refer to it as "the democrat party" even though doing so makes them sound like a hillbilly with a 3rd grade education. I'm glad that the Dems don't somehow think it's clever or useful to refer to their opposition as "The Republic party".

"Why doesn't every GOP candidate remind voters that the Democratic party supported the complete withdrawal of U.S. troops from Iraq----and that this made the Islamic state possible"...............yeah, why don't they try to peddle that garbage to the American people? The answer is because the American people aren't stupid enough to fall for it. They KNOW that the whole Iraq fiasco was the doing of Bush-Cheney. It was known going in that, if it turned to krap, it was on THEM. So, 11 years later and at the cost of over 1 trillion dollars and 4000 of our troops, Prager is insisting that the mistake was in LEAVING. Of course, the fact that BUSH had signed the withdrawal agreement (one of the few wise moves he did make) is never mentioned. Bring up ANY portion of the Iraq war at your own peril, GOP. This was YOUR baby. Just like The ACA is Obama's baby.....if that ever turns to krap and there actually are, for example, death panels, this would definitely be on Obama, not on whoever follows him into office.

Why..............if you're going to make points like that you might want to do so without insulting the person because when you call someone else stupid when YOU'RE 100% wrong you don't come across all that well. (1) "First, we already had Medicare for all genius".......REALLY? Well that's certainly news to everyone under age 65 who was NOT (and still is not) covered under Medicare. (2) "how on this planet does anyone...think that what we had shoved down our throats is even remotely a Republican model". Instead of spending your time insulting the person, you might be better off doing a quick Google search for "Romney Health Insurance plan + Massachusetts".

One additional comment........to those who have good memories, they'll recall that, during the 2012 GOP Pres campaign, Gingrich spent a TON of $$ on ads calling Romney a "Massachusetts Moderate". Obviously, a well paid campaign staff put a lot of time and expense into that strategy, with the belief or understanding that this would effect the normal GOP voter. In the Dem party, though, other than for a very small % of people, being called a "moderate" is NOT a bad thing. I can pretty much guarantee that, during the 2008 campaign, H.Clinton and B. Obama were NOT spending $$$ running ads calling the other a "moderate".......simply because being a moderate is NOT a bad thing to the rank and file members of the Dem Party.
