Favorite Headlines from the Campaign Trail


“John Kasich Came in Fourth In A Three-Man Race Last Night” [RedState]

“Kasich Lost to Rubio’s Ghost in Arizona” [CNN]

Explanation: Many votes in the Arizona primary were cast early, before the Florida primary concluded and before Rubio suspended his campaign.

“At Least Two of Five Women Deny National Enquirer Claims” [Ted Cruz News]

Yes, the Cruz campaign actually sent out a news release with this headline. One must suppose that if three of the five women had definitively denied the claims, the headline would have been followed by an exclamation point.

“Mexicans Burn Donald Trump Effigies in Easter Ritual” [Business Insider]

This is how religions are born.

About martinkich

I am a Professor of English at Wright State University's Lake Campus, where I have been a faculty member for more than 25 years. I have now served multiple terms as the President of the WSU chapter of AAUP, which now includes all full-time instructional faculty, and as the Vice-President of the Ohio Conference of AAUP. I have also served several terms as an at-large member of the Executive Committee of AAUP's Collective Bargaining Congress. In addition to serving as co-editor of the Academe blog, I am also a member of the editorial board of Academe and have been a guest editor for an issue of the magazine on collective bargaining strategies. As co-chair of the Ohio Conference's Communication Committee, I began to do much more overtly political writing during the campaign to repeal Ohio's Senate Bill 5, which would have eliminated the right of faculty to be unionized. I have sustained that activism, and at the risk of stating the obvious, I have very much enjoyed contributing to the Academe Blog and to our chapter blog. I also maintain several other blogs to which I have re-posted, by topic, my posts to the Academe blog, as well as some other items.
