Well, that was entertaining, wasn't it? We refer, of course, to the grand spectacle of the first Republican presidential debates, held last night on Fox News. Since this is all anyone's talking about in the political world today, we are going to follow suit and devote most of this column to our reactions.
There are some faith leaders within Christianity who vocally and openly criticize what they see as the problems with the arguments made on behalf of a pro-life position based on one's faith.
It is hard to believe that the roster of 10 men could land such a despicable debate. It is a shame for them, and a shame for their party. I congratulate the moderators on having found enough substance in their questions.
11. "When you find mush, you push" is a belief shared by both Scott Walker and Vladimir Putin, but it's not nearly as grossly sexual as you're thinkin...

Our understanding of various diseases resulting in dementia, blindness, or other disabilities has expanded in part because of research done on donated fetal tissue.
Elbowing for the bottom rung has been fierce, but there's plenty of material on those we know will be on the podium. Whether you tune in to the Republican debate or not, know this: No matter who wins, women lose.
