The rain of ridiculous ravings from America's political right continued unabated as spring took hold. Let's look at a few examples.
I had a college degree, but suddenly I had no car, no income and few alternatives. To keep our family going, I was forced onto welfare and relied on food stamps to keep food on the table. In the blink of an eye, my aspirations for achieving a middle-class life for my family were shattered.
On conservative KNUS radio last week, GOP Senate candidate Cory Gardner assured listeners that he remains "pro-life" even though he recently un-endors...
If we want our country to be guided by traditional Republican principles, we need to keep government out of the personal health care decisions of women and their families.
Obviously, Plunkett didn't rob Kurtis Lee of a Pulitzer by deleting his blog post from The Post's website. It wasn't an earth-shattering piece, but it advanced, in its small way, an issue that's important to a lot of real people as well as political elites.
Popular political speech needs no protection from the First Amendment -- it never has. It is unpopular political speech -- even downright lies -- which need defending by the courts. As ignoble and as impure as that may sound.

Does viral, vulnerable personal content challenge cultural stigmas or does it exploit it?
As conservatives attempt to criminalize a broader range of actions in attempts to grant legal personhood to unborn children, and thus create a stronger argument against safe, legal abortion, a case in Mississippi is at center stage.
When Rep. Cory Gardner dumped his longstanding support of the Personhood amendment two weeks ago, reporters failed to tell us about Gardner's new posi...
As a country, we are failing in our efforts to include women in national and local politics while subjecting politicians to insufferable forms of sexism
We celebrate and thank social workers, this month and every day, for their work to ensure the rights of all people to make free and informed choices about their bodies and their lives.
I wrote a Shreveport Times column this week in an attempt to spark meaningful conversation about poverty and health care in Louisiana. What I never expected was that my column would become Dr. Fleming's springboard for announcing he has moderated his abortion access position.
