There are two rabbinic assessments of the state of the Israelites at the time of the Exodus.
Republican's believe in small government, right? Republican presidential candidates usually want to eliminate three or more cabinet departments and sometimes they can even remember the names of the three they want eliminated.
If you're a rightward-leaning white American, whether or not you harbor racial resentment is a powerful predictor of whether you support Donald Trump. Or, to put it more simply, Trump attracts white racists.
Sure, it's funny -- when you first consider it. But then the more you think about it, the more sense it actually makes. After all, is "Trump/Ventura 2016" really that much more outlandish than "Donald Trump, Republican presidential nominee" first sounded?
The big White House grandfather clock, or the iPhone depending on how President Obama keeps track of time, is ticking down on the commander-in-chief's final year in office. And speculation abounds over the items on his to-do list.

Never go into a media interview without doing your homework. You should be clear about who the interviewer is and where he or she is coming from.
Is there any doubt about the existence of a war on Christmas? There shouldn't be. It's been going on for years. But I don't mean the one that's been the obsession of guys like Bill O'Reilly.
It's that time of year, again... Shame on you, you seculars! You're the ones who've declared war on Christmas! You're the ones who've ripped the Nativities out of our town squares!
For anyone who's been watching the Fox News coverage since Friday and seen the almost non-stop smear campaign against Obama (it's been part of the larger, right-wing media freakout), it's almost unimaginable what the Fox commentary would sound like if ISIS killed hundreds in America during next year's campaign.
