Valentine's Day is right around the corner, which is hard to believe considering half of you reading this probably still have your Christmas trees up....
Talk is cheap when it comes to campaign finance issues and Mitt Romney's past statements have not always squared with the lofty ideals he espoused during the interview. These are some follow-up questions Chris Wallace might have asked. And, just for fun, Romney's hypothetical answers.
I met Mike Wallace only once, many years ago, but I'd like to think I actually got to know him in the two hours we spoke.
The HBO film Game Change certainly portrays former vice presidential candidate and conservative firebrand Sarah Palin as ignorant, arrogant, erratic, impetuous and narcissistic. But the real villain in this saga is Sen. John McCain.
The Crazy Party took a step closer to nominating a presidential candidate who makes even moderate Republicans' skin crawl.
Before we start re-thinking what our lying eyes have told us about Fox all along, before we begin erasing the quotes of skepticism from "fair and balanced" or, conversely, writing Fox's obituary, let's look at what really happened Thursday night.
Good news for Obama. He officially won Thursday night's Republican debate and he didn't even have to show up. Despite all the criticism coming at him from all sides, not one GOP hopeful was able to present him or herself as a viable alternative for 2012.
There's been lots of commentary about Chris Wallace's interview with Jon Stewart. In a sane world, we wouldn't need to have this conversation. That FOX is a relentless propaganda machine ought to be too banal to even have to note.

I'm convinced that there's something pathological to Gingrich's lying and delusional perceptions of self. He's ruthless and cunning and devoid of reality.
On the anniversary of Biggie Smalls' death, I find myself thinking about the rapper as a cultural hero. Hip-hop, after all, is our dominant culture -- it socializes us, and teaches us about life.
At the Good Men Project Magazine, we want to believe that there are a few good men in politics. We need to believe it. So we spent the last few months looking for them.
Taxes. They don't like 'em. (Who does?) They've never liked 'em. But this time around, they've found a new reason not to like 'em. They breed uncertainty. Or so the Republicans keep telling us.
Saturday's rally was all about the weird theme that America's honor needs restoring, presumably because somebody's sullied it. But who?
