Jon Stewart reminded us that while democracy (and life) is funny, it can also be intermittently devastating, and leave the pausing complex thinkers eating the tyranny of inanities left by the panting race of power-obsessed double-dealers.
I am the best. This is true because I said so. Even the sentences I write are the best except perhaps for the last one, which a teacher told me ended in a preposition, yet if I construct a sentence then whatever words I use are the best, because I said so.
We have been witnessing the most biased reporting of any election I have ever seen. This isn't only about FOX news spouting lies and bringing racists on to attack President Obama. This is about the media apparently doing all it can to bring down Hillary Clinton.
Now is the time for Democrats to rally and speak in unison about the economic performance under this president, something Republicans orchestrate so well. While not stellar and considering we were on the brink of collapse, Obama's economic performance is praiseworthy.
When Ted Cruz dismissed Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly's questions to him on immigration as something a "liberal journalist" would ask, the right-wing Media Research Center applauded it. After all, that evasion tactic is straight from the MRC playbook.
In polite circles men that behave in this manner to women are shunned. So why is this behavior okay with some women? Am I missing something? Why are women allowing Trump to define them in this way? Is this the new normal?
If the state-level Republicans do decide to create loyalty oaths in a naked bid to keep Donald Trump off their primary ballots, his supporters are going to be enraged.
What William F. Buckley and Gore Vidal did for discourse in America was unprecedented. They proved there was a time not so long ago we relished hearing both sides of political arguments. And there is a time -- call it the present -- when a hunger for authenticity seems to be driving both parties in unexpected directions.
I am beginning to feel sorry for Donald Trump. He has money, fame, power and supporters -- but apparently no real friends. There's truth in that old cliché, "It's lonely at the top." Now it appears that the folks at Fox News are unfriending the Donald.
The first Fox News Republican Party Presidential debates are over. Not surprisingly Donald Trump entertained and insulted. The supporting cast for his new apprentice show mostly hung out in the background.
How low can you go disparaging a great humanitarian, a faithful pastor and former President as he is dying of cancer because he did not come out against gay marriage? Not a Christian? Are you kidding me?
FOX and the Republican elites have been playing the long game in the shadows. They thought they had their men in Mitt Romney and Jeb Bush. What they didn't foresee was a celebrity billionaire with nothing to lose. Trump was also playing the long-game except right out in the open for all to see. And he is the one who might very well succeed.
GOP presidential candidates are now calling for a repeal of the 14th Amendment to the Constitution, for being unconstitutional. OK. But let's say there never was a 14th Amendment. Would Donald Trump be a U.S. citizen today? Maybe, but maybe not.
Fox 'News' finally finds reason to 'care' about the environment; Hillary Clinton draws a bright green line around Arctic drilling; EPA tells oil and gas industry to cut the methane; and Islamic leaders call on Muslims worldwide.
Donald Trump keeps on saying stupid, hateful things. About Mexicans, women, John McCain, Megyn Kelly... And he keeps on leading the Republican presidential race. Gosh, could there be a correlation?
There should be three-word questions followed by, at most, three word answers. Only after the primaries are completed and a candidate chosen, can he or she share viewpoints in greater detail. In fact, let's start with a do over of the Cleveland beauty pageant, er, debate.
