Republicans are trying to put together all of the country's current problems -- illegal immigration, Islamic radicalism, the Ebola virus -- into one big anti-Obama package. The campaign may work. Why?
Like it or not, Guantanamo will be with us for a long time -- or, at the very least, until Obama marches with his successor down Pennsylvania Avenue during the 2016 inauguration.
Republicans have made questions of how safe we are -- from disease, terrorism or something unspoken and perhaps more ominous -- central in their attacks against Democrats. But this is nothing new.
Halloween, with its blood and gore, witches and werewolves, is a children's holiday because its horrors are fictional. Republicans have picked up on that theme for their Halloween fear-mongering. Fabricating characters and events to induce terror is just part of the GOP-Halloween scheme.
No one will ever perfect the game. Nor will wounded soldiers ever be exactly the same. Yet they are progressing, hole by hole.
As ISIS raced through Western Iraq, cutting through Kurdish villages and Sunni enclaves with rapid speed, the United States reacted with shock. How could the Iraqi Army give up resistance so rapidly? Why weren't locals fighting back?
With the closing of 13 abortion clinics in Texas, one out of six Texas women seeking an abortion will have to travel 150 miles or more. But one out of six? That's only a small fraction, according to the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit.
Thanks to Matt Kemp and his beautiful, empathetic swing, we still have the Dodgers. At least for another day or two. Let's see what the Gods have in store for them in Game 3 in St. Louis Monday. Hold your breath, LA, it might be another lesson in... humility.

As Roberts desperately struggles to cling to office, he is trying to hoodwink the voters one more time. He never expected that the fact he doesn't have a Kansas home would be exposed. But he's been misleading about more than his address for years.
The storyline has long been that Hart challenged the press to follow him around and, in the post-Watergate spirit of enterprising investigative journalism, the press did just that, fearlessly uncovering, well, er, what?
How fast we've moved from peace to war, from hope to despair. Of course, like so many reports about U.S. military action, there was no mention of civilian casualties or other "collateral damage."
Here is a nation they maligned so much a decade ago which now is doing for President Obama what it refused to do for Bush -- join in what neocons like to do best: bomb, bomb, bomb. Should the neocons be grateful to the French?

Here are five things to consider as we discuss this latest insertion of US military personnel, money, and weaponry into, potentially, another Mideast quagmire -- this one being pitched as the "good" or "justified" Iraq War.
