George Will Trashes Bill O'Reilly: 'Wise, He Is Not'

Washington Post | Whitney Snyder | Posted 11.10.2015 | Media

Were the lungs the seat of wisdom, Fox News host Bill O’Reilly would be wise, but they are not and he is not. So it is not astonishing that he ...

You Can Keep Cutting Taxes, If You Want to Pay the Price

Llewellyn King | Posted 11.02.2015 | Politics

When I hear tax-cutting expounded as an unassailable conservative virtue, my mind goes back to a lunch in Houston in the 1970s, when two of conservatism's rising stars and I were speakers at a meeting of the American Petroleum Institute.

Max J. Skidmore

Will condemns Bernie Sanders, in particular, and the Democratic Party, in general, for believing that "economic inequality is an urgent problem," and for believing that "its urgency should be understood in terms of huge disparities of wealth."

What George Will Doesn't Understand About Bernie Sanders

George Will is just one of the first in what will surely become a long line of fear mongering opportunists taking advantage of the ignorance of the American public and what amounts to a harmless confusion of ideological names.

Trump These Thoughts

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.

Trump Takes on the World

John Feffer | Posted 08.20.2015 | Entertainment
John Feffer

It's worth taking a look at Donald Trump's foreign policy, even if the exercise seems somewhat ludicrous, like analyzing Kim Kardashian's take on macroeconomics or Eminem's analysis of abstract expressionism.

Watershed Moment on Race? And: Is Trump a Farce or Face of GOP Base?

Mark Green


After cop videos, #blacklivesmatter, Charleston massacre/eulogy/flag -- oh, and a Black president -- Matalin and LaMarche debate if we're starting the biggest conversation on race since the Kerner Commission. Also, who will be the bloviating blond's Joe Welch or are Trump and GOP nativist base inseparable?

Why Campus Sustainability Works: An Open Letter to George Will

In its simplest form, sustainability means greater efficiency and cutting waste to preserve both the natural environment and money. This is not a leftist agenda, but an alignment with both conservative and liberal values.

Hebdo's Dubious PEN-Pals: Privileged Conservative Pundits

History offers D.H. Lawrence's warning that influential people shouldn't stimulate others' "personal, superficial, temporary desires" but "tell us of our own deeper desires." The powers that conservatives champion have been doing the former, with increasing velocity.

A Hard Look at the Big Blue Wall

Chris Weigant

The true magnitude of the problem for the Republican Party only becomes apparent when you compare the big blue wall to what might be called the "small red picket fence" of the consistent Republican-voting states.

George Will's 'Firing Offense' at Fox

Paul Abrams | Posted 06.06.2015 | Media
Paul Abrams

On rare occasions when professional right-wingers let down their ideological guards, however, they can slip into revealing the truth. But, George Will has sinned on that most sacred of right-wing catechisms, government spending. From that, there can be no reprieve.

George Will vs. Climate History

Curt Stager | Posted 03.22.2015 | Green
Curt Stager

As I explained in Deep Future: The Next 100,000 Years of Life on Earth, the message from the geological past is not "big deal, appalling climate disasters have happened before." Climate science tells us that we don't want to go through equally appalling disruptions of our own making, and also that we don't necessarily have to.

The Myth of Crying Rape

Jim Wallis | Posted 02.18.2015 | Crime
Jim Wallis

Rape culture is living in a society in which your story is dissected rather than heard; it's being told your inherent, God-given value begins to disintegrate once your story gets uncomfortable and its trajectory skewed.

Threats to Women's Health Are Real and Voters Know It

Dawn Laguens | Posted 12.23.2014 | Politics
Dawn Laguens

The danger in writing around facts like George Will does in his column about Gardner is that he misinforms voters about the real threats facing abortion access. If allowed to stand unchallenged, his column could do lasting damage.

Football in Madison creates a shared connection between generations that began for me on the plane ride from LaGuardia airport and continued as I checked in to my hotel.

Videocracy - Filmed Violence That Galvanizes Opinion and Policy (See ISIS and Women)

HuffPost Radio | Posted 09.14.2014 | Politics
HuffPost Radio


Katrina and Lowry debate whether a) beheadings and media war whoops forced Obama's hand; b) he gets a boost or blame in November; c) he'll escalate if Bombs-without-Boots fails. What now happens to his desired pivot to Asia, climate, inequality? Ray Rice too is tackled by tape. Is a video worth a million words?

Try Governing for a Change

Sen. Barbara Boxer | Posted 10.05.2014 | Politics
Sen. Barbara Boxer

On issue after issue facing our country, this is a Republican Party so obsessed with blocking the president -- and now suing the president -- that it has abdicated its most basic responsibility to govern.

It's time for our institutions to scrap their crisis communication plans when it comes to violence against women, and replace them with real plans to protect victims and hold perpetrators accountable.

George Will to Child Migrants: 'Welcome to America

Marco Cáceres | Posted 09.28.2014 | Politics
Marco Cáceres

The issue of what to do with the tens of thousands of child migrants from Central America is a complex one to answer. A much easier question to answer is, "Would you deport these kids knowing that there's a good chance they would be hurt or killed within days or weeks of their return?"
