American evangelicals, Fox News, and now the Republican Party take their intellectual cues from a roster of remarkably similar populists who head media empires.
It was easier during World War II. You knew who your enemies were--Hitler, Tojo, the Red Skull. And you knew who your allies were, too--Churchill, Stalin, the Submariner.
If conservatives don't like labor unions, they are entitled to their opinions. But when they attack unions by arguing that they actually hurt working people, they don't have the facts on their side. They are crying wolf.
For an entity that wields so much power, we know relatively little about the Fed. Would you trust an unknown banker to decide what happens with your paycheck every week? Why do we accept this for our country?
Rand's total rejection of faith and God is anathema to Christians. Forcing this discussion and calling GOP leaders who praise her on what she actually taught would sew deep discord in GOP circles.
Do you remember what you were doing, saying or writing while President Obama was planning this mission? Donald Trump, for one, was claiming that Obama might not be a real American.

On Tax Day 2010, we witnessed what was probably the apex of the Tea Party movement. What a difference a year makes.

Radio callers more than bloggers and any participant in visual media thrive on anonymity. But this has led to a reality where it's unknown how much is fabricated in order to fit a certain agenda, be it political or merely to entertain.
Mr. Beck, I understand it is your contention that "only hookers go to Planned Parenthood." There must be a lot of hookers out here.
The simultaneous rise and fall of Beck and Palin stand as remarkable tales of Fox News failures, as well as for the radical, Obama-hating media movement they've helped champion on cable TV.
Neither Fox News nor Beck are saying exactly why the two decided to break up this week. But a simple lesson in TV Economics 101 would probably explain it.
You'll probably hear a lot about how Beck coarsened the political debate, but I think the wreckage is a lot more substantive, to actual policies that affect Americans every day.
The bill forbids Americans from putting themselves in the shoes of the less fortunate, because, as the former Senator noted, "putting oneself in another's shoes is tantamount to theft."
Beck's lack of advertisers made him a financial liability for Fox, and it's clear that this was a driving factor in his departure from Fox. This is an incredible and unprecedented victory.
