history and search for a direction to a better future for our country. The choice is clear, and it is ours. We cannot continue down this dead end road to economic ruin.
The 2016 Republican presidential contest has barely begun and it has already grown alternately tiresome and old or just downright scary. As a Democrat, I might be pleased, but as an American, I am deeply troubled. I just want it to end.
One can argue whether President George W. Bush and President Barak Obama's policies are wrong or foolish, but you can't argue the fact that both men exhibited the characteristics of patience during times of crisis or confrontation. Can we say the same thing about Ted Cruz?
"We're gonna knock your socks off, America!" said Sarah Palin, as she signed napkins for customers at the Lock 'N Load Dinner in Wasilla, Alaska. ...
Republicans cheered the Citizens United ruling in 2010. Now they have it to thank for the spectacle of Ted Cruz calling Mitch McConnell a liar on the floor of the Senate and Donald Trump leading in the polls.
Donald Trump is just flyin' up those polls! Such an unexpected surprise and I couldn't be happier. We need more hate and nastiness in our elections to keep people honest...he'll be a great president.
The very concept has moved from the surreal to the possible. So it's time to actually think about what it would mean for the country and for the Republican Party.
What if everything Donald Trump was doing or saying in his "serious" bid for the presidency was just a ruse? What if's just a brilliant, cunning scheme, as a closeted Democrat, to ensure the election of Hillary Clinton in 2016?
Clinton's leadership on clean energy and climate action stands in stark contrast to the entire field of GOP presidential candidates. Only two Republican hopefuls acknowledge the science of climate change.
Let's face it. The Republicans will have quite a time trying to sift through their thicket of candidates. So many angles and issues and characters to consider. Do I like the clean-cut union-busting Wisconsin governor or the clean-cut anti-choice former Senator from Pennsylvania?
Tthe point of the GOP's Hillary email obsession is the same as its pound of her for her alleged missteps and conniving on Benghazi. That is to embarrass and discredit her as a 2016 presidential candidate. The contrived email and Benghazi flap fit neatly into the GOP's now chosen point of attack on her.

While it may be accurate to say that a majority of the American public has "moved on" with regard to marriage equality, that's not true among the base of the GOP. And, more critically, the majority of Americans in general hasn't "moved on" when it comes to "religious liberty" vs. "gay rights," not by a long shot.
Today, the Earth got a little hotter, and a little more crowded. Broken computers and wildflowers are making this week's column late, short, but swee...
Clearly all of my received wisdom from a lifetime of reality and cinema was wrong. Because Donald Trump has decided that John McCain is no war hero for having spent five and a half years as a tortured guest of the North Vietnamese.
Dear Governor Walker: I'm appalled by your willingness to trade off the well-being of working people and the health of a fabulous state university system for your grandiose, selfish ambition. I'll do whatever I can to make sure you will not become president.
