Thank you, Digital Revolution. You've given us many benefits, to be sure, but now this. We are living, apparently, at the mercy of people with the manners of a chimpanzee and the tongue of a Sicilian fishwife.
As conservatives prepare for an urgent meeting this weekend to discuss their options in the 2012 campaign, they face an epic crisis of identity and el...
Regardless of the high profile their social media use has resulted in, the Huntsman women cannot be blamed for the odd types of scrutiny that have come their way.

Defense Department correspondents and commentators did not have to read between the lines much to pass on the twin message that our armed forces will be managed in a leaner fashion and with a decided tilt strategically toward countering threats in Asia.
