We see words of caution everywhere: "Do not drive with sunshield in place." "Do not use thermometer orally after using rectally." "Do not iron clothes on body." As I study manufacturers' warning labels, I sometimes wonder what geniuses are buying their products. In a similar vein, partisan elections reveal impaired judgment in political consumers.
In his victory speech Tuesday night after winning the Wisconsin primary, Senator Ted Cruz pointed to his endorsements from one-time GOP presidential candidates as proof that he has the "full spectrum of the Republican Party coming together and uniting behind this campaign."
The Republican presidential nomination race has previously devolved to the level of an elementary school playground (penis-measuring in a national debate), and has now risen to at least high school (if not a college frat house) with the vicious battle going on between Donald Trump and Ted Cruz over who can insult each other's wives the most.
One month after he ended his own presidential bid, Graham addressed the question of which GOP frontrunner he could support, in pretty graphic fashion: "If you nominate Trump and Cruz I think you get the same outcome. Whether it's death by being shot or poisoning, does it really matter?"
Sure, it's funny -- when you first consider it. But then the more you think about it, the more sense it actually makes. After all, is "Trump/Ventura 2016" really that much more outlandish than "Donald Trump, Republican presidential nominee" first sounded?
Will Trump Blow it? Trump's speech at AIPAC is about more than AIPAC, Jews and the Mideast: Is he a serious candidate? This morning Hillary Cl...
That will end, maybe by convention time, maybe in November, but it will. His candidacy will end. His brand will be forever damaged. His vast wealth not so impressive after all.
A counterpunch, but where was the punch? "I'm more of a counterpuncher," Donald Trump has said repeatedly. Nearly six months ago when more candidate...
Even with all the progress in medical cannabis access, regulations, and safety protocols in programs in the US and around the globe, the conflict between individual country laws and international treaties, particularly the UN Single Convention Treaty of 1961, continues to be an issue.
We had two Democratic debates and one Republican debate last week. The GOP one was shocking -- because nobody said anything shocking! Yes, that's truly how far the Republicans have sunk -- to the Sherlockian level of the dog not snarling in the night being the big news.
Has The Establishment played into Trump's (big) hands? The stakes are high in tonight's Republican presidential debate at the University of Miami....
A nationally-televised presidential debate stage is, indeed, neither the time nor the place, one would think. This year, however, all the rules have been thrown out and we've got Donald Trump and Marco Rubio comparing relative penis sizes in their effort to become the so-called leader of the free world.
The GOP Establishment is in such a state of apoplectic panic over the rogue candidacy of real estate developer Donald J. Trump that on Thursday they sent out its feckless failed nominee Mitt Romney to verbally assassinate the party's own frontrunner.
Facebook has a nifty new feature: we can now search for "Friends Who like Donald Trump" and do with t...
Scalia's death changed everything. Instead of nominations of federal judges being just another presidential election year hypothetical, there is now a hard, cold reality: Someone will take Scalia's place on the Supreme Court, and that person will have a lifetime appointment.
Marco Rubio played the part of a yappy little attack dog all night long, but only really landed one good blow on Trump (when he turned the "you repeat things" attack back on him) for all his heartfelt effort.
