More cartoons by Mike Smith at Las Vegas Sun....
Ron Reagan and David Frum debate whether ending filibusters over presidential appointments was a "power grab" or a pro-democracy move to reduce dysfunction? And is the Obamacare fight about health care or "the promise of liberalism"? Then: the Kennedys, the Reagans & assassination.
Of course brothers and sisters have differences of opinion, argue and fight with each other. Nothing new there. The prolific English hymn writer and ...
A public feud between sisters Liz and Mary Cheney which began last summer took a new confrontational turn over the weekend as Liz appeared on "Fox News Sunday" with Chris Wallace and restated her opposition to same-sex marriage.
Ms. Cheney, I know that you face charges of "carpetbagging" and inauthenticity from many in the state of Wyoming over your campaign to represent that ...
Coming from the Washington, D.C., suburbs, Liz needed to establish herself as a moral crusader in deep red Wyoming. What better way than to have a public feud over "family values" with her little sister who is married to a woman and raising two children?
This family drama suggests that things are are not getting "better" for the GOP, the way activists promise LGBT teens it will get better for them. In fact, the new generation of the Cheney family suggests the GOP is evolving into something scarier.
There is almost nothing to which a person aspires that can be gained without compromise. The American people do not need to be made afraid of contrariness, or impassioned dissent, or of cooperation. That is a fear that will surely scuttle our democracy from within.
John and Adams Patriot explain Christianity, Ronald Reagan, gays, Obama's America, pizza delivery, guns and their lust for Liz Cheney.
Shrum & Reagan debate why some survive scandal (Jefferson, Clinton) while others don't (Hart, Edwards). And there's unanimity that Morsi ouster is least worst option for Egypt, U.S., Democracy. And: Can Hillary be too old if Dutch wasn't?
With so many good titles taken -- Heart of Darkness for one -- what will Dick, Liz and Dr. Pulse call their future bestseller?
"We're the 99%" has helped shift media and public attention back to inequality and jobs. Matalin and Rosen debate whether it's more a hippie flash mob or Paris '68... and will the killing of al-Awlaki mean more Drones by more nations? Then: Slutwalks.
Mr. Cheney, with all due respect, this is a classic example of when and where actions speak louder than words, and certainly much louder than bluster.
A fair trial led to a stiff sentence, leaving the fear-mongers dumb. The folks in the Obama Administration should keep that in mind when they decide where to try KSM.
It seems that the hate-spewing hordes of 2010 have presented us with far more than the usual amount of arrogant ignorance, bald-faced bigotry, and brazen hypocrisy.
It would almost be funny that lawmakers give more credit to the likes of Rush Limbaugh, Liz Cheney and alarmist Fox News anchors than to their own retired senior military leaders -- but only if the consequences weren't so serious.
