No dear, I don't know why the guy you're into won't text you back. (I still haven't figured that out for my own purposes.) And, for the love of all that is good and HOLY: I am not -- repeat, NOT -- an honorary girl.
As we mark the 5th anniversary of the disastrous Supreme Court decision Citizens United vs. FEC, it is worth heeding: Who is Citizens United, and how did they manage to subvert generations of campaign finance laws?
American political history is littered with examples of politicians who ran for their current office as well as another office in the same election. Paul is not the first Kentuckian to seek re-election to his current post concomitantly seeking the presidency or vice presidency.
Mike Huckabee's actions when he was governor led to four police officers being executed. Just like Governor Dukakis never did with the Barnes', Governor Huckabee never uttered the slightest apology to the family's of the four slain police officers.
The storyline has long been that Hart challenged the press to follow him around and, in the post-Watergate spirit of enterprising investigative journalism, the press did just that, fearlessly uncovering, well, er, what?
The fact that the formerly obscure Randolph-Macon College Economics Professor defeated U.S. House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) in his bid for renomination to his congressional seat sent shockwaves through the body politic.
Absent the stratospheric job approval ratings of George W. Bush in 1998 and Hillary Clinton in 2006, Kasich and Walker are more likely to face a similar scenario to Bill Clinton in 1990. They will have to go full-throttle to win re-election and maintain their political viability.
The leap between being surprised on Election Night in 2012 and believing climate change is a hoax is not that big. In both cases, eschewing scientific approaches leads to fundamental misunderstandings of reality.
In 1974 Michael Dukakis was elected as the governor of Massachusetts. That year, thousands of miles away, on the opposite coast of our great nation, I was born. Little did either of us know that 13 years later we would come face to face.
Almost no one aspires to become lieutenant governor, outside of the fact that it is a launching pad to higher office. Future President Warren G. Harding and Calvin Coolidge both got their cards punched as lieutenant governor on their journey to the White House.
Olympia Dukakis returns to San Francisco in ACT's ambitious production of Sophocles' Elektra. The show chronicles the seemingly inescapable depths into which its lead character plunges as she grapples with love and revenge.
The Romney that poked his head out of the ground last week was not the Romney that Republican activists presumed that they nominated. We saw glimpses once again of the Romney that once was -- and that Romney's primary opponents long warned against.
Back in hoary antiquity -- say, prior to the presidential election of 2004 -- a secularist's voting preference was fore-ordained. To wit, a secularist voted for the Democrat and the Democrat only. But things have changed.
This convention will be different. For Arab Americans, with our record breaking numbers, it will represent a "coming of age." Our hard work has brought us from exclusion to being respected and recognized as part of the mainstream of the Democratic Party.
