Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) appeared on CNN and complained that she's going to lose her insurance because of Obamacare. Bachmann is clearly very frightened about the prospect, but it's mainly because she's totally confused about how exactly to sign up.
There comes a time in every day when I think something like, "I'd love to live in a country where there's a machine that can measure your soul, and when someone -- someone, say, like a Ted Cruz, or a Michele Bachmann -- falls below a certain level of humanity, he or she is simply not allowed on TV."
I'm going to stand up for Mitt Romney. Now you might not realize this, but that last sentence is magical. It's the only phrase in the English langua...
At the end of the day and with of 20/20 hindsight, any Monday morning quarterback can see that the recent government shutdown/debt ceiling debacle rai...
American politics is perhaps the only field where office holders can spend the preponderance of their time campaigning for another office while being truant from the office they currently hold.
The themes and speakers at VVS2013 have the whiff of decayed ideas and diminished power. But the really horrible part of the event is the complete and utter lack of interest in the poor, the immigrants, and those on the margins -- you know, those people Jesus loved.
"This isn't a damn game!" House Speaker John Boehner said Friday at a news conference on the budget stalemate that has led to the government shutdown. Really Mr. Speaker? The government shutdown is, in fact, a direct result of political gamesmanship by the Republicans.
Ted Cruz could learn a lot from Walter White, and the thought makes me shudder. Only Ted Cruz's incompetence stands between us and our country's utter ruin. Nobody get Cruz a Netflix account.
The GOP constantly excoriates liberals and Democrats for their welfare state fantasies because, Republicans insist, there is no such thing as a "free lunch" and that leftists don't understand that life involves hard choices. But the irony here is that Obamacare, for all its flaws, actually recognizes this.
Talk about missing the point. And no, I do not refer to the mindless mainstream media (who apparently don't know the difference between "a filibuster" and "a 21-hour ego trip").
The PolitiChicks are a group of conservative women who claim to be covering "the most important issues and events of the day." And, apparently, one of those important issues last week was deciding who should be considered America's "hottest conservative supermen."
So when Mohamed Morsi was elected president of Egypt, or when Hamas and Hezbollah won elections in Gaza and Lebanon, some Committee on Core Beliefs should have had a veto over the outcome? What could possibly go wrong?
After the Supreme Court's rulings on DOMA and Prop 8 last week, the anti-gay crusaders made their grave pronouncements about 'God's law' and 'founding fathers' and the 'sanctity of marriage' on the Sunday talk shows.
A long time ago there was a remarkable man, a man who said that might does not make right, that the weak have a strength the strong do not have, and that what we call "justice" is often really injustice. He was a man who was condemned by traditional conservative society.
Just as sections of our roadways are sponsored by local companies and interest groups, naming rights for the wall along our borders should be sold to the highest bidder. But that's just the beginning.
