We'll have to wait until next week to see if and how the late night shows tackle the tragic shooting in Aurora, Colorado (except for Craig Ferguson, w...
As important as it is it is to defend Huma Abedin or to rebuke Michele Bachmann, this is not enough. We must commit to changing the way we talk about Islam and the Arab World.
We're not going to have our normal partisan talking points today. We're going to follow the lead set by Barack Obama and Mitt Romney, and we're just not going to go there today.
The terror attack in Bulgaria is being exploited to silence Iranian Americans who had nothing to do with this appalling act, simply because of our heritage.
As policy-makers and elected officials Rep. Bachman and her co-signers are not only spreading vicious allegations, they are detracting from serious discussions over national security by using irresponsible and half-baked rhetoric.
The people of Minnesota realize that Rep. Bachmann is more interested in promoting her own celebrity than working to improve the lives of American families. It is time to address issues that really matter -- not chase wild conspiracy theories in a self-interested attempt for fame and publicity.
After all the Republicans have done to coarsen the political rhetoric, they have little or no credibility to complain about negative campaign attacks now. The Republican attack machine has come back to haunt itself.

Instead of criticizing those who simply show respect to a candidate, Democrats must claim the moral high ground and not engage in personal attacks on Mitt Romney and his family.
Lately, I've been hearing all this talk about election fraud, "noncitizens," and the like. Well, I say forget about it. Not necessary! What we need is an election dance-off à la Dancing with the Stars, and the winner gets to be president of the United States!
What we've seen in the last few years is the gradual and systematic transformation of the far right's pundit class into the mainstream right's elected class.
As in most presidential election years, noisy battles have been raging as the nation's political armies gear up for what promises to be an even nois...
The inconvenient truth about being the first Black president is the Black part. It seems America wants all of the credit for electing a man of color to the Oval Office but wants no part of the reality that race still matters in America.
It has just been reported that Rep. Michele Bachmann recently became a citizen of Switzerland (based on her husband's Swiss descent). This is wrong on so many levels. American citizens should not have any other citizenship.
While the Veepstakes speculation ensues, planning for a presidential transition and a Romney Cabinet will commence. Who might President Romney choose for his foreign policy team?
