Trump has been an unfit candidate for a long time and for many reasons, so it's curious that an videotape that has brought his misogyny into sharp relief is becoming the tipping point in this year's presidential race. But perhaps we shouldn't be surprised by Republicans' disparate tolerance of racial bigotry versus misogyny.
You want a campaign slogan for 2016? Race. Infecting American Life Since 1492. You don't like the choices? Trump or Hillary? You, and everyone bef...
Hillary Clinton recently introduced her mental health plan. But it is not half as good as the Helping Families in Mental Health Crisis Act (H. R. 2646), which passed the House by a vote of 422-2, and should be taken up by the Senate this week.
Here's a quiz. Can you guess which member of Congress with his wife holds more Wells Fargo stock than any other, at least according to the most recently available financial disclosure forms? You guessed right! Mitch McConnell.
After serving as Alaska's junior United States Senator for twenty-two years, in 2002 Frank Murkowski was elected governor of Alaska. As governor, Frank's first action was to dumbfound Alaskans by appointing his daughter Lisa to serve out his term in the Senate.
It's on us, as parents, educators and citizens, to lead and live by example. Moderate and legal alcohol consumption encouragement and practice would do far greater good than prohibition or a warning label.
Trump begins the week with the WSJ urging the RNC to cut him loose if he can't turn around his floundering campaign by Labor Day...and ends it with the Bannon-Manafort shuffle. Cooke & Lamarche laugh off the chance he can stop scratching his attention-getting-disorder itch. GOP prospects Nov. 9?
What would it take for one of these cowards to actually break from Trump? In all likelihood, they'd have to see hard evidence that their continued support for him is actually hurting them at the polls. Forget America First. For Ryan and McConnell, it's Me First.
A Democrat, who is an strong supporter of Hillary Rodham Clinton, writing this column may seem counter-productive but I believe in a strong two-party ...

If you vote for President Trump, you will actually be voting for President McConnell.
In its recent survey of attitudes of government performance, the Pew Research Center posed a question to a wide swath of Americans: What is the secret of America's success as a nation?
The tragic news from Orlando dominated the week's media, as once again someone with easy access to military-style weaponry takes dozens of lives. According to Donald Trump and John McCain, this is all Barack Obama's fault (of course). Personally, we think if you want to go back and point fingers, you'd have to include George W. Bush.
The Republican Party is in turmoil. Its leadership has so far chosen to support a presumptive nominee that has used hate, fear and personal attacks to secure enough delegates to be nominated at its upcoming convention. Does the GOP really want to be the party of Donald Trump?
"Woman Hear Me Roar" says Clinton, clinching nomination and making some spines tingle. But the panel sticks to Trump odds of 5%-40% because he's a qualified ignorant bully and she's a qualified smart president. Can he be dumped by GOP? Only if more Curiel-like blunders plus polls showing her steadily up by 10 points.
