The goal of such an argument is to make working people believe that down is up, that day is night, that Republicanism works for them, and not merely for the 1 percent. To the American people, I would simply say this: Don't you believe it.
What do New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and writer Anais Nin have in common? Not a whole lot, Christie would probably say. But a case can be made for their similar positions on one major issue: the importance of motherhood.
What's next? Does right-wing radical David Brat speak for Republicans? This is the question that voters in the Virginia 7th congressional district will answer in November.
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.
As Secretary of State, she visited 112 countries, and travelled one million miles. The book will appeal to Clinton supporters, and her many critics will harshly trash it.
Rob Schneider has now joined other hired celebrities who validate and endorse the for-profit college industry, a sector where many of the major players are now under federal and state investigation for defrauding students and taxpayers.
Just because right wingers use the words "American exceptionalism" in a jingoistic way--in a way that proclaims American superiority--doesn't mean that anyone who uses those words automatically means the same thing.
I've been watching, with great interest, Bruce Rauner's TV ads -- view here and here -- and it certainly creates the impression that he places a high value on diversity. Several African-Americans, Latinos and women appear in the ads.
With all due respect to Sen. McCain, I have a different take on this. I, too, am outraged by the lack of care that many of our veterans have received, but I'm not at all bewildered by it. In fact, I saw it coming for years.
What D'Souza did is part and parcel of the right wing's campaign to paint Obama as, in the words Mitt Romney used to describe the president's ideas, "extraordinarily foreign."
In truth, it doesn't really matter for Brown which Republican he wallops in November. He will win a record fourth term as California's governor in a landslide, his third in four gubernatorial runs. What difference does it make how much he wins by?
Last week, ColordoPols reported that gubernatorial candidate Bob Beauprez agreed, in no uncertain terms, that the federal government has the right to ...
If the War Party wins in 2016, all bets are off. We will prepare to fight in the Eurasian heartland, the South China Sea, and the resource-rich lands of Africa -- because if we don't fight them there, we'll have to fight them here. Just when it seemed like we were about to give peace a chance, the United States will suddenly revert to a three-war doctrine.
With less than three weeks until California's primary election, Governor Jerry Brown continues to campaign for a record fourth term by acting as governor while the race for the right to lose to him in November between a pair of little-known yet sharply contrasting Republicans continues to intrigue in an oddly low-key sort of way.
