With one deft stroke, Barack Obama made clear that the shutdown and the threat of a national default flowed directly from Reaganism, and that the tea party Republicans are no fringe element.
Though Congressman Peter King is from New York, he should not be mistaken for an old-fashioned moderate Republican. He is a full-blooded Reaganite, but he is realistic enough to recognize that his party is engaged in a suicide mission.
After intense examination of his iCloud backup, this reporter can reveal that the following email, and the surprising, double-digit contribution to w...
It's all becoming clear now. House Republicans are just really big fans of Douglas Adams -- that's been their plan all along.
The "Dark Kingdom of Hateland" is ruled by Congressmen Peter King (R-NY) and Steve King (R- IA). These xenophobic politicians, if allowed, will soon t...
With national security at risk, an important conversation has begun in Washington, D.C. and caught fire around the dinner table all over the country. What do you like more? Your privacy? Your safety? Both?
For holders of major elective office, there is little disincentive to engage in the most shameless demagoguery imaginable. Our political system doesn't punish people for blatant disregard for truth.
While the parties in Washington remain divided on most issues, they are strongly united on at least one: nobody like Ted Cruz.

Good: "stay calm and carry on" like Deval. Bad: overreact w/ Iraq & torture. Ugly: vote for gun deaths.
When the infamous Adam Schefter tweeted on Wednesday that the Broncos were in "serious talks" with then New England Patriot Wes Welker, and that a decision was "expected today," I immediately thought it was a smoke screen.
In order to take the White House in 2016, the GOP must win traditionally blue states like New York and New Jersey to amass the electoral votes necessary to win the presidency. Only a guy like Christie, not Miami's Rubio or Louisiana's Jindal, can achieve this.
I never prayed for Steve to win the election, only to keep our sanity intact. With President Obama's inauguration this week, my thoughts turn to election night of my husband's campaign for the U. S. Congress.
In the weeks surrounding the raid on bin Laden, the government, the intelligence community, the media, and the public displayed a wide variance of views on waterboarding. The intelligence community in particular seems marked by inconsistency and outright contradiction.
