While the right thing to do for anyone running for the highest elected office in the land would be to squash bigotry whenever it rears its ugly head, quite frankly, the American Muslim community does not Ben Carson to affirm that a Muslim can one day be president.
Bernie may be 73 years old, but he's hip enough to understand that most voters don't spend their nights eating TV dinners and listening to radio programs. They live and breathe social media, and frankly, that's not a new development.
If it please the court of public opinion, I'd like to advocate on behalf of The Advocates. It's a TV series whose time has come. Again.
This summer Republicans have garnered a huge amount of media attention. That was true at the September 16th Republican presidential debate where they spewed lie after lie. Now, Democrats must go on offense and counter the deluge of GOP falsehoods and misstatements.
Trump doesn't have the patience, temperament, self-discipline or interest in policy issues that it takes to be president. And, deep inside, he knows it better than anyone. Fortunately for America, he can't win the presidency, because his appeal is much too narrow.
In the last two debates there has barely been any mention of veterans, and the talk of going to war only increases. The only mention of veterans is in a jingoistic rather than practical way. Veterans and their issues are being widely appropriated for the political gain of candidates, but no one seems to have an actual plan when it comes to VA reform
The data suggests former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is the most similar to Reagan, with former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee and businessman Donald Trump tied for second place.
Round 2 of the GOP debates was further proof that Jon Stewart was right: No matter how dirty it makes you feel, you just can't stop watching the Trump Show. And no two commentators can agree on how this roller-coaster ends. But one thing is certain: Mr. Trump cannot lose. Because he's already won.
There's a lot more at stake than the Donald's personality and his ability to handle attack. The primary race so far has undermined a lot of Republican truisms, and how those issues are resolved will be at least as important as Trump.
What else don't our elected officials know? And should we be concerned? More important, can we do anything to ensure that our representatives are informed on important issues?

Both Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders have legitimate shots at becoming the 45th president of the United States, unlike my ex Donna, who probably won't ever be president of anything, let alone the free world. Here's a comparison of the three.
As viewers, we turned to Stewart when democracy was losing the plot. We charged him with the numinous task of separating the real from the unreal, the empty rhetoric from the suffering it caused.
Jon Stewart reminded us that while democracy (and life) is funny, it can also be intermittently devastating, and leave the pausing complex thinkers eating the tyranny of inanities left by the panting race of power-obsessed double-dealers.
So like it or not, the times and The Donald are, in many respects, at this point hand in glove. Regardless of the millions who see his candidacy as an act, a bad dream and even a nightmare, how far Donald Trump will go in his quest is anyone's guess.
