Monday night's presidential debate might as well be described as an exercise in futility when it comes to what Black women want out of this election.

Friday Talking Points -- The Debate Wait

Chris Weigant | Posted 09.23.2016 | Politics
Chris Weigant

The audience, when the debate actually happens, will be huge. Tremendous, in fact. Some (we won't say who) are even predicting it could be a bigger television event worldwide than the 1969 moon landing.

To The Next Commander-In-Chief: Does The Pentagon Really Need More Money?

William Hartung | Posted 09.07.2016 | Politics
William Hartung

Simply put, spending more money isn't in itself a strategy. Instead of simply throwing money at a massively bloated bureaucracy, it would be nice to see the candidates show some leadership and talk about the tough choices they would make as Commander-in-Chief.

The bar for the Mexican meeting was set pretty low -- all Trump really had to do was get out of it without a major gaffe of any sort.

Trump Just Can't Help Himself

Chris Weigant

If the past is any prologue, by the end of the week nobody's going to even remember this speech, because by then Trump will have had at least two or three blowups out on the campaign trail -- which will become the story, instead.

A Vote for Hillary Is a Vote for Hope -- New Hampshire Voters Miss the Mark

Rana Florida | Posted 02.10.2016 | Politics
Rana Florida

It's 2016, and while England, Germany, Denmark, Chile, Argentina, India and even Pakistan have elected women heads of state, we still haven't even nominated a woman for our highest office. With Hillary Clinton, we have a female candidate who not only has a stronger resume than that of any of her rivals in either party, but who is firmly committed ensuring equal pay for women, and who has been uniquely outspoken on the impact that women have on the economy.

Are You a Muslim? That, and a Few More Questions

Nora Dunn | Posted 12.09.2015 | Politics
Nora Dunn

It's too bad we did not have this simple, genius policy in place in time to ask Timothy McVeigh if he was carrying a load of manure in his truck. Trump would have come up with that plan too, I'm sure. Because he is smart.

Trump Says Out Loud What Republicans Think

Joschka (Yoshi) Tryba | Posted 11.23.2015 | Entertainment
Joschka (Yoshi) Tryba

we need Trump to make it painfully obvious to everyone what the Republican Party truly stands for: classism, sexism, racism, homophobia, transphobia and xenophobia. Trump really is just saying out loud what most Republicans are thinking and saying in private.

Debunking Donald Trump

Nelson Dong | Posted 11.20.2015 | Entertainment
Nelson Dong

Donald Trump is a more of a persona than a logician. He's bold, unafraid to speak his mind. It would be erroneous to construe this boldness as a virtue, however -- it's more like he simply has no filter and takes pride in being insensitive and ignorant.

Gerasene Demoniac Announces Presidential Bid

Rev. Chris Glaser

Unrestrained by the moderates of either ruling party of Gerasa, Mr. Legion has announced (howled, really) that he will run for president of the country, declaring that its dysfunctional government must be replaced by his Lunatic Fringe if it is to accomplish what the people really want.

Rand Paul and the Big-Polluter Agenda

Heather Taylor-Miesle

You'd think that as a physician, Sen. Paul would understand the importance of clean air and clean water to human health. You'd think that as a politician, he'd understand that voters don't want to elect leaders who are advocating the big-polluter agenda.

Presidential Libraries: Taking Stock as Obama Readies His Own

Paul Gunther | Posted 05.19.2015 | Politics
Paul Gunther

With the decision pending in just a couple of weeks on Library #14 for President #44, the binding force of these successive projects is the fact that there is not and never should be a single political narrative. Such shifting values rely instead on the bedrock of freedom to sustain the dynamic bonds of the social contract it upholds.

Can Lisa Simpson Become President?

Ciara Torres-Spelliscy | Posted 01.05.2015 | Politics
Ciara Torres-Spelliscy

So who do I mean by a real-life "Lisa Simpson"? I mean someone who is super bright, hard-working, ambitious, with an unshakeable moral core, but who is from a working class family who doesn't have any natural political connections, like being named Kennedy or Bush.

How to Fix America's Gridlock

Diane M. Francis | Posted 11.18.2014 | Politics
Diane M. Francis

The midterm elections loom but everyone knows what the outcome will be: gridlock, gridlock and more gridlock. That's because the U.S. system is based on a 227-year-old prototype (circa 1787) that badly needs a refresh to match the efficiency and transparency that characterizes other, superior government systems.

An Open Letter to Hillary Clinton

Marianne Williamson | Posted 09.20.2014 | Politics
Marianne Williamson

In the final analysis, we really do love democracy -- and watching it dismantled as it's being dismantled, and corrupted like it's being corrupted, has taken a lot of us from denial to real depression to a collective "Hell, no!" that will have electoral consequences in 2016.
