You have got to love a man who can bring Iran into the fold in a day, humble China, befriend Vladimir Putin and make America "great again." One wonders if he can do it all in six days.
With Kasich not even registering in polls outside of Ohio, he stands little chance at winning the White House. But if Kasich can carve out a successful voter base on the primary campaign trail, he will be a very attractive choice for Vice President.
Of all the more popular political sins, my personal favorite has always been hypocrisy. One of the wonderful things about hypocrisy is that it so often comes around to bite the hypocrite on the butt.
I find it interesting that in the wake of the Charleston massacre, Republican presidential candidates, The Wall Street Journal, Fox News, etc. are hedging their analyses, invoking "nuance," and asking for more details to emerge.
It's been a rollercoaster week in the political world, beginning with Hillary Clinton shifting the gears of her campaign by holding her first big rally, which was immediately followed by the man we're going to call "Jeb! Bush!" finally officially announcing his own candidacy.
As long as we divide the world between "us" and "them," what happened in South Carolina will continue to happen until we start using the word that will change the world: WE.
With your help, I may not be able to win the Oval Office, but I can tell fart jokes during the debates and possibly move the conversation in a more fun direction.
The Right predictably freaks out; India goes solar in a big way; PLUS: Trump is running for president. It's no hoax! But he thinks global warming is... All that and more in today's Green News Report!
Several prominent candidates, including Marco Rubio, Rick Perry and even so-called moderate Jeb Bush remain staunchly opposed to both marijuana legalization and same-sex marriage. Will those conservative viewpoints hinder them in the upcoming election cycle?
Marching through Trump Tower to Canadian Neil Young's "Rockin' in the Free World", Donald took his time waiving awkwardly from above the crowd before descending an escalator to teach us poor losers a lesson.
Jeb Bush doesn't understand climate change: My daughters, 7 and 9, have a solid elementary school understanding of environmental stewardship. But if I asked them to explain global warming, they would likely be unable to do so using the language of science.
Is Fox News on the brink of becoming (as Pinocchio might say) a "real news organization" instead of the wooden de facto propaganda wing of the Republican Party?
It is a common and hyperbolic refrain that Democrats have been (and still are) the anti-religion party. Now, however, Republicans may be running into religion problems of their own as evangelical and Roman Catholics become more engaged with issues such as poverty and climate change.
The 2016 election ambitions of the Koch brothers and what they represent on the Republican right wing, free-market absolutism, are nothing short of breathtaking.
Is there a certain synchronicity at work with Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush staging their big formal campaign openings just as Jurassic World oddly enjoys the biggest opening weekend of all time with its recycled plot (albeit with new bells and whistles) about the dangerous majesty of rampaging dinosaurs? It has to be.
