Are you, as a young woman who lives in rich country, privileged enough to "not need feminism"? Excellent. Now please join me in trying to spread some of that privilege amongst women who need it a bit more than you do.
Maliki out-Abadi in; Gregory out-Todd in; Sterling out-Ballmer in. In a week of strife, Shrum and Frum debate two other enduring clashes: was Hillary's comment on Obama's "not doing stupid 'stuff'" nasty or innocent (she thinks the latter); how should cops patrol communities after Brown/Garner?
What makes Secretary Senator First Lady Hillary Clinton different is that she is different. If she wins, she will be the most experienced president we have had since before most people used touchtone phones.
Are House Republicans likely to actually vote to impeach Obama? No. But you know what? I don't care. Boehner is the one who started this game, the one who has sought time and again to present himself as standing up to the president. It's sweet justice to see Boehner's shenanigans redounding to the benefit of Obama.
Fear not! Governor Quit is never far from spewing new ideas. And we have proof. We were fortunate enough to get a sneak peek at the Palin Channel's development slate.
At first blush, the Tea Party and Occupy Wall Street appear as bookends: opposing grass-roots movements on the political right and left, respectively. But a look under the hood of each is instructive.
The Sarah Palin Channel, which debuts is modestly priced at $9.99 a month. That's either an amazing deal (think of all of the unedited video clips that are bound to be released at some point from some spy-intern over at MSNBC), or completely overpriced.
It would almost be amusing if it wasn't for the fact that the world is in chaos. And things aren't much better at home where, among other things, we've got a humanitarian crisis at the border.
Politicians have misled voters for as long as there have been politicians. At times, though, and not so long ago, it was not a death wish to claim to be a moderate willing to work with members of the other party. That's hardly possible when message makers call the shots.
Sarah Palin contends that President Obama isn't following the law. But perhaps we should read what the law actually is. And it turns out that not only is he following the law, but Republicans were among the ones who put together the bill that's leading to the crisis.
Things often get crazy during an American summer. It was during the summer months, after all, that the Tea Party emerged. Maybe summer gives people ...
I mentioned to a reporter the other day that I suspect the so-called "Climate Deniers" are not so much denying the science of climate change, but ra...
Why don't liberals just ignore Sarah Palin? Because they don't want to ignore her. They like not ignoring Sarah Palin. Sarah Palin is comforting. She's familiar. She's the Tea Party cliché that reminds us why we keep voting Democrat, even though our heart's not really in it anymore.
I know I'm not the only one disappointed in President Obama - I'm not even the only democrat. But I really don't think we ought to sue him, impeach him, or waste time talking about it. Or gin up angry crowds with cheap taunts about it.
