"Honey, grab the kids, Mitt's on the line! I'm going to put it on speakerphone. Aw, isn't that nice of him, taking time out of his schedule to call us directly? You've got my vote, Governor! Thanks for calling!"
Mitt Romney is going to lose on Tuesday -- and Sarah Palin's self-serving antics over the last four years will be a good deal to blame. Just as she was four years ago, Sarah Palin remains the Democrats' best weapon come Election Day.
Republican Congressional candidate Col. Martha McSally says she has been "fighting for women's rights and women's equality [her] whole life." McSally...
Our country has come a long way to get to where we are as far as beginning to actually allow our multiculturalism to become more out there. America is not going back. And even if Romney could win this election, it won't change that.
For your edification, a look back at the phrases, nouns, and neologisms that have, for better or for worse, shaped the week's national discourse.
In just the past week, we've been regaled with the supposedly startling revelations that: Halle Berry and Sarah Palin are cousins; Barack Obama and Mitt Romney are related; Justin Bieber, Avril Lavigne, Ryan Gosling and Celine Dion are all cousins. My reaction to all this: Yawn.
As Mitt Romney tries to redraw himself as a moderate in the final days of his Etch-A-Sketch candidacy, some troubling stories from his career as a Mormon leader outside of Boston can't be erased.
The former two-term governor of California told me over the summer that he still believes that most things get done through "action in the center" away from the extremes.
The blind feeding frenzy that ensued over Mitt Romney's "47 percent" remark is the latest example of the lamestream media at its worst.

Of course Mitt Romney supports redistribution. Everyone supports redistribution to some extent. It's literally how the government collects and spends tax revenue.
As female representation in the United States slips even lower, one has to ask whether women will ever experience the political strength found in other democracies.
It's one thing to fire off the inflammatory rhetoric when it's part of the day-to-day grind of a close election. It's another to shamelessly exploit for political purposes the deaths of Americans who've sacrificed their lives to make the world a better place.
A few months ago, Sarah Palin, with her trademark sarcasm, asked Obama supporters, "How's that hopey changey stuff working out for ya?"
