Corn and Cooke debate how to keep Iran from weaponizing its nuclear energy. Obama's tour de force presser argues 'jaw-jaw not war-war'. Critics say that simplifies the issue. But wasn't lifting sanctions for no-nukes the plan? Then: was Scott Walker ready for his close-up? Hillary for her Eco orals?
The Pride(?) of Wisconsin makes it official.
With 2016 fast approaching, things look bleak for the GOP. Pandering to a non-white voting block could very well end up costing it the South, as it did to the Democrats in the 1960s. At the same time, pandering to base will alienate too many groups to win in a general election--not the least of which are Latinos.
For extra fun, I gave all of the would-be Presidents nicknames, and actually called all of them President (Fill in your favorite) because if actually reading something like President Huckabee doesn't run a chill up your spine, I don't know what will.
This will basically allow politicians in Wisconsin to accept unlimited, secret contributions with impunity, as long as the money is not used for ads that expressly say to vote for or against a candidate.
Some conservative political leaders want you to believe that gay men are a threat to children. They choose to turn away from actual problems facing kids in American schools. In doing so, they are perpetuating the obstacles that LGBT youth must face every day.
Wall Street and the Koch brothers have an agenda for America that, unless you are a top executive of a powerful corporate conglomerate, won't work out very well for you. The Democratic Party must embrace a progressive populist economic agenda if it wants to offer a winning alternative in 2016.
Scott Walker thought he was playing a deft game. But this week it blew up in spectacular fashion as Walker stepped on the Ben Carson third rail and blatantly implied gay men are predators who can't be trusted around children. You'd think in 2015 this kind of blatant defamation would be banished from politics.
Governor Walker is a clear and present danger to the future of social justice in America, a twenty-first century menace who would, without compromise, destroy every last vestige of the public sector and turn the U.S. into an even bigger prison than it is now.
The media has a love/hate relationship with Donald Trump. He is at once, breathtaking in his proclamations and ludicrous in his behavior. He is hard to ignore. Like the entertainment value of watching two trains collide, no one in media wants to miss a Trump event. At the same time, they don't want to take him too seriously.

One wonders what a Republican like Roosevelt would make of a Republican like Governor Walker. Roosevelt believed in democracy and the power of government to bring about change and progress.
Of course if the "short-fingered vulgarian" -- to borrow a Spy Magazine term of endearment for Mr. Trump -- runs as a Independent, then, as in 1992 (when Ross Perot stole huge numbers of the GOP vote), the Republicans don't have a prayer, no matter whom they run.
The mere mention of tenure evokes strong reactions. However, a more measured and data-driven approach is necessary. As Scott Walker moves into the national spotlight and this debate's scope is broadened, we all must remember that it is the needs of America's students that must be placed front and center.
Although Democrats salivate at the thought of facing an unelectable Republican like Ted Cruz or Donald Trump, they understand that Republicans are unlikely to actually nominate any of the fringe candidates.
