I received an email today from a black elder asking me to reprint a column I wrote for an African American newspaper in April 2008 detailing the persistent racism in the Clinton campaign as it tried to derail Obama's historic run for the presidency. She wanted me to "remind the American people of how far the Clintons had stooped" a mere eight years ago.

Why do Republican voters seem to naturally gravitate to celebrities -- most of whom are, shall we say, 'short' on actual knowledge about politics, legislative issues, and global affairs?

When Fox News Didn't Blame The White House For A Huge Terror Attack In Europe (Hint: Bush Was President)

For anyone who's been watching the Fox News coverage since Friday and seen the almost non-stop smear campaign against Obama (it's been part of the larger, right-wing media freakout), it's almost unimaginable what the Fox commentary would sound like if ISIS killed hundreds in America during next year's campaign.

"That was after my time," Fiorina said. Interesting. First, Redington Gulf was named Wholesaler of the Year for HP in 2003, when Carly Fiorina was very much the CEO. Second, this is a totally different answer than the one she delivered a week ago, to Chris Wallace.

Carly Fiorina Lies To Fox, Has A Bri-Wi Problem

Eric Schmeltzer | Posted 09.21.2015 | Politics
Eric Schmeltzer

Carly Fiorina has a big problem with the truth. More specifically, she has a problem with embellishing the truth, in a manner very reminiscent of disgraced NBC anchor Brian Williams. In what is becoming a pattern, Fiorina takes what is true, and adds made-up embellishments (lies) to it, for dramatic effect.

About That Racist Email Your Grandmother Got...

Perhaps black people will focus exclusively on eradicating black-on-black crime when white people focus exclusively on eradicating white supremacy. Until then, black folks will continue to focus on both issues, and make changing the policies and practices that contribute to crime in the black community a priority.

As a political scientist, I am reluctant to make predictions about elections, especially about the behavior of a single individual. But I'm willing to make an exception this year, because the presidential campaign is turning out to be such an exceptionally crucial (and entertaining) one.

The Trump Phenomenon and U.S. Political Culture

The only things that really matter in Republican politics today are name recognition, a degree of celebrity, and the ability to make outrageous statements that appeal to a minority of voters.

The GOP can never pass up an opportunity to make themselves look like complete buffoons, and a protest following the funeral for Freddy Gray, who died from a severe spinal cord injury while in police custody, is no exception.
