Should Adopted Children be Allowed to Say "Mommy" and "Daddy?"

(174) Comments | Posted November 25, 2008 | 12:44 PM

My wife and I are expecting our first child any day now. A beautiful, natural, biological child - just the way God intended children to be.

Impending fatherhood, plus the fact that my home state of California has proven that civil rights are subject to voter approval, has emboldened me...

7 Reasons McCain Will Win in a Landslide Today

(262) Comments | Posted November 3, 2008 | 1:15 PM

Back in July, I wrote a piece predicting a huge Obama win. I even offered a recipe for an Election Night drink called the "McCrush" (vodka and Orange Crush over crushed ice, served in a hollow flip-flop with a sprig of pandering). But that was an electoral eternity ago...

The Assassination of John McCain by the Coward John McCain

(44) Comments | Posted October 14, 2008 | 1:10 PM

John McCain is dead.

Cut down by a coward.

For years, the Senator from Arizona was a man of conviction and passion. A man who stood shoulder to shoulder with liberals and independents on key issues. A man who fought to clean up the influence of corporate money in politics,...

It's Time to Demand an Apology from George W. Bush

(98) Comments | Posted October 6, 2008 | 8:38 PM

Mr. President,

When grown ups make a mistake, wrong someone, cause harm -- they apologize. It's the quickest way to settle the issue and get on with life. It demonstrates strength and character. Humility and honor.

You've caused quite a bit of harm, Mr. President. We're still waiting for...

What Else Would President McCain Postpone in a Crisis?

(198) Comments | Posted September 24, 2008 | 3:54 PM

(UPDATE: So now we know that it was Obama who first called McCain and suggested a joint statement on the crisis this morning, which McCain agreed to, before pulling a fast one and going on TV with his "suspend" surprise. What a cynical, political, desperate man he's become. I can...

The Man Who Called His Wife a "C--t" Cries "Sexism!"

The man who can't remember how many houses he owns cries "elitist!"

The man who said "The issue of economics is not something I've understood as well as I should, and "I believe the fundamentals of this economy are strong," cries "economy!"

The man whose running mate denies manmade global...

There Will Be Blood: Obama Supporters React to Palin's Speech

(18) Comments | Posted September 4, 2008 | 3:33 PM

Sarah Palin gave a very good speech last night. Not great; not star-making, as some have dubbed it -- but very good. Give the woman her props. True, it contained little or no mention of policy, but that wasn't her job. She was there to deliver applause lines, platitudes, and...

8 Reasons Sarah Palin is More Qualified than Barack Obama

(439) Comments | Posted September 2, 2008 | 4:16 PM

Sarah Palin (sp?) has ignited the presidential race and fired up the GOP -- as evidenced by three women at the RNC who took the time to print the words "We," "Love," and "Sarah" on pieces of paper and tape them to the backs of their t-shirts. Sarah's even won...

Five Questions for John McCain: An Urgent Appeal to the MSM

(137) Comments | Posted August 19, 2008 | 3:31 PM

Dear Mainstream Media,

For all the attention you've lavished on John McCain's Saddleback "victory," not ONE of you has asked him ANY of the obvious follow-ups:

Question #1: "Did you err when you attributed the 'cross in the dirt' story to yourself, and if not, why didn't you ever mention...

Would McCain Rather Win Than Catch bin Laden?

(45) Comments | Posted July 25, 2008 | 5:10 PM

On today's Situation Room, when Wolf Blitzer asked him about his vow to catch Osama bin Laden, John Mccain said, "Well, I'm not gonna telegraph a lot of the things that I'm gonna do, because then it might compromise our ability to do so. But look, I know the area....

McCain's Got 99 Problems

(100) Comments | Posted July 22, 2008 | 3:26 PM

John McCain is having such a bad July that writing about his collective woes would require the patience and talent of David McCullough. Since I have neither, I turned (as I often do) to the wisdom of Jay-Z, and listed the first 99 that came to mind:

99. Bush's willingness...

All of McCain's Base Belongs to Us: Why It Won't Even Be Close

(488) Comments | Posted July 1, 2008 | 8:29 PM

It's over.

It's mathematically impossible for John McCain to win.

Were the great Tim Russert still with us, he would call the election for Obama at 7pm Eastern time. No, I'm not talking about November 4th -- I mean tonight.

Here we are in the present -- an electric...

Fear of a Black President

(145) Comments | Posted June 19, 2008 | 6:37 PM

UPDATE: It seems like a lot of you are reading this and concluding that I'm either an idiot or a racist. I'll cop to being an idiot -- HuffPo probably isn't the best forum for unflattering self-analysis, especially where race is involved. But let me point out two things: one,...

6 Other Things that Aren't "Change We Can Believe In"

(249) Comments | Posted June 5, 2008 | 3:32 PM

By now, McCain's "green speech" has been widely praised as one of the funniest half-hours of television since Arrested Development was canceled. The speech aimed to turn Obama's "Change We Can Believe In" slogan into a surprise Mac Attack by inserting the words "That's Not" at the beginning of it....

George W. Bush's Magical Closet of Democracy

(10) Comments | Posted May 15, 2008 | 6:51 PM

Most of the time, George W. Bush displays a merely middling level of breathtaking stupidity. Roughly the level of those who need Rush to tell them how to vote or Ann to tell them who they hate. But once in a while, as he did today in the Knesset, he...

It's Not About Hating Hillary

(100) Comments | Posted May 5, 2008 | 2:22 PM

It's about believing in Barack.

When it comes to forgetting that, I'm as guilty as they come. Guilty of twisting myself into something more "anti-Hillary" than "pro-Obama." Guilty of letting righteous indignation cloud the big picture. Most of all -- I'm guilty of forgetting what drew me to the...

The following is a partial transcript of Hillary Clinton's interview on an imaginary episode of The O'Reilly Factor.

Bill: Did you agree with me when I characterized Mexicans as "wetbacks" on the air?

Hillary: I, uh...

Ten Things to Remember on Tuesday Night

Hillary Clinton will win Pennsylvania.

Arguments over the meaning or meaninglessness of her win will dominate MSM and stretch bandwidth to its breaking point. Bloggers and pundits will dust off their favorite boxing metaphors: "Hillary's off the ropes!" "Obama can't land the knockout!" Hillbots will rejoice, Obamabots will panic,...

Norma Rae Clinton: Hillary's Middle Class Hypocrisy

(133) Comments | Posted April 14, 2008 | 3:28 PM

And so her suicide campaign continues.

Last Sunday, Barack Obama was speaking at a fundraiser when he said that some small town voters "cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren't like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations."...
