We need much more than dueling hashtags and op-ed columnists debating rape on the Internet. We need a serious deconstruction of real numbers in real time.

I'm a "Taxer"

So what exactly is Mitt hiding? Is he a flat-out tax cheat or simply paying embarrassingly low rates which would further cast him as a privileged elitist who's even more out-of-touch with the average voter than previously believed?

At the very least, Democrats could hit Trump where it hurts most: in his wallet.

Blame Wall Street, Not Boomers

Tucker Carlson launched The Daily Caller today and asked me to write a post for his opening day. I said yes -- and not just because he told the Wall Street Journal he reads HuffPost every day! He says that he and his team are "trying to think through what comes next in journalism."

Anyone looking at today's political landscape with clear eyes can see that on issue after issue -- the war in Afghanistan, the bailout, health care, the war on drugs, etc, etc -- the binary division of the debate into right vs. left has become obsolete.
