Do acts of bravery by the Taliban deserve movies celebrating, honoring, and fetishizing them? Are they also heroes?

Let me say up front that if my own kids' home-packed lunches were inspected by a school or government official, I'd be quite ticked off. But at the same time, these sorts of incidents just don't fill me with the horror or outrage that so many have expressed in the blogosphere.

On the other side, with a new Democratic candidate needed for 2016, I wouldn't be shocked if we see books from possible frontrunners Cory Booker, Kirsten Gillibrand, Andrew Cuomo, Antonio Villaraigosa, Deval Patrick and even stalwarts Hillary Clinton and possibly... Joe Biden?

Are these hateful protests from isolated crackpots? Or do they exemplify a larger fringe America so lost in bigotry and anti-Obama zealotry that they've lost all moral bearings?

Of course Mitt Romney supports redistribution. Everyone supports redistribution to some extent. It's literally how the government collects and spends tax revenue.

There are many elements responsible for this crumbling of Girl Power, but let me start by putting blame squarely on the media for its hiring of and pandering to female pundits and commentators who seem hell bent on competing with the worst of the guys.

Paul Ryan's voting record doesn't match his lofty conservative rhetoric. He's a big government hypocrite that has repeatedly turned his back on the principles of the Tea Party movement.

It's Not 'Swift Boating' If It's True

The Swift Boat Veterans for Truth smear campaign represented a singularly awful chapter in American politics. Let's not pretend every time a candidate has to answer uncomfortable questions about his past that the Swift Boat Vets are riding again.

Fueled by a heady bout of denial as practiced by an egomaniac, and cheered on by a fan base of enablers, Rush Limbaugh's Sandra Fluke saga is still generating national headlines on its 22nd day. How has the story of an AM talker's offensive chatter been able to sustain itself for so long?

Republicans know this "slut" controversy has been a disaster for them politically, yet they were powerless to do anything about it. Powerless to stop it. That's because Republicans can't turn off the Noise Machine, even when it's in the throes of a nervous breakdown.
