Needed: Some Will Rogers' Sanity

With incivility running high in our politics and society, we sure could use a dose of sanity from Will Rogers, one of America's greatest humorists.

Turns Out Trump is Right a Lot

As evidenced by his hair, Donald J. Trump is pretty much wrong all the time. Every time. About everything. Except when he isn't. One example is, should he become president, Mexico indeed will build a wall - to control our immigration. "Get me the hell out of here. Por favor?" Hell, Canada might have to build one as well. "Hey, let me in dere, ya hoser. S'il vous plait, eh?"

A Common Misperception About Gun Control

Most of us, regardless of our personal beliefs about gun control, want to build a safer and more prosperous nation. Standing on that common ground, we should address a common misperception.

What Did Fed Chairman Yellen Tell Obama?

Last week, President Obama and Vice President Biden held a hastily arranged secret meeting with Federal Reserve Chairman Janet Yellen. According to the one paragraph statement released by the White House following the meeting, Yellen, Obama, and Biden simply "exchanged notes" about the economy and the progress of financial reform. Because the meeting was held behind closed doors, the American people have no way of knowing what else the three might have discussed.

From Obama to Trump: What We’ve Lost in Just 12 Years

Back in July 2004, when I was a (somewhat) younger political reporter, I was standing in the rafters of the old Fleet Bank Center in Boston listening to an unknown politician deliver a pretty extraordinary speech to the Democratic National Convention.

Feeling the Bull: Bernie's Biggest Con

You'll get no argument from me that Hillary Clinton is a flawed candidate - stonewalling the release of those Goldman Sachs chats is merely Exhibit A - but when it comes to bull-slinging and empty sloganeering, she's no match for her self-righteous rival.

Will Durst's 21st Annual Political Animal Awards

A major silver lining in this cruelest month of April is a lull between show business awards galas. The lack of gold plated statuettes being flung about mercifully allows many Americans to stand upright for the first time in months. It won't be long, however, before we once again are forced to wrap ourselves in industrial strength Saran wrap to avoid drowning in the leakage of enough weepy insincerity to fill Olympic sized swimming pools with an unending torrent of ego-splooey.
