More the Merrier

I've got to congratulate Donald Trump for how fast he's become more annoying to the Republican Party than a mouse in an air conditioning unit. He's like that popcorn husk that gets stuck in the back of your molars and you can't pry it out with a cord of toothpicks. He's almost as grating as the Kars for Kids commercial.

Are We a Kirk or Picard?

It's a sign of the times that the dumbest answer in the presidential campaign so far yielded the deepest question. As usual, Ted Cruz started it.

Gun Control: Eating Steak with Teaspoons

President Obama told the BBC he's "stymied" because he's not gotten his way regarding gun control --yet. So, apparently we should just relinquish our guns during a Second Amendment burning ceremony on the National Lawn.

Trump: Rising From the GOP's Ashes

There's no shortage of publicity maestro, name-emblazer Donald Trump think pieces on the Internet these days. Most will attribute his straight talk to his more-than-likely-fleeting frontrunner status. Others point to some anger or racism the Trump Brand Name has tapped into. The rest? Apologists or denouncers. But all seem to agree that Trump is bad for the Republican Party; he's sucking all the air out of the nominee process. That some other alleged serious candidates won't get the attention they need because Trump is, well, trumping them.

Rumpus Chumpus Trumpus

For all those bemoaning the lack of noise in the Republican presidential sweepstakes, it's time to get down on our knees and give thanks to Donald Trump because whatever that man touches turns to loud. He's the gift that keeps on blaring. Has all the delicate innuendo of concrete curtain rods. Not just a loose cannon, more like a loose aircraft carrier.

Trump, Cruz and the All Caps Vote

Despite his penchant for counter-factual pronouncements, Ted Cruz is clever, educated, and aggressively intellectual. But he's not stupid, so when he defends Donald Trump for calling Mexican immigrants rapists, you know he's up to something. Right now, Trump is the frontrunner thanks to dominating the All Caps Vote, a constituency that Cruz wants for his own.

Iran Agreement Boosts Peace, Defeats Neocons

Last week's successfully concluded Iran agreement is one of the two most important achievements of an otherwise pretty dismal Obama presidency. Along with the ongoing process of normalizing relations with Cuba, this move shows that diplomacy can produce peaceful, positive changes. It also shows that sometimes taking a principled position means facing down overwhelming opposition from all sides and not backing down. The president should be commended for both of these achievements.

Senate Could Destroy Your Car's Trade-in Value

The Senate may vote soon on an amendment by Democratic senator Dick Blumenthal that would make it illegal for dealers to sell any car with an open recall. That might sound good, but there's a huge problem: many recalls are for items as trivial as a printing error in the owner's manual, and when a part is simply unavailable, there's nothing you can do about it. The Blumenthal proposal would therefore effectively make it impossible for millions of Americans - finding their cars suddenly with little or no trade-in value - to buy a new car.

Peace is Boring

In all of America's 239 years of existence, only roughly 20 of them have been without warfare of some kind. And no, those are not in a row. We've had one or two years, here and there, where we haven't spent our time bombing foreign countries, bayoneting our brothers in hopes of keeping our slaves or invading Canada (that really happened, and more than once). We are a warring people. In the 219 years we've been raging and waging, we've managed to amass the largest military in the history of gatherings where people dressed alike.
