Modern Men Need to Embrace Their Dads and Granddads

The state of the American male is in shambles, and I cite three pieces of evidence as proof:

Bill Cosby and Due Process

Prosecutions are like snowflakes, no two the same. Sometimes, you have a low-profile drunken-driving case where the defendant is a first-time offender, the district attorney is willing to offer a plea deal, and no one except the parties involved will ever know about it.

Bill Clinton's Sexual History? Really? Again?

Donald Trump is out of his mind (nothing new there) if he really thinks that he can taint Hillary Clinton by recycling her husband's infidelities. How can he, or any other Republican, hope to gain traction in 2016 with a tactic that backfired so abysmally in the last century?

Talking Race in the Cookbook Aisle

I am very rarely recognized in public, but the other day a gentleman named Sonny stopped me in the aisle at Barnes and Noble and said "Hey TV lady." Sonny wasn't looking for an autograph, or polite banter. He launched right into a conversation about race.

Christie, ISIS and Other 2016 Predictions

At the beginning of a new year, cultures all over the world traditionally perform peculiar ceremonies meant to wipe the slate clean and start afresh. The Chinese hide knives to ward off danger. In Denmark, old dishes are thrown at front doors to symbolize the collection of new friends. Spanish residents eat 12 grapes, one at each stroke of the clock to promote good fortune. And in the Durst household, we percolate sardonically cynical predictions for the upcoming 12 months.

2016: What To Expect

It's hard to believe, but we're on the brink of another presidential election year. Let us pray. Every quadrennial, the American political process plays out as a big-top carnival sideshow featuring moral contortionists, ethical geeks and fat sweaty white guys teetering on slack media wires.

The Free Speech Silver Lining in the Budget Cloud

The massive omnibus package of tax and spending changes recently passed by Congress was mostly a defeat for free-market economics. It extended expensive giveaways for the wind and solar industries, allowed President Obama to fund his Paris climate agreement, funded the president's aggressive regulatory agenda, and even green-lit his IMF reform.

Instead of another depressing rant on how the political class is selling us down the river, I'm offering practical advice this week on how to remain in the wife's good graces and still get to watch all the football you want on Christmas or New Year's Day.
