Hubris could impact both parties in 2012

One day in 1981 when I was a reporter for the Wichita Eagle-Beacon in Kansas, an assistant city editor who was notoriously into office politics pointed towards the city desk.

Department of Homeland Security: What is it Good For

Late Friday night, Congress passed legislation funding the Department of Homeland Security for one week. This vote followed weeks of debate over efforts to attach a prohibition on funding President Obama's executive order granting amnesty to certain illegal immigrants to the Homeland Security funding bill.

Giuliani a Reflection of Everyday Republicans

Things have gone quiet about former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani's widely denounced comments about President Barack Obama, but that doesn't mean the controversy is history.

To Defeat ISIS, Win the Peace

After huddling with his war council in Kuwait, Defense Secretary Ash Carter says we've got the "ingredients of the strategy" to achieve a "lasting defeat" over ISIS. Some Senate Republicans claim that ISIS is going to kill us all in our sleep even as the U.S.-led coalition has the Islamic State forces playing defense for a change, but killing bad guys is the relatively easy part. As we learned in Iraq and Afghanistan, the hard part is to win a peace that can last, and the strategy Carter outlined last week seems like a smart way to ...

Message. Message. Who's Got the Message?

Don't look now, but the Democratic Party is undergoing an identity crisis of such monumental proportions, the Dissociative Identity Disorder people have called and are requesting artifacts for their Hall of Fame. They're going to put Obama's basketball hoop right next to Sally Field's purple crayon.

Secret Benefits to Stupid Comments

An offensively stupid comment by influential and presumably smart people sometimes brings awareness to a subject that would otherwise be largely ignored.

Olbermann: The Once and Former King

Keith Olbermann should be used to this by now. Two-bit, Class B second tier provocateurs can't be terribly surprised when they're disciplined for the umpteenth time. They thrive on reaction, court controversy and have a masterful way of turning justified castigation into unjustified persecution. Among this motley crew of the mediocre, Olbermann used to be king.

Justice Selection

Some members of the legislative and executive branches of Kansas government have publicly expressed their admiration for many "things Texan." For example, they acclaim Governor Rick Perry's conservative leadership and praise Texas' lack of a state income tax. Their high regard for our southerly neighbor may explain why our legislature is considering whether Kansas should switch to Texas' system for selecting Supreme Court justices. Texas procures justices through statewide elections.

Interventionism Kills: Ukraine One Year Later

It was one year ago last weekend that a violent coup overthrew the legally elected government of Ukraine. That coup was not only supported by U.S. and European governments -- much of it was actually planned by them. Looking back at the events that led to the overthrow it is clear that without foreign intervention Ukraine would not be in its current, seemingly hopeless situation.

Time for a Real Conversation About War

My oldest son is handsome, smart, and, in the words of my old boss Ann Richards, very nearly perfect. I love him boundlessly, so it hurts me to know that his homeland has been at war for every single day of his life except for a few months in 2001 when he couldn't yet crawl. Now he's shaving, and for the first time in his life he might get to witness a real discussion about going to war.
