Can Donald Close the Deal in Cleveland?

Thanks to Ted Cruz's primary win in Wisconsin, it's now all but certain the Republican convention is going to be contested.

The Rising Odds of Republican Chaos

How screwed up are the Republicans? Just read the Wisconsin primary exit polls. It doesn't bode well for November when a huge chunk of the GOP electorate says it won't support its own presidential nominee.

50 Years Later, We've Learned Nothing From Vietnam

Last week Defense Secretary Ashton Carter laid a wreath at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington in commemoration of the "50th anniversary" of that war. The date is confusing, as the war started earlier and ended far later than 1966. But the Vietnam War at 50 commemoration presents a good opportunity to reflect on the war and whether we have learned anything from it.

Is This the End of Trump?

Go ahead, exhale a deep sigh of relief because our long national nightmare could very well be over. Yes, dear friends, Donald Trump might have bitten off more than he can chew and we may be mere moments away from combing him out of our hair for good. Then throw away the comb.

Declaration of Genocide is a Big, Fat, Juicy Nothing Burger

Words matter. Especially words, which when spoken can save lives. But without action, words are empty...worthless...meaningless, especially when we're talking about genocide.

Trump's Aide Was Wrong, But It's Not Abuse

It's no secret I detest Donald Trump. The thing that repels me most is the arrogance and bellicosity he inspires in his followers. It's hardly unprecedented, but this year is particularly vicious, distasteful and garbage-strewn, given the added narcissism fueled by social media.

Baseball's New Gimmicks Won't Win Over Younger Viewers

The new baseball season has its usual quotient of obnoxious on-field innovations, such as the time clock that will now govern visits by managers and coaches to the pitcher's mound. Like most fiddling with our Great American Pastime, the motivating force is the television audience, specifically younger viewers who are not embracing the sport.

Would You Hire Someone To Break Up With Your Lover?

I'm guessing my late father felt more empathy for me than he let on, back in 1981 when my girlfriend unceremoniously broke up with me.

Trump's Just Winging It, and That Should Scare Everyone

What's important to remember about Donald Trump is that our aspiring tinpot despot is wildly winging his presidential campaign. It's like he's the star of his own improv show.

End Unauthorized Federal Spending

The federal government is scheduled to spend $310 billion of your tax dollars this year on federal programs that are not authorized by law according to the Congressional Budget Office. That's about a quarter of all so-called discretionary spending, so one of every four taxpayer dollars Congress spends is going to a program that is legally expired.

Trump's Mama Is So Fat...

How low can a presidential campaign go? In 2016, the answer to that question is find a snake belly and dig. Lower than the vertical zinc mines of Atlantis. This particular crew of candidates dived so deep in their race to the bottom, the plastic iPhone cases of staffers are melting due to the heat emanating from the core of the earth.
