89% Sure Congress Won't Reject Iran Deal

Want to know a secret? Congress isn't going to stop the Iran nuclear deal, and not because of the merits, popularity or the fact that despite what everyone's telling you, they can't really stop it (more on that later). I can say with near certainty that the Iran deal is a done deal because that's what an overwhelming majority of D.C. insiders are betting will happen.

First Anniversary Has Me Missing Mom

I've spent the last few weeks trying to figure out how I would commemorate the first anniversary of my mother's death on August 8, 2014. I wasn't sure that I'd be able to adequately convey its significance in my altered life.

Meet Mom & Dad, the Libido Extinguishers

Displaying that tone of pretentious concern that it's made famous, the New York Times writes that as of 2014 the U.S. birthrate has declined for the sixth consecutive year. One would think the Times, of all papers, would be overjoyed by this development, since the decline means a reduction in number of little carbon producers in the future.

A Republican Sweet Sixteen... Plus One

Get to high ground everybody. Our nation is in danger of being inundated by a candidate tsunami of 17 Republicans. The Sweet Sixteen and Never Been Kissed Plus One. Seventeen Shades of Grey.

No Room for ‘Trophy’ Hunting

Minnesota dentist Walter J. Palmer has dominated the news after killing Cecil, a beloved 13-year-old Zimbabwe lion. Local celebrity Cecil was lured out of a protected national park with meat drug on a truck, shot with an arrow (but not killed) and then tracked for 40 hours before he was shot dead by a rifle. This is "trophy hunting." Cecil then was skinned and beheaded, with his remains abandoned at the park border. Evidence indicates those involved in this horror marathon also tried to destroy Cecil's tracking collar to cover their tracks.

Obama's Unilateral Surrender Foreign Policy

It's not always necessary for a nation to wave the white flag for its enemies to know it has surrendered. Sometimes a leak from an administration official will do just fine without requiring all the logistics of a formal surrender ceremony.
