On the Supreme Court, Democrats Simply Lost

When Senate Republicans decided last year to ditch their constitutional duty - by stiffing President Obama's eminently qualified Supreme Court nominee, denying him even the courtesy of a hearing - they took a big political risk. They gambled that the voters wouldn't punish them on election day.

Ordering Dinner With a Side of Sanctimony

A nationwide group of restaurants is now offering diners a chance to stick it to the man while simultaneously putting the fork to their tofu. Those of you who've wanted to join a great moral crusade, but never got around to cleaning up the basement and inviting a Syrian "refugee" to move in, can now eat locally and be served globally.
