The Best Talking Heads Lean Right

If the GOP's presidential candidates were half as persuasive as its conservative commentators, the party would have a much easier time winning elections.

Obama Confesses to Pope Francis

"Your Holiness, I have never been to Catholic confession before, but since you and I have some things in common, I figure what the heck."

Congress and the Fed Refuse to Learn From Their Mistakes

This month marks the seventh anniversary of the bursting of the housing bubble and the subsequent economic meltdown. The mood in Congress following the meltdown resembled the panicked atmosphere that followed the September 11th attacks. As was the case after September 11th, Congress rushed to pass hastily written legislation that, instead of dealing with the real causes of the crisis, simply gave the government more power.

American Politics: Disagreeing to Agree

According to a Pew Research Center poll in 2010, nearly 123 million Americans (41 percent) believe the Rapture will happen before 2050. I bring this up because the first supermoon lunar eclipse in 30 years will happen on Sunday, September 27, 2015. If you're reading this column after then, it's safe to assume it wasn't the end of the world. Also, if you're reading this column before then, well, it's also safe to assume the moon appearing weird to us in the night sky is more of a sign of our lack of perspective than ...

If a sport can make my bookworm wife raise her eyebrows and keep an open mind, it must really have potential.

Dead Man Walker's Urgent Plea to the GOP

Nine weeks ago, when alleged conservative wunderkind Scott Walker was riding high, I rightly dismissed him as "a clueless newbie unfit to lead." But I never imagined that he'd suffer such a precipitous flameout.

Don't Let Hillary Shift Blame for Obamacare's Failures

Health insurance premiums are rising because of Obamacare. And there is still one year left of the assorted reinsurance programs designed to mask premium increases, suggesting next year's jumps will be even more eye-popping. That's a political and logistical disaster for the Democrats who wrote the law and tied their political fortunes to its success. But rather than admit their law is too restrictive and come to the table to negotiate bipartisan reforms, Democrats and their insurance industry allies have decided on a cynical strategy: scapegoating drug companies.

The Cause of High College Tuition

Ah, the autumn is upon us. College campuses are buzzing with activity - as college kids and their parents rack up massive debt to cover the cost of high tuition.

The Zany Side of the GOP Debates

To the one thirteenth of all Americans who watched the latest GOP debate, congratulations on surviving the political equivalent of the 24 hours of Le Mans. You just climbed Campaign Everest. Strapped to a pair of debates. Or to be more precise; a pair of mind-numbing, marathon, four and a half hour, endurance-test, butt-fall-asleep debates.

Blame America? No, Blame Neocons!

Is the current refugee crisis gripping the European Union "all America's fault"? That is how my critique of U.S. foreign policy was characterized in a recent interview on the Fox Business Channel. I do not blame the host for making this claim, but I think it is important to clarify the point.

How the Marines Wasted $36 Million

The Marine Corps just spent $36 million to learn that an average-sized woman is not as big and strong as an average-sized man. I'm as shocked as you are. This misuse of your money was part of a nine-month experiment by the Marines to argue against allowing female Marines to serve in the combat infantry. Instead of proving their point, however, all they showed is why the only standard for combat positions should be whether someone can do the job.

Can Joe Biden Save the Day for Dems?

Democrats are bailing on scandal-plagued Hillary Clinton, and the big Democratic Party money can't possibly be enthusiastic about socialist Bernie Sanders.
