The Royals Parade: A report from the front lines

The Royals had their victory parade on Tuesday. If you know nothing about this event, you: A. never found the most obscure cable channel ever created, Fox Sports 1; B. traded your AM radio for a weather radio, which is amazing at warning about hurricanes and tornadoes but nothing else; or C. you just returned from a trip to the International Space Station and have some catching up to do.

Click to ‘Like’ Ben Carson

Facebook is a little bit like "Lord of the Flies," without the exotic island locale. It's a place where people can gang up on you in a virtual lynch mob if you stray from the communal orthodoxy, and they use the "like" button as rope. You have two choices: be shamed into submission or slink away on a life raft.

What's the Beef?

The World Health Organization is the United Nations' public-health arm. I think we should change its name to the World Killjoy Organization - at least where its position on meat eating is concerned.

Who Wouldn't Want This Job?

It's like a train wreck. Fascinating, repellant, and loud, all at the same time. Talking about the American presidential sweepstakes. And, as ratings for the last few debates seem to indicate, very hard to look away. It was Winston Churchill who called our election process, "a circus wrapped in a game show covered in poisonous weasel glitter." And if he didn't, he should have.

How Many Betrayals Before the GOP Base Revolts

If the Democrat establishment operated like the Republican establishment, the most important advantage Hillary Clinton gains from avoiding a shotgun primary with Joe Biden is the ability to start flip-flopping early in an attempt to attract Republicans.

A New Planned Parenthood Committee!

Fresh from their triumphant deep dive into Benghazi, House Republicans have announced Friday they've created another Special committee, this time to - of course - Planned Parenthood. I kid you not! And since the 2016 election is so clearly on their minds, perhaps they'll summon their favorite star witness. Just imagine...

No Sugarcoating Paul Ryan's History on Immigration

Paul Ryan stands in the news once again. This time, attention is centered on his quest to become U.S. House Speaker. Two years ago, he stood somewhere else; with fellow congressman Luis Gutierrez at a Chicago rally.

A Small But Real IRS Reform That Must Pass

President Obama's Department of Justice has made it official: Lois Lerner, the IRS executive who invoked the Fifth Amendment to avoid incriminating herself when questioned about her role in targeting conservative groups, will face no criminal charges. Worse, even the one IRS reform that enjoys broad bipartisan support in Congress - a ban on the IRS trying to assess gift tax on contributions to non-profit organizations, which they infamously attempted against conservative donors - has stalled in the Senate after passing the House unanimously early in the year. It should be included in one of the must-pass bills expected to pass ...

Missing the Real Problem on Benghazi

Last week the U.S. House of Representatives called former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to appear before a select committee looking into the attack on a US facility in Benghazi, Libya, in 2012. The attack left four Americans dead, including U.S. Ambassador to Libya, Chris Stevens.

Benghazi Game Lost Before it Began

Here's some free advice for congressional Republicans. If you don't want to make it seem like you're focusing on Hillary Clinton, it's a bad idea to put her in front of television cameras for 11 hours. The Benghazi hearing was a failure as both a show trial and as an example of representative democracy, succeeding only as a showcase for a woman of epic patience if nothing else.
