Do We Really Need To 'Rebuild The Military'

The Republican presidential debates have become so heated and filled with insults, it almost seems we are watching a pro wrestling match. There is no civility, and I wonder whether the candidates are about to come to blows. But despite what appears to be total disagreement among them, there is one area where they all agree.

Quitting the GOP

John-William Schiffbauer is what Republicans, at least on paper, say they want their party to look more like. He's 31-years-old (a coveted millennial), socially liberal, fiscally conservative and not totally white. "My grandmother was from Japan," he says. He's a New York City playwright who's into cool whiskey bars and heated policy debates. He sees himself as what the future of the Republican Party ought to be. "Did you read the GOP post-2012 autopsy report? The 'Growth and Opportunity Project,' as it was dubbed?" He asks.

We Can Trust the FBI, Right?

This huge brouhaha between the FBI and Apple has escalated into a battle royale between the righteous and the wicked. And, as often happens, both sides are claiming to be on the side of the angels. With so many good guys in attendance, it's amazing that world-wide badness is still so pervasive. But you can't blame television for everything.

The Hillary Paradox

In 1992, Hillary Clinton was derided as an extreme feminazi vying for all the power the White House could offer her as First Lady. A reporter from Columbus, Ohio famously asked her, "You know, some people think of you as an inspiring female attorney mother, and other people think of you as the overbearing yuppie wife from hell.
