Time to Lead from the Middle

Someone once said, history repeats itself because no one was listening the first time. All one needs to do is look at the ever-widening ideological divide and partisan bickering going on in America to understand Americans are slow learners. And, unless a Lincolnesque figure rises to the occasion, America is headed for another Civil War sans the bloodshed.

When the 12th man leaves before the game is done...

"Support your team, even when it loses. A true fan sticks with their team through good times and bad. It's a sad sight to see the bleachers empty at a stadium 10 minutes before a game is over just because the home team is losing. Stick around until the end and root your team off the field."

Confessions of a Political Junkie

My wife looked grief-stricken when I walked into the kitchen this morning. She was staring at her computer screen, and I worried that she'd received an email about a death in the family, or worse, that the Boston Red Sox had re-hired Bobby Valentine.

America Doesn’t Have a Pro-Life Political Party

More than 39 years after Roe v. Wade, the pro-life movement has reached a nadir. Despite the fact that over half the country self-identifies as "pro-life," little tangible progress has been made in the fight against abortion. This is due to both the pro-life movement's failure to be a consistent defender of human dignity across a broader range of issues and to its increasingly close association with the Republican Party.

Choose Success

Everybody talks about the middle class being hurt in the Obama economy, but it's really the working poor who are getting crushed.

To Tell the Truth

Watching the recent Obama/Romney debate brought to mind a YouTube video I saw of an old TV game show called "To Tell the Truth" where the emcee began by welcoming the audience "to our game of deliberate misrepresentation...."

An Interview with Big Bird

A butler opens the door of the large Sesame Street brownstone and guides me to the parlor. Big Bird is sitting on a large couch, wearing a silk smoking jacket, holding a bourbon and enjoying a drag on what appears to be an unfiltered Camel cigarette.

Ringside at the Undercard

Needed three towels to wipe down my living room after the vice presidential wrestling match, er, debate the other day. The sweat flung off both the bottom names of the campaign bumper stickers was so thick on the Centre College stage, it shot right through television screens onto viewers at home.

I received an unexpected postcard in the mail the other day from an old friend. It made my day.

End Oil Protectionism

The politics of the crude exports issue are confused by a lot of irresponsible reporting. Almost every story on the issue asserts that allowing exports would be politically dangerous because it would supposedly raise prices at the pump, but the claim is never credibly sourced. In fact, every single serious study has found precisely the opposite: allowing crude exports would lower prices at the pump.

On Elizabeth Warren, the Bright Shiny Object

Elizabeth Warren continues to bedazzle people precisely because she's not running for president. If she were to actually run for president, her power to bedazzle would diminish in a flash. To quote the sage Bob Dylan, "What looks large from a distance, close up ain't never that big."

Lessons from Paris

After the tragic shooting at a provocative magazine in Paris last week, I pointed out that given the foreign policy positions of France we must consider blowback as a factor. Those who do not understand blowback made the ridiculous claim that I was excusing the attack or even blaming the victims. Not at all, as I abhor the initiation of force. The police blaming victims when they search for the motive of a criminal.
