The Tea Party is the Country’s ‘Phantom of the Opera’

Is politics imitating art? In "The Phantom of the Opera," opera singer Christine Daaé is kidnapped by the deformed, masked Eric. The most dramatic scene is when Christine rips off Eric's mask, revealing underneath the horrifying face of a rotting corpse. And so it is in 2013: independents, moderates, centrists, Democrats, moderate Republicans, traditional conservative Republicans, the Republican establishment have all now seen the underlying face of the Tea Party. And it isn't pretty.

Obama’s Uncivil America

The "new era of civility in politics" called for by President Obama after former Rep. Gabby Giffords (D-AZ) was shot, lasted about five Washington minutes. Since then Obama has adopted a scorched earth public policy in an attempt to destroy his political enemies, but sacrificing the Constitution as collateral damage.

Fukushima Sushi

Which is harder to believe? The ludicrous shenanigans going down in Washington or the fact that nobody seems particularly interested in doing anything about them? Good neighbors -- it looks like we got ourselves one heck of a bumper crop of official dysfunction this year. Near as high as Manute Bol's eye.

Obama’s Thuggish Behavior, Part II

Predictably, my column last week, which expressed my extreme displeasure at the images of World War II vets being barricaded from visiting their memorial on the National Mall, produced a flurry of reactions, both positive and negative.

Who’s to blame for the shutdown?

"DEAR COLUMNIST: I am 8 years old. Some of my little friends say the government shutdown will last a long time, America will default on its debt and our economy and the world economy will nosedive. They say conservative Republicans are bullying the America political system and economy in way that doesn't fit with how democracy is defined in my history books. My father says President Barack Obama and the Democrats started it and want the government shut down and a default. Papa says 'If you see it on Fox News, read it on a conservative website, or if ...

There’s Nothing Wrong With Standing Up For Taxpayers

It was Cory Booker's constant sneering attack in the first New Jersey U.S. Senate debate - Steve Lonegan is a "tea party leader." What does that mean?

Reasonable People Compromise

Reasonable people compromise. Unreasonable people do not. Instead, they trample over those around them to selfishly get their way. And the government is shut down this chilly October day in 2013 because unreasonable Democrats behaving like spoiled children would rather refuse treatment to terminally ill children, ravage the economy, disparage veterans and make the rest of our lives miserable -- than compromise.
