Does Michelle Obama Think Short People Are Racists?

A few years ago, First Lady Michelle Obama was a guest on David Letterman’s show. She told a humorous story that night about a trip she had taken to a Target store. Dressed somewhat in disguise in hopes of avoiding detection and drawing a crowd, she shopped the aisles until one of the other shoppers…

What is the Responsibility of a Journalist?

hume

Last week, I was perusing Twitter when I stumbled across a brief but interesting conversation between two nationally-known news figures. Ron Fournier, National Journal columnist and frequent member of Fox News’ Special Report panel, wrote that he was taping a quote from Marty Kaiser, a newsman from the Pulitzer Prize-winning Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, to his…

Frustrated Journalist: Dems Should Abandon ‘Prejudice-Infested’ South

Michael Tomasky

Last week, U.S. Senator Mary Landrieu from Louisiana was defeated in a runoff election by Republican candidate, Bill Cassidy. Landrieu was the last remaining Democratic senator from the Deep South – a region that the Democratic Party dominated for much of the 20th century.

When Barack Obama won the presidency in 2008, I was not a happy camper.

Who exactly is Jonathan Gruber, that mysterious MIT professor that most of us were first introduced to last week through videos of him gloating over the “stupidity” of American voters for not understanding that they were being conned into supporting Obamacare? He sure seems like an important person. He was, after all, an architect of…

Obamacare Architect: Stupid Americans Let Us Pass the Law

Gruber-Daly

Soon after President Obama was elected to a second term in office in 2012, I wrote a column for this website entitled, “How Can Obama Respect an Electorate That Would Re-Elect Him?” The piece presented the argument that the majority of the country, at the time, chose not to factor the president’s job performance (during…

Republican Election Wave? Cancel the Midterms!

Cancel the midterms

Tomorrow is election day, and if the polls and early ballot returns are of any indication, it appears it will be a good night for the Republican Party. National media outlets are estimating that there’s a very good likelihood that the GOP will take control of the U.S. Senate. The Washington Post puts those chances…
