Why the Small Stuff Will Matter With Scott Walker

Scott Walker

Likely Republican presidential candidate Scott Walker has been getting a lot of attention lately. Much of it has been good, including his rising popularity in national polls, a close second-place finish in the CPAC straw poll last weekend, and taking first place in a recent Quinnipiac poll of Iowa caucus-goers.

Who Do You Believe: Kerry or Clapper?

Good news, everybody! We’re safer today than ever before.  And by “ever before” I mean anytime since the beginning of time. So relax. Breathe easy.

Blood in the Water, Sharks Circling … and Brian Williams

Try to imagine that Letterman or Kimmel or Fallon asks me to be a guest on their late night show and the first question is: “What did you do before you went into journalism, Bernie?” Now imagine that I say: “Well, Dave (or Jimmy) I played centerfield for the New York Yankees; I hit 536…
