Where Has THIS Trump Been?


The political world is all atwitter following Donald Trump’s statement last Thursday in Charlotte, North Carolina that, “believe it or not,” he regrets having said “the wrong thing” in the past, “particularly where it may have caused personal pain,” a list which might include Heidi Cruz, Megyn Kelly, and Ghazala Khan. I was less astonished […]

Boulder Says White People Suck


Boulder, Colorado has plenty of city parks with boring names. Foothills Community Park, Bluff Park, and Pineview Park come to mind. So when the Boulder Human Relations Commission — itself a caricature of Boulder’s PC culture — decided to rename Columbus Day as “Indigenous Peoples’ Day” and, as part of the exercise, to rename a […]

Keeping His Own Counsel


In 2016, there are few people with more relevant political experience than Dana Perino, former Bush administration press secretary and current co-host of The Five on Fox News. Add her remarkably kind personality and you have someone who could be a tremendous asset to a presidential candidate who is willing to listen. Yet when she […]

My Friend Jerry Doyle


“So how many times have you hiked Red Rocks, Jerry?” I asked. He laughed, exhaling a puff of smoke from a near ever-present cigarette, the only vice which seemed to remain in his life (other than his choices in women), and said, still chuckling, in his unique and recognizable low baritone, “Ummm… never?” “Well,” I […]

I Feel for Melania Trump


I feel for Melania Trump. She was poised and beautiful in delivering her Monday night speech in support of her husband’s presidential aspirations. And then her Biden moment — it was found out, as it inevitably would have been — that part of her speech was taken, nearly verbatim, from a 2008 speech given by […]

Comey’s Carelessness With Common Sense


As I watch FBI Director James Comey respond to members of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, even as I attempt to correct for my fear and loathing of Hillary Rodham Clinton, the “nothing to see here” approach of the Democratic members of the committee is shocking. Or at least it would be shocking […]

Declarations of Independence


A personal note: On Thursday morning, I had the opportunity to interview Delaney Henderson, a remarkable and courageous young woman who recently made national headlines with an open letter to the still-anonymous Stanford rape victim. The letter was informed by Delaney having suffered through a similar experience when she was 16 years old. It was […]

Trump Is Wrong


My good friend Jeff Lord has in recent days been valiantly trying to justify Donald Trump’s verbal assault — somewhat walked back on Tuesday after pressure from RNC Chairman Reince Priebus — on Gonzalo Curiel, the judge in the Trump University fraud case. One need not have an opinion on the merits of the case […]

Romney Results Bode Poorly for Trump


Could even a corrupt Hillary win on “cares about people like me”? For one primary reason, Mitt Romney was, in the 2012 presidential election, the worst possible choice out of the several most credible Republican hopefuls to challenge President Barack Obama’s re-election: Obamacare should have been the defining issue of that campaign but Romney was singularly […]

Negotiating With Myself


Is this the kind of back and forth many a voter is having these days? Perhaps I’m in need of some medication, but it seems that nearly every day of this political season I hear these dueling voices in my head: Anti-Trump: I just don’t see how I can, in good conscience, vote for Donald Trump. […]
