Trump’s Debate Opportunity


As usual, Donald Trump’s approach to news is non-traditional: Saying that the Tulsa police officer who shot and killed Terence Crutcher may have “choked,” as if she missed a free throw in the NBA playoffs, isn’t exactly how most people would put it. After all, choking doesn’t normally earn one a charge of felony first-degree […]

Colin Powell’s Worst Insult of All


In a bushel of Colin Powell’s private emails released by a website thought to have connections to Russian intelligence, the former secretary of state and chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff excoriates Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump as a racist “know-nothing” and a “national disgrace and international pariah.” Yawn. This from the “Republican” who […]

Colin Powell’s Outrageous Behavior Is Not a Clinton Defense


Liberals are gleefully parading around what purports to be an e-mail from former Secretary of State Colin Powell to then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. (At least we think this was sent while she was in office, or else very shortly before taking office.) In it, Powell basically cops to violation of both government policy and […]

Way Beyond a Double Standard


Consider the following entirely plausible news cycles: Following the killing of 28-year old Lakeesha Taylor in gang crossfire as she was pushing her 4-year-old daughter on a swing in Detroit’s dangerous Precinct 9, former Michigan governor (and current Hillary Clinton surrogate) Jennifer Granholm (D) posted a message on Facebook: “Michigan’s serious problems will never improve […]

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 […]
