Lewis’ District Is Rather Sad

 

Throughout the years Rep. John Lewis has repeatedly leveled scurrilous accusations against Republicans who might resist the liberal agenda. And all along, Lewis has been shielded from retaliatory criticism by both his race and his 1960’s record of civil rights activism. Until now. This past week began Lewis grandstanding at the Jeff Sessions confirmation hearings […]

What If John Lewis Was a Republican?

 

The irony of when everyone gets treated the same! John Lewis decides to not just go up against Donald Trump, which would be 100 percent okay, as opposition is, but a sitting Congressman calling the President-elect an illegitimate President? I’m not going to go with the obvious and say: “What if a Republican had said […]

‘Take My Wife’ Is Out

 

“I know you guys may be angry with me, but I’m used to it because I have a black wife and three mixed kids, so I’m used to people being angry and argumentative.” With those 33 words, which probably took less than 20 seconds to utter, Atlanta Hawks General Manager Wes Wilcox’s reputation has been […]

T-Rex Stumbles on the Nine-Dash Line

 

Parading through their confirmation hearings, President-elect Trump’s nominees for the highest cabinet positions proved their minds somewhat independent of his. Which, of course, led to headlines like the one in Financial Times that said, “Clash of views in Trump cabinet sets stage for policy confusion.” Differences aplenty there were but mostly in contradiction of Trump’s […]

For Supreme Court, No Moore Grudges, Please

 

It is said that conservatives, like elephants, never forget — and apparently some of them never forgive, either. For very good reason, conservative 11th Circuit Court of Appeals Judge William Pryor is reportedly on President-elect Trump’s short list for a Supreme Court nomination. Strangely, some of the fiercest opposition to Pryor comes from a small […]

Obama: Rush Limbaugh Made Me Fail

 

The headline on Mediaite said it all: Obama: Limbaugh, Fox Helped Create Environment for Republicans Refusing to Work With Me The story began thusly, bold print for emphasis supplied: In tonight’s NBC Dateline special, as President Obama tonight discussed his frustrations with Republicans for not being more willing to work with him over the past […]

The Exorcism of Obamacare From the Body Politic

 

If you were astonished by the egregious antics of congressional Democrats during the recent procedural votes that started Obamacare down the path to perdition, you should reread The Exorcist, in which William Peter Blatty vividly describes just such head spinning, vomit-spewing, and gratuitous execration. This isn’t the last time you’ll see the Democrats reenacting the […]

The Sad Case of John Lewis

 

For Georgia Congressman John Lewis it is, and always will be, 1965. He’s too emotionally invested in it to let it go. He’s Horatio at the Selma Bridge. Jim Crow stalks the South. Bull Connor is still police chief in Birmingham. Lester Maddox is still passing out axe handles. There’s much banging on now among […]

Dr. Scott Gottlieb For FDA Commissioner

 

The two leading candidates to head the Food and Drug Administration under Donald Trump are Jim O’Neill and Dr. Scott Gottlieb.  O’Neill has an impressive background, having served as an investment advisor in a number of Peter Thiel’s businesses and previously worked at the Dept. of Health and Human Services.  But if Trump is serious […]
