You Knew

October 9, 2016

[W]hy should I write on this topic when Jeffrey Young of Huffington Post has crafted such a masterful piece already? The Republican establishment has knowingly promoted a monster to the public as worthy of the most powerful position on Earth. With the latest revelations of his perversity, immaturity and sociopathy many Republican politicians are feigning […]

Totally Lacking Judgment

September 16, 2016

[H]ow obvious can Donald Trump’s lack of judgment can be? Total. For years he has famously led the tin hats of the conspiracy theory that Obama was born in Kenya.

The Wrong Lessons

November 5, 2010

The Democrats will learn the wrong lessons from the election. The Republicans will learn the wrong lessons from the election. How can I say that?
