Danziger: If The Shoe Fits

With Bill O’Reilly’s departure, his big grimy boots are being filled by Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson — whom Danziger doesn’t seem to consider a great improvement.

Danziger on health care

Danziger: It May Kill You First

Danziger is looking forward to the next iteration of the Republican replacement for Obamacare — although it can hardly be as much fun as the last one.

Danziger on deported Dreamer

Danziger: What Happens To A Dream Deported?

Danziger knows that ever since Donald Trump vowed not to deport the immigrant “dreamers” protected by Deferred Action of Childhood Arrival — as he did — they were inevitably doomed. Now one of them has alleged that he was deported last February, and is suing the Trump administration in federal court. And he judge who will hear his case? Gonzalo Curiel, calm and cool target of a racist verbal assault by Trump last year.

Danziger on deepest kimchi

Danziger: We’re In Deepest Kimchi

When Donald Trump sends Mike Pence to deal with the North Korean nuclear threat, Danziger worries — and it’s impossible not to worry about these ill-informed weenies in control of the world’s security.

Danziger on O'Reilly

Danziger: That’s A Lot Of Hail Marys

Abandoned by advertisers shunning his sexual harassment cooties, Fox News personality Bill O’Reilly is on “vacation” — and Danziger sees him at the Vatican, seeking absolution for his sins. That’s a lot of Hail Marys.

danziger law and order

Danziger: That Good Ole Law ‘N Order

Why would Danziger suspect that Jeff Sessions, who has sworn to uphold the Constitution, would wink at police beatings of unarmed citizens? Perhaps because the Attorney General instantly set to work subverting every effort to reform local police misconduct. That’s why.

Danziger on NATO obsolete

Danziger: The Art Of The Deal Redux

Danziger can’t help but notice that in his latest flip-flopping pronouncement about NATO — it’s “no longer obsolete” — he sounds like a used-car salesman touting a rusted-out vehicle. The western military alliance may not deserve that comparison, but he does.

Danziger on Scots and Brexit

Danziger: The Wee Sheepies Hate Brexit

So fed up are the Scots with Britain’s exit from the European Union that they’re mulling their own “Brexit” — and as Danziger points out, their wee sheepies are sure to follow.

danziger on bannon ouster

Danziger: Leaving So Soon?

Like everyone else, Danziger has heard those rumors about the imminent ouster of Steve Bannon, Trump “chief strategist” and fascist wannabe — who has picked an unwinnable fight with the President’s family. What kind of strategist does that?

April 12, 2017
Danziger on War and kushner

Danziger: The Best And The Brightest

Following Trump’s military strike on a Syrian airbase, his clownish administration has taken us to the brink of war — with the wise counsel, as Danziger observes, of his Harvard-educated son-in-law Jared Kushner. Doesn’t that make you feel safer?

danziger on the nuclear option

Danziger: They Bombed The Senate To Save It

Like everyone else who isn’t a politician, Danziger is bemused by the Senate Republicans’ decision to further curtail the traditional filibuster — the “nuclear option” they piously profess to regret, because it will permanently diminish the institution. But extreme partisanship now trumps any such truly conservative qualms.

Danziger trump is nuts

Danziger: His Mental Health Is Classified

One reason government officials classify information as top secret is to hide it from their own citizens, not the enemy intelligence services that already know it. And as Danziger indicates, the most troubling open secret in Washington today is the psychological condition of the commander-in-chief.

Danziger on Kiev shooting

Danziger: With Extreme Prejudice

Last week Denis Voronenkov, a former Russian legislator, found out that criticizing Vladimir Putin and his friends is a very unhealthy activity. As noted by Danziger, a gunman shot Voronenkov on the street in Kiev, Ukraine, just days before he was scheduled to testify against Viktor Yanukovych (the ex-president of Ukraine and Putin puppet who employed Trump campaign chair Paul Manafort). Voronenkov is the latest in a series of Russian legislators, diplomats, and other officials to die more or less mysteriously abroad over the past several months. Next semester, the Russian studies curriculum will include screenings of The Godfather.

Danziger enjoys Republicans boxing each other

Danziger: How Do We Know When To Cheer?

Two angry elephants pounding each other in the ring – one named Paul, the other pompously calling himself “Freedom.” Like Danziger, we’re rooting for the ref.

Danziger on Trump's threats against Republicans who vote no

Danziger: The Art Of The (Trumpcare) Deal

Donald Trump always presents himself as a tough guy, so Danziger isn’t surprised by reports of presidential threats against House Republicans who have declined — for varying reasons — to line up behind his Obamacare repeal push. Nearly three dozen of them seem poised to call Trump’s bluff.

March 23, 2017
Danziger on Mattis and global warming

Danziger: The Perfectly Sane ‘Mad Dog’

Next to all the unqualified and unappetizing kooks in the Trump cabinet, Secretary of Defense James Mattis is eminently level-headed and, as Danziger notes, he understands that the most frightening threat to national security is not China or even Russia, but climate change.

Danziger warns French not to reject Dutch example

Danziger: That French Paradox

A nation that has given the world some of its greatest art, literature, philosophy, culture, cuisine, and couture now seems poised to endorse fascist politics — but only, warns Danziger, if the French are too foolish to follow the saner example set by the Dutch.

Danziger draws "War"

Danziger: The Draft Dodger’s Budget

Everyone knows that Trump evaded the Vietnam draft due to alleged “bone spurs” in his heels — and no doubt Danziger, a Vietnam vet, scorns the president’s militaristic overcompensation. His absurd budget would fatten “War,” drawn in the style of the late great Herblock, and flatten “Diplomacy,” which helps keep our kids in uniform from getting killed.

Danziger on Scottish anger over Brexit

Danziger: Turning The Caber On Brexit

Now that British Prime Minister Theresa May has begun the process that will conclude in her country’s exit from the European Union, Danziger notes that the Scots are again contemplating their own exit from the United Kingdom — a turn of the caber that London won’t applaud.
