It almost goes without saying that you can’t make treaties with such people. They can only be defeated. The question is how? And at what cost?
At the expense of spoiling all the fun, let’s get real about Dr. Ben Carson’s presidential campaign. Carson fans have been slow to grasp that their party’s presidential nominee will need the votes of millions of “blue state” Republicans historically resistant to religious zealotry.
The current Republican presidential race is less a political contest than a reality TV series: a stage-managed melodrama with a cast of characters selected to titillate and provoke.
Anonymous sources are tricky enough, but journalists simply have no business contriving dramatized scenes with dialogue and characters — describing their innermost thoughts and feelings with no attribution whatsoever. To do so is inherently deceptive.
Some people think about foreign relations the way they think about football, with the U.S. as the home team. But sometimes there aren’t any victories.
The “Freedom Caucus” not only can’t govern, they don’t appear to believe in governance. If they understood the first thing about the U.S. Constitution they profess to revere, they’d recognize that it was purposely crafted to frustrate radicals like them.
If Trey Gowdy doesn’t already know that Hillary Clinton’s a lot smarter and tougher than he is, he’s about to find out. Truthfully, they’d be better advised to fold the committee and file some weasel-worded report.
Having failed to entomb Bill Clinton and drive a wooden stake through his heart, wrecking Clinton’s candidacy has become the Washington press clique’s overriding goal.
The test of time? A conservative estimate of the amount of taxpayer treasure wasted on “investigating” Whitewater – a money-losing venture that ended years before Bill Clinton ran for president – is around $100 million.
Candidate Trump and former Governor Palin are complaining about “political correctness,” the supposedly liberal sin of being too polite to tell the unvarnished truth. Have I given offense? Oh, I do hope so.
If one were of a low and suspicious nature regarding The New York Times’ historically inept Washington Bureau, one might suspect yet another example of the “Clinton Rules” — that is, a shaky allegation unsupported by facts.
Same as it ever was. When the evidence finally emerges, it will turn out that Clinton has been diligently coloring inside the lines all along. That’s because she’s smarter and tougher than her enemies.
Millions of Republicans are seemingly enchanted by Donald Trump’s updated impersonation of Dr. Jerry Graham of the old World Wide Wrestling Federation.
Has any murdering terrorist ever failed more dramatically than Dylann Storm Roof? Intending to start a race war, he succeeded only in shocking the moral conscience of the state and nation.
The swirl of innuendo and accusation currently dogging the Clintons is nothing more than conspiracy theories touted by the same newspapers that promoted the Whitewater hoax and cheered on Kenneth Starr.
Once somebody like Tom Brady has been targeted for something like “Deflategate,” it’s almost impossible for them to get even-handed treatment in the media.
