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.

April 14, 2017
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 McConnell and Putin

Danziger: Russian Dressing Down

Having spent the past many years doing maximum possible damage to American democracy, it’s easy to imagine — as Danziger does — that Mitch McConnell would resent the Kremlin butting in. That must be why he kept the Russian hacking a secret last year.

April 10, 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?

April 8, 2017
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 Comey as Columbo

Danziger: A Few Loose Ends To Tie Up

Did the Trump campaign collude illegally with its Kremlin supporters both before and after Election Day 2016? There is much circumstantial evidence but no proof, as the suspects constantly insist. As Danziger suggests, this is a perfect case for someone like that old TV detective, Inspector Columbo, who specialized in locking up wealthy, immoral, arrogant criminals.

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.

Danziger's waterfall

Danziger: Going Down!

The crashing chaos and nonstop prevarications of the Trump administration require fresh literary interpretation every day by journalists and cartoonists. Resorting to the waterfall metaphor, Danziger is no exception.
