Bush and Clinton Dynasties Hit Trump Bump

    Pity Poppy.

    When I went down to Houston a few years ago to eat pizza with the former president, he was his usual gracious self, speaking fondly about President Barack Obama and his new pal Bill Clinton.

Are There No Boundaries?

    Isn't there anything that the Republicans will draw the line on? Ethics appears to be an unknown concept.

    It has been obvious for a long time that they would do anything to undermine the duly elected President of this nation, but we did expect that the idea of peace would have some appeal. Perhaps not peace alone; but some restraints on the development of those horrible weapons that, thus far, we are the only nation to ever have used.

Trump urges GOP toward anti-immigration death wish

    Donald Trump is fast becoming a sort of villainous Pied Piper, tooting the 2016 Republican presidential mice behind him over a precipice to political suicide.

    Despite warnings after the party's 2012 defeat that it must court the burgeoning Hispanic vote or face eventual oblivion, Trump has captured its campaign agenda with a brutal assault on undocumented immigrants from south of the border.

The Tesla Cheerleader

    Do you remember when Henry Blodget first became famous?

    No, it wasn’t when the then-New York attorney general, Eliot Spitzer, unearthed those notorious emails Blodget wrote as Merrill Lynch’s Internet analyst, the ones in which he privately disparaged companies he was publicly touting. That came later.

Denial won't defeat Trump

    I know you haven't heard enough about Donald Trump recently, so here's more: At this point, anyone who says he can't win the Republican nomination is in deep denial.

Trump's video game mastery

    This summer's political madness was nicely captured by a confluence of events over the last few days: While global financial markets teetered, the campaign news was dominated by Donald Trump's personal feuds with journalists.

Trump selling deficit spending to conservatives

    Which presidential candidate would be the biggest budget-buster? Bernie Sanders, the welfare-state socialist? Hillary Clinton, the activist-government Democrat? Any of a passel of no-new-taxes Republicans? Nope. It's the self-styled arch-conservative, Donald Trump.

The Odd Politics of Fighting Wildfires

    As wildfires plague much of the American West, one must ask, Who is paying to put them out? The answer is largely the American taxpayer.

The next debate topic

    In a few weeks, the Republicans will hold their second presidential debate, and if it's anything like the first, it's bound to be a doozy. The continued ascent of Donald Trump, and his unmitigated displays of ego, id, racism and sexism, guarantee a viewership many times larger than what a "normal" intraparty debate 14 months before the general election would draw.
