I’m not sure if this meets the exact definition of irony, but it definitely meets the exact definition of insanity:
The Republican presidential contest is not, regardless of what is seems some days, all about Donald Trump. There's another dynamic unfolding that has almost nothing to do with the businessman-politician currently atop the polls but that will have a major influence on who becomes the party's nominee.
We’ve mourned too often, seen too many schools and colleges devastated by shootings, watched too many students get an education in grief. It’s time for a new approach to gun violence.
There are two problems with Peeple, a new startup app designed to let you rate everyone you meet -"like Yelp, for people."
1) The name. Peeple. This is, number one, not particularly promising. 2) People.
In the past 18 months, three government entities have concluded that the NCAA unfairly exploits college football and men’s basketball players.
Having thoroughly intimidated the rest of the Republican Party's 2016 presidential field and won a goodly number of its voters' hearts with his tough-guy persona, Donald Trump has decided to tackle their minds.
He has rolled out a plan for economic growth that professes to offer his vision of nirvana while lining the pockets of everyone from the man on Main Street to his fellow wheeler-dealers on Wall Street and in real estate.
So Donald Trump has unveiled his tax plan. It would, it turns out, lavish huge cuts on the wealthy while blowing up the deficit.
This is in contrast to Jeb Bush’s plan, which would lavish huge cuts on the wealthy while blowing up the deficit, and Marco Rubio’s plan, which would lavish huge cuts on the wealthy while blowing up the deficit.
First came the big crowds, now comes the big money. At this point, anyone who doesn't take Bernie Sanders seriously must not be paying attention.
So now we know: One of the principal reasons Republicans spent so much public money investigating the tragic Benghazi episode was to bring down Hillary Clinton's poll numbers.
Rep. Kevin McCarthy, the likely successor to House Speaker John Boehner, told Fox News' Sean Hannity explicitly on Tuesday night that the Clinton investigation was part of a "strategy to fight and win."
Even many Republicans walked away from the second 2016 debate on September 16 with the same question: "Is this really the best the Republican Party has to offer?"
