In "A Love That Multiplies," Michelle Duggar recounts a story that her husband told his older children "to explain the importance of purity."
U.S. presidential campaigns usually aren't sunk by major policy mistakes or the attacks of an opponent. They result from self-inflicted, unforced errors.
This was apparent anew when Jeb Bush, the establishment favorite for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination, recently tripped over himself as he tried, repeatedly, to answer a simple, predictable and fair question: Knowing what we know now would you have invaded Iraq in 2003?
Brian Banks was one of America's best high school football players when, in 2002, at age 16, he was accused of rape.
The accuser, Wanetta Gibson, said Banks had forced her into a stairway at their high school in California and raped her.
Say anything critical about a person or an organization and brace for this pushback: At least he, she or it isn't as bad as someone or something else.

I have watched the paid chatterers shaking their bobbed heads or frowning their well-practiced frown or just grimacing in frustration as they lament the seeming foolishness of the "American people" in not responding with greater shock and awe to the growing revelation that Hillary Clinton used her private email system to forward non-classified information with notes such as "interesting" or "worth pursuing" to her top national security aide.

A Wall Street Journal editorial Friday predicted what would happen if Republicans won the King v. Burwell case, which the Supreme Court is expected to decide any week now. The Journal said that if Obamacare subsidies disappeared in states with (mostly) Republican governors, there could be another "friendly-fire massacre" as people blamed the party for the collapse of the individual insurance market.
Jeb Bush's recent effort at damage control by reversing his statement on the Iraq War isn't likely to get him out of the woods.
