  • There once was a land named Crimea

    Thanks to some strange alignment of the planets, there were two competing, yet remarkably similar, news stories this week. Both involved the disappearance of things that should never get lost: an entire passenger plane and an entire country. But, at...
  • A challenge from the left for Hillary?

    Most political reporters have already written the script for 2016: Hillary Clinton announces she will run for president shortly after the mid-term elections of November 2014, Democrats clear the field for her, she romps unscathed through the primaries,...
  • Congress for sale, now more than ever

    As chief justice, I have no doubt that John G. Roberts' number one goal is to turn this democracy into a plutocracy. And he's well on his way to doing so. It didn't start with the Roberts Court, of course. It started with the court's 1976 Buckley v....
  • Does anybody believe Governor Christie?

    Only in New York. Yes, only in the New York media market would a barely-sworn-into-office mayor get in hot water so fast over so trivial an issue. But there was Mayor Bill de Blasio last week, forced to apologize for eating pizza with a fork and knife,...
  • My big stoned gay wedding

    One of the first lessons every political activist learns the hard way is: Change doesn't happen overnight. No matter how noble the cause, it usually has to simmer for years before it finally heats up and public support turns around. Then, finally, your...
  • The imperial Obama presidency

    What was Obama thinking? He's never made any secret of his disdain for members of Congress. After all, he made it all the way to the White House after serving only three years on the Hill. What's wrong with those dumbbells who've spent half a lifetime...
  • Drawing the line on Obama haters

    If you thought political rhetoric had sunk as low as it could, think again. We've never seen as much hate speech directed against any president as the vitriol unleashed by extremists every day against President Obama. Of course, he's hardly the first...
  • Monica Lewinsky, the sequel

    OK, let's say you're a freshman Republican senator, but already a force within your party and a rising media star, and you're thinking about running for president in 2016. After all, there's no obvious frontrunner. You've got as good a chance as anybody....
  • Is it time for a second look at LBJ?

    The contrast could not be greater. Last year, we marked the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. This year, we note the 50th anniversary of the election of President Lyndon Baines Johnson. One president is still revered, and...
  • An executive order Obama should sign

    What a difference a year makes. It was only a year ago that Republicans were among the loudest voices for comprehensive immigration reform. Of course, they were speaking, not out of conviction, but out of desperation, after their party's disastrous...
  • Is Obama a tyrant or a weakling?

    I'm not ashamed to admit it: I love politics. I've been at it for decades. It's important. It's fun. I've made a good living out of it, as campaign manager, candidate and commentator. But there are times when partisan politics has no place. And this is...
  • Straight out of Mad magazine: Spy vs. spy

    Truth is, indeed, stranger than fiction. We found that out again this week. Not even John le Carre or Daniel Silva could write a spy novel as multi-leveled, complicated, and unpredictable as the plot unveiled by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), chair...
