  • Can the GOP reverse the damage done by Iraq?

    Can the GOP reverse the damage done by Iraq?
    Is the Iraq war to blame for the mess we are in? Now, I should qualify that question by explaining "mess" and "we." By "mess," I mean the dawn of Barack Obama's second term, the predictably catastrophic rollout of Obamacare, the exploding debt and...
  • What has Ben Affleck got above his fireplace?

    I pay no more attention to the Academy Awards than to the Miss America pageant and other reality shows, but the heavy-breathing coverage of the Academy Awards sometimes sparks a faint interest. This from Slate: Now that Ben Affleck’s Iran...
  • GMAC dropping 250 Maryland foreclosure cases

    GMAC Mortgage said Tuesday it is dropping about 250 Maryland foreclosure cases that were apparently "robo-signed," giving homeowners a second chance to save their properties — and raising the possibility that other lenders might follow suit. The...

    When Sen. John Kerry called Standard & Poor's downgrade of the U.S. credit rating "The tea party downgrade," he illustrated perfectly the intellectual dishonesty and absurd politicking that has given Congress its stellar 14 percent approval rating. If...
  • Political impact of 9/11 fades

    At a town hall meeting in Catonsville last week, Sen. Benjamin L. Cardin spent a half-hour answering questions, including whether Congress would cut Medicare, address immigration or impeach President Barack Obama. Despite the breadth of the discussion,...

    Give pols a pass for verbal miscues
    My elementary school principal was fond of reminding his students that the last perfect person walked this Earth 2,000 years ago. (Note to the litigious types over at the ACLU: It was permissible to provide such insight in light of the school's...

    Mikulski honored as longest-serving woman in Congress

  • Iraq withdrawal: An end to the nonsense talk of 'American empire'

    Iraq withdrawal: An end to the nonsense talk of 'American empire'
    And so it ends. The United States is leaving Iraq. I'm solidly in the camp that sees this as a strategic blunder. Iraqi democracy is fragile and Iran's desire to undermine it is strong. Also, announcing our withdrawal is a weird way to respond to a...
