    Tea party: They call us names because they fear our strength
    Last January, after the tragic attack on Rep. Gabrielle Giffords that left her severely wounded and six people dead, President Barack Obama made an impassioned plea to the nation to tone down political and partisan rhetoric. So it's both surprising and...
  • 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,...
  • Voting for the Republican, by default

    I sympathize with the letter Dovey Kahn wrote in today's Baltimore Sun ("Obama by default," Sept. 6). Just as some will hold their nose and vote for President Obama in 2012, I held my nose and voted for John McCain in 2008, and I'll likely be holding my...

    Leonard Pitts: Benefits of torture come at too high a price

  • Torture would be wrong even if it worked

    I am thankful that Sen. John McCain has remained steadfast in his belief that torture is wrong, as reported in the Leonard Pitts' column ("Benefits of torture come at too high a price," May 22). I appreciate also that Mr. Pitts highlighted Senator McCain'...
  • Did waterboarding lead to bin Laden? We don't know and it doesn't matter

    The successful raid on Osama bin Laden's safe house in Pakistan has reinvigorated debate over the role that "enhanced interrogation techniques" have played in fighting al-Qaida. No one is switching sides, which has turned the argument into a theological...
  • GOP candidates court votes in blue Maryland

    It's a long way from New Hampshire or Iowa, and Maryland's primary is 10 months away, but a growing number of Republicans are beginning to make pit stops in the Old Line State as the race for the GOP presidential nomination gets under way. In the past...
  • Jon Stewart and Fox: News, lies and misinformation

    Regarding Jon Stewart's swipe at Chris Wallace over whether Fox News viewers are misinformed: As much as the media is blamed for spreading lies and misinformation, people will believe what they want to. More often than not, what they want to believe is...
  • Howard Dems pull for Obama; GOP says it has momentum

    With Maryland's presidential primary only nine months off, Howard County Democrats are organizing at basic levels, contacting newly registered Democrats, building their base of core neighborhood organizers and volunteers, secure in knowing they have...

    Why the GOP primary isn't like Obama vs. Clinton in '08
    Republican wishful thinkers like to rationalize away the damage being inflicted on their party by the intramural mudslinging among its unimpressive field of presidential candidates. After all, they note, in 2008 Democrats Barack Obama and Hillary...
