Two recent letters to the editor caught my attention. One was the contention of a writer who thought that the reason so many "front line" journalists are left-leaning is because they live in close touch with "the real world" ("The GOP lost because it's...

The Republican Party has been doing a lot of hand-wringing and finger-pointing since the presidential election. Half the conservative columnists and bloggers say the GOP lost because it overemphasized social issues such as abortion and gay marriage. The...

After dumping Sarah Palin and Dick Morris, Fox News has hired Scott Brown and now Herman Cain as a contributor.
The first three moves made some sense, especially the two firings. Palin's fling with fame was over, and the sleaze attached to Morris had...

The joint appearance by President Obama and Hillary Clinton on “60 Minutes” wasn’t about the Democratic nomination in 2016, as some analysts have insisted this weekend.

President Barack Obama wants to invest an initial $110 billion in a study of the human brain that could have benefits as great as those achieved by the Human Genome Project. Maybe the first study should be done on the one-track minds of tea party...

WASHINGTON -- Maryland GOP Senate candidate Daniel Bongino will report raising at least $650,000 for his campaign since July, a significantly larger haul than he has had in any quarter since announcing his candidacy last year.

In stepping down last week as a speaker at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine commencement, Dr. Ben Carson again took on the role of media/culture critic and martyr to "political correctness."

Why do Republicans keep attacking their members? They bicker and denounce each other. That's not how you win elections. Case in point is the ill-fated 2008 ticket of Sen. John McCain and Gov. Sarah Palin. Ms. Palin and her family were ruthlessly...
