  • The tea party's true colors

    Doug Mainwaring's article about the tea party, "Why the name calling?" (Aug. 10), was highly amusing. If name-calling is the problem, I'd suggest hey start with themselves. Whether it is Sarah Palin talking about "death panels" or Tea Party Nation CEO...

  • Is Akin really out of the Republican mainstream?

    Is Akin really out of the Republican mainstream?
    Missouri is a long way from Maryland, so residents can be forgiven for never having heard of Rep. Todd Akin prior to this week. But when the socially conservative Republican Senate candidate suggested that the victims of "legitimate rape" rarely get...
  • Best and worst of this year's presidential ads

    Today's topic: the billions (yes, with a "b") that will be spent on advertising in this year's presidential and congressional campaigns, and what kind of messages that money is sending. Like jazz, blues and musical comedy, the political ad is a...
