    Delaney defeats Bartlett in the 6th District

  • Robert B. Reich: The new American civil war

    Robert B. Reich: The new American civil war
    The vitriol is worse than I ever recall. Worse than the Palin-induced smarm of 2008. Worse than the Swift-boat lies of 2004. Worse, even, than the anything-goes craziness of 2000 and its ensuing bitterness. It's almost a civil war. I know families in...
  • The Catholic Church isn't playing politics

    In his letter ("If the church wants to play politics, it should give up its tax-exempt status" July 6), the author seems to have a problem with the Catholic Church's right to express opinions on religious matters. The church does not endorse political...

    For women, reproductive rights are economic issues
    Sensing, perhaps, that they are losing the public relations battle after Senate candidate Todd Akin's forehead-slapping views on "legitimate rape" and the female body's magical ability to guard against pregnancy, Republicans are trying now to focus on the...
  • Akin rape comments 'offensive and wrong,' Bartlett says

    Rep. Roscoe G. Bartlett repudiated fellow Republican Rep. Todd Akin’s comments on rape Tuesday, while his campaign manager called an attempt by Maryland Democrats to tie Bartlett to the controversy “disgusting.” Akin, the GOP nominee...
  • Presidential election or abortion referendum?

    Presidential election or abortion referendum?
    The platforms that the two political parties publish every four years are a lot like the warranties that come with washers or refrigerators: Nobody ever reads them, but if you do, you find that nothing in them actually applies. This year, though, the...
  • Why Romney and Ryan are going down

    Why Romney and Ryan are going down
    Unemployment is still above 8 percent, job gains aren't even keeping up with population growth, the economy is barely moving forward. And yet, according to most polls, the Romney-Ryanticket is falling further and further behind. How can this be?...
  • Ignore distractions, focus on deficit

    With Rep. Todd Akin of Missouri refusing to leave the race for the U.S. Senate seat, the distractions are guaranteed to keep coming ("Akin fights on, says he's 'standing on principle,'" Aug. 23). Despite his apologies and retraction, and despite...
  • 20 reasons Bob Ehrlich is wrong

    Former Governor Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. presents a 20-point platform for Republicans to "be proud of" ("A platform for the next Republican nominee," Nov. 18). Let's examine each of these points in detail, and the reader can decide if any of them are...
  • Akin's idiocy is infectious

    Akin's idiocy is infectious
      Todd Akin's idiocy appears to be infectious. The evil genius of the Missouri congressman's comments is that they lend themselves to such broad interpretations -- and misinterpretations. By now his remarks are familiar, but just in case ... Mr....
