Dr. Tom Coburn, Thomas Coburn,

Coburn’s Terms

Over the weekend, as Rep. Thomas Massie (R-Kent.) was single-handedly battling the entire Congress, another fighter with the inner courage to stand up against the Washington mob was sadly losing his battle with cancer. On Saturday, Dr. Tom Coburn passed away at age 72. Honored in his day with the

Mistaken Misogyny

Are Democratic Party women . . . misogynists? Last week, Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren dropped out of the presidential race after coming in third in her home state and faring no better in any of the first 18 state primaries and caucuses. “Warren seemed to be the ideal candidate,” informed

Running Interference

When rumor of “Russian interference” in the 2016 presidential election hit the news, my first thought was: electronic/computerized voting machines — they are known to be insecure, easy to rig. But when it turned out that folks at CNN and MSNBC were hyperventilating about a very clumsy ad campaign on

The Superdelegate Zombie Apocalypse

Back in 2016, this commentary was perhaps the first howl in the political wilderness against the unfairness of the Democratic Party’s use of “superdelegates” — office holders and party officials who by party rules automatically serve as unelected but voting delegates at the national convention . . . which chooses

The Mandela Effect

People have been known to plagiarize college term papers. Even a few political speeches have been surreptitiously copied and brazenly re-orated without proper attribution. But you can’t plagiarize getting arrested, can you? Not really. What you can do is lie about being arrested — just make it up out of

The C-Word Emerges

“We’re not going to throw out capitalism,” declared Michael Bloomberg, the billionaire former New York City mayor now seeking the Democratic Party’s nomination for president.  “Other countries tried that. It was called communism and it just didn’t work.” Bloomberg was responding to a question by MSNBC’s Hallie Jackson at Wednesday

Madame Guillotine

A Maine woman running for the U.S. Senate has chosen for her campaign logo the guillotine. Yes, she calls herself a ‘democratic socialist.’ Well, on Twitter it is ‘DemSoc.’ Her name . . . No, start again. On the campaign Twitter page the candidate’s “preferred pronouns” are listed as “they/them.”

Dem Noodles

Though skipping Iowa and New Hampshire, Michael Bloomberg’s advertisements are ubiquitous on television and YouTube seemingly everywhere in America. “New Hampshire voters to Steyer: Make it stop!” reads a Politico headline sparked by that taller, poorer billionaire’s unbearable barrage of spots. At Reason, Eric Boehm notes that Bloomberg and Tom

Tulsi Gabbard,

Defamed by the Devil

Challenged to a push-up contest at a town hall campaign meeting in New Hampshire, Representative Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii) hit the floor and won. The presidential candidate (polling at 5.4 percent in the Granite State) probably will not win the nomination, alas. Or her lawsuit against Hillary Clinton. Lawsuit? Yes, a

Reality TV 2020

It shocked some, surprised virtually all — save Scott Adams — when mega-branding braggart, businessman, and reality TV star Donald “You’re Fired!” Trump slapped his way to a trifecta, winning in decades-long bastions of blue — Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin — en route to his “landslide” Electoral College win. How could

Vermin Competition

Should Lincoln Chafee invert a boot and place it on his head?  It might help him compete. The famous Republican turned Democratic politician from Rhode Island — former U.S. Senator and Governor, both, and sometime presidential hopeful — has filed to run for the presidency. But as a Libertarian. The

Discriminating Democrats

In ten days, the Democratic Party will hold a presidential debate that, according to the rules established by the Democratic National Committee, includes six qualified candidates all of whom are white. Which is apparently not the right color. “Of course, there is nothing wrong with Democrats selecting a white presidential
