Huckabee: From Happy-Go Lucky to Harpy-Go-Nutty

2:00 PM1 comment

In a desperate plea to scream “look at me” Mike Huckabee has jumped the shark. First he tweeted, “Planned Parenthood isn’t a healthcare provider any more than Benghazi was a spontaneous protest.” Then, in an interview with Breitbart, Mike Huckabee took his reckless and inflammatory rhetoric to a new, despicable […]

The Trump Wreck In Perspective

July 23, 2015 1:17 PM0 comments

Most refreshing about Northern Virginia’s freshman congressman, Democrat Donald S. Beyer, Jr., is how brainy, eloquent and cheerful a warrior for progressive causes that he is.

July 22, 2015 1:09 PM1 comment

I had a heated conversation with a nice, but terribly misguided Republican last night. He said that Donald Trump and the presidential Bozo Bus embarrassed him. He was apologetic and trying to explain that he wasn’t “one of them.” “They don’t represent me,” he said. “I’m not like that.” To […]

The California State Assembly passed a sweeping bill that mandates that school children be vaccinated. No longer can irresponsible parents opt out of vaccinating their kids and be exempted for personal or religious reasons.
