A Romney presidency, especially if coupled with Republican control of both houses of Congress, would create such economic catastrophe that people would no longer be able to feed their puppies.             Consequently, Mitt's secret offshore...

John McCain's interview on Sunday's edition of Meet the Press was predictable enough for an ancient, out-of-touch senator. His flip-flopping on “Don't Ask, Don't Tell” is hardly newsworthy at this point. The supposedly "mavericky" senator, who will forever be defined by an insignificant...

Civility in public discussion these days is as rare as a bald-headed Kennedy -- the last of that mane now lionized by Ted's passing. But damn if John McCain didn't have a bunch of citizens at his Arizona health care reform town hall meeting yesterday behaving like the Mormon Tabernacle choir:...

I want to start out that I am not one for conspiracy theories. Do I think it's possible that, at times, there is more to a situation than appears on the surface? Sure. But often, I like to refer to Occam's Razor which, simply put, says: “Of several acceptable explanations for a phenomenon, the...
