Holey moley catfish. Well, thank god that's finally over. Further thanks that the climax was quick and clean. Almost surgical. Not as long a night as many first thought it might be. Except for Karl Rove that is, who for all we know is still scribbling numbers to prove the call on Clinton's...

Don't mean to overreact and risk boosting everybody's blood pressure higher than opening offers on Facebook's upcoming IPO, but this might be a halfway decent time to seek out a nice safe steel bunker to hunker down in or behind, because it's awards season and heavy metal statuettes are being...

Born in the 1980s and '90s, the right-wing girl Millennials grew up at a time when Reagan was almost ancient history, second-wave feminism was fighting grandma's battles, and the background noise was the whir of talking heads debating whether oral sex was sex at all, courtesy of Bill Clinton....

Michele Bachmann is not a feminist but she is running for president. Michele Bachmann, a congresswoman and a lawyer, is running for president. Michele Bachmann is a mother and a foster mother and a wife and she is running for president. What part of this makes any sense at all? Michele Bachmann...
