  New York Times columnist David Brooks wrote a column today titled "Thurston Howell Romney". In this column he discussed the video of Governor Romney's off the cuff remarks about the 47% receiving money from the government. I managed to get in touch with Thurston Howell the third to see how...

I hadn't planned to volunteer for the Obama campaign. I know I will vote for him, so I decided that was enough. I'm very busy trying to make a living as a freelance writer.  I'm one of the 8.1 percent unemployed that has given up looking for a real job.    The competition is fierce...

What are your core beliefs? I know that's a pretty loaded question. Most of us have sort of a "belief pyramid," where our really intense convictions are firmly ingrained up top where the stonework can't get tagged with graffiti or some teenage boy's spent Copenhagen wad. And then down near the...

Really I don’t think I could have handled four nights of the GOP convention in Tampa.  Thank goodness I was able to flip between tennis and the convention: The USOpen, The USClosed, US open, US closed. It was like being in some horrible comedy club - Tampa’s Yuck Yuck [as in icky]...

I finally got him last night. Or should I say, he got me. Mitt Romney's hit some potholes along the way, no doubt about it, but he keeps coming back like a a grinning rash with graying temples. Remember pretty early on, when he had to explain the whole dog misunderstanding? He handled it like...

It’s official. The symbolic head of the Republican Party is not Ronald Reagan. It’s Pee-Wee Herman. It was Herman after all, as portrayed by comic actor Paul Reubens, whose only comeback to every criticism was, “I know you are but what am I?” And it is this mantra — this maddening, childlike,...
