Making Sense by Michael Reagan So Jonathan Gruber thinks the American people are stupid, does he? Gruber is a complete nobody to most Americans, but his face should be on a Most Wanted poster in every Post Office. He was one of the chief architects and cheerleaders for ObamaCare, aka the fraudulent Affordable Care Act […]

I admit it: I feel sorry for cigarette and cigar smokers these days. But changing fashions and the results of the recent election may offer them hope. Cigarette smoking used to be fashionable. Actors like Steve McQueen and Sean Connery made it look manly and cool in their many movies. Women who smoked used to […]

Tyrades! By Danny Tyree Usually when a burning issue arises, I feel compelled to squeeze every last drop of my own phrasing, logic and wit into this limited space. One would think that would be the case with President Obama’s recent campaign to treat broadband companies as common carriers and protect the consumer from “slow […]

This is an exclusive excerpt from Tom Purcell’s new book, “Comical Sense: A Lone Humorist Takes on a World Gone Nutty!” available at amazon.com. Thanks! Hurricane Isabel struck Washington, D.C., hard that night. It was Sept. 18, 2003. I lived in Alexandria, Va., at the time. I rode out the storm reading a book and enjoying a […]

Raging Moderate by Will Durst To call the grotesque drubbing suffered by the Democratic Party in the midterms monumental, is like referring to the surface of the sun as warm.

Republicans may have won the Senate and kept the House, but Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is no inspiration, allowing President Obama to keep all of the leverage of shutting down government spending while the President wags the threatening finger of executive orders in McConnell’s face. If Ted Cruz stays the course of conservative leadership […]

It’s been years since I used AOL for any kind of meaningful email but I can’t bring myself to close the account. I keep thinking that somewhere in my cyber past there’s an old friend about to reach out — and all he has is my AOL address. As a result I spend an inordinate […]

Independent’s Eye by Joe Gandelman TORONTO — Canada gave us now-former Mayor Rob Ford, who led comedy writers to get down on their knees, look to the heavens and shout “Thank You!!” due to his alcohol and drug-induced antics, coupled with his uncanny resemblance to Saturday Live’s late Chris Farley. Canada’s biggest scandal now swirls […]

Making Sense by Michael Reagan A beautiful red tsunami swept across America Tuesday night. Liberal pollsters and liberal pundits on TV refused to see the Republican wave coming and still can’t believe it came. But the S.S. Obama and its cargo of bad ideas sank like a rock, dragging Captain Harry Reid and a motley […]
