Raging Moderate by Will Durst Once again, in terms of political theater, the president has managed to flummox both critics and angels alike. Reviews of his State of the Union address have been more mixed than a Kansas Cuisinart stuck in a tornado on puree. Notwithstanding the ritualistic 79 applause breaks by his Geek Chorus, […]

Here are some terrific cartoons about the protests taking place in Egypt by Emad Hajjaj, a Jordanian cartoonist that draws for the Alghad newspaper.

As Egyptians continue to protest and call for the resignation of President Hosni Mubarak, the government has responded by cracking down on the media and shutting down the nation’s internet.

The Minnesota Congresswoman has just completed her third campaign trip to Iowa where she told reporters she’s weighing her options about a run for the presidency. Such a candidacy would […]

Red Carpet. Camera flashes. Black ties. Fine China. Hollywood celebrities. Colgate smiles. All the bells and whistles you’d expect for a visiting Head of State, albeit dictator, Hu Jintao. Sure, China has oppressed Tibet for decades and the rights of women even longer, but it’s hard to bite the hand that feeds you – especially […]

Did you know the government can’t create jobs? Nearly two years ago on CNN, former Republican National Committee chairman Michael Steele said, “Not in the history of mankind has the government ever created jobs.” And then, “Trust me.” When Steele said those words, he was widely panned. It was dismissed on the right as a […]

Earlier this month at Washington, D.C.’s National Press Club the State Legislators for Legal Immigration, a coalition of legislators from 40 states, unveiled its strategy to end the policy of giving automatic citizenship to all children born in the United States regardless of their parents’ immigration status. Led by Pennsylvania State Representative Daryl Metcalfe, the […]
