Commander in Chief

Maybe it's the phrase -- "commander in chief" -- that best captures the transcendent absurdity and unaddressed horrors of the 2016 election season and the business as usual that will follow. I don't want to elect anyone commander in chief: not the xenophobic misogynist and egomaniac, not the Henry Kissinger acolyte and Libya hawk. Show More Summary

Strive For 65

The American political system is broken and we the people are to blame. Rather than learning about candidates, we listened to sound bites.

Why Trump's "Wait and See" Was Brilliant

If you hear someone hyperventilating over Trump's reply on automatically accepting the election results, tell them to take a breath. First, remember, that 41 percent of people now think things are rigged. And most remember eight years...Show More Summary

Low Hanging Fruit

Elephant or Dinosaur?

After last night's final debate, it's clear that Hillary Clinton will be elected President by the largest popular vote margin since Ronald Reagan in 1984. The breadth of her victory will almost certainly elect a Democratic Senate and threatens Republican control of the House. Show More Summary

Misogyny: Trump's Cardinal Trait
