Truth In Politics: This Way Lies Madness

I spent decades in public office and know the political vagaries of truth as well as anyone. People advocate, tweak, argue, spin and more. But there’s been little patience for lies. Truth is hard to define. It’s not opinion, and it’s not fact, and it’s almost impossible to know in a particular controversy. Show More Summary

To The Women Of The View: Don't Normalize Tomi Lahren

Maddow's Trump Tax Debacle Proves Nothing

Seriously? So the Trump people knew that if they officially released two (two!) pages from Trump’s 2005 (2005!) tax returns and pretended that that settled anything, they’d be laughed out of the court of public opinion. I very strongly suspect that they leaked the two utterly innocuous pages, and Rachel Maddow fell for it. Show More Summary

Imagine if counterfeiting suddenly became legal. Say we asked people not to do it — but there would be no penalty if they did. What would happen? Simple: There would be an explosion of fake money.
