We had a magical Obamacare limbo period of two months, Dana Milbank columnizes, in which the HealthCare.gov Web site was so faulty one could hardly say the exchanges had been implemented at all. But now, with the Web site working like we thought it would two months ago, it’s gone too far to repeal. Repeal […]
Those are not combat fatigues. Dana Milbank, wanker extraordinaire: I’m often asked if there’s anything that could clean up the mess [in DC] [...] My usual answer is a shrug and an admission that there’s no silver bullet. There are many...Show More Summary
That’s Dana Milbank’s theory: A Congressional Quarterly count of the current Congress finds that just 86 of the 435 members of the House are veterans, as are only 17 of 100 senators, which puts the overall rate at 19 percent. This is the lowest percentage of veterans in Congress since World War II, down from […]

At the last big anti-war protest, I sat for five or ten minutes sitting on a curb in front of the White House and chatting with Dana Milbank, a columnist from the Washington Post. I found him to be an affable fellow, although I almost never agree with him. Today, he writes a column that […]

Since Thanksgiving is about food and photo ops and gratitude for the nation we live in, Dana Milbank’s column on the White House’s photography policy fits right in. Specifically, umm, isn’t it shady that the White House doesn’t allow outside photographers to cover even the most photo-oppy of events? Like the president greeting a teenage […]
Dana Milbank: Republicans are opposed to President Obama's deal with the Iranians -- whatever it is.... In the eyes of Republicans, the agreement with Iran has a fatal flaw: It was negotiated by the Obama administration. This president...Show More Summary
What a lovely day to be discussing a new nuclear/sanctions agreement with Iran! Even more so when one has a lead-coated PostScript Bunker from which to observe the discussion, and when that bunker is not located in Iran. But Dana Milbank, who had no such bunker, was out to observe the immediate public reaction of congressional/former […]
Dana Milbank destroys Ari Fleischer this morning – and deservedly so. Fleischer’s instant reaction to even the news of an agreement – without any knowledge of its details – was to denounce it. Dana calls the faster-than-a-jerking-knee response “mindless.” And how could one argue against that? To denounce something before you even know what it […]
Dana Milbank notes that Republicans began screeching about “appeasement” and “distracting attention from O-care” before any of the details of the recent temporary deal with Iran were announced. A couple of minutes after 9 p.m. on Saturday, word crossed the news wires that negotiators in Geneva had reached an agreement on Iran’s nuclear program. Then, […]

Megalomaniac Milbank KNOWS better than we mere mortals that giving in to Republican treason is FAR better than running a democratic republic by majority rule. Continue reading ?
Dana Milbank has the vapors (and a really poor grasp of history and a total lack of perspective). Let's start with the title: "The Democrats' naked power grab." Because allowing the president to actually fulfill his constitutional duty of populating the government and federal courts is a power grab. Show More Summary
Shorter Dana Milbank: Since American political history started in 2013, it is clear that the United States Senate is a much more effective and functional legislative body than the House of Representatives. Shorter William Jacobson: My only quibble with Milbank’s astute analysis is his claim that Republicans have abused the filibuster. Why, 70% of the [...]
