Debate Depressive Disorder
October 20th, 2016 2:49 AM
How many more broadcast bust-ups will it take before America finally decides to make its presidential election debates tolerable again? I can't take it anymore. Can you?

Hillary, Donald and the Birther Demise
September 22nd, 2016 12:37 PM
WASHINGTON — Did you see the interview over the weekend of a listless and, apparently, exhausted Hillary Clinton? Supposedly she has recovered from last week's bout with pneumonia, but she could have fooled me. Call me a hypochondriac, but in my opinion her recovery is not going very well.
