King Kandy and the Gingerbread People

March 8, 2010 - 6:00pm

WASHINGTON -- Skipping through the Candy Land of the health care bill, one is tempted to hum a few bars of "Let Me Call You Sweetheart."

What a deal. For deal-makers, that is. Not so much for American taxpayers, who have been misled into thinking that the sweetheart deals have been excised.

March 2, 2010 - 6:00pm

WASHINGTON -- For all our bemoaning the tortures of health care reform, the debate has been healthy for the nation.
Everybody's crazy aunts and uncles have been let out of their respective attics and basements, and it's good to know who they are. It's also been helpful for Americans to see how the sausage is made and figure out whether they really want any.

Tilikum's Very Bad Moment

February 28, 2010 - 6:00pm

WASHINGTON -- Reaction to the horror at SeaWorld, a nightmare seldom seen outside Peter Benchley's imagination, has run the exhausted gamut.

February 25, 2010 - 6:00pm

WASHINGTON -- The RINO hunt is back on and the coveted trophy is Scott Brown.
Inevitably and predictably, the new senator from Massachusetts -- Mr. 41, Mr. I-Drive-A-Truck, tea party poster dude -- has disappointed his base by, alas, representing his constituents.
It's the purity test all over again; only this time, the stakes are high and the weird are turning seriously pro.
