WASHINGTON -- The life of the wife of a presidential candidate can sometimes be like the government. Taxing.
Here we go. If you're a woman who might prefer someone other than Hillary Clinton as the next president of the United States, you're a self-loathing, anti-woman traitor.
WASHINGTON -- Americans, perhaps more than anyone, worship the future and resent the past.
This is never truer than during a political season. It doesn't matter whether the past (meaning all of four years ago) trumps the present -- or whether the future carries a whiff of embers and smoke -- we gallop into tomorrow like a dog who mastered the screen door latch, and find little worthy of regard in yesterday.
"As we asked ourselves how we could have gotten the story wrong ..."
Thus read a Rolling Stone editor's note attached to a post-mortem story on the false story it published last fall about an alleged gang rape by members of University of Virginia's Phi Kappa Psi fraternity.
WASHINGTON -- The new tell-all, "The Residence," featuring intimate anecdotes collected from past and current White House staff members, is absolutely delicious -- and utterly lacking in nutritious content.
For a variety of reasons, I gave up alcohol Jan. 4.
I have your attention, don't I?
The apparently intentional downing of a Germanwings airliner by the co-pilot has us riveted, as commercial plane crashes usually do.
WASHINGTON -- I'm standing in the Starbucks line behind 10 other sleepyheads waiting to order my tall skinny cappuccino, otherwise known as a shot of coffee described as I wish it to be.
WASHINGTON -- On March 2, the story broke that Hillary Clinton had possibly violated email regulations while secretary of state.
WASHINGTON -- When Democrats were looking for evidence of a Republican war on women, they overlooked Exhibit A -- Sarah Palin.
This isn't to say that Palin was part of the war on women, though many Democrats would say so. Rather she was one of the war's most conspicuous victims -- fragged, you might say -- by her own troops.
