Ring In the Olde?

April 14, 2015 - 6:00pm

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.

The Sacrifice of Sarah Palin

January 27, 2015 - 6:00pm

WASHINGTON -- When Democrats were looking for evidence of a Republican war on women, they overlooked Exhibit A -- Sarah Palin.
