The Ghost and The Darkness
Last week left us gasping after the first presidential debate and apprehensive about what to expect from the Supreme Court this morning about Trump’s total immunity case. (Now we know the answer to the second issue.) Let’s begin with the obvious. Joe Biden did not have a good debate night. He had a disastrous debate night. Despite the rah, rah...

Say it Ain’t So, Joe
Yesterday, during a nap, I had a dream. In the dream, a young boy looked up at a man whom he admired, a man who stood for the right thing, a man who persevered during the toughest of times. But when that same man was overwhelmed by an avalanche of lies, bowed his head and . . . gave up....

MIKE!!! What Happened?
Mike, last month I lauded your courageous stand against your party’s extremists after six unproductive months to help Ukraine (Principle Before Party). Remember that? “When [Johnson] brought the Ukrainian aid package to the floor last week, his far-right colleagues—who firmly stood against any aid to Ukraine until the Biden administration addressed the border crisis—denounced him.” Remember Marjorie Taylor Greene’s response?...
