The lunatic litigiousness of Donald Trump continues to provide unending hours of entertainment for court watchers who enjoy a good farce. Trump’s lawyers seem to be alumni of Barnum and Bailey’s Clown School of Law and Laughs. They are expert practitioners of the “Pie in the Face” doctrine of jurisprudence....

In last night’s midterm results, deep red states remained blood red, and gerrymandered Democratic districts in Florida and New York turned purple or outright red, like  Miami-Dade County in Florida. Now that the red wave has been dashed against the shore, I must write another of the millions of rehashes...

As the 2022 midterm election morning dawned, Donald Trump could be found up bright and early yammering about election fraud that didn’t exist. His accusations were especially bizarre since they were aimed at the Republicans who were running the Arizona election. So he thinks that Arizona’s GOP officials were committing...

I often use a three-word idiom to explain human behavior; accident, coincidence, and trend. The current anti-Semitic controversy surrounding the demonstrations of ignorance by NBA star Kyrie Irving makes my point. His accidents of language have stopped being funny, are not a coincidence, and have become a trend. In 2017...
