As a practicing Democrat, I have endured the slings and arrows of the conservative-Christian community for years. I have heard that caring about the poor, taking the stewardship of the planet seriously, and leaving the decision to have a baby to God and the mother were spawns of the devil....

There is an adage that reads ‘tragedy plus time equals comedy; hence the joke, other than that, Mrs. Lincoln, how did you enjoy the play? It is always hard to write about a recent death without sounding crass or tasteless, but the truth is essential and enlightening. The death of...

Republicans who threw a truth tampering tantrum that manifested into an insurrection are destroying this country. A famous and heated argument between Archie Bunker and Edith’s cousin Maude Findlay is a prophetic example. The discussion led to a disagreement over the wives of President(s) Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Richard “E”(sic)...

Anti-American Republicans seem to be stunned into obsequiousness, or the fear of not having a  white majority makes them surrender to their worst instincts. The Republican party, through their officials, both local and federal, Supreme Court Justices, and media outlets are profiteering off of hate. The party is now a...

Among the hundreds of lies told by the former president, one has proven to be particularly dangerous to public health. “That’s all I hear about now. That’s all I hear.

Oh, yes. As every publicist knows, the best way to handle a PR crisis is to bring up the awful thing you desperately want people to forget about five or more years after the fact. This is the stable-iest, most genius-y thing I’ve ever heard. Donald Trump, whose numerous grievances tend...

I was born in the 1950s when it was not illegal for black people in the south to vote—it was suicide.

It’s sick. So, so sick. But that’s what Republicans are all about these days: inspecting children’s genitals. It’s pretty much all they talk about—when they’re not talking about Mr. Potato Head. And his starchy, androgynous genitalia. They’re so into it, in fact, they’ve passed bills that would allow them to scrutinize any...
