GOP leadership is bitterly divided these days, over whether to marginalize the dyspeptic land squid who tried to violently overthrow our 244-year-old republic or to fully embrace him.

Donald Trump’s lawyers argued for years that he couldn’t be sued because he was kinda-sorta president or something. Apparently you don’t actually have to do the job to retain the title. It’s like if you were the curly fry guy at Arby’s and all you did all day was eat the customers’...

Received this e-mail today from U.S. Senator Jeff Merkley (D. OR) in support of Rev. Raphael Warnock’s (D. GA) U.S. Senate campaign: America is hurting. Tens of thousands of Americans are gathering every day in righteous protest against violence and racism. Instead of seeking reconciliation and justice, the president tries...

This Washington Post op-ed from Stuart Stevens, an author and Republican political consultant, is the mother of all mea culpas. (He’s plugging a book, so maybe some of this will seem a bit convenient and self-serving. Then again, the title of the book is It Was All a Lie: How the...
