Mayo has the best p.r. operation of any of the campaigns-- and has had that going for him for years. It's how much a total nothing has wound up on the debate stage with actual leaders. Evan Allgood wrote about an excellent way of looking at who and what Mayo actually is via a short...

I don't know if Ambassador Gordon Sondland is going to turn out to be the John Dean of Trump's impeachment or not-- or if he's just the one who winds up putting Rudy Giuliani in prison-- but his testimony yesterday was pretty damning. Watch the quid pro quo segment above. Fox anchor Chris...

Pretty decent debate last night. Elizabeth started off strong but in the end Bernie won. Biden was as pathetic as usual and I get more certain by the day that I would never vote for him-- and I was completely certain of that in 1980. Kamala was desperate, dishonest and hideous and...

Trump made a sudden, unscheduled visit to Walter Reed Hospital last weekend. He looked sick and on death's door as he climbed into the White House SUV. Even though he still isn't dead, Chuck Todd and his Meet The Press team reported yesterday that 8 weeks of impeachment, with one bombshell...

American politics has turned very strange. Of course, much of the reason for that is the truly weird person occupying the White House (and yeah, he’s also corrupt and downright evil, but you can’t deny, he’s just plain weird, too). But it’s definitely not just Trump. Republican...

My grandfather came from Russia to America when he was 14. Most of his family were denied entry and wound up in Brazil. Far more of my grandfather's relatives are in Recife, Natal and Salvador than in the U.S. They are doctors, lawyers, businessmen, teachers, an artist and so on. They speak...
