Opinion: Ivanka Trumps Reality

Opinion: Ivanka Trumps Reality

G on Politics (opinion): In her public statements, Ivanka Trump says her deranged and bigoted father is actually a good guy who has elevated the political debate this year. She has not yet said if she also believes the earth is flat and the moon is made of green cheese.
Eeek, a Trumpenstein Monster!

Opinion: Eeek, a Trumpenstein Monster!

G on Politics (opinion): Now that Donald Trump has emerged as the presumptive presidential nominee for the Republican Party, there are alarm bells going off inside anyone with a soul or an I.Q. above 80. There are so many things to fear.
Toxic People Find Hillary Toxic

Opinion: Toxic People Find Hillary Toxic

G on Politics (opinion): There is nothing too vile for right-wing nut-jobs to say or do in attacking Hillary Clinton, as evidenced by their three-decade-long hissy fit against the former first lady, senator, and Secretary of State. Here are some points to counter the bat-crap crazies of the GOP.
UFO meets GOP

Opinion: UFO meets GOP

G on Politics (opinion/satire): Alien life forms in unidentified flying objects swoop past earth from time to time, just checking things out. As one might expect of highly advanced beings, they are not pleased by what they see.
Trump Hunts Delegates

Opinion: Trump Hunts Delegates

G on Politics (opinion): The race for the nomination of the Treason Party is heading toward a strange finish line called an 'open convention' or a 'contested convention.' Here is what will happen when irresistible farce (Trump) meets immovable idiot (Cruz).
GOP Campaign Diaries

Opinion: GOP Campaign Diaries

G on Politics (opinion/satire): Bombshell revelations of sex and drugs! Oodles of behind-the-scenes rumor and innuendo! Here are the totally true but entirely fabricated diary entries from high-ranking or perhaps nonexistent members of the right-wing nut-job bigot brigade.
Nut Runs for President

Opinion: Nut Runs for President as 'Unity Candidate'

G on Politics (opinion/satire): Republican Party leaders are on the lookout for a so-called "unity candidate" for president. My friend Nate has selflessly offered himself for the job. I selflessly offered to interview him.
Teeny Tiny Problem with a Trump Presidency

Opinion: One Teeny Tiny Problem with a Trump Presidency

G on Politics (Opinion): Card-carrying members of the GOP are divided over the idea of backing Donald Trump for president. Some oppose him whole-heartedly. Others support him half-heartedly. Less, even. Eighth-heartedly. Sixteenth-heartedly. And for good reason.
Opinion: Cutthroat Politics

Opinion: Cutthroat Politics at Hillmont Elementary School

G on Politics (opinion): The race for Student Body President of Hillmont Elementary School was contentious. Candidates hurled accusations at each other on a regular basis and every day brought new ugly rumors of vicious whisper-gossip campaign tactics.
The Making of a Conservative

Opinion: The Making of a Conservative

G on Politics (opinion): Are Conservatives evil from nature or nurture? What turns a normal, decent human being into a Republican? While some people are born bad, the main problem comes from kids being raised in the oppressive atmosphere of a rightwing household.
Chris Matthews

Opinion: Chris Matthews and the New Economy of Language

G on Politics (opinion): As the insightful and entertaining host of 'Hardball,' airing daily on MSNBC, Chris Matthews has awards and accolades galore. But lately he has slipped into two annoying habits: he clips syllables from words he speaks, and he cuts off words from the sentences of his guests.
It's JEB!

Opinion: It's Jeb! From Those Friendly Folks Who Gave You the Iraq War

G on Politics (opinion): Many are questioning the decision by a current presidential candidate (the one calling itself "Jeb!") to showcase a failed former president (the one known as "W?") in his campaign.
Marco Rubio and the GOP Work Ethic

Opinion: Marco Rubio and the GOP Work Ethic

G on Politics (opinion): Marco Rubio often doesn't show up for work. Instead of a pay cut or a demotion, he has been elevated to competing for the most important job in the world. Imagine how much better your life would be if you could take the same lazy approach to your work.
