In “The Coming War on Business” Bobo babbles that a quarter century ago, Sam Francis was championing the things that got Donald Trump elected last year.  Sam Francis was a crank and a racist, so I guess he’s a good precursor for Trump…  Prof. Krugman, in “Cruelty, Incompetence and Lies,” says Graham-Cassidy says a lot about the […](image)

In “Meet the World’s Leaders, in Hypocrisy” Mr. Kristof says the United Nations rings with bombast and braggadocio.  Ms. Collins asks “Are We Down to President Pence?”  She thinks the least we deserve is a less exciting finger on the trigger.  Here’s Mr. Kristof: Leaders from around the world have descended on New York for United Nations […](image)

Because obviously nothing much important is going on in the nation Bobo and Mr. Bruni have decided to look elsewhere for column fodder.  Bobo, he of the failed marriage, is burbling on about Maslow and marriage.  In “When Life Asks For Everything” he gurgles that two models of human development involve self, with one transcending it […](image)

She’s baaaack…  Thanks to those of you who left comments concerned about how I was.  There were some family illnesses, and then a visit from Hurricane Irma.  (Who, thankfully, wasn’t as bad as we were expecting.  Matthew last year was much worse.) Today Mr. Blow asks a rather silly question:  “Is Mr. Trump a White […](image)

Bobo has decided to tell us all about “How Trump Kills the G.O.P.  It apparently just suddenly dawned on him that the Republican Party has become a vehicle for white identity and racial conflict.  What a revelation!  Some of us, however, have known that for 40 years or so.  “William” from Syracuse will have a few […](image)

Prof. Krugman asks a question in “Fascism, American Style:”  How many Republicans will refuse to collaborate?  Probably NOT,K.  Here he is: As sheriff of Maricopa County, Ariz., Joe Arpaio engaged in blatant racial discrimination. His officers systematically targeted Latinos, often arresting them on spurious charges and at least sometimes beating them up when they questioned […](image)

Bobo has decided to tell us all about “This American Land.”  He gurgles that the nation’s identity has been shaped by nature, by how our wilderness molds, inspires and binds us.  Of course, Mein Fubar and his merry gang are trying their damndest to do away with them…  “Socrates” from Verona, NJ will have something to […](image)

Mr. Kristof says “We’re Journalists, Mr. Trump, Not the Enemy,” and that the president inexplicably finds it easier to condemn reporters than neo-Nazis and white supremacists.  Ms. Collins, in “Trump Talks and Talks and Talks and …,” asks guess who his favorite subject was in Phoenix?  Here’s Mr. Kristof: Sigh. If only President Trump denounced neo-Nazis as […](image)

The Moustache of Wisdom sends us “From Kabul to Baghdad, My Bird’s-Eye View.”  He says a five-nation tour offered a close look at the war on terror and disturbing context for Trump’s plans for Afghanistan.  Mr. Cohen addresses “Trump’s Afghan Illusions” and tells us that the new Afghan strategy is a mess because it has no diplomatic […](image)
