A Majority of One Walks Away From His Keyboard for 02/01/2017

Wed, 01 Feb 2017 00:00:00 -0800

This is the end, my friends. It is time to say goodbye. I realize this is the worst possible time for a political columnist to retire, but what I didn't realize is that any of you cared.

Robert Feder, a famous media writer from Chicago, found out about my retirement a few days ago, and I have been flooded with farewells ever since.

Jesse Jackson: 'You Drown When You Stop Kicking' for 01/25/2017

Wed, 25 Jan 2017 00:00:00 -0800

Jesse Jackson and Donald Trump both awakened on inauguration morning with troubled minds.

You would expect Trump to have been happy. In a few hours, he would be sworn in as America's 45th president. But as the hours ticked away, his mood remained grim.

Ill-informed, Impetuous, Reckless: The Trump Years for 01/18/2017

Wed, 18 Jan 2017 00:00:00 -0800

Donald Trump's goal is not to damage America or our allies. But that may well be the result of his ill-informed, impetuous, reckless actions over the next four years.

What can we do about this? Our fight is not to flee to Canada or South America.

Would We Rather Elect a Wacko Than a Woman? for 01/11/2017

Wed, 11 Jan 2017 00:00:00 -0800

The anecdote is so perfect, so polished, so delicious that it doesn't matter whether it is precisely true.

John F. Kennedy had been shot and killed, a moment that America could barely grasp. For months, the stories in the media had one theme: What is wrong with America? How has democracy failed?

Sailing Away for 01/04/2017

Wed, 04 Jan 2017 00:00:00 -0800

Temperature up. Throat scratchy. A productive cough.

If you do not know what a "productive" cough is, you do not want to. And you do not want to check — especially at the dinner table.

Fame Is Brief; the Candle Flickers for 12/14/2016

Wed, 14 Dec 2016 00:00:00 -0800

It is late February 1984. We are in the Mall of New Hampshire in Manchester between Wong's Egg Rolls and Papa Gino's pizza place. The crowd is gigantic.

Twenty-two years earlier, John Glenn had become the first American to orbit the Earth. We thought his name and that moment would live forever.

The Campaign Is Over, but the Bickering Is Not for 12/07/2016

Wed, 07 Dec 2016 00:00:00 -0800

A hushed conference room with walls paneled in dark wood and a table seating no fewer than 20. Outside in the corridor, security guards patrol none too discreetly.

Douglas W. Elmendorf, dean of the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University, sits at the head of the table. He is a small, quiet man whose words carry the weight of a god.

Electoral College Belongs Back in 18th Century for 11/16/2016

Wed, 16 Nov 2016 00:00:00 -0800

A swanky bar in New York City. Dusk spreading across Central Park just across the street.

Everything in the joint is posh and polished, glistening and glowing. The dress code is elaborate and strictly enforced. It appears to be no burden on the customers, however, many of whom are wearing custom-made clothing for self-made people.

Donald Trump often implies he is self-made. And he is — as long as you don't count that first million-dollar loan from his father and an inheritance that was upward of $40 million.

Trump Now Must Feed the Beast for 11/09/2016

Wed, 09 Nov 2016 00:00:00 -0800

It is the world turned upside down.

Our new president-elect is not merely a bad choice; he is one of the nastiest choices imaginable.

If You Prick Me, Do I Not Bleed? for 11/02/2016

Wed, 02 Nov 2016 00:00:00 -0700

Of the 20,000 pages of emails hacked from the email account of Hillary Clinton's campaign chairman, John Podesta, only one really interests me.

It's the email he forwarded to his top aides on Nov. 19, 2015, in which he called me a prick.

4 Reasons Trump Is Trapped in Fantasyland for 10/26/2016

Wed, 26 Oct 2016 00:00:00 -0700

What is that freaky sound? What is that loud "ps-s-st" noise that we hear wherever we go?

Not to worry. It is just the air rushing out of Donald Trump's balloon.

King Donald Crowns Himself for 10/20/2016

Thu, 20 Oct 2016 00:00:00 -0700

History will note that Donald Trump had a chance, albeit a slim one, to become president of the United States.

But he moved the dial from slim to none Wednesday night, at the final presidential debate, when he said he might not accept the results of the Nov. 8 vote.

Trump Digs a Hole for 10/10/2016

Mon, 10 Oct 2016 00:00:00 -0700

Before the second presidential debate began, Donald Trump let it be known that he was going to go "nuclear" on Hillary Clinton.

I think he's going to need bigger nukes next time.

Kaine Gnaws on Pence and Won't Let Go for 10/05/2016

Wed, 05 Oct 2016 00:00:00 -0700

Until Tuesday night's vice presidential debate, Sen. Tim Kaine, D-Va., and Republican Gov. Mike Pence of Indiana had never met each other face to face.

Which was probably a good thing.

Trump, Who Needed to Be an 11, Was Barely a 4 for 09/28/2016

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 00:00:00 -0700

Donald Trump knows how to work a Republican room. Give him that.

Give him a gym packed full of yahoos wearing backward baseball caps and he'll bring down the rafters.

If You Can't Remember All Your Lies, You're Telling Too Many for 09/21/2016

Wed, 21 Sep 2016 00:00:00 -0700

Truth be told, it isn't really about Hillary anymore.

Her picture comes on the screen and you are very tempted to channel-surf away from it.

Pneumonia, Baskets and the Media: A Campaign in Three Acts for 09/13/2016

Tue, 13 Sep 2016 00:00:00 -0700

Which basket do you live in?

Let's say you are a supporter of Donald Trump's. And let's say that no psychotherapist has declared you a danger to yourself or others.

This Nuclear Election Booms to an End for 09/07/2016

Wed, 07 Sep 2016 00:00:00 -0700

On the day after Labor Day 16 years ago, The New York Times ran a story providing crucial information to the U.S. public — which is what The New York Times did in those days — informing them that their lives were about to change.

"Labor Day is the unofficial opening of the general election campaign," the paper declared.

Ask Dr. Politics: Which Potato Head Do You Want for President? for 08/31/2016

Wed, 31 Aug 2016 00:00:00 -0700

Ask Dr. Politics! You are fair, and I am unbalanced!

Q: I've been feeling very depressed lately, and I am wondering whether you can help.

Tired of Our Current Universe? Try Joining Trump for 08/24/2016

Wed, 24 Aug 2016 00:00:00 -0700

Even as a guy who won't release his tax returns, Donald Trump has become America's leading crime fighter.

He doesn't want people to know how much money he makes or how much he pays in taxes or how much he gives to charity.
