This Harry Reid is lost

So it turns out Harry Reid didn't really think that the war in Iraq was "lost" and that the U.S. "surge" in 2007 was a mistake. At least that is what the desperate Senate majority leader would like Nevada...

No one's clean on election cash

As the election drew closer, outside groups run by some of the party's canniest political operatives pumped millions of dollars into key races. Newly formed and with innocuous-sounding names, they ran slashing attack ads. Party leaders on the other...

O'Donnell campaign channels Antoine Dodson

With the release of her third ad of the Delaware Senate campaign, Christine O'Donnell finally broke away from her creepy "I'm you" ads. They really made me question myself on so many levels. Anyway, the Republican nominee's "Tax man"...

The morality of trade with China

Before heading off to recess, the House of Representatives overwhelmingly passed a bill authorizing imposing tariffs on Chinese goods unless China stops manipulating its currency. The House's action has sent off a storm of warnings in The Post and...

Valerie Jarrett is no Tony Perkins

Valerie Jarrett, senior adviser to President Obama, has taken her lumps since my video interview with her was posted yesterday. We talked about infrastructure and her concern about the rash of nationally reported suicides of gay youth. Unfortunately, she...

Christine O'Donnell is just...wow... [updated]

Christine O'Donnell is that person who thinks she can say things she doesn't really know as long as she does it without a hint of doubt. That person in high-school debate who manipulates her audience with stage presence and...

George Clooney yells 'fire!' about Sudan

George Clooney says he recently found himself sleeping overnight in a small hut in southern Sudan. A sign inside offered some blunt advice: If the structure catches fire, run outside and shout, "Fire, fire!" On Tuesday Clooney came to...

Valerie Jarrett, Obama's senior adviser, speaks to me

Valerie Jarrett, senior adviser to President Obama, sat with me Monday to talk infrastructure and bullying. An odd selection of topics, I know. But both are relevant. Earlier that day, Obama held a Rose Garden event to spotlight a...

"Don't ask, don't tell": don't appeal

Three cheers for the ruling by U.S. District Judge Virginia Phillips ordering an immediate end to the "don’t ask, don't tell" policy that bans military service by those who are openly gay. Phillips is right that this policy "infringes...

A response to Jonah Goldberg on anti-elitism

Jonah Goldberg of the National Review has responded at some length to the column I wrote on Tuesday about meritocracy. His response made me think that there is still more to say on this subject. Goldberg seems to think...

Maybe the Dems should lose the House?

At the conclusion of MSNBC coverage of the One Nation rally earlier this month, anchor Alex Witt asked me what I thought the headline would be. I didn't exactly come up with a headline, but after seeing the crowds...

Court blocks don't ask don't tell -- and I'm angry

If you believe in fairness, then you cannot help but be overjoyed by the worldwide and immediate injunction against enforcement of the shameful ban on gay men and lesbians serving openly in the military issued this afternoon by a...

GOP parade of horribles: Carl Paladino

Today's editorial pretty much expresses my views on the rash of suicides of gay youth, the awful sexual torture of three gay men in New York and how windbag bigots like Republican candidate for New York governor Carl Paladino...

Jerry Brown: wrong word, fair point

No one should ever refer to another person, even privately, as the political equivalent of a for-profit sex worker. For example, Supreme Court Justice Samuel F. Miller was wrong to label Sen. Reverdy Johnson a "political prostitute" in an...

Is Vince Gray worried about a Fenty write-in campaign?

It appears that there is little standing in the way of D.C. Council Chairman Vincent C. Gray becoming the city's next mayor. He handily defeated Mayor Adrian M. Fenty in the Sept. Democratic primary and faces just token opposition...

One of the reasons some Democrats are confident that they'll retain the House (by their fingernails, perhaps) is because "we have better candidates," as one senior Democratic Party official said at a briefing last week. That's a polite way...
