Who can forget this snippet of wisdom from 2010?

I’d say June 2014 was a pretty good month for that old document.

Last week the Supremes shot down Obama’s “recess” appointments because under that old document, they were not really recess appointments.

And also free speech buffer zones, because even people...

If Hillary Clinton runs for President, she’s still the odds-on favorite because she has the Democratic machine behind her.

The conventional wisdom is that the nomination is Hillary’s to lose. If Hillary’s disastrous book rollout and tone-deafness about her wealth are any indication, Hillary might just accomplish the unthinkable of imploding a...

The title sounds absurd, doesn’t it?

Absurd as in your Republican Party circa 2014, where winning at any cost is the operative strategy.

Not winning against Democrats at any cost — no that would be mean.

Winning at any cost in the Republican Party means winning against Tea Party and conservative challengers in...

New York Congressional District 22 is in the heart of central upstate New York, a mostly rural or semi-rural district that runs from Utica in the north to Johnson City-Endicott and Binghamton in the south.
