Making 2016′s “Big Tent” Strategy Work

Posted by  ▪  December 29, 2014

Bigger, brighter, and 100% more willing to work for votes

“The faces of the Republican Party’s most ambitious members are changing,” says the latest MSM mini-mashup of the GOP’s 2016 presidential hopes. In the same breath, after describing Republicans’ sweep of the midterms, comes the inevitable chaser: The GOP’s success may be misleading, however. I’ve watched the Republican machine during the past…

BREAKING: Medicaid Docs refuse to work for peanuts

Posted by  ▪  December 29, 2014

No one saw this coming, no one.

For months, nay years, I have been predicting that the promise of quality healthcare for the poor via rapidly expanded Medicaid enrollments was a house of cards, a fraud, a three-card monte game, a sham, a man-made disaster, a Gruberesque fake meant to deceive the “stupid” people into believing that the…

Run Liz Run Elizabeth Warren for President Video Netroots Hands Up

Elizabeth Warren, Presidential Nominee if she wants it

Posted by  ▪  December 29, 2014

My column at The Boston Herald, “Will Elizabeth Warren sell ‘outside the bubble’?”

Ignore the polls showing Hillary up by 50%+ over potential Democratic rivals. Elizabeth Warren “is not” running. Everyone knows (or assumes) Hillary is. The second Warren declares she’s seeking the nomination, if she declares, the polls will narrow. The second Warren goes after Hillary as the crony-capitalist, contrived-candidate that she is, the polls would…

2014: The year the Constitution lived dangerously

Posted by  ▪  December 28, 2014

My column at USA Today.

As part of my continuing efforts to reach new audiences, I have a column at USA Today, Constitution’s horrible, no good, very bad year: As 2014 comes to a close, it’s worth considering the Obama administration legacy as we head into 2015.

Zhdanova had “God is a woman” scribbled on her naked torso as she accosted the infant and attempted to flee. Vatican police intervened, returned baby Jesus to His…

Rape law is a “trigger.” Should we stop teaching it?

Posted by  ▪  December 28, 2014

Or, should we allow students to “opt out?”

Should teaching the law of sexual assault and rape be banned from law school classrooms because it could be a “triggering” event for some students? Apparently, there is a movement to do just such a thing. Earlier this month, Harvard Law professor Jeannie Suk wrote a wonderful article at the New Yorker discussing…
