Judge Robert H. Bork, one of the the greatest jurists this country...

I’m not predicting that the mandate or the entirety of Obamacare will go down at the Supreme Court.  But based on the oral arguments, those who support the law are in a state of panic.

Digging back into Memeorandum from March 23, 2010, when Obamacare was signed into law, is like opening a time...

Of course, it takes a publication like Mother Jones to pull this stuff up, but it hasn’t received a lot of attention since it was published in October.

There’s a curious reference to Teddy having to work in Washington in order for Massachusetts to pass Romneycare.

24 years ago a new term was coined, “borking” or “to bork.”  It is a tactic in which Democrats still revel, except when they feel they are on the receiving end at which point they cry foul.

Borking is the complete politicization of the judicial nomination process, in which bad motives are...

He did, in 1961 while visiting Santiago, Chile, while he was an Assistant District Attorney of Suffolk County (Boston), Massachusetts (not clear if this was on the taxpayers’ dime):

“While Kennedy was in Santiago he made arrangements to ‘rent’ a brothel for an entire night. Kennedy allegedly invited one of the Embassy chauffeurs to...

At least I’ve recognized that I have a problem, which is the first step, right?

Just when you thought it was over:

With speculation mounting that US Representative William D. Delahunt will not seek reelection, Joseph P. Kennedy III, son of the former congressman and great-grandson of the Kennedy family patriarch, is eyeing a run to succeed him in the 10th Congressional District, senior Democratic sources say.

The bowing out of Patrick Kennedy is a plus, on many different levels. But this positive should not be construed as a guarantee that the seat will leave the Democratic Party.

Everyone is wondering why. If I weren’t such a humble person, I might suggest the following:

Martha Coakley’s slap-shots fired at Fenway Park fans and devout Catholics, her vacation in the middle of a special election, her refusal to debate one-on-one, her D.C. lobbyist fundraiser, and her denial that she witnessed the subsequent assault on a reporter, all have people bewildered as to how Coakley could be...
