The unexpected news that Antonin Scalia died was a punch in the gut.

It reminded me of when I first heard that Andrew Breitbart had died — my wife saw it on Twitter and asked whether it was true. Her comment about Breitbart applies equally to Scalia,

It’s Friday afternoon.

This should get the holiday weekend off to a nice, quiet start.

Donald Trump, angry that negative ads are being run against him, is threatening to sue to keep Ted Cruz out of the race based on the claim that Cruz is not a “natural born Citizen” and not eligible....

In all the news noise over the Iowa caucuses, a decision by the Illinois Board of Elections passed almost entirely under the radar.

There was much hoopla when two voters filed a challenge to Ted Cruz appearing on the ballot because Cruz allegedly was not a “natural born Citizen” and ineligible. (My...

Three weeks after his inauguration, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed the Cullen-Harrison Act, legalizing the sale of beer and wine with the alcohol content of 3.2%. The “3.2%...

Florida representative Alan Grayson has a reputation for being a little “out there.”

When he’s not making bizarre claims about GOP health care plans, calling female lobbyists “K Street whores,” or running blatantly false and manipulated ads, Grayson apparently likes to muse about against whom he can take legal action.
