BIDEN CAN LOSE

I can’t get John Kennedy or Ronald Reagan or Bill Clinton or Barack Obama out of my mind. They are my idea of Candidates for President of the United States. Happy Warriors. Cut from the same cloth as the original Happy Warrior, Al Smith, four-time Governor of New York State, and the first Catholic nominated

BERNIE AND AMY: WHY NOT?

Bernie Sanders was the most impressive person on the stage last night at the Democrat Debate. He believes what he says and communicates at gut level. Conservatives love to call liberals hypocrites. It’s hard to make that charge stick against a guy who gets his suits at Goodwill and haircuts for free at the Barber

DEMOCRATIC PARTY DRAFT TICKET: PELOSI-MUELLER

Our Country needs an Intervention. We need the best we’ve got. Nancy Pelosi and Bob Mueller are the best we’ve got. Donald Trump and Sarah Sanders and Stephen Miller and Jared Kushner and Robert Barr are not the best we have. They’ve shown themselves to be a second string collection of liars and opportunists who

IlHAN OMAR IS GOING TO BE ALL RIGHT

Of all the possible people in the world there are to worry about, you can take Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) off your list for now. She’s going to be OK. The little lady went through a rough patch but came out just fine. After escaping war-torn Somalia and living in a refugee camp four years

HIT HIM IN THE BASE

You want to beat Trump? Hit him in the base. But in a nice way. Sort of like how Reagan beat Carter and Kennedy beat Nixon and Obama beat Romney. Cheerful, with a bit of self deprecating humor, not angry. More mensch not momzer. (Harry Truman was a mensch, Rick Santorum a momzer). What we

“JEW HATERS”…AND OTHER WORDS TO KILL DEBATE

“Jew Haters.” Nasty language, right? Absolutely. But it can get worse. How about “Jew hating anti-semite?” The double-whammy. That’s the language that came out of the mouth of Morton Klein, President of the Zionist Organization of America. Klein directed that language at Barack Obama. Obama’s offense in Klein’s addled mind? In 2016, then President Obama

NOBODY KNOWS ANYTHING

About twelve years ago I was in Florida, somewhere between Tampa and Orlando, watching a golf tournament. I’m walking down the street in a little town with The New York Times under my arm. A lady about fifty, probably Jewish probably New Yorker, comes up to me and demands…”where did you get that New York

WE’D BE BETTER OFF IF HE WAS A DRUNK.

Yeah, I’m talking about Trump, our president. At least if he was a drunk, there could be an intervention. He could get help. Get in a program. AA. Something. Unfortunately, he’s stone cold sober. We’re seeing Trump at the top of his game. This is who he is. We’re on notice. How much more do

BANNON!

Steve Bannon has a problem. He’s in a tribal fight against the toughest, most effective political tribe in the country, the American Jewish Community, and Bannon’s tribe, Irish Catholics, disbanded 40 years ago. They don’t wear their brass knuckles anymore and they only meet on St. Patrick’s Day. We’re not cohesive and we don’t support

CHANNELING REAGAN I END UP FOR BERNIE

I'm for candidates that are capable of looking at the 7.4 billion people in the world as part of a human family, even if they live in Iran or Israel or Mexico or Mali or Gaza or Gabon. I'm for candidates that are capable of doing the right thing even though it involves confronting and
