When is it OK to punch a Nazi?
Captain America did this kind of thing all the time.
It is hard to decouple Obama’s presidency from my personal life, but as he spends his last day in office, I can’t help but wish he stayed longer.
Trump is an affront to my values and sense of decency. Why on earth would I want him to succeed?
“November 8, 2016, 4pm. My boss swings by my desk. She’s smiling, putting her coat on, talking of champagne with neighbors. She leaves, I check Facebook. Lots of selfies. One from Liv- white pantsuit, red ‘I voted’ sticker, red lipstick to match. It’s all planned. I close it. I flash back to 2004, downtown Hilton, DNC headquarters. A young democrat plays a hopeful melody on the lobby piano while we all get drunk in the ballroom bracing for victory, which never comes.”

What do you think is going to happen? Let us all make fools of ourselves.
Ted Cruz’s role was more indirect than that of his rivals. But he could have done more.
We disregard left-wing criticism of the political and economic system at our own peril.
Prediction: Whichever candidate gets 51% of the vote will win.
John Kasich ran a vanity campaign that never really began. He was the last opponent to drop out.
Jeb gave it the old college try, with $100 million.
