What a nice new package. But all the wrong questions.  Also a way for Bill Maher to run from the losing team and restate his old Libertarian bonifides.

Mitt Romney best Republican bet for 2016

  Tom Toles missed the head clown who is the only one who has said he is actually going to run for President in 2016, Ben Carson. What do we call Ben Carson?  The 5%? Reflecting the 95% of African Americans who vote for Democrats? Crazier than Alan Keyes and dumber than Herman Cain. How…

Smart bombs and smart girls, Lukovich cartoon

There is some unpopular pragmatism. Smart women create more democracy and drones work. Here in America it is not so much smart women, but smart people we don’t like. After all, they tell us many things we don’t like hearing. How much power does the media have?  In the early 2000s about 10% of us…

Rand Paul, the mouse that squeaked, Schorr Cartoon

Rand Paul wins CPAC straw poll by 20 points

It is little wonder that the three most extreme conservatives topped the list at the extreme conservative CPAC straw poll this weekend.
