Newt Gingrich & his primary appeal

When Newt Gingrich called CNN anchor John King's decision "despicable" to begin last Thursday's GOP debate with a question about Gingrich's second wife, the Charleston audience responded with a standing ovation. Surely, I thought to myself, South Carolina Republicans are not going to vote for a candidate just because he is good at dressing down the media.

Colbert’s egotism isn’t fake

Late-night comedians historically have relished the opportunity to poke fun at politicians. Sometimes they savage them. In the Obama era, they haven't been so enthusiastic about any of it. A recent study of political jokes on three late-night shows (Letterman, Leno and Jimmy Fallon) by the Center for Media and Public Affairs found that Barack Obama's joke count is "substantially lower than any other president."

So long to the party of family values

When someone asks when the Republican Party abandoned its longstanding position as the party of family values, we will all be able to say that it was shortly after 8 p.m. Eastern Standard time on Jan. 19, 2012, in Charleston, S.C.

Perry’s death by debate

When former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman exited the GOP presidential primary earlier this month, left-leaning columnists were bereft. Huntsman, after all, was the Republican most respected by non-Republicans. In December, New York Times number-crunching blogger Nate Silver laid out the case for "Jon Huntsman's Path to Victory." It turns out that path sustained itself through one state, New Hampshire, where he came in third. When he pulled out, Times columnist Frank Bruni wrote a fond farewell, in which - sometimes it's hard to let go - he floated the possibility of a 2016 run. The Atlantic's James Fallow also ...

Hollywood’s snotty day in court

It was symbolically perfect that on the same day Hollywood went to the Supreme Court to make the case for broadcast profanity, Entertainment Weekly reported that the next showing of the ABC smutcom "Modern Family" would feature a two-year-old girl dropping the F-bomb. The episode's title will be "Little Bo Bleep."

The SF Sheriff and the accusations

After a New Year's Eve fight, former Venezuelan TV actress Eliana Lopez went to the home of neighbor Ivory Madison to talk about her husband's behavior. Madison later told police that she took video of a bruise on her friend's arm and had texts Lopez had sent that documented spousal abuse.

Echoes of World War II in Normandy

No one told me that January is the wrong time to visit Normandy (until afterwards, that is). Most of the places we went to visit were closed. It was cold and wet and rainy. It took more than three hours each way. But I haven't been to France in fifteen years, and who knows (especially after this trip) when I will go again.

Gingrich should own up to his mistakes

As the results of the Iowa caucuses dribbled in, Americans got to see how the GOP candidates greeted victory and defeat. Top vote-getter Mitt Romney was gracious toward Rick Santorum, who came in second by eight thin votes, but uninspiring as he pledged to get America back to work. Santorum pronounced, "Game on," and then he hailed his Italian grandfather's decision to leave Italy to dig coal if that's what it took to bring his family to the United States.

Fight back & organize in 2012

It's a new year, at last. I say "at last" because 2011 was a rough ride, politically.

The people have spoken

The people have spoken - all 126,185 of them. That's how many votes turned Mitt Romney into the Republican nominee, for all intents and purposes. In a country with more than 300 million people, less than a tenth of a half of a percent have picked one of the two men who could be the next president of the United States.

Unseat these atrocious moderators

Sitting through the Republican debate on Saturday night with ABCs George Stephanopoulos was just painful, from beginning to end. Some of it was just political Ambien. But when it was finally over, there was just one question: Who in the GOP in his or her right mind invites a historically shameless Democratic spin controller like Stephanopoulos to "moderate" a primary debate like this - ever?
