The only possible way to stop her is to prove that she knowingly perjured herself and didn’t simply “misspeak.”
As horrified as I am by her right-wing views, I’m resigned to the fact that attempting to stop someone based on her judicial opinions is a losing cause.
I realize it’s crying over spilt milk, but frankly, I think the Democrats really…[Read more]

I for one sleep more easily knowing that Sen. Kennedy is on Capital Hill.
You might almost think that there was nothing substantive about the debate.

I was just a kid but in addition to watching the movie, I read both “I Am Third” and “A Short Season.”
The movie also introduced me to the great Michel Legrand. More than a master of composing sentimental themes, he was a great and versatile musician and occasionally even an actor.
