    Here’s Kyle Clark grilling Republican Cory Gardner, who went on to oust Mark Udall from his Colorado senate seat in 2014:

    “You continue to deny that the federal Life at Conception Act which you sponsor is a personhood bill to end abortion, and we are not going to debate that...

  • Learning to argue on Tisha b’Av

    July 31, 2014 | 11:20 am

    As we approach Tisha b’Av, the State of Israel is at war. The day’s commemoration of sorrow and pain, and urgent calls for introspection and reflection, couldn’t be coming at a more needed time.
