  • Polarizing Politics is More Fun Than Watching Miley Cyrus

    By Ilana Angel

    August 29, 2013 | 10:00 pm

    I am sick of all the attention Miley Cyrus is getting for acting like a moron. Her appearance at the MTV Video Music Awards was embarrassing, ridiculous, offensive, degrading, and simply not entertaining.  The poor girl is a mess and watching her self-destruct is sad. The fact is...

    By Andrew Dugan

    July 12, 2013 | 11:59 am

    LOS ANGELES. Predictably, liberals have already begun scrambling to connect last night’s devastating storm to Climate Change™ or Global Warming™ or whatever buzzword is trending as of late in that camp—and “don’t get it twisted”: that is exactly the plan. While millions of Southern...

    By Shmuel Rosner

    June 4, 2013 | 12:04 pm

    Our Israel Factor panel hasn't really changed its tune in recent months. It still believes Hillary Clinton is the best 2016 Presidential candidate as far as Israel is concerned. It still sees Andrew Cuomo as the number two Democratic candidate: Cuomo did just a little better than...

  • A gridlock bypass in Congress?

    By Raphael J. Sonenshein

    February 27, 2013 | 3:05 pm

    A remarkable thing happened in Washington, D.C., last week. National leaders of business and labor hammered out an outline on immigration reform. This might not only give a major boost to a new immigration policy; it might also show a path around the gridlock that has driven the...

  • Opinion: The Post-Kumbaya President

    By Marty Kaplan

    January 21, 2013 | 8:42 pm

    I wonder where Eric Cantor and Paul Ryan are having dinner tonight.

    November 1, 2012 | 10:30 am

  • The impact of the moderate Republican

    By Raphael J. Sonenshein

    October 17, 2012 | 5:09 pm

    On Oct. 28, 1980, a beleaguered President Jimmy Carter stood on a debate stage with his Republican challenger, former California Gov. Ronald Reagan.  Carter’s one chance to save his presidency depended on his ability to portray Reagan’s views as extreme. The best levers appeared to...

  • Conventional Wisdom

    By Elliot Steingart

    August 29, 2012 | 11:23 am

    It’s good to hear opposing viewpoints. It’s part of the reason I’m in a relationship. My girlfriend told me the name of the Hebrew God is Yahweh. I’ve been Jewish for 27 years and I’ve never heard of Yahweh. It’s worth listening to the other side even if the other side believes in...

    I was in New York for most of last week with my family.  We had a great time visiting friends, catching up on the art scene, sampling new restaurants and celebrating Pesach at Sammy’s on the lower east side, to which all I can say is one of the Real Housewives of New York sat at...

    As a lifelong Democrat, I never thought I would be in this place.  I never thought I would have to confront this dreaded unforeseen fear - the terror that is for me, dating a Republican.  I don’t even know very many Republicans.  But it turns out, I’m not alone.  Outside of...

    On the airplane that is taking me from New York to Iowa for a week of my favorite pastime – watching American politics in action – I’m reminded of a similar visit, four years ago almost to the day. I’m taking a look at the Iowa polls and am pondering the possibility that Ron Paul...
