  • Michele Bachmann Has Chutzpah To Think She Can Be President

    By Ilana Angel

    July 17, 2011 | 12:09 pm

    I find Michele Bachmann’s ignorance to be entertaining.  Since she has no shot in hell of ever being elected President, rather than being afraid of her politically, I simply find her ridiculous. The woman is a whack job and I will her prove my point by sharing some of her most...

  • Did Bristol Palin Get Pregnant by “Rapist”  Levi Johnston?

    By Ilana Angel

    June 28, 2011 | 2:01 am

    Bristol Palin is a sweet girl who is loving the spotlight and sucking every last opportunity out of it. Her new memoir, “Not Afraid of Life”, is a book I am never going to read.  That said, based on what I heard about her book, she should be ashamed of herself for saying things...

  • Oh Sarah Palin, what nonsense fell out of your mouth now…

    By Julia Bendis

    June 7, 2011 | 10:10 am

    Before I start, I’d just like to acknowledge that apparently, or should I say allegedly Sarah Palin’s knowledge of American history came from her misguided ten-year-old daughter.  That or she was raised by wolves in the forest.  That is the only explanation that I could find to her...

    By Julia Bendis

    April 7, 2011 | 2:24 pm

    While reading the newspaper, I stumbled upon an article talking about Sarah Palin’s daughter, Bristol.  Apparently, being an unwed teenage Mother in this country really pays off!  Bristol was named an Ambassador of Candie’s Foundation to speak and spread awareness about being a...

    It Can't Happen Here

  • Adlai Stevenson, JFK, Obama and the Jewish vote

    By Raphael J. Sonenshein

    October 28, 2008 | 2:43 pm

    One of my earliest political memories is the 1960 presidential campaign. 

    We were an Adlai Stevenson family and as a little boy I rooted for the former Illinois governor and presidential candidate to come from behind to win the Democratic presidential nomination.

  • ANALYSIS: Rough race takes toll on McCain’s image

    October 27, 2008 | 7:23 pm

    NEW YORK (JTA)—When John McCain stopped in New York one Tuesday in October 2007 to make his pre-primaries pitch to a room full of Jewish bigwigs, he spent virtually all his time discussing foreign policy—but only after an emotional introduction from James Tisch that focused less on...

    Most Jews live in three states, two of which, New York and California, are already in the bank for Sen. Barack Obama.

    It's the third one, Florida, that has the presidential campaigns in a frenzy. There are roughly 650,000 Jews in Florida, out of 18 million residents. Concentrated in...

    John McCain and Sara Palin have been complaining that there's too much "gotcha journalism" going around.

    If only.

    When they say "gotcha journalism," what they're really trying to do, of course, is to demonize journalism itself -- to de-legitimize asking tough questions, and...

    By Marty Kaplan

    September 29, 2008 | 1:01 am

    Let me hedge my bet.

    At the vice presidential debate, the talking points Sarah Palin's handlers have been stuffing her head with will come out of her mouth so butchered that even Republican voters will say, like Kurtz in "Heart of Darkness": "The horror, the horror!"
