Strong words of criticism for Linda McMahon are pretty weak

Opinion | Rusty Weiss

The knee-jerk reaction from the Democratic National Committee (DNC) immediately following her nomination is comical at best, and shows that her opposition is – as they say in the business – green, to say the least

(Lack of) Speed kills (a campaign)

In today’s divided political environment, gaining a competitive advantage over your opponent may make the difference of several hundred votes on Election Day. You never know, it could even change the course of history

The woman effect: From Kagan to Palin

Opinion | Pamela Varkony

Here we are, almost four decades after the start of the modern women’s movement, finally having a political impact from coast to coast and across the political spectrum. What we’ve always wanted is coming to pass: Women of all political persuasions are duking it out in the public arena, taking on each other…and the boys. They’re paying their dues, spending their own fortunes, and setting their own agendas

Let’s get physical

Opinion | Nicholas Thimmesch II

So what is the point of all this navel gazing when it comes to political candidates or elected officials and their medical records or conditions? I thought privacy was the operative word when it comes to medical records and current conditions: what gives?

Stay the course to win one for the Gipper

Opinion | Nicholas Thimmesch II

Washington: At the risk of being erroneously labeled a “Libertarian” (capital “L”) or even a “libertarian” (small “l”), let’s get this out of the way: Ron Paul, Ron Paul, Ron Paul. Indeed he did officially if not embarrassingly win the recent CPAC presidential preference poll (what “winners” get booed?”). The only thing that could have been worse would have been Sen. John McCain winning: ugh.

Opinion | John Rossomando

Republicans and conservatives in particular have been riding high as polls have shown independents moving away from the Democrats and toward them. This has especially been true since Sen. Scott Brown’s win last month in Massachusetts, in a seat once thought unwinnable for a Republican.

Opinion | Bob Medlock

Until just now, I knew I liked Sarah Palin but I hadn’t thought out my reasons. I just liked her. Now, challenged to explain why, I have to step back and look at where I’ve been and what has made me… me.

Opinion | Lou Cannon

Republicans, on the mend as the opposition but lacking a unifying leader, yearn for Ronald Reagan. Two decades after leaving office he is nostalgically remembered by many Americans as a reassuring leader who stayed the course at home and abroad and left our country happier and stronger than he found it. Even on the left, which savaged him when he was president, Reagan has won retrospective praise for producing the first-ever treaty to reduce U.S. and Soviet nuclear arsenals and ending the Cold War.
