Keith Olbermann, who ran approximately 943,347 stories on how Karl Rove, Scooter Libby, Dick Cheney and probably even George W. Bush should go to prison because—as it turned out—Richard Armitage “leaked’ the name of a CIA bureaucrat whose husband had already listed her in Who’s Who, Friday night had this response to the revelation that [...]

If we were living in Middle Earth what would Zinn and Chomsky’s political commentary sound like?

In my new book, Why Are Jews Liberals?, I argue that it no longer makes any sense for so many of my fellow Jews to go on aligning themselves with the forces of the Left. I also try to show that our interests and our ideals, both as Americans and as Jews, have come in […]

Newsweek Talks About Sarah Palin – Sort Of


When it comes to talk of President Obama, Newsweek editor Evan Thomas couldn’t find his way out of a hyperbole bag with a map of moderation. He is completely, indisputably “in the bag” for Obama.
“I mean in a way Obama’s standing above the country, above – above the world, he’s sort of God.”
