Hillary Clinton and Income Inequality

It looks like we won’t be hearing much about income inequality from Hillary Clinton when she runs for president. And that’s too bad. Sure, it would be fun to hear Hillary drone on and on the way liberal Democrats do about how unfair it is that the rich have so much and the poor don’t….

When Smart People Say and Do Stupid Things …

I’m never surprised when stupid people say stupid things. But when smart people say stupid things, I want to know more.

She was a high school valedictorian, a Phi Beta Kappa at Stanford, and…

Democrats Care, Republicans Hate You

Good day, class.  Today we’re going to discuss the midterm elections, which are only five months away.  Today’s class will be short.  The lesson is simple.

They don’t see things the same way on taxes or climate change or affirmative action or abortion or a lot of other issues. But there is one item that should garner bipartisan support. And that is that Eleanor Clift, the…

Bulletin: Most Journalists Are Not Liberal Democrats — Just Ask Them

Get this:  Despite what you thought, most American journalists aren’t liberal Democrats.  I know this because that’s what the journalists told two pollsters from the University of Indiana.  Turns out that most journalists are independents.  And journalists wouldn’t lie, right? First let me state the obvious:  the poll is ridiculous. It found that in 2013…
