I miss Mel Gibson. Well, I miss his work in the movies, anyway. Though I thoroughly enjoyed the action heroes he portrayed early in his career, like Mad Max and Lethal Weapon’s Martin Riggs, I’m particularly fond of his work as a director.

I like Dick Cheney, but more importantly I respect him. I know such a confession will earn me immediate, impassioned condemnation from our friends on the left, and probably even from some on the right.

The mainstream media clearly has a fascination with the duo’s awkward attempt to begin another national dialogue on racism, but I honestly find stuff like this to be sophomoric…

Man Holding Up an Infant

Soon after I became a father for the first time, I found myself experiencing an unexpected, nagging sensation of inadequacy. The reason behind it had nothing to do with anything bad going on in my life. In fact, my life was actually progressing along quite well. I had a good job, owned a nice home,…

Last week, the Washington Post ran an interesting piece by pollster Andrew Kohut, former president of both the Pew Research Center and the Gallup Organization. The column, entitled “The Numbers Prove It: The GOP Is Estranged From America”, cites a recent Pew poll showing that the Republican Party’s public approval rating  now stands at a…
