May 2, 2016
Column: Trump, in his own words
WASHINGTON — One of the most effective political ads of the season features women repeating the many derogatory statements Donald Trump has made about the fairer sex. No editorial comment is needed when a candidate’s own words stand alone to expose his flaws, and thus to condemn...

Column: Black votes matter
CHARLESTON, S.C. — African-Americans in the South can’t get a break when it comes to voting, as history can’t deny. After all they’ve endured through slavery, Jim Crow and the fight for civil rights, their voices are still treated dismissively by tone-deaf politicians who...

Column: A trans-ient dilemma
WASHINGTON — As Archie Bunker might say, the world is going down the terlet. And how. Who could have predicted that politics would require serious discussion of who uses what restroom? Or, personally speaking, a second column? Alas, it seems that yet greater clarity is needed regarding...

Column: Karma tastes rich in new, humane economy
WASHINGTON — As the human circus of presidential politics has plodded along for what seems a decade now, a revolution has been taking place in the ever-more-dignified animal kingdom. Several victories in just the past few weeks have raised cheers, or their equivalent, in aquariums,...

Column: Fashion-backward in North Carolina
EASTON, Md. — It’s been a long while since South Carolina could look down upon its neighbor to the North. Thanks to North Carolina’s anti-LGBT legislation (HB2), also referred to as the “bathroom bill,” the state effectively has begun redefining itself from its long-popular...

Column: Pope Bernie
WASHINGTON — Imagine emerging from a rocky political week only to announce, as Bernie Sanders did, that, oh, by the way, the Vatican called. Actually, it was the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences, but close enough, I suppose. Hillary Clinton thought bubble: He’s Jewish for...

Column: The people's race
WASHINGTON — The spectacular strangeness of this presidential election may require a new display in Ripley’s Odditorium of believe-it-or-nots. Among the exhibits, curators might place the History of Conventional Wisdom, wherein the page titled “Populists Never Win in America”...

Column: Trump learns that thinking is hard
WASHINGTON — Donald Trump is learning how hard it is to pretend to be something he’s not. Case in point: Since deciding to run for president — and maybe before, but who knows? — Trump has insisted he is pro-life. America learned otherwise with his recent remarks that a woman...

Column: What did you do to stop him, Daddy?
WASHINGTON — Now that Donald Trump has spoken before the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), a pro-Israel lobbying group, Americans have learned the following: Trump can read a teleprompter; he finally got someone to write him a decent speech, which he was able to...

Column: Understanding the Islamic State
MIAMI BEACH — One wouldn’t call them bedfellows, strange or otherwise, but President Obama and Donald Trump are both inadvertently helping the Islamic State through rhetoric that is either too cautious or too rash. It shouldn’t be difficult to discern which is which. Obama,...

Column: Shame, shame, shame
WASHINGTON — As Donald Trump continues to surge forward as the most-likely Republican nominee, perfectly sane people are beginning to wonder: “Was there something we missed? Maybe he’s not really so bad?” Shed that self-doubt and purge the thought. You’re not wrong — and...

Column: Farewell, prince of tides
WASHINGTON — Soon after “The Prince of Tides” became a blockbuster movie in 1991, People magazine put the film’s leading man, Nick Nolte, on its cover as the “Sexiest Man Alive.” This couldn’t possibly be true, I thought (and wrote) at the time. Nolte, who played protagonist...

Column: The party's (almost) over
WASHINGTON — So it has come to this: A brokered convention or President Hillary Clinton. These options seem to be what’s left to Republicans of conscience, who are, let’s face it, rather Romney-come-latelys to the pyre. They’re based on the following evidence: It is highly...

Column: Inoculated against truth
WASHINGTON — By now it’s obvious that lecturing Donald Trump supporters about why they shouldn’t vote for him only confirms their convictions. If you’re part of the “establishment,” which approximately means anyone who has served in government or, grab your garlic garland,...

Column: The black and white of politics
FLORENCE, S.C. — If Donald Trump speaks for disenfranchised whites, Hillary Clinton speaks mostly to blacks who feel the same. But the differences in how people, left and right, perceive the world’s injustices — and the various approaches today’s presidential front-runners...
