Column: Hurray for John Oliver
WASHINGTON -- Every couple of years or so, I feel the need to whine about the plight of newspapers. It's August. I'm Trumped out. So today's the day. Except that HBO's John Oliver beat me to it with the best defense of newspapers -- ever. His recent "Last Week Tonight with John...

Column: Trump's head case
WASHINGTON -- Two years ago, Karl Rove caused a stir when he planted a seed that Hillary Clinton might have suffered brain damage from a fall. My, how things have changed. Today, Clinton's brain seems to be working just fine, though it's less than clear that Donald Trump's is....

Column: Fox and friends with benefits
WASHINGTON -- No one would mistake Roger Ailes for a ladies man, at least not without a fistful of dollars -- or a garter belt. So emerges a fresh image of the man who created Fox News, the cable network known for its leggy, law-degreed female hosts. Ailes, like Hugh Hefner, knew...

Column: Should we all be Democrats now?
HILADELPHIA -- A longtime Republican friend texted just as the Democratic National Convention was burying itself in balloons: "I'm sorry," she said, "I'm a Democrat." Another Republican friend called after President Obama spoke Wednesday night: "I'm sorry," he said. "I'm a Democrat."...

Column: Night and day
PHILADELPHIA -- If political conventions tell us anything beyond the predictable, the one held last week in Cleveland and the other going on this week in Philadelphia pose contrasts so stark that one wonders if the two groups hail from the same country. Hint: One of them didn't present...

Column: You know what they say ...
CLEVELAND -- Imitation may be the highest form of flattery, but plagiarism, not so much. This is especially so if you're Melania Trump on opening night at the Republican National Convention. Or, is it? By the reaction, both within and without the campaign, you'd have thought the...

Column: Who will keep us safe?
WASHINGTON -- Nice, France. Of all places. But of course a terrorist in love with death would choose one of the world's most beautiful coastal cities to mow down innocents in a moment of celebration. There are no words.

Column: Eye of the beholder
NEW YORK -- By now most Americans know the name of Dallas Police Chief David Brown -- and quite a few wouldn't mind seeing him play a larger national role. I hear Republicans are looking for a substitute nominee. Brown is admired not only as a defender of law and order but also...

Column: America's killing fields
WASHINGTON -- Horror. Shock. Disbelief. Numbness. Grief. Anger. And terrible sadness. These fractured thoughts were all I could muster upon waking Friday to news of the ambush on Dallas police. They were still fresh in my mind from the night before when I'd turned in early,...

Column: Bill-gate, again
WASHINGTON -- But of course Bill Clinton wants his wife to become president of the United States and make history as the nation's first female commander in chief. Why, he'd be pleased as punch and proud as proud can be. Plus, it would be tons of fun to return to the White House as...

Column: Brexit, meet Trexit
WASHINGTON -- With Britain's vote to leave the European Union, did Donald Trump just win the presidential election? On the surface, this may seem an odd question, but the concerns that led a majority of Brits to vote "leave" on Thursday are similar to those that have catapulted...

WASHINGTON -- If you turned on cable TV news Monday, chances are good that you caught Corey Lewandowski fibbing that he doesn't have a clue why Donald Trump fired him as his campaign manager. Of course he knows.

Column: Repeat, retreat and reload
WASHINGTON -- The arguments for and against gun control are so familiar by now, we might as well hit replay and skip the debate. In the wake of the horrific murders of 49 people in an Orlando gay nightclub, America is re-enacting the usual drama: Politicians repeat past arguments,...
