It's shameful that NRA-owned Republicans in Congress won't at least try to address the issue of gun violence.

The Bundys and their terrorist buddies have been charged. These heavily armed criminals are the real faces of treason and terrorism in the United States.

Even the Republicans who try to pass themselves off as a sane alternative are just as bad as the rest. John Kasich, for example.

We lost Chris Christie from the presidential race recently. He was a terrible candidate, but he performed one valuable service for us all--exposing Marco Rubio.

We can't forget about the horrible Republican debate last night. These people ... there are no words.
Does anyone believe a Republican president with a year left wouldn't make a Supreme Court appointment? Is anyone surprised that Republicans plan to obstruct Obama's Supreme Court nominee?
I didn't agree with Antonin Scalia on much (if anything), but I grieve for his family in their time of mourning. At our most basic, human level, all lives are meaningful, and all deaths are tragic. And I send out a wish to the universe that Ruth Bader Ginsberg lives forever.

Diplomacy is slow, serious, difficult work. Diplomacy doesn't play well in the sound-bite news cycle. But diplomacy can save lives. Thank you, John Kerry.

Like the character in the Super Bowl ad, Trump is three awesome things combined: ignorance, arrogance, and bigotry.

Did you hear about the politician with the email scandal? If a Republican did it, probably not. The so-called "liberal media" is fixated on Hillary Clinton and ignoring Republicans who did the same or far worse.
Republican e-mail scandals:
Jeb Bush used his private e-mail account as Florida governor to discuss security and military issues such as troop deployments to the Middle East and the protection of nuclear plants. The e-mails include two series of exchanges involving details of Florida National Guard troop deployments after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, the review by The Washington Post found. Bush took more than seven years “to comply fully with a Florida public records statute” on email disclosure.
George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, and Karl Rove: Lost as many as five million emails, covering a two-year span. The emails had been run through private accounts controlled by the Republican National Committee and were only supposed to be used for dealing with non-administration political campaign work to avoid violating ethics laws. Yet congressional investigators already had evidence private emails had been used for government business, including to discuss the firing of one of the U.S. attorneys. The RNC accounts were used by 22 White House staffers, including then-Deputy Chief of Staff Karl Rove, who reportedly used his RNC email for 95 percent of his communications. Under federal law, the White House is required to maintain records."
Mitt Romney: Wiped his administration's email from the state's server. Eleven of his aides purchased and took their state-issued hard drives. They replaced the remaining computers in the governor's office before Romney's Democratic successor, Deval Patrick, took office.
Marco Rubio deleted emails from his private account during his tenure in state government, despite using his personal account to conduct business related to his official duties.
Scott Walker got caught running a secret e-mail network for his inner circle of advisers when he was Milwaukee County executive.
Rick Perry and Bobby Jindal: Both Republican governors conducted official business from their private email accounts and have not released the emails for public scrutiny.
Chris Christie: Christie administration was chastised because members of its own staff communicated through private emails. And that criticism came not from Governor Christie’s political foes, but from lawyers hired by his team to investigate the burgeoning George Washington Bridge lane-closing scandal.
Former Secretary of State Colin Powell and aides to his successor Condoleezza Rice had confidential and secret information in their personal emails.
Trey Gowdy demanded all of Clinton's private emails, including those not related to government matters, but refused to release any of his own.
Sarah Palin: Nearly a month of her emails are missing, a gap that raises questions about what other emails might also be missing from what’s being nationally reported as her record as Alaska governor.
Rick Snyder: Withheld emails relating to his administration's role in the ongoing Fling, Michigan, water sabotage crisis.
