I’m frankly at a loss to square this. Mr. Romney appears to be an upstanding guy in so many respects and is unquestionably a leader in his church . . . yet there he was working to help tobacco companies sell a product his church abhors (Monday’s post), and here he is authorizing […]
I think my beloved beach shack may be washing away as I type this but there’s nothing I can do about that and, truth be told, I’d rather lose the house than the Supreme Court. So (hoping you, too, are warm, dry, and safe) here goes:
WE’RE GOING TO WIN
First off, I’m not dead. When I wrote Friday “if there’s column tomorrow you’ll know [the yogurt] didn’t kill me” I forgot it was Friday — and that there’s never a new column Saturday. But here I am, all but equine in my healthiness. And to those of you who asked what I was […]
EAST COAST RESIDENTS:
Today would be a smart day to stock up on all the food and drink and candles and batteries and medicine you’d need in case Hurricane Sandy shuts things down for a while. Seriously: Better safe than sorry. Ideally, none of what you buy will be needed, so be sure it’s mostly […]
The idea that anyone would abandon tikkun olam because they want lower taxes is . . . depressing.
The idea that anyone would abandon tikkun olam (the Jewish calling to “heal the world”) because they think Romney is better on Israel is . . . arguably even worse. Because it’s just not true. I’ve linked […]

WINNING THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE WITH 22% OF THE VOTE
So I don’t know exactly where Syria is, either — but I’m not proposing to relieve the President of his job. (No, Mitt: Syria is not Iran’s path to the sea. For starters, it doesn’t border Iran; for finishers, if the blue parts of this map represent water, as I’m all but certain they […]
TO KNOW HIM IS TO REJECT HIM
The three states that know Mitt best are Massachusetts, Michigan, and Utah.
What does it say about the former governor of Massachusetts that he left office with a 34% approval rating — during good economic times?
What does it say that he trails in the Michigan polls, where […]
Governor Romney keeps guaranteeing that if we elect him, rich folks won’t pay any less in tax than they do now. Yet if you listen closely, you’ll hear that what he’s actually saying is that they won’t pay a lower SHARE of the overall tax burden than now. What he never admits is that will […]
I promise you, the billionaires are coming; but . . . there’s so much else crowding them out:
As others have noted: it’s both the percentage of Americans for whom Mr. Romney feels contempt (“I’ll never convince them that they should take personal responsibility and care for for their lives”) and the job creation […]
