A Fool and His Money are Soon Parted
For as much as the Democrats like to complain about the Koch brothers, most of the big time financiers of “shadowy” election groups are liberals. One of the more prominent of these financiers has been billionaire Tom Steyer, who has pumped $65 million of his personal money this cycle into campaigns opposing Republicans. Specifically, though, Steyer promised to make an issue out of “climate change” and to | Read More »
Salon.com’s Infantile Leftism
Joan Robinson was a famous Keynesian economist and also a not so famous Maoist. Nonetheless she had one shrewd observation about politics. People, she said, can no more see their own ideology than they can smell their own breath. The Internet magazine Salon, a large leftwing website for which I was a much unloved columnist fifteen years ago, provides an interesting case in point. Joan | Read More »
Voting is for adults
An impending Democrat loss brings out all sorts of panicky complaints from the media that democracy urgently needs renovation. Lower the voting age!

Why I Voted Yes On Question 1 (NY)
As a conservative Republican, I don’t have many hard choices come the general election. I voted for Rob Astorino for Governor, a worthy choice who deserved better than the thrashing he’s going to get at the hands of Andrew Cuomo, and for the GOP nominee for State Comptroller. There was no Republican nominee at all for Congress, State Senate or State Assembly – a particularly | Read More »
The Colorado Midterm: Last Take Before the Count
“While it is true that recent elections have trended in favor of Democrats within the state, and the make up of Colorado’s government has Democrats in charge of all the levers of power, it disregards one of the fundamental laws of politics: The Pendulum Swings.” I wrote those words in May of 2013 in response to a Denver Post article that had declared Colorado to | Read More »

To honor both Sabo’s gift and Wendy Davis’s campaign that provided months of | Read More »
