    A Terrible, No Good, Awful Night for Barack Obama

    One initial point to ponder: if the No-H8 campaign tries to fire up in North Carolina as the No-A1 campaign, people will wonder why they are campaigning against steak sauce.

The marriage definition was put into | Read More »

    Tomorrow, Retire Dick Lugar

    I really do adore Peggy Noonan. I respect her opinion and I love her writing. I take issue with her support of Richard Lugar, however.Peggy Noonan writes that Indiana should “save the old guy.
