Oprah’s Politics Club

I don’t doubt Oprah Winfrey’s marketing magic, although we don’t know yet whether she can do for politics what she’s done for publishing. Her endorsement of the candidate Obama may not be as successful as it was for the author Obama.

Beware Murdoch’s ‘Necessary Promises’

While Rupert Murdoch is as conscious of his image as any other legendary villain, he also seems to possess a sense of humor—or at least somebody around him does.

Watergate Without the Break-In

It is time to stop referring to the “fired U.S attorneys scandal” by that misnomer, and call it what it is: a White House-coordinated effort to use the vast powers of the Justice Department to swing elections to Republicans.

Iran Calls Bush’s Bluff

Relations between the U.S. and Iran are shifting as U.N. inspectors discover that Iran’s uranium enrichment program appears to be further along than previously believed.  These new developments only underscore the increasing volatility in the very region the American invasion of Iraq was supposed to secure, and they put the Bush administration in a codependent relationship with Iran’s ruling regime.

What Price Slaughter?

In New York and Jalalabad, human life is valued differently by the U.S. government.  A loved one lost in the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attack was worth about $1.8 million, according to the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund.  The life of a 16-year-old Afghan girl is set, by tragic contrast, at $2,000.

Obama Cools on Affirmative Action

Barack Obama doesn’t think anyone should cut his two daughters any slack when they apply to college—not because of their race, at least. In the unlikely event that the Obama family goes broke, then maybe.

The Anti-War Origins of Mother’s Day

In 1870, Julia Ward Howe responded to the horrors of the Civil War by issuing her “Mother’s Day Proclamation,” calling on women around the world to rise up and oppose war in all its forms. It would be decades before Americans officially began celebrating Mother’s Day, and much of the original spirit of the proclamation has since been lost.
