We the People, and the New American Civil War

The vitriol of the 2012 election is worse than the previous elections. Worse than the Palin-induced smarmy 2008. Worse than the swift-boat lies of 2004. Worse, even, than the anything-goes craziness of 2000 and its ensuing bitterness.

The Gilded Age vs. the 21st Century

The 2012 campaign began on Aug. 2, 2011, when President Obama signed the deal ending the debt-ceiling fiasco. At that moment, the president relinquished his last illusions that the current, radical version of the Republican Party could be dealt with as a governing partner. From then on, Obama was determined to fight—and to win.

Where Women Can Have It All

While Mitt Romney tries to make us believe socialism is evil, working mothers in France are evidence to the contrary; several stories about employers insisting their employees vote for Romney have come to light; meanwhile, activists in Guatemala are peacefully protesting mining in San José del Golfo in spite of violence against them.

Hurricane Sandy Blows Away Political Pretense and Ideological Nonsense

When the superstorm destroyed swaths of the Northeast, darkened our largest city and plunged a huge section of the nation into crisis, the anti-government ideology of the tea party Republicans—and its panderers like Mitt Romney—was exposed for what it is.
