COMMENTARY

RIP, Va. Sen. John Warner. A Republican who worked across the aisle. Imagine that | Dick Polman

Democrats shouldn’t negotiate with terrorists over 1/6 panel | Dick Polman

By: - May 24, 2021

COMMENTARY

Is Chris Christie pathetic, shrewd, or just pathetically shrewd? | Dick Polman

By: - April 19, 2021

It’s a tad disturbing that 45 percent of the nation’s 41 million white evangelical Christians are vowing not to get vaccinated.

COMMENTARY

So now Republicans are trying to cancel Coke and Major League Baseball | Dick Polman

By: - April 12, 2021

Are they going to do now – agree to hike taxes on corporations, as punishment for “woke” free speech?

COMMENTARY

This time, infrastructure week is for real | Dick Polman

By: - April 5, 2021

If he can pull off a sizable chunk of the sweeping infrastructure package, that BFD could put him in the history books as JRB.

COMMENTARY

White Republicans opposing D.C. statehood are more ridiculous than ever | Dick Polman

By: - March 29, 2021

D.C. statehood is about protecting and expanding democracy, regardless of car dealerships.

Long live Obamacare. Now it’s NoMalarkeyCare | Dick Polman

By: - March 22, 2021

Not only did Obamacare survive the Mar-a-Lago loser – and 10 years of attempted Republican sabotage – but today it’s more alive than ever.
