Deep breaths, everyone. All will be well.

It stood to reason that 2016 has a few more surprises up its very large sleeves, and that The Ohio State University’s double-overtime 30-27 win over Michigan’s Wolverines would be among them. Not that the Bucks’ winning The Game is a jolt. Ohio State has won 12 of the schools’ last 13 meetings. But there had never been an overtime in the history of The Game. Now that there has been, it is only fitting and proper that the Bucks own a perfect record on that score. A past intern on my radio show, Tony Black, now a 1L at my alma mater Michigan Law, took to Twitter to tweet...

The ‘Constitution Spring’

Email Email Print
Long-time residents of California know what the aftermath of a major quake is like. Even those completely uninjured and complete strangers to personal or property loss are jittery for weeks or even months. They hate to be stuck under overpasses. They loathe being in Los Angeles’ very tall buildings when the inevitable aftershocks roll through. It’s very, very disconcerting, even for the untouched. It’s terribly hard for those wounded or who lose loved ones. Eventually, however, nearly everyone picks up, cleans up, shows up and carries on. So it is with political earthquakes...

The choice

Email Email Print
Former Missouri Senator Jim Talent made a comprehensive five part closing argument for Donald Trump for president here. Larry Arnn, the president of Hillsdale College — speaking for himself and not his community of teachers, students and staff at Hillsdale — made an argument about both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump which ought to be read or listened to in its entirety but which can be summarized fairly by stating that Trump must be the choice for those people concerned that the growth of government threatens every aspect of human liberty and especially the Framers’ design. A few...

Francona’s example for GOP: Stick with what has worked in the past

Email Email Print
If 2016 trends stay true, the “Sweet Meteor of Death” (#SMOD on Twitter) will hit the earth — specifically, at Progressive Field in Cleveland — in the bottom of the ninth inning of Game 7 with the score tied and the Cleveland Indians’ Mike Napoli at bat. The Cubs’ Jon Lester will have dueled with the Tribe’s Corey Kluber through 6 scoreless innings, with Bryan Shaw, Andrew Miller and Cody Allen holding the Chicago line-up scoreless in their turns in relief of Cluber. And Arlodis Chapman will be looking long and hard at Napoli, the almost certain World Series...

The GOP’s crisis

Email Email Print
Political parties have been around since politics emerged from the stranglehold of the strongest and extended out to even the most limited of franchises. “Parties” existed even within the courts of absolute kings. “Factions” are how Alexander Hamilton, James Madison and John Jay referred to them in “The Federalist Papers,” and they appeared on American soil in something like their modern form almost as soon as the Constitution in which they went unremarked upon was ratified and Hamilton and Madison, the two greatest contributors to the framing, went their...

Hillary’s contempt for Bernie’s folk

Email Email Print
Basement-dwelling baristas of the world unite! You have nothing to lose but your “I’m With Her” signs. “Bernie Sanders is the real deal,” you thought, but Clinton just thought you hopelessly naive, underemployed at best with few prospects, and oppressed by Obamacare premiums that no one expected to have to pay. You, said Clinton, wanted free stuff. You, said Clinton — in so many, many words — are not so bright. Thus in the release of another fundraiser tape did Clinton’s and elite media’s forced march through beauty pageants past get derailed. The...
