Intolerant of gay rights and tolerant of gun violence

And I don't believe any death becomes less painful by making it a teachable moment. But I do believe in action. If you want to do something, ask those running for office where they stand and what they believe, but more importantly what they will do.

Scott and Bondi need to recant their endorsements of Trump

Mar 31, 2016

By Dan

And it is no defense to claim an endorsement of Trump is not a validation of everything he says or does. This is no longer about policy positions or a single aberrant act. It is about who Trump is - a sexist and a bigot who is categorically unqualified to be President.

Why Hillary.

While the Presidency is a bully pulpit, it is not only a bully pulpit. It is so much more. While I believe both candidates share similar goals, I am casting my vote with Hillary Clinton because more than her opponent, she can advance them.

Blame yourselves.

When preserving power by any means becomes the singular goal of your party, virtue is bound to be replaced with bombast, and thoughtful policies supplanted by callow rhetoric. And don't get me wrong, Trump will be formidable because appealing to the worst instincts in people can sometimes be effective. But at least this election will present clear choices.

Florida Presidential Primary Karma May Strike Again

Feb 2, 2016

By Dan

But early last year, with Florida's then favorite son Jeb Bush certain to run, the legislature moved the primary back in order to allow it to be a winner-take-all affair. The plan was that Jeb would easily win, almost assuring that Florida's massive delegate haul would overwhelm Jeb's opponents...Oops.

Do you really want be a member of a club that has Trump as its frontrunner?

Since Richard Nixon's maligned "Southern strategy" (the GOP's calculated decision to embrace disenchanted segregationists in order to carry the South on Election Day) the Republican Party has tried to keep its right wing, angry cousin in the family without giving them an invite to the wedding. So nearly, ritualistically, each primary season presidential wannabes pay lip-service to the right with a generous helping of red meat, then run to the center for some healthier fare.

This season, however, that nasty cousin's not just at the wedding, he's giving the toast. And it's a very, very ugly toast.
