I'm dumbfounded by this. Mitt Romney, who presumably cares about winning his home state of Michigan, said on a radio talk show that the Chevrolet Volt is an "idea whose time has not come." He was laughing when he said it, too. I'd be more amazed at the...

In November, I advanced one of CNN's debates with a piece hoping aloud that Wolf Blitzer would not let Newt Gingrich bully him as the the former Speaker of the House had been doing to other debate moderators.
Here's a bit of what I wrote:
And so it...

I wanted to scream after reading the editorial about Ron Smith on Friday ("The voice of reason," Nov. 25). To say The Sun's editorial board is not often in agreement with Ron in matters of politics and government is a given. Ron's ideas are reasonable and...

Rush Limbaugh condemns, criticizes and otherwise lambastes many things, as his radio listeners know. But Michelle Obama seems to have become a target for particularly personal attacks from the conservative radio talk-show host. First, he called out the...

I have to give Keith Olbermann and Current TV their due: For 58 minutes Monday night, they delivered an impressive premiere on the new "Countdown" show. Strong production values, reasonable discussions and no ugly over-the-top slanderous attacks on...

I'm speaking on behalf of every editorial cartoonist in America! Heck, in the world!
I admit I'm fascinated with the paleoconservative Newt-a-saur. The man has no shame. He's unethical and has proven himself to be disloyal and a phony. He has raised...

I just walked out of a dark room after spending two hours with the screener for "Game Change," the HBO film about the 2008 Republican presidential campaign of John McCain and Sarah Palin.
Based on a best-selling, non-fiction book about the historic race,...

I am extremely disappointed in how you reported President Obama's visit to Corona del Mar last week ("Obama visit rattles CdM," Feb. 17). I opened up the Daily Pilot the following day to see only signs supporting him on a full-front cover picture. This is...

In this installment of the Santorum Show, everyone gangs up on Rick, which is the best indication that you've finally made it. Just ask Rick Perry, Herman Cain, Newt Gingrich, etc...

The Oxford English Dictionary offered up oafdom on Twitter this week: "the state of being an oaf; loutishness, stupidity." Let me suggest that, in addition, many of us find ourselves living in Oafdom, the domain of oafishness.
