Byron, it’s awfully strange for Tina to complain about Giuliani “franchising” 9/11 at the Republican convention and then watch her comparing the Flight 93 hijacker-fighters to Hillary and Mary Landrieu.

White Progressives Are Polarizing America

To understand how far left (and how quickly) the Democratic party has moved, let’s cycle back a very short 20 years. If 1998 Bill Clinton ran in the Democratic primary today, he’d be instantaneously labeled a far-right bigot. His support for the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, the Defense of Marriage Act, ...
