    He brags often and loudly about being a son of Pennsylvania. But Joe Biden’s Scranton yarns didn’t protect him from a typical Philly welcome. A Washington Post sports writer notes that Phillies fans booed Biden during Sunday’s baseball game. And a reader e-mailed me last night: My son (26, a good Republican) was at the Philadelphia Phillies play off game last night, 10/16/2010, in Philadelphia. He told me the following: Joe Biden was there and when his image appeared on the screen, a smattering of clapping started but it was then replaced with booing that proceeded to get louder and...

    Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., is considered a front-runner for the 2008 race, but does McCain have the temperament to be president? But to insiders who know him, McCain has an irrational, explosive side that make many of them question whether he is fit to serve as president and be commander in chief. Nowhere is that sentiment stronger than in the Senate, where McCain has few friends or supporters. In fact, when McCain ran for the Republican nomination for president in 2000, only four Republican senators endorsed him. "I have witnessed incidents where he has used profanity at colleagues and exploded...

    In Jordan's King Abdullah, Washington saw the kinder, gentler face of the Arab world. Arriving last month to accept an honorary doctorate from Georgetown University, the 43-year-old monarch told American reporters he supports democracy movements spreading from Iraq to Lebanon. His visit to Washington came just as Arab leaders gathered in Algiers without him. The king skipped a regional summit of the Arab League, even though the most talked-about item on the agenda was a Jordanian peace proposal that for the first time dropped Arab demands that Israel cede all lands it acquired in the 1967 war. Rather than tussle...

    Last week, Cliff Kincaid, Editor of the Accuracy In Media Report[1], wrote that at least two in Congress have considered a Rathergate hearing. Actually, the way I heard it was that Rep. Chris Cox requested that House Commerce Committee Chairman Joe Barton (R-TX) schedule a hearing but Barton was not overly enthused with the idea. Rep. Barton is quoted as saying, "A news organization's responsibility is to facts and truth, but the oversight of network news generally is a matter best sorted out by the viewing public and the news media." I wholeheartedly agree. There is a simple reason most...

    <p>Gray Davis was a centrist triangulator during the first three years of his governorship, interposing himself as the decisive factor between business and professional groups and an increasingly liberal Legislature.</p> <p>Davis collected millions of dollars in campaign funds from business executives and tilted their way on issues large and small, from modifying environmental regulations issued by state agencies to vetoing expensive worker benefit bills backed by labor unions and granting corporate tax breaks.</p>
