That's the new hot attack on Sen. Marco Rubio. Ted Cruz leveled the epithet at Rubio just days before the Iowa caucuses, which is a little ironic since Cruz has been called the same thing in the past.
Hillary Clinton's asterisk-heavy victory in Iowa might have been the narrowest of wins for her, but it was arguably the worst of all possible outcomes for the Democratic Party.
The campaigns will be eager to tell you the meaning of Ted Cruz's victory and the virtual tie between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders in Iowa last night, but the larger significance of this election has been clear for months: The two major parties are paper tigers.

Jane Mayer of The New Yorker has a new book out: "Dark Money: The Hidden History of the Billionaires Behind the Rise of the Radical Right." It's mostly about those old devils the Koch brothers.

For partisan Democrats, when the word "Benghazi" comes up, the sophisticated thing to do is roll your eyes. If the name Charles Woods comes up, the normal thing to do is say, "Who?"
There has been a lot of talk -- almost all of it accurate -- about how Barack Obama's presidency has fueled the rise of Donald Trump.
In interviews and on the stump, Sen. Ted Cruz likes to attack President Obama, Hillary Clinton and "some of the more aggressive Washington neocons" for their support of regime change in the Middle East.
If you're opposed to slavery, is it OK to still like "Star Wars"?
Populism is typically born in places like Nebraska, Louisiana, Kansas and the other places given short shrift in that famous Saul Steinberg New Yorker cartoon showing the view of the world from 9th Avenue.
I don't typically endorse candidates, but as 2015 draws to a close, I feel I must make an exception.
Have you heard? The GOP is declaring war on science again.
"We have people across this country who are scared to death," New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie declared loudly at this week's Republican presidential debate in Las Vegas.
In the wake of the San Bernardino attack, liberals are in a total panic over guns. The New York Times broke a 95-year precedent to editorialize about gun control on its front page.
