When Joe Biden was selected by Barack Obama to be his Vice Presidential running mate I was thrilled. I thought "If Obama wins, Biden's propensity to trip over his own tongue will provide enough material to write two columns a week." I would only have to earn the third column. For the most part, darn it, Biden has behaved himself and hasn't been the loose-lipped fool he has been since he was first elected to the U.S. Senate from Delaware when he was 29 years old.Biden made up for all of that this past weekend when he proclaimed his support for gay marriage on "Meet the Press".

Now that peace has temporarily descended upon the nation’s capital and this sordid episode in the life of our Republic has come to an end, behold my review of the Movie of the Week: “High Noon at Debt Ceiling.”
There is a reason that just about every airliner looks like every other airliner. Some are larger, some smaller; some have two engines, some four, but they generally look alike.
Over the next year, as the Republican primary process plays out, there will be plenty of time for silliness, scoring political points, and mischaracterizations of each candidate’s record. But hidden amongst all the typical nonsense will also be some diamond in the rough moments.
Newt's campaign isn't dead. It is wounded, but not in a "Monty Python Black Knight" sort of way, but rather in the sort of "if it doesn't kill you it makes you stronger" way.
Four months ago the nation's voters gave John Boehner and the House GOP he leads a massive mandate to change the fiscal direction of the United States.
Today I am broadcasting from the Phoenix Convention Center and the first gathering of the Tea Party Patriots since November 2nd's sweeping GOP wins.
Yesterday, the National Broadcasting Company buried the memory of Tim Russert by turning Meet the Press into a campaign event for Barack Obama.
