  • Two Sides

    I hate to pitch politics as just one side vs. the other because it ignores the fact that we’re all Americans (shout out to the guy in the MAGA hat that waved and cheered me on my morning run) and are lucky that we even have the luxury to debate issues and participate in a […]

  • Impeachment Bon Mots

    Ambassador Taylor had to reach for his water before dropping this one. Following that meeting, in the presence of my staff at a restaurant, Ambassador Sondland called President Trump and told him of his meetings in Kyiv. The member of my staff could hear President Trump on the phone, asking Ambassador Sondland about “the investigations.” […]

  • Headline Spectrum

    So interesting when you lay the headlines along a spectrum. You can pick up quick a bit from just a headline.

  • Lady Gaga on Dr. Ford’s Courage

    I am a sexual assault survivor. Trump the other day was speaking at a rally, and he said, ‘She has no memory of how she got to the party. Should we trust that she remembers the assault?’ And the answer is ‘yes’ … And I also know this woman is smart because she’s a psychologist […]

    Ford-Kavanaugh and Truth

    The nation watches and the world waits to see if our institutions will survive this test.

  • Questions about Kavanaugh

    Two things nagging at me as we await what is gearing up to be the showdown of the decade. There’s no about-ness about this. Someone is not telling the truth. It’ll be winner takes all. Brett Kavanaugh has categorically denied being at the party where  Christine Blasey Ford alleges that she was pinned down and […]
