ALABAMA SENATE RACE: December 15, 2017 Turnout would be the key to which of the wildly conflicting polls would best presage the result of Alabama’s special Senate election, wrote Republican consultant Patrick Ruffini earlier this week. That proved correct. Statewide, turnout was down 37 percent from November 2016. It was down less, 31 percent, in the five metropolitan counties around...

REPUBLICANS: November 17, 2017 The inexorable workings of the political marketplace seem to be enforcing some discipline over hitherto fissiparous Republican politicians.

POLITICAL PARTIES: October 27, 2017 Three weeks ago, I wrote a column about how both parties seem determined to lose the next elections. Since then, the pace has accelerated. The clamor is more visible — and more assiduously reported by mainstream media — among the Republicans. George W. Bush and John McCain, who have been on or the...

TRUMP PRESIDENCY: October 20, 2017 Donald Trump is criticized, often justly, for misstatements of facts and failure to understand the details of public policy. But in two of his most recent controversial actions, he has taken stands upholding the rule of law and undoing the lawless behavior of his most recent predecessor. The question now is...
