Rick Santorum Dodges an Issue?

HOLLIS, N.H. Last night was probably the toughest night for me since I’ve been on the campaign trail. Why?

‘Just Win, Baby’

“There was a time, about ten years ago, when I could write like Grantland Rice.

Thompson, Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail ’72 When I […]

When It Rains, It Pours

Herman Cain Set to Win S.C. Debate – headline, Wednesday, May 4 Things keep happening that nobody but me predicted, and predictions that were ignored when I made them are forgotten when they come true.

LT: Hall of Fame Sex Offender

  When this story first caught my attention last spring, I wrote: Wait a minute.

The First-Ever Dan Collins Chubby Chaser Pre-Super Bowl Overnight Open Thread

Obama Supports Dog-Killer Vick, Jinxes Philadelphia Eagles vs. Minnesota Vikings

Exactly why the president of the United States felt the need to phone the Eagles’ coach to praise him for giving Michael Vick a second chance, I don’t know. What I do know is that it didn’t help the Eagles: The NFL’s first Tuesday game in 64 years produced a fittingly unusual result as Minnesota […]
