POLITICAL COMMENTARY

  • Picking the Lock in Alabama By Michael Barone

    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.   

  • Unlike Nixon, Trump Will Not Go Quietly By Patrick J. Buchanan

    On Aug. 9, 1974, Richard Nixon bowed to the inevitability of impeachment and conviction by a Democratic Senate and resigned.

    The prospect of such an end for Donald Trump has this city drooling. Yet, comparing Russiagate and Watergate, history is not likely to repeat itself.

  • Partisan Gerrymandering and the Outlook for the 2018 U.S. House Elections By Alan I. Abramowitz

    There is a growing sense among political observers that the United States may be heading toward a wave election in 2018. Results of recent special elections, including Doug Jones’ (D) victory in the Alabama Senate race on Tuesday, along with Democratic victories in the New Jersey and Virginia gubernatorial elections and surprisingly large Democratic gains in the Virginia House of Delegates all point toward the likelihood of substantial Democratic gains in next year’s midterm elections, including a real possibility that Democrats could regain control of the U.S. House of Representatives.

    Republicans are supposed to be the party that cuts the job-killing capital gains tax, not raises it. But because of a quirk in the Senate-passed tax bill, the tax on capital gains may go up -- and for some types of long-held assets, fairly substantially.   

  • What Should We Fight For? By Patrick J. Buchanan

    "We will never accept Russia's occupation and attempted annexation of Crimea," declaimed Rex Tillerson last week in Vienna.

    "Crimea-related sanctions will remain in place until Russia returns full control of the peninsula to Ukraine."

  • Democrats’ Chickens Come Home to Roost By Charles Hurt

    Behold, Nancy Pelosi, the monster you yourself created.

    Sure, Democrats have opened another front on their illusory Republican “War on Women.” But a key constituency of Mrs. Pelosi’s political jalopy is not too happy about how the party got there.

  • Will President Trump Last Another Year? By Ted Rall

    Some political experts doubted that Donald J. Trump would tough it out this long. This, after all, was a very strange man, possibly afflicted by obsessive-compulsive disorder to the point that he even floated the idea of staying in New York.   

  • Real Target of Republican Tax Bills: Feds, Eds and Meds Bloat By Michael Barone

    Are the current Republican tax bills, passed by the House and Senate and being reconciled in conference committee, an attack on "feds, eds and meds"? That's a reference to the government, health care and education jobs that local Democrats in Dayton, Ohio, told Sen. Sherrod Brown have been fueling the area's comeback.
