E vents have devised this sorry legacy: Bill Clinton will be recalled, with mocking irony, as the president who introduced the legal wink of “Don’t ask, don’t tell” to public policy. It seemed a clever ploy back in 1993, when the new president was dodging intense political cross fire over gays in the military. Gays will not be allowed to serve in the military, Clinton decided. But — – wink! —– we’ll look the other way. When the president attempts to cover his own behavior with an equivalent version of hypocrisy before the law, it injures all of us and creates a swamp of impossible dilemmas for the nation. Shall we give him an official pass to perjure himself on questions about his sex life? Or is Congress about to impeach a president for mere sexual infidelity? Have our public values been reduced to the contentious word games of criminal-defense lawyers? Or is America conducting a moralistic plebiscite —– thumbs up, thumbs down in the overnight polling? The dispiriting … [Read more...] about Clinton and Character
Mother criticizes my appearance
For a while, former President Trump and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis have been tip-toeing around each other, offering public praise while jockeying for GOP voters’ affection ahead of an eventual presidential primary. It made sense, as the two broadly share the MAGA mission and look to the same voters for support. But the niceties were always going to end the minute Ron and Don became political rivals in earnest. This past week appears to been the tipping point, as the two traded barbs, some more veiled than others. Folks, the pre-pre-pre-presidential primary season is over and the pre-pre-presidential primary season is upon us. Trump, Axios reports, has been mocking DeSantis in private conversations, telling people that the governor has a “dull personality” and is not a serious contender for the 2024 Republican nomination. Those “private” conversations have now, either strategically or as part of the general Trumpworld chaos, leaked to the press . Axios quotes a recent Trump … [Read more...] about Florida Guys: Trump and DeSantis Are Done Playing Nice

F ROM JONESBORO, ARKANSAS, TO SPRINGFIELD, OREGON, the serial carnage in American schoolyards has generated the predictable outrage aimed at rap music and devil teenagers. Why are kids shooting each other, their parents and teachers? Americans always enjoy a lusty discussion of what’s wrong with the younger generation. Plus, it lets everyone avoid the politically explosive question of what’s wrong with the guns. While talk shows and right-wing preachers obsess about the moral depravity of youth culture, the usual political adversaries are lining up for yet another long-running congressional struggle over various gun-control measures. The National Rifle Association knows that people are upset by the spectacle of gun-toting students and hopes to soften its image with Charlton Heston as its new president. Meanwhile, Handgun Control Inc., the leading advocacy group of reformers, unveils a new grab bag of modest legislative ideas for reducing the bloodshed, such as mandatory trigger … [Read more...] about Will the Smart Gun Save Lives?
