The mysteries of Donald Trump's endorsement — The mystery of Donald Trump's endorsement of Mitt Romney is as large and complicated as his hair. First, there is the question of why Trump chose to endorse Romney at all. Up until now, he has shown his bafflingly marketable disdain for the fellow one-percenter.

Ted Cruz Is More of a Spider-Man Guy — Your new book is called ''A Time for Truth: Reigniting the Promise of America.'' A few months ago you were in the news for warning a little girl that ''the world is on fire.'' Do you believe setting things on fire is good or bad? Both.

The Gross-Out Politics of Abortion — The primary driver behind the views of and discussion about the Center for Medical Progress's Planned Parenthood "sting" video is disgust, something akin to the morbid fascination that drives people to Jackass's violent antics or clinical acne extractions.

Bernie Sanders Is The Left's Trump — Bernie Sanders is the Left's Donald Trump. Bear with me here. There is a lot they don't have in common, including where they stand in their respective party's polls-though Sanders' slow creep into a distant second is likely to be more sustainable.

Dinesh D’Souza Isn’t the Real Criminal — After your conviction for violating campaign-finance law, you served an eight-month sentence, spending nights in a confinement center. Irving Kristol once said that a neoconservative is a liberal who has been ''mugged by reality.'' So what's a conservative whose reality is being surrounded by muggers?

Let Bristol Palin Have a Sex Life — Who will bake Bristol Palin's wedding cake? I'm only half-joking. With her second out-of-wedlock child on the way, the one-time " abstinence ambassador" has shown a disregard for "traditional marriage" that should offend any number of devout patisserie owners and pizzeria proprietors.

Why the GOP Hates Talking About Hate: Conservatives Don’t Want to Confront Racism in Charleston Shooting — In the 24 hours after the massacre inside Charleston's Emanuel A.M.E. Church, GOP politicians and members of the conservative commentariat have tried to explain Dylann Storm Roof 's motivations on a spectrum that runs from merely murky to the explicitly anti-religious.

The GOP’s Awkward Courting of Caitlyn Jenner — What if you threw a culture war and nobody came? That may be how it feels to the few conservatives who have chosen to attack Caitlyn Jenner, who surprised many people less by announcing she was transgender than by pledging allegiance to the Republican Party.

Sarah Palin’s Bitter Cry For Attention — By now you may have read Sarah Palin's florid attack on Lena Dunham. She and her daughter Bristol both attempted the same pathetic slight-of-hand to distract from the ongoing grotesquerie of the Duggar family values. Go take a look, if you have time and can get past the all caps intro.
