September 30, 2014 The United Kingdom recently voted to join the U.S. in airstrikes against the militant Islamist State—but only after British Prime Minister David Cameron called for a lengthy debate among lawmakers to discuss the issue. Hasn't Cameron learned anything from President Obama? Declaring war shouldn't have to involve prolonged deliberation. Comedian...

Play of the Day: The Problem with Drone Strikes

September 29, 2014 Unmanned aerial attacks are all the rage in the current administration's war against terrorism, and the American public is just fine with that.

Play of the Day: The Best Candidate to Replace Eric Holder

September 26, 2014 Attorney General Eric Holder tendered his resignation Thursday, but President Obama has yet to appoint a successor.

Play of the Day: The Absurd Art of the Congressional Attack Ad

September 25, 2014 The battle for control of the United States Senate continues, and challengers to incumbent lawmakers are not above slinging mud.

Play of the Day: Syria, the iPhone 6 of Wars

September 24, 2014 U.S. airstrikes against the Islamic State and other targets in Syria began late Monday night.

Play of the Day: How to Explain Climate Change So Congress Can Actually Understand

September 23, 2014 About 400,000 environmental supporters are on the move in New York City, and Colbert Report host Stephen Colbert wants to sing their praises.

September 19, 2014 While President Obama has promised not to send ground forces to fight in Iraq, the rest of America is still quibbling over the footwear question.

Play of the Day: Why America Is More Afraid of Ebola Than ISIS

September 18, 2014 The terrorist organization known as ISIS released a video responding to President Obama's strategy to "degrade and destroy" the group.

Play of the Day: The Frustrations of Hillary Clinton

September 17, 2014 Whoever attends Sen. Tom Harkin's 37th annual Iowa Steak Fry is destined to run for president. That must be why Hillary Clinton finally set foot in the state, eight years after she came in third in the Iowa caucuses. That must also be the reason media pundits are going crazy...
