'Moynihan': A Brilliant Portrait of a Political Rarity (Fri, 19 Oct 2018)
For 15 years, I produced a weekly PBS series called “Think Tank,” hosted by Ben Wattenberg. Our slogan was “No journalists, no politicians, no food fights,” which was enough to set the program apart from most of what passed for policy discussion on television at the time, and delivered us a small but attentive audience who supported our effort to improve the public discourse. In all those years, we did have a number of journalists on the program – Ben felt that if a journo had written a book, he or she was worthy of an invitation. But we never allowed a single...

Pro-Life Meme; Selecting Senators; Nationalism's Virtues; the Agnew Factor (Fri, 19 Oct 2018)
Good morning. It’s Friday, October 19, 2018 -- the anniversary of an infamous date in political name-calling -- and one that all civic-minded Americans should bear in mind. (Yes, Donald Trump, this means you. And many Trump critics, it means you too.) Long before a U.S. president went around mocking his critics by assigning them insulting nicknames or shouting “Fake News!” at media coverage he dislikes -- and long before that self-same press corps routinely disparaged the president as an insane racist -- a vice president of the United States went around the country casually...

Hawley Paints McCaskill as 'Party-Line Liberal' in Missouri Debate (Fri, 19 Oct 2018)
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — Missouri Republican candidate Josh Hawley used a Thursday debate to try to paint Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill as too liberal for the increasingly red state of Missouri, while McCaskill continued to hammer her challenger over his positions on health care. The candidates’ messaging during the St. Louis debate hosted by St. Louis Public Radio, Nine Network and KSDK Channel 5 reflects broader themes in their campaigns in the final weeks before the Nov. 6 election. Hawley so far has tied himself to President Donald Trump, who won Missouri by nearly 19...

If Trump Never Fails to Infuriate, Clinton Consistently Disappoints (Fri, 19 Oct 2018)
WASHINGTON -- Between the man who is president and the woman who ran against him, there is, for me, no contest; Hillary Clinton would have been a far better president than Donald Trump. But both Trump and Clinton, in their own trademark ways, stepped in it again this week when it comes to women. Trump's comments -- describing Stormy Daniels as "Horseface" -- are the more offensive if for no other reason than that he is the president, and presidential words carry extra weight. Yet Clinton's comments -- insisting that her husband's affair with Monica Lewinsky did not constitute an abuse of...

Schumer: Dems Are Running 'Neck and Neck' for Senate Majority (Fri, 19 Oct 2018)
Friday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said Democrats were running “neck and neck” to win the majority in the Senate in the midterms. Schumer said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s (R-KY) recent comments on health care and social programs are a “game changer.” When asked what the Democrats message is, Schumer said, “Very simple. First and foremost, better health care at lower cost. it’s the number one issue in America.” He continued, “Let me just say this. Mitch McConnell gave us a gift in the last three days. He showed who the Republican Party really is. Day one, cut Medicare, Medicaid, social security, day, two remove 30 million people from health care, day three, join a lawsuit that gets rid of pre-existing conditions. Health care, you know my mother used to tell me when someone shows you who they are, believe them. That’s a game changer. what McConnell did in the last three days is a game changer for us.” He added, “This election is neck and neck. And as I said, McConnell gave us a gift. That’s a game changer when he shows who he is and wants to really hurt people on health care.” Follow

Limbaugh Warns Trump on Khashoggi, Endangering Saudi Reforms -- Says Dems Are 'Lying in Wait' (Fri, 19 Oct 2018)
Thursday on Fox News Channel’s “Hannity,” conservative talker Rush Limbaugh emphasized the importance of the Trump administration getting the proper response to the Saudi Arabian government for the alleged murder of Jamal Khashoggi at a Turkish consulate given the Saudi royal family’s influence over Islam. Limbaugh said explained if President Donald Trump went too far placating the Saudis, it might appear it was done so for financial reasons, and that would give Democrats an opportunity to attack him. Partial transcript as follows: HANNITY: Let me ask you about this Khashoggi. You saw Tom Friedman today. LIMBAUGH: Yes. Well, he made, Friedman made a good point about this. HANNITY: Yes. LIMBAUGH: And I got to acknowledge good points when they are made. I think this is a precarious time for the Trump administration because the left is trying to use this Khashoggi death, tie it to Trump. They are trying to get Trump to blame for everything. HANNITY: If he cured cancer, Rush, they would still be mad at him. LIMBAUGH: For destroying the livelihood of how many people in the medical field. HANNITY: They would find a reason. LIMBAUGH: The thing about Mohammed bin Salman, the thing he was doing that
