Reality Check: Readers’ Responses

I am so disappointed. I was rooting so hard for Bernie Sanders to be competitive before New Jersey voted, but he is getting slaughtered and there is no way he can win this. Reading this column is very depressing, and sadly, true (MADAM SHOO-IN—THE SEQUEL—Issue: 3/23/16). This is why I …

I do not want to write this shit.

Not now. Not ever.

This is personal.

But it’s either this or continue sitting around enduring this sick feeling of inertia on the edge of a loathsome face-off with mortality.

So…whew…here goes…

Reality Check: The Great Republican Lie On Abortion

This week Republican presidential frontrunner, Donald Trump, in his usual wing-it fashion, told an MSNBC audience that if abortion was illegal then the woman getting the abortion is committing a crime and therefore should stand trial for said crime.

Reality Check: Madam Shoo-In – The Sequel

The Clinton Machine Revs Up                   

Can you hear it?

Vrooooooooooom. Vrooooooooom.

It is an old model, early 1990s to be exact, and though it was idling a tad shaky this past summer—not surprisingly, it hadn’t been cranked up since 2008—it is starting to hum. The pistons were rusty and …
