Clowns to the left of me...

I have a confession to make, but these days, I'm not alone.

I need to do my research

I am confused! There are only about eight or nine weeks left until the Presidential election. Where has the time gone?

It works, sort of...

Dave Barry, one of my literary heroes and the guy who is making all the money I should have made if I were only a few years earlier and a lot funnier, once wrote a great piece called "Snuggle Bear Must Die." Basically, it was a hilarious screed about the commercials we all loved to hate back in the late '80s/early 90s and it is a subject I believe certainly bears some revisitation – especially because I find myself near deadline with no clear idea for this column and one "Get Out Of Jail Free" card already spent.

The GOP's Trumpian deflation

WASHINGTON -- Donald Trump. Would that it were unnecessary to mention his name except, say, as a Viagra pitchman.

Hillary's heel

WASHINGTON -- When I wrote the headline "Hillary's heel," I was thinking of Achilles, not Bill, though the former president is usually within nipping range of his wife's pantsuit hem.

I'm a BIG KID

I am pretty sure you all have realized that I am a "young 'un". But I have a confession: underneath these 173 pounds of cuteness and an afro, I'm a big kid. I am telling you folks the truth. I still watch cartoons; I had the desire on Monday to go outside and play; and I still indulge in milk and cookies.

Because I'm passionate about it...

I'm trying recall the last time I actually took the time to dispense a load of good advice to people I barely know. It's been awhile, but maybe it's time to get back into the game.

A nice column about Trump

WASHINGTON -- When my syndicate editor told me a few clients had been asking, Don't you have anyone over there who can write something positive about Donald Trump, I thought, well, that could be fun.

The Olympics opened my eyes

I have been without a television set for a few days, but I know that the Olympics are the thing right now. I watched the opening ceremony with my parents, and I have watched a few events make history. I am learning something from the Olympics, though. Whenever I used to think of Brazil, I thought of tanned babes with great hair in bikinis. In the past, I saw Brazil in music videos and magazines, and everybody looked happy. The Olympics and Spanish class taught me different. I remember in Spanish class my professor used to talk about the racial ...

Aggravation lurks in the remote…

Yet another thing I've noticed about my galloping downhill ride into curmudgeon-hood is my intense and ever growing dislike of television. More specifically, I am annoyed – nay, I am disturbed and offended – by most everything I see these days, from a plethora of utterly mindless content to the outrageous cost of having 265 channels of said utterly mindless content piped into my house via cable, satellite or internet.

Driven to distraction

OXFORD, Md. -- Reflexively, I type "Dru" and The Drudge Report pops up. I hate myself for going there but as a columnist ever in search of the zeitgeist's ultimate wave, I am behooved.

Hurrah for John Oliver

WASHINGTON -- Every couple of years or so, I feel the need to whine about the plight of newspapers. It's August. I'm Trumped out. So today's the day.

My boyfriend and I are moving together

I want you to re-read that sentence. I know I am in the Bible Belt, and folks probably read that as "My Boyfriend and I are Moving in Together." That is not the case. I am actually referring to the fact that my boyfriend and I are checking off our goals simultaneously. My boyfriend and I are moving at the pace we wanted.

Trump's head case

WASHINGTON -- Two years ago, Karl Rove caused a stir when he planted a seed that Hillary Clinton might have suffered brain damage from a fall.
