Depending on which side they are — Democrats or Republicans — Sarah Palin has the right to express her views about her extraordinary experience during the presidential election.

The fly that has no one to advise it follows the corpse into the grave.

President Obama is considering four options for realigning U.S. strategy in Afghanistan. The decision is a tough one.

For eight years the US Army has […]

According to his publicist, Joe the Plumber (actually Sam Wurzelbacher) will release his new book on December 1. Very soon, he will have a record deal. Joe the Plumber is the “plumber without a licence” who challenged President-Elect Barack Obama about his health care program and campaigned for John McCain… and then turned out to […]

There are many ways of coping with a loss. Some people find their way by using humor, like John McCain did to deal with his presidential defeat. Some, like Sarah Palin, seem to talk more to the press now than during the election campaign. This is a time for her to restore her “image” after […]
