President David Cop-A-Feel is dead. We are going to see a lot of liberal lament for Bush now that he is gone. Heck, we even see that for his terrible son now that Trump is president. But let’s not f

John McSame has died. Any decent obituary of John McCain has to be as much about the media fawning over him as about the man himself. This was a not a good man and yet no one was more lionized by the

I’ll save the real opprobrium for when I can travel to Georgia to visit his grave, but for now, let’s mourn Zell Miller’s death for approximately 0 seconds. Share

There aren’t a lot of historians who deserve what some might see as hyperbolic language. By and large, most of us just build on each other, slightly shift a literature, and contribute to the bro
