Rick Santorum: Bowling Alone in the First Digital Election Santorum's conspicuous kegling was "really meant to be a cultural story, who Rick really is," his chief strategist John Brabender told the New York Times. "I think every presidential candidate wants people to get a peek into their real life so they can make a value judgment."

#january 25 One Year Later: Social Media & Politics 3.0 A year ago, a revolution began in Egypt that still reverberates there -- as well as among other repressive regimes in Syria, Bahrain, Yemen, Saudi Arabia and beyond, including thousands of miles away in New York City, where "Occupy Wall Street" protests in turn took root and then flowered into literally hundreds of similar protests all around the world.

Jose Antonio Vargas Is an American Hero Jose Antonio Vargas is incredibly brave to risk everything he has accomplished in this country in order to tell the truth-and to shine yet another but still much-needed light on the pressing need for comprehensive immigration reform in this country.

Obama Comes for the Journalists Citizens as well as journalists need to stand up for Risen and against the sleazy, Bush-like tactics of the Obamacrats and the burgeoning national security state.
