    Monday Jul 3 | Townhall

    Given my other Dozen interviews, it's no secret that I'm a fan of the misfits . I'm drawn to people like Andy Levy, Nick Gillespie, Ann Coulter, Greg Gutfeld, Thaddeus McCotter, Michael Malice, Terry Schappert, and Gavin McInnes, who don't fit neatly in a political box and inspire me to think deeper or troll harder.

  8. Disgrace and Irony at Bethune-CookmanRead the original story w/Photo

    May 16, 2017 | Townhall

    Watching U.S. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos stand at the podium during Bethune-Cookman University's commencement ceremony last week, struggling to deliver her remarks over the noise of boos and hisses emanating from its graduating class was a sad, but all-too-familiar commentary on the state of higher education in 21st Century America. The unwillingness of educated adults to respectfully listen to a speaker without demonstrating like spoiled children reflects the cultural shift occurring on college campuses across the nation; one in which shouting down an invited speaker, even a member of the president's Cabinet, is now viewed as an acceptable - if not noble - means of political protest.

    In December 1964, a Silver Age of American liberalism, to rival the Golden Age of FDR and the New Deal, seemed to be upon us.

    Well, she did not show up. I am talking about Ann Coulter, the svelte conservative firebrand who was invited to speak at the University of California, Berkeley, and, inadvertently, to show the assembled coeds how a stylish blond dresses.

    Apr 28, 2017 | Townhall

    I once called her "The Incredible Shrinking Ann Coulter" because of her vicious - and sometimes vulgar - attacks on long-term Presidential favorite Ted Cruz. She was right about Trump, though I still give Senator Cruz mad props for fighting the good fight.
