Barack Obama put the cat among the pigeons Thursday night, but he may be surprised by how big that cat could get, and with it a big cat’s appetite for more than pigeons.
At a time when many Republicans have embraced a “don’t ask, don’t tell” approach to same-sex marriage (“Don’t ask me what my position is because I won’t tell you”), Republican Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas has proposed a characteristically audacious solution to judicial assaults on traditional marriage: a constitutional amendment.
Our nation is in the final stages of a sweeping and historic social transformation that just 10 years ago seemed improbable at best.

Republicans have no shortage of ideas for fixing America’s immigration system and no lack of good will toward those who would come here for opportunity and freedom.

If Aesop were here he might rewrite his famous fable, replacing the boy who cried “wolf!” with the girl who cried “rape!” The cry of “rape” is used so carelessly that it’s often impossible to get to the truth of an accusation.

It was underreported, since the rapist usually took advantage of those who felt too vulnerable even to say anything about it.
The takedown of Bill Cosby, from an attack of a comedian to allegations of sexual assault by a string of women, vividly illustrates the toxic mix of social media and irresponsible journalism.
