Editor’s Notebook: Youngkin falls in with the wrong crowd

For some reason I have found myself on a PR firm’s distribution list for press materials vis-a-vis the upcoming Texas Tribune Festival, which based on the lineup is going to be rolling out some of the most preening, self-satisfied...

Editor’s Notebook: Enough with the geriatrics already

Bad news for Joe Biden in that devastating New York Times poll on his performance (talk about being whacked by friendly fire): An almost infinitesimal number of those under age 30 want our current president to run again. And on...

Polls are like you-know-whats: Everybody's got one and they frequently stink. So don't put much stock in THIS POLL that got some attention this week, asking respondents whom they would like to see as the Democratic nominee for president...

Editor’s Notebook: The Republican Democrats need to fear the most

Anybody who’s paying attention knows Joe Biden won’t be running for re-election. Heck, even Joe Biden, on the days he’s more compos mentis than others, probably has figured it out. One and done. Regardless, the White House sure does love...
