It’s a pathetic situation in America when the queasy combination of celebrities and politics can literally result in “celebrity politicians” — carnival freakshows like Donald Trump whose name-brand recognition is enough to propel his ignorance to the top of U.S. ...

It’s looking increasingly likely that Ashley Judd is ready to make a run for the Kentucky Senate seat now held by reptilian Mitch McConnell, one the most despicable do-nothings ever to slither up Capitol Hill. Howard Fineman writes today at ...
There were cabs, carriages, shop cars, waggons, beyond counting; a mail cart
