Our most important reaction should be rationally taking steps that will stop these kinds of attacks in the short term, and better security in our schools should be the first step.

The chatter on both sides of the political aisle is as if Republicans haven't won an election in decades and likely won't ever again.

That it took until 5 p.m. Friday to cancel the marathon is an insult.

Don't expect more Republican women to step up to national politics when the ones who do are perennial punching bags for the media.

The Chick-fil-a controversy was awkward for me at first because of the two reasons above: I'm a conservative, yes, but I don't like the food and, oh yeah, I'm fine with gay people marrying.

We've had the serious debate about gun control. The Second Amendment won.

Barack Obama was taking the world's most obvious shot at Mitt Romney for being successful and when it blew up in his face it became a case of being misquote or words taken out of context.

Who still cares that the U.S. government sold guns to Mexican gangs? I care.

The economy isn't doing well and our president has shown deep enough concern for this fact that he... held a press conference and talked about it a lot.

Some of the biggest changes in the 2010 election were that Obama voters were having second thoughts about the party of the man they elected just two years prior. Did they suddenly become racists?

I've gotten a lot of criticism from liberals for my position over the years, yet they're all cheering Obama for adopting the exact same stance today.

It used to be that liberalism pushed for an equality between the sexes. Now, any motion to treat women as equal to men is used as political ammo.

Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich seem ready to campaign well into 2013 since this is, by far, the most prominence either has achieved in at least the last decade.

Give us a little something, Mitt. We promise not to try to be your friend.

I loved that he could take responsibility when he did something wrong. I think he just wanted the same from his targets.

At the risk of sounding like every hipster in history: CPAC used to be so much cooler. Man.

Gisele's sense of entitlement, her willingness to throw blame around, her inability to see her man's flaw, yes, I had definitely heard it before: from president Obama and his fans.

If there's one thing we know about President Obama, it's that this is not a man to take risks with his political life. He's been "evolving" on gay marriage for years now but there's no way he'll fully become man before the election.

With the idea that they're the same politically, people are choosing based on personality. And yes, let's insert the obvious joke here that it's hard to do that with Mitt Romney since he doesn't have one. Yet, for the second presidential election in a row, I'll be voting Mitt Romney to try to stop the other guys from winning.

In 2008 I had made the far-out prediction that John McCain would win the primary. Everyone said I was nuts, and when I was right I reveled in the accolades of my friends calling me a genius. Still intoxicated from being so right, I figured I'd try a longshot prediction again and I was wrong. Mea culpa.
