While few people enjoy piling on Ted Cruz as much as I do, I have to admit that Cruz’s trip to Mexico during the Texas energy crisis is, as he said himself, a distraction from the real problem — which is that Texas, of all places, ran out of gas, or at least its ability to deliver gas.

For all of Rep. Lauren Boebert’s attention-grabbing antics in her first days in Congress, it looks as if she is still having to play catch-up if her ambition is to be the leading U.S. House crazy. It must be driving her nuts.

Now that all the beautiful speeches about unifying a country in disunion are over and done, we should note that the clock on President Joe Biden’s honeymoon period is already ticking. In fact, that sound you hear might be the alarm going off.

If you’re wondering why the Senate must hold an impeachment trial of Donald Trump even after he’s no longer president, even if it’s unlikely that the required 17 or so Republicans will ever vote to convict, even if the trial would impede Joe Biden’s first days in office, you don’t have to lo…

With one week left before the end of our long national nightmare, when Donald Trump will finally be evicted from the White House, the questions now should be not only about Trump’s fate but also about the fate of Trumpism.

It’s no secret that the Colorado GOP has major problems. But now one problem — let’s call it the Patrick Neville problem — has reached a critical stage.

There are two stories competing for the day’s headlines, day after day, and both come back to the same person, who remains, even in his final days in the Oval Office, at the center of everything.

I can’t decide — and I don’t think I’m alone here — how seriously to take Donald Trump’s attempted coup, in which he’ll try virtually anything to overturn the plainly clear results of the 2020 presidential election.

I get mildly annoyed when I hear Colorado politicians — yes, I mean you, John Hickenlooper — say that if we could only bring Colorado to Washington that everything would be better. There would be mountains, I guess, which would be nice. But politics in state houses, with some notable excepti…

Our question for today is what will become of Colorado’s Republican Party if Cory Gardner, as many expect, loses his Senate seat to John Hickenlooper? I mean, besides, in what should be the first order of business, kicking Ken Buck out as party chair.

Once Donald Trump, who famously said he likes to downplay COVID-related issues, agreed to check into Walter Reed, Trump’s health crisis became all too real. It may be a while yet before we know how real. Truth, after all, is predictably the first casualty of a presidential health crisis. And…

Donald Trump has named his 11th-hour nominee for the Supreme Court in what will be Part II of the Great Court Heist of 2020. And when it’s all over — whatever happens to Trump in November and beyond — we’ll have a court prepared to overturn Roe v. Wade, a court prepared to diminish voting ri…

We should not be talking about politics today. We should be honoring and mourning the life and death of the Notorious RBG, who was far more than a late-career cultural icon. She was a giant of the court. Even before joining the Supreme Court, she was the diminutive giant whose outsized role …

The unanswered question from Bob Woodward’s blockbuster book on the Trump presidency, helped along by 18 interviews with Trump himself, is why Trump lied about the dangers of the coronavirus. That lie — actually a long series of lies — led to a lack of preparation, led to a lack of mobilizat…

It is widely assumed that Cory Gardner is an underdog in his U.S. Senate race against John Hickenlooper — a race that many national pundits, out of habit I think, are still calling a tossup. But it’s no secret why Gardner is trailing.

The easy take — which, strangely, is often the right take — on Lauren Boebert’s stunning upset of Rep. Scott Tipton in the Republican 3rd Congressional District primary is that the Colorado GOP, already on life support, is now trying to commit suicide.
