I admit it: I sometimes feel like writing about Keith Richards. I’m a fan. But since there are few situations when writing about Keef isn’t a non sequitur, I mostly confine myself to brief Facebook appreciations of say, the slashing rhythm guitar on “All Down the Line,” or the delicate arpeggios on “Love in Vain.” Would that Politico’s John F. Harris had my discipline.

June 4th, 2015 10:00 AM
If his 2012 presidential run is any indicator, Rick Perry’s jump into the 2016 presidential race will bring about a flurry of the liberal media’s favorite pejoratives to hit Republicans with. Racist? Anti-science? Religious bigot? Gun nut? Heartless cutter of programs for the poor? You name it, the former Texas governor was called it by his haters in the leftist press.

Arrogant Politico Pair: 'Media Filter' Will 'Powerfully Shape' How Rom

September 1st, 2012 11:55 PM
For sheer arrogance and self-importance, it's pretty hard to top a pair of political pundits at Politico on the power they  believe media "insiders" have to tell Americans what Mitt Romney really said and meant in his nomination acceptance speech at the Republican convention Thursday night.
