Dowd’s latest columns bash both mother and daughter.  First Dowd trashes Chelsea Clinton for the $75,000 fee she earns making speeches, although...

Supreme Court’s Hobby Lobby Decision May Be a Disaster for Republicans

Last week’s firestorm set off by the Supreme Court’s Hobby Lobby decision has brought into sharp focus the problem Republicans have in their outreach to women.  Rather than Utah Senator Mike Lee et al taking a victory lap over Hobby Lobby’s exemption from covering 4 types of contraception that it (wrongly) classifies as abortifacients in its health care plan, what should trouble Conservatives is the...

“Hillary is the Meryl Streep of Politics”: Anita Finlay on Newsmax TV

On her book tour for Hard Choices, Hillary Clinton has been getting a fair amount of lambasting from a pundit class that looks to be lying in wait in the tall grass.  As usual, Secretary Clinton is graded  by a different metric than other potential candidates, or private citizens (she is one right now) would receive. How good would ever be good enough in her case? I answer those...

In response to my latest piece, The Sexy New Center in Politics, Millenials and the Oncoming Populist Wave, Jerry and I unpack the bad rap independent voters have gotten, the growing populist clout and surprising makeup of 51% of our population.

The Sexy New Center in Politics, Millenials and the Oncoming Populist Wave

Two days before the 2012 Presidential election, EPIC TIMES founder Jerry Doyle and I had our first conversation on his top 5 syndicated radio show.  Who knows if he was even in the mood to talk to me?  Yet we found common ground as neither of us had much use for Party labels or tolerance for the Kabuki Theatre that comprises much of politics today. ...

Anita Finlay & Jerry Doyle Debate Hillary, Leadership and Media Manipulation 6/10/2014

On June 1oth, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton launched her book, “Hard Choices.”  Her blitz interview tour, starting with ABC’s Diane Sawyer, was cause for Jerry to grill me on her every talking point: the “dead broke” gaffe, her IWR vote from 2002 (yes, it is still an issue to some), and much more.  Jerry and I debate the value of experience vs. the...

Ramifications of #YesAllWomen/#NotAllMen in the Wake of Elliot Rodger’s Killing Spree

Struggling to make sense of Elliot Rodger’s rampage at UC Santa Barbara last Friday, murdering six men and women and wounding thirteen others before killing himself, whether we blame mental illness or lax gun law enforcement, the roots of his rage were his misogynist hatred of and sense of sexual entitlement to the women he objectified, as illuminated by his chilling 137-page manifesto. Per Amanda...

Was The New York Times’ Jill Abramson Fired for Being Bossy While Female?

  Shock waves reverberated through the publishing world as Jill Abramson, the first ever female Executive Editor of The New York Times was abruptly sacked by Publisher/Chairman Arthur Sulzberger, Jr. on Wednesday. Abramson allegedly had an “abrasive style” that contributed to her firing.  Color me skeptical.  If you want to find a reason to undercut a woman, call her “bossy,” “abrasive” or “pushy.”  But being...
