Littwin: Boebert is back in the news again. Meaning it’s time for everyone to duck.

Lauren Boebert is back in the news again, which is great for columnists, cable TV news pundits and late-night comics — but not so great for America, for Colorado and especially for Colorado’s 3rd Congressional District, which she represents. Two separate  — but both entirely unsurprising — Boebert stories offer up a test for your […]

Littwin: We haven’t forgotten 9/11, but on the 20th anniversary, we can’t help but see it differently

The 20th anniversary of the tragedy of 9/11 has been different from all the others. That’s because, after so many years, the lens we’re looking through has changed so dramatically.

Littwin: The 4 cops called to testify about the Jan. 6 Capitol insurrection dramatically offer their version of the Big Truth

One of the biggest lies associated with the Big Lie — one that Joe Biden still desperately wants to believe — is that the effects of that Big Lie will eventually wear away. I guess that time may come eventually. I’m just not sure I’ll live long enough to see it. This country is damaged. […]

Littwin: Biden’s passionate speech on the GOP assault on democracy got everything right — except the solution

Joe Biden’s “Have You No Shame” speech on voting rights the other day was passionate, powerful, necessary, mostly on target and yet almost entirely useless. His speech directly addressed and correctly analyzed a critical problem — some would say an existential problem — facing our country, telling a Philadelphia audience: “There’s an unfolding assault taking […]
