Pruden: A true heroine, right on the money

By Wesley Pruden | A lady with a gun deserves better than this. No sooner had Jacob Lew, the secretary of the Treasury, announced that Harriet Tubman, a fearless gunfighter against slavery, would soon replace Andrew Jackson on the face of the $20 bill than snipers on left and right turned out in force. Miss […]

Pruden: How the Donald could defeat Hillary

By Wesley Pruden | It’s a given among the tired, the poor and the voters tossed in the tempest of the presidential campaign that the noisy masses, yearning to breathe free of the smoke of battle, must resign themselves to the latest inevitability of Hillary Clinton: Donald Trump can’t beat her, neither can Ted Cruz, […]

Donald Trump’s shtick of insulting everybody and complaining that, like Rodney Dangerfield, he […]

By Wesley Pruden | If you believe Cassandra and other doom-criers, this may be remembered as the year they gave an election and nobody came.
