Apparently, the newly hired Elizabeth Hasselbeck with become the morning Fox on the Fox and Friends couch. Whither goeth Meg Kelley. 1. Not replacing O'Reilley, Hannity, or Greta. Unless one of those are announcing retirement or a new partnership (Hannity and Kelly?), neither of which seems likely to me, then she'll not be replacing those flagship programs for Fox News. 2. That leaves 2 evening slots, one I like but don't watch, and the other of which I...

    CHARLESTON, S.C. – Former Republican South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford revived a scandal-scarred political career by winning back his old congressional seat Tuesday in a district that hasn't elected a Democrat in three decades. The comeback was complete when he defeated Democrat Elizabeth Colbert Busch, the sister of political satirist Stephen Colbert. With 87 percent of the precincts reporting, Sanford had 54 percent of the vote. Sanford, who turns 53 later this month, has never lost a race in three runs for Congress and two for governor. And he said before the votes were counted Tuesday that if he lost...

    “A Blessed Visitation” (Luke 1:39-45)It was a meeting of the moms. Two expectant mothers, one old, one young. One was six months along; the other, newly pregnant. And the fact that they were expecting was totally unexpected! Both of them were pregnant when really neither one of them should have been, under normal circumstances. But these circumstances were anything but normal. What was happening was much better than normal. This meeting of the moms was the visitation of Mary to Elizabeth. Elizabeth was the older woman; Mary, the younger. Elizabeth was in her sixth month; Mary’s pregnancy had just started....

    A reader at Professor William Jacobson's Legal Insurrection blog has offered convincing evidence that Elizabeth Warren's husband, Bruce Mann, also contributed a plagiarized recipe to the infamous Pow Wow Chow cookbook. Subtitled A Collection of Recipes from Families of the Five Civilized Tribes: Cherokee, Chickasaw, Choctaw, Creek & Seminole, the cookbook was edited by Warren's cousin, Candy Rowsey, and first published in 1984. As Breitbart News reported earlier, Ms. Warren contributed at least two recipes to the cookbook that were word for word copies of previously published recipes. Now, it appears her husband may have done the same thing. His...

Line 14 of the death certificate allowed the informant to specificy the race of the deceased. Presented with the option of selecting "American Indian," "Black," or "White," Ms. Warren chose to identify Aunt Bea's race as White. Thirteen years later, Ms. Warren was telling a different...

    Elizabeth Warren, Harvard law professor and former Obama administration regulator (for consumer protection), is modern liberalism incarnate. As she seeks the Senate seat Democrats held for 57 years before 2010, when Republican Scott Brown impertinently won it, she clarifies the liberal project and the stakes of contemporary politics. The project is to dilute the concept of individualism, thereby refuting respect for the individual’s zone of sovereignty. The regulatory state, liberalism’s instrument, constantly tries to contract that zone

Her selection will appease a slew of prominent lawmakers, progressives, and labor unions who in recent months have clamored for her nomination to the post.

    Hillary Clinton, the US Secretary of State, has been left red faced after mistakenly sending a birthday message to the Queen a week early. An official statement from the US foreign policy chief paid tribute to the "Queen’s life and legacy,” despite the fact that the Monarch does not celebrate her official birthday until next weekend. The diplomatic faux pas, sent on behalf of President Barack Obama and the American people on Friday, also celebrated the "special relationship" between the British and US governments.

He spoke out over press reports in Britain which highlighted details of his colourful private life ahead of his state visit to London, which starts today.

    Old Western ManThe travellers trotted on, and as the sun began to sink towards the White Downs far away on the western horizon they came to Bywater by its wide pool, and there they had their first really painful shock. This was Frodo and Sam's own country, and they found out now that they cared about it more than any other place in the world. Many of the houses that they had known were missing. Some seemed to have been burned down. The pleasant row of old hobbit-holes in the bank in the north side of the Pool were deserted,...
