  • DNC's rigged system: Tulsi Gabbard as whistleblower

    We hadn’t thought of Tulsi Gabbard as a whistleblower but the Democratic presidential hopeful from Hawaii may have to enter a witness protection program to be shielded from her own party. Gabbard asked supporters last week whether she should boycott this Tuesday’s televised “debate.” She says it’s not a true debate (she’s right there). She says it’s part of her national party’s effort to replace the role of voters in New Hampshire and elsewhere by “using polling and other arbitrary methods which are not transparent or democratic...” The “so-called debates,” she says, “are not debates at all, but rather commercialized...

    Two senior Republican U.S. senators criticized Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on Sunday for saying that Russia may have the "right approach" on Syria and for what they called his lack of focus on Afghanistan and Pakistan. "His statements about Syria really disturb me. No, (Russian President Vladimir) Putin does not have it right when it comes to Syria," Senator Lindsey Graham said. In separate television interviews, Graham and Senator John McCain, prominent Republican foreign policy voices, took aim at Tillerson's remarks last week that Russia may have "got the right approach" and the United States the wrong approach to...
  • Is Justin Trudeau the sexiest politician in the world?

    Last night, Canada elected genuine heartthrob Justin Trudeau , kicking off what has to be the sexiest political dynasty since the Kennedys. Justin is the son of former Prime Minister Pierre-Elliot Trudeau, himself a bit of a hunk with a loyal and devoted following back in the 70s. Trudeau Jr has luscious brown hair, spellbinding eyes and eyebrows that, we're reliably informed, are "entirely on point." And let's face it, he takes care of himself. He's been known to consider his shirt optional, revealing a chiselled physique a very manly tattoo. Not only that, but he once challenged a Conservative...

I don’t think they qualify there...

    Our third story tonight: this is the day health care reform began to take effect. There could have been a ribbon-cutting. There could have been a speech. There could have been a campaign event. There could have been an emboldened progressive front energized by the miracle of the tangible beginning of the end of the insurance cartel`s stranglehold on this nation now striking back against the sheer, stark, screaming fraud that is the premise of Republican tax cuts for small business like Bechtel and Harris Casinos and “The Chicago Tribune,” or screaming at the laugh-out-loud hilarity of the opposition`s pledge...
  • Buyers Seem to Be Ignoring GM Bankruptcy

    Will consumers buy from a bankrupt auto maker? There always are bargain hunters, but I was certain many would stay away. With Pontiac and Saturn out of the picture, I figured General Motors would be down to 16% market share, losing perhaps another 3% as worried potential buyers talked themselves out of visiting a GM showroom. That would have left GM with as little as 13% share. At least, that’s what I figured, and I have a lot of experience covering failing auto companies. So far, I’m wrong. GM’s market share has been climbing since it left bankruptcy, hitting 20.2%...
  • Is He American Enough? Obama battles a dangerous campaign storyline (Eleanor Clift)

    Some 50 delegates were reportedly poised to unite behind Barack Obama if he had won by even 1 point in Texas. He lost the popular vote by 100,000 ballots, and now we learn that 100,000 Republicans voted for Hillary Clinton, probably not because of some change in party allegiance but because they thought she would be the easier candidate to beat. This kind of strategic voting often backfires (think Ralph Nader). The Texas crossovers are winners. By helping to prolong the Democratic race, they can claim credit for weakening the eventual nominee, whoever it turns out to be. Obama has...

    Public display of affection was inappropriate Thursday, July 13, 2006 My family enjoyed our first visit to your clean and beautiful city on June 24 and 25, as we arrived to deliver our daughter to a summer camp. After a much longer than anticipated drive, we arrived at our destination at 10:30 p.m., unloading our bags at the only possible spot at the hotel: curbside at the Courtyard Marriott on Spring Street. My three children were treated to an eyeful of amorous behavior by the lesbians seated on a public bench, not 10 feet away from us and directly in...
  • No Nursing With 'Distracting' Breasts At YMCA Pool

    ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- The lifeguards find bare breasts distracting. That's one of the reasons officials at the Ann Arbor, Mich., YMCA said they've banned breast-feeding at the pool. But nursing moms counter that's no excuse. The breast-feeding mothers plan a nurse-in at the Y Saturday to protest the ban. However, Krista Dragun, one of the protest organizers, said they'll be nursing their babies in the lobby, not the pool area. She said they want the Y to adopt a more mother-baby friendly policy for the pool. Y officials note there's no eating or drinking allowed at the pool for...

    BERLIN, Md. -- Forgive Charles Walsh if he is a little slow to join the world of speed dating. The 55-year-old divorced father hasn't even been to an evening social event in nearly a decade. "I was married for 20 years, and now I'm nervous," said Mr. Walsh, who preferred to sip a beer at the bar and watch about 50 older adults in this beachside town try speed dating, an adult mixer where men and women are paired for a few minutes of get-to-know-you chat before they switch partners. Older Americans are joining young urban singles in impressive numbers...

    On a December night in 1831, HMS Beagle, on a mission to chart the coast of South America, sailed from Plymouth, England, straight into the 21st century. Onboard was a 22-year-old amateur naturalist, Charles Darwin, the son of a prosperous country doctor, who was recruited for the voyage largely to provide company for the Beagle's aloof and moody captain, Robert FitzRoy. For the next five years, the little ship — just 90 feet long and eight yards wide — sailed up and down Argentina, through the treacherous Strait of Magellan and into the Pacific, before returning home by way of...
