  • Yup, Piers Morgan is Trying for FOX News

    I called it on Friday. And it’s also an obvious audition for FOX News.It wouldn’t surprise me at all if Morgan started slowly popping up there with thought of eventually giving him a show. It sounds implausible, but it’s not like FOX News doesn’t have even worse people sitting behind a desk. And here we are. Last night former CNN host Piers Morgan did something he never thought he’d do by sitting down for an interview at Fox News headquarters in New York City with Sean Hannity. Morgan is still set in his anti-Second Amendment views, but during the...
  • Ready for Hillarys Running Mate? (No, REally. Seriesly. Beelzabubba)

    Hillary Clintons running mate. The ideal candidate would be someone clearly equipped by experience to handle the presidency at a moments notice, and who was held in high esteem by the public; maybe even someone who exemplified a time when Americans felt better about their countrys prospects. By that measure, there is at first glance one obvious choice: Bill Clinton. He would be by far the most clearly qualified candidate for the job. More than two-thirds of Americans look on him favorably, and last year, 55 percent told Gallup they saw Clinton as an outstanding or above-average president.

    Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) confirmed on Wednesday that the House GOPs principles on immigration reform would endorse giving legal status to undocumented immigrants. Ryan reiterated there would be no special pathway to citizenship for those immigrants, but said they would be able to apply for a green card after a long set of requirement were met. He did not, however, provide a timeline. The former vice presidential candidate said the principles would also outline a probationary work status those illegal immigrants would be initially defined under until the border is secure and a host of other requirements are satisfied. That...

    Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) on Wednesday said he would like to see a clean funding resolution pass the House to end the government shutdown. McCain expressed hesitancy at criticizing Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) or Republicans in the House but said he is trying to convince them to sit down and negotiate. I would like to see that myself, McCain said on CNN when asked if he would like to see the House take up the measure. But also again I really am hesitant to pile on members of the House of Representatives. I try to keep in mind that many...

    The heckling came at the end of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's speech at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia which she gave in acceptance for the 2013 Liberty Medal, Tuesday night. In her speech, Hillary kept it bland, largely staying away from controversial issues: Clinton paid lip service to the pressing questions of the day: how the United States should respond to the use of chemical weapons -- the question at stake in Syria -- and how it should balance the need for both liberty and security. But she did not offer any concrete answer on these highly...

    If Syria were to surrender its chemical weapons to international control, it would be "an important step" toward avoiding military consequences, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Monday. Following a meeting with President Barack Obama, Clinton suggested that the situation in Syria was "fluid," nodding to an offer by Russian diplomats to organize the handover of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's chemical weapons to an international governing body. If the regime immediately surrendered its stockpiles to international control, as was suggested by Secretary Kerry and the Russians, that would be an important step. But this cannot be another excuse for delay...

    A few months ago in this space, I wrote a column about the cultural phenom Lady Gaga that ended with my politely telling her to save her money. That's because the treacherous world of popular culture is not usually a long-term proposition. Entertainment idols often pass through the fame obstacle course very quickly. In show biz, "jumping the shark" is a term used to describe a project in decline. It is derived from the hit sitcom "Happy Days," which, sorely lacking for material after years on the air, featured a show whereby The Fonz went waterskiing in a leather jacket...

This weeks uproar over Herman Cains CNN interview with Piers Morgan will likely be a distant and irrelevant memory by Jan. 3. Despite Cains rhetorical difficulty in consistently articulating a pro-life position, his bona fides on the issue have long been established, as demonstrated in 2006 when he led a $1 million effort to encourage black voters to vote pro-life.

Gingrich's announcement, made on social networking websites Monday, came after months of public flirting with a bid. He enters a slow-to-form GOP presidential field that has left some Republicans craving more options as they search for a nominee strong enough to credibly challenge President Barack Obama. The former Georgia congressman, well-known to most Republicans, brings to the race a years-in-the-making political machine with ties to early nominating states as well as a network...

Bush isn't following the Republican Party line when it comes to the issue of the health care legislation that cleared Congress last spring without any GOP support. In an interview on Fox News Sunday, Barbara Bush said she's "glad" Democrats passed the massive spending measure and President Barack Obama signed it into law. "Why do, basically, people with money have good health care and why do people who live on lower salaries not have good health care?" the 28-year old said. "Health should be a right for everyone." Asked specifically what...

  • Gingrich Condemns Conservative Leaders For Driving Moderate GOPer Out Of NY Race

    Sign of the times. Newt Gingrich, himself long considered a leader of the GOPs conservative wing, is now condemning conservative leaders for driving moderate GOPer Dede Scozzafava out of the race for NY-23, warning that if national conservatives keep bigfooting local races the GOP will continue to wander the wilderness around the country: This makes life more complicated from the standpoint of this: If we get into a cycle where every time one side loses, they run a third-party candidate, well make Pelosi speaker for life and guarantee Obamas re-election, said Mr. Gingrich, who had endorsed Ms. Scozzafava I think...

    When Barack Obama won Florida last November the first Democrat to take the Sunshine State since FDR many saw it as a sign of centrist GOP Governor Charlie Crist's moderating influence. But lately, Florida's disgruntled Republicans aren't looking very moderate. This week, in fact, the peninsula's GOP registered arguably the loudest outcry over the education speech President Obama plans to deliver to U.S. primary and secondary students via webcast and C-Span next Tuesday. In perhaps the most over-the-top performance, state Republican Chairman Jim Greer called it an attempt to use "our children to spread liberal propaganda" and "President...

    Dear Mr. Robinson: I've given the matter quite a bit of thought and have decided it is time to ZOT you. I was tempted when I noticed posters were allowed to insult anyone who disagreed with them; even more tempted when I saw new posters banned for asking questions, or expressing an opinion outside the mainstream - (though I must confess anyone adopting the screen name "Christ was killed by conservatives" was not going to last very long ! I'm sure he was referring to the Sanhedrin, but still...) When I saw your post today about getting "millions of people"...

    A former Romney administration public safety czar and Bay State police chief is scrambling to save his reputation after he was caught in an embarrassing scandal over an affair with a reporter covering him in his new post as Milwaukees top cop.

The married reporter, Jessica McBride, 39, a college journalism lecturer and freelancer, and Flynn,...
