    FULL TITLE: Bernie Sanders Unleashed: Trump Is the 'Most Racist, Sexist, Homophobic, Bigoted President in History' Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) went after President Trump Tuesday while he was campaigning for Maryland gubernatorial candidate Ben Jealous (D). He called Trump “the most racist, sexist, homophobic, bigoted president in history." Sanders told the crowd that Democratic campaign staffers across the country “are working to make certain that the agenda of the most racist, sexist, homophobic, bigoted president in history will go nowhere because Democrats will control the House and the Senate.” Unlike former Vice President Joe Biden, Sanders said earlier this week...

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- Sen. Richard G. Lugar, Indiana Republican, said Wednesday he'll vote to confirm Elena Kagan as a Supreme Court justice. Mr. Lugar is the second in the GOP to announce he's breaking with his party to back President Obama's nominee to succeed retiring Justice John Paul Stevens. Mr. Lugar said he carefully followed Ms. Kagan's confirmation hearing testimony and the debate about her nomination, including recommendations from his constituents, and concluded that she clearly is qualified to serve on the high court.

    So in Eminem's new video, he's in the sack with a Sarah Palin clone when he breaks wind. How edgy. How in your face. Way to speak truth to power — even if it's from your ass. But what do you expect from a white, balding rapper about to hit 40 and desperately clinging to any shred of relevance — not unlike his white, balding fans already over forty desperately clinging to jobs in telemarketing.
  • Not fade away: Rolling Stones singer Jagger turns 65

    Breitbart ^ | 7/25/08 | staff
    Mick Jagger, the snake-hipped, rubber-lipped frontman of the Rolling Stones, celebrates his 65th birthday Saturday but shows no signs of slowing down, despite officially becoming an old age pensioner. At an age when most British men are retiring from work and claiming state pensions, Jagger is dating a woman some 25 years his junior -- stylist L'Wren Scott -- counting his millions after the Stones' record-grossing "Bigger Bang" tour and branching out into film production. His behaviour may not be as hellraising as that of fellow Stone Ronnie Wood, who last week entered rehab to receive treatment for alcohol abuse...

    Avuncular he might be, but Bob Schieffer can sling Dem spin like a Shrum. Appearing on the CBS Evening News to comment on the Libby verdict, not only did Katie Couric's predecessor in the anchor chair paint things in the grimmest possible terms for Vice-President Cheney, he took things an unsolicited step further. Katie Couric asked Schieffer "how badly does this reflect on Mr. Cheney in your view?" Schieffer: "Very badly, and it's hard to conclude otherwise." View video here.Schieffer acknowledged that: "The prosecutor did not prove any underlying crime here."Right. For the simple fact that there was no...
  • Mike Wallace Says Iranian President an 'Impressive Fellow'

    Veteran CBS journalist Mike Wallace described current Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad as an "impressive fellow" following their meeting Tuesday in Tehran. "You'll find him an interesting man," the 88-year-old Wallace said. "I expected more of a firebrand. I don't think he has the slightest doubt about how he feels ... about the American administration and the Zionist state. He comes across as more rational than I had expected."

    He's in his late 80s, a little unsteady on the legs and, as he describes it, "as deaf as a damn post." Former "CBS Evening News" anchor Walter Cronkite might be a lion in winter, but during a brief visit to Los Angeles earlier this week he showed that he's still a lion. Cronkite, who retired from the anchor chair in 1980, has had a quarter-century to watch broadcast news from the sidelines, and he doesn't think the current generation of TV journalists is doing a bad job. Corporate broadcast owners, though, are another story, says Cronkite. He believes they...

    ADDIS ABABA (Reuters) - Former U.S. president and international poll observer Jimmy Carter urged Ethiopia's opposition parties to take their seats in parliament as he gave qualified support for the country's disputed election. The electoral board's final results from the May poll showed Prime Minister Meles Zenawi's ruling Ethiopian Peoples' Revolutionary Democratic Front and allies won enough seats in the 547-member parliament to form the next government. But the main opposition parties, the Coalition for Unity and Democracy and the United Ethiopian Democratic Forces, have alleged widespread fraud and threatened not to take their seats when the new parliament convenes...

    WASHINGTON — It's time for the Democratic Party to take a courageous stand and call for the withdrawal of troops from the senseless war in Iraq. Its human cost and the billion-dollar a week tab in Iraq should give all Americans pause. Would the Republicans have hesitated to challenge the Democrats if the shoe was on the other foot? Did the opposition party give former President Bill Clinton any slack while he was in office? What is the logic of Sens. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., Joseph Biden, D-Del. and other so-called moderate Democrats still backing the unprovoked war in Iraq when...

    At least 20 people were injured Friday morning when an out-of-control sport utility vehicle about to be auctioned off plowed into bystanders and cars in Yaphank, Suffolk police said. Smoke and flying car parts sent the crowd of about 500 into panic, witnesses and police said. The wholesale auto auction at Adesa on Patchogue-Yaphank Road had been under way for almost two hours when the driver of a 2003 Lincoln Navigator set off a chain-reaction crash involving six other vehicles, just before 11 a.m. It was not known what caused the driver, Louis Amelia, 78, of Moriches, to lose control...

    DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Air traffic at Des Moines International Airport was temporarily halted when a disoriented 70-year-old man drove in through an exit gate and led security on a chase onto an active taxiway. Duane Edwards Sheets drove through an open gate at the adjacent Iowa Air National Guard base Tuesday, nearly striking a guard who tried to stop him, said Col. Greg Schwab, commander of the 132nd Air Fighter Wing. Airport security and police took over the chase after Sheets crossed onto airport property, where he drove along service roads, hit a fence and was chased onto...

    CRONKITE: KARL ROVE BEHIND BIN LADEN TAPE Sat Oct 30 2004 16:31:19 ET Former CBSNEWS anchorman Walter Cronkite believes Bush adviser Karl Rove is possibly behind the new Bin Laden tape. Cronkite made the startling comments late Friday during an interview on CNN. Cronkite said he is "inclined to think that Karl Rove, the political manager at the White House, who is a very clever man, he probably set up bin Laden to this thing." Interviewer Larry King did not ask Cronkite to elaborate on the provocative election eve accusation. Developing...
