  • Barking mad and proud of it [Pruden on Maxine Waters; GRAPHIC IMAGE WARNING]

    Bonnie and Clyde sometimes called themselves “bank inspectors,” but they were only kidding. The Palestinian Authority, the famous terrorist collective pretending to be a nation, collects $350 million from the U.S. Treasury every year to pay “salaries” to imprisoned terrorists, make love offerings to families of dead terrorists, celebrate terrorists as heroes, build monuments to dead criminals, and other bad things. And that’s no joke. The Palestinian Authority was even invited to an international conference in Paris the other day to talk about how to prevent financing of terrorism, to behead the venomous snake before it bites. That’s the sickest...

    Defense Secretary Leon Panetta says Hillary Clinton inspired his decision to allow women in combat. “And in many ways, I have to tell you, it was her inspiration that encouraged me to move forward to be able to bring down the last barriers for women in the Department of Defense and to give them the ability to have a chance to engage in combat. I thank you for that inspiration,” Panetta told Clinton at a Pentagon ceremony on Thursday. …

  • Bush Passes The Buck On War (Helen Thomas Full Hurl Alert!)

    President George W. Bush still has to learn to say "the buck stops here" when it comes to presidential decisions. The "decider" and commander-in-chief seems to be trying to pass the buck, particularly if the war in Iraq implodes and he has to bring troops home from his disastrous invasion of Iraq. The president is counting on Gen. David Petraeus -- the top military commander in Iraq -- and Iraqi President Nouri al-Maliki to take the fall if his troop "surge" fails. Bush is a long way from that mirage, even with an expected Pentagon buildup of U.S. troops to...
  • Helen Thomas Rips Bush, Calls Democrats 'Chicken'

    Helen Thomas chatted with young [National Press] Club members over breakfast March 13 and with characteristic bluntness dismissed President George W. Bush as a chief executive who has made little contribution. The legendary White House correspondent, who has covered every president since John Kennedy, was acerbically critical of the Democratic Congressional leadership as well. Even at this stage in her long career, Thomas, now a syndicated columnist for Hearst, pointed out that she still depends for information on other journalists. “I’m reading newspapers every day like you are. And as eager as she was to take questions, Thomas was just...

    Sacramento Bee ^ | 10/27/6 | Helen Thomas
    If the Democrats win control of the House in the Nov. 7 midterm elections, Rep. Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., would likely be the first woman in U.S. history to become speaker of the House. The holder of that post is No. 2 in the line of succession for the presidency, right behind the vice president. Democrats need to win 15 seats to gain control of the House from the Republicans who have been in the majority since 1994. If they win, some Democrats have been hinting that they would use their new powers to launch some edgy investigations of the reasons...

    Fabiola Armitage is back on television, only instead of a campaign ad the focus has been on her mugshot. Armitage is a Kerry supporter and a strong believer in stem cell research. She's featured in an advertisement urging Floridians to vote against Amendment 3 on this year's ballot. The amendment would cap how much money a lawyer can make from a medical malpractice lawsuit. St. Johns County Sheriff Deputies arrested Armitage for grand theft and battery this week. They say she had 78 campaign signs supporting George Bush and Mel Martinez in her trunk. Armitage tells First Coast News that...

    Senator Clinton has repeatedly vowed to finish out her first term, which ends in 2006. But she would be foolish to pass up the 2004 opportunity, especially if President Bush's economic plans start to crash and burn and his war whoops lead to body bags. Clinton would leap to the front of the pack on name recognition alone. She's a terrific fundraiser and New York voters would forgive her if she made a credible but unsuccessful run. She would return to the Senate as a more powerful member and be a battle-tested contender for 2008. COLLEGE PARK, MD. -...

    ARI FLEISCHER: And with that, I'm more than happy to take your questions. Helen. HELEN THOMAS, Hearst Newspapers columnist: At the earlier briefing, Ari, you said that the President deplored the taking of innocent lives. Does that apply to all innocent lives in the world? And I have a follow-up. FLEISCHER: I refer specifically to a horrible terrorist attack on Tel Aviv that killed scores and wounded hundreds. And the President, as he said in his statement yesterday, deplores in the strongest terms the taking of those lives and the wounding of those people, innocents in Israel. THOMAS: My follow-up...
