    Lena Dunham is reportedly threatening to sue the right-wing website which last week accused her of sexually abusing her little sister Grace when they were children. In the wake of the allegations, the creator and star of HBO's Girls, has cancelled two stops on her book tour scheduled this week in Belgium and Germany for health issues. On Monday, she tweeted that she was 'deeply sorry' to miss the Antwerp Book Fair and a signing in Berlin, adding that she's 'so grateful for your energy and support'.

    Lena Dunham has canceled two book tour dates in Europe amid accusations that she molested her sister when they were children. The actress tweeted on Monday that she was no longer going to attend events in Belgium and Germany. "To my Belgian readers, so very sorry to miss the Antwerp Book Fair today but I can't wait to come back and eat fries with you. Much love," she wrote. "German readers: I am deeply sorry to miss tomorrow's event in Berlin. I am so grateful for your energy and support. Mit viele liebe." The "Girls" star, 28, has been criticized...

    Mitt Romney and his former running mate, Paul Ryan, will be making their first public appearance together since losing to Obama/Biden two years ago. Ryan is traveling the country to promote a book and is also said to be considering a run for the White House himself. Romney will interview Ryan Thursday night on stage at the Union League Club of Chicago. Ryan's book has met some criticism given its handling of the immigration issue - which is increasingly being exposed as a stone cold loser of an issue in the very mid-term elections Ryan suggested it be used by...

    A standard defense for Hillary Rodham Clinton when facing questions about Benghazi, Libya, has been to cite her commissioning of a report from the State Department’s Accountability Review Board (ARB), which took a deep look at the attacks that claimed the lives of four U.S. personnel on Sept. 11, 2012. In testimony before Congress in January 2013, Clinton said: “I hurried to appoint the Accountability Review Board led by Ambassador Pickering and Admiral Mullen so we could more fully understand from objective, independent examination, what went wrong and how to fix it. I have accepted every one of their recommendations.”...

    Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you probably already know that Hillary Clinton has a memoir coming out. “Hard Choices” hits bookshelves nationwide next Tuesday and a month-long, cross-country book tour will follow. Notably, however, for the potential presidential contender, there are no stops planned – yet – in Iowa, New Hampshire, or any other politically key, early-primary state. And there’s at least one other big hole in her schedule: Arkansas – the state that launched Bill and Hillary Clinton’s political careers. Clinton has yet to announce any stops there, although her tour schedule continues to evolve by the...

    I can feel the schadenfreude welling inside me as I read that a group of Cherokee women are preparing to confront Elizabeth Warren as she sets forth on a national book tour to publicize her new book.  Sen. Warren matters a lot more than most freshman senators because she must be considered a near-frontrunner for the Democratic 2016 nomination if Hillary Clinton decides that playing with her forthcoming grandchild is better way to occupy her time than going through the meat grinder as a candidate. In Elizabeth Warren’s new book, A Fighting Chance, Warren claims to be “hurt and angry”...

Ricks asserted the incident amounted to a "small firefight" and said, "I think that the emphasis on...

    By suspending his campaign instead of quitting his campaign, Herman can still get federal matching funds in 2012. But the campaign is over. Even had it continued, it was over. I had thought and expected that Cain would continue until Iowa. He had enough money. Dropping out after losing in Iowa would have distracted from the present issues. Dropping out now will be viewed by a great many as an admission against interests that Herman Cain did have a 13 year affair.

    Herman Cain has surged into the lead in several national polls of GOP primary voters, but he remains in second place in most polls of early voting states. That difference points to the challenge faced by Cain, who lacks the ground troops important in the Iowa caucuses and New Hampshire primary, if he wants to turn his momentum into victories in early 2012. In the Iowa caucuses, Real Clear Politics's average of recent polls show Romney leading Cain 22 percent to 18 percent. Cain is further behind Romney in New Hampshire, where the former Massachusetts governor is a heavy favorite....

    Herman Cain tested the national spotlight Sunday as the Republican presidential primary’s newest front-runner. Facing tough questions during a 25-minute one-on-one interview on NBC’s "Meet the Press," Cain acknowledged that his plan to simplify the tax code would raise taxes for “some” people and clarified his position that he doesn’t believe abortion should be an option in instances of rape and incest. Scrapping the current federal tax code — which he described as a “10-million-word mess” — would eliminate a host of invisible taxes and eventually reduce prices, Cain said. Some economists have pointed out that Cain’s plan would shift...

    When pressed for answers today on Iran, Afghanistan and Iraq, the best Cain could do was to repeat his mantra that he would consult experts and then figure it out. Which is to say that he knows he hasn’t a clue but hopes no one will care. The program also produced Cain’s admission that he had no familiarity with the neoconservative movement. While being a subscriber to COMMENTARY isn’t a requirement for the presidency, the idea that someone running for that office had not even heard the term suggests that Cain is not only bereft of foreign policy experience, he...

    Mr. Cain, a contender for the Republican presidential nomination, did all but one thing — campaign. Not in the traditional meet-the-public and kiss-the-babies sense, anyway. And according to his public campaign calendar of events, where 19 of the 31 days of October are blank, there will not be much glad-handing in the immediate future. That is just fine with Mr. Cain, a former business executive who has recently surged to the top tier of candidates in early polls. The latest Quinnipiac University poll, released Wednesday, found Mitt Romney and Mr. Cain essentially tied within the poll’s margin of sampling error....

The Wall Street Journal's Daniel Henninger has called Cain “a credible candidate” who “deserves a serious look,” while Michael Barone now labels him “a contender.” And over the weekend, Cain won another straw poll, this one sponsored by the National Federation of Republican Women. One reason why he’s resonating with conservatives is that he’s a non-politician with a business record (which might explain why Cain’s getting a second look but Rick Santorum isn’t). So Cain now has his moment, and...

The tour has more of a heartland concentration than the 35-city tour for her memoir “Going Rogue” (the best-selling nonfiction book of 2009) and adds...

    NEW YORK, N.Y. For her next book tour, Sarah Palin will again skip some of the nation's biggest cities. HarperCollins announced Wednesday that the former Republican vice-presidential candidate and Alaska governor will be on the road from Nov. 23 to Dec. 3, with a break for Thanksgiving, to promote "American by Heart: Reflections on Family, Faith, and Flag." The book comes out Nov. 23 and is her first since her memoir, "Going Rogue." As with "Going Rogue," Palin will not make appearances in New York, Los Angeles, Seattle, San Francisco or other cities where Democrats are more in favour....

    We misunderestimated the date of his book release. Friends of former president George W. Bush said he pushed back the launch of his memoir "Decision Points" out of fear that the book could negatively affect the outcome of the midterm elections, the Financial Times reported. Initially Bush was going to launch the book in September, which is a better time from a sales perspective. Instead, the book will hit the shelves on Nov. 9, a week after Election Day, when the GOP is expected to make large gains. Unlike other officials from the Bush Administration, the former president himself has...

    Former Alaska governor has earned roughly $12 million since stepping down from her job as Alaska governor at the end of July, according to a "conservative estimate" on the part of ABC News. Palin had been making $125,000 per year as Alaska's governor. The controversial 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee was reportedly paid $7 million for her book "Going Rogue," mostly after she stepped down. She is said to be getting $250,000 per episode for her television series on the Learning Channel and charge up to $100,000 deliver a speech, which she does regularly. ABC News writes that Palin's earnings...

    Pundits can debate the political costs and benefits of Sarah Palin's decision to step down as Alaska governor, but the monetary advantages of leaving her $125,000-a-year public service post are beyond dispute. Since leaving office at the end of July 2009, the 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee has brought in at least 100 times her old salary – a haul now estimated at more than $12 million -- through television and book deals and a heavy schedule of speaking appearances worth five and six figures. That conservative estimate is based on publicly available records and news accounts. The actual number...

    LA JOLLA — Protesters lined up in front of Warwick’s bookstore in La Jolla yesterday evening as Karl Rove, one-time senior adviser to former President George W. Bush, signed copies of his new book inside under tight security. About 200 people waited to meet Rove, who is on a national book tour. A line stretched around the building on Girard Avenue. Only two people were allowed inside at a time.
