    Today in Indiana Carly Fiorina represented the visible metaphor for the Ted Cruz campaign when she literally fell off the stage – and Ted Cruz ignored her distress. You can’t make this stuff up folks:

    Ted Cruz showed remarkable fighting spirit in the Republican presidential debate on Thursday, lacing Donald Trump with the same kind of brilliant and witty lines that he's used in his fights against Mitch McConnell. When Trump's bogus charges against Cruz's eligibility to be President were raised, Cruz turned the tables on him, remarking that Trump had no problems with his eligibility several months earlier, giving this incredible one liner: Since September, the Constitution hasn't changed, but the poll numbers have. Trump looked very uncomfortable at that. But Cruz was just beginning, He even pointed on that Trump's own mother was...

    Donald Trump latest's close-up is coming from the unlikeliest of magazines: Rolling Stone. The magazine, well known for its progressive bent, interviewed and photographed Trump for its September 24 cover. The article's most-talked-about passage on Wednesday was a Trump comment about rival Republican 2016 candidate Carly Fiorina. Writer Paul Solotaroff was sitting with Trump watching a newscast when a video clip zoomed in on Fiorina. "Look at that face! Would anyone vote for that?" Trump said to Solotaroff. "Can you imagine that, the face of our next president. Trump added, "I mean, she's a woman, and I'm not s'posedta say...

    "There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what," Romney says in one clip. "There are 47 percent who are with him, who are dependent on government, who believe that, that they are victims, who believe that government has the responsibility to care for them. Who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing." Adding to his argument about entitlement, Romney said his "job is not to worry about those people." "I'll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives," he added.
  • After the game, Oregon football player Blount punches BSU player and confronts fans (Video)

    09/03/2009 11:24:29 PM PDT · by Cheap_Hessian · 47 replies · 3,039+ views
    But the lasting image from this highly anticipated kickoff to the 2009 college football season may be Blount punching Boise State's Byron Hout after the final whistle and then needing to be restrained from fans by police on the field. As the Broncos began celebrating on their famous blue turf, Hout yelled in Blount's face and tapped him on the shoulder pad. That drew an immediate scream from Boise State head coach Chris Petersen, but before Petersen could pull Hout away, Blount landed a right hand to the defensive end's jaw. Then as Blount was being pulled off the field,...

    Sarah Palin is seeking the advice of a Scientologist as she plots her 2012 presidential run, which just makes sense to us. John P. Coale, a prominent Washington lawyer and power-broker, is secretly running Palin's political action committee and working to "protect the Palin brand," according to the Washington Post. He is very, very good at doing that because he can walk through walls and read minds and leave his body and never gets sick because he is a Scientologist.

    President Obama will keep the broken promises made by President Bush to rebuild New Orleans and the Gulf Coast. He and Vice President Biden will take steps to ensure that the federal government will never again allow such catastrophic failures in emergency planning and response to occur. President Obama swiftly responded to Hurricane Katrina. Citing the Bush Administration's "unconscionable ineptitude" in responding to Hurricane Katrina, then-Senator Obama introduced legislation requiring disaster planners to take into account the specific needs of low-income hurricane victims. Obama visited thousands of Hurricane survivors in the Houston Convention Center and later took three more trips...

    Barack Obama conducted his first press conference as President Elect, with Vice President Elect Joe Biden and his Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel at his side and his economic advisors, looking appropriately dour and serious, standing behind him. There was not much in the way of news made at the Obama press conference, aside from a shot taken at an old lady named Nancy Reagan. The majority of the questions were about the current economic situation and what Obama intends to do about it. The short answer appears to be the enactment of some kind of economic stimulus package, the...

    The day before today's New Hampshire primary, Hillary Clinton desperately searched for issues she could use against Barack Obama. Unfortunately, she made the mistake of attacking him for what she called his inconsistent record on the Iraq war. Remember, Obama, as an Illinois state senator, opposed the war in 2002, and Clinton, a U.S. senator from New York, voted to give President Bush the authority to go to war against Iraq. You would think Iraq would be the last issue Clinton would raise against Obama, who has tapped into a public hunger for change in Washington. "If you make a...
  • Mike Huckabee's Low Blow

    12/13/2007 5:43:42 AM PST · by Kaslin · 152 replies · 127+ views ^ | December 13, 2007 | Hugh Hewitt
    When Mike Huckabee asked a New York Times' reporter, "Don't Mormons believe that Jesus and the devil are brothers," he crossed a line he cannot uncross. Previous to this he had played a game of teasing the anti-Mormon vote, and had been called on it by Charles Krauthammer and others. But Huckabee had maintained deniability. No more. Huckabee's obvious attempt to salt the mine and get the reporter to carry antt-Mormon rhetoric into the paper without Huckabee's fingerprints on it backfired, and the transparent attempt to use the MSM to further the anti-Mormon message was repulsive. Until he crossed that...

    Republican presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee says he has apologized to rival Mitt Romney for questioning whether Mormons believe Jesus and the devil are brothers. On CNN, Huckabee said he told Romney "face to face" after today's debate in Iowa that he was sorry for the quote from an article to be published in Sunday's New York Times Magazine. Huckabee told CNN that he had asked if Mormons believe Jesus and the devil are brothers because it was something he had heard, adding that he never thought his query would appear in the story. On NBC's "Today" show, Romney said "attacking...

    Mitt Romney accused Mike Huckabee, his rival for the Republican presidential nomination, of attacking his religion yesterday after Mr Huckabee suggested that Mormons believe that Jesus and the Devil are brothers. (snip) Mr Huckabee was referring to a Mormon belief that God created all beings, including Lucifer, who is regarded as a fallen angel. Mormonism does not refer to Jesus and the Devil as brothers. Jan Shipps, a non-Mormon expert on the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints — as the Mormon Church is formally called — told The Times that Mr Huckabee’s remarks were a “perversion” of Mormon...

    Statue of Reagan heads to Capitol as critics protest Resolution passed in final hours of legislative session By Robin Hindery ASSOCIATED PRESS January 2, 2007 SACRAMENTO – Under a joint resolution passed with little fanfare in the waning hours of California's 2006 legislative session, the statue of the man who helped preserve California's statehood during the Civil War will be uprooted from its home in the nation's Capitol. The bronze likeness of Thomas Starr King, which has represented California in The National Statuary Hall Collection since 1931, will be replaced with one of a figure more recognizable to later generations:...

    Dear Mr. Moderator: Please don't remove this post from Breaking News. This post should stand as a repository of every one of Chris Matthews's acts of crass, intellectually dishonest, boorish, and/or distemperate behavior of this election cycle. I start this post with my impressions of Chris Matthews, his recent instances of belligerance, and all his fawning obsequiousness to his own self-image. I find it amazing that he is associated with the same network that once employed David Brinkley. After watching Matthews this campaign cycle, he has thrown away any pretense of fairness or anything approaching such. It is one thing...

    Natalie Maines of the 'Dixie Chicks' created quite an uproar the night of the president's decision to declare war on Iraq in 2003. Maines stated that the Dixie Chicks as a whole were 'ashamed' of the Bush decision and Maines said she was "embarrassed he was from Texas." The group refused to retract their statement, and instead responded to the criticism by releasing their new single 'Not Ready To Make Nice,' earlier this year. According the New York Post's Page Six, The Chicks' biggest detractor, founder Jim Robinson, reportedly declined to appear in their documentary, "Shut Up and Sing."...

    AS SPECIAL COUNSEL to President Richard Nixon Charles Colson was known as Nixon's hatchet man and one of the most hated men in America. After he left the Nixon administration he was caught in the snare of Watergate. Although he was only peripherally involved in the scandal, he pled guilty and served seven months in prison on an attenuated criminal charge related to the Ellsberg break-in.In 1976 Colson published Born Again, a best-selling account of the conversion experience that followed his government service but preceded his incarceration. When Nicholas von Hoffman reviewed the book for the Washington Post that year,...

But that's exactly what NARAL's new television ad attacking Judge Roberts does. ----------------break------------------ As for the ad, it focuses on Emily Lyons, who was injured when Eric Rudolph bombed an abortion clinic in Birmingham, Ala., in 1998. Says Mrs. Lyons, "When a bomb ripped through my clinic, I almost lost my life." The announcer then says, "Supreme Court nominee John Roberts filed court briefs supporting violent fringe groups and a convicted clinic bomber." The "court briefs" in question is an...
