    Arizona lawman Joe Arpaio reminded everyone why he’s considered “America’s toughest sheriff” when he took a Fox News anchor to task in a live interview this afternoon. Appearing on “America Live” with Megyn Kelly, Arpaio told Kelly she was wrong in some of her reporting about a federal investigation into his treatment of Hispanics in Maricopa County, Ariz. The U.S. Justice Department is looking into allegations of racial profiling, a charge Arpaio denies, and the federal government wants Arpaio to allow an independent monitor to oversee the conduct of his office. The Obama administration announced it’s now preparing to sue...

    Sarasota, Fla. (AP) -- Newt Gingrich has staked his presidential bid on the idea that he's best positioned to defeat President Barack Obama. Yet even some supporters seem to be struggling to buy that claim, an indication that efforts by chief rival Mitt Romney to undercut him may be working. "Beating Obama is more important than everything else," Patrick Roehl, a 51-year-old computer software engineer, said at a Gingrich rally inside a Sarasota airport hangar this past week. "Can Newt win? I'm not sure. He's got a lot of high negatives. The elections are won and lost in the middle....

    After last night’s show of civility across party lines at the State of the Union, Rep. Darrell Issa’s first Oversight Committee hearing on bailouts and the foreclosure crisis started with a bout over procedure. At the start of the hearing, chairman Rep. Darrell Issa announced the committee members would waive their opening statements and instead would have seven days to place them into the record. Rep. Elijah Cummings, the committee’s ranking Democrat, immediately fought back questioning this deviation in traditional procedure, but Issa held his ground.

    Republican presidential candidate John McCain chided his Democratic rival on Wednesday for getting "a little testy" as Barack Obama sharpened his tone amid a tightening White House race that gets nastier by the day. "I honor his service. I don't honor his policies. I don't honor his politics," Obama said, taking on his GOP opponent with renewed vigor while some Democrats fret that their candidate has not been aggressive enough. Both candidates also unveiled fresh attack advertisements ahead of their back-to-back national conventions. Trying anew to tie McCain to the unpopular President Bush, Obama's TV commercial asks: "Can we really...

    SYDNEY, Australia - Vice President Dick Cheney, in a series of blunt and sometimes biting statements during a visit to Asia, defended the Iraq war, attacked administration critics at home and warned that the U.S. would confront potential adversaries abroad. His visit was meant to thank Australia and Japan for their support in Iraq. But in a series of public appearances and media interviews, Cheney's tone was typically feisty. Answering growing criticism in the U.S. and Australia, he defended the Iraq war as a "remarkable achievement" in one speech, and dismissed suggestions his influence in Washington is waning. At a...

    After 14 years representing the Inland area in Sacramento, Assemblyman Ray Haynes, R-Murrieta, has opined on many things in his rarely subtle approach to politics. On Democrats: "Most of the Democrats want us to be nice little Republicans and pat us on the heads. Well, sorry. You're going to have to fight me for what you got." On air-quality regulators: "We have a bunch of clean-air Nazis that have been running roughshod over the people of California ... because they think they've got God and nature on their side." On himself: "I've developed a persona that Haynes is kind of...

    NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - A gene found in redheads and fair-skinned people may also play a role in the body's natural pain suppression system. But the gene, Mc1r, appears to impact pain suppression only in women, according to the study, published Monday in the advance online publication of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (news - web sites). The researchers found that redheaded women were able to tolerate more pain than other people when given an analgesic drug called pentazocine. All redheaded men, as well as men and women who did not have red hair, had similar-and...

    <p>Bush’s Chicago economic speech should have been noted in Baghdad because it showed that he is feeling feisty and not flinching from fights.</p> <p>Jan. 20 issue — The President’s economic policy announced last Tuesday in Chicago refutes the notion that today’s disputes between the two parties express merely “the narcissism of small differences.” The president spoke the day the 108th Congress convened, and what he said means that the 108th will bear some resemblance to the 97th. It convened in January 1981 and eight months later passed the landmark legislation of that decade, President Ronald Reagan’s tax cuts.</p>
