    Kathleen Sebelius (aka Kathipotamus) is testifying on the Hill as I post. So far, it looks like fun, although she looked a bit surprised to find out she was going to be sworn in; you know, “swear to tell the truth.” That always complicates matters. I wonder if anyone’s going to ask her about Lady M’s friend’s who works for CGI? Or if anyone will dare mention the Valkarie’s son-in-law’s potential connection to the HHS contract?

    Some advice to the folks at Marylou’s coffee chain, now under investigation by the EEOC, on how to fight back: Start laughing. Back during the Clinton years the EEOC went after Hooters for its alleged hiring bias (we all remember how hard Bill Clinton was on women... uh, let me re-phrase that). Hooters refused to hire men to wear the infamous “orange short-shorts and white tank-top” ensemble. The EEOC spent four years pressuring them to hire male waiters, which would have ruined the Hooters concept. Hooters tried reasoning and logic. As one would expect when dealing with bureaucrats, they failed...

    Ginger White, who today announced that she had a thirteen-year affair with Herman Cain, was the defendant in a libel suit this year. A judge ruled in favor of the plaintiff, Kimberly Bay, and stated that Ms. White had falsely libeled Ms. Bay. Ms. White reportedly lost the suit because she did not even bother responding to the case. Ms. Bay had also sought a temporary stalking protective order against Ms. White, citing harassing emails, texts, and defamation of character. This case, however, was dismissed. When asked about the libel suit in her interview with Fox Five, and why she...

    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 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...

    Every theater-style seat in the White House briefing room, now closed for renovation, had a brass plaque inscribed with the name of a news organization. Only one, in the middle of the front row, had a name: “HELEN THOMAS,” it said. The unique assigned seat between the chairs for CBS News and ABC News was reserved for the legendary United Press International correspondent who is now a columnist for Hearst Newspapers. The press corps is scheduled to move from temporary facilities back into the spiffed-up, rewired briefing room in May or June. Thomas, who has been questioning presidents and press...

    Cindy Sheehan, the mother whose loss of a son in the war in Iraq led her to become the most recognizable face of opposition to the war, confirmed Wednesday she will come to Salt Lake City this month to join protests during the visit of President Bush.

Bush plans to arrive in Utah on Aug. 30 and speak the following day to the group's national convention. Salt Lake City "is a great opportunity for her to be where Bush...

    NEW YORK (Reuters) - A "Presidential Bust" of U.S. Sen. Hillary Clinton was unveiled on Wednesday at New York's Museum of Sex, where sculptor Daniel Edwards hopes it will spark discussion about sex, politics and celebrity. Edwards, the artist who also created a life-size nude of Britney Spears giving birth on a bear-skin rug, said he wanted to capture Clinton's age and femininity in the sculpture. Clinton's office had no immediate comment. Edwards said his work features soft "presidential smile" and wrinkles framing her eyes. A floral pattern runs across her breasts, part of Edwards' effort to present Clinton "as...
