    A 23-year-old topless woman had to be hauled out of a Minnesota United soccer game over the weekend after she allegedly gave a 7-year-old fan quite an eyeful before his mom covered his eyes. Rose M. Picklo, was charged Monday with indecent exposure in front of a child, a gross misdemeanor. Fans reported Picklo exposing “her bare breasts in a section full of people,” according to the criminal complaint. University police threatened to arrest Picklo several times, but she ignored them while holding a beer in one hand and a cellphone in the other. She told the Star-Tribune she was...

    President Obama told Peruvians Sunday night that America has often "fallen short of our ideals" of democracy, rule of law, a free press, an independent judiciary, free markets, and a social welfare system to help the disadvantaged. and there have been times when we have not observed some of the norms as well as we should and have been accused of hypocrisy here in Latin America. There have been times when countries have felt disrespected and on occasion have had cause for that. And there were teams when we haven't observed the values in our own country and have fallen...

    "You know, I think Jeb Bush is toast," I told one of my editors after Wednesday night's debate. "I kinda do too," he replied. "I'm just worried because that's what everyone else seems to think too." -SNIP- Bush received poor reviews for his debate performance from political commentators of all stripes (Republican, Democratic, partisan, nonpartisan, reporters, "data journalists"), many of whom also suggested that his campaign might soon be over. The straw poll1 we conducted among FiveThirtyEight writers and editors agreed; Bush's average grade was a C-, putting him at the bottom of the 10-candidate group. -SNIP- In the insurgent...

    Twenty-five Republicans rebelled against John Boehner (R-Ohio), who won a third term as Speaker on Tuesday. The 25 Republicans, including three freshmen, didn't coalesce around a single alternative candidate. Rep. Daniel Webster (R-Fla.), whose nomination for Speaker became public just minutes before the vote, attracted the most votes at 12. Meanwhile, the other two long-shot candidates, Reps. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) and Ted Yoho (R-Fla.) only received three and two votes each. Additionally, freshman Rep. Brian Babin (R-Texas) voted "present" rather than voting for anyone. And two Republican lawmakers voted for people who aren't even members of the House: Rep. Gary...

    When asked about presidential candidate Donald Trump's remarks on illegal immigrants from Mexico, South Carolina governor Nikki Haley told Meet the Press's Chuck Todd she understands Trump's "frustration" but that he needs to watch his "tone." Haley went on to say "we" all need to be respectful of each other and nix the "harsh" language. Offensive talk "hurts people," and it's "just not necessary."

    Hillary Clinton supporters: Donate $20.12 for 2012 challenge 1 hr 3 mins ago Supporters of Hillary Clinton are encouraging fellow fans to donate $20.12 Friday to signify support for a primary challenge to President Barack Obama in 2012. Clinton narrowly lost the Democratic nomination to Obama in 2008, and embittered supporters have plotted a comeback ever since. Recently, several Democrats have murmured regret about the nomination of Obama over Clinton, who they believe would have been a more strident proponent of Democratic policies.

    ( – Despite President Barack Obama’s vow to veto the Cut, Cap and Balance bill passed by the House of Representatives, Sen. Tom Coburn (R-Okla.) said he would bet a “Porterhouse steak” that the president would sign the legislation if it arrived at his desk. “It doesn’t matter what the polls are,” Coburn told reporters at the Capitol on Thursday. “We’ve got to fix our country, and this is the only viable plan right now that will do that. And I will bet you a Porterhouse steak that if it lands on his desk, he’ll sign this puppy.” White House...

    The U.S. Army said Monday that it was abandoning the beret, after a failed 10-year experiment. The black beret, which proved deeply unpopular with American soldiers, will be replaced by a patrol cap for everyday wear, U.S. Army spokesman Col. Tom Collins said. The move came after outgoing Army chief of staff, Gen. Martin Dempsey, asked the Army's sergeant major "to go out and talk to soldiers across the force and see what was on their minds," Collins told AFP. "One of the things that soldiers consistently brought up was the desire to wear the patrol cap as part of...

    What if one day you went to work and there was a meeting to discuss whether the project you were working on crossed the line into child pornography? You’d probably think you had ended up in the wrong room. And you’d be right. Last week, my colleague Brian Stelter reported that on Tuesday, the day after the pilot episode of “Skins” was shown on MTV, executives at the cable channel were frantically meeting to discuss whether the salacious teenage drama starring actors as young as 15 might violate federal child pornography statutes.

    Nearly 20 Democrats abandoned their party’s pick for speaker of the House, Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), a sign of their concerns about supporting the unpopular former speaker and of the difficulty she will have in marshaling her forces in legislative battles to come in the next two years. Pelosi brushed off the 18 votes for other lawmakers on Wednesday afternoon — 11 of them for North Carolina’s Heath Shuler — in a brief exchange with POLITICO. “We’re excited about the votes I got,” said the California Democrat, who handed over the speaker’s gavel to John Boehner of Ohio at...
