  • 'Clinton the Musical' Looks Back, Just in Time for 2016 (Barf alert!)

    Hillary Clinton is expected to make her plans to run for president in 2016 official at any moment. And this week she's hitting the stage, with Bill by her side, for her debut in a new starring role, but not the one you think. These two Washington royals invite you to join them not for Hillary’s long-anticipated announcement, but instead to watch as they sing and dance their way through the drama of the infamously scandal-clad Clinton White House, laughing all the way. But don’t expect the real-life Hillary and Bill Clinton showing off their acting chops. In the new...

    Charting Course ^ | 12/4/14 | Steve Berman
    Yesterday, I published an open letter to Bill Cosby, in which I encouraged him to speak the truth.  I didn’t condemn the man as a rapist.  Sixteen women have done that.  Cosby’s response, over nearly 30 years of these accusations, which occur with the regularity of a drumbeat, has been to fight, litigate, settle, and mostly ignore them.  His PR machine and attorneys do a fine job of giving him value for the dollar. I have no argument with a longtime and loved celebrity striving to keep his image free from such smears, but the accusations are gaining traction.  NBC has...

    FULL TITLE: Michael Sam was dropped by the NFL because 'no one wants the distraction', claims Buffalo Bills star as gay football player tweets upbeat message Michael Sam is no longer attached to an NFL team and none of them appear to want to pick him up because his sexual orientation causes too much distraction, claims a Buffalo Bills star. Offensive lineman Eric Wood goes on, more specifically, to blame the media for focusing on the personal life of the NFL's first openly gay draft pick. 'Blame that on espn,' Wood tweeted in response to Sam's inability to find an...

    1 minute ago Obama’s certified organic night out Posted by CNN Political Unit Washington (CNN) - President Barack Obama went out to dinner Friday night with first lady Michelle Obama and senior aide Valerie Jarrett for a birthday dinner for Jarrett at a certified organic restaurant. The trio dined at Restaurant Nora in Washington’s Dupont Circle neighborhood. “The menu changes daily, offering a la carte items and a four-course chef’s tasting menu,” the restaurant’s website says. “The wine list presents over 100 exceptional wines from small producers, many of them using organically grown grapes and sustainable practices.” Founded in 1979,...

    Harrisburg Patriot News ^ | 2.8.13 | Charles Thompson
    One of Pennsylvania's most prominent citizens has been part of the Paterno family's efforts to clear the late Joe Paterno of responsibility for the Jerry Sandusky child sex abuse scandal at Penn State. The Paterno family is set to release its rebuttal to the Freeh Report on Sunday morning, starting with an appearance by the authors of their counter-attack on the ESPN news magazine show, "Outside the Lines." Former Gov. Dick Thornburgh will be prominent on that panel, giving it heft as a former U.S. Attorney General under Presidents Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush. Thornburgh's involvement in the Paterno's...

    The American Thinker ^ | May 11, 2010 | Greg Halvorson
    By now, anyone with a working knowledge of narcissism recognizes the pathological condition of the president. Even liberals concede that the man who sends thrills up Chris Mathews' leg is self-absorbed. It therefore makes sense that Elena Kagan, his Solicitor General, is the SCOTUS nominee. In 2005, at a Harvard luncheon, Ms. Kagan waxed eloquent on Obama. She'd had the "privilege" of attending the DNC National Convention the year before and had experienced rapture: "He opened his mouth, said a few words, and the place was mesmerized. You could hear a pin drop. In part, that is because of all...

    You knew it had to be coming: The worldwide fascination with Barack Obama now brings us The Art of Obama. This funky blog depicts art of the messiah riding...unicorns and whales...stenciled on cakes, even cubist Obama. The goofiest thing about it ain't the blog, it's the people who go to such creative lengths to either genuflect before The One or mock him (you can always put me in the later crowd).

    In the 1993 movie Jurassic Park, one human character tells another that a Tyrannosaurus rex can't see them if they don't move, even though the beast is right in front of them. Now, a scientist reports that T. rex had some of the best vision in animal history. This sensory prowess strengthens arguments for T. rex's role as predator instead of scavenger. Scientists had some evidence from measurements of T. rex skulls that the animal could see well. Recently, Kent A. Stevens of the University of Oregon in Eugene went further. He used facial models of seven types of dinosaurs...

    I recently moved to Vancouver, Canada and discovered this morning that there will be a huge pro-terrorist (Arafat) meeting at the Vancouver Public Library and they will talk about the injustices of "the wall" and other topics. I was wondering if anyone knew of any counter-demonstration oganizations here in Vancouver. Any help would be greatly appreciated. (I'm pretty sure there is not a Protest Warrior outfit up here in our multicultural splendor...)
