And unlike Donald Trump, who has been quite open about his own donations for business reasons, Fiorina has tried to convey the exact opposite impression, as in her first debate appearance in August, when, looking around at her fellow candidates on the “second tier,” Fiorina went after Trump with this line: I didn’t get a phone call from Bill Clinton before I jumped in the race.

It doesn’t matter that the absurd, the grossly inaccurate and the just plain stupid easily can be eliminated. It is what it is. And that’s it. There will be no deviation from, let alone elimination of, the ridiculous, no matter how self-evident.

    Jackie Dueitt's daughter is afraid to brush her hair. The 10-year-old girl is scared she will accidentally hit the knot on the back of her head. The Orange youngster was hurt on Friday outside a Beaumont store when a teen on a bicycle allegedly rode by her, let out a string of profanities and struck her on the head. Dueitt believes her daughter is the victim of the "knockout game," a violent assault in which the objective is to knock someone out with a single punch. "I think they were trying to [knock her out]," Dueitt said. The "knockout game"...

    A pregnant woman was sucker-punched in the back of the head Thursday afternoon — and may be the latest victim of the creepy “knockout game,” law enforcement sources said.

  • 'War on whites'? No way

    U.S. Rep. Mo Brooks, R-Ala., claims liberals are waging a "war on whites." If so, Barack Obama must be at war with himself. That's how goofy Brooks' logic sounds. But he's not nuts. It is an old reflex, when cornered in politics, to lash back with the same charge others have leveled at you — or, put another way, to project your own flaws onto other people. What's sad about Brooks' claim is his feeble attempt to play the white victim card, plucking the strings of white nationalism, just to have his way with the nation's immigration policy.

    At this point, you really have to wonder: Is it still news when a Republican says something asinine? On the off chance it is, let us spend a few moments pondering the strange case of Alabama Rep. Mo Brooks, who said last week that the Democratic Party is waging a "War on Whites." Yeah, he actually said that. You can look it up if you want. Mr. Brooks was responding to radio talk show host Laura Ingraham, who had asked him to comment on a remark from National Journal columnist Ron Fournier to the effect that the GOP cannot continue to be competitive in national elections if it...

    A grieving Bronx family is stunned that the teen accused of sucker-punching their father and husband is being charged with a misdemeanor that could result in the suspect doing less than a year in jail. Ildefonso Romero Jr. died days after a teenage boy allegedly sucker-punched him outside his home on Thieriot Avenue in Soundview on June 21. Witnesses said Romero had been protecting a girl from local teens who were apparently causing trouble in the street, and one of the teens punched Romero. Romero fell and hit his head on the curb, and his son found him unconscious on...

    People, like Obama and the race-baiting reverends, are in part to blame for the Black on White violence of the Knockout Game The race riots have begun. The Black Panthers have gotten their wish. Racist violence in order to create even more division has begun. . . by design. Barack Obama is at the center of the blame. He understands that culture is politics, division creates crisis, and during times of crisis the government can do things that the citizens would not normally allow them to do.

But what should have been a routine errand quickly turned into a harrowing encounter with a group of teenagers who left him bloody and battered.
