    Maher said, “The people of Idaho, Wyoming, Arkansas, Oklahoma, West Virginia, Kentucky, I know they’re Republican, mostly, but they’re human, right? These are human beings? What the f*ck does it take, in this country, to have being a human being supersede being a Republican?” After former Senator Bob Kerrey (D-NE) stated that there are good people who are supporting Trump, Maher asked, “Can you at this point?” After Kerrey argued that you could, Maher stated, “I don’t get that.” He added, “If the basket fits. Well, if you’re deplorable — I mean, if you have deplorable beliefs, you’re deplorable.”

    The Liberal Agenda: On the heels of Sunday's "People's Climate Change" march came Monday's "Flood Wall Street" demonstration, starring limousine liberal darling Naomi Klein. So who is Klein, and why is she such a hot ticket? Not since the 1980s, when Daniel Ortega, Nicaragua's Marxist dictator, bought $3,000 sunglasses on Fifth Avenue during a U.N. General Assembly have we seen such a confluence of free-market hate and consumer hog-wallow. But the leaders of the Climate Change March and the "Flood Wall Street" Occupy reunion put left-wing hypocrisy on full display this week in their loathing for capitalism and all-too-eager enjoyment...

    Naomi Klein is by all accounts a wonderful person – warm, low-key, modest, committed and enormously hard-working. She also looks terrific in a crisp white shirt, which is what she wore for a recent photo shoot for Vogue. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. Vogue is interested in fashionable intellectuals, and right now there’s no intellectual more fashionable than Ms. Klein. She told Vogue that her new book, This Changes Everything, is “a book about climate change for people who don’t read books about climate change.”

    If you were bestowed the honor to perform at a presidential inauguration, wouldn't you want your parents in attendance regardless of their political beliefs? Pop diva Katy Perry doesn't think so, for she told Marie Claire in an interview published Monday that because her parents are Republicans that didn't vote for Barack Obama, they couldn't watch her perform at his inauguration in January: Perry - My parents are Republicans, and I'm not. They didn't vote for Obama, but when I was asked to sing at the inauguration, they were like, 'We can come.' And I was like, 'No, you can't....

    Mark Wahlberg quickly apologized Wednesday for claiming he would have subdued the 9/11 hijackers. The "Contraband" star said that had he been on hijacked flight United 93 on Sept. 11, 2001, as originally scheduled, it wouldn't have crashed into a field in Pennsylvania. Wahlberg was scheduled to fly from New York to Boston on the morning of Sept. 11 on the flight that was hijacked by Al Qaeda terrorists. But he had a change of plans before the fateful date.

    A week-old Wall St. protest got a little star power Tuesday in the form of activist actress Susan Sarandon. "I'm just here to be educated," the "Bull Durham" star said as some of the young demonstrators in the crowd asked each other, "Who is she?" Sarandon, 64, stopped by the Occupy Wall Street encampment in Zuccotti Park on her way to catch a flight to Italy. The protesters peppered her with questions about climate change, consumerism and the economy. "It helps to focus on one thing to be accomplished," she advised. "Is everyone here registered to vote?

    A rich former Google executive pleaded with Barack Obama to raise his taxes Monday, boosting the US leader's push to get well off Americans to bankroll his $447 billion jobs plan. Obama stormed through the American west on a three-day tour devoted to hammering Republicans and piling up cash for his 2012 reelection bid, which is overshadowed by 9.1 percent unemployment and a wobbling economy. Former Google brand manager Doug Edwards became an instant media sensation when he joined billionaire investor Warren Buffett in calling for those who had done well in America to do more to help the struggling...

The economic downturn, moreover, Obama recently told reporters, “is going to get worse.” As far as the President-elect is concerned, however, these economic realities for regular folks don’t apply to him. Obama, his wife, and his children, as well as leftist apparatchiks, have rented three mansions on the beach in Hawaii....

But the punishment did not fit the crime. The letter he wrote Nicole seems especially cold: "I have not emotionally or legally adopted you as a grandchild, nor have the rest of my family adopted you as a niece or a cousin," the magazine quotes the letter as saying. "He signed the letter 'Warren'."

A memo sent to news organizations on Tuesday by the Obama campaign says credentials will cost $715 to $1,815, depending on whether electrical and phone lines are needed and whether an indoor or outdoor seat is requested for the event, which is expected to be held outside the evening of Nov. 4 in Grant Park.

    Hoping a new attorney general will be more sympathetic to their cause, John Walker Lindh's parents again asked the White House to commute the sentence of the Marin County man who fought in Afghanistan for the Taliban. The family filed a petition today asking that Lindh's 20-year sentence be commuted. Lindh pleaded guilty in 2002 to providing services to the Taliban and carrying explosives during a felony. His attorneys first applied for a commutation in 2004, and have regularly beseeched the government since then to shorten Lindh's sentence.

The United States was sucked in by "crass manipulation" over the moves towards the invasion of Iraq, the former US vice president turned environmental campaigner told British newspaper The Guardian. And Gore, who is repeatedly asked if he will run for office again, said he did not have the skills it takes to get elected as US president -- though he admitted there was no job in the world...

But his really secret weapon is one that his fellow liberals prefer not to mention out loud: Mr. Lamont could finance his own campaign. Thanks to campaign funding limits, most political neophytes have a better chance of affording a home in Mr. Lamont's swanky town of Greenwich, Conn., than they do of raising enough money to be competitive against an incumbent of the same party.

    When the news media write about Ned Lamont, they almost universally call him a "Greenwich businessman." Were he a Republican, they would brand him a "Republican multimillionaire," which is journalistic code for "conservative, hard-hearted, money-grubbing skinflint." Mr. Lamont is worth about $200 million, less the $3 million he put into his campaign to take the Democratic Senate nomination from incumbent Joseph I. Lieberman. Mr. Lamont's tax return reveals he made $2.8 million in 2005, including $546,044 in salary and more than $1.7 million in capital gains. But the most telling detail -- one not widely reported -- about the man...

Negotiators in the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate agreed late on Thursday to give Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney the power to block a plan by Cape Wind Associates LLC to put 130 giant wind turbines near the resort islands of Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket.

    There is a rich irony in watching Senator Ted Kennedy join forces with Representative Dan Young of Alaska to stop a windmill power-generating project in Nantucket Sound. Rep. Young –conservative Republican and chair of the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee – often opposes environmental proposals. His ranking from the League of Conservation Voters is zero. Mr. Kennedy’s ranking is 95 percent.

    Taxing the estates of wealthy Washingtonians to provide essential services to the state "is a very sensible, very socially responsible thing to do," William H. Gates Sr. said yesterday. Gates, the father of Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates and co-chairman of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, was joined by Democratic lawmakers and others who support restoring Washington's estate tax, which was overturned last month by the state Supreme Court. "This is not a tax on wealthy people. It's a tax on the grateful heirs of wealthy people," he said. "It's a tax on what's left after having lived ... a...

    Blue-collar General Electric workers in Lynn have launched a campaign to support a planned Nantucket Sound wind farm project vehemently opposed by many of the rich and famous residents of Cape Cod and the islands. Leaders of the IUE-CWA Local 201, which represents 2,500 workers at GE's Riverworks plant, are passing out petitions and meeting with lawmakers in an effort to promote wind energy and possibly create hundreds of manufacturing jobs in Lynn. GE, via its wind-energy unit, is in line to land the more-than-$200 million contract to build the 130 giant wind turbines for the proposed project, spearheaded by...

    The American Enterprise ^ | October-November 2004 | Karl Zinsmeister
    Democrats: the party of the little guy. Republicans: the party of the wealthy. Those images of America's two major political wings have been frozen for generations. The stereotypes were always a little off, incomplete, exaggerated. (Can you say Adlai Stevenson?) But like most stereotypes, they reflected rough truths. No more. Starting in the 1960s and '70s, whole blocs of "little guys"--ethnics, rural residents, evangelicals, cops, construction workers, homemakers, military veterans--began moving into the Republican column. And big chunks of America's rich elite--financiers, academics, heiresses, media barons, software millionaires, entertainers--drifted into the Democratic Party. The extent to which the parties have...
