    The theme music from Harrison Ford's movie 'Air Force One' blared over loudspeakers in a rural Tennessee airport hangar, and minutes later a less presidential noise wafted over a hot mic. 'Get in the plane and go home. It's over there. Go home.' That was Donald Trump, the Republican presidential front-runner, telling his newest endorser Chris Christie in front of 12,000 people exactly where to go and how to get there. Christie had just sung The Donald's praises following the dramatic entrance of his plane in a stunt the campaign invented a month ago in Dubuque, Iowa. And more importantly,...

    Donald Trump on Monday night once again ratcheted up his attacks on Sen. Ted Cruz, calling his GOP presidential rival "sick." "This guy is sick. There's something wrong with this guy," Trump said Monday night as he slammed Cruz for the senator's campaign tactics, including the attack ads Cruz and his allies have run against Trump. Cruz's campaign has run several ads scrutinizing Trump's record on a variety of issues important to conservatives. Trump has repeatedly slammed Cruz since the Texas senator surged in the polls ahead of the Iowa caucuses and has since ramped up his attacks on him...

In an appearance on "Fox News Sunday," the real estate mogul said that since he's "extremely, extremely tough on immigration" the attackers wouldn't have been in position to commandeer U.S. flights. "So there's a good chance that those people would not have been in our country," Trump said. He took another shot at Jeb Bush for claiming that Bush's brother, the 43rd president, kept the nation safe. "I'm not blaming George Bush," Trump said. "But...

On Sunday and Monday, Trump has gone out of his way to trash Fiorina's candidacy, blasting her business record, her electoral prospects, and even how she sounds when she speaks. "I think that she's got a good line of pitter-patter. But when you listen for more than five minutes, you develop a tremendous headache," Trump said Monday morning on "Fox & Friends." Trump had a similar line during a Sunday interview on ABC's "This Week." "She's got a good pitter-patter," Trump observed, according to an ABC...

    Left-wingers are more likely to use swear words than their right-leaning counterparts, a study of thousands of Twitter accounts has suggested. While conservative-leaning individuals are, perhaps unsurprisingly, more likely to use religious terms such as God and psalm, those on the liberal end of the political spectrum are heavy users of f*** and s*** online. Researchers at Queen Mary University in London analyzed more than 10,000 Twitter users who follow either the Republican or Democrat party Twitter accounts.

Schultz apparently threw a tantrum and refused to appear on his last show.  In his place, Michael Eric Dyson gave what Mediaite calls an "understated" farewell. First and perhaps most importantly, Ed Schultz wasn’t even present to give his final MSNBC farewell — due to “pre-existing scheduling conflicts,” MSNBC told us.

    Asked about the several thousand protestors who gathered on Capitol Hill today to protest Democratic health care reform legislation, White House press secretary Robert Gibbs joked about one of the actors who was a featured speaker at the rally, saying, I'm sure there's a Jon Voight joke in here somewhere, given he was one of the featured speakers, butmy father always told me my mouth would get me in trouble, and I have a feeling if I acted on the line that I'd like to give you, I'm almost positive that it would. Voight spoke at the rally, decrying the...

    .SNIPARTnews has reported that the White House has quietly de-listed a painting by Alma W. Thomas that it chose last month, among some 45 pieces borrowed from several Washington museums, to decorate the private White House residence and the West and East Wings. Titled, Watusi (Hard Edge) from 1963, the work takes a Matisse collage and, as Holland Cotter wrote in The New York Times, praising the selection, shifts the pieces around, cools the colors down, and adds a title that refers to a Chubby Checker song. But through copying Matisse, Mr. Cotter added, she began to work out a...

    In his post on Dick Cheney's speech this week, Paul Mirengoff focused on Cheney's account of the Bush administration's reassessment of its strategy in Afghanistan. Paul wrote that Cheney's speech at the Center for Security Policy "blew the whistle on some egregious dishonesty by the Obama administration." Paul quoted this passage of Cheney's speech: Recently, President Obama's advisors have decided that it's easier to blame the Bush Administration than support our troops. This weekend they leveled a charge that cannot go unanswered.

    President Barack Obama urged Republicans to help clean up the mess the Bush administration left behind in comments at a Tuesday night fundraiser. Obama, speaking to donors to the Democratic National Committee (DNC), said he didnt have sympathy for those sitting on the sidelines and rooting for failure. He then embraced a new campaign by the DNC that invites Republicans to grab a mop and help clean up what Democrats say is a mess created by the Bush administration. I dont mind cleaning up the mess that some other folks made, thats what I signed up to do, Obama said....

    SPRINGFIELD, Mass. The tears tumbled, flooding his face and Michael Jordan had yet to march to the microphone at Symphony Hall.

Everything flashed before him, a legacy that hes fought with body and soul to never, ever let go into yesterday.

    A bulletin from President Obama: Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's fall in the State Department basement this week might have been caused by rival Richard Holbrooke long suspected of coveting the Secretary's title slicking the floor with WD-40. Obama said his first reaction to news that Clinton's fractured elbow would require surgery was to brace for yet another fiscal crisis. "Fortunately, the lawyers tell me Hillary's ready to settle," he quipped at Washington's annual Radio & Television Correspondents' Dinner Friday night. [Snip] Obama also joked about sleeping with NBC Nightly News anchor Brian Williams, who spent a much-ballyhooed...

Now the Daily Mail reports that Obama cheaped out on the traditional gift exchange, rustling up some DVDs in exchange for a thoughtful gift from Brown:
