    Draft-dodger Donald Trump once said that the danger he faced from getting sexually transmitted diseases was his own “personal Vietnam.” In a 1997 interview with shock jock Howard Stern, Trump talked about how he had been “lucky” not to have contracted diseases when he was sleeping around. “I’ve been so lucky in terms of that whole world. It is a dangerous world out there. It’s scary, like Vietnam. Sort of like the Vietnam-era,” Trump said in a video that resurfaced Tuesday on Buzzfeed, “It is my personal Vietnam. I feel like a great and very brave soldier.”

    Weve been talking about the enthusiasm problem that the Democrats are facing. While Romney/Ryan events turn away thousands, Democratic events are smaller, and shrinking by the day. The latest example comes from the Peoples Republic of Massachusetts, where Elizabeth Warren held a rally, and no one seemed to show up.

    Wu-hoo! Hey, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz and Nancy Pelosi, Im over here! When last I wrote about the bizarre behavior of Democrat Rep. David Wu of Oregon, it was February of this year. I said he needed a Democrat leadership intervention after he freaked out his staff, posed in the above costume obtained by Willamette Week, and engaged in other inexplicable antics. As I noted, Wus behavior has caused Capitol Hill concern dating back to 2003. But none of the swamp-draining Democrat leaders bothered to do anything about it. And Wu went on a national media tour asserting he can continue to...

    The only American president to publicly support Middle Eastern terrorism has completed a schmooze fest with a communist dictator in a country that appears on the U.S. State Departments list of terrorist-sponsoring nations. It marks the latest humanitarian mission for Jimmy Carter, who just a few years ago became the only American commander-in-chief to participate in a hug fest with the head of the worlds leading Middle Eastern terrorist group. During that highly-publicized Syrian jaunt, Carter met with Hamas Leader Khaled Meshal who runs his violent operation from Damascus to avoid being arrested by the Israeli government. The sophisticated...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi today weighed in on the heated debate over the proposed Islamic community center in Manhattan, saying that New Yorkers should be left to decide on what she called a "zoning issue." Asked by The Chronicle what her position was on the community center, which includes a prayer space that some opponents are referring to as the "ground zero mosque," Pelosi, D-San Francisco, said that she is leaving the issue to her colleagues in New York. And when Doug Sovern of KCBS asked a follow-up question, Pelosi criticized those who are trying to use the issue for...

    CHICAGO (AP) A political newcomer who won the Democratic nomination for Illinois lieutenant governor said Thursday he has no intention of leaving the race after details emerged about his arrest for allegedly holding a knife to his former girlfriends throat. Scott Lee Cohen struck a defiant tone even after running mate Gov. Pat Quinn predicted he would have to leave the race. Cohen said people should make up their minds about him after all the facts come to light. There are questions, and I will provide all answers honestly and openly, he said in a statement.

    I voted Democrat because I love the fact that I can now marry whatever I want. I've decided to marry my horse. I voted Democrat because I believe oil companies' profits of 4% on a gallon of gas are obscene but the government taxing the same gallon of gas at 15% isn't. I voted Democrat because I believe the government will do a better job of spending the money I earn than I would. I voted Democrat because freedom of speech is fine as long as nobody is offended by it. I voted Democrat because when we pull out of...

    PORTLAND, Ore. -- Portland police officers have asked for an apology after they said organizers of a Barack Obama rally set up Porta-Potties on a memorial honoring fallen officers. Earlier this month, 75,000 people gathered in Waterfront Park in downtown Portland to hear Obama speak at a pre-primary rally. Officer Thomas Brennan, a seven-year veteran with the Portland Police Bureau, said he was happy to help at the rally after being called in on his day off. "On short notice, a lot of people had to cancel trips. But they were glad to do it," Brennan said. "It was very...

    Associated Press HARRISBURG, Pa. --Gov. Ed Rendell, despite pressure from gun dealers, decided Tuesday not to delay a database upgrade that will halt Pennsylvania firearms sales for three days. The Democratic governor said the shutdown to allow work on the criminal history database would last one day less than previously announced. The Pennsylvania Instant Check System will be down from 6 p.m. Sunday and return to operation at 6 p.m. Sept. 5. "It is clear that there will never be an ideal time to temporarily shut down the system so we can make changes necessary to ensure the system continues...

    Frustrated by a legislative session that left many key issues hanging, Gov. Eliot Spitzer said Tuesday that he could govern without lawmakers. Downplaying the importance of passing laws, the freshman governor said he favored regulatory changes and executive orders to run the state -- neither of which require prior approval by the legislature. The Democratic governor repeated his criticism of a decision by the Senate's Republican majority to go home June 21, the official end of the six-month session, though many bills remain to be considered.

    WASHINGTON Between Democratic Sen. Joe Lieberman's position that the Bush plan in Iraq is working and progress is being made and Rep. John Murtha's call for a speedy withdrawal, a vast number of differences plague Democrats about the war in Iraq. Those differences pose a serious dilemma for one Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, whose presidential ambitions could impact her position on Iraq. Clinton is now scrambling to recast her pro-war image in the face of growing hostility from the anti-war left. "Hillary does have an Iraq problem. Democrats hate the Iraq war and she's been pretty supportive of the...

    There's no better example of that apathy or appeasement in Detroit politics than in the apparent acceptance of city Clerk Jackie Currie's continued antics. Currie has spent a lot of time in court these days defending an out-of-control city election system ripe for abuse and corruption. In recent days we've learned that Currie employs a group of 50 "ambassadors" who round up between 4,500 and 8,000 absentee ballots -- and apparently break a variety of state election laws in the process. According to media reports, Currie's assistants have secured absentee ballots from mentally incapacitated people who have no idea who's...

    CLEVELAND -- Former Houston and Harris County official Oliver Spellman pleaded guilty today to bribery charges filed just last week, saying he accepted $2,000 to influence government contracts while serving as chief of staff to former Mayor Lee Brown. "I took money from an individual in return for favor in winning government contracts," Spellman told U.S. District Judge James Gwin of Cleveland. He said he took the bribe in July 2002. Although neither he nor the criminal information document filed last week named the person who paid the bribe, other court documents indicate it was well-connected Cleveland businessman Nate Gray....

    1970's songbird Linda Ronstadt, best known for her torch song-style and mellow ballads, is working overtime these days trying to persuade her fellow Arizonans that it's time to dump President Bush "right away." In an interview broadcast on Saturday, Ronstadt was in the middle of explaining to WABC Radio's Mark Simone why she prefers living in Arizona to Los Angeles or New York, when she added one caveat. "The politics are very conservative here and I'm not conservative. I'm having a hard time sometimes convincing people that we need to vote for a new president," she offered. When Simone begged...
