Read Maya Angelou’s tribute You did it. Thanks to your contributions over the weekend, including amazing matching efforts by HLF, which was joined by Birdie, you all gave Hillary the boost she needed. So many other Hillary supporters kicked in over the last days. It will make an enormous difference. Great job. But as you [...]

via Politico.com Hell has frozen over. Time has stopped. Up is down. Fox is “fair and balanced.” Sheesh, who would have believed it? At least that’s the case where Hillary Clinton is concerned, which has the Obama Democratic elite in a tizzy. What to do with their Freeze Fox Out campaign? To be clear, I [...]
From Wayne Barrett’s must read: … .. Similarly, all three of the House Democrats who endorsed Obama — Coleman Young II, Bert Johnson, and Aldo Vagnozzi — voted in favor of the bill to push the Michigan date forward. When Obama later took his name off the Michigan ballot, Young and Johnson became sponsors of [...]
Obama’s church is busy. Their geeks are on the job. They’re scrubbing their website of all things Louis Farrahkan, as well as Trumpet magazine, which got Wright in trouble recently. Poof! Like magic, gone. See Jake Tapper. He’s got the links. It’s the remaking of Obama’s story, starting with Rev. Wright. No doubt they’re either [...]
Here’s a clue. The blogger in question has a terminal case of Clinton Derangement Syndrome. I know, there are so many of them. Clinton has taken a lot of heat from Obama supporters, but particularly from the big Obama bloggers on her Iraq war vote. Never mind that Senator Obama’s speech in 2002 was greeted [...]
Via Think Progress. Dubya probably actually practiced for this one. Nice pitch, as these things go. Everyone has their priorities.
Ouch. Iraqi lawmakers traveled to the Iranian holy city of Qom over the weekend to win the support of the commander of Iran’s Qods brigades in persuading Shiite cleric Muqtada al Sadr to order his followers to stop military operations, members of the Iraqi parliament said. … .. There the Iraqi lawmakers held talks with [...]
IRAQ: Interesting Definition of a ‘Ceasefire’ bumped from afternoon via Juan Cole Meet our reality: U.S. special forces units working with Iraqi troops in Basra; Baghdad under indefinite curfew. Sadr calls for a “ceasefire.” Iran is all for it, because they want us to leave and all this violence doesn’t look good. However, as the [...]
It’s Been a Tough Primary Season image via–Many emails on this one.– Hmmmm…. Is this one for real? If so, Senator Obama’s aides were obviously engaged elsewhere. But if you’re going to pose for a photo, the least you could do… Oh, never mind. It’ been a tough primary all ’round. So without further ado, [...]
via IWillforHill The case for Clinton… Open letter from former admirals and generals supporting Clinton. This is particularly important to me given what’s now unraveling in Iraq. (Please click on that link; it’s Juan Cole’s assessment.) National security and foreign policy are the topics I research and study most (when not in a general election [...]
Obama had to finally admit that when it comes to John F. Kenney and his father, OOPS applies. Contrary to Obama’s claims in speeches in January at American University and in Selma last year, the Kennedy family did not provide the funding for a September 1959 airlift of 81 Kenyan students to the United States [...]
Philadelphia’s Mayor Nutter says what many Americans are thinking: “I think there’s no room for hate, and I could not sit and tolerate that kind of language, and especially over a very long period of time,” said Philadelphia’s newly elected mayor, Michael Nutter, in an interview with ABC News’ David Muir. Will someone please show [...]
Meet Johnathan Alter. First he told Hillary Clinton to bow out of the race before Ohio and Texas. Now he thinks the governorship of New York should be Clinton’s “consolation” prize. Thinking forward, you know, also again asking Clinton to bow out, this time after Pennsylvania: Under the scenario sketched out by the insiders, serving [...]
Dear Democratic Elite: Back Off cross-posted at Huffington Post This little missive is directed at Senator Leahy and the other elite Democratic party officials, including Speaker Pelosi, whom I have supported unflinchingly throughout her tenure, as well as the elite progressives, who are suggesting Hillary Clinton drop out of the race. This goes for the [...]

IN AN amazing interview with the Guardian on Sunday titled, appropriately, “Michael Douglas on Liberace, Cannes, cancer and cunnilingus,” the movie star does the biggest public service message for HPV and sexually transmitted diseases that’s been done in a generation. The Internet exploded with shock at what was taken as a revelation. It’s like thinking giving head to a man infected with HIV won’t leave its mark, too, though that’s more commonly talked about.
But your individual circumstances and mine should not hide the fact that there is an ideal and optimal family arrangement whether we in our own lives can meet it. – Erick Erickson, in “The Truth May Hurt, But Is Not Mean” AFTER BEING blasted for his patriarchal grunt, Erick Erickson now gets very defensive. How can you tell?
Ms Garraway, 46, is fronting a campaign to encourage young women to think about fertility and giving birth much younger than “her generation”. As part of the campaign, Ms Garraway spent a day being transformed into a heavily pregnant 70 year-old by Adrian Rigby, a prosthetic make-up artist, to “shock and provoke debate about how old is too old to have a baby”. [UK Telegraph] LOOKING at relationships, I find it telling that casual writers on the subject give marriage advice that hinges on bringing back the feminine mystique years and suggesting marrying younger would solve the problems that only better and smarter choices can conquer.
“Having mom as primary bread winner is bad for kids and bad for marriage.” – Erick Erickson IT HAS become a conservative chant lately, the latest from Erick Erickson. “War on men” from Suzanne Venker, Megan McArdle saying women should marry younger, they’re all attempting to resurrect Freud’s biology is destiny.
THE 21st century world offers ways to tweak your appearance, or alter it altogether, with women finally able to combat directly the comparison that’s always been around. Men look distinguished as they age, while women look old, unattractive, or to use Rush Limbaugh’s favorite comment, who wants to look at a woman with wrinkles? The 2012 plastic surgery statistics are out and the American Society of Plastic Surgery tells the story.
The real question about Hillary is this: When people take a new look at her in the coming years, will they see the past or the future — Mrs. Clinton or Madam President? – Maureen Dowd IT’S A classic front page from Huffington Post, coupled with a post by Jason Linkins, which details what’s been going on.
Visit NBCNews.com for breaking news, world news, and news about the economy “Here’s what nobody is telling you: Find a husband on campus before you graduate. Yes, I went there.
“Norma Rae is a survivor and for the first time in her life she’s got a chance to become something more… a winner.” – Promo for “Norma Rae” CRITICS like Anne-Marie Slaughter, but especially Maureen I-Love-My-Pearls Dowd, and others [most of whom didn't read the book or do their homework] who are blaming Sheryl Sandberg for being a billionaire Ivy League graduate, while accusing her of letting corporations and government off the hook, are missing a major point.
Great sex doesn’t always just happen. Sometimes, it takes a little planning, especially if — like many Americans — you’ve been in a bit of a sex rut. Do some prep work by turning your bedroom into a love nest: Make the bed (with new, or at least clean, sheets), tidy up, light a candle or two, and queue up a sexy playlist on your iPod.
“You Don’t Own Me” PSA -Official from You Don't Own Me on Vimeo. WHO DOESN’T know the song “You Don’t Own Me,” sung by Leslie Gore? The movie First Wives Club helped to reignite the relevancy of the song.
“Last night I interviewed Jill Stein the presidential candidate for the Green Party on this show. And I confess right now, I should have asked her to just get out of the race.” – Jennifer Granholm, “The War Room” [Current TV] THE ARGUMENT Jennifer Granholm makes above is a tactic that no longer fits the times.
“With that drum magazine, he could have gotten off 50, 60 rounds, even if it was semiautomatic, within one minute,” Chief Oates said. [New York Times] IN THE GAPING MAW of our leadership vacuum stands Aurora Police Chief Daniel Oates, whose resolve, vulnerability and humility inside the vortex of a man made hell revealed what nobody in Congress or either political party has shown in decades. Leadership without regard to anything but his own duty to the people, which included the cops in the eye of volcanic carnage.
*updated below* So much for keep calm and carry on, what Joe Scarborough proclaims to be his motto. It was the weirdest one-on-one back and forth with a high profile talking head imaginable. It makes high school look mature.
**UPDATED** Would we be any worse off with Stephen Colbert as president? I doubt it. Politifact has watched the video “(repeatedly!
Despite rising public concern about the federal budget deficit, Americans favor keeping Social Security and Medicare benefits as they are rather than taking steps to reduce the budget deficit (by 60% vs. 32%). – Public Wants Changes in Entitlements, Not Changes in Benefits This is starting early, so it’s time to revisit the facts.
“If we can prove that a biological attack originated in a country that attacked us, then all bets are off.” – Sect. Hillary Clinton Women can do it, too.
The interview with Obama by George Stephanopoulos wasn’t nearly as contentious as the interview with the Edwardses. No Republican talking points from Stephanopoulos yesterday, like when he accused Edwards of abandoning the troops with this beauty: “Do you think the Democrats should be saddled with the idea of completely cutting off funding for the troops?” Or this one: “You know, a lot of Democrats still in the Senate think that your position here is cynical political theater.
