Forget the sweet, bubbly Elle Woods character in Legally Blonde. One suspects that the smug, vulgar Sarah Peterson Herr hews much closer to the norm of today´s twenty-something female attorney. Before her termination on Monday, Herr clerked for the Honorable Christel E. Marquardt, judge of the Kansas Court of Appeals. She was fired for sending a series of nasty tweets while sitting in last week on an ethics hearing for former Kansas attorney general, Phill Kline. If there is a pro-life Hall of Fame, Kline deserves his own display case. First as attorney general of Kansas and then as the

Douglas Kennedy, a son of the late Sen. Robert F. Kennedy, was acquitted Tuesday of child endangerment and harassment charges stemming from a scuffle in a hospital maternity ward. Kennedy had tried in January to take his newborn son from Northern Westchester Hospital in Mount Kisco. He said he just wanted the 2-day-old boy, Anthony Boru Kennedy, to get some fresh air. However, several nurses objected, saying his request would violate hospital policy. Kennedy tried to leave anyway, and two nurses claimed he hurt them as they blocked his way.

An Obama administration official reportedly attended a Monday meeting with Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) officials to work on banning any speech that "associates Islam or Islamists to violence." The official was U.S. Consul General in Jeddah Anne Casper, and the meeting took place in Saudi Arabia. It apparently matters not that "Islamic terrorists have carried out over 19,000 deadly attacks in the name of Islam since the 9-11 attacks in New York," Washington DC, and Pennsylvania. The meeting was advertised as a "Symposium on Defamation of Islam."



97 Republicans Tell Obama

Ninety-seven members of Congress, led by Jeff Duncan (R –SC), are leading the charge against Barack Obama’s reputed choice of Ambassador Susan Rice to be Secretary of State. They have written a letter strongly opposing the idea of her nomination because of her lies about the Benghazi attack, and aver that because she misled the American public, her actions give the world, friends and enemies of the U.S. reason to question America’s commitment and credibility. The Congressmen don’t stop there; they charge Obama’s administration with denying Congress critical information necessary

President Obama’s most solid strongholds are suffering from economic disaster under his presidency, according to new reports. {Snip) Assistant UM Professor of Social Work Kristen Seefeldt stated, according to local reports, that “researchers were shocked by the high levels of food insecurity, with nearly 28 percent of people interviewed did not have stable, reliable access to food or were forced to change their eating habits for financial reasons.” Some people, says Seefeldt, are skipping meals; that included many people with a job.

Hillary Clinton has said that she will make sleep, exercise and relaxing her priorities over the coming year. But the promise of some down-time seems to have already had a positive effect as she bids farewell to her four-year term as Secretary of State. Mrs Clinton, 65, looked on fine form in Myanmar today as she joined President Obama in a historic meeting with the country´s opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi. Though she looked elegant and polished in a crisp white blazer, navy pants and a statement silver beaded neckpiece, it was the broad smile

Six men accused of being ´Israeli spies´ were dragged through the streets of Gaza City and executed in front of a chanting mob today as Israel warned Palestinians to evacuate some areas of the territory in apparent preparation for a ground invasion. Witnesses said the six were taken to an intersection in the north of the city where they were summarily shot for providing intelligence that helped Israel pinpoint key figures in Hamas and the Islamic Jihad targeted by their warplanes. The names of the men are said to have been scrawled on the road after they had been questioned

It’s an ill wind that blows nobody good, and that evil wind from the Middle East comes just when Barack Obama needs a distraction most. (snip) The president himself is in Southeast Asia, mispronouncing the names of everyone he meets, and trying to play kissyface with Aung San Suu Kyi, the heroic woman who led the struggle to free Burma from the grip of evil generals. In the photographs, the lady is trying to keep her mouth out of the way of Mr. Obama’s kissing equipment. The president was just being friendly, but she doesn’t look as if she’s enjoying herself.

The Mandate To Raise
Taxes on the “Rich”

Within days of winning the election, President Obama announced that his victory gave him a mandate to raise taxes on the "rich." Come again? This was a two-and-a-half-point election. It reflected a painfully divided electorate. The only mandate I saw was to unite a divided country. I voted for Obama. I voted for him because I know how hard it is to buy health insurance for a single person with even a minor pre-existing condition. In the case of my nanny/housekeeper/dear friend, it was gastritis. Thank God for Kaiser, which sold me the insurance that some years later saved

The voice of Elmo, Kevin Clash, resigned today amid new allegations of sexual misconduct with underaged boys, “Sesame Street” producers and the famed puppeteer said. Since last week, two young men have accused Clash of picking them up for underaged sex. Clash was granted a leave of absence last week to fight accusations made by Sheldon Stephens, 24, of Harrisburg, Pa. But Clash quit today, after a lawsuit was filed by Cecil Singleton, who claims he was just 15 when the Elmo voice had sex with him in 1993.

David Nussbaum, the Chief Executive of WWF-UK, is very cross with the Prime Minister. (H/T Eureferendum) "His lack of vocal leadership on climate change and energy is jeopardising some of the most promising green shoots of recovery. The UK needs significant investment in green infrastructure, yet he is letting a rogue pack within his party play politics with such an important issue." We´ve been hearing a lot of this sort of thing from green activist groups recently.

The United States expressed deep concern on Wednesday for a U.S. citizen held in South Sudan on a kidnap charge but who, his wife says, is victim of an extortion attempt by security officials. Elton Mark McCabe was arrested in the east African country last month on charges of kidnapping an Indian businessman for a $5 million ransom.

Move over, adulterous generals. It might be time to make way for a new sexual rats´nest – at America´s top financial police agency, the SEC. In a salacious 77-page complaint that reads like Penthouse Forum meets The Insider meets the Keystone Kops, one David Weber, the former chief investigator for the SEC Inspector General´s office, accuses the SEC of retaliating against Weber for coming forward as a whistleblower. According to this lawsuit, Weber was made a target of intramural intrigues at the agency (which has a history of such retaliation) after he came forward

Who would have ever thought it? Underneath it all, the tough-guy governor and former prosecutor who doesn’t scruple at angrily lecturing teachers, parents, taxpayers, reporters and anyone else who dares to question his policies or motives is a sensitive soul who is as needy of love and understanding as a guest on “Oprah.” After years in the public eye spent flipping off his detractors and daring them to try and do something about it, Chris Christie now needs a hug. That’s the upshot of an unintentionally hilarious analysis published today in the New York Times,



The Nasty GOP?

‘The Republican brand is deeply damaged” was a painfully common assessment after the election. A lot of Republicans were eager to blame the party’s thoroughly lousy performance on the presidential nominee, but there is considerable evidence that the unpopularity goes well beyond that: Romney won more votes than GOP Senate candidates in almost all of the swing states — and in some fairly red states, including Arizona, Montana, Nebraska, and North Dakota. Conservative ideas, though, won in distinctly Democratic-leaning states once the word “Republican” was no longer associated with them. In Michigan, where Obama won handily,

Hotels and Hassles

Few things can make you appreciate home like staying in a hotel. This includes not only low-budget, bare bones hotels but also sweepingly large and ornate luxury hotels. What many hotels seem to have in common are needless hassles. Since most people who stay in hotels do so while traveling, and stay only a few days in a given hotel, you might think that those who run hotels would want to make it easy for someone who arrives a little tired (or a lot tired) from traveling to use the various devices they find in their hotel room.

Hamilton — Hamilton Mayor John Bencivengo was convicted today of accepting $12,400 in bribes from a health insurance broker in exchange for his influence over a lucrative school board contract. The verdict of guilty on all counts came after four and a half hours of deliberations by jurors at the federal courthouse in Trenton. Bencivengo, 58 faces up to 20 years in prison when he is sentenced on the bribery and extortion counts. The corruption trial hinged on the testimony of Marliese Ljuba, a former health insurance broker for Vineland-based Allen Associates who became an FBI cooperating witness

Adhering to longstanding administration policy of never criticizing the Islamist regime in Turkey, she refused. “You’re not telling us anything,” Lee said. “When the leaders of Turkey come out and say that Israel is engaged in acts of terrorism and you refuse to say that you don’t agree with that — or maybe you do agree with it —

The Obama administration issued new rules Tuesday that require insurance companies to cover people with preexisting conditions — one of the most popular provisions of President Obama’s healthcare law. The Health and Human Services Department also began to implement other popular, but expensive, parts of the Affordable Care Act. Regulations released Tuesday will prohibit insurers from charging women a higher premium than men, and will require plans in every state to cover certain services.

Clark — The cost of a large-scale police search for a Clark teen who faked her own kidnapping will not be passed on to her family, the mayor of the town said. Township officials never put a dollar figure on their hunt for 16-year-old Kara Alongi, who became a global sensation after tweeting in September that someone was in her house. But Mayor Sal Bonaccorso said the amount, which includes overtime for police officers, was not "exorbitant" and that there was no need to burden the girl’s parents.

Warren Rudman, who died overnight Tuesday, was a “sledgehammer” senator who packed a lot into just two terms in the Capitol. Swept in by the Reagan landslide in 1980, the New Hampshire Republican stole a step on his classmates by taking office weeks before the new Congress had convened and never seemed to stop in the ensuing 12 years. He was lawyer smart with a mix of bombast and moxie that ingratiated him with older Senate colleagues, while also making headlines with his famous deficit-reduction schemes and leadership of the Iran-Contra and Keating Five investigations.

Appearing on Saturday´s NBC Today, CNBC chief Washington correspondent John Harwood completely dismissed the scandal surrounding the Benghazi terrorist attack as merely leftover campaign politics: "...what we´re seeing in the Petraeus scandal and the Benghazi issue being prolonged is an extension of some of the conflict and the bitterness that we had during the election campaign."
