Monica Lewinsky is 100% right. The internet can be a brutal, unforgiving colosseum of rage, hatred and vile, disgusting abuse. I speak as something of an expert in this area given that I was recently reported to be the most abused public figure on Twitter in Britain. But the kind of nonsense I have to put up with – someone recently tweeted my eldest son to inform him that he hoped I was soon beheaded – pales into insignificance compared to the abhorrent misogyny, sexism and often criminal insults (threats to rape etc) that high profile women have to endure.

Via Gabe Malor, not only would (i.e. will) Abbott’s wife be the first Latina first lady of Texas, Abbott himself likes to stress that fact when he introduces her at rallies. Dave Weigel tweets that Mrs. Abbott is featured on campaign billboards with her husband across the state. Her mother’s picture has also made it onto Abbott 2014 billboards to assure fellow Latinos that “Texas will love having him as governor.” It’s no secret, in other words, that he and his wife are of different races. On the contrary, it’s a message broadcast repeatedly by the Abbott campaign itself to appeal

Amber Vinson, the second nurse in Dallas to contract the Ebola virus, has retained a high-profile attorney, her family said in a statement. In the statement, obtained by CBS affiliate WOIO in Cleveland, the family said they "are troubled by some of the negative public comments and media coverage that mischaracterize Amber and her actions." "Suggestions that she ignored any of the physician and government-provided protocols recommended to her are patently untrue and hurtful. In the interest of Amber and our family, we have retained esteemed attorney Billy Martin to provide us with legal counsel during this unfortunate and troubling time," the

This is featured on Drudge at the moment:(Snip for graphic)The link goes to this Reuters story: President Barack Obama made a rare appearance on the campaign trail on Sunday with a rally to support the Democratic candidate for governor in Maryland, but early departures of crowd members while he spoke underscored his continuing unpopularity. When liberal news outlets talk about Obama in such blunt terms, things are grim. More: Most candidates from his party have been wary of appearing with him during their election races because of his sagging popularity. … A steady stream of people walked out of the auditorium while he spoke,

Head on over to the website for SarahPAC, and you will be immediately asked for contributions to help “reverse Obama’s destructive policies” by sending “real conservatives to fix them.” But according to a new report, former Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin’s political action committee has only doled out 5 percent of the money she raised to actual candidates for office this year. Here is what OpenSecrets.org reported about SarahPAC’s latest FEC filings: For the two-year 2014 cycle, the former Alaska governor’s PAC, a vehicle that helps her stay in the game amid talk that she may run in the 2016 presidential contest,

VATICAN CITY — Pope Francis on Sunday, as he beatified Pope Paul VI who implemented the Second Vatican Council´s vast changes, called on the church to adapt to "changing conditions of society." His remarks took on added meaning as the bishops ended a two-week conference by rejecting landmark wording that would soften the church´s stance toward homosexuality and divorce. "God is not afraid of new things," Francis pointedly said during the beatification Mass. Whether the document issued Saturday by the bishops is viewed as a setback for the pope, the conference did show the church can discuss difficult topics — such as the

The Democrat mantra that voting fraud is rare takes another blow today with the stunning story of a GOP candidate unable to vote for himself in Cook County Illinois. The Illinois Political Review reports: Admitting his confidence in Cook County ballot integrity is shaken, State Representative Candidate Jim Moynihan (R-56), was shocked today when he tried to cast a vote for himself and the voting machine cast it for his opponent instead. “While early voting at the Schaumburg Public Library today, I tried to cast a vote for myself and instead it cast the vote for my opponent,” said Moynihan.

President Obama does not want to be a Supreme Court justice. He calls it "too monastic" for his own personality. Besides, in an interview with the New Yorker, President Obama acknowledges that he needs to get out of the "bubble" after what will be eight years as president of the United States. “I love the law, intellectually,” the president tell the New Yorker, which says he sounds "tempted" at the idea of being on the Court. “I love nutting out these problems, wrestling with these arguments. I love teaching. I miss the classroom and engaging with students. But I think being

As a Vatican assembly on the family came to a close on Saturday, bishops ditched a document believed to signal a major shift in how the Church views gays and remarried Catholics, thus rejecting the vision of Pope Francis to chart a more ecumenical approach to ministering to Catholics around the globe. So sharply divided were the bishops that they could not even approve a watered-down version of the text that would provide ministering to homosexuals. That´s a sharp difference from where observers thought the bishops were headed earlier this week. Although the previous version of the document said that

Piotr Naskrecki was taking a nighttime walk in a rainforest in Guyana, when he heard rustling as if something were creeping underfoot. When he turned on his flashlight, he expected to see a small mammal, such as a possum or a rat. "When I turned on the light, I couldn´t quite understand what I was seeing," said Naskrecki, an entomologist and photographer at Harvard University´s Museum of Comparative Zoology. A moment later, he realized he was looking not at a brown, furry mammal, but an enormous, puppy-size spider. Known as the South American Goliath birdeater (Theraphosa blondi), the colossal arachnid is the world´s

Meghan McCain, always outspoken, says she’s got one big regret — calling Rep. Michele Bachmann a “poor man’s Sarah Palin.” “That’s the one if I could take it back I would, because I just think it’s so linear and so nasty,” McCain said in an interview with POLITICO. “And I’m not a big fan of attacking another woman anymore.” The two are now friends, and the congresswoman has even appeared on McCain’s show, “Take Part Live” on the Pivot Network. “It’s so crazy … she’s not the type of person you’d think I connect with,” McCain added. “It’s just with her being a

The folks at Media Matters for America are angry at the press. In a sublimely ironic post, Eric Boehlert fumes, “As Republicans seek to gain a partisan advantage by ginning up fear about the Ebola virus… they’re getting a major assist from the news media.” Boehlert believes that media coverage of Ebola has abetted the GOP’s low designs by creating the “unfair” impression that the Obama administration is somehow incompetent. “If the news media´s job is to educate, and especially to clarify during times of steep public concerns, then the news media have utterly failed during the Ebola threat.” Presumably, this
