It is no surprise that Monica Lewinsky (pictured) is making an appearance on the social scene after keeping a low profile for the fifteen years since her sensationalized affair with Bill Clinton.
Hillary needs Lewinsky to be in the public eye long before the 2016 presidential campaign.
Lewinsky’s sudden public appearance is as if ‘right on right on que’ to help Hillary’s presidential chances several months from now.
If Lewinsky is in the public eye and talked about now she will be little or no distraction during the Hillary campaign and even the “vote for Monica Lewinsky’s ex-boyfriend’s wife for President” will have less impact.
States have found themselves running out of drugs used to execute prisoners after a European-led boycott of drug sales to prisons.
Tennessee has decided how it will respond to a nationwide scarcity of lethal injection drugs for death-row inmates: by bringing back the electric chair.
Richard Dieter, the executive director of the Death Penalty Information Center, said he expects legal challenges to arise if the state decides to go through with an electrocution, both in terms of whether the state could prove that lethal injection drugs were not obtainable and on the grounds of constitutional protections against cruel and unusual punishment.
A Vanderbilt University poll released this week found that 56 percent of registered voters in Tennessee support the use of the electric chair, while 37 percent are against it.
Mike Krukow (pictured), the San Francisco Giants' color analyst for Comcast SportsNet Bay Area, has said that Colorado Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki can’t possibly be hitting like he has been without cheating.
What Troy Tulowitzki is doing at home is simply ridiculous. It's not fair – and one San Francisco Giants announcer claims it may even be due to him stealing signals from the opposition.
"I swear he's getting signs," Mike Krukow said on the KNBR morning show. The Rockies shortstop has recorded 37 hits at Coors Field – which doesn't sound all that impressive until you realize he's only gotten out on 30 occasions at home.”
"There is no way you can hit like that, for this long. I mean, if you hit .571, that's for a weekend or a week. But you don't do it for six weeks. That's insane," he asserted.
And that’s from a broadcaster who covered San Francisco Giant super-star Barry Bonds all through the steroid scandal.
Bonds was a central figure in baseball's steroids scandal and was subsequently convicted.
Mike Krukow cheered Bonds but is accusing Tulowitzki of stealing signs with no evidence.
Krukow quickly backed off from his Tulowitzki accusation by saying his comments were tongue-in-cheek.
Yea, right. His tongue-in-cheek alibi came only after his Tulowitzki accusation was challenged.
Mr. Krukow was a pitcher in the major leagues and has been on the microphone of a major league baseball team but his accusation of Troy Tulowitzki was bush-league.
Former Democratic congresswoman Marjorie Margolies (pictured) missed her chance at a congressional comeback on Tuesday, when she was defeated in a four-way primary for a suburban Philadelphia U.S. House seat.
She is Chelsea Clinton’s mother-in-law.
Margolies was given assists by both Bill and Hillary Clinton, who endorsed her candidacy and helped her raise money. The former president also cut an ad for her in the home stretch.
She lost her seat 20 years ago after serving only one term after she cast the decisive vote for Clinton’s budget plan.
Joe Garcia (pictured), a Democratic Florida State Congressman, claims that low crime rates in border cities with lots of federal immigration workers is proof that “Communism works.”
Garcia attempted to point out how, for all their talk about limited government, many Republicans are fine spending loads of government money on border security.
“Let me give you an example, the kind of money we’ve poured in,” he said. “So the most dangerous — sorry, the safest city in America is El Paso, Texas. It happens to be across the border from the most dangerous city in the Americas, which is Juarez. Right?”
We are not sure just how that proves Communism works.
Above is a 20 second video that has appeared in dozens of places on the web showing the “Communism works" Florida Democrat Joe Garcia digging at his ear and then eating the wax from his finger.
