Ann Coulter is back, as brash and delightful as ever in her takedowns of liberals, hypocrites and Republicans bent on defeat.
A secret letter signed by all the female Democratic senators shows that Hillary Rodham Clinton is their choice for president in 2016.
The blame game begins, and the usual suspects are shooting into their own ranks. If you think you can't hit your own feet, you aim at the toes of someone else.

What happens in Las Vegas, despite what they say, does not always stay in Las Vegas. Harry Reid, the Senate majority leader, has invited Democratic politicians and liberal activists to gather there Tuesday to sit still for sermons about global warming and to think big thoughts about clean energy.
As wildfires rage across Southern California, Sen. Barbara Boxer offered a solution: Address climate change and such devastating fires won't occur.

The Senate beat back a new push to expand gun rights Wednesday, defeating a plan to let gun owners carry their weapons on federal lands in states where it would otherwise be legal.
It could end up being taxpayer money going down the drain.
Foolish Sen. Barbara Boxer, California Democrat, seems to be allowed to say anything that might get her past a difficult moment or a semi-tough question and then she gets no follow-up from the mainstream media.
President Obama's pick to be the next chief of the Environmental Protection Agency told Congress on Thursday that she never has used private emails or instant-messaging to try to avoid open-records laws, and promised to crack down on those within the agency who do.
Two years after the nuclear crisis in Japan, the top U.S. regulator says American nuclear power plants are safer than ever, though not trouble-free. A watchdog group calls that assessment overly rosy.
But Mrs. Boxer said: "I have repeatedly said — publicly, privately and in writing — that Hillary Clinton should run for president in 2016. I can only speak for myself. I'll leave it to my colleagues to describe their views."
