Florida Rep. Alan Grayson, known as a heated defender of Democratic Party principles and partisan attacker of Republican views — especially during the Obamacare debates — was one of more than 100 victims of a massive stock trade scheme.
The radioactive smoke has yet to clear from Harry Reid's detonation of the nuclear option, but the senator from Las Vegas is already using his new powers. Mr. Reid can rubber-stamp any name President Obama puts forward to hold a high office; Republicans have been cut out entirely. Cushy sinecures are handed out as reward for faithful service (and cash) to the Democratic Party.
The Obama administration's all-out public relations push to sell its health care reform law increasingly is targeting individual governors, who will bear much of the blame, the White House says, if millions of poor Americans remain uninsured.
Fact: The IRS targeted conservative and tea party groups requesting tax-exempt status in the run-up to the 2012 presidential election. That's a fact. But President Obama, in an interview last week with sycophant Chris Matthews, now says the entire scandal was made up by the media.

Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts and New York Mayor-elect Bill de Blasio.
Bill de Blasio's win in New York City's mayoral race has put the Democrat in charge of the nation's largest city and smack in the middle of the nation's largest media market —giving him an unmatched platform both to pursue liberal policies and to cause all sorts of headaches for his party's leaders in Washington.
So this is how first lady Michelle Obama imagines Americans should spend their Thanksgiving dinner: Talking about Obamacare.
For the second day running, President Obama is staged to meet with notable Hollywood celebrities and elites and ask for money for the Democratic Party.
Jindal v. Obama: The new school choice battle; La. voucher fight revives reform led by conservatives
Two decades ago, while George H.W. Bush was still president, Republican governors like Tommy Thompson in Wisconsin began in earnest their long-brewing war on underperforming public schools.
One story the mainstream media just loves: Republicans at war. The party's splintered to shreds, torn beyond repair, rended in two, broken asunder. They write it week after week. The House speaker loses a vote, boom, the Republican Party is ruptured. But guess what story they never write?
John Edwards — the former Democratic Party rising star and famed trial lawyer whose celebrity political status came crashing down in the wake of an adulterous affair and a campaign finance scandal — is now getting back on the career track, opening a law firm with his daughter Cate.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi insists that Democrats are not fleeing Obamacare, despite the rollout's subpar showing and regardless of the 39 lawmakers who crossed party lines last week to vote with Republicans to overturn a key complaint about the new law — that it shuttered existing policies.
