In spite of all the blame, Hillary knows who really cost her the election

Imagine, if you would, that a Republican presidential candidate, say Mitt Romney or John McCain, had spent the next 18 months after his loss moaning and groaning and blaming everything from the FBI to Russian bots to xenophobia for the loss -- and the mainstream media covered the pity party.

Drama queen James Comey throws an embarrassing tantrum

Former FBI Director James B. Comey is an arrogant, pretentious, narcissistic, petty, egotistical, holier-than-thou crybaby who's indulging in a pity party and cashing in on his 15 minutes of fame by bashing the guy who rightly fired him. Published April 17, 2018

'Chappaquiddick' perfectly captures Ted Kennedy's immoral soul

"'I'm not gonna' become president." That's the reaction of Edward M. "Teddy" Kennedy (played perfectly by actor Jason Clarke) in the new movie "Chappaquiddick," shortly after he drunkenly drives a car off a bridge into a shallow pond and leaves a young woman to die in a half-submerged car.

Trump should tell the White House Press Corps to pound sand -- again

Every April, the media throws a party for . . . itself. The whole affair has become pretty disgusting: The big "news" organizations invite as many celebrities as they can, then 2,000 sweaty people pack into the Washington Hilton for a drab night of boring awards and some lukewarm salmon.

Congress acting downright childish

This bad: When senators from both parties gathered over the weekend to privately discuss how to end the government shutdown, they were forced to resort to using a "talking stick." Hold the talking stick, only you can talk. Everyone else has to put on their listening hats. Published January 23, 2018

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi of California dubbed the tax cut legislation that Republicans passed Tuesday "the worst bill to ever come to the floor of the House." (Associated Press) ** FILE **

Middle class gets trickled on again in tax-cut bill

Congress passed a $1.5 trillion tax-cut bill Tuesday, but you won't be seeing too much of that cash. The bill cuts rates for corporations and gives new tax breaks to private businesses, but you ... yeah, not so much. Published December 19, 2017

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, California Democrat, called her colleagues to arms against Republican tax reform she says will "raise taxes on the middle class before the American people can see the damage it will cause." (Associated Press)

Two-faced Pelosi excuses sexual harassment -- for Democrats, anyway

The top Democrat in the House seems to be in a perpetual state of confusion, loses her train of thought in mid-sentence often, and just seems out of it most of the time. And when she is able to string together a coherent thought, it's just weird. Published November 28, 2017
