After hours of questions from House Tea Party yokels, President Clinton hasn’t even broken a sweat.

Ms Clinton’s political presence towers over the Republican pipsqueaks.

Ms Clinton may have wrapped up the Presidency with a tour de force performance on Capitol Hill. No candidate running for the nomination now, Democrat or Republican, is a match for her.

It was such a political disaster for Republicans, Fox News didn’t cover it live.

Trey Gowdy (BA Baylor, JD University of South Carolina) was no match for Clinton (BA Wellesley, JD Yale Law School).


The lead Occupy protestors have joined the academic lecture circuit or are Guardian contributors. All have been eclipsed by the shooting star called Piketty.

With the apprehension of the chief Benghazi plotter, the Republicans’ entire campaign argument against Hillary Clinton just went up in smoke. They’ll turn even more anti-American now out of desperation.

Twenty years ago, I interrupted viewing the white Ford Bronco chase to play arcade games at the “dead mall” on the road between Northampton and Amherst (MA).

The prosecution lost the OJ Simpson case through incompetence and the arrogance that is typical of this category of lawyer. First, the prosecution didn’t rebut defense expert testimony that DNA evidence was contaminated. Second, one could see the prosecutors slump in their seats as the lead police investigator took the 5th three times on the witness stand in order to avoid perjury. Third, the gloves debacle was entirely avoidable. There was no need for Mr Simpson to put on the gloves in front of the jury.

Mr Cochran’s lyrical closing argument didn’t have a leg to stand on without prosecutorial mistakes.

How many more times

Seumas Milne wrote a refreshing column about the conflict in the Ukraine. Mr Milne usually blames all conflict on the use of drones. As one of Putin’s allies, Mr Snowden, like Mr Milne, would undoubtedly agree about the attractiveness of a grasping Russian neo-Empire.

Crimea is small potatoes, which shows the desperation of the creaky Russian Bear.

Putin is the model of a Chris Christie presidency.

The “Vicar of Christ” opposes idealisation.

It will be fun to watch the media spin out numerous “narratives” on Bill de Blasio’s approval %. The role of the journalist is to supply several narratives, even if contradictory and preferably on the basis of interviews with “unnamed sources.”

Will Glenn Greenwald’s new media empire become the TMZ of the Libertarian International?

Congressperson Michele Bachmann scolded “the Jews” for selling out Israel (i.e., by voting for Obama). She doesn’t understand that the Rapture is just a distraction from Benghazi.
