“Why didn’t we bomb the shit out of them?” a man asked me. “Why aren’t we bombing the shit out of ‘em? Give me a B-52 and I’ll go over there right now.” It was a chilly night in Texas, but his mind was more than 6,000 miles away, in Libya. He and I and some 30,000 other people had come to AT&T Stadium in Arlington,…
On Friday, I had an opinion about why the Benghazi and Planned Parenthood hearings haven’t gone especially well for the Republican members of Congress hosting them. The good thing about having an opinion on the internet is that someone is always on hand to explain why it’s wrong.
On Thursday, former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton earned a hard-won victory: She survived an 11-hour Congressional hearing in which numerous men shouted at her, and she came away looking unbothered. Unflappable, even. Now financial donors are coming out of the woodwork to support her.
Twice in recent weeks, we’ve gotten to watch hotly anticipated Congressional hearings, in which mostly male Republican members got the chance to grill powerful women who had upset them. In both cases, those members of Congress ended up looking like damn fools. How’d that happen?
At 10 a.m., Hillary Clinton was sworn in in the Ways and Means Committee hearing room for the House Select Committee on Benghazi’s fourth public hearing. And you bet your butt that some blame is going to get laid and hard truths faced.
With her dying wish, one woman shook her rankled fist at the sky one last time and requested that her family and friends do not vote for Hillary Clinton as president of the United States in 2016.
Happy almost Memorial Day, a day when we think about America and the sacrifices we make for it! To celebrate, Mediaite brings our attention to a beautiful clip of Andrea Tantaros of Fox News and Democratic strategist Penny Lee going at it on Hannity Thursday. Your necessary context clues here are: Hillary Clinton,…
Hillary Rodham Clinton may be in a whole heap of trouble now that news has leaked that the former Secretary of State used a personal email account — possibly CoOlHiLl27@aol.com — to conduct her government business and never had an official state department address during her tenure. Cool, laid-back official or…
How's this for a Downworthy headline? Earlier this week, the conservative Heritage Foundation sponsored a panel discussion on #Benghazi and a Muslim woman wearing a headscarf asked the panelists a question. What happened next will truly fulfill every negative conservative stereotype you can imagine.
Apparently you really can't talk about Lara Logan without mentioning about how hot she is. A new, over 6,000 word piece by Joe Hagan for New York magazine about whether or not Logan will return to 60 Minutes devotes over 1,000 words to her looks and (bonus!) her sex life.
Minnesota Congressman Michele Bachmann has issued her edict on the chances Hillary Clinton's theoretical campaign would have during a theoretical 2016 election: not good. Mostly because America simply isn't ready for a female President. I bet the schmucks who donated to Bachmann's 2012 Presidential campaign feel…
In the aftermath of Lara Logan's egregious reporting on Benghazi, she and her producer have reportedly been asked to take a leave of absence from 60 Minutes. She will also not be hosting Tuesday night's press freedom awards dinner hosted by the Committee to Protect Journalists as originally planned.
Things are going well over at the Washington Post. So well, that they've decided it's important for them to point out where things are not going well: in the life of "globetrotting" and "striking" CBS journalist Lara Logan, currently in trouble for a piece report about Benghazi now deemed inaccurate.
Former Alaska governor and current ??? Sarah Palin, who has a rare condition that renders her incapable of improvement, appeared on Megyn Kelly's show on Fox News yesterday. And it was... even more of a shitshow than most Sarah Palin appearances. Even Megyn Kelly — tough, no-nonsense host Megyn Kelly — had trouble…
Hillary Clinton's favorability is at its lowest point since 2008, thanks to the role she played in last year's Benghazi controversy. But man, does the lady know how to work social media!
Now that Hillary Clinton has testified about Benghazi attacked, all the people who accused the Secretary of State of faking a concussion to avoid testifying owe her a HUGE MASSIVE apology. We're waiting... but I wouldn't hold my breath.
Earlier today, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton testified in front of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee regarding the 2012 Benghazi terrorist attack. While the hearing was fraught with tense exchanges, Clinton ultimately took responsibility for the mishandling of information that could have protected the…
Hillary Clinton almost lost her calm, collected cool while testifying today on Capitol Hill about the Benghazi attack that killed four Americans and somewhat scarred her otherwise A++ track record as Secretary of State. (And possible 2016 presidential candidate. If we should be so lucky.)
