Which Hillary Clinton is going to show up for the first Democratic presidential debate Tuesday night in Las Vegas? Mark Twain once said that if you don’t like the weather in New England, just wait five minutes. Same thing with Hillary’s position on the issues – just wait five minutes, or maybe five focus groups. She – and the viewing public – caught a break this week when CNN cut the length of the debate from three hours to two. On some issues, Hillary may now have time to espouse only three or four contradictory positions. Remember, Hillary is a trimmer’s trimmer. This is a woman endorsed […]
They’re not making hit men like they used to – just ask Joe Burke. Actually, I’m being kind to Joe Burke. He’s a “man,” all right, but not a hit man. He’s a con man, judging from the alleged conversations the FBI recorded with him, as he and the undercover FBI agent planned the contract murder of a business partner of the G-man. This is a twist on the usual “hitman” story. Usually it’s some cop, often a Mass. State Police detective, lounging in the back of a dimly-lit bar, chatting up some henpecked husband who wants to get out from under his monthly alimony and child-support payments. […]
Ann Coulter is not fond of the idea of Speaker Ryan.
The former Obama supporter and Harvard Law professor critiques the President’s foreign policy on Russia, Putin and Iran.
Paul Ryan? Are you kidding me? Paul Ryan-o is more like it, Ryan-o as in RINO. Republican in Name Only. All these fools were running around Capitol Hill yesterday like Chicken Littles, elbowing one another out of the way to get to their Fox liveshots. The sky is falling, the sky is falling! Rep. Peter King, RINO-NY, actually said yesterday, “People are crying.” Get a grip, pal. There are worse things than having nobody at the top. Having Barack Obama at the top comes immediately to mind. Last week, John Boehner got a bad ice cube and decided to spend more time with his bartender, So […]
I understand that Patches Kennedy’s book is a memoir, so he can basically write whatever he wants. But seriously, if the former Rhode Island congressman was as loaded as he claims he was for as long as he obviously was, how much can the reader really trust any of his recollections? It must suck to be Patches Kennedy. Even his own mommy dearest has thrown him under the ’67 Oldsmobile Delmont, in the Kennedy family’s personal fanzine, telling the Globe that she knew nothing about her son’s new book, hasn’t read it, etc. etc. They were soooo close, father and son. Like on Easter Sunday 1991, when they […]
Can you say: deer in headlights? Maura Healey is tongue-tied when a loyal listener asks her if she’ll return campaign contributions from the Teamster Local 25 following the indictment of 5 union thugs.
Why won’t the Massachusetts Democratic Party denounce Teamsters Local 25 and its racist, homophobic war against women? Professional courtesy. You were expecting maybe Rep. Mike Capuano to take a stand against violent gangsterism? This is the guy who once exhorted a pinky-ring rally of business agents, assorted legbreakers and enforcers, “Get out on the streets and get a little bloody when necessary.” Now he says that “anybody who paints (with) that kind of broad brush is making a humongous mistake.” Hey, Capuano, did you make a mistake back in Powderhouse Park in 1993 when you were the mayor of Somerville and you threatened to beat […]
