Sarah Palin´s impeachment nonsense
could keep Democrats in power

Washington Examiner [DC], by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 7/12/2014 5:02:52 AM

“Without borders, there is no nation,” former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin wrote in a Breitbart op-ed this week. “Obama knows this. Opening our borders to a flood of illegal immigrants is deliberate. This is his fundamental transformation of America ... President Obama´s rewarding of lawlessness, including his own, is the foundational problem here ... It´s time to impeach; and on behalf of American workers and legal immigrants of all backgrounds, we should vehemently oppose any politician on the Left or Right who would hesitate in voting for articles of impeachment.” That this desperate cry for attention (dangling participle and all)

Comments:
Ouch.

Whatever else her talk of impeachment is, it is not nonsense.

He is guilty of many things for which impeachment is the remedy.

Why publicly take remedies off the table? "We will be pulling our troops out..., There will be no impeachment, etc. All it does is give the opposition a comfort level.

When upper management in big business has a problem with it´s CEO they´re gone. This should have happened a long time ago with Obama. I did not vote for Hope and Change but I am now. I Hope we Change the CEO of this Country. And the sooner the better.

We should lay low until we get the Senate.

Start thinking folkd? Is this a good time for this fight. It would be snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. I could not believe that Sarah Palin could come up with something so foolish and, yes, stupid.
If she can see her way clear to how we can jump the hurdle of a Democrat Senate she should explain it to us.

If impeachment is not to be used for a President such as Obama, then there is absolutely no condition under which it would ever be appropriate. It is a legitimate tool for congress to remove a president guilty of high crimes and misdemeanors. Obama certainly qualifies. The fact that politicians look at this from the perspective of political fallout is the problem. They have sworn to uphold and defend the Constitution, not their respective political party. Do what is right for America! It is your job.

By all means, let´s keep talking daily about the reasons this man should be impeached. Talk loud, talk often. Build a roar across America that even the MSM can´t ignore.

Go beyond that. Talk of the immense damage this man is causing now and in the future. Highlight his lawlessness, his folloies and his mendacity so that our next generations know what to avoid.

So the Senate Democrats block removal. HAH! Let them stand for the political diseases this man is spreading. Force them to swallow it whole.

Apparently, then, the only way for us to express our disgust for Obama´s criminal intention of bringing America to it´s knees for it´s perceived crimes is by letting him finish his second term and fade away.

Somehow, he has more than that coming to him!

Another clueless moron. I bet the majority of people in this country would love to see Obama impeached. He´s broken so many laws and told so many lies I´d rather he be arrested and charged with everything from fraud to not even being eligible to be president. Palin still scares the bejeezus out of crackpot democrats and RINO´s.

At the risk of being turned into a "Sarah Palin hater", I agree with #6. There will BE a time and place to impeach the worst "president" in the history of our country, but IMHO, it is AFTER we take back the Senate. Talk of impeachment now only helps the "corrupt-campaigner-in-chief" who is now CAMPAIGNING on being "impeached" and "sued"! Empty threats of impeachment gets his base of-lo-fo´s all excited and brings them out from under the rocks to defend their "dear leader". If we do not retake the Senate in November, there is no hope for this country. How many Americans want to see the House, as well as the Senate and the w.h. being further destroyed by demonrats?........When your enemy is destroying himself, why not stay out of the way?

No, Mr. Ed Itorial, the best way to keep Democrats in power is to refrain from challenging their lawlessness. You keep them in power by pretending their utter disregard for constitutional, limited government can be legitimately labeled "fairness" "compassion" or "helping people", even when they, like Dear Leader, smugly shred their oath of office. If a president openly flaunts border laws or is under the strongest suspicion of criminally corrupting the IRS, how is impeaching him not a political option, but a sacred duty?

I like this comment a reader posted at the end of the article: Love her or hate her, she acts on principle and not the politics of convenience or popular sentiment.

And this one: Who says the House shouldn´t act because of what the Senate may or may not do? THAT is the problem, playing politics is killing Americans. More people taking a stand is needed to right this wrong in D.C. And Palin is spot on. How could the Washington Examiner publish this absolute drivel?

And then there´s this one: What absolute imbecile wrote this article?

I agree, wait until we have the senate to start impeachment proceedings . . . but Obama had nothing to do with the children flooding across the southern border? Please. He´s the architect of that chaos. He made it clear the borders are open and children won´t be sent back. He wants the borders open so he can get as many potential welfare recipients into the country as possible. That´s just Alinsky 101. It accomplishes two things, it forces government action on the immigration bill and so amnesty for the millions of illegal immigrants already here who are all potential Democrat voters and it gets even more illegal immigrants into the country. The trick is that many of them are unaccompanied children. Who can be so cruel as to turn away unaccompanied and often sick children? In fact more than half of those children are male teenagers, likely or potential members of gangs and a mistake to treat as children. Undoubtedly in the mix are opportunistic terrorists. This is Obama´s dream team, innocent little waifs who must be taken in with a bomb in the middle. The attack on America from within and without continues.

There´s nothing wrong in theory with what Palin said,the problem is republicans don´t have a good enough case. You can´t impeach someone one with death by a thousand cuts. You need something so egregious that 60% of the country will stand behind it.Republicans can´t get 60% support for anything,nada,nothing.

Obamas simply hasn´t tripped the right wire yet and a civil war is much more likely than him being impeached. Most people are willing to wait out 2 more years.

the author of the article is right. Impeachment talk will benefit Obama. There will be a backlash against it and it will never succeed, even if the Repubs hold a senate majority. you´ll loose the support of moderates and independents. Then there´s the racial thing. You think he plays the race card to counter legitimate, polite criticism? He´ll ignite a firestorm if impeachment looms, and if Palin keeps talking about, he´ll certainly exploit it to roil the masses. Blacks are starting to get queasy about the border situation, according to some news footage I saw. Why hand them a reason to ignore it?

#8 - I agree. Someone should be talking about it, and I am happy that Sarah Palin is the one to do so.

As to the snarkiness of this article, "That this desperate cry for attention (dangling participle and all)..." I don´t remember the definition of a participle, but just wondering:

FTA: "his policies - including ON immigration - ..."

Would this be an example of a dangling preposition? Sounds kind of awkward.

The GOP establishment have taken impeachment as a remedy for obama´s lawlessness off the table. He now knows that even should the Republicans take control of the Senate nothing will happen. To me that only encourages his lawlessness and in fact will embolden him to do more destruction than previously thought possible. Once again the Constitution is being ignored by the GOP establishment. If we are unwilling to protect our borders why have a Federal government? We would be better serverd to let the States do that.

...and to the extent that he has usurped Congress´s powers, let Congress find where it put its bottle of testosterone, take a dose, and start pushing back at Obama´s encroachment on their power. Other Congresses have pushed back hard against strong presidents who treaded on their turf. The Democrats are all too willing to surrender their authority. It´s unprecedented.

Nothing wrong in talking about impeachment. Unfortunately with this crop of Republicans they can´t agree on much of anything because they are too busy fighting each other. The establishment would more readily agree with the democrats against it and both would paint conservatives as racists.

Timing is everything and although I do believe Obama is more than deserving to be impeached, we must be smart about this. It would be more effective right now if the cry for impeachment came from the people. I am all for talking it up and creating a groundswell. Keep the politicians out of it at this point. Americans are ticked off and they know what the remedy is. Let the people carry the message. Impeach Obama.

#22 properly reminded us that "The GOP establishment have taken impeachment as a remedy for obama´s lawlessness off the table."

That sounds a lot like the Obama/Kerry dream of negotiating with Iran of taking military options off the table.

Boehner moves slow - except when taking the impeachment option off the table. He strike against Sarah´s recommendation was faster than the strike of a rattle-headed copper moccasin.

#26, do a bit of research. The planning for Boehner´s legal action began many months ago. The legal experts have been working on it for a long time, narrowing it down to the most winnable issue, Obama´s changes to the healthcare law in violation of his authority. This has nothing at all to do with anything Sarah Palin might have said or done.

Impeachment will never happen of any Marxist communist elected official or just in the government bureaucracy of which we now most likely have over one half of all the bureaucracy who are communist calling themselves progressives or socialist, whatever, anything but what they are.

What is needed is enough freedom loving non communists to do as our founders said would be necessary form time to time. And, when done reduce government back to it´s founding documents limitations and put and end to "Our Constitution is open to Interpretation". It is written in plain English and means what it says. There is no, Well that would depend on what the meaning of ´is´ is.

I hear the Sunshine Patriots on this board saying: in cases where a duly-elected tyrant is guilty of abuse of power and offenses against the separation of powers, as well as mis-rule, and persecution of the People, there is NO remedy. The Constitution should be amended to read: in a contest between the tyrant and the Constitution, El Supremo must NOT be questioned, impugned, accused, criticized or impeded in any way. Guatemala is coming to us, and we are becoming Guatemala!

So the argument is for the Republican Establishment to avoid doing its job and hide behind litigation that every American citizen with an ounce of common sense knows is designed to mask their inaction and will drag on until Obama leaves office anyway.

The amazing part is that the establishment lackey thinks this is everyone first political season rodeo but not theirs. They whine that people are allowed to disagree with Sarah Palin but seem to forget that people are also allowed to disagree with them as well.

I suggest if you are too sensitive to have your comments responded to then maybe you should consider commenting where everyone will agree with you. I am sure the NRC has a comment page. Or maybe the Democrat Underground. They must have a rather rousing and energetic snarky thread dedicated to all things Anti-Palin.

Until then, suck it up buttercups! Not everything is about you and the Republican Establishment getting the senate.

If the Republican Establishment cannot stand and speak up for justice, the rule of law, and doing whats right no matter what the political climate now....

Why should we expect that to change if they actually did control the senate.

Remember Mississippi!

It is a phoney Democrat argument that impeachment will help the Democrats. Why would a Democrat or Rino make such an argument unless the opposite were true? It is most likely that the Democrats fear impeachment now. If they thought it would help them then they would promote it, or at a minimum quietly hope it would proceed. Too much bluster from them is a give away They have lied about how it helped Clinton and they are lying now. Standing on principle against such blatant lawlessness will be welcomed by the American people. It is important to ignore those whose interest is in supporting the lawlessness.

Clinton won a second term not because of his impeachment, but in spite of it. The Democrat media propaganda helped him, as did the pathetic Republican candidate and party.

Certainly the people would welcome with open arms those who support their obvious need for law and order to descend upon Washington. How can that be denied? People are not nearly as stupid or passive as the Democrats would like everyone to think.

Morally, Gov. Palin is resoundingly right. It must be said that if Obama had different color skin, his final days in office would be near if not already past. That´s especially true if his latest deliberate policy that is causing over one thousand illegal aliens per day to pour over the border leads to an epidemic of, say, tuberculosis, which is highly, highly contagious. Almost everything he has done is not only wrong but dastardly, and should not only get him removed from office--it should land his tail in jail. He should not be forgiven for the human misery he´s bringing about.

And yet, the Republicans would be making a strategic mistake if they try to get rid of Obama before November. Win back the majority in the Senate first. Congress will be in session for exactly twelve more days until after ther election, and pushing hard for impeachment will bring Lofos flooding to his defense, not to mention that twelve days isn´t nearly enough time to impeach in the House. Also, it would take 67 votes in the Senate to convict Obama and remove him from office.

If a few thousand healthy people come down with TB, scabies, dengue fever, or something as bad, perhaps the movement to rid the Nation of Obama might gain sufficient momentum to make removal politically possible. Unfortunately, those who are predisposed to vote left are going to have to see with their own eyes just how bad things could be. It hasn´t gotten that bad. Yet.

The issue here seems to be that some are equating "Don´t Impeach NOW" with "Don´t Impeach."
I doubt if anyone in this forum thinks Obama should be allowed to continue his executive overreach and disregard for the Constitution until his term runs out.
But what is the harm in waiting a few months until we have regained the Senate and have more muscle in our fight? Why not let Boehner´s lawsuit run continuously in the background during the run up to the elections... and then strike?
Politics is all about timing and we are involved in a very precise chess game here. Sometimes it takes lots of subtle moves to get to the end game.

Is Sarah Palin the only national figure who spoke in favor of impeachment or does it tell us much about who they fear that she alone was/is singled out in the editorial and in the comments here? By the way, what´s good for the goose is good for the gander. The Examiner´s editorial board and establishment R´s have every right to say and write as they please but they should understand the rest of us have every right to argue and disagree with them. We also have every right to stop holding our noses and voting for your preferred moderates.

Only Congress can impeach Øvomit.

But Congress has a strong majority of Demon-RAT´s and RINO´s.

And, sadly, even if the Republicans re-take the Senate and keep the House in November, Congress will still have a strong majority of Demon-RAT´s and RINO´s.

So Sarah can say what most of us know, but it´s not going to happen.

This once-great nation is just circling the drain, waiting for that final "flush" to end our misery...

#44 cont´d.

Stephen G. Smith, editor of The Washington Examiner since February 2007, is the only journalist to hold senior-level editing positions at all three American news magazines. He was editor of U.S. News & World Report, executive editor of Newsweek, and Nation editor of Time. He was also editor of National Journal, a weekly devoted to government and politics, and founding editor of Civilization, which in 1996 won a National Magazine Award for General Excellence. Smith also worked as Washington bureau chief for the Houston Chronicle, as Washington news editor for Knight Ridder Newspapers, and as an editor and reporter for the Boston Globe and the Philadelphia Inquirer. He grew up in New York City and graduated from Penn.

http://m.washingtonexaminer.com/about
Here´s what Smith had to say " with torn feelings" about a major shakeup at the Examiner in 2013:

As for the highly competitive news field into which the Examiner is now jumping, Smith said, “It is a crowded marketplace.” The new entity will distinguish itself, he says, with “strong coverage of politics and government that doesn’t have what is a generally a liberal tilt in the media.” Right up the center of the road, in other words. Managing a publication with straight news and conservative opinion, he says, poses little “problem” for Smith, who has worked at Newsweek, U.S. News & World Report and the Boston Globe, among others.

“This is not some wild-eyed right-wing Web site, such as some that might come to mind,” says Smith. “Oddly enough, I think having a print presence is important in that respect in that it disciplines you and shows you that the information that you’re publishing both online and in print is edited, considered for fairness and accuracy and isn’t just a bunch of folks spouting off.”


http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/erik-wemple/wp/2013/03/19/washington-examiner-editor-a-day-of-torn-feelings/

Seems to me that Smith has never been really comfortable with the conservative point of view...

Funny how someone that the Kneepad Media and certain posters have deemed no longer relevant can cause such an uproar with a Facebook posting.

#31 thank you for having read my post @#29. I am well aware, though, of the practices of newspapers and editorials. I happen to have a high regard for Byron York and for Mark Tapscott. #44 and #45 shed some light on Stephen G. Smith as Editor and, thus, makes me feel my original thought was not off base.

Everybody has their sights set on November like somehow having a majority of republicans in the Senate is going to fix the whole Obama situation. It won´t. Republicans have done nothing for five years and will continue to do nothing because they are terrified of the accusation of having ruined the reign of the First Black President. It doesn´t matter that Obama has broken every major tenet of the Constitution and has screwed up America to the breaking point, he´s Black and he´s untouchable.

I have been calling for his impeachment since his first few months in office and Sarah is spot on for calling for it now.

Loud Ferguson protesters
disrupt government meeting

CLAYTON, Missouri -- Protesters seeking the immediate arrest of the white Ferguson police officer who fatally shot an unarmed black 18-year-old loudly disrupted another government meeting Tuesday. The group renewed calls to remove the county prosecutor investigating the case and vowed political retaliation against an elected official tied to the prosecutor. The demand for officer Darren Wilson´s arrest and the recusal of the St. Louis County prosecuting attorney began with the final utterance of the Pledge of Allegiance at the start of the St. Louis County Council meeting. "For all," crowd members shouted, emphasizing the second word, as the pledge concluded with,

Worried the pearly gates won´t have clean water? TV evangelist Jim Bakker has your back. Twenty years after his release from prison following rape and fraud allegations, the disgraced pastor is busy selling unique survival kits apparently for the Apocalypse. On his website for his latest TV program, "The Jim Bakker Show," the 74-year-old sells everything from bulk "End of the World Biscuits," "Extreme Survival Bottles" — two for $57 — and extreme cold-weather apparel. The evangelist, who considers himself one of today´s experts on the Book of Revelation, appears motivated by the prophetic scriptures in the Bible, which warn of the Rapture

New York Man Charged With Trying

Federal authorities have charged an upstate New York man with trying to persuade two others in the United States to join the Islamic State, or ISIS, the terrorist group wreaking havoc in Iraq and Syria that U.S. officials have been outspoken about for weeks. Mufid Elfgeeh, 30, of Rochester, also plotted to kill U.S. soldiers who had returned from Iraq, federal prosecutors announced today. Last year, two FBI informants began building relationships with Elfgeeh, who -- not realizing they were working with the FBI -- encouraged them to go overseas and join terrorists in Syria, prosecutors allege in court documents. For months,

MONTREAL -- Quebec´s separatists are watching closely this week to see if the Scottish independence movement has learned from their failed attempts to break away from Canada. And it could be rejuvenated if Scotland breaks away from the United Kingdom. The Scottish National Party, which is leading the campaign for Scotland to vote yes in Thursday´s vote on independence, has been advised over the years by separatists in Quebec, a French-speaking province where two referendums on independence failed, though the last "Non" was narrow. Polls suggest the outcome in Scotland will be close. A vote by Scotland to separate from

Bill Cosby played the devoted father and loving family man on television for years, but off camera, Mr. Nice Guy had a volatile temper, played the Hollywood big shot and was a hard-partying philanderer. With riches and success, Cosby indulged himself in illicit affairs in Las Vegas and partied with abandon in Los Angeles with celebrity swingers and Playboy bunnies at Hugh Hefner’s Playboy Mansion, while his wife Camille was ensconced in their home. Cosby´s world came crashing down when an old lover from the summer of 1975, Shawn Berkes, approached him with a child she claimed was his and

Sarah Palin was photographed sweaty and make-up free as she ran errands around Anchorage, Alaska on Monday - marking the first time she´s been seen in public since a violent family fight this weekend. A fight allegedly broke out at a house party most of the Palin family was attending on Saturday night in south Anchorage, when daughter Willow´s ex-boyfriend Connor Cleary tried to get in a Hummer limousine after engaging in some unspecified ´questionable behavior´. Sarah´s eldest son Track left the fight with four broken ribs and husband Todd suffered a bloody nose. RealClearPolitics spoke with a source close to the

Hillary Clinton, World-
Champion Pretend Griller

How perfectly Clintonian: “While a crowd of several thousand Democrats waited on a sloping, grassy field below, Mrs Clinton, her husband and Senator Harkin staged a mini-grilling of steaks for the press at a single barbecue grill in a fenced-off enclosure, framed by a handsome tree and a picnic table filled with some patient Iowans. Mrs Clinton gamely posed, pretending to grill a steak that had been pre-cooked for her.” Remember all those relentless media references to George W. Bush’s alleged “fake” “plastic” turkey while visiting the troops in Iraq?

Mike Huckabee gears up for 2016 run

Mike Huckabee is leading the Republican presidential race in Iowa. And not by just a point or two: in a new CNN survey, the former Arkansas governor, winner of the 2008 Iowa caucuses, is at 21 percent, with his closest GOP pursuer, Rep. Paul Ryan, nine points behind. Rand Paul is 14 points back, Chris Christie and Jeb Bush 15 behind. Few frontrunners choose not to run. And when Huckabee, not yet a candidate and officially undecided, invited a group of reporters to meet with him at a hotel outside Washington Monday, he certainly looked like a man preparing to

Ted Cruz´s Squandered Opportunity

When Senator Ted Cruz delivered the keynote address at last Wednesday’s inaugural In Defense of Christians Summit in Washington, D.C., he was expected to place a much-needed spotlight on the plight of the ancient and persecuted Christian communities of the Middle East. Instead, under the guise of supporting Israel, Cruz placed the spotlight squarely on himself, and by so doing inflicted untold damage to the cause of Christianity’s survival in the Middle East. There’s been some misinformation about exactly what Cruz said to the crowd and how it was received. (You can see for yourself here.) First Cruz offered a few strong remarks

WASHINGTON — In his first year in office, Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. put new limits on when the government could dismiss lawsuits in the name of protecting national security. Now, in what he has said is likely his final year, Mr. Holder has claimed broad authority to do just that in a case unlike any other. The Justice Department intervened late Friday in a defamation lawsuit against United Against Nuclear Iran, a prominent advocacy group that pushes for tough sanctions against Tehran. The government said the case should be dropped because forcing the group to open its files would

It’s Monday and Rush Limbaugh is talking about what constitutes consensual sex between college students. The conservative radio host kicked off the week with a look at Ohio State’s new policy on consent, lamenting the fact that it “takes all the romance out of everything.” “Seduction used to be an art,” Limbaugh explained to his listeners. “Now of course it’s brutish and it’s predatory and it’s bad.” After reading off Ohio State’s definition of consent, in which students must “agree on why” they are having sex and must be sober when they do it, Limbaugh arrived at this line: “The

The half-joking play about whether she is running is starting to get a little old, but the reasons young attendees at Tom Harkin’s annual confab offered for supporting her were worse. Any question whether Sen. Tom Harkin’s annual steak fry Sunday was really just a Hillary Clinton campaign event in disguise could be dismissed by a look at its logistical priorities: The event had a surfeit of “Ready for Hillary” buttons, T-shirts, and bumper stickers, and there were not enough toilets.

President Barack Obama has declined to attend a dedication ceremony in October for a new memorial honoring American veterans who have been disabled fighting for their country in wars, according to sources close to the event. The American Veterans Disabled for Life Memorial (AVDLM), the first such memorial of its kind, is set to be dedicated during a ceremony on Oct. 5 near the National Mall in downtown Washington, D.C. However, Obama, who was first invited to attend the event in January, will not be among those in attendance, according to a source who is familiar with the situation. This

First Lady Michelle Obama has made healthy eating and exercise her signature issue. But, a recent study published by the Sage Journal found that her “elitist” advice actually “shames poor and middle class mothers.” The College Fix added that the study found that Michelle Obama’s healthy eating program is also sexist. It’s also sexist, the study’s authors suggest, noting that “intentionally or not, it places the burden of a healthy home-cooked meal on women.” Sage Journals published the study by North Carolina researchers Sarah Bowen, Sinikka Elliott and Joslyn Brenton. Here are a few of the findings: Magazines such as Good Housekeeping and

President Barack Obama unveiled his plan to tackle the Ebola crisis in West Africa on Tuesday, promising to do far more to tackle the deadly virus he said could result in "hundreds of thousands of people infected" without US intervention. "More than 2,400 men, women, and children are known to have died and we strongly suspect that the actual death toll is higher than that," Obama said in a speech at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, Georgia. "Hospitals, clinics, and the few treatment centers that do exist have been completely overwhelmed." The president was particularly dire

Cat Stevens - also known as Yusuf Islam - is to perform a series of dates in the US for the first time since 1976. The musician, who converted to Islam in 1977 and put his career on hold, will play six concerts in December. The 66-year-old, who was inducted into the US Rock and Roll Hall of Fame earlier this year, is now known by his original stage name and Yusuf. He is best known for his 1971 recording of Christian hymn Morning Has Broken, a top 10 hit in both the UK and US. Stevens had a number of other hits during

Democrats are now (very slightly) favored to hold the Senate majority on Nov. 4, according to Election Lab, the Post´s statistical model of the 2014 midterm elections. Election Lab puts Democrats´ chances of retaining their majority at 51 percent -- a huge change from even a few months ago when the model predicted that Republicans had a better than 80 percent chance of winning the six seats they need to take control. (Worth noting: When the model showed Republicans as overwhelming favorites, our model builders -- led by George Washington University´s John Sides -- warned that the model could and

The Obama administration is preparing to introduce major steps to phase out production of a popular chemical coolant used in refrigerators and air conditioners, citing growing evidence that the substance is contributing to the warming of the planet. The White House will announce on Tuesday a series of voluntary commitments by some of the country’s largest chemical firms and retailers to move rapidly away from R-134a and similar compounds used in nearly every office, home and automobile in the country, according to current and former U.S. officials familiar with the effort. The administration is simultaneously stepping up diplomatic efforts to

Hundreds of Ferguson protesters and local far left activists packed the St. Louis County Council meeting last night in Clayton, demanding action in the Michael Brown shooting case. Brown was shot dead in Ferguson, Missouri on August 9, 2014 after he robbed a local Ferguson convenience store. Brown reportedly smashed police officer Darren Wilson in the face, severely injuring Wilson, before he was shot dead. Protesters threatened continued rioting and violence if Officer Wilson is let off.

First Lady Michelle Obama is proving herself a very dear friend to the fashion world. Obama, a master of both high and low sartorial styles, will be hosting a Fashion Education Workshop at the White House next month. According to an email obtained by Women´s Wear Daily, celebrated designers like Prabal Gurung, Reed Krakoff, Maria Cornejo, and Bibhu Mohapatra have been invited to attend "to bring members of the fashion industry to the White House and enlighten, educate and mentor the next generation of fashion leaders." In addition, college students from around the Washington area will attend the Oct. 8 educational workshop, which

Bill Clinton never inhaled. Rush Limbaugh says he never smoked it. Marco Rubio won´t answer whether he ever did smoke pot but Sarah Palin admitted she smoked it in her youth and didn´t like it. Those pushing to have more states legalize marijuana consider this drug rather harmless, medically beneficial and liberal politicians consider this issue one that will attract voters. I don´t blame Rubio for not discussing whether he indulged n his youth or not. He is a public official with young children and carries a different responsibility than the rest of us. My own experience with marijuana was somewhat similar

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand dropped an f-bomb during an interview Monday, while trashing a loudmouth male colleague who criticized her weight. The New York Democrat said she was enraged when the politician had the gall to tell her she was too fat to win election after giving birth to her second child. “I had to just sit there and talk to him,” Gillibrand said in the interview, posted on the Huffington Post. “I switched the subject and I didn’t hear another word he said, but I wasn’t in a place where I could tell him to go f–k himself.”

Just call her a pit bull without lipstick! Sarah Palin is proving she has a sense of humor about the makeup-free photos that surfaced this week. On Monday, the 50-year-old politician was photographed by paparazzi looking fresh-faced without any cosmetics on. But instead of getting mad about the slyly snapped no-makeup shots, the former Alaska governor took to Facebook to joke about the incident. "Feel bad for the poor paparazzi hounding outside my truck this morning hoping to capture a tabloid ‘exclusive´ of me coming out of Bikram Hot Yoga.
