Deposed Gov. Rod Blagojevich is adjusting to a new lifestyle in prison, but he apparently hasn’t lost his taste for political grandstanding. Sources tell CBS 2 that Blagojevich was high-fiving other inmates at dinner Thursday night – his first at the FCI Englewood federal prison in Littleton, Colo.
As secretary of state she kept classified documents on the home-brew server in her basement, which is against the law. She lied about it to the American people. She couldn't remember details dozens of times when questioned by the FBI. Her aides destroyed evidence by BleachBit and hammers.
Her husband, Bill, met secretly on an airport tarmac with Attorney General Loretta Lynch for about a half-hour, and all they said they talked about was golf and the grandkids. And there was no prosecution of Hillary. That isn't merely wrong and unethical. It is poisonous. -John Kass
From the Arkansas Governorship to the U.S. presidency to the State Department to the Clinton Foundation, the Clintons corrupt every institution they touch.
That includes the current presidential election, with Bill Clinton meeting secretly (until caught) with Attorney General Loretta Lynch as the FBI and DOJ were evaluating whether to prosecute Hillary. Bill didn’t need to say particular words to influence Lynch, the message was sent by the meeting. It tainted Lynch, DOJ, the FBI and the entire investigation. -William A. Jacobson
As a registered Democrat, I am praying for a credible presidential candidate to emerge from the younger tier of politicians in their late 40s. A governor with executive experience would be ideal. It’s time to put my baby-boom generation out to pasture! We’ve had our day and managed to muck up a hell of a lot. It remains baffling how anyone would think that Hillary Clinton (born the same year as me) is our party’s best chance. She has more sooty baggage than a 90-car freight train. And what exactly has she ever accomplished — beyond bullishly covering for her philandering husband? -Camille Paglia

Illinois Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin earned “four Pinocchios” from The Washington Post’s fact-checker for repeating debunked numbers about Obamacare enrollment. “Bob, let’s look at the bottom line. The bottom line is this: 10 million Americans have health insurance today who would not have had it without the Affordable Care Act. 10 million,” Durbin told CBS’s Bob Schieffer on Sunday... “Even if one took the high end of these estimates, the most one could claim is that about 4 million people have gained insurance because of the Affordable Care Act,” Kessler concluded, “but that’s being extraordinarily generous.”
Long created the Share Our Wealth program in 1934 with the motto "Every Man a King", proposing new wealth redistribution measures in the form of a net asset tax on corporations and individuals to curb the poverty and homelessness endemic nationwide during the Great Depression.
Franklin D. Roosevelt routinely audited the income taxes of such critics as Representative Hamilton Fish, a Republican who represented the president’s hometown of Hyde Park, N.Y. Democrats of that era not only found creative ways to intimidate conservative and libertarian organizations, but also, like their modern counterparts, eventually attracted charges of witch-hunting.
CHICAGO — When Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. disappeared last month for a mysterious medical leave, it took weeks for anyone in Washington to even notice.

John Hawkins: Dellums was even a Communist, wasn't he? Michael Medved: Yeah, he basically was. I worked for Dellums for 6 weeks and then I couldn't stand it anymore. Because I think he so clearly demonstrated some of the most malign and malevolent tendencies of the American Left. Corruption, drug use, Communist sympathies if not Communist party membership.
You seem like an annoyed queen, radiating irritation at anyone who tries to hold you accountable. -Maureen Dowd

The notoriously chatty New York Democrat referred to a flight attendant as a "bitch" after she ordered him to turn off his phone before takeoff.
Here's the sad fact about Rep. Anthony Weiner -- he's an Internet perv. -NY Post
While the general impression during the 2004 presidential campaign was that Democrat John Kerry was the intellectual superior to President Bush, it turns out that their grades while undergraduate students at Yale were remarkably similar. In fact, Bush's were a tad higher. His four-year average was 77; Kerry's 76.
Sharpton’s colleague, Morris Powell, said of the Jewish owner — Sharpton’s "white interloper" — "We’re going to see that this cracker suffers. Reverend Sharpton is on it." Three months later, one of the protesters, Roland Smith, stormed Freddy’s with a pistol, screaming, "It’s on now: All blacks out!"
Alas, Warren’s bizarre posturing as a Native American (which she has pursued with all the conviction of a full blown delusion) has sapped her credibility.
At a fundraiser in Hollywood Sunday night, former Democratic Florida Rep. Alan Grayson used rape jokes to raise money for his congressional campaign.
