Government - Working as intended?

I have come to a realization, an epiphany if you will, in regards to these ideals. Our government is simply mirroring the citizenry...

Rick Santorum Can Forget About Getting the Millennial Vote

Young voters made the difference in 2008, voting for Obama by a 2 to 1 margin, but Obama has had some of his support by young voters decline. This chink in his armor is something Republicans should be seizing on, but instead they have widely ignored this important demographic.

Facebook can put your political priorities on a Times Square Billboard

The ante is being upped on how we engage with Facebook about politics. It's no longer just about adding an "I voted" button to your profile, but letting your friends know what exact issues in "2012 Matters" to you. Bigger than that, your photo...

Romney Paid Through the Nose

Governor Mitt Romney has finally capitulated to the nation's wealth-haters, releasing his tax records months before primary candidates typically do to quell swelling resentment fueled by Occupy Wall Streeters, left-leaning media, and attention-seekers like...

Molly Swenson: More interesting than that kind of White House Intern

by Tamara McRill

American Idol introduced us to a new kind of White House intern Wednesday night, Molly Swenson. The Idol hopeful wowed judges and viewers with her husky rendition of "(Sittin' On) The Dock of the Bay". Swenson titilatingly informed America of her crush on President Obama, which she assured judges was "not in a Monica Lewinsky-Bill Clinton kind of way!"

It will be interesting to see what the Harvard University graduate chooses as her career path. Perhaps she can go into politics if the whole being a super star thing doesn't work out.

Goldsmith, Meet Swenson

Swenson is the Dos Equis (wo)man of interns. Her eclectic and impressive resume includes a county prosecutors office, Fundacion Crear Vale la Pena in Argentina, working a few months at The Seattle Times, and the Obama administration.

Now the 'Most Interesting Intern in the World' is on to Hollywood with American Idol. Oh, yeah, and she's been punched in the kisser by Randy Jackson. No lie.

Jonathan Goldsmith better watch his back.

Alabama Gov Bentley Learns Lesson from Not His 'Brothers or Sisters' Gaffe

2011 Alabama Gov Robert Bentley
by Tamara McRill

Say What?

You would think that Alabama Governor Robert Bentley would know to watch his tongue. Turns out the newly sworn in politician didn't know better than to make exclusionary religious remarks.

Monday, the same day as his inauguration, Bentley commented to a group at the Dexter Avenue King Memorial Baptist Church in Montgomery, Ala., that anyone who has not accepted Jesus Christ as their savior were not his brothers or his sisters. Fire up those pundit pitchforks, folks! The media had fun with this one.

Granted, speaking at a church may have fooled him into thinking his opinions were falling on welcoming ears--as they may well have been. But in a day and age where you can't stumble into Walmart at 3 a.m. for cold medicine without someone wanting to post your stained orange and red  pjs online, Bentley should have been more politically and self-aware. Every word he utters will be taken from the point of the office he holds, until he decides to leave the political arena.

Luckily, Gov. Bentley has four more years to work on his political front. Besides, he is not the first (by far) politician to commit a verbal gaffe in the first month of office.

Bentley has since apologized for the remarks.
