Obama Campaigning From White House?

Is Barack Obama campaigning for office from the office? According to this video posted on Real Clear Politics, it certainly seems so. So what’s the big deal?

Confirmed: Rep Weiner is a Dick

The jokes write themselves, but today Rep. Anthony Weiner confirmed the package posted on his “hacked” Twitter is indeed his own. After a week of denial (common with today’s politicians) Weiner came clean, tears and all. Prior to Weiner’s admission, Andrew Breitbart of Big Government and breaker of Weinergate, crashed the conference and set...
