Romney probably won’t ever talk about nice things he does The Daily has a story about the good deeds Mitt Romney did in the past. Good deeds you hardly ever hear about and probably won’t any time soon because Romney for some odd reasons prefers being seen as a cardboard cutout of himself.
[T]hose closest to him don’t expect a wellspring of stories of kindness to emerge from the candidate, even if that means the narrative of a wooden candidate whose gaffes about Cadillacs and firing people endures.“He just thinks that’s the right way to go about it,” Tagg Romney said. “I don’t think he’s going to change. That’s why when he reads this article he’s going to be mad at me for exposing them.”
Is Hillary Clinton thinking about sticking around for a second term,Nike Pas Cher? The Wall Street Journal reports that despite her insistance that she’ll call it quits after Obama’s term is up this year, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton may now be having some second thoughts. Now, Clinton hints that certain “unnamed” individuals are asking her to stick around should Obama win a second term:
“A lot of people have talked to me about staying,” Mrs. Clinton said, declining to be more specific. When asked if current events will force her departure date to slip, she said it was “unlikely,” but for the first time left open that possibility for the short term.
Clinton is under fire today after laughing off criticism of the way the State Department responded to the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi.She also put President Obama in an awkward spot after she becoming the first member of the administration to step forward and take responsibility. But as this election’s gender gap closes, Obama might depend on Clinton to help woo female voters. The Journal agrees:
With presidential voting just days away, the suggestion she might stay could offer a sense of stability for Barack Obama as he makes his closing arguments. Mrs. Clinton has strong appeal among women voters as well, a possible swing constituency on Election Day.At the same time, she has faced rising violence in the Islamic world, a complex U.S. relationship with China and testy exchanges with Israel’s prime minister over Iran’s nuclear threat. These issues and others have gained prominence in the closing days of the U.S. presidential race. They also stand to shape Mrs. Clinton’s legacy as secretary of state and her future political prospects.

Sweet mixed messages: Bloomberg shuns soda, celebrates donuts During a press conference Thursday touting his efforts to ban the sale of large “sugary” beverages,Louis Vuitton Pas Cher, one reporter noted an interesting fact: Michael Bloomberg’s administration is celebrating National Donut Day.At 9:30 this morning, Entenmann’s and the Salvation Army will be unveiling “custom-made Entenmann’s large donuts, 1-foot in diameter” at Madison Square Park, along with a “Proclamation Letter by Mayor Michael Bloomberg.” The annual donut holiday has been celebrated every year since 1938 to honor the “Donut Lassies” who served the sweet treats to soldiers during World War I. The event also raises funds for the Salvation Army, just as it did during the Great Depression. But isn’t Bloomberg’s support for donuts and disdain for soda sending a bit of a mixed message?Of course not, NYC Deputy Mayor Linda Gibbs insisted. “The work of the Department of Health and Mental Hygiene reflects the mayor’s public health agenda,” Gibbs said about the possible donut conflict. “The message is that we will do what we need in our official capacity to protect the health of New Yorkers.”“The celebratory events, the naming days in honor of individuals or items, or frivolities that are fun and [bring] exceptional joy are quite distinct from a public health agenda,” she added.WATCH:What better way to publicize a bold new anti-sugar initiative than to kick back with a couple of Krispy Kremes?
Daily Caller’s ‘Media Matters’,nike free run 2; report gets personal We posted an excerpt from The Daily Caller’s expose (of sorts) on the liberal Media Matters for America. The full article contains some pretty serious charges. For example, according to an anonymous source in the story, Ben Smith, an editor at BuzzFeed and formerly a popular blogger at Politico, is in the tank for MMFA:
“Ben Smith [formerly of Politico, now at BuzzFeed.com] will take stories and write what you want him to write,” explained the former employee, whose account was confirmed by other sources. Staffers at Media Matters “knew they could dump stuff to Ben Smith… so that’s where they sent it.”
Politico’s Dylan Byers, who briefly worked under Smith late 2011, is coming to his former boss’ defense. The sources in The DC’s story “include — at most — one Media Matters staffer, one former Media Matters staffer, and a third ‘with firsthand knowledge,’ none of whom agreed to go on the record,” Byers wrote on his blog today. “In publishing those quotes without providing evidence, the Daily Caller has put accusations on the public record regardless of whether or not they carry any weight.”

Unhealthy: Rielle Hunter believes she and John Edwards are like ‘Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russel’ More trash from Rielle Hunter who’s running around promoting her new book. The book that details her affair with America’s No. 1 Husband John Edwards and calls the late Elizabeth Edwards a “witch on wheels.”Rielle suggests in the book that “the love is there” still between her and Edwards. On whether she wants to be married to Edwards, Rielle told People magazine, “I like my space. Not having to deal with the day-in, day-out. Like [actors] Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell — that keeps the home fires going.”The New York Post explains the awe-inspiring comparison:
Hawn and Russell have been together for decades and raised four kids together, though only one is their biological child. They’ve never tied the knot.
Could this get any worse? I hope so.[New York Post]
Huntsman one of the ‘sexiest men alive’? AARP says yes! I’m so sorry to tell you the AARP has named Jon Huntsman as one of the “21 Sexiest Men Alive” over the age of 50. Unless you’re into that sort of thing. In that case, congratulations.Here’s what the old-people organization said about Huntsman:
Before dropping out of the presidential race, Huntsman, the former Utah governor and ambassador to China, was the hippest dude in the conservative crowd. The 28-years-married father of seven once played keyboards with a rock band, rode his Harley on the campaign trail and referenced Kurt Cobain during the debates.
Does playing keyboards, riding a Harley and referencing Kurt Cobain sound sexy? Or does it sound like Dee Snider of Twisted Sister? The jury’s still out on that one, but also on the list are actor George Clooney, country singer George Strait and NBC news anchor Brian Williams.And that photo to the right of Huntsman– that’s the photo AARP used to illustrate how sexy he is. Or, to illustrate that he doesn’t know where the camera is, I’m not sure.[Politico, AARP]
Sen. David Vitter uses honey badger meme on Senate floor A dorky video that went viral earlier this year got a nod by Sen. David Vitter (R-La) on the Senate floor Wednesday while he talked trash about this Saturday’s LSU-UA football game.“It really doesn’t matter who LSU’s opponent is, because, as we say in Louisiana, the honey badger takes what he wants, and we look forward to doing that on Saturday night,” Vitter said to Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala), according to the Washington Post.That “honey badger just takes what it wants” bit was made popular by a YouTube video (watch below) that parodies TV nature programs. “Honey badger” was given as a nickname to LSU’s cornerback Tyrann Mathieu and the school’s collegiate clothing store has slapped the phrase on fan shirts.UPDATE: Several errors have been corrected to this post (too many to point out) thanks to our astute readers. This will teach me to never, ever write about sports again.
Juan Williams’,Louis Vuitton Pas Cher; son will lead GOP minority outreach His dad is well-known around Washington for his opinion columns and contributions at NPR and Fox News. But now, Juan Williams’ son — Raffi Williams — is reportedly following in his dad’s footsteps and taking a prominent role in DC politics.According to Buzzfeed, the 24-year-old has taken a job as deputy press secretary at the Republican National Committee and will spearhead the party’s outreach to African Americans and young voters:
He admits making young and black voters consider voting Republican is a tall order. But Williams told BuzzFeed a visible African American media outreach program can reap political rewards for the GOP beyond the black vote.“I think it’s a slow process. If you expect us to get a ridiculous amount of African Americans in the next election, that’s not going to happen probably,” he said. “But we can start to make inroads, and the more inclusive we are as a party the better optics we get to other demographics as well — not just African Americans — and that helps us in the long run.” …Freshly into his new job, Williams says he’s still putting together his plan of attack, especially when it comes to finding a way into the minds of young voters.“You can’t just Google ‘young outlets’ or ‘youth outlets,’” he said. “You have to go and kind figure out, well, where are they going? What are they interested in? A lot [of youth-centric media] has nothing to do with politics and doesn’t cover politics.”
Before joining the RNC, Williams worked for the Republican Study Committee and Black Enterprise recently named him one of “10 Black Republicans You Probably Don’t Know But Should”.

National Review soliciting donations to battle lawsuit The conservative National Review is requesting donations from readers and supporters for the magazine’s defense in a lawsuit its facing.Dr. Michael Mann, a professor at Penn State, filed the suit against NR and one of its writers, Mark Steyn, back in July for a column Steyn wrote. In the column, Steyn alleges Mann attempted to cover up data damaging to the science behind global warming. Steyn also compared Mann to Jerry Sandusky, the former Penn State football coach convicted of child molestation.Jack Fowler, publisher of NR, writes today:
National Review doesn’t look to get itself sued, but neither does it shy from a fight, especially one like this. …As many of you know, National Review is not a non-profit — we are just not profitable. A lawsuit is not something we can fund with money we don’t have. Of course, we’ll do whatever we have to do to find ourselves victorious in court and Professor Mann thoroughly defeated, as he so richly deserves to be. Meanwhile, we have to hire attorneys, which ain’t cheap.The bills are already mounting.This is our fight, legally. But with the global-warming extremists going all-out to silence critics, it’s your fight too, morally. When we were sued, we heard from many of you who expressed a desire to help underwrite our legal defense. We deeply appreciated the outpouring of promised help.Now we really need it.Please help National Review in its fight to kick Professor Michael Mann’s legal heinie.
