Al Franken, Harvard Man

 

You can always tell a Harvard man but you can’t tell him to not grope a sleeping woman. “I couldn’t believe it,” model Leanne Tweeden writes of an unpleasant experience with Senator Al Franken during a USO tour of the Middle East. “He groped me, without my consent, while I was asleep.” A picture tells […]

Grassy Knolls, in Dallas, Bowling Green, and Our Minds

 

More than a grassy knoll links the recent attack on a politician in Bowling Green with the ancient but recently-rehashed attack on a president in Dallas.

A sixtysomething millionaire murdered 58 people at a concert across the street from the Mandalay Bay this week.

Spies Like Us

 

Whittaker Chambers stuffed purloined papers in a pumpkin. Reality Winner shoved them in her pantyhose. Spies lack the style they once exuded.

Sore Loser Hillary Broke Campaign Promise Without Winning

 

Hillary Clinton described last fall’s presidential election as a “theft” in an interview with Anderson Cooper. “I think it needs to be eliminated,” Clinton said of the Electoral College on CNN. “I’d like to see us move beyond it, yes.” Like Miss Havisham wearing that wedding dress or Uncle Rico talking about throwing a football […]
