I had difficulty deciding what to write about for todays column. Its kind of been a slow news week, which means there are going to be a million columns about the fact Hillary Clinton took five questions from reporters.
It wasnt exactly a stop the presses! moment, but it was still a little surprising. George Stephanopoulos, former White House communications director under President Bill Clinton and ABC News chief news anchor, donated one and one half times the average American income to the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation.
Im quite happy being who I am, and I assume you are too. But if you had to be someone else, even for a day, you couldnt do much better than being a Clinton.
What was surprising was the reaction to the attempted mass murder and how the blame went to those targeted for death more than the would-be killers.
Imagine a world where you can be punished for simply offending someone. That world exists, and people are paying thousands of dollars a semester for the privilege of walking on eggshells for four years. But its not just colleges where these delicate flowers grow; the outrage brigade is everywhere.
In the 1980s there was a TV show called Not Necessarily The News on HBO that featured something called sniglets.

You are going to hear a lot about money in politics in the coming year and a half. Not just the amounts of donations to various campaigns and Super PACs, but about the very concept of money in politics.

Its going to be a crowded field for the Republican nomination for president.
Unless you live under a rock, youve heard by now that Hillary Clinton is running for president.
Democrat John Edwards campaigned in 2008 on the theme of his 2004 Democratic National Convention speech about there being Two Americas. The American people rejected Edwards and his class warfare both times, but he had a point: There are two Americas.
Whats the point in telling the truth? Moreover, whats the point in not lying? In many cases a lie will get you much further, much more attention, more money or power, so why bother telling the truth? Is the truth for suckers?
Nothing upsets progressives like disagreeing with them. Like children throwing a fit because they cant get the toy they want, leftists become unhinged when confronted with a reality they dont like.

If ignorance truly was bliss, youd think progressives and the Democratic base would be among the happiest people in the world. But theyre not.
