With Gingrich Surging, Coburn Still ?Will Have Difficulty Supporting Him As President Of The United States?
Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK) is not a fan of Newt Gingrich.

Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK) is not a fan of Newt Gingrich. Last year, Coburn said at a town hall meeting that the former Speaker is “the last person I’d vote for president of the United States.” “His life indicates he does not have a commitment to the character traits necessary to be a great president,” Coburn said. And again last March, two months before Gingrich officially declared his run for the GOP nominiation for president, Coburn reiterated his anti-Gingrich sentiment, saying, “We need somebody that’s…stable.”

Now that Gingrich is surging in the polls (he leads in the latest Iowa poll) and is emerging as the GOP’s new frontrunner, Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace asked Coburn if he may have changed his mind:

WALLACE: As Speaker Gingrich takes the lead do you still have those questions about his fitness to be president?

COBURN: Chris, there is a lot of candidates out there. I am not inclined to be a supporter of Newt Gingrich having served under him for four years and experienced personally his leadership. … because i found it lacking often times. … There are all types of leaders, leaders that instill confidence, leaders that are somewhat abrupt and brisk, leaders that have one standard for the people they are leading and a different standard for themselves. I just found his leadership lacking and I’m not going to go into greater detail on that and if you poll the group of people that came in to Congress in 1994, which he did a wonderful job in organizing that and he’s brilliant and has a lot of positives, but I still, I will have difficulty supporting him as President of the United States.

At the bottom of the world, a controversial search for cosmic leftovers

At the bottom of the world, a controversial search for cosmic leftovers

The geologist who conceived it called it the poor man’s space program. Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) fumed that it was a waste of taxpayer dollars. Meteorite hunter Ralph Harvey simply calls it work.

For the 35th year, the United States is mounting its annual campaign to gather space rocks from the wind-hammered icefields of Antarctica.

White House pushes for confirmation of consumer watchdog nominee

White House officials Sunday issued a new report aimed at ramping up pressure on Senate Republicans to support President Obama’s choice to head the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, as key GOP lawmakers renewed their vow to block any nominee unless broad changes are made to the watchdog agency.

The new push by the Obama administration comes as the full Senate is expected to vote Thursday on the nomination of former Ohio attorney general Richard Cordray to head the CFPB, which opened in July but is blocked from exercising its full authority until a director is confirmed.

Iowa caucuses: Four weeks out, what to watch for in the GOP race

NEWS FLASH: There are only 29 shopping days left before the Iowa caucuses!

The final four weeks between Monday and Jan. 3 will be a political junkie’s dream as a somewhat sleepy Republican presidential contest bursts into full view.

With candidates hopscotching between early-voting states, new television ads appearing almost daily, and attacks coming hot and heavy, it’s hard to know what will really matter between now and when Iowans cast the first ballots of the Republican race.

Presidential pardons: A lawmaker’s support improves criminals’ odds for mercy

Dale Critz Jr. had millions riding on his bid for a presidential pardon. Scion of a prominent family in Savannah, Ga., Critz was poised to inherit the luxury car dealerships his grandfather had built in one of America’s most historic cities.

But Critz’s past blocked his way. Years earlier, while learning the ropes at an unrelated dealership in Florida, he took part in a scheme to falsify loan documents for low-income car buyers. He pleaded guilty in 1989 to a felony — a conviction that could have prevented him from owning the family business. Many automakers do not let felons run their franchises.

Kennedy Center Honors: D.C.’s glitziest night of all

You want eclectic? You got eclectic, and then some, at the Kennedy Center Sunday night during the annual Honors Gala, the city’s biggest, ritziest, celebrity-est party, fundraiser and made-for-TV tribute fest.

The 34th version of the three-hour show — this year honoring Yo-Yo Ma, Meryl Streep, Barbara Cook, Sonny Rollins and Neil Diamond — was its usual concoction of high and low and several things in between, played out in front of the president and first lady and a tuxedo-and-ballgowned crowd. Alternately noisy and solemn, rousing and high-minded, the Honors performances were, typically, a three-ring circus of American arts and culture.

Gingrich’s Jumbled, Amateurish Mind

Gingrich’s Jumbled, Amateurish Mind
Maureen Dowd, New York Times
NEWT GINGRICH’S mind is in love with itself.It has persuaded itself that it is brilliant when it is merely promiscuous. This is not a serious mind. Gingrich is not, to put it mildly, a systematic thinker.His mind is a jumble, an amateurish mess lacking impulse control. He plays air guitar with ideas, producing air ideas. He ejaculates concepts, notions and theories that are as inconsistent as his behavior. 

Windbags Outlaw Plastic Bags
Debra Saunders, San Francisco Chronicle
On his official website, San Francisco Supervisor Ross Mirkarimi starts his list of accomplishments with this item: “Plastic Bag Ban: First-in-the-Nation ban on plastic bags in chain grocery stores and drug stores, which sparked similar legislation around the world from Oakland to Canada to Paris to Beijing.” In his final month as supervisor before he becomes sheriff, Mirkarimi wants to expand the ban so that it applies to all stores and requires retailers to charge customers for bags at the checkout counter.”First in the nation” is rarely a good thing for a law. First, it…
