The 28 Most Beautiful People On The Hill That TheDC's Interns Found In A Single Afternoon: 2013 edition
It's not that hard to find hotties on Capitol Hill.
On Wednesday, The Hill released their 2013 list of "The Hill's 50 Most Beautiful People," objectifying and ranking legislative and executive branch employees based supposedly on their looks.
Upon seeing this year's lineup, the corners of the internet that noticed had one response — really? That's the best the nation's capital has to offer?
The annual list was the result of over 500 nominations from fellow staffers, and then whittled down to 50 at the editorial discretion of The Hill's staff.
In the past, The Hill's list has included some veritable hotties, but this year picks left something to be desired.
Wait, these are the most beautiful people who work on the hill? Ahh.. #thistown *sigh* http://t.co/524iXKzHhU

But is finding a bunch of beauties on the Hill really that difficult? The Daily Caller decided to find out.
Dispatched with cameras in hand, three Daily Caller interns combed Capitol Hill Wednesday afternoon in search of hot staffers and interns who were willing to sign a waiver and have their pictures taken.
Unlike The Hill's planned photo shoots, our subjects were given approximately 20 seconds to prepare for their closeup with completely amateur photographers. This is as raw as it gets, folks.
Check out our 2013 list of "The 28 Most Beautiful People On The Hill That TheDC's Interns Found In A Single Afternoon." The list has no particular order and is of course composed entirely of women.

Bill and Hillary Clinton are 'livid' at comparisons to Weiner's sexcapades and Huma's forgiveness
Weiner and his campaign aides have explicitly referred to the Clintons as they privately seek to convince skeptical Democrats that voters can back Weiner despite his online sexual antics - just as they supported then-President Bill Clinton in the face of repeated allegations of marital betrayals.
"The Clintons are pissed off that Weiner's campaign is saying that Huma is just like Hillary," said the source. "How dare they compare Huma with Hillary? Hillary was the first lady. Hillary was a senator. She was secretary of state."
A longtime Hillary aide and Clinton friend, Abedin's surprisingly unequivocal support of her husband after his bombshell admission Tuesday that he engaged in salacious online sexting well after he resigned in disgrace from Congress in 2011 left the Clintons stunned, continued the source.

Here's the latest news about San Diego's Mayor Bob "Filthy" Filner. Even though I'm sure everybody in San Diego knows that Filthy is a Democrat, it does seem odd that the article fails to mention it. Actually, it's not odd...it's typical. If he was a Republican there is no doubt that "Republican" would be included multiple times.
San Diego Mayor Bob Filner Asks City to Pay for Legal Fees
San Diego Mayor Bob Filner has asked the city to cover his legal fees for a sexual harassment lawsuit, according to an agenda released by the city council.
The city council will convene in a special closed session on Tuesday night to discuss whether or not to pay for legal fees in a sexual harassment claim filed by Filner's former employee Irene McCormack Jackson.
Jackson publicly came forward last week and alleged that Filner told her to "work without panties" and detailed other alleged acts of sexual harassment. Jackson called her experience working for the mayor "the worst time of my entire working life."
Prominent San Diego attorney Gloria Allred is representing Jackson, and filed the lawsuit last week. Read the complaint here
Filner has been accused of sexually harassing multiple women -- a total of seven women have publicly come forward claiming he acted inappropriately toward them.
The mayor has since apologized for "offending" women, and will enter intensive therapy for two weeks to "begin the process of addressing [his] behavior."
Filner has made the request that he should be defended under the city's expense through a letter from his lawyer Harvey Berger. The letter stated that Filner should have the city pay for representation under California Government codes 825 and 995 – which deal with compensation and defense of public employees.
The San Diego City Attorney's Office is advising the council during Tuesday night's meeting.
City Attorney Jan Goldsmith has said his office will not represent Filner, but he has not said whether or not the city will be responsible for his legal fees. It is not clear at this time how the council will act.You stay classy, San Diego.
People unfamiliar with New York City politics may not realize that it is theoretically possible (and was, prior to last week, quite likely) that
But the front-runner in the New York mayor's race today quit Congress as a serial texter of lewd photos to anonymous women. The front-runner in the city comptroller's race was "Client No. 9" in the prostitution ring of the convicted madam who is running against him.
Weiner's strongest challenger for mayor is a lesbian about to marry another lesbian. The sitting mayor and governor are divorced and living with women not their wives. The former mayor's second wife had to go to court to stop his girlfriend from showing up at Gracie Mansion.
Weiner looks like a mainstream liberal.
On cable channels we hear cries that Weiner is "mentally sick." Ex-colleague Rep. Jerrold Nadler says Weiner needs "psychiatric help."
Whoa, Jerry. Up to 1973, the American Psychiatric Association said homosexuality was a mental disorder. The APA now regrets that. And why is Weiner's private sexting a sign of mental illness, when kids all over America are engaged in the same thing every day?
Are we, possibly, a mentally and morally sick society?"There are eight million stories in the naked city. This has been one of them."

Shirley Jones reveals threesome, frisky sex life
Shirley Jones is a real tell-all.
The actress, 79, who clearly knows that sex sells, is revealing some spicy stuff in the pages of her new memoir, which came out Tuesday. And while Jones, 79, details her career from Oklahoma! to The Partridge Family, its her marriage to Jack Cassidy that's getting the buzz.
She describes the handsome actor and singer as her first lover and "sexual Svengali."
According to an AP profile of Jones, the star writes of Cassidy's impressive endowment, his attraction to both men and women (he had a pre-marital sexual encounter with Cole Porter), and their threesome with another woman.

I was pleasantly surprised at how thoroughly and objectively the war years were covered in the video. The last 10-15 minutes (when it deals with more recent history) get a little sketchy in my opinion but I leave it up to the viewer to decide. It's nearly two hours long but if you appreciate history and want to have a better understanding of the region and how the history drives current events then I highly recommend setting aside the time to watch it!
A review of Iron Curtain: The Crushing of Eastern Europe, 1944-1956, by Anne Applebaum
In 1952, Hans-Joachim Geyer, a low-level courier secretly working for the West German Federal Intelligence Service, was captured in East Berlin by agents of the Stasi, the spy network of the German Democratic Republic (GDR). Geyer, a former member of the Nazi Party, had little difficulty in switching allegiances. According to now available Stasi files, Geyer quickly admitted his work on behalf of the Federal Republic and went so far as to offer up his services to the GDR. With his assistance, the Stasi was able to roll up over 100 West German spies operating in East Germany and seize hundreds of valuable documents. So helpful was Geyer (whose work lasted only a year before his cover was blown) that the GDR paid a large pension to his widow after his death.Blood-soaked History
A review of Tombstone: The Great Chinese Famine, 1958-1962, by Yang Jisheng
It took Mao Zedong's New China about four years to carry out the "Great Leap Famine," the greatest single crime in the history of the world. The term itself, now widely used, derives sardonically from the Great Leap Forward, a campaign begun in 1958 to transform Communist China into a modern industrialized state in less than a decade. Central to this campaign was a massive reordering of China's countryside, especially the forced movement of the hundreds of millions who lived there into so-called People's Communes. Mao's agricultural policies mirrored those of his inspiration and mentor, Joseph Stalin, whose ruthless rural collectivization campaign in the 1930s caused more than 10 million deaths in the Soviet Union. In the People's Republic of China, over the decades, historians and demographers have come to estimate the deaths caused by Mao's collectivization campaign at about 40 million.The Higher Education Hustle
Political Correctness and Higher Education
The term "politically correct" entered the American vocabulary in 1991, following a widely discussed New York magazine cover story on higher education, and has become applicable beyond the campus. The Associated Press, for example, announced this year the banishment of "illegal immigrant" from its stylebook. One linguist suggested "unauthorized migrant" as a more respectful substitute. Jay Leno, who is not politically correct, preferred "undocumented Democrats." Perhaps "joggers without borders" will catch on.

Middle class has been left behind by Obamanomics
The unstated premise is this: More government means more equality, while the free market favors the rich and tramples on the rest.
But Obama's own facts help undermine that: Government grows, the wealthy, the big, and the well-connected pull away, and the rest of us struggle.
One reason: Obamanomics leans heavily on trickle-down economics. How does Obama promise to create jobs? With more loan guarantees to sell jumbo jets and more subsidies to make solar panels - taxpayer transfers to the big companies with the best lobbyists, with some crumbs hopefully falling to the working class.
Also, Obama's regulations crush small businesses, protecting the big guys from competition. This hurts Mom & Pop and would-be entrepreneurs, but it also hurts the working class. New businesses are the engine of job growth, but new business formation has accelerated its decline in the last few years, hitting record lows.
This gives Republicans an opening to explain that they can deliver on Obama's promises of helping the middle class and the working class, but they can do it by reversing Obamanomics - cutting everyone's taxes, undoing the most onerous regulations, ending trickle-down corporate welfare and so on.
Call it free-market populism, or libertarian populism.

Victoria [last name redacted], a 17-year-old Chicago high school student, said of her meeting with Zelaya, a one-time ally of Hugo Chavez and Fidel Castro, "Meeting the ex-president was powerful and intriguing. This meeting gave me hope. The president had a thought that not one politician in the U.S. has acknowledged, 'what can I do to help those who doesn't [sic] have everything they need?' It gives me hope but it also puts into perspective the cruelty of the U.S. government. Our system needs to be torn down and rebuilt with the bricks of freedom, peace, humanity and this can be achieved through revolution."

Not helping matters was Bloomberg's declaration of war on Southern Democrats and even gun-control Republicans who didn't hew to his exacting standards. And so Napoleon IV is watching his little empire of attack ads coming apart.

Obamacare's Branch of the NSA
Community organizers will use a Federal Data Hub to sign up people for subsidies — and even ballots.
The Department of Health and Human Services is about to hire an army of "patient navigators" to inform Americans about the subsidized insurance promised by Obamacare and assist them in enrolling. These organizers will be guided by the new Federal Data Hub, which will give them access to reams of personal information compiled by federal agencies ranging from the IRS to the Department of Defense and the Veterans Administration.
"The federal government is planning to quietly enact what could be the largest consolidation of personal data in the history of the republic," Paul Howard of the Manhattan Institute and Stephen T. Parente, a University of Minnesota finance professor, wrote in USA Today. No wonder that there are concerns about everything from identity theft to the ability of navigators to use the system to register Obamacare participants to vote.

Thousands of employees are quitting public sector unions in Wisconsin
The diminishing number of union members is more a reflection of the unions themselves that it is on Walker or his policies. Nobody forced so many employees to leave the unions. The new law simply unlocked their cage and allowed them to leave if they wanted to.
The fact that so many took advantage suggests that public sector unions can only thrive when they have thousands of imprisoned members who have dues involuntarily deducted from their paychecks.
If that's the case, should their sudden demise be considered a tragedy or a happy liberation for thousands of trapped workers who simply wanted their freedom?

Nationwide rallies against the acquittal of George Zimmerman in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin drew small crowds, a sign that Americans had largely accepted the verdict and that race relations are not nearly as frayed as Al Sharpton's National Action Network had sought to indicate. The flagship rally in New York only drew a crowd of "hundreds," while a rally in Newport News, Virginia struggled to draw two dozen.

Obama tries to break it to the Left that the DOJ's not going to prosecute Zimmerman
The line that’s getting attention from this afternoon's impromptu presser is that Trayvon Martin "could have been me 35 years ago," but that's both implausible and tangential to his real message. Why implausible? Because, if you believe Zimmerman's account of the fight, Martin ambushed him and then pounded on him relentlessly after he'd fallen to the ground. Say what you like about President Spock, it's hard to imagine him reacting that way to anything. To believe the "I could have been Trayvon" claim, you have to believe the most sinister explanation for what happened between Martin and Zimmerman — that Zimmerman killed him essentially in cold blood for the crime of being black, not in self-defense. No one outside of O's lefty base seems to believe that anymore, which tells you who the target audience here is.
