Yesterday, Connecticut Attorney General, Richard Blumenthal looked like he would easily win his state's race for US Senate. Today, his political career is probably over after he was caught lying about serving in Vietnam. This guy's whole career seemed to be one lie after another. According to the story, he even lied about being Captain of the Harvard Swimming Team. Turns out, he wasn't even on the team. Why do politicians lie when they have to know that they are going to be caught? A good question for another day.

Attorney General Eric Holder was in town yesterday to speak at a college graduation. It is fortunate for that college that he is still hanging in as Attorney General. It may not be much longer. After another dismal week, (remember, among other things he admitted he hadn't even read the new Arizona Immigration Law after he said he opposed it) he may well be on very thin ground. President Obama's Cabinet may be the weakest in modern history.
But Eric Holder stands out for his incompetence.
Today, the very influential Investors Business Dailey called on him to step down. How much longer will Obama stick with him?

On yesterday's show, the best pollster in America, Scott Rasmussen told us about his latest findings from the people of Massachusetts. 70% support Rep. Jeff Perry's proposal which would make sure that illegal immigrants don't receive state benefits like food stamps, welfare and public housing. But now, Governor Patrick has announced that he opposes Jeff's common sense proposal. If it works in other states, why wouldn't we try it here? We will be talking about it on today's show.

It been funny to watch the liberal media's reaction to the President's choice of Elena Kagan for SCOTUS. They don't think she is liberal enough for them. But maybe, they think, "she will grow". That means they hope she will start making up laws. My prediction: Kagan will join the liberals on the court and side with them 98% of the time.
Here's today's Globe Editorial to get a sense of what they are thinking about Kaga: click here.
As we have been discussing on our show, the Kennedy money grab for the Teddy Kennedy Institute is now approaching $68 million of our money. Yesterday, they showed up at the Boston Herald for some serious damage control to try and spin their way out of the mess.
How do you think this story plays? And why didn't the Herald editors ask the Kennedys how much of THEIR money they are putting into this shrine to Ted?

The plane had already left the gate. But the FBI and the New York City Police got their man. The Times Square incident over the weekend was at least the 31st unsuccessful plot on our soil since 9/11. We will be talking about all this on the Charley Manning Show today.

I've always thought that Peggy Noonan is one of the best thinkers and most beautiful writers that we have today. In her weekend WSJ column, Peggy lays out the path we are now on as a nation and where she should be heading instead. This is one of the smartest columns I've read in a long time. But that's Peggy!
