Outgoing HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius hopes ObamaCare covers injuries sustained from being shoved out a door.
After magically manufacturing her own low-ball projections of 7 million-plus signups for ObamaCare, she high fives herself, then exits stage far left. She leaves the smoldering ruins of a poorly thought out commandeering of one seventh of our economy by a bumbling group of ineffective ideologues.
The media coverage was what you would imagine. CBS called her "heroic." Fox asked for details and accountability. MSNBC called Fox "racist and sexist" for wanting details. CNN built a paper airplane, tossed it around the studio, and interviewed experts on Sebelius' projected flight pattern back to Kansas. more >>
Only days after Rep. Vance McAllister (R-La.) was caught kissing a staffer in his district office, Republicans in Louisiana were calling on the freshman congressman to immediately resign. One question that many in Louisiana and in Washington are asking is if McAllister is being asked to resign, what about the Bayou State's own Sen. David Vitter?
In case your knowledge of political sex scandals has faded over the last decade or so, Vitter had his own troubles in 2007 when his name surfaced in the black book of an infamous D.C. Madam. Amazingly, Vitter got through the scandal by only acknowledging his involvement with the prostitution service as a "serious sin."
"I asked for and received forgiveness form God and from my wife in confession and marriage counseling," Vitter said after the scandal broke. more >>
Former Senator Rick Santorum's (R-PA) Christian film company announced on Monday that it would be distributing its movies not through the traditional box office but through churches.
EchoLight Studios, which released last year's adaptation of Max Lucado's The Christmas Candle, told Deadline that the studio made the decision as a strategic attempt to draw the masses into churches.
"We want to be a part of empowering the church to elevate its role as a cultural change agent," EchoLight President Studios Jeff Sheets said in a statement. "Our vision is not to create sermons wrapped in a movie but to create content that inspires, fascinates and incorporates a strong Christian worldview." more >>
The 15 children who vanished from a Mexico City children's shelter in 2008 run by a small evangelical sect had been given away to church members, according to Mexican authorities.
Earlier this month, prosecutors announced that they had located 12 of the children who had disappeared after three of them showed up at their offices in Puebla state. The shelters, known as Casitas del Sur (Little Houses of the South,) were founded by Iglesia Cristiana Restaurada (Restored Christian Church), a cult that reportedly runs shelters in at least seven other Mexican states and overseas. Children had been placed in the shelters "by child welfare authorities to house children from broken families or whose parents were temporarily unable to care for them," according to the AP.
But instead of providing a sanctuary for the children, the Mexican Attorney General's office said that RCC had allowed the children to be illegally adopted and reportedly "brainwashed" by the church. more >>
This Desert Rain Frog is so little and so adorable that it makes you want to take it home with you. Its call is a high-pitched squeal that's as sympathetically appealing as any weaning puppy's whimper. But man is it weird looking.
It seems like the billowing blow-back from the effort of making those sounds puts the wee frog off-balance. And more than that, it's hard to see how its unwieldy bloated torso would allow him to move. Is he calling to his friends to bring a tiny wagon so that they can pull him around inside?more >>
The collective heart of a Central Kentucky community opened wide for an 18-year-old high school senior after his mother and father died just weeks apart and saddled him with the burden of paying for their funerals.
A few weeks ago, Estill County High School senior Joe Snowden lost his father to cancer, then last Thursday his sorrow was doubled when his mother, 39-year-old Marinda Lewis, died in an automobile accident, according to WKYT.
"[It's] something horrific, it's been absolutely horrible and I can't imagine (how it is) for him," said Debbie Powell, a friend of Snowden. more >>
