Ken Berwitz Does the Democratic National Committee actually want there to be debates?  Or does the DNC – headed by former Hillary Clinton campaign co-chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz – still want a coronation for the fast-sinking, anything-but-inevitable, Ms. Clinton?

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Ken Berwitz Today\’s quote comes to us from Senator and presidential candidate Marco Rubio (R-FL), who has had his fill of the churlish, childish, schoolyard-recess quality insults being hurled at him by Donald Trump, the world\’s richest barrooom loudmouth.

YOGI BERRA R.I.P.

Ken Berwitz My last blog drew from an article by Lee Smith Mr. Smith, apparently, is also an avid baseball fan – or, at any rate, an avid Yogi Berra fan.  And he has written what amounts to a beautiful obituary for Mr. Berra, who passed away on Tuesday.  You can read it here, and please do.

HILLARY CLINTON & MILLENNIAL WOMEN

Ken Berwitz Millennial women are generally defined as women born in the 1980\’s who reached adulthood around 2000 or shortly thereafter.

PRESIDENT OBAMA\’S OPPOSITION TO BAIPA

Ken Berwitz Since my previous blog referenced the fact that President Obama opposed, and did whatever he could to block, the Illinois legislation that would have protected live babies out of the womb in 2008, I thought you might want to see what I wrote about it at the time.

PRESIDENT OBAMA: PRO-INFANTICIDE

Ken Berwitz That title is not misprint, a sarcasm or an exaggeration.  President Obama supports infanticide. From H.
