Political power corrupts everything it touches

Global Warming zombie: 'What an a$$hole'
How to solve this crisis of credibility and ease fears of a “tribalistic” culture having taken over climate change science? Why, with theatrical eye-rolling and a perfunctory dropping of the A-bomb on the skeptic you’re debating on British national television, of course.

The fireworks come in clip two if you’re pressed for time. Watch, if only to enjoy the nuance of a scientist complaining about “character assassination” mere seconds before indulging in a profane ad hominem.

Obama consigliere shields disgraced Desiree Rogers

The Chicago Way: Valerie Jarrett protégé a national laughingstock

The heat's on Desiree Rogers. Now, a lot of people in Chicago are wondering will they or won't they fire the nation's celebrity party planner. For those who don't know, Rogers has been under intense scrutiny since a Washington couple crashed the president's first state dinner.

Despite their names not being on a guest list, the uninvited managed to get up close and personal with President Obama and other Cabinet members.

A committee investigating how the Salahis did it want to talk to Rogers. That's not likely to happen. So far, the White House has dug in its heels -- ignoring threats from members of Congress that if Rogers doesn't voluntarily talk to them, she will be subpoenaed.

But the controversy has put Rogers in the headlights. What an untidy mess for an administration that likes things tied with a bow.

On Thursday, the director of the U.S. Secret Service, Mark Sullivan, threw himself and his agency into the flames by acknowledging to a House committee that "appropriate procedures" were not followed. The agents who waved the Salahis by all of the checkpoints have been relieved of their duties and most likely will be sacked.

Meanwhile, the White House social secretary appears to be immune to any punishment. As an early supporter of the Obama campaign, and the BFF of Obama insider Valerie Jarrett, Rogers has been instrumental in hooking up the first family with the right benefactors.

Labor Dept: Available Labor Rate Increases To 10.2%
In what is being touted by the Labor Department as extremely positive news, the nation's available labor rate has reached double digits for the first time in 26 years, bringing the total number of potentially employable Americans to an impressive 15.7 million.

"This is such an exciting time to be an employer in America," said Labor Secretary Hilda Solis, adding that every single day 6,500 more citizens join America's growing possible workforce. "There's such a massive and diverse pool of job-ready Americans to choose from. And each month the number only gets higher."

"While our current available labor rate of 10.2 percent isn't quite as robust as it was in 1982 or 1933, we're happy to say that reaching that benchmark is no longer out of the realm of possibility," Solis continued.
