Democrats are up to their eyeballs in sex scandals (some new, some re-hashed): Weiner can't seem to stop sexting with college-age women (the most recent of whom told Howard Stern that Weiner was a "needy little bitch"), Spitzer---he of the hookers and black socks---is busy passing judgment on Weiner, and San Diego Mayor Bob Filner has the cojones to ask the City Council (and San Diego taxpayers) to foot his legal bills in a lawsuit claiming he serially groped and harassed women in his employ.
Quite the distinguished Generals in the Democrats' War on Women.
"The campaign staff awoke to see their former intern, Olivia Nuzzi, on the front cover of the Daily News. Inside the paper was an article bylined by Nuzzi in which she told a rather unflattering tale of her experience working on Anthony Weiner’s mayoral bid.
"Now, Team Weiner is firing back. TPM called Weiner’s communications director Barbara Morgan to discuss an unrelated story Tuesday and she went off on a curse-filled rant about Nuzzi, describing her as a fame hungry “bitch” who “sucked” at her job. Morgan also called Nuzzi a “slutbag,” “tw*t,” and “c*nt” while threatening to sue her.
"“It’s all bullshit,” she said. “I mean, it’s such bullshit. She could f**king — f**king tw*t.”
"Based on her colorful description of Nuzzi’s cover story, TPM asked Morgan whether she thought Nuzzi joined the campaign with the express purpose of penning a tell-all story.
"“And then like she had the f**king balls to like trash me in the paper. And be like, ‘His communications director was last the press secretary of the Department of Education in New Jersey,” Morgan said. “You know what? F**k you, you little c*nt. I’m not joking, I am going to sue her.”"
I didn't think it was possible, but there is someone (possibly) worse and more offensive than Weiner. When the (bleep) hit the fan, Morgan took a stab at an apology:
“In a moment of frustration, I used inappropriate language in what I thought was an off the record conversation,” Morgan said in a statement. “It was wrong and I am very sorry, which is what I said tonight when I called and emailed Olivia to apologize.”
TPM says that it was VERY clear that the interview was on the record and they stand by their story.
Weiner’s campaign called the intern a “slutbag,” Spitzer transported hookers across state lines, and Filner demanded female employees come to work without their panties so he wouldn't have to deal with panty lines when he grabbed their butts.
This IS the Democrat party. This IS the Left. Weiner's mud has now flung up on to Hillary, which is why everyone is having a meltdown. But it's not just Weiner and his head-case staff. The war on women is real....and it's happening on the Left.
The Anthony Weiner/Carlos Danger/Huma Abedin psychodrama has kicked over an old, moldy rock, beneath which is the revolting and exhausting thing known as the Clinton psychodrama.
Abedin has been Hillary Clinton's closest adviser for nearly two decades, from the White House to the Senate to the State Department. By many accounts, Abedin is the person to whom Hillary turns first, after Bill. Her full-time job is running Hillary's "transition team"---leaving open the question: "transition to what?" The answer is pretty obvious.
After the new revelations that Carlos Danger kept sexting with college-age women right through this year, Abedin stood by his side, claiming that she "loves" and "believes in" him. The script was right out of the Hillary Clinton playbook. And yet, reports are that Hillary and Bill are "furious" with the comparisons. Take that one with a grain of salt.
Then there's the question of truth, which has always been elastic for the Clintons. Here is one version of events from the New York Post:
"“Hillary didn’t know Huma would do this whole stand-by-your-man routine, and that’s one of the reasons the Clintons are distancing themselves from all this nonsense,’’ the source said." (http://www.nypost.com/p/news/local/clintons_mad_as_hill_over_huma_tactic_DreEqQum5fMMD4SiXeWSLJ)
And here's another version from Politico: "Abedin did not give Clinton a personal heads-up that she planned to defend her husband at a hastily-called press conference last week. Still, Clinton was aware ahead of time that she planned to do it, having been alerted from others in her orbit, sources said." (http://dyn.politico.com/printstory.cfm?uuid=4F9438A9-3E9F-4564-AA5D-273B038B27E7)
So: did Hillary know ahead of time or didn't she? The answer to that particular question may be immaterial, but the bigger point is not. The Clintons have always had a casual acquaintance with the truth, which led---and continues to lead---to all kinds of distress for the nation. She didn't know about Bill's womanizing in 1992 when they first ran for president. She didn't know about Monica Lewinsky before that scandal blew up. She didn't know that Huma was going to do a Hillary routine. She didn't know what what going on in Benghazi, and she doesn't know what has happened since.
For the "smartest woman in the world," she's pretty stupid. And she's still the same old slippery liar.
This weekend on the "Monica Crowley Show," we'll be all over President Obama's latest articulation of socialism, the Anthony and Huma drama and what it's REALLY all about, the collapse of Detroit and the wreckage of liberalism, and how far along we are now in Obama's "fundamental transformation of the nation."

The Republicans are going wobbly on defunding Obamacare, the ONLY chance left to stop socialized medicine before it's a fait accompli and we're stuck with this critical piece of Obama's "fundamental transformation of America." Read this:
The Republicans never miss an opportunity to miss an opportunity, snatch defeat from the jaws of victory, and end up growing government, hurting personal and economic freedom, and damaging the Constitution. Please let them know that you strongly disapprove---and that they will pay a steep price for going weak on Obamacare.
Don't be distracted by Weiner's weiner. Courtesy of the brilliant Andrew McCarthy at National Review Online, here is the REAL Huma Abedin story, involving her and her family's ties to Islamic supremacists. Please read it. You need this information about Hillary's top aide as Hillary prepares to run for president:
Did anyone REALLY think that Anthony Weiner was no longer obsessed with his penis? Did anyone REALLY think that he had stopped sending explicit sexual texts to young women around the country? Did anyone REALLY think he had truly seen the errors of his ways and had changed his behavior? Did anyone REALLY think that he had suddenly stopped lying....and that he had discovered a newfound respect for women?
Does anyone REALLY think that Eliot Spitzer has suddenly become a decent man who respects women?
President Obama heads to Illinois today to deliver yet another speech "pivoting" to jobs and the economy. By most counts, this will be his 19th "pivot" to the subject. And for the gazillionth time, we will hear more radical wealth redistribution, class warfare, and arguments for ever-bigger government and ever-more government spending. We will also get more phony lip service given to the private sector.
Obama is a totally committed leftist ideologue. His mission is not to get the economy growing. His mission is not to unleash the private sector. It's to shackle it. His mission is to expand government as fast and as widespread as possible, to expand the number of people dependent on government as fast and as widespread as possible (hence, the deliberate maintenance of a crappy economy), and thus to create a permanent Democrat voting majority.
This is why we will get today's gazillionth speech laying out the same old big government, bankrupting-spending approach.
Does anyone REALLY think we'll hear anything different?
Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.
The story reprinted below is beyond horrifying. It's also what happens when the federal government refuses to enforce our borders and when the president and attorney general---the nation's two top law enforcement officers---choose to ignore the rule of law. Before there is ANY movement in the House on immigration "reform," everybody needs to read this story. We don't enforce the CURRENT laws on the books, hence heinous crimes like this one. Does ANYONE expect the government to enforce a new set of laws? Please. Shame on Obama, the Democrats, and the Republicans supporting the Gang of Eight monstrosity. But it's not too late to step up and do REAL immigration reform the RIGHT way, starting with TRULY protecting the border.
Here is the complete story which should outrage you:
"On Wednesday, police in Austin arrested two Mexican nationals who reportedly participated in the gang-rape of a 13-year-old girl on June 29.
"The girl, a runaway, who lives at the Settlement Home for Children, was picked up by three Latino men and driven to the Avalon Arms apartments, where she was raped by a large group of men for several hours, according to police.
"As many as 13 men took turns sexually assaulting the girl. Many cheered and filmed the sickening crime on their cell phones, according to court documents.
"Juan Lozano Ortega, 25, and Edgar Gerardo Guzman Perez, 26, have been charged with aggravated sexual assault of a child. Both are currently being held in the Travis County Jail on immigration detainers.
""The affidavit states the assault lasted until early into the morning of June 30, then the victim was driven to a nearby neighborhood and told to "find somewhere to go."
""Police say they were able to track Ortega and Perez from the phone call the girl made to her foster brother with their cell phone. She was able to make it back on her own to the settlement home.""
"The girl was taken to a nearby hospital, where doctors determined her injuries were consistent with her allegations.
"Austin police are currently searching for the other assailants.
"Anyone with information on this crime is urged to contact the Austin Police Department at (512) 974-5750."
So many of you emailed and tweeted me about Friday's "Hannity" show, in which I laid bare the true agenda of the Left and the so-called black "leaders." Thank you for your words of encouragement and support. Here's part of the exchange that inspired so much controversy and discussion:
The rule of law: what's it good for? This weekend on the "Monica Crowley Show," we'll be all over the dissolution of the rule of law in America, which is quickly being replaced by capriciousness and the rule of the mob. What made America exceptional is being deliberately destroyed. We'll take it apart. Plus we'll talk to J. Christian Adams about the corruption at the Holder DOJ, and to Fox Business's Charlie Gasparino about his new book, "Circle of Friends." And a lot more!
