8/14/2015 10:01:09 AM  Jazz Shaw

8/14/2015 9:21:56 AM  Ed Morrissey

8/14/2015 8:01:50 AM  Ed Morrissey
Some may wonder at the headline, having seen plenty of prostitution take place on Capitol Hill, the White House, and K Street, a tradition that goes back at least decades. In this case, though, we’re talking about literal prostitution, especially

Forget Biden: Dems reaching back to … Al Gore?
8/13/2015 8:01:06 PM  Ed Morrissey
Five months ago, his team said he was out, but just when you think you’re out … they pull you back in. Maybe, that is, as Al Gore’s advisers aren’t actually saying he’s even thinking seriously about a presidential run.

The 800-pound Fox (News) in the room

Millennial hawk: Why the GOP needs to answer Hillary's $350B college subsidy plan
8/13/2015 4:41:34 PM  Ed Morrissey
Forget the Twitter bleg for emoji responses to how millennials feel about student debt. As the New York Daily News’ Alejandro Alba notes, the condescending approach didn’t generate much respect from Hillary Clinton’s target audience.

GOP insiders: C'mon, Trump's not really going to run third-party
8/13/2015 4:01:39 PM  Allahpundit

8/13/2015 2:41:35 PM  Allahpundit

Video: What's the worst case for Hillary?
8/13/2015 1:21:02 PM  Ed Morrissey
A perp walk? Oddly, that doesn’t come up in this clip from Bloomberg’s “With All Due Respect,” where John Heilemann and Mark Halperin focus more on the short-term worst-case scenarios for Hillary Clinton. If the scrubbed server
