Even among the few thousand members of the power elite, there are a small number whose influence is greater than the others. Here is a list of the 20 most influential members of the power elite.
The program to put Gingrich in the U.S. Senate is a "national effort" and "is starting with a petition from thousands of Americans to draft Newt and serve as part of a grassroots effort to support his sought-for candidacy."
This is hardly the first go-around between Newt 2012 and the FEC, which has been badgering Gingrich's debt-ridden committee about disclosure matters for months. But the FEC has yet to fine or otherwise take enforcement action against Gingrich's operation.
Impeachment proceedings would unequivocally prove to voters that the GOP's been hijacked by a paralyzed cabal of enraged, sore-losing malcontents whose unprecedented hostility towards the president is a brain-cell-eating disease that's rendered them rationally and intellectually impotent.
Despite what you've heard, the spirit of bipartisanship in Washington is not dead. Simply look past the vitriol, bombast and gridlock, then listen for the ka-ching of the nearest cash register, made flesh by friendly lobbyists and special interests.

Back in 1981, when Newt Gingrich wandered into my office at CNN, attempting to get CNN's support for an anti-ballistic missile system, and I questioned its ability to succeed, and he had to admit that nobody really knew if it would work, I have doubted the program.
Eliot Spitzer as Comptroller will bury the past in a pile of papers, lose himself in reports on the city's economy, and he'll come out the other side of this public service cleansed and processed, stamped and sealed.
On Tuesday morning, June 24, the Supreme Court announced its decision to strike down Section 4 of the Voting Rights Act of 1965, which designated cert...
I wish them all the best. God knows CNN needs a winner, and all of us need a newsier, better CNN. After all, I got fired for creating the show.
Anyone who has been paying attention knows that bureaucrats throughout the government are routinely abusing their power to advance their ideology and that of the current administration. Nowhere is this more obvious than in the administration's aggressive obstruction of American energy.
Our national politics increasingly resembles a party in which your crazy uncle got hold of the karaoke microphone and won't give it back until he finishes a paranoid rant. Maybe if you pour him another Manhattan, he'll pass out before all your guests leave.
