Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) called out a protester rallying against former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger at an Armed Services Committee hearing on Thursday, calling him "low-life scum."
"Arrest Henry Kissinger for war crimes!" the protesters chanted while holding up signs. As the chanting went on, McCain could be heard summoning U.S. Capitol Police. In later remarks, he called the protest "disgraceful, and outrageous, and despicable."
"You're going to have to shut up, or I'm going to have you arrested," McCain said as a protester interrupted his remarks. "Get out of here, you low-life scum," McCain added as the protester was removed from the room.
McCain then apologized to Kissinger, who testified about global challenges to national security at the hearing.

It's hard for John Boehner to relate to people trying to survive on a full-time job that pays $15,000 when he has a part-time job that pays $223,000.
Penn State and the NCAA have come to an agreement that will restore the 112 wins taken away from the schools football program in 2012 over its mishandling of the Jerry Sandusky child-molestation scandal. And Keith Olbermann is pissed off about it.
The ESPN anchor, who is not exactly one to mince words, named the two parties the worlds worst during his show on Friday (it starts around 2:00 in the video above). The agreement will once again make the late Joe Paterno the winningest coach in major college football history. Paterno was accused in a 2012 report by former FBI Director Louis Freeh of covering up the scandal to avoid bad press, which allegedly allowed Sandusky to continue to abuse children.
In his segment, Olbermann took the NCAA and Penn State to task for continuing to worry about the legacy of its football program and coach.
This is Joe Paternos legacy. This is Penn States legacy, Keith Olberman said. Football was more important to them than saving children."
There is a Keith video and not much more to the article but here's the HuffPo link: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2015/01/17/keith-olbermann-penn-state_n_6493136.html
"Most Americans now consider Romney to be a stalker." OMG, he is hilarious...

Romney talked about her life as the wife of former Massachusetts governor and two-time Republican presidential contender Mitt Romney. Married for 45 years, the couple have five sons and 22 grandchildren.
She also discussed her drive to open the Ann Romney Center for Neurologic Diseases, which is set to open in 2016 at Brigham and Womens Hospital in Boston. The center will work to find cures and new treatments for multiple sclerosis, Alzheimers disease, Lou Gehrigs disease (known as ALS), Parkinsons disease and brain tumors.
Romney was 49 when she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1998.
I went into a severe depression, she said. I thought my life was over.
Her health deteriorated, until she connected with neurologist Howard Weiner, who will head the new research facility. Shes been in remission for several years.
I recognize that many people dont go into permanent remission like I have done, whose disease continues to progress, she said. I can tell you, help is on the way.

An Ohio man admitted emailing death threats last month to Rush Limbaugh, telling Palm Beach police that he was drinking at the time and sent the threats as a joke, according to a police report.
Acting on Limbaughs behalf, an employee called police, indicating Limbaugh wanted to prosecute. Later, the employee decided to document the incident rather than prosecute, the report said.
According to the report, the conservative radio talk show host received two threatening emails on Dec. 19. The employee told police that Limbaugh and his wife were concerned with the nature of the emails. The emails called Limbaugh a perv and a DEAD MAN, and threatened to kill Limbaugh and cut his wifes head off. Police traced the emails to a 46-year-old Cleveland man.
After researching the email account, police found it had been the source of numerous harassing emails to various people dating back to 2011, including one to Mark Steyn, who has guest hosted for Limbaugh.
