Exit Stage Left

Notorious left-wing demagogue Martin Bashir has resigned from MSNBC over his crude attack on Sarah Palin a few weeks back. I am no  fan of Palin. But Bashir, an obnoxious liberal talking head, was so over the line in his truly disgusting attack that he should have been sacked on the spot. Shame on MSNBC for its gutless response.

In other news, the Senate's darling of the political left, Elizabeth Warren announced today that she will not be running for President in 2016. She said that she intends to serve out her elected term of office in the Senate. The wailing from the anybody but Hillary wing of the progressive movement can be heard loud and clear. But FWIW I rather applaud Warren for resisting the temptation that every Washington Pol must at some point come under. I strongly suspect that at least half the Senate goes to bed every night humming Hail to the Chief.

That aside, she is wrong on about 90% of the issues.

Warren is currently promoting legislation that would require large banks to disclose their donations to political think tanks. I'm with her on that (as I'm sure Ad Orientem would be), and if she can get better results from working in the Senate, then by all means keep it up. She is proving to be a champion for increased financial regulations which is a good thing for all of us.

Her hostility to the banksters falls under the 10% where she is right.

How sad, I was really hoping for Warren...
