    During the August 17 airing of NBC-Milwaukee’s Sunday Insight on WTMJ, host Charlie Sykes spoke to Michael Bloomberg’s unsuccessful involvement in the Milwaukee County Sheriff’s race by saying, “Thanks for stopping by Mike, don’t let the door hit you on the way out.”

    Hillary Clinton requires ‘presidential suite,’ stenographer for speaking engagements, report says
    Hillary Clinton has not yet announced whether she will be running for president in 2016, but a new report suggests that she has a taste for luxury to match any world leader.

    The Las Vegas Review-Journal obtained Clinton’s contract and related documents related to a scheduled October 13 speech at a University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) Foundation fundraiser. The documents show that Clinton received $225,000 to speak at the fundraiser, a discount from her initial $300,000 asking price. But the fee was only the first of Clinton’s many stipulations.

    The former Secretary of State insists on staying in the ‘presidential suite’ of a luxury hotel of her staff’s choice, with up to five other rooms reserved for her travel aides and advance staff. Clinton also reportedly requires that the Foundation provide a private plane. However, the jet can not be any private plane; only a $39 million, 16-passenger Gulfstream G450 “or larger” will do the job.

    “It is agreed that Speaker will be the only person on the stage during her remarks,” reads the contract for the event, which also requires that Clinton have final approval of all moderators or introducers.

    Also, according to her standard speaking contract, Clinton has to stay at the event no longer than 90 minutes and will pose for no more than 50 photos with no more than 100 people. There is no press coverage of video or audio taping of her speech allowed, with the only record allowed being made by a stenographer whose transcript is given to Clinton. The paper reports, however, that the stenographer’s $1,250 bill will be paid by the UNLV Foundation.

    • Also, the luxury hotel staff are required to address her as “Your Royal thighness Highness.”

        First we get stuck with an empty suit who fancies himself a king while a cold,calculating shrew is waiting in the wings to be crowned the next queen of the realm.She was like that long before the grifters first slithered into Washington.

    Former Vermont Sen. James Jeffords dies at 80
    MONTPELIER, Vt. — Former Vermont U.S. Sen. James Jeffords, who in 2001 tipped control of the Senate when he quit the Republican Party to become an independent, died Monday. He was 80.

    File this under:ISGAS (I scarcely give)
    In 2001,the senate was evenly divided and VP cheney was the deciding vote.The domocarts whined to yellow rat Trne Lott to ‘share committee chairmanships.’When Jeffords sold out his party for a chairmanship suddenly the dems weren’t interested in sharing anything.
    At least his grave will be well watered for some time to come.
