Liz n' Dick's 'Private Lives'
Huffington Post - over 3 years
"Miss Taylor swept into Tavern-on-the-Green on the arm of her latest escort, Victor Luna. She wore a low-cut, white beaded gown, massive jewels at her neck, a tiara, and was wrapped in what seemed to be thousands of white feathers. It was not an outfit in which one could disappear!" That was part of my "Live at Five" NBC-TV report on the opening night of the Liz n' Dick show, known to the public as a revival of "Private Lives," back in 1983. Elizabeth regally reigned at her table. Richard sat apart with his fiancée Sally Hay, glum. (Well, he'd been glum ever since he gave up drinking some years before.) • This was a dodgy time for the former Burtons. After two marriages to each other, two failed attempts apart (John Warner for Liz, Suzy Hunt for Richard.) Burton was treading water as a star. Miss Taylor had triumphed on Broadway in "The Little Foxes" in 1981, and though her movie career was just about over, the media madness that always surrounded her never abated. Now the ...

Adrian Grenier: Taking the Piss Out of Climate-Change-Denying Congressmen
The Huffington Post - over 3 years
After the recent UN findings on climate change, it was hard not to become intrigued all over again with climate change deniers. In one recent analysis, there were three types of deniers identified: The first are strategic deniers -- people who have a vested interest in, say, the oil industry; the second are people who just can't wrap their heads around the issue, so there's a cognitive dissonance going on and they deny out of fear; and the third are just plain deniers -- they simply don't believe climate change is real. At SHFT, we find it pretty astonishing that in our world of unprecedented access to information, science and technology well over 100 members of the United States Congress are climate change deniers. These congressmen are of the first variety -- the strategic deniers -- and have probably encountered a lobbyist or two in their tenure. As it turned out, we were recently invited by the League of Conservation Voters and Organizing for Action to help produ ...

25 Republicans Who Supported Obamacare Before Obama
Mother Jones - over 3 years
Republicans have pulled out all the stops to kill Obamacare, the president's landmark health care law that requires every American to purchase health insurance by 2014. There have been lawsuits; there have been bills (40 in the House so far); there has been a Supreme Court case—all aimed at rolling back a law that that the GOP says is an assault on individual liberty. Now, with only a few more months to go until the individual mandate—the requirement that we all have coverage—kicks in, Republicans are frantic; some are even threatening to force the United States to default on its debts if Democrats don't agree to delay the law. This is odd because the individual mandate, the cornerstone of Obamacare, was originally a conservative idea. It was first proposed by the Heritage Foundation in 1989. And scores of Republicans—not just Mitt Romney—have backed the idea in the past couple of decades. Here are some of the GOPers who supported Obamacare before Obama: 1. Rick Santorum? The A ...

Peter Dreier: The Koch Brothers Are My Brothers
Huffington Post - over 3 years
I just discovered that the Koch brothers are my brothers. I learned about our extraordinary kinship through a brief article in the New Republic, which mentioned that Charles Koch, and his younger twin brothers David and William, were members of the Beta Theta Pi fraternity at MIT. I was a Beta at Syracuse University (Class of 1970). And it is well known that all Betas are brothers, forever. I admit that I haven't stayed in touch with my Syracuse frat brothers or paid much attention to Beta happenings, but learning about my kinship with the Koch brothers has reawakened my fraternal feelings. So if I ever run into Charles (MIT 1957) or David (MIT 1962) at one of their regular Palm Springs get-togethers for the ultra-conservative wing of the .001 percent, I'll make sure to give them the secret handshake, quietly mutter "Phi Kai Phi" (Beta's secret slogan, although I can't remember what it means), and sing a few refrains of one of the fraternity's drinking songs, "I'm ...

Ian Thompson: The Good, Bad, and Ugly for Religious Liberty and LGBT Rights in Defense Bill
Huffington Post - over 3 years
A sure sign of early summer in Washington, besides the sticky, humid air, is the House and Senate Armed Services Committees kicking off the annual process to pass the defense authorization bill, known as the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). The bill always touches on a range of important ACLU issues, primarily those at the intersection of national security and civil liberties, and, this year, sexual assault in the military. But, we, as the ACLU lobbyists who focus on freedom of religion and belief and LGBT rights, weren't left out of this annual summertime rite. Here are a few of the things we saw -- good, bad, and ugly. The Good The Senate Armed Services Committee-adopted bill includes a provision authored by Sen. Mark Udall (D-Colo.) that would repeal the military's prohibition on some expressions of private, consensual intimacy (defined in Article 125 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice as "unnatural carnal copulation") by both opposite-sex and same-sex ...

The Center for Public Integrity: Air show lobbyists to buzz Capitol Hill

Sam Nunn, Max Cleland in Chuck Hagel’s corner; Chambliss appears skeptical
ajc - about 4 years
WASHINGTON – The supporting cast for Secretary of Defense nominee Chuck Hagel has a notable Georgia twang. Behind the scenes, former Georgia Democratic U.S. Sen. Max Cleland is working to build support for his fellow Vietnam War veteran and former Senate colleague. Cleland, who lost his seat in 2002 to Saxby Chambliss, was in the front row for Thursday morning’s confirmation hearing before the Armed Services Committee but declined to comment as Hagel’s nomination is still pending. Seated next to Hagel was former Georgia Democratic U.S. Sen. Sam Nunn, who once chaired the committee. Nunn and former Armed Services chair John Warner, a Virginia Republican, introduced Hagel and lent bipartisan and powerful backing for the nominee. Senators tend to respect powerful former senators. Hagel, a former Republican senator from Nebraska, has been a controversial pick on the left and the right – his alleged sins include insufficient backing of Israel and insensitivity toward gays. …

WASHINGTON — The Senate overwhelmingly confirmed President Barack Obama's choice of five-term Sen. John Kerry to be secretary of state, with Republicans and Democrats praising him as the ideal successor to Hillary Rodham Clinton. The vote Tuesday was 94-3.

    More Details Hide Details Warner's vote gave a retroactive, nine-year immunity to U.S. officials who authorized, ordered, or committed acts of torture and abuse, permitting the use of statements obtained through torture to be used in military tribunals so long as the abuse took place by December 30, 2005. Warner's "compromise" (approved by a Republican majority) authorized the President to establish permissible interrogation techniques and to "interpret the meaning and application" of international Geneva Convention standards, so long as the coercion falls short of "serious" bodily or psychological injury. Warner maintains that the new law holds true to "core principles" that the U.S. provide fair trials and not be seen as undermining Geneva Conventions.

  • 2004
    On June 15, 2004, Warner was among the minority of his party to vote to expand hate crime laws to include sexual orientation as a protected category.
    More Details Hide Details He supports a constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage, but he raised concerns about the most recent Federal Marriage Amendment as being too restrictive, as it would have potentially banned civil unions as well.

Warner and others who voted against the article angered many Republicans by their position. However, unlike Snowe, Collins, Specter, Jeffords and Chafee, the rest of the Republicans voted guilty on the second article. As was the case in 1990, Warner faced no Democratic opposition in 2002, winning re-election to a fifth term in the Senate by a landslide over an independent candidate.
  • TEENAGE
  • 1987
    In 1987, Warner was one of the few Republicans who voted to reject the nomination of Robert Bork by President Ronald Reagan and the only Southerner to do so.
    More Details Hide Details
  • 1984
    Warner was re-elected easily in 1984 and 1990, and faced his first real challenge for re-election in 1996 from political newcomer Democrat Mark Warner (no relation).
    More Details Hide Details Mark Warner was a millionaire who vastly outspent the incumbent and produced an unusually close election, but John Warner prevailed with 52% of the vote. According to George Stephanopoulos, a former close aide to President Bill Clinton, Warner was among top choices to replace Les Aspin as the Secretary of Defense in the Clinton administration. However, President Clinton selected William Perry. During Clinton second term William Cohen of Maine, another moderate Republican Senator, held this position.
  • CHILDHOOD
  • 1978
    Following Ford's defeat, Warner began to consider political office for himself. He entered politics in the 1978 Virginia election for U.S. Senate.
    More Details Hide Details Despite the publicity of being Elizabeth Taylor's husband and the large amounts of money Warner used in his campaign for the nomination, he finished second at the state Republican Party (GOP) convention to the far more conservative politician Richard D. Obenshain. Much of this loss was due to his perceived liberal political stances, especially his soft approach to Soviet relations. In contrast Obenshain was a noted anti-Soviet, a hardline anti-communist, and an opponent of other liberal policies including the Great Society and much of the Civil Rights Movement. However, fate intervened when Obenshain died two months later in a plane crash. Consequently, Warner was chosen to replace him and narrowly won the general election over Democrat Andrew P. Miller, former Attorney General of Virginia. He was in the Senate until January 3, 2009. Despite his less conservative policy stances, Warner managed to be the second longest-serving senator in Virginia's history, behind only Harry F. Byrd, Sr., and by far the longest-serving Republican Senator from the state. On August 31, 2007, Warner announced that he would not seek re-election in 2008.

He was subsequently appointed by Gerald Ford to the post of Director of the American Revolution Bicentennial Administration.
