Every Self-Respecting Human Being Should Hope Sean Eldridge Is Humiliated in November

If Sean Eldridge didn’t exist, conservatives would have to invent him. He is a self-parody of everything self-respecting human beings find obnoxious about politicians. He is fabulously wealthy, thanks to his decision to marry Mark Zuckerberg’s college roommate, Chris Hughes. The couple owns a pair of $2,500 nautical binoculars, which they presumably use to gaze down on commoners from their trendy loft in SoHo. Eldridge (i.e., Hughes) is the largest donor to his own campaign.

Sean Eldridge is a carbetbagging feudal lord who has spent the last several years chain-buying mansions in New York’s Hudson River Valley in an effort to find a Congressional district that might elect him, and establishing a modern day fiefdom as a means to buy loyalty and votes with his husband’s money. He is more entitled and self-important than Sandra Fluke, who at least had the humility to initiate her political ambitions at the state level. He won’t even commit to stay in his current district (NY-19) if he loses.

Yes, Hillary Clinton Has a Mitt Romney Problem

New York Times reporter turned New York magazine blogger Annie Lowrey thinks people should shut up already about Hillary Clinton’s insatiable appetite for money and the sense of enjoyment and entitlement she presumably gets every time she disembarks a Gulfstream jet on the way to her presidential suite near some publicly funded university that’s paying her five times the median income to give a one-hour speech to a room full of rich people.

Hillary Clinton and the Beclowning of the American Left

If Hillary Clinton wants the Democratic nomination in 2016 (and why wouldn’t she, given that basically everything she’s ever done since roughly 1975, when she agreed to defend a child rapist as a “favor” for an Arkansas prosecutor, has been calculated to maximize her political power and/or personal fortune?) it would seem to be hers for the taking.

No matter what. There is not a damn thing committed liberals—the ones whose primary consideration for choosing a president is something other than “That would be really cool because she’s a woman”—can do about it. Is there?

The Clinton Empire Grows Larger by the Day

That Hillary's so hot right now.

Not unlike the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, the Clinton Political Empire (CPE) is expanding and radicalizing, Politico’s Ken Vogel reports.

In what was described as “a major power play,” Clinton minion and loyal Free Beacon reader David Brock is taking over as head of the allegedly nonpartisan (but actually left-wing) watchdog group, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW). Brock was elected chairman of the group last week “after laying out a multifaceted expansion intended to turn the group into a more muscular—and likely partisan—attack dog,” Vogel writes.

Aging Columnist Lashes Out at Free Beacon

Modo's future?

Another aging feminist has attacked the Washington Free Beacon in a column published in a major publication, the Free Beacon has learned.

On Tuesday, New York Times columnist and amateur pothead Maureen Dowd lashed out at the anti-Clinton website for its “nasty cracks” about Hillary Clinton’s advanced age. (Context: Dowd, 62, is four years younger than Clinton.)

Carpetbaggers Gonna Carpetbag

Sean Eldridge, who became fabulously wealthy by marrying Mark Zuckerberg’s roommate, really wants to be a member of Congress. Eldridge’s husband, Chris Hughes, has purchased multiple mansions in multiple congressional districts in New York in an effort to make this happen. In his current district (NY-19), Eldridge has sought to establish a modern-day feudal system in order to secure the support of the local commoners.

But if Eldridge fails to win his race against incumbent Chris Gibson (R., N.Y.), a life-long resident of the district, he probably won’t stick around. He was asked at a recent campaign event in Hillsdale, N.Y., whether he planned to stay in the 18th district even if he lost, but failed to give a direct answer. Instead, Eldridge said he was “very much committed to the Hudson Valley,” a region that includes the town of Garrison in the neighboring 18th congressional district, where the wealthy couple owns another mansion, and where Hughes currently lists his address on campaign finance reports.
