Lawyers invent bizarre new excuse… and it keeps a 16-year-old who killed 4 people out of prison

‘Affluenza’ is the new ‘temporary insanity’. A Texas teen killed four people while driving drunk, but his lawyers argued he was too rich and spoiled to know right from wrong.

Who do we want to be, America? Glenn re-visits an Ohio town that proves more gov’t doesn’t have to be the answer

Three years ago (nearly to the day), Glenn and his staff visited Wilmington, Ohio for his America’s First Christmas special. The trip was aimed at bringing awareness to the remarkable work Wilmington was doing to lift themselves out of hard times without government assistance.

PolitiFact Lie of the Year: “If you like your healthcare plan, you can keep it”

For the fourth time in five years, PolitiFact’s notorious ‘Lie of the Year’ involves President Obama’s signature healthcare law. This year, the President’s now infamous ‘If you like your plan, you can keep your plan’ took top honors. But is naming the President’s major gaffe its ‘Lie of the Year’ a major flip-flop for the organization? Glenn questions PolitiFact’s credibility HERE.

Jeffy is a creepy, creepy dude Jeffy, who is best known for an embarrassing live mic bathroom gaffe, drew the ire of Glenn by dragging his kids along to TheBlaze’s Dallas Christmas party last night.

Glenn, Pat, and Stu grilled Jeffy about his creepy behavior on radio this morning. WATCH
