Charles Krauthammer will definitely not use his psychiatric background to comment on someone's mental state unless, of course, you ask him nicely. Then, ethics be damned, the Harvard Medical School graduate won't hesitate to diagnosis a stranger -- namely President Barack Obama -- from a distance.

Conservatives have been passing around a story on Twitter from the Washington Free Beacon, which has been doing great work unearthing new items from Hillary Clinton’s past. The paper found a 1971 letter from Clinton to radical socialist organizer Saul Alinsky.
Conservatives routinely attack LGBT non-discrimination laws as unnecessary, burdensome and threatening to religious liberty. But in state after state and city after city, their horror stories haven't come true.
Federal law still doesn't prohibit discrimination against LGBT people in private employment, housing, or public accommodations, despite widespread public support for such protections.
As a result, many city and state governments have taken to adopting their own non-discrimination measures.
