A roundup of the usual suspects

Her Heinous:
America's leaders don't have a vision, and the economy may be on the brink of collapse, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton said Sunday.

The chance to invest in a national energy policy may be lost because President Bush is looking the other way, and flaws in the American health-care system are going unaddressed, Clinton said.

But somehow, she manages to be hopeful.

Jailed "Brinks Radical" Wants Freedom:
A former radical serving 75 years in prison for the deadly 1981 robbery of a Brinks armored truck has asked to be released from prison.

She claims she was not given proper legal representation.

55-year-old Judith Clark filed a petition for habeas corpus yesterday in Federal District Court in Manhattan. Clark argues that the judge at her 1983 state trial violated the constitution when he granted Clark's request to serve as her own lawyer.
Prison's too good for Judy.

Alexandra Kerry - she's the horsefaced one. Er, she's the horsefaced one with the see through dress:
ALEXANDRA Kerry might not have made the most gracious presidential daughter. She waltzed into the Converse suite at the Motorola lodge and started demanding shoes. "The woman running the suite was helping someone else, but Alexandra didn't care," said our spy. "She just started pointing to all these shoes and saying really loudly, 'A 10! In those, those and those! Didn't you hear me? A 10!' " When the Converse woman told Kerry she didn't have her size, Kerry waggled her finger and sniffed, "I am NOT impressed with what's going on here." The woman sighed, "Well, then, you can leave — I am not impressed with you!"
The apple doesn't fall far from the tree, but she apparently hasn't learned Poppa's favorite line: "Do you know who I am?"

Babs Boxer:
Sen. Barbara Boxer says she is the real victim of last week's confirmation hearing for Secretary of State-designate Condoleezza Rice, yet continued yesterday to question the national security adviser's honesty.

"She turned and attacked me," the California Democrat told CNN's "Late Edition" in describing the confrontation during the Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing.
Someone get Her Wingnuttiness a big bandaid.
