    THIS is objective reporting? MSM, is that what you think? Is that what you expect us to think?

    If so, you’re stupid stupid stupid. (Emphasis added) Palin headlines Va. rally alongside Allen, North Associated Press 06/27/10 10:05 AM EDT NORFOLK, VA. — Sarah Palin is speaking at a Norfolk rally for conservatives, with two heroes of Virginia’s Republican right serving as warm-up acts. The former John McCain running mate who bailed as Alaska’s governor to prosper politically and financially on the talk circuit | Read More »

    If Palin is warming up to Kathleen Parker, that move is a bit too cute for me

    Apparently, the Palins are now reaching out to Kathleen Parker. If they are…well, thanks for nothing, Sarah. Y’all remember Kathleen Parker? The conservative columnist who, in the middle of the 2008 Presidential campaign made a oh-so-noble-but-totally-implausible call for Sarah Palin to drop out of the race—again, right in the middle of it!—because she wasn’t qualified. Palin was supposed to say that she’d decided to spend | Read More »

    “Glee” just showed us how prescient John Nolte really is

    Nolte, the editor-in-chief of Breitbart’s Big Hollywood blog, is one of the harshest critics of Hollywood for its liberal bias.  One thing Nolte really dings Tinseltown for:  the cheap anti-conservative shots spread throughout TV and movie scripts. You’re sitting there, watching a movie, having a good time losing youself in the story line and enjoying the characters when BAM!  Some character makes a cheap, uncalled-for | Read More »

    Ace is right: give no charity to people who don’t deserve it

    I got a chuckle out of this story on Gateway Pundit, which made it appear that President Obama needed a teleprompter to address an elementary school class. Ace of Spades—the place where I saw the story originally—posted a clarification…as well as a retort that I think we should use, over and over again in the months ahead. Update: Apparently the teleprompter was set up for | Read More »

    Does anyone know if Brown has poll watchers lined up for Tuesday?

    A great, great movie is Martin Scorcese’s Gangs of New York, a story about 19th-century New York City. I’m reminded of Boss Tweed’s bit of wisdom from the movie—it doesn’t matter how many people vote, what matters is who counts the votes. I’m guessing (fearing, actually) that it will be mostly Democrats counting the votes on Tuesday. And checking voter IDs (if they even do | Read More »

    Ammo for the activist: Wikipedia’s climate entries shaped by…A Green Party activist!

    Greetings Redstate Activist.  Looking for just the right Christmas present for that earnest, naive voter who fears that Earth is overheating, due to the evil pollutants created by capitalism and the breath of Dick Cheney?  Courtesy of Canada’s Financial Times, I have just the thing:  an eye-opening expose. What’s the most widely-used reference source today, especially among tech-savvy young people?  Wikipedia of course.  So, if | Read More »

    Once again, we conservatives get kicked in the teeth

    Rush Limbaugh got treated unfairly, because no one—the NFL, the media—feel they have an obligation to treat him fairly.  If you’re on CNN, what’s the downside of lying about Rush Limbaugh’s quotes?  A tut-tutting critique by The Cleaner Howard Kurtz on Reliable Sources?  After which, it’s all forgotten because The Word is out among the chattering class to drop it and move on. Sadly, I | Read More »

    Chris Muir’s Present To David Axelrod, Chris Matthews and TPM…

    …the image of John Boehner as a shameless junketeer. Why is this bad? I can think of two ways, off the top of my head: 1) Very few people know John Boehner, and even fewer have yet to form an opinion of him. 2) If the House GOP hopes to make significant gains in 2010, it will need a leader the public thinks it can | Read More »

    Why can GOP staffers respond to Redstaters’ comments on their bosses’ front page stories here?

    Ref. mbecker’s RedHot today about GOP leaders’ drive-by/drive-away-and-don’t-look-back postings here…I agree to some extent with mbecker. Sorry for not putting this in the comments section of the appropriate Redhot diaries—those comments are closed (for now). I certainly want the leadership to keep posting here.  That adds value to this site, and it gives us a chance to respond directly to GOP leadership’s thoughts and opinions.  | Read More »

    To what extent does Palin have to pay those legal bills herself?

    From what I can tell, Palin’s legal bills stemming from this incessant stream of ethics charges are over half a million dollars. If she has to pay those bills herself, instead of the state of Alaska, IMO that’s reason enough to quit. So, in the interest of helping to focus the discussion, what’s the answer to this question: Is Sarah Palin personally responsible for seeing | Read More »
