The First Debate: Pawlenty & Cain Win
Two winners came out of the South Carolina Republican Presidential Debate. Let me start this off by noting that Frank Luntz’s panel went for Herman Cain first and Rick Santorum second. Why? Their effective takedowns of Obama. In fact, Republican candidates need to note this, Santorum scored big tonight in his very effective take down of Obamacare. Now, to the real winners. The first winner | Read More »
Washington Post’s Greg Sargent Demands Unions Get Violent. Union Goons Attack Fox Reporter.
The Washington Post’s leftwing mouthpiece, Greg Sargent, who they ostensibly pay to be an objective reporter is on twitter demanding that unions in Wisconsin get violent to get their way. In what we can presume is unrelated to Greg Sargent’s call, a Fox News reporter was attacked by union thugs in Wisconsin. Once I pointed out on Twitter that Sargent was calling for unions to | Read More »
Now This Is Just Dumb
If you ever want to see how liberal pundits try to gin up division within conservative ranks, look no further than this bit of beclowning. Sean Hannity did not talk about Glenn Beck’s “Restoring Honor” rally on Sean Hannity’s show. Really. Apparently, because other Fox hosts did, Sean Hannity is supposed to do it too. I didn’t realize that Glenn and Sean had editorial control | Read More »
How’s That Glenn Beck Boycott Thingy Working Out?
I had to drive my four year old to art camp this morning. On the way home, I decided to indoctrinate my 18 month old and flipped over to Glenn Beck on XM. I began to wonder if Beck was still on Fox. I am typically in the car driving to Atlanta during the 5pm hour or I’m at City Council, so I don’t know | Read More »

White House attacks worry moderate Democrats
The White House’s attacks on Fox News, the Chamber of Commerce, Rush Limbaugh, etc. are making Democrats on Capitol Hill nervous. In particular, the Democrats who sit in districts John McCain won are incredibly nervous about these attacks. Jonathan Allen has an article today on it. This is perfect timing. Several of us were thinking it’d be fun to get these Democrats on record with | Read More »

Fun With Ratings: How’s that Boycott Against Beck Working Out?
I noticed Stu Burguiere of the Glenn Beck show point out something fascinating on Facebook: Olbermann 8pm + Maddow 9pm + Olbermann 10pm + Maddow 11pm + 109,000 other people = Beck at 5pm. So . . . um . . . how’s that boycott against Beck going? The one designed to get him off the air? Sure there have been some advertisers who fled. | Read More »
House Democrats Shut Out Fox News [UPDATED: No, it was God]
We’re digging around on this one. From what House Republicans are telling us, Nancy and the gang have turned Fox News off throughout the entire House of Representatives complex. UPDATE: Nope, wasn’t Nancy. It was God. From an email: Apparently a lightning strike took out some of the channels. It’s not just Fox News and Fox Business that got taken out (though, they are the | Read More »
