Obama administration: It’s not war, it’s Kinetic Military Action!
Background: our adventure in Libya is apparently the War That Dare Not Speak Its Name. At least, the White House seems absolutely, completely determined to avoid the ‘war’ word, to the point where administration officials actually used the laugh-out-loud weasel term ‘kinetic military action‘ to describe the situation. ‘Kinetic’ is definitely the buzzword in play, here: Defense Secretary Gates himself said that if our ad | Read More »
Even Chris Matthews doesn’t listen to Chris Matthews. [edited]
(Via The Corner) Indeed, Mr. Barone [OOPS! York]: we knew that this was coming. Talking head Chris Matthews was instructed to take umbrage at Rush Limbaugh’s use of the term ‘regime’ to refer to this administration: “…The use of the word ‘regime’ in American political parlance is unacceptable, and someone should tell the walrus [Limbaugh] to stop using it.” Matthews didn’t stop there. “I never | Read More »
Oh, dear: Sharpton threatens to sue Limbaugh.
For defamation. Rev. Al Sharpton threatens to sue Rush Limbaugh over Wall Street Journal op-ed Say you’re sorry, Rush – or the the Rev. Al Sharpton is suing. The civil rights activist, angered by a Wall Street Journal op-ed piece written by Rush Limbaugh, threatened a defamation lawsuit Saturday against the conversative talk radio host. “Unless Mr. Limbaugh apologizes and clarifies his statements, attorneys for | Read More »
So, what’s the *most* offensive thing about this Chris Matthews clip?
This being the one where he wants Rush Limbaugh to, well, die: So. Is it… The aforementioned wants-Limbaugh-to-die bit? That the only reason that Chris Matthews is trying this is in the hope that going after Limbaugh will boost his ratings? Or that Chris Matthews thinks that Live and Let Die is a great film? I’m actually going to go with 3). Chris Matthews will | Read More »
Outrageously outrageous outrage* of the day: Rush Limbaugh electric car edition.
Rush Limbaugh drives over Al Gore. Twice. Which is a sign of professionalism, actually. As Hot Air’s own commenters note, most of us would have spent a considerably longer time running over the Cubslayer’s cardboard cutout. This makes more thematic sense: hit it once, back up and hit it again to make clear that this was deliberate, then go back to the race. And then | Read More »
That was my wife’s immediate response to my mentioning that Rush Limbaugh responded to Ms. Sykes‘ rather tawdry – and absolutely typical – attack on him by… not commenting on it at all. Bear in mind that my wife isn’t particularly political, doesn’t listen to talk radio (then again, neither do I), and more or less smiles and nods when I start blathering on and | Read More »
James Carville explicitly expressed a wish for Bush to fail.
Via Hot Air, the explicit quote: On the morning of Sept. 11, 2001, just minutes before learning of the terrorist attacks on America, Democratic strategist James Carville was hoping for President Bush to fail, telling a group of Washington reporters: “I certainly hope he doesn’t succeed.” [snip*] Minutes later, as news of the terrorist attacks reached the hotel conference room where the Democrats were having | Read More »
Lee Stranahan wishes to justify his antiwar position…
By now, you’ve probably read Stranahan’s little attempt at self-justification for cheering on the death of American troops (you can read it via Glenn Reynolds, if you must: it’s not worth the direct link to a pro-torture site*) by seeking to associate it to Limbaugh’s often-repeated observation that he wants Obama’s economic plans to fail. I’d just like to establish this point for the record: | Read More »
Sarah Palin will be on the Rush Limbaugh show at 1:30 PM today.
[http://www.rushlimbaugh.com/home/today.guest.html](Should be a thing.] Via Hot Air Headlines, and that’s all I know.
Well, Senator Obama, at least you don’t have to blame *yourself* for the bad timing.
I gotta admit, Senator Obama – or, more accurately, whoever came up with this for you – this was a pretty slick trap that you set. You go out and create an anti-McCain ad that’s a: exceptionally dishonest; b: insulting to both him and Rush Limbaugh; c: has the potential to remind the rest of the GOP about it’s internal immigration dispute; and d: – | Read More »
Rush and the Infamous Reid Letter.
Come, I will hide nothing from you: I don’t listen to Rush Limbaugh. I don’t listen to talk radio at all, really – although now that I know the trick (use IE instead of Firefox) I’ll be probably catching Erick’s show from time to time – and (just in case it wasn’t screamingly obvious by now) I’m a slightly different flavor of conservative than Rush | Read More »
