Andrew Malcolm on Condi Rice, Paul Ryan and What to Expect from Mitt Romney Tonight
On today’s edition of Coffee and Markets, Brad Jackson and Ben Domenech are joined by Andrew Malcolm to discuss the Republican convention so far, Paul Ryan’s speech, and Andrew’s guess for tonight’s mystery speaker.
Pale Horse, Puny Rider
MSNBC and the rest of hopelessly leftist media lost something when they fired Keith Olbermann. There were moments such as the night Keith covered Scott Brown’s victory over Martha Coakley that I was convinced it was excellent self-parody. John Stewart can do funny artificial news but Keith just went out and killed it!*
So watching the likes of Chris Matthews, Juan Williams and Chuck Todd try and fill the void is sort of akin to watching AA Ball after an evening of seeing the Yanks play live. But the effort and determination to demonize the GOP is still there! You and 99% of the rest of America probably aren’t watching, but these guys know exactly which lines The Minister of Propaganda want them to trumpet. Only the idiots who vandalized Mia Love’s Wikipedia page have played the Race-Card in a more laughable fashion.

Notes on Night One of the Convention
Maybe it’s the policy junkie in me, but I found much of last night’s Republican convention to be vapid and devoid of substance. There wasn’t a lot of discussion of specific conservative principles and how they contrast boldly to Obama’s policies. There wasn’t a lot of red meat missiles aimed at Obama either, even though his presidency has offered a plethora of opportunities. I’m not | Read More »

Romney takes an early lead
Romney takes an early lead over President Obama. The FOX News poll released Friday, Romney leads Obama 46% to 44%. The Rasmussen Reports 2012 Daily Presidential Matchup Tracking poll has Romney leading Obama 48% to 43%. After Santorum suspended his presidential campaign on Monday, the Tuesday Rasmussen Matchup poll had Romney and Obama tied at 45% each. It remained tied through Wednesday.

Hilary Rosen Thrown Under Bus for Denigrating Ann Romney and Moms, But She Only Said What Democrats Believe
I’ve had this post started in drafts since yesterday morning. But, you know, was busily “just being a mom” and all. Eating my bon-bons and swilling my chilled Riesling took far longer than expected. Now it’s the next morning and I’m already so darn tired. If only I had a “real job” and “worked a day in my life” instead of this mom stuff. Still, | Read More »
Does the Catholic League Use Colons?
I’m not sure if this is a parody account or not. If it is legitimate, I presume the Catholic League twitter account holder does not use colons in tweets going back to at least April 2nd because his head is so far up his rear end he’s blocking his own colon. I’m referring to this bit of hate in its twitter feed. Today while the | Read More »
On Ann Romney and Hilary Rosen and the War on Women
This has been the typical response of Romney supporters on twitter for my role in “L’Affair Rosen” on CNN last night: JoiseyCop: For you to sit by and let Hillary Rosen slander Ann Romney without challenge shows you be the phony piece of dog shit you are ! @EWErickson I’d mentioned I missed the remark, still dwelling on a previous remark along with some IFB | Read More »
If Raising The Romney’s Five Kids Involved Work, The Obama Administration Would Underpay Her For It.
For a while I was just stunned to learn that the terrific, sensitive, caring and wonderful President who gave America The Lilly Ledbetter Act was deliberately and systematically underpaying his female employees. That was until Hillary Rosen filled us in on what the Obama White House really thinks about “The Little Woman.”
Democrats Now Say They Never Said ‘War Against Women’?
If you went to bed oblivious of the news last night, there was a mini-bruhaha over a comment Hilary Rosen, the former head of the RIAA and a DNC Advisor, made to Anderson Cooper on AC360 last night. I was on AC360 with both Hilary and Paul Begala. Hillary said that Ann Romney, a mother of five sons who has had breast cancer and MS, | Read More »
