E.J. Dionne and the NPR Poll
E.J. Dionne, one of the single most annoying liberals on the planet, simply dismisses the NPR poll out of hand (it shows 49% re-electing their GOP Member of Congress, but only 34% re-electing the Dem) by calling it “preposterous:” “But the numbers in the NPR survey are so bad that Democrats might pause before becoming lemmings. There is something preposterous about how the administration and | Read More »
I Hope They Listen to Him
Memo to Democrats: Please, oh please listen to and heed E.J. Dionne’s advice from a commentary written for the Washington Compost. In “How to win an election, post-Obama,” Dionne lays out his own warped, convoluted way for Democrats to keep winning. It is so laughable and ignorant that with any luck the left will embrace his strategy to the nth power. Memo to Republicans: Begin | Read More »
Progressivism – Socialism’s Little Brother
The left is marching against free market capitalism and it is the responsibility of all conservatives to take up verbal arms against the progressive troops lining up to trash free markets. E.J Dionne, self proclaimed progressive, writes for the Washington Post today that there is something to the argument that Americans are all Socialists now, because “capitalist theory and practice were being toppled by an economic catastrophe | Read More »
And This Is What We Will Have To Put Up With For The Next Four Years (At Least)
By now, everyone knows about the flubbed Oath of Office. The President initially jumped in and cut off the Chief Justice while the latter was administering the oath, and then the Chief garbled the oath only moments later. This post pretty much captures the clumsy verbal pas de deux. It’s not the world’s biggest deal, the oath was taken, Barack Obama has been President since | Read More »
In Which I Am Amused (Part Deux)
Yousefzadeh’s Law Concerning the Popularity of Republican Presidents: After a Republican President leaves office, the more time passes, the greater the chances that the chattering classes of Washington will gain a Strange New Respect for said former Republican President, while lamenting that the current Republican Party cannot be like the former Republican President. This will be the case notwithstanding the fact that during the Presidency | Read More »
Does EJ Dionne have editors?
In this morning’s Washington Post, EJ Dionne, in a screed against the right, asks: Yet McCain’s own campaign is playing with powerful extremist themes to denigrate Obama. When his running mate, Sarah Palin, first brought up Obama’s association with 1960s radical Bill Ayers, who has become a centerpiece of McCain’s attacks, she accused Obama of “palling around with terrorists.” What other “terrorists” was she thinking | Read More »
E.J. Dionne Doesn’t Think Ahead When Putting Forth An Argument
To wit. You know, tossed-off comments like the one Dionne made are easily rebutted and dispensed with. One wonders why the Washington Post tolerates his continued presence on their editorial pages if he can’t form a more cogent, coherent and tough-minded argument. Does the Post think so little of its readers that it believes they can’t see through Dionne’s nonsense?
In a Just World, This Would Be The End of EJ Dionne
From today’s Best of the Web: A hilarious example of press bias against Palin occurred last FridayI on “The Diane Rehm Show,” a production of Washington’s WAMU-FM. The exchange between hostess Rehm, caller Tom of Norwich, Vt., and Washington Post columnist E.J. Dionne begins at about 46:10 of the “10:00 News Roundup”: ) Tom: I just wonder why not more has been made of the | Read More »
Daniel Mitchell Is A Generous And Good-Hearted Soul
He reads E.J. Dionne so that other people won’t have to.
