In which I interject myself into Political Punch’s comments section controversy.
Via Ace of Spades HQ, I notice that there were some fairly serious allegations made about Jake Tapper’s Political Punch the other day. The very short version? That the blog was deleting conservative comments while letting liberal ones go. That’s a pretty serious allegation – and that’s speaking as somebody with a reputation for cheerfully and publicly replacing troll posts with McCain/Palin campaign ads. So | Read More »
Stop Sweating Over Palin
I don’t know what it is. Perhaps it’s a mindset. Perhaps it’s the way they talk but underestimating people like Palin and where she comes from is a failing that just never seems to be corrected no matter how many times experts’ assumptions are proven wrong. I’m going to let you in on a little secret. Country-folk like Palin will allow you to think you’re | Read More »
Keeping the MSM Honest: “Life long Democrats” are NOT Swing Voters
Cross-posted on Right Michigan at www.RightMichigan.com. This morning’s Detroit News features an article detailing the return of the “Reagan Democrats” and the importance Michigan’s independent and cross-over voters have as we help elect the next leader of the free world. There’s a picture of a burly looking Macomb County man, scraggly hair and blue jeans, sitting in front of his big black motorcycle, because apparently | Read More »

Gwen Ifill: VP Debate Moderator, Obama Shill.
You know, Michelle Malkin and I don’t actually agree on all that much, but we do agree on this: it is perhaps not the most objective thing in the world to have as one’s VP debate moderator a woman who has written a book entitled “Breakthrough: Politics and Race in the Age of Obama.”. Particularly when it’s scheduled to come out on 01/20/2009. (Via Hot | Read More »
CNN poll showing Obama won debate weighted 14% plus Dems
Well we all know by know that the debate is only a sideshow the real war is in the spin afterward. Perhaps that is why CNN showed a debate poll showing Obama winning the debate by a large margin. Of course that is easy to understand when you know that the poll had 41% Dems, 27% Rep From Newsbusters Everybody is talking about this poll | Read More »
Michael Halperin Wants To Have Obama’s Baby
Our old friend Mark Halperin is at it again. After spending much of the 2004 campaign with his eyes locked on Democrat talking points as firmly as his lips were bonded to John Kerry’s posterior, Halp-less has released his ‘analysis’ of last night’s debate. (see http://www.time.com/time/printout/0,8816,1845106,00.html) There are echoes throughout of the infamous October 2004 memo, where young Mark directed the ABC news organization to | Read More »
Palin v. Biden: Who’s the real ticket-killer?
“Mainstream media” (MSM) never was an accurate representation of what this country’s major print and broadcast news sources are and what they do. “Mainstream” is defined, when used as an adjective, as “representing the prevailing attitudes, values and practices of a society or group.” The media, as a group, certainly has a set of prevailing attitudes, values and practices, but they are not those of | Read More »

Dems Bailout Proposal Redirects ‘Paulson’s Profits’ To Left-Wing Groups
Bush told the country that we are in an economic crisis and his Treasury Secretary, Henry Paulson, came up with an idea that would, it is claimed, end up actually making money for the U.S. Treasury in the long run. That’s all well and good, but the Democrats already have a plan to siphon off any repayment of the people’s money back to the treasury | Read More »
Latest example of the AP in the tank for Obama
Here is a story from the AP today about the meetings yesterday. Dems, some in GOP question McCain’s intervention By CHARLES BABINGTON, Associated Press Writer Fri Sep 26, 2:09 AM ET WASHINGTON – Sen. John McCain’s self-portrait as a bold leader willing to set politics aside to save an endangered financial bailout plan took a pounding Thursday from top Democrats and even some fellow Republicans. | Read More »
A Tale of Two Vettings
In response to Stanley Kurtz’s detailed story on Barack Obama’s role in working with unrepentant terrorist and left-wing radical Bill Ayers to arrange the financing for a project that “poured more than $100 million into the hands of community organizers and radical education activists” under Ayers’ dubious theory of treating left-wing political activism as “education” (a story I discussed at length here), Marc Aimbinder wants | Read More »
In Defense of Redstate…..
In today’s New York Times, columnist Nicholas Kristof wrote an op-ed about how Republicans are trying to “otherize” Barack Obama by playing up rumors of him being a secret Muslim or even the anti-Christ. In his column today, Kristof listed Redstate (along with Jerome Corsi) as one of the Republican institutions that was attempting to “otherize” Obama with the secret Muslim/anti-Christ rumors. Kristof even placed | Read More »
AP: We’re above the law.
If media elites wonder many of us “common folk” take much of what we read, watch or hear with skepticism one might look no further than the actions taken by the Associated Press after the hacking of Sarah Palin’s personal email account.
Help me out, here.
I’m not familiar with John Friedman, so I don’t know if this little bit from CBS News online is intended seriously or tongue-in-cheek: Gibson, as dignified a newsperson as America has now, treated Palin fairly and didn’t resort to hectoring her with “gotcha” questions, either. Palin’s supporters may be chagrined that their candidate didn’t sound more self-assured or expert when she discussed Alaska’s relationship to | Read More »
The Twilight of Decency
Conservatives are used to dealing with the drive by media, as Rush Limbaugh likes to refer to them. We are used to having our policies, ideas, philosophies, and leaders under the meat cleaver of the rabid rhetoric of Rolling Stone Magazine, CNN, NBC, the Washington Post and the New York Times. The last two weeks, however, have confirmed our worst fears as objective, educated Americans: | Read More »
