Nancy Pelosi Needs to Step Down [Updated]
Surprise, surprise. Nancy Pelosi was for enhanced interrogation techniques before she was against them. This damning coverage by Fox News (hat tip to Redstate’s Moe Lane who wrote about this in an excellent column) reports that the CIA claims that Pelosi was briefed in 2002 about waterboarding and other enhanced interrogation techniques, which directly contradicts her previous story where she claims that she was not | Read More »
Question: If news isn’t reported, is it still news? Not according to the old media. The old axiom, ‘If it bleeds, it leads’, is still operative in most newsrooms around the country. Good news, if reported at all, is merely an afterthought. For the savvy news consumer, good news is recognized mainly through its absence. Just last week, headlines across the country reported the dire | Read More »

A Picture’s Worth a Thousand Words!
As most of my regular readers are aware, I recently wrote a diary about President Obama’s Apologolooza/America sucks tour throughout Europe and at the G-20 Summit titled, “Mr. President, Do You Believe In American Exceptionalism?”. (Actually, it was his second Apologolooza world tour–we all remember the famous Berlin trip last summer during the general election where Obama apologized for America to the Germans, right?) Well, | Read More »
This Guy Pretty Much Says It All.
Promoted by Caleb … Why aren’t Sheehan and the like called extremists for protesting but veterans are? GOOD QUESTION! It’s really too bad that the media won’t cover this video from Midnight Blue. But hey, it’s probably for the best with him being a “right-wing extremist” (translation-veteran) and all, right? This diary is cross-posted on The Minority Report.

www.thepoliticalclass.com Jackie Chan beats up Alec Baldwin and becomes new leader of Hollywood liberals Jackie Chan didn’t really beat up Alec Baldwin.

www.thepoliticalclass.com NBC writers agree with Rush Limbaugh’s statement on how wealthy people got their money. Millions of Americans tuned last week to watch the Series Finale of ER. I’m not someone that watches this TV show but I did catch an interesting part of this final episode. One of ER’s main characters is Dr. Carter.

Tea Parties? What Tea Parties?
I use FireFox for my internet browser because it has cool features. One of the coolest (in my non-techie, non-cutting edge opinion) is an add-in called Brief. It is a subscription based RSS headline reader so I can see headlines from all sorts of sources in one place. I subscribe to a bunch of newspapers (more on that later) and a bigger bunch of blogs. | Read More »
Leftys Now Arresting Journos Who Question Them
Breitbart News is reporting on a journalist who was videotaped being arrested by USC officers for asking why Katie Couric was being given an award there. It appears that such questions are an “unlawful” violation of the leftist establishment’s unwritten code, which apparently trumps the US Constitution, the State Constitution, and over 200 years of court precedents. The arresting officers seem to be confused about | Read More »
Carry The TEA Parties On!
There is only ONE WAY to make CHANGE. That is through transactions. The TEA Parties and those Patriots who attended them and stood their ground, now need to take action. BOYCOTT EVERY ADVERTISER WHO ADVERTISES ON EVERY LIBERAL SOCIALIST NEWS MEDIA OUTLET. If the numbers who turned out for TEA Parties could be mobilized to boycott those advertisers, the remaining CHANGE from those transactions would | Read More »
Seriously, how long can the media last as a parody of themselves?
As many of you know, I usually don’t comment on current events, leaving it in the very capable hands of Moe, Warner, and the rest of you. But I am fascinated by the underlying forces that shape those events, especially when they come together to illustrate a greater truth. A few days ago, Jonah Goldberg posted a piece of satire from the Onion: WASHINGTON—More than a | Read More »
