Dumbest. New. York. Times. Editorial. Ever.
Demolished here. I read it and I think I am going to have an aneurysm. It’s amazing that Gail Collins is still employed by the Times after writing an article filled with complete claptrap. Apparently, quality control goes out the window just as long as the thrust of a particular editorial goes along with the general editorial line at the Times.
GOP Has Been Down This Road Before
This was the New York Times’ post-election analysis exactly 16 years ago today, Nov. 5, 1992, a day after Bill Clinton defeated President George H.W. Bush:The Democrats came out of the political wilderness on Tuesday. The Republicans entered it.The Democrats set aside all the self-doubts, the years of feeling on the wrong side of history, the election nights when the proud party of Roosevelt, Truman | Read More »
Useful Idiots Fifty Years Ago
We the People have a duty as voters on Tuesday, November 4, 2008. John McCain is well known from his years of service to our country for the last 55 years. Barack Obama is not so well known. There are some things we cannot know about Barack Obama because the State of Hawaii and major US newspapers have sealed the information. Vote for McCain/Palin as | Read More »
NYTimes Review of Books Hates Book on War Because no Gays are in it
It’s like dissing a toddler’s beginner science book because the theory of relativity isn’t discussed in exhaustive detail. It’s as foolish as trashing a comic book because the art isn’t of da Vinci quality. It’s as absurd as being mad because a Michael Moore movie isn’t any good or that a candy bar has too much chocolate in it. The review in the New York | Read More »
A great joke about Palin and the Media
Sorry for the poor quality of my diary, but let’s face it: right now a regular Joe’s diary has about the same chance of being read on Redstate as Bob Barr has of being elected President. I need to goose my stats!Just got this via email from a buddie:So, Sarah Palin’s advisors decide that it is time for her to meet a bunch of serious | Read More »
The New York Times spanks Chris Dodd for stonewalling.
I give them ten out of ten for yelling at him over this… Senator Dodd’s Notion of Courtesy After reports emerged in June about him having received favorable treatment on two home mortgages from the Countrywide Financial Corporation, Senator Christopher Dodd, a Democrat from Connecticut, promised that he would release documents to support his contention that he never benefited financially from the terms of the | Read More »
Three easy things McCain can do at the last debate to stay viable
I didn’t support you in the primary, Sen. McCain. As a matter of fact, you were probably my sixth choice. In no small part, this was because you had shown too much comity in the past toward people who hate my guts. You have only realized in recent days they hate you as well.One thing I never doubted, though, was that you loved your country | Read More »
And I find it kind of funny, I find it kind of sad…
Cross-posted on Right Michigan at www.RightMichigan.com.Nice to wake up on a Friday morning and to discover that the world is still every bit as backwards and maddening as it was when you went to bed Thursday night. Frankly, I’m not sure what I’d do if I ever woke up and found a sudden outbreak of sanity running roughshod over the state and across the newspaper | Read More »

**UPDATE**Don’t Be Fooled By The Lie That Obama Will Attack John McCain’s Keating 5 Involvement!
It has pretty well been proven that the Obama Campaign is indeed taking credit for the ads attacking McCain for a 20 year old non scandal for which he was aquitted. For those of you who haven’t read the post earlier…what follows is my thinking before I had the truth pointed out to me and serves as a prime example of why one should never | Read More »
They watched the debate at the New York Times
Perhaps the New York Times’ editors had asked Adam Nagourney and Jeff Zeleny to write something more-or-less objective about last night’s debate, and they are fine for the first several paragraphs, but then they slip into a bitter and disgruntled mode:Mr. McCain, in the kind of misstep that no doubt would have been used by Republicans against Mr. Obama, mangled the name of the Iranian | Read More »
The New York Times points out an Obama lie!
On Tuesday, John McCain’s top strategist Steve Schmidt described the New York Times as a “pro-Obama advocacy organization” (see Jeff’s piece and mine). He pointed out that the once-venerable paper was “no longer a standard news organization.” And he was right. And they might – perhaps, perhaps – have heard him.On their front page today, the Times reports something we thought we would never see | Read More »
Paging the New York Times: A **GREAT** Way to Save Money
The Huffington Post, blowing all pretense of being anything other than what it actually is, has taken to directly posting the daily DNC talking points.No reporting of them, no additional commentary, just cutting and pasting them as news items, which I guess will get the DNC talking points into Google News pretty directly.You guys ought to consider the same. Given your stock price and overhead, | Read More »
You’ll have to forgive day two of this. Last night I had a marathon city council session. The interstate through Macon is to be expanded and made safer. The arts and activist crowd that lives no where near the interstate is up in arms over the project because, dare I say it, it’ll bring more people driving through our beloved city.Meanwhile, Pleasant Hill, a neighborhood | Read More »
Top McCain adviser Steve Schmidt slams the New York Times
The New York Times reports today that McCain campaign manager Rick Davis pulled in $30,000/month from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac for five years. He ran an advocacy group which “current and former officials say” was created to “defend them against stricter regulations.” The writers, David Kirkpatrick and Charles Duhigg, accuse Davis of nothing illegal or unethical; rather, they’re sitting little bits of muddy insinuation | Read More »
Maureen Dowd: Superfluous Fiction, Supreme Storyteller
I’ve often been told that a great writer is capable of making the reader feel connected and empathetic for the protagonist irrespective of how. Fiction gives the writer amazing leverage in creating the story around the character to accomplish that empathetic end.Honesty, when the protagonist is real however, rarely makes for a spectacular “based on a true story” Lifetime movie.Such is the case here.Maureen pretends | Read More »
