‘Rally to Promote Comedy Central & Democrats Except Not Necessarily in That Order’ Open Thread; Updated

By Doug Powers  •  October 30, 2010 12:43 PM

**Written by Doug Powers Comedy Central’s coverage is underway. Oprah and Arianna paid for hundreds of buses to ship people in, because if there’s one thing that makes a rally really hit home, it’s extra astroturf. The AP has perhaps the most hilarious repetition of the organizers’ talking points: WASHINGTON – People assembled by the […]

**Written by Doug Powers Hillary Clinton’s State Department is getting tough on Iran, as U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for Public Affairs Philip Crowley demonstrates: If that doesn’t convince Mahmoud, the State Department’s Teddy-Gram with the “Bear-hugs for you if you start being nicer” note should do the trick. This is being reported as a […]

New Black Panther thugs head back to polls; Democrat panelist blocks Civil Rights Commish report

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 29, 2010 07:24 PM

They’re baaaaaaack. Before the Philly New Black Panther Party radicals showed up at a voting booth in 2008 with billy clubs and racial epithets at the ready, my old nemesis Malik Shabazz — the NBPP thug-in-chief — put out a nationwide warning. Remember? “We will be at the polls in the cities and counties in […]

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 29, 2010 11:32 AM

Scroll for updates… Looks like there has been a coordinated attack on UPS planes worldwide today. Reports are breaking on a Yemen-Chicago plane stopped in London with a bomb on board. Planes also pulled over in Newark and Philadelphia. Wild guess: It wasn’t planned by a Catholic or Mormon network. (Sarcasm off.) Which MSNBC host […]

Terror in the Beltway: Marines, military targeted

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 29, 2010 09:56 AM

The wall-to-wall campaign coverage has distracted me from noting several terrifying shootings in the Beltway area — all targeting the military and specifically, the Marines. The shooter is apparently on the loose with a high-powered rifle. Earlier in the week, there were three incidents: he FBI said on Thursday that it has linked a shooting […]

Standing tall: The rise & resilience of conservative women

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 29, 2010 09:39 AM

My column today pays tribute to some of the conservative women on the campaign trail who have not only weathered the nastiest ad hominem attacks, but who have risen above them with amazing grace. Is it any wonder that women are abandoning the Democrat Party? Readers of this blog have known that women played a […]

John Kerry: America is in a Period of ‘Know-Nothingism’

By Doug Powers  •  October 28, 2010 10:45 PM

**Written by Doug Powers John Kerry’s list of significant epochs in world history: –Upper Cambrian –Lower Permian –Middle Jurassic –Paleocene –Gigolocene –Know Nothing (Late 2010-?)

The Gawker smear machine: A refresher course; Update: O’Donnell responds

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 28, 2010 05:25 PM

If you’re a longtime reader of this blog, you know all about the Gawker smear machine and its misogynist war on conservative women. Under Gawker Media boss Nick Denton, barrel-scraping blog Wonkette published racist, sexist crap like this: And manufactured smears like this. In 2008, it was lying Gawker that published Sarah Palin’s hacked private […]

Behar: So what? I call all my close friends “bitches”

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 28, 2010 02:29 PM

There is no “apology.” So I’m not sure why Mediaite headlines its latest Joy Behar video, “Joy Behar Apologizes For Calling Sharron Angle ‘Bitch;’ Says It’s ‘A Term Of Endearment.’ In fact, the non-”apology” shows that in addition to being a foul-mouthed, spewing shrew, Behar is also an inveterate coward who won’t take responsibility for […]

Who will “Asian Americans” vote for? Speak for yourself, Mike Honda

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 28, 2010 01:07 PM

Post-racial America, we hardly knew you. On the heels of California Democrat Rep. Loretta Sanchez screeching about “the Vietnamese” and GOP challenger Van Tran trying to “take away” her seat in the year’s most embarrassing ethnic card implosion, you would think other California minority politicians would forsake such poisonous identity politics. Nope, not a chance. […]

Old logo: New logo: Photoshop credit: Commenter jeffjackie Via Dan Collins, did taxpayer bailed-out Bank of America give the Democrat Party a sweetheart election-year loan?

Caught: Michael Bennet campaign tries to spoon-feed media; Updated

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 27, 2010 01:23 PM

Colorado Democrat Senate candidate Michael Bennet has been getting plenty of help from the liberal media in his tight race with GOP upstart Ken Buck. But not everyone in the media is willing to play along. The hosts of KOA’s morning show in Denver, Steffan Tubbs and April Zesbaugh, made public an e-mail from the […]

AFL-CIO: Limited government activists hold “cultish beliefs;” Tancredo calls for 10th amendment revolution

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 27, 2010 12:43 PM

Richard Trumka is at it again. Via the Labor Union Report, the AFL-CIO is attacking 10th amendment activists for their “cultish beliefs” in constitutional government. Their partners in slime? Soros-funded Think Progress, of course: Most cults are based in some sort of skewed spiritual vision or the worship of a charismatic leader, but there is […]

The Left’s voter fraud whitewash

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 27, 2010 09:14 AM

My column today builds on Monday’s voter fraud round-up and spotlights left-wing efforts to demonize citizen election watchdogs. New developments since I filed the piece yesterday: Dingy Harry turns to election bribery. Guess who’s operating Las Vegas voting booths? Rhymes with S-E-I-U. Chicagoans are plagued by a botched vote-by-mail system. In Minnesota, charges are still […]
