Real stories of the lie-way patrol
Last we heard from former Bush speechwriter-turned-Washington Post line columnist Michael Gerson, he was attacking Tea Party activists and yours truly for criticizing his old boss/mentor Karl Rove’s Christine O’Donnell-bashing. See: Rove aide: Kneel before The Architect, you puny website operators & Tea Party ingrates. Well, Rove’s Beltway water boy took to his WaPo perch […]
The times they are a-changin’ — and it’s ladies of the Right who are kicking ass and naming names. Five items for your viewing and reading pleasure: * Jeri Thompson smacks GOP poobahs and pooh-pooh-ers upside the head: While they may not be intending to be sexist, the message, the attitude and whining sure make […]
Dial U for unhinged.
Navigating the nutroots.
Update 4pm Eastern. Radar talks to Fred Thompson rep Mark Corallo, who seems to shoot down rumors of a Rove jump to the campaign. Update: Video highlights and a parting shot. Update: Press conference at 11:35am. Update: 11:25am Eastern. The President is talking about Rove’s family “making huge sacrifices. We’re going to be friends for […]
For a hearty lunchtime chuckle: Check out my interview with Ron Ott of Coptix, one of the masterminds behind the April Fools’ joke that caused a Rove Derangement Syndrome feeding frenzy.
A rant by Cindy Sheehan, posted by defeatist David Swanson on his website advocating the impeachment of President Bush: More Reich-Wing Horse Pucky The Gathering of Eagles is supposedly a veterans’ ad hoc group who are allowing themselves to be despicably stage-managed by Rove and Move America Forward using fascist tactics to lie about an […]
“Blogmaster” Amanda Marcotte has resigned from the Edwards’ campaign (the site is currently down). Of course, it’s all the right wing’s and Catholic activists’ fault (a blame-avoidance strategy I highlighted on The O’Reilly Factor tonight before news of Marcotte’s resignation broke). Writes Marcotte this evening: I was hired by the Edwards campaign for the skills […]
Remember the new Congressman from Wisconsin who took great pride in the fact that he greeted Laura Bush in Green Bay and deliberately called her “Barbara”? (oooooooh, BURN!) White House official says no, that didn’t happen. Now Congressman Kagen has climbed down a bit. Now that Kagen’s longer story about his White House visit is […]
And now, another PSA from See-Dubya: Tinfoil-hat syndrome can affect earnest, sincere lefties anywhere, at any time. Wherever progressives gather, whether in a hotel lobby in Vegas, or now at a protest on a beach near San Francisco, you never know when the spontaneous, irresistible urge to swaddle one’s noggin in tinfoil will strike. Won’t […]
I had to read it several times to make sure it was genuine, but it really is true: Washington Post columnist David Broder calls out the left-wing media for its Rove Derangement Syndrome: For much of the past five years, dark suspicions have been voiced about the Bush White House undermining its critics, and Karl […]
US Senate candidate Ned Lamont of Connecticut, darling of the left-wing blogosphere, is now running as fast as he can from the nutball bloggers who have zealously promoted his campaign against Sen. Joe Lieberman from its inception. (Today’s Vent gives the overview.) And he’s lying through his teeth in his effort to rid himself of […]
***update: I’m scheduled to talk about the Raza schools tonight on The O’Reilly Factor at approx. 830pm Eastern.*** So, Karl Rove gave his “We are all Americans” speech to the National Council of La Raza–The Race–yesterday. Today, my syndicated column digs into the millions of dollars in Bush administration federal education grants The Race has […]
Funny how the Wall Street Journal editorial writers have no problem smearing immigration enforcement advocates as “nativists” while Karl Rove holds hands with the National Council of The Race. I promise you more on this subject tomorrow. *** Human Events advises Rove on what he should say to The Race this afternoon. We can dream. […]
Over the weekend, I pointed to a story in the blabbermouth NYTimes about the vacation homes of Defense Secretary Don Rumsfeld and VP Dick Cheney as a news hook to talk about the Left’s selective apathy towards reckless, unnecessary invasions of privacy. The reactions were predictable: the usual moonbats accused me of hypocrisy by dredging […]
Why publish maps and specific street names and photographs of the private (not anymore) homes where the Vice President and Defense Secretary and their families spend their vacations? Why? Because blabbermouth Bill Keller feels like it, right? (Interesting timing, no?) Because the “people” (you know: Code Pink, Fred Phelps, jihadis) have a “right to know,” […]
Ian’s got the video of Murtha on Meet The Press. Transcript here. After criticizing Karl Rove’s “fat backside,” Murtha put forth his fat-headed Okinawa plan: MR. RUSSERT: You say redeploy. Again, Mr. Rove challenges that comment. Let’s listen and give you again a chance to respond to the White House. (Videotape, Monday): MR. ROVE: Congressman […]
So, while the moonbats foam over the non-indictment of Karl Rove, watch for the MSM to start caterwauling about Bush’s secret trip to Baghdad. Reader Stephen C. writes: Care to make a friendly wager on how long it will take the Democrats to accuse the President of making the trip as a publicity stunt? Or, […]
Tim Chapman reported last week: To qualify for full Social Security benefits, a worker must register 10 years of work. Under current law, illegal immigrants who obtain legal status can use their previous illegal work history to apply for Social Security benefits. A compromise immigration bill pending right now in the U.S. Senate (sponsored by […]
The Senate ignores the Windbag from Massachusetts and votes: The Senate voted to build 370 miles of triple-layered fencing along the Mexican border Wednesday and clashed over citizenship for millions of men and women who live in the United States illegally. Amid increasingly emotional debate over election-year immigration legislation, senators voted 83-16 to add fencing […]
