THE MOONBAT RUMOR MILL

By Michelle Malkin  •  May 16, 2006 11:23 AM

***Update: Byron York reports on Leopold digging in…*** The Wall Street Journal has a piece today covering the left-wing blog storm over false rumors that Karl Rove was indicted and about to jump ship on Friday, Saturday, Sunday, or Monday. We take a break from the border blues and have fun with the moonbats who’ve […]

ROVEMANIA

By Michelle Malkin  •  May 15, 2006 03:00 PM

There are a lot of rumors flying around the left side of the blogosphere about a Karl Rove indictment. (He’s among the top Technorati searches today.) The New York Sun reports otherwise. But unhinged Democrats are already partying hard. The Detroit Free Press report: Was it an improbable outside-the-Beltway scoop on the ultimate inside-the-Beltway story? […]

TONY SNOW FOR PRESS SECRETARY?

By Michelle Malkin  •  April 19, 2006 09:02 AM

***scroll for updates*** That’s the buzz. Tune in to Tony’s show starting now. *** Update: Scott McClellan resigning… White House press secretary Scott McClellan said Wednesday he is resigning, continuing a shakeup in President Bush’s administration that has already yielded a new chief of staff and could lead to a change in the Cabinet. Appearing […]

THE WHITE HOUSE AND "ETHER SPACE"

By Michelle Malkin  •  February 28, 2006 09:58 AM

Drudge is hyping Bill Sammon’s new book, “Strategery,” this morning and publishes an interesting passage from the book on the White House’s warm views of the blogosphere and cyberspace. Or the “ether space,” as President Bush calls it. (At least they got him to stop saying “Internets.”) “I think what’s healthy is that there’s no […]

THE WHITE HOUSE WALKS IT BACK

By Michelle Malkin  •  February 23, 2006 07:06 PM

I added this at the bottom of the post below, but Karl Rove’s significant concession (camouflaged in face-saving rhetoric) deserves to stand alone: President George W. Bush would accept a slight delay in permitting Dubai Ports World to acquire a British company that operates six key U.S. ports, senior White House adviser Karl Rove told […]

PORTGATE AND THE RUBBER-STAMPERS

By Michelle Malkin  •  February 23, 2006 05:05 PM

After a rather rude (and criminal) disruption, I’m back. Let’s return to the ports, shall we? Lesson One of Portgate: Scream “Islamophobia/xenophobia” often enough, and people will start to back down. Lesson Two of Portgate: Mislead and mischaracterize your critics often enough, and people will start to back down. Here are two key talking points […]

DIRTY HARRY REID: NOW AND THEN

By Michelle Malkin  •  February 9, 2006 07:47 PM

Now (via Breitbart/AP): Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid wrote at least four letters helpful to Indian tribes represented by Jack Abramoff, and the senator’s staff regularly had contact with the disgraced lobbyist’s team about legislation affecting other clients. The activities _ detailed in billing records and correspondence obtained by The Associated Press _ are far […]

(FILI)BLUSTERER OF THE DAY

By Michelle Malkin  •  January 26, 2006 05:01 PM

CNN reporting: Sen. John Kerry has decided to support a filibuster to block the nomination of Judge Samuel Alito to the Supreme Court, CNN’s Congressional Correspondent Ed Henry reported Thursday. Kerry, in Davos, Switzerland, to attend the World Economic Forum, was marshaling support in phone calls during the day, Henry said. He announced his decision […]

THE AMAZON.COM REVIEW CESSPOOL

By Michelle Malkin  •  January 23, 2006 01:08 PM

Much has been made of the rabid Left’s online swarm that shut down the Washington Post’s blog comment section. The comments seemed comparatively tame to me. Maybe I’ll copy off Chapter 6 of Unhinged and send it off to the WaPo ombudsman and her editors to help them feel better. Meantime, the moonbat manipulation of […]

THE LEFT'S PRIVACY HYPOCRITES

By Michelle Malkin  •  January 3, 2006 10:10 AM

Two weeks ago, I wrote about the selective outrage of the left’s privacy hypocrites–led by the likes of NY Dem Sen. Charles Schumer, the privacy champion who has yet to apologize to Maryland GOP Lt. Gov. Michael Steele over his stolen credit report (pilfered by two of Schumer’s former Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee staffers currently […]

CANDIDATE FOR DUMBEST NYTIMES PIECE EVER

By Michelle Malkin  •  December 11, 2005 11:10 AM

On Friday, Editor and Publisher hyped this Sunday NYTimes magazine piece by Michael Crowley about the influence of conservative vs. liberal blogs. Maureen Dowd and Paul Krugman offer stiff competition on a weekly basis, but Crowley’s embarrassing little squib (283 words) has to be one of most insipid, shallow, and uninformed wastes of space to […]

NO NEWS IS…NO NEWS

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 26, 2005 01:59 PM

Via Breitbart/AP, the federal grand jury investigating Plamegate met for three hours today with Special Counsel Patrick Fitzgerald and adjourned for the day without announcing any action. Tom Maguire, who has covered every twist and turn of the story, posts his predictions. He thinks there will be no Karl Rove indictment. If so, Chris Matthews’ […]

No more cronyism: Bush DHS nominee doesn’t deserve the job

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 20, 2005 06:45 AM

**updated** Another disastrous crony appointment in the making This is Julie Myers, President Bush’s nominee to head the the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency under the Department of Homeland Security. Her nomination is a joke. A bad joke: (via WaPo) The Bush administration is seeking to appoint a lawyer with little immigration or customs […]

RADIOACTIVE — THE DLC AND BILL CLINTON?

By mmguestblogger  •  August 22, 2005 09:24 PM

Bulldog Pundit at ABP noticed this at Daily Kos: Two more weeks, folks, before we take them on, head on. No calls for a truce will be brooked. The DLC has used those pauses in the past to bide their time between offensives. Appeals to party unity will fall on deaf ears (it’s summer of […]

THE SHEEHAN SAGA: DIVORCE, AIR SCAMERICA & PUSHING BACK

By Michelle Malkin  •  August 15, 2005 10:21 PM

The Associated Press is reporting this evening: The husband of Cindy Sheehan, the mother camped outside President Bush’s Texas ranch to protest the death of a son in the Iraq war, has filed for divorce, according to court documents. Patrick Sheehan filed the divorce petition Friday in Solano County court, northeast of San Francisco. His […]

AIR ENRON: THE NYTIMES SPEAKS! (OR RATHER, WHISPERS)

By Michelle Malkin  •  August 11, 2005 10:39 PM

After 15 days of silence, the New York Times has filed a thin little report on the Air Scamerica/Air Enron fiasco. But you need a magnifying glass to find it. Go the the NYTimes.com homepage. Nothing there. Click over the National section. Nothing there. Find your way to the NY/Region section. Scroll way down past […]

AIR AMERICA: DON’T BLAME US

By Michelle Malkin  •  July 28, 2005 08:54 AM

In response to questions from radio reporter Perry Michael Simon about New York City’s corruption probe involving the alleged diversion of public funds from two non-profit clubs that benefit poor kids and seniors to Air America, the liberal radio network put out a statement yesterday. Bottom line: Don’t blame us. Here’s the text via Brian […]

ROVEMANIA: CA$HIN’ IN

By Michelle Malkin  •  July 26, 2005 11:41 AM

Weird. For some reason, Cafe Press just sent me an e-mail coupon–$5 off orders of $30 or more–on Karl Rove novelty items (mostly anti-Rove), including t-shirts, hats, buttons, and other junk. Check out the entire Rove product line here. Here’s a Rove-bashing throw pillow. Here’s one of the few pro-Rove buttons. The Left may be […]

KILL THE “KERRY DID IT” MEME

By Michelle Malkin  •  July 19, 2005 10:04 AM

Ugh. The Plame games are making me ill. And it’s not just the rhetoric on the left that is causing nausea. I am now seeing many of my friends on the right invoke the “John Kerry did it” card to pooh-pooh Rovegate. See here, here, and here, for example. I addressed this incident back in […]

MORE ROVE-MANIA..AND THE MEDIA MYSTERY DEEPENS (UPDATED)

By Michelle Malkin  •  July 15, 2005 09:21 AM

Compare and contrast… NY Times headline: Rove Reportedly Held Phone Talk on C.I.A. Officer AP headline: Source: Rove Got CIA Agent ID From Media The NY Times clings to the Evil Genius narrative, despite what its own reporting and follow-ups from other press outlets shows… NY Times lead graf: WASHINGTON, July 14 – Karl Rove, […]

WHO LET THE DOGS OUT?

By Michelle Malkin  •  July 12, 2005 07:14 AM

White House press secretary Scott McClellan got grilled yesterday afternoon on Rove/Plame-mania and came under intense pressure from the MSM hounds, particularly NBC’s David Gregory and ABC’s Terry “The Royal” Moran: Woof. Woof. Woof. Woof. I actually have no problem with McClellan getting justifiably barked at during his daily briefings (if only we had more […]

STARK ROVE-ING MAD

By Michelle Malkin  •  July 11, 2005 07:32 AM

Bush-bashers have been in a tizzy all weekend over the latest Rove revelations. The Washington Post follows up; Pavlovian salivation ensues. For a non-heavy-breathing perspective, read: Betsy Newmark on the “scandalette.” Lorie Byrd at Polipundit on “Some Of The Worst ‘Reporting’ I Have Seen – And That’s Saying A Lot.” Tom Maguire at Just One […]

THE 7/7 ATTACKS: REACTIONS FROM THE AMERICAN LEFT

By Michelle Malkin  •  July 7, 2005 12:06 PM

From the Democratic Underground: – Its (sic) a war. My country’s army is killing civilians; am I a “fair target?” – the root causes of terrorism are what needs to be addressed in order to get a handle on changing these circumstances. There are myriads (literally) of terrorists who have reasons for what they are […]

ROVE-ING REPORTS

By Michelle Malkin  •  July 4, 2005 07:35 AM

There was a lot of heavy breathing over the weekend about Lawrence “Creepy Liar” O’Donnell’s claim that Karl Rove was the source of the Valerie Plame leak. The Newsweek story from Isikoff is here. O’Donnell blusters some more here. Guest-blogger Rob Port at Wizbang deconstructs O’Donnell. Charles Schumer huffs and puffs. Guest-blogger Dafydd at Captain’s […]
