  • 'Completely wrong,' Mitt Romney, and the Google dust-up

    Christian Science Monitor ^ | October 11, 2012 | Matthew Shaer
    Google says the 'completely wrong' image results are 'natural' – not a deliberate jab at Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney. Political news is big on Google, but the search engine rarely becomes the focus of a political story. As a slew of Twitterers and bloggers pointed out yesterday afternoon, the search term "completely wrong" brings up a slew of pictures (big and small) of presidential hopeful and former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney. CNN has traced the origin of the whole mess to an interview with Sean Hannity of Fox News, wherein Romney attempted to distance himself from his infamous "47...

    There is an uplifting American feel about a university, a workplace or a neighborhood brimming with people of different races. It is the product of a nation assembled of people from everywhere else. From many places, one people. Other nations have diversity of a sort, but no one can go to France and become French. I cannot go to Brazil and become Brazilian. The diversity of America, an assemblage of skin colors painted with a wide swath of history from immigration to slavery, has become a uniquely beautiful concept. Leave it to government to screw it up. The Supreme Court’s...

Looking toward Sagittarius, the scene spans nearly 3 degrees or six times the width of the Full Moon. At bottom, upper right, and lower left it covers the Lagoon Nebula (M8), the Trifid Nebula (M20), and NGC 6559, in the crowded, dusty starfields of the central Milky Way. The adopted color scheme shows dust reddened starlight in red hues and normally red emission from hydrogen atoms in green. Built and operated by the Pan-STARRS project, the instrument features a 1.4 gigapixel (billion pixel) digital camera...

    Heading into the closing stages of Thursday night’s vice presidential debate in Danville, Ky., moderator Martha Raddatz of ABC News steered the conversation away from foreign policy and the economy and toward abortion, a development that pleased both President Obama’s re-election campaign and some liberal media commentators.Raddatz, who has been under fire in recent days for her decades-old association with President Barack Obama, instructed Vice President Joe Biden and Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan to discuss their Catholic faith as it regards the emotional and intensely personal issue.

    Danville, Ky.At the end of the vice presidential debate Thursday night, Joe Biden and Paul Ryan lobbed charges of extremism at one another on the issue of abortion. "The Democratic party used to say they want [abortion] to be safe, legal, and rare," Ryan said. "Now they support it without restriction and with taxpayer funding, taxpayer funding in Obamacare, taxpayer funding with foreign aid. The vice president himself went to China and said that he sympathized or wouldn’t second-guess their one-child policy of forced abortions and sterilizations. That, to me, is pretty extreme."Biden shot back, saying that Ryan has "argued...

    OSLO — The Norwegian Nobel Committee awarded its 2012 peace prize on Friday to the European Union, saying it had contributed to the advancement of peace and reconciliation across the continent. With the body wrestling with the most severe financial crisis in its history over the single euro currency, the award surprised some people. The announcement came against a global backdrop of conflict, with civil war in Syria threatening to spill across the region, the Afghanistan war grinding into a second decade and earlier hopes of a new era of tranquillity in the Middle East largely abandoned.

"I've got to get back before these (presidential) debates are over," Savage said Tuesday. "And when I do, it will be bigger than ever." Savage's lawyer, Daniel Horowitz - who led the legal fight to get the nationally syndicated star out of his contract with the Talk Radio Network - said the hot-talk hotshot is in discussions with three "major players" he declined to name.

The prize, worth $1.2 million, will be presented in Oslo on Dec. 10. The decision by the five-member panel, led by Council of Europe Secretary-General Thorbjoern Jagland, was unanimous, NRK said. “We have had confirmation from people whom we trust who say that it is the EU that will get the prize,” NRK radio said, an hour before the prize announcement at 0900 GMT.

How better to sum up the most unctuous, disingenuous vice president in this writer’s lifetime? The radical left-wing Delawarean showed the same loathsome traits that he displayed during his debate with Sarah Palin four years ago. But this time, because he wasn’t facing a woman he wasn’t walking on eggshells, terrified of offending female voters. This allowed his worst characteristics to...

The nuclear-powered attack submarine, a type also known menacingly as a hunter-killer, that year became the first of her kind to fire in anger..... But the ship now in the crosswires was not the Belgrano.

    Starting Monday, Oct. 15, Humphries’ program – the 8th largest syndicated talk show in America – moves to afternoon drive, to be heard on a total of 285 stations across the country. The move is part of the shakeup that occurred after Michael Savage’s successful lawsuit against his long-time syndication company made him a “free agent.” Finally able to get out of his contract, Savage departed the airwaves earlier this month. While he hints that he’ll be back on terrestrial radio “within the next two weeks,” his sudden departure prompted Talk Radio Network to move Jerry Doyle into Savage’s old...

Here's their exchange, per the debate transcript: RYAN: You can cut tax rates by 20 percent and still preserve these important preferences for middle-class taxpayers. BIDEN: Not mathematically possible. RYAN: It is mathematically possible. It’s been done before. It’s precisely what we’re proposing. BIDEN (laughing): It has never been done before.

    October 12 marks the 12th anniversary of the bombing of the USS Cole. The grim milestone comes as President Obama faces mounting questions about his administration's dereliction of duty during the murderous attack on our consulate in Benghazi, Libya. And it comes just a day after resurgent al-Qaida thugs pulled off the drive-by assassination of a top Yemeni security official who worked at the U.S. embassy in Sanaa. These are not "bumps in the road." These are gravesites on the blood-spattered path to surrender. Seventeen U.S. sailors died in the brutal suicide attack on the guided Navy missile destroyer as...

    It was crystal clear tonight that Vice President Biden was determined not to reprise the president's passive performance in Denver.  In that, he succeeded.  He also succeeded in interrupting his opponent constantly, repeatedly laughing at strange moments, and playing the 'loud anger' card frequently.  Rep. Paul Ryan's serenity in the face of the Vice President's behavior was almost supernatural.  On actual talking points, the two men battled to a draw.  Ryan excelled on economic issues, gave a fabulous answer on abortion and closed strong.  He also held his own on foreign policy.  Biden scored on Afghanistan and by pointing out...

Manufactured by Musk's Space Exploration Technologies Corp.

    I think I misjudged the debate in real-time. As the debate commenced Paul Ryan appeared to be nervous and he appeared nervous to a diminishing degree throughout the entire debate until the end when he recovered well, as witnessed by his frequent reaching for the water glass. As a result of his nervousness I thought he was tentative. Ironically, Biden might have sensed this nervousness or tentativeness in Ryan and overstepped. When Biden made his first "buffoonish" intrusion I said to myself, "thank God!" I felt that Biden had made a signal error but I misjudged its impact by regarding...

Ramadan Salem told authorities he mistakenly shot Mostafa, 16, after she cursed him. It is uncertain whether Salem will be convicted: The only witness willing to testify — Mostafa's friend, Sahar Mamdouh — has been threatened in a society that often blames women and girls for provoking sexual crimes against them. After an uprising toppled President Hosni Mubarak early last year, women and minorities hoped for a nation that would...

Oh, certainly, he did not have too much makeup on, nor did he attempt to stride up to Ryan menacingly (which would have earned him the same bemused look Bush gave Gore), but everything else? Check. Check. And check. Biden was heard sighing and chuckling in the background. His voice dripped with contempt, even when describing his own plans and ideas. He overtalked so much that at one point, it seemed like Ryan should make like...

    One of the casualties of Obama's debate last week is his likability rating. That was the only thing that was sustaining him. It definitely wasn't the state of the economy. When he started smirking and looking condescending when Romney was pummeling him with facts, some people not only continued to think of him as not exactly competent, they started for the first time thinking him as rude and a jerk. While Biden probably made Democrats feel better with his debate performance, I expect that his terrible rudeness confirmed the lack of likability of the Obama/Biden ticket in the minds of...

    Nigella Lawson insisted that she had nothing against the French as she delivered a series of cutting remarks about their pretentious sauces, fussy plate decoration and egotistical chefs. The author, speaking to an audience at The Times Cheltenham Literature Festival, deftly filleted the nation that prides itself on its gastronomy, saying that she preferred Italian and even English cuisine. Asked why she had written her latest book, Nigellissima, about Italian food, she said that she had gone to Italy as a student because it was not France. “My parents were great francophiles, and my father now lives in France....

    Before, during and after Thursday's US vice presidential debate, the tweets were raging. Ahead of the event, Vice President Joe Biden tweeted a picture of himself and President Barack Obama, while Republican Paul Ryan showed a picture with his young son, "one of my most trusted advisors." By the time the debate started, tweets were flying, with fact-checkers on both sides, as Twitter users created pages for @LaughinJoeBiden -- poking fun at his frequent grins -- and hashtages like #LyinRyan, suggesting the Republican was loose with the facts. "Holy Gish Gallop, Batman! Lie fast, lie often, and don't allow a...

    Kid Rock and Sean Penn teamed up this week to make a short movie tackling the rhetoric and stereotypes that can accompany political differences.

The mini-movie, titled "Americans," is co-written by Penn and Rock. It shows the two men meeting in a bar and clashing over their politically opposite opinions. "The goal of the film is to tear down the one-dimensional political stereotypes...

    Vice President Joe Biden accused Rep. Paul Ryan of putting two wars on the “credit card,” and then suggested he voted against the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. “By the way, they talk about this great recession like it fell out of the sky–like, ‘Oh my goodness, where did it come from?’” Biden said. “It came from this man voting to put two wars on a credit card, at the same time, put a prescription drug plan on the credit card, a trillion dollar tax cut for the very wealthy.” “I was there, I voted against them,” Biden continued. “I...

    With Mitt Romney surging in polls since his strong debate performance last week, supporters of President Obama are vowing online to riot nationwide and even leave the U.S. should the Republican challenger oust the incumbent. Numerous Twitter postings in recent days feature threats of street violence, often poorly worded, as collected by the Twitchy website. For instance, on Oct. 8, John Kramer@YoungCal626 posted: “I Hope The USA Is Well Aware That If In The Event This Character Romney Wins The Election, The People Will Start A Country Wide Riot! #Power” On Oct. 3, Tommy Pickles@ThugPickles wrote: “I Heard Mitt Romney...
