  • NYTimes offers discounts in mistaken email gaffe

    NEW YORK (AP) -- In today's digital age, it's easy to send out an email by mistake — even for a company that's in the business of communication. The New York Times thought it was sending an email to a few hundred people who had recently canceled subscriptions, offering them a 50 percent discount for 16 weeks to lure them back. Instead, Wednesday's offer went to 8.6 million email addresses of people who had given them to the Times. That was the first mistake.

    He could have bet a beer. Or maybe a steak dinner. But during a heated dispute with Rick Perry during Saturday night's debate in Des Moines, Iowa, Mitt Romney extended his right hand and asked the Texas governor if he'd wager $10,000 to settle a dispute over his healthcare record. The rich bet instantly provided Romney's opponents with new ammunition for their charge that he's out of touch with middle-class America.

    Washington, United States The Republican candidates differ on their ideologies in various foreign policy issues in the second Republican presidential debate. Newt Gingrich, who more recently has emerged to the top of the race for the Republican presidential nomination, said that during his government did not expel immigrants without legal permission but already have a life founded in the United States. The applicant added that the Republicans can not say that his party is in favor of the family when separating parents from their children who were born in the country and have citizenship. Gingrich, also supported the antiterrorism law...

    The smear campaign against Cain continues By now the internet, radio, television, and wagging tongues everywhere are all abuzz over the latest campaign blunder by Herman Cain.

Well, call me cynical, but I’ve seen enough media shenanigans to be suspicious of anything taken out of context and this definitely tripped my radar.

    One day after he experienced arguably the most humiliating gaffe of his political career, Gov. Rick Perry poked fun at himself on The Late Show with David Letterman by delivering the night's "Top 10" list. Letterman couldn't help referring to his guest in his monologue, saying he had a trio of concerns about Perry, including his conservative politics, his debating skills, and "three... crap. What was three?" Perry entered the stage looking visibly giddy before saluting the audience. He delivered the "Top 10 Rick Perry Excuses" for failing to remember the third federal agency he would abolish during Wednesday evening's...

    By facing the issue and joking about it, Perry frames his gaffe as a funny moment rather than a serious, and seriously stupid, one. He takes control of the discussion. Every minute he's on the air being interviewed about it is one more minute his moment isn't being replayed, one more minute some panel of pundits isn't fretfully analyzing its stupendous terribleness. By allowing his memory glitch to be the topic of discussion and owning up to it, he helps exhaust the subject. Most of all, Perry is being humanized, albeit not in the way any politician would wish.

I’m a human being.” But what’s actually happening in our brains when we screw up? ....When our brain becomes narrowly focused – as Perry’s brain was when it was suggested that the name of the...

    Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry, looking to bounce back from a recent debate gaffe, doubled-down in his own defense Thursday by admitting debating is not his strength. “If we’re electing the Debater-in-Chief, don’t elect me,” the Texas governor said on Fox News, repeating his previous criticism of President Obama, who he calls a “great debater.” Earlier in the day, Perry called President Obama “sleek as a mink” over his debate-style on conservative talk radio host Laura Ingraham’s show. Perry stayed on message in his latest appearance, part of a media blitz Thursday following a debate misstep the previous night in...

    It's no accident that Mitt Romney has done so well during this election cycle. He has excellent name recognition, he's extremely well organized, he's a great fundraiser, he's become a polished debater, and he's not gaffe prone. His business experience doesn't hurt either, although it is worth noting that the only reason he's able to brag that he's not a "career politician" is because he lost to Ted Kennedy for the Senate and probably would have lost in 2008 had he run for governor of Massachusetts again. All that being said, there's a reason why Mitt Romney has been unable...

Perry has been very visible, voluble, and controversial, and the media have been portraying him as something verging on a loose cannon. One example was his response to a question about whether President Obama loves his country. Perry said the questioner would have to ask Obama--which left the impression that Perry has doubts about the president's patriotism. Another example came yesterday, when Perry called global warming "a scientific theory that has not been proven and from my perspective is more and more being put into...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: I read today a piece written by a friend of mine named Michael Ledeen. I've quoted Michael Ledeen on this program before. He's a noted scholar and think tank thinker, and he's done a lot of thinking for a lot of different think tanks. He's been associated with I think Heritage and a number of them. Now, what he's primarily known for in recent years has been championing the cause of the Iranian people against the oppression that they face each and every day. He's always been a staunch supporter of the United States military, keen observer,...
  • Obama mistakes first surviving Medal of Honor recipient for a DEAD hero soldier

    06/24/2011 10:49:12 AM PDT · by Justaham · 30 replies
    President Obama made an embarrassing blunder during an address to U.S. soldiers. Speaking at Fort Drum in upstate New York yesterday, the President mixed up two Medal of Honor recipients, referring to dead hero soldier Jared Monti as alive. For the members of the U.S. Army's 10th Mountain Division who listened to the President's speech, the remark no doubt came as a shock. The President said: 'Throughout my service, first as a senator and then as a presidential candidate and then as a President, I’ve always run into you guys. And for some reason it’s always in some rough spots....

    President Obama flubbed his remarks to troops at Fort Drum Thursday when he told the US Army’s 10th Mountain Division about the time he awarded the first Medal of Honor to someone not receiving it posthumously. The medal, he said, went to Jared Monti. The only issue is that Jared Monti died in service in Afghanistan, and did in fact receive the medal posthumously

  • Sarah Palin Gets The Name Of The Statue Of Liberty Wrong (BARF ALERT)

    06/01/2011 9:37:21 PM PDT · by Ira_Louvin · 93 replies
    While tweeting about her visit to New York, Sarah Palin let the world know that she was visiting the Statute of Liberty. You probably aren’t surprised, but Sarah Palin managed to get the name of the Statue of Liberty wrong. This woman wants Republicans to believe that she can be president, but she doesn’t know that it is called the Statue of Liberty? What’s worse is that this wasn’t a verbal gaffe, it was written. She could have checked the tweet before she sent from her Blackberry, but that isn’t how Sarah Palin rolls.

    So much for president perfect eh libs? I thought this was the guy that was going to restore our standing in the world! From the conservative standpoint his trip to Britain was a smashing success. A shorter way to put that is, "we told you so!"He should open up a business... The menu would be pretty robust: France: Enough already! If I wanted red "whine" I'd go to my local party meeting. India: "I'm not going anywhere near those dots, I've never had to connect any and I ain't starting now!" Japan: "Seriously? Just because I'm bowing in this gay...
