  • Stay Tuned for More of 'The Obama Show' (Washington Post roasts Obama)

    President Obama preempted soaps (but) viewers shouldn't have been disappointed: The president had arranged some prepackaged entertainment for them. After the obligatory first question from the Associated Press, Obama treated the overflowing White House briefing room to a surprise. "I know Nico Pitney is here from the Huffington Post," he announced. Obama knew this because White House aides had called Pitney the day before to invite him, and they had escorted him into the room. They told him the president was likely to call on him, with the understanding that he would ask a question about Iran that had been...
  • ABC Can't Find Military McCain Supporter in Iraq

    Members of the military are prohibited from engaging in political activity, but ABC News convinced a few soldiers in Iraq to go before the cameras to discuss their choices for president. It is well known that the troops generally support Republicans because of their pro-military credentials, which is the reason Al Gore tried to have ballots from overseas military bases disqualified during the 2000 recount. However, Martha Raddatz could not find a single soldier who supported Sen. John McCain, a Vietnam War veteran for Commander in Chief. Most of those Raddatz interviewed backed Sen. Barack Obama with one favoring Sen....
  • DC Gun Ban Ruling Will Aid McCain, GOP

    Conventional “wisdom” suggests that the current political environment favors Democrats in 2008. The long Democratic primary between Sens. Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama kept the focus on the candidates and away from the issues. Except for the broad themes of “hope” and “change” few Obama supporters can name a single position articulated by the Illinois senator. However, certain events may inject issues into the electoral debate that help John McCain and the Republicans. High gasoline prices have changed the dynamics of the national campaign, shifting public opinion toward offshore drilling and blaming Democrats for obstructing efforts to increase domestic energy...

    Former Colleagues, White House Reporters Stunned By McClellan AllegationsMSNBC’s spittle-spewing Chris Matthews had a new “tingle running down his leg” Wednesday with the release of a “tell-all” book by former White House Press Secretary Scott McClellan critical of the Bush administration. However, Matthews was only one among legions of Old Media liberals gushing about McClellan’s tome. In "What Happened: Inside the Bush White House and Washington's Culture of Deception," McClellan said that the war in Iraq was “unnecessary” and sold with “propaganda” and suggested that Karl Rove, Scooter Libby and maybe Vice President Dick Cheney conspired to conceal their roles...

    The spinners of the Obama campaign and the Illinois senator's Old Media sycophants that have been trying to convince Americans that the remarks of Rev. Jeremiah Wright have been misquoted or taken out of context are probably going to get drunk tonight if they have not already done so. Many of them sat with dropped jaw this morning as they watched Barack Obama's former pastor repeat the outrageous claims made in several sermons over the past few years. Flanked by bodyguards on loan from Louis Farrakhan's Nation of Islam, Rev. Wright played to a packed and stacked audience at the...

    Last week, Sen. Hillary Clinton jumped all over Sen. Barack Obama for speeches he made that employed phrases and flourishes previously used by Deval Patrick during his run for governor of Massachusetts. The overblown charges of plagiarism from Clinton’s surrogates and the candidate’s own attack line, “change you can Xerox” unleashed during a debate had little effect. The juvenile back-and-forth between the Democratic candidates about who used what words when hid the fact that neither Clinton nor Obama had much new to say. The campaigns of both candidates focused on the word “change” without offering any clue as to the...

    Would Network Air Comedian’s Troop Shows Today?NBC sank to a new low last week when it rejected ads thanking American troops for their sacrifice and offering them Christmas greetings. A network official deemed the spots produced by Freedom’s Watch, a pro-troop organization to be “too political.” The ensuing backlash from patriotic Americans convinced an adult at NBC to reverse the decision after a few days. The controversy underscored the liberal bias of the Old Media that can no longer be hidden or denied. The mindset that perceives a message of gratitude and support for American troops as "too political" defies...

    Conservative columnist Robert Novak caused quite a stir over the weekend writing that a Democratic operative told him that the Clinton campaign possessed a cache of scandalous information about rival presidential candidate Barack Obama, but had decided not to use it. Before long, the camps of the frontrunner and her closest challenger were trading accusations and denials, much to the delight of bored reporters and pundits looking for something to spice up the dulling march to Mrs. Clinton’s coronation as the 2008 Democratic presidential nominee. The ensuing discussions about the source, timing and substance of the claims gave rise to...

    Voters hoping to learn more about the positions of Democratic presidential candidates came away from Thursday night’s Las Vegas slugfest empty, confused and a bit angry. Even though CNN moderator Wolf Blitzer promised that each candidate would have ample time to articulate their key points during the broadcast, much of the face time went to Sen. Hillary Clinton. When the camera wasn’t on her, the questions were about her or the other candidates were talking about the former First Lady. Following the Russert debacle in the last debate, the Clinton campaign went to work on Blitzer, turning Wolf into a...

    By every measure, the tide has turned in Iraq. American troop deaths are on the decline along with the number of roadside bombings and incidents of sectarian violence. The flow of refugees out of Iraq has reversed course and those displaced within the country are returning to the neighborhoods where they once lived. Several factors came together to change what many believed to be a quagmire for the United States and an intractable civil war between Shi’a and Sunnis into a hopeful scenario of a secure and democratic Islamic nation in the heart of the Middle East. The dramatic shift...

The Philadelphia Inquirer reports that a whistleblower alleged the American Friends Service Committee (AFSC), commonly referred to as the Quakers, diverted funds bequethed to it for medical scholarships to other activities, most likely pro-illegal alien assistance and war resistance.

    For anyone hoping to find out some racy details within the pages of Jeff Gannon’s newly published book, “The Great Media War,” you’ll be sorely disappointed. Gannon resigned as White House correspondent from the conservative Talon News in 2005 amid charges of right-wing bias, inexperience and salacious accusations about his personal life. In the book, he admits nothing, referring only to his “perceived sexuality” and “photographs said to be me in various states of undress.” “In actuality,” he writes, “my personal life was dull compared to the fantasy world created by the Angry Gay Left.” No, in the tome that’s...

Indeed, "Brokeback"—-aka the Gay Cowboy movie—-has seen declines at the box office every day this week after a huge premiere and subsequent run in gay-concentrated neighborhoods. But now it may be that reality is setting in, and reality bites, as we all know. On Monday, "Brokeback" was 51 percent off from Sunday. On Tuesday, it was down 9.1 percent from Monday. By Wednesday, it was off another 7.6 percent. All...

"We cannot and will not leave Iraq until victory is achieved," he said. "It is true that much of the intelligence turned out to be wrong. As president I am responsible for the decision to go into Iraq," the president told a foreign policy forum on the eve of elections to establish Iraq's first permanent, democratically elected government. "And I'm also responsible for fixing what went wrong by reforming our intelligence capabilities. And we're doing just...

The Gay marriage issue is a highly charged emotional issue, and just the sort of thing that Republicans look for, which can keep them in power. Meanwhile other issues like reverse discrimination, the illegal war in Iraq and an eight trillion dollar federal debt get pushed to page two. Over the last ten years, an increasing...

    DURING THE 2004 election, the Internet became a potent force in political activism.

One of the greatest technological advances in the history of civilization enabled anyone with a laptop and a DSL connection to become part of the process to decide the future of America.

In fact, many of his loudest critics represent a much more serious obstacle to the success of the gay rights movement.

    Why is Garry Trudeau doing a "Doonesbury" sequence inspired by disgraced Republican-friendly reporter Jeff Gannon? "I'm not sure it's commonly understood to what lengths this administration is willing to go to bypass the 'filter,' as Bush calls the media," the cartoonist replied in an e-mail interview. "The president made it official Wednesday -- his Justice Department (news - web sites), fresh from signing off on torture, apparently thinks propaganda's OK too." When asked if he thought the press has underreported the Gannon episode, pundit payola, and other examples of media manipulation, Trudeau said: "It's not that it's been underreported so...

    Pseudo-journalistic Web sites are another way conservatives get around “the filter” of mainstream media. It’s a new medium, but, for the Republican Party, it’s an old story. During one especially hectic week in mid-February, the Internet took three scalps in what appeared to be unrelated events. Liberal bloggers forced Talon News White House correspondent James D. Guckert, a k a “Jeff Gannon,” to resign after it was revealed that he was writing under a false name for a Republican activist group (GOPUSA), that he was not really a journalist at all, and that he had posed nude on the Internet...

    President Bush gave a press conference today. Which reminds us why he doesn't do it more often. Here are some of the questions he fielded: Q Mr. President, you say you're making progress in the Social Security debate. Yet private accounts, as the centerpiece of that plan, something you first campaigned on five years ago and laid before the American people, remains, according to every measure we have, poll after poll, unpopular with a majority of Americans. So the question is, do you feel that this is a point in the debate where it's incumbent upon you, and nobody else,...

    Well, it's official. The White House Correspondents' Association has weighed in on "Gannongate," saying "individual episodes" should not prompt a crackdown on credentialing. That was a reference to a conservative reporter, Jeff Gannon, heavily criticized for asking anti-Democrat questions. Matt Drudge reported on February 28 that in a resolution adopted at a meeting in Washington that morning, the association said it "stands for inclusiveness in the credentialing process so that the White House remains accessible to all journalists We hope that individual episodes do not obscure the broader principles of a fair and evenhanded credentialing process." The resolution explained that...

Guckert, a k a “Jeff Gannon,” to resign after it was revealed that he was writing under a false name for a Republican activist group (GOPUSA), that he was not really a journalist at all, and that he had posed nude on the Internet in an effort to solicit sex for money.

    Jeff Gannon (or if you prefer, James Guckert) has been elevated by an unnamed Democratic strategist to cult like status. According to an article posted on Raw Story, we are all now living in something the fringe left calls the "post-Jeff Gannon era." That's "where the left can finally show we know how to fight back and hold the media accountable.” According to this unnamed strategist. “The right wing spent 30 years telling America about the liberal media, it’s time Democrats found the courage to set the record straight.” It seems that liberals are all up in arms becuase Boston...

    'The death of Hunter S. Thompson represents that passing from the Age of Gonzo to the Age of Gannon,' wrote Russell Cobb in a Daily Texan column at the University of Texas.As he argues, today's White House press corps are less likely to be invaded by maverick talent like a drug addled reporter from a renegade start up magazine than by Jeff Gannon, a fake reporter run by a bona fide Texas Republican operative.Though few remain on the case, the Gannon story is fast receding. His own website has now started by up as a blog with Gonzo pretentions. As...
