    The Daily Caller ^ | 5-10-2012 | Jeff Poor
    Fox News’ Shepard Smith didn’t hide his feelings after ABC aired a snippet of the interview in which President Obama came out in favor of gay marriage. “The president of the United States, now in the 21st century,” Smith said. Later on his “Studio B” show, in a segment with “Special Report” host Bret Baier, Smith doubled down by saying Republicans were on “the wrong side of history.” On the Thursday broadcast of his radio show, however, conservative talker Rush Limbaugh challenged Smith’s statement, and asked where the anchor thought gay marriage been a winner electorally. “Republicans on the wrong...

From reconfirming the meaning of marriage, to showing support for a great Wisconsin governor, to humiliating a sitting Democrat president with a huge turnout for a convicted felon, voters demonstrated that the power attributed to Barack Obama and the State-Controlled Media has been overestimated.

"A couple of million bucks in the first quarter and a couple of million bucks in quarter two." Dickey would not give exact figures, but said the "millions" accounted for "about one percent" of the roughly $245 million in first quarter revenues, and said he expected revenue to return to normal in June.

    Recently Ozzie Guillen, the manager of the Miami Marlins baseball team, said that he admired Fidel Castro. It was ignorant and perhaps stupid, and has created a mini firestorm in southern Florida. The comment has caused a fairly predictable reaction from many including the media, particularly in this case, the sports media. The belief that we are constitutionally guaranteed the right to free speech, and with that freedom we can say whatever we want without consequence is false.

    Liberal theologian William Ellery Channing once observed, “The cry has been that when war is declared, all opposition should be hushed. A sentiment more unworthy of a free country could hardly be propagated.” War has indeed been declared. Channing’s contemporary liberal counterparts have declared a war for our culture. But while Channing presumably held to the oft-bandied supposition that “dissent is the highest form of patriotism,” today’s secular-progressive has no choice but to endeavor that “all opposition should be hushed.” Liberals recognize that when arguing on the merits, they cannot prevail.

    Any sacred cow whines to YouTube and Facebook and as a result, whatever the sacred cow is whining about is immediately taken down. But a song that openly calls for the killing of Rush Limbaugh apparently doesn't offend YouTube or Facebook, in the least. Disgusted by Rush Limbaugh's recent antics? Blast our song, 'KILL RUSH'

    Politico ^ | 3/21/12 2:37 PM EDT | Brian Glicklich, Spokesperson, Rush Limbaugh Show
    David Brock is so outraged at Rush Limbaugh’s words of three weeks ago that he started organizing a protest — almost 3 years ago. It was planned ahead and activated at the first moment Brock could manipulate a media frenzy. Make no mistake, Brock’s “marketplace of ideas” offers only one brand: Brand Brock. All others will be forced off the shelves with intimidation and lies. Media Matters for America stands for censorship, and nothing more than that. Their ginned-up election year anger is directed at the words of their media political opposition — similar expressions are ignored when used by...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Here's a story from Fox News. This... See, I have a sense of things in this country. I believe there's a great silent majority. I think you're in it. The silent majority is made up of people who are not represented by the Democrat Party or the mainstream media. The silent majority are the people who get up and go to work, try to play by the rules, try to do everything right according to their morality and sense of ethics and their sense of right and wrong. They get laughed at and made fun of for...

    Bristol Palin believes President Barack Obama should call her to apologize for the comments made about her by Bill Maher just as he called Sandra Fluke about the comments made about the law student by Rush Limbaugh, according to ABC News. Palin has blogged about how the cases are similar, but the president is not calling her since she is a Republican and Maher made a $1 million contribution to the Democrat-run super PAC. As a political scientist, I have to applaud Palin for setting up a perfect catch-22 for the president. Palin used her blog to point out how...

    Last week, conservative radio talker Rush Limbaugh began to utilize Twitter as a means of mobilizing listeners against attacks aimed at him for remarks he made about Georgetown Law student and so-called contraception activist Sandra Fluke. Limbaugh had previously resisted calls for him to use Twitter. However, in the wake of the Fluke controversy he reversed course and is now promoting his Twitter account by offering new followers the chance to win the recently released version of the iPad. During his Monday broadcast, the conservative talker previewed a tweet showing the “astroturfing” efforts of self-proclaimed anono-activist “Shoq” and Media Matters...

    ***WARNING Graphic Words President Barack Obama makes a two-city, five-stop re-election fundraising blitz on Friday, jetting to his hometown of Chicago for a pair of events and then on to Atlanta for three more, including one featuring R&B star Cee Lo Green and another at the home of actor and director Tyler Perry. Cee Lo? Really? So after the left ran around palms up screaming about Rush Limbaugh calling Ms. Fluke a “slut,” President Obama is having a fundraiser headlined by the guy who said this: I’ll put the barrel to your baby momma belly and squeeze off two

    Every once in a while, despite our political differences, people of good faith can come together in agreement on major issues. Exhibit A is this New York Times op-ed by the unfortunately named Stanley Fish whom Wikipedia assures me is someone of some import though for what reason I really can’t tell. From Professor Fish: "If we think about the Rush Limbaugh dust-up from the non-liberal — that is, non-formal — perspective, the similarity between what he did and what Schultz and Maher did disappears. Schultz and Maher are the good guys; they are on the side of truth and...

You may have heard the ads on the radio that Carbonite is the way to go when it comes to saving back-up copies of your computer files. Well it's not the only way to go. Take my Seagate one-hundred gigabyte back-up drive, it does everything that Carbonite does and for less. But I'm not here to shout out about Seagate nor any other storage device manufacturer...I'm sure there's other reputable builders out there. What I am here to talk about is the hypocrisy of...

    While both Rush Limbaugh and HBO's Bill Maher have used offensive language against women whose political views they oppose, Representative Shelley Berkely (D-Nev) attempted to explain why she feels one should be banned and the other not. “First of all, there is the issue of impact,” Berkely said. “Limbaugh's audience numbers in the millions. Maher, on the other hand, has maybe a few thousand fans. Since so few people have actually heard what Maher has said, his remarks are more along the lines of a private conversation. I mean, why ban someone that hardly anyone is listening to?” “Second, is...
