  • NYT: Obama Should Resign So We Can Get To Work And Fix The Economy!

    Actually, that was the position of New York Times columnist Gail Collins in November 2008 concerning President George W. Bush. The economic situation was so bad, she wanted Bush to resign and step aside so that the economic problems could be fixed. But take her article, switch a few words, and her analysis is even more applicable today. Here you go:

    The Washington Post has lost it. Someone ought to study the Republican Party. I am not referring to yet another political scientist but to a mental health professional, preferably a specialist in the power of fixations, obsessions and the like. The GOP needs an intervention. It has become a cult. To become a Republican, one has to take a pledge... Read more here (if you can stand it) Just to add some balance to WaPo's opinion piece, here are some facts about what it takes to be a Democrat in today's world.

    Our way to ruin is paved with empty promises We are in a real bind. We have massive entitlements growing out of control and there is no end in sight. The term “unsustainable” does not even scratch the surface of the problems that are facing this soon to be “once a great nation”. Like Obama’s former chief of staff, Rahm Israel Emanuel once said, "You never want a serious crisis to go to waste”, Obama is taking his advice and is doing just that. He will continue to gut the dollar until everything falls apart and when people who dependent...

    Whenever there is an unusual weather pattern, members of the Holy Church of Global Warming Moonbats start spreading new scare-tactics. Usually it sounds something like: This planet is headed for a disaster of biblical proportions. Old Testament real wrath of God type stuff. Fire and brimstone coming down from the skies! Rivers and seas boiling! Forty years of Gilligan’s Island Re-runs! Earthquakes, volcanoes, another Rocky Movie rising from the grave. Human sacrifice, Elliot Spitzer and Anthony Weiner living together… mass hysteria!

    If you’ve never stopped to consider how the “mainstream” media manipulates your thoughts, feelings and reactions to elicit a response favorable to their agenda, you should watch this presentation. In fact, even if you have considered how the “mainstream” media molds the message to get you to feel what they want you to feel, this is still an informative presentation. Just realizing that they are attempting to affect the way you think and feel helps you to maintain the integrity of your thought process. Thankfully, the number of Americans who are onto this game has been growing for the past two...

    My friend Tony Katz came up with the brilliant term “racer,” the definition of which is someone who dishonestly accuses someone else of racism for political advantage. If you watch the clip below of this Sunday’s “Meet the Press,” you’ll see David Gregory attempting to be a racer, but in the process he only ends up exposing his own bigotry: What kind of person hears “food stamps” and automatically thinks “Black people”? Well, that would be a bigot

    This just out from the Associated Press, another breathtaking but predictable piece of sleight-of-hand dishonesty directed at Sarah Palin’s credibility: [Palin] said she was proud Wisconsin conservatives prevailed against union “hatred and violence” — even though none of the protests in Madison ever became physically violent and only one person was arrested Saturday, for disorderly conduct, police said.

    Matt Lauer will follow Meredith Vieira out the door at NBC’s “Today” show. But not for a while, according to “Entertainment Tonight,” which reported the veteran show host had told his NBC bosses he’ll leave when his contract expires in December 2012. NBC officials would say nothing for the record on Wednesday. “There seems to be an awful lot of speculation around news anchors these days, and it’s not our practice to comment on any of it,” said a Today spokeswoman. “Matt Lauer has a long-term contract with NBC News and Today.”

    This is funny and sad at the same time. Katie Couric is out at CBS later this year and before she heads out the door, she slaps local CBS affiliates across the face and blames them for her poor ratings. Typical lib—it’s never their fault. Blame others and individual responsibility ends up on the cutting room floor.

    In another example of a sort-of cultural suicide where western media types assume that all Muslims are blameless – while all Americans are at fault in this clash of civilizations between Islamism and the West – we have a recent episode of MSNBC’s Hardball with one-time Democratic operative Chuck Todd standing-in for host Chris Matthews. Todd was discussing the riots in Afghanistan sparked by Islamist ire over the burning of a Koran by a Florida pastor. During the interview Todd and a guest stated that the Christian Bible was just a book written by men while the Koran was the...

    Sarah Palin said she was "through whining about a liberal press" last week, but evidently she's not done whining about the conservative press. The Daily Caller's Chris Moody contacted Palin for a response to reports that her reality show, Sarah Palin's Alaska, got $1.2 million in state tax credits. Palin demanded that Moody print her entire 650-word response to the news. And he did--but only on the second page of the article. So Palin took to Facebook to rant about "having to set the record straight on my Facebook page yet again is further proof that the media can't be...

    (Reuters) - The Washington Post apologized to an Arizona daily newspaper on Wednesday after a two-time Pulitzer-Prize winning reporter plagiarized coverage of accused Tucson gunman Jared Loughner. The Washington Post issued the apology to The Arizona Republic after two articles written by reporter Sari Horwitz, who won Pulitzers in 1999 and 2002, were found to contain "borrowed and duplicated" material from the newspaper.

    Main Street Radical ^ | 2/27/2011 | James Devere
    To hear the mainstream media discuss pro-union rallies this weekend, and the counter protests by the Tea Party, you would think that the evil Tea Party was out to violently destroy the poor downtrodden American worker. The narrative adopted by the media discounts the fact that Tea Partiers are, by and large, hardworking employed Americans who are just fed up with the fiscal insanity, including the sanctification of public employees. The media ignores the point that we are actually having a debate about, and two state governments have gone into hiding over, an argument as to whether or not...
