  • Mary Matalin: Trump Wrong, Jeb Is an 'Energizer Bunny'

    GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump has an electable message, but is dead wrong on calling rival Jeb Bush "low energy," says Mary Matalin, a longtime political adviser to the Bush family. "Donald Trump can say whatever he wants to say about Jeb, but saying that he’s low-energy is wrong because the guy is an Energizer Bunny," Matalin said Sunday on "The Cats Roundtable" on AM 970 in New York. Bush has a record as a conservative governor in Florida that is often overlooked by people who compare him to his father, former President George H.W. Bush, and his brother, former...

    There was a really delicious exchange on ABC’s This Week Sunday that conservatives across the fruited plain will greatly enjoy. After hate-spewing MSNBC contributor Michael Eric Dyson bashed former Vice President Dick Cheney for once wanting Nelson Mandela put on a terrorist list, Matalin shot back, “When will you ever get tired of beating up on Darth Vader” (video follows with transcript and commentary): Mary Matalin Smacks Down MSNBC’s Dyson: ‘Will You Ever Get Tired of Beating Up On Darth Vader?

  • Can Conservatives Have Liberal Friends, Or Even Partners?

    Yes and no. Yes, as in, it is possible, and no, as in, it’s not normal in the soul sense. Of course, one immediately thinks of famous, mysteriously married, bi-partisan power-couples such as top republican consultant Mary Matalin and top democrat strategist James Carville. They’ve been happily wedded for twenty years. Amazingly, they actually met (in 1991) while each was about to be hired to manage opposing presidential campaigns; Matalin for George H. W. Bush, and Carville for Bill Clinton. They claim publicly that they don’t talk politics at home. When they appear on TV together, it’s actually pretty amusing...

    FREEPER COMMENTS REQUESTED: Is it just me, or is Mary Matalin way off base today with her entire theme for the show (guest hosting for Rush). Now I normally like her work tremendously, but her idea that we should search for "virtue" in government and for "virtuous people" to be in government seems extremely naive. The only virtue in government is its limit. We will never get a government full of virtuous people. By definition, government is power and virtuous people are not drawn to that. Our Founders knew that. This is why they insisted on LIMITED government. Wake up...

    The former executive director for the American Conservative Union has agreed to serve on the advisory council for GOProud, a homosexual lobby that has approved of same-sex "marriage" and the repeal of the "Don't Ask Don't Tell" policy that allowed homosexuals to serve in the military if they didn't make an issue of their lifestyle choice even though the law banned that. According to an announcement today from GOProud, Chuck Muth, the former executive director of the ACU, is joining the GOProud leadership team. Christopher Barron, chairman of GOProud's board, said in a prepared statement the organization was honored to...

    While trickery is a concern, the tracking all seems to be on Scott Brown's side. They have great turnout and ballot-integrity operations in place. The local pollster who always picks the three bellwether counties has Brown exceeding Cellucci's and Romney's numbers. Martha Coakley started cratering when Bill Clinton came in and imploded after Obama's attack on the truck. 59 percent think she ran a negative campaign; 15 percent think he did. Millions came in online in the last week. Conservatives have noted this but it has otherwise gone mostly unreported: Brown ran not only on the 41st anti-health-care vote, but...

    Mary Matalin, former counselor to Vice President Dick Cheney, is joining likely presidential candidate Fred Thompson’s team and will serve as an unpaid adviser. Matalin, who served as treasurer for Sen. George Allen’s unsuccessful re-election campaign last year, is a friend of Thompson and his wife Jeri, reports. Also joining the Thompson team is Lawrence Lindsey, President George Bush’s first economic adviser and a proponent of his tax cuts. He will serve as chief architect of Thompson’s economic policy. Meanwhile, President Bush’s nephew George P. Bush – son of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush – has contributed to Thompson’s...

"This is more like a bake-off," a visibly embarrassed Mrs. Walters said after the roasting, expressing disappointment that Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York and fellow roaster Sen. Mary L.

Rush even asked how "serpenthead" is doing at the beginning and Mary said that that they don't talk politics in an election year. They went on to talk about how the democrats and the media are going into basic overkill overdrive over abu gharib. After the break, Rush and Mary, talked about Mary's new book "Letters to my Daughters". It is basically Mary writing down advice for her daughters if she passes away. She did it because her mother passed away when she was young. They got into...

Matalin, who was Vice President Dick Cheney's top public relations strategist until she resigned in December to spend more time with her young daughters, is writing the book for Matty, 7, and Emma, 5. The book, slated for publication for Mother's Day 2004, is tentatively titled, "Letters to My Daughters." Matalin says it will be filled with motherly advice about life; "everything I want them to know (after I'm gone.)" "I want to crystallize my own value system for them," said Matalin,...

Sweet-McKinnon, a public defender in Sedgwick County, in an election in November. Sweet-McKinnon was unopposed in the Democratic primary, while Becker, a Republican, beat deputy Reno County Attorney Thomas Stanton by a 5,097-to-3,036 vote in Tuesday's primary. The two filed for office together in June when they were in Topeka for the annual judge's conference. ``We spent the night together, then we went to the secretary of state's office...
