  • Joe Biden Invents New Name For The President [Video]

    Joe Biden made three (or perhaps four) gaffes this past week, but a recent public speaking mishap might have flown under the media radar. In that instance, the VP seemingly made up a president who never existed. In a trifecta this week, the Democrat had to apologize for using the perceived anti-Semitic term “Shylocks,” referred to Asia as “the Orient” which was deemed offensive to Asian Americans, and praised former colleague Bob Packwood — a lawmaker who was chased out of the U.. Senate amidst sexual harassment charges in 1995 — in front of a women’s group. In August, moreover,...

    On his show Reliable Sources this morning, CNN host Brian Stelter defended Sarah Palin against media coverage of her family’s alleged “brawl” at a snowmobile party earlier this month. “Doesn’t Sarah Palin deserve the benefit of the doubt?” Stelter asked. He began the segment by airing a clip from Morning Joe in which host Joe Scarborough seemed to take a jab at what Stelter called Scarborough’s own network’s “saturation” of coverage over Gov. Chris Christie‘s “Bridgegate” scandal — or lack of. Stelter then took aim at the New York Daily News‘s coverage of the story, saying the newspaper did not...

    Talk about stretching your 15 minutes of fame into an hour. I cannot understand for the life of me why Sarah Palin is still talked about, listened to, reported on, or even thought about. The former Governor and former Vice Presidential candidate resigned from office back in 2009 and suffered one of the most crushing losses in a national election when she and Senator John McCain took on Barack Obama back in 2008, six years ago. Yet, with no public office, no real platform, no official position with the Party and no real legacy nationally or in Alaska, she still...

Apparently, Jeffrey Goldberg's intellectual superiority is so superior only dogs can hear it:Goldberg deleted the tweet. He didn't apologize. Because that would be an admission that comparing a conservative woman to a terrorist supporter is wrong. Instead...

It was so awful that I wanted to know who wrote it. The author, Robin Givhan, of course went on to win a Pulitzer. I’m part of a profession that rewards liberal political views above most all else.

    The story of the birthday bash brawl in Anchorage that took place on September 6 is the stuff that nightmares are made of if one is an important political figure.

The story soon spread around the world, with major media outlets picking it up. But as Real Cleat Politics suggested this Saturday, there are at least two sides to every story. The...

Members of the Palin family allegedly became embroiled in a brawl at a friend's home on 6 September. Early reports claimed that after arriving at the party in a stretch Hummer limousine, the former Governor of Alaska's son Track confronted a former boyfriend of his 20-year-old sister, Willow. A fight then broke out involving about 20 people, leaving Track with broken ribs and father Todd with a bloodied nose. Amid the...

He said that the problem began with Cleary engaging in some unnamed “questionable behavior,” after which he tried to get into the Hummer. Four men “piled on” top of Track. Seeing his son involved in a one-against-four battle, Todd Palin joined in, presumably to get the guys off of his kid. That was how he ended up being bloodied up.

    Via Facebook: No Drama Obama’s Summer Casual Agenda for America (or What He Didn’t Do On My Summer Vacation)There is absolutely nothing important going on in the world right now.There are no security threats, no worldwide turmoil affecting America’s interests, no civil war in Syria, South Sudan, or Libya. No war on our ally, Israel. No Ebola epidemic devastating West Africa and spreading. No race riots tearing apart a whole community in Missouri. No Russian aggression in Ukraine. No deranged North Korean dictator testing more missiles. No Chinese jets getting up close and personal with our American military. No brave American...

    I know what you’re thinking: “Yes, Hillary will be nominated, but Mitt Romney? Again?” The problem with all the other potential GOP presidential candidates is that either they are indicted (Perry), about to be indicted (Walker, Christie), the Tea Party hates them (Rubio, Paul), or they are just too crazy, even for the GOP (Cruz, Palin, Bachmann). Then there’s Bush III (Jeb). When you see him on TV, doesn’t he seem to be half-asleep? Even his own mother thought he wouldn’t be a good candidate. Paul Ryan? He just doesn’t LOOK “Presidential.” He looks like Hoody Doody, baby boomers’ favorite...

    The Manchester Guardian ^ | August 29, 2014 | David Robert Grimes
    Whether the issue is climate change, healthcare or gun control, libertarians are on a permanent collision course with evidence.The observation that science and politics make uneasy and often treacherous bedfellows is hardly revelatory. In science, all hypotheses must withstand the trial-by-fire of experiment; its methodology is self-correcting and objective, unconcerned with petty prejudices or personal conviction. Politics, by contrast, is deeply entangled with ideology – it is not bound to respect reality as science is, and thinks nothing of substituting convincing evidence for emotive rhetoric. And yet, when science and politics clash, it is all too often science that loses....

    Six years to the day after he accepted the Democratic presidential nomination in 2008, President Barack Obama announced that he did not have a strategy to combat ISIS, which recently beheaded American photojournalist James Foley. “I don't want to put the cart before the horse,” Obama said of ISIS at a Thursday press conference. “We don't have a strategy yet.” After Obama accepted the nomination in front of Greek columns on August 28, 2008, Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin asked, “But when the cloud of rhetoric has passed, when the roar of the crowd fades away, when the stadium...

    Republican strategist and former John McCain consultant Steve Schmidt has joined the team helping Texas Gov. Rick Perry with the strategy around his indictment, POLITICO has learned. Schmidt is the latest addition to a team that Perry has been expanding with legal hands. The Republican governor, a potential 2016 presidential candidate, has been indicted for allegedly abusing his power by vetoing funding to the office of a Democratic prosecutor who wouldn’t resign after a drunken driving arrest. “We’re bringing in the best of the best to help us handle this … this is serious, we’ve got to handle it with...
