  • CNN anchor to protester: Hey, stop calling yourselves “real Americans”

    Hot Air ^ | August 17, 2009 | ALLAHPUNDIT
    All this poor guy meant by “real” is that the people at Obama’s town halls were true grassroots activists who went on their own initiative, not as fronts for the White House or some conservative astroturf operation. After three weeks of being smeared every which way as flakes and phonies by the guardians of tolerance, capped by Madam Speaker calling shouters un-American, who can blame him for stressing the point? Answer: Don Lemon, deciding that even the remote chance that viewers might take this as a challenge to the patriotism of ObamaCare supporters warranted an impromptu lecture on proper political...

    CNN anchor John Roberts failed to catch former Vice President Al Gore make a significant exaggeration about his criticism of the Bush administration in its early years during an interview on Friday’s American Morning. When asked about former Vice President Dick Cheney’s recent criticism of the Obama administration, Gore claimed that he had “waited two years after I left office to make statements that were critical, and then of the policy.” In reality, he made a significant policy speech denouncing the Bush administration’s pre-war policy towards Iraq in September 2002. CNN itself reported on the speech, which was made in...

    Prince Harry is taking Chelsy Davy on a romantic African holiday after persuading her to give their relationship another try. The couple will fly out this weekend after a series of heart-to-hearts about their future. They plan to spend the next few days soaking up some pre-Christmas sunshine. Chelsy, 22, is still intent on quitting her course at Leeds University and may return to Cape Town, where her parents have bought her an apartment. But the 23-year-old prince hopes to use their time away to talk the Zimbabwean-born student into staying in England. Said a friend: "It really is make-or-break...

    The American Prospect ^ | July 4, 2007 | J. Goodrich
    Why are so many pundits enamored of the Republican candidates' manliness -- and so eager to equate "presidential" with "masculine"? How do you decide who gets your vote in the presidential elections? Is it determined by the candidates' physical appearance, by the charisma they radiate or by the emotional strings they manage to tug deep inside you, conjuring childhood yearnings for security and a night-light after dark? And if you do cast your vote on these grounds rather than on the candidates' policies, do you want political pundits to tell you what they think about the looks, smells, and aura...

    Can JRE pull off a JFK, or an RFK? John Edwards plans to announce Monday that he’ll take a break from fund-raising and campaigning in early-voting states next week for a three-day, eight-state, 12-city “Road to One America” tour aimed at calling attention to poverty in the deep South, the Mississippi Delta, Appalachia and the Rust Belt. The campaign points out that none of the states he’ll visit has an early 2008 primary, and says Edwards won’t be doing rallies. Instead, TV viewers will see Edwards in coal country, Edwards in a factory, Edwards on a farm, Edwards in a...

Here's the full transcript of the "Right or Privilege" portion: Question: A college education? Edwards: Right. Q: Health care? E: Right. Q: A livable wage? E: Right. Q: Owning a handgun? E: Privilege. Q: American citizenship for someone not born here but has worked here for one year? E: Working for one year? That's a hard one, because I think people have to earn citizenship. I think I would have a period be longer...

    AMMAN, Jordan - On his first visit to the Middle East, Ricky Martin declared he will try to change negative perceptions of Arab youth in the West. "I promise I will become a spokesperson, if you allow me to, a spokesperson on your behalf. I will defend you and try to get rid of any stereotypes," the 33-year-old singer told youngsters from 16 mainly Arab countries at a youth conference on Monday. The children, ages 14 to 16, expressed concern about being labeled as "terrorists" by the West.

The California native is scheduled to open a major summer tour June 11 in Denver, and is so far set to visit about 30 cities this summer. He'll play a mix of small amphitheaters and casinos; details are in the itinerary below.

    COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - About 500 people braved cold temperatures and light snow Sunday to protest a conservative Christian group's campaign against gay rights and same-sex marriage. The protesters gathered in front of the Focus on the Family campus, holding rainbow flags, multicolored balloons and signs reading "God Loves Justice" and "Love Thy Neighbor." An American Indian group played drums and some protesters sang "We Shall Overcome." Focus on the Family, founded and led by James Dobson, has vigorously opposed gay rights and same-sex marriages, urging voters during last year's election to vote for President Bush and in favor of...

    Robert Redford and George Soros surely make one of the oddest couples in American pop culture. For most of us, Redford’s all-American good looks evoke images of the dashing outlaw Harry Longabaugh, better known as the Sundance Kid. By contrast, Soros’ gaunt visage, thousand-yard stare, thick Central European accent, levitating gray hair and megalomaniacal pronouncements weirdly echo those of the “Dr. Strangelove” character in Stanley Kubrick’s 1964 Cold War classic. The differences between these two men are only skin deep, however. Both owe allegiance to the far left. And both work quietly, in a sinister partnership, to flood U.S. media...

But this event’s sponsors reveal the agenda behind banning it. “There is a special place in hell for people like you!” These words were directed at me by a teacher during this past summer’s National Education Association (NEA) convention in Washington, D.C. This delegate to the NEA convention made his prediction in response to my presence at the NEA’s Ex-Gay Educators’ Caucus booth in the convention exhibit hall. His cheery salutation caught me off-guard given the message of tolerance and acceptance I had been hearing around the exhibit hall....

    The failure of "Alexander," the newspaper wrote, has "brutally exposed the cultural and moral divide which slices America in two." Uh-huh. "It is being suggested that a film about a global warrior with dyed blond hair and waxed legs was never going to conquer an America fresh out of a presidential election in which gay rights became a major issue." Is there another America they might be talking about? Major issue? Brutally exposed? The last thing an American movie brutally exposed was Kathy Bates in the hot-tub scene of "About Schmidt."

The musician, 42, who has opened for pop star Sting and is promoting his own CD, told USA Today that he's nuts about the morning show pixie. "She's brilliant and beautiful and really, really fun," Botti says of Couric, 47. She knows about music, "but then, she's up on everything. She's so intelligent." Rumors about Botti and Couric have been swirling for weeks. She recently broke up with Red Sox co-owner/media mogul Tom Werner. Couric first met Botti on the set of the "Today"...

    Debatable Debate Impressions, Part II Edwards – More than a Pretty Face? by Bob Redman (7 Oct. 2004) In my article about the first debate between Bush and Kerry I enumerated eleven of the many cheap shots which Kerry made. During the vice-presidential debate on Tuesday evening, Edwards repeated and/or elaborated on the cheap shots, and added some of his own. A detailed analysis of the whole tissue of obfuscation would run to several pages which most of you wouldn’t read to the end. I therefore content myself with the elucidation of only one of Edward’s trial lawyers' devices which...

    Former California Congressman Gary Condit is coming to New York — to try to clear his name over the mysterious death of intern Chandra Levy by pursuing his defamation suit against crime author Dominick Dunne. But lawyers for Dunne plan to grill Condit over his relationship with Levy, whose remains were found in Washington, D.C. in May 2002 after she had been missing for over a year. Condit charges that Dunne falsely linked him to Levy's disappearance. He's seeking $11 million in damages. Investigators concluded Condit was not a suspect, although he admitted to having an affair with Levy. No...

    How much have Sen. John Edwards' presidential ambitions affected his current job? Here's one yardstick: This month, he has made more trips to early nominating states than to the Senate floor. Edwards, a North Carolina Democrat, has missed 38 of the 42 roll-call votes since the U.S. Senate returned from its August recess, Winston-Salem Journal reported Thursday. His record is hardly unusual for a presidential candidate. In fact, it is better than the three other Senate Democrats in the race. But Republican critics have seized upon his absences to argue that Edwards -- who announced this month that he won't...

Edwards said in his address to the Democratic National Committee. "In two short years, George W. Bush has taught us what the W stands for: Wrong.
