  • Why are liberals so rude to the right?

    The Guardian ^ | May 27, 2013 | Leften Wright
    Too many people who lean left would rather crack nasty jokes than actually be liberal and listen to other views. Why is it that liberals feel no qualms about being rude? Far too many people who are perfectly polite and courteous, otherwise, think nothing of insulting you for not sharing their political opinions. They look at us with disdain, thinking we're unenlightened conservatives and never hesitating to say so. As the lone conservative at the tennis courts, I cringe at the Sarah Palin jokes and the jabs at Mormons. When news came on 9/11 that planes had struck the World...

    In one of those ceremonial pageants the Brits invented, former Prime Minister and Baroness Margaret Hilda Thatcher's funeral unfolded this morning on the old streets of London to the sounds of the classical music she loved and the Bible verses at a service in Sir Christopher Wren's St. Paul's Cathedral. So great is the global appreciation and admiration for the Iron Lady who led Great Britain from 1979-90, that some 2,000 dignitaries attended, including in an historic breach of protocol Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip. This was the first funeral of a former prime minister the monarch has attended...

    Paul Ryan, the Republican vice presidential nominee in the last election, was booed at President Barack Obama's Second Inauguration today in Washington, D.C. "If things had gone differently in November, Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) might have departed the Capitol on Monday as the vice president of the United States. Instead, he faced a chorus of boos as he left the building to attend President Barack Obama's second inauguration ceremony," reports the Huffington Post. The left-leaning website reports that Ryan attended the Inauguration out of duty. "Ryan announced last week that he would be present for Obama's public swearing in at...

    At the second presidential debate on Tuesday night, a camera caught first lady Michelle Obama clapping after moderator Candy Crowley told Republican presidential candidate Gov. Mitt Romney that President Obama called the Benghazi attack an "act of terror" soon after the attack on the U.S. consulate. Nearly all of the audible applause came from those sitting away from the actual debate, but when FOX News' camera shot moved to a bird's-eye view it became apparent that the only applause from the participating debate audience came from first lady Michelle Obama. Mitt Romney's wife Ann was also sitting with the debate...

    Washington Examiner ^ | 10/12/2012 | Byron York
    DANVILLE, Kentucky -- There are two ways to judge Thursday's vice presidential debate between Joe Biden and Paul Ryan, and no one yet knows which one voters will choose. The first is on the substance of what was discussed. That debate was about a tie, with Biden winning on issues like Medicare and Afghanistan, and Ryan winning on taxes and Libya. Judged on the substance, it seems unlikely that debate will change much of anything in the broader presidential race. The second way to judge the debate is on style, but that really means just one thing: Joe Biden's demeanor....

He was like a Cheshire cat with his inappropriate smile, and it was like a political speech without anybody else in the dialogue. Paul Ryan was knowledgeable and tried to have a serious discussion on very important issues....

    DES MOINES, Iowa — Paul Ryan's remarks at the Iowa State Fair in Des Moines today turned into a confrontational scene when hecklers sought to drown him out and then rush the stage. Ryan had barely begun speaking when a woman shouted, "Are you going to cut Medicare?" Two women rushed the stage, and one was apparently arrested by three Iowa State Patrolmen after getting on stage with a banner. "Woah...hey...alright...she must not be from Iowa," said a rattled Ryan as the woman got on stage and grabbed by police. The officers bounded out from behind the stage to pull...

    Mitt Romney might have thought it was eminently sensible in an NBC interview in London to repeat exactly what the TV networks had already reported on security at the London Olympics, namely, that there was room for concern. Romney succeeded only in demonstrating how unbelievably shameless and partisan our "objective" media can be. The networks and national newspapers aggressively declared Romney had committed a diplomatic fiasco overseas and repeated London tabloid headlines heckling Romney with insults, such as "Mitt the Twit." Here's what the networks said pre-Romney. On the July 24 "Good Morning America," ABC reporter Nick Schifrin lamented "an...

Simple ingredients, but that’s all you need for a tasty summer stew of manufactured outrage that keeps the news cycle churning. September can’t get here soon enough, my friends. Alternate headline: “Conservative support for Romney now at 100 percent.”

    Sarah Palin made it to the Dancing With the Stars set Monday night after much speculation that she was going to come last week, but it’s unclear if it was a warm welcome or not. When last week’s winner, Jennifer Grey and her partner were getting their scores, audible booing was heard. Co-host Brooke Burke said, “There’s booing in the ballroom. We don’t know why.” Grey then asked, “Why is there booing?” The camera quickly cut to co-host Tom Bergeron, who was sitting next to Sarah Palin, sporting a stunned look on her face and shaking her head.

    Barack Obama seems to have a pattern of using ceremonial or stately events as opportunities to ambush and humiliate people. This behavior is unpresidential and reveals a vindictive streak that makes Richard Nixon look like Mister Rogers. A few examples of Obama's taking pleasure in administering public pain to others: During the State of the Union Address, he chose to direct his ire at the justices of the Supreme Court, located in the front rows. After the Supreme Court issued a ruling in favor of the First Amendment regarding political speech, Barack Obama famously chose to dress down the black-clad...

Responding to a law student's question when speaking at the University of Alabama, Chief Justice Roberts took aim at Mr....

    When Sen. Al Franken, Minnesota Democrat, was a comedian, he was never that funny. Take the title of his book "Rush Limbaugh Is a Big Fat Idiot" - that's some high-quality humor there. Clever, daring and yet so second grade. But when Minnesotans elected him to the Senate, Mr. Franken promised that those days were behind him and that he would work hard to win over his colleagues. So far, his presence in the Senate is making it a less civil place. If the old Mr. Franken were to write a book about it, the title might be "Al Franken...

    Twice recently, Mr. Franken's obnoxiousness was on public display. On Dec. 14, after having missed most of a talk by Sen. John Thune, Mr. Franken tore into him, time after time accusing the South Dakota Republican of being dishonest by claiming that the Senate bill would hike taxes immediately while delaying the "spending benefits."

    New York's famously garrulous senior senator, Chuck Schumer, got busted Wednesday for calling a female flight attendant the B-word aboard a US Airways flight from New York to Washington on Sunday. Schumer was sitting next to protege Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, gabbing away on his phone, when a flight attendant told him to shut it down. Schumer turned off his phone, and then argued with the attendant that he was allowed to talk while the cabin door is open. He lost.

    Barack Obama has arrived in Oslo to receive his Nobel peace prize amid considerable anger over the White House's decision to cancel a series of events normally attended by the prizewinner. Obama is scheduled to meet the Norwegian prime minister, Jens Stoltenberg, and the Norwegian royal family before receiving his medal at a ceremony due to begin at midday. His main speech is scheduled at a banquet tonight. But Norwegians are incensed over what they view as his shabby response to the prize by cutting short his visit. The White House has cancelled many of the events peace prize laureates...

    Asked about the several thousand protestors who gathered on Capitol Hill today to protest Democratic health care reform legislation, White House press secretary Robert Gibbs joked about one of the actors who was a featured speaker at the rally, saying, “I'm sure there's a Jon Voight joke in here somewhere, given he was one of the featured speakers, but…my father always told me my mouth would get me in trouble, and I have a feeling if I acted on the line that I'd like to give you, I'm almost positive that it would.” Voight spoke at the rally, decrying the...

    The rabble-rousing Rev should give his daughter a sermon about road rage. The Rev. Al Sharpton’s ex-wife and daughter were arrested last night after berating a pair of Harlem cops who pulled them over for running a red light in the wrong lane to get around their slow-moving, unmarked cruiser, sources told The Post. Kathy Jordan, 53, and her daughter, Dominique Sharpton, 23, were handcuffed and hauled to a precinct, where the raging reverend’s daughter tried to no avail to get off the hook because of her family ties, the sources said. They were issued desk appearance tickets before being...
