    Excellence In Broadcasting ^ | March 14, 2011 | Rush Limbaugh
    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Ladies and gentlemen, there's a story at Politico today. I'm gonna have to turn to some of you for some help. I thought I had this figured out, but it's gone beyond my ability to explain this, and that is this incessant, inexplicable, growing hatred of Sarah Palin by people on our side. The Politico story here: "'She's Becoming Al Sharpton, Alaska Edition.'" This is by Jonathan Martin and John Harris. "Sarah Palin has played the sexism card, accusing critics of chauvinism against a strong woman. She has played the class card, dismissing the Bush family as...

    Prominent New Hampshire Republican Judd Gregg says that Sarah Palin just might have a clearer path to the Republican presidential nomination next year than commonly understood – an event he warns would lead to President Obama's clear reelection. Gregg, the former senator and governor of the Granite State, says the muddled GOP presidential field means it's more likely than ever there won't be a clear consensus candidate before the party's nominating convention in August of 2012. If that happens, says Gregg, Palin and her army of supporters might have the upper hand when it comes to settling on a presidential...

    A Bloomberg News poll released Thursday shows trouble for the potential presidential candidacy of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin. A vast majority of respondents viewed Palin unfavorably. Sixty percent had an unfavorable view of Palin, compared with only 28 percent with a favorable one. President Obama had a personal favorability rating of 55 percent with 41 percent viewing him unfavorably. Two other potential Republican candidates for the presidency, businessman Donald Trump and former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, had low favorability ratings. Trump was viewed favorably by 37 percent of respondents and unfavorably by 43 percent. Gingrich was viewed...

    Paul Johnson doesn't suffer from PDS like some others. Rather he sees Sarah Palin as a courageous leader and likes "the cut of her jib." The celebrated British historian and journalist Paul Johnson expounded on American exceptionalism, the Tea Party and Sarah Palin in a Wall Street Journal interview this past Saturday. He's optimistic about this "marvelous country" and its ability to overcome the forces working to undermine its greatness. Johnson specifically credits conservative women as key players in shaping a new direction for the country in 2012. Interviewed in his West London home the prolific author offered a buoyant,...

    Rep. Michele Bachmann Thursday noticeably sidestepped the long-standing issue of President Obama's citizenship, saying "it's not for me to state" whether the president is or is not an American citizen. "That isn't for me to state, that's for the president to state," the Republican congresswoman from Minnesota and Tea Party favorite said on ABC's "Good Morning America" when asked about lingering doubts among some Americans that the president was not born in the United States. "When the president makes his statements, I think they need to stand for their own," Bachmann also said when asked if she believed the president's...

    Sarah Palin told reporters that she would have no problem with the porn lobby being cosponsors and holding respected seats at the table at last week's CPAC meeting. Nor does she have a problem with Planned Parenthood. After all, these are "different, diverse groups involved in political discourse" – so why not allow them all to crowd in under the "conservative" umbrella? Actually, she didn't say these things, but instead told Fox News "gay" groups had a right to be at CPAC. But, why not these others as well? Don't they fit her broad qualifications, as stated above? Why not...

    Sarah Palin may be a weak candidate in a general election in New Mexico, but she would receive significant support in the primary, according to a poll by Public Policy Polling. The survey also shows that though former Gov. Gary Johnson would be the strongest GOP candidate against President Barack Obama in New Mexico, he would be tied for fourth place in a Republican primary. Former Alaska governor and vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin tops the Republican field in a presidential primary in New Mexico with 20 percent of the support among Republican primary voters. She’s followed by Arkansas governor...

    As I stood in front of the vile posters of Sarah Palin, I felt anger and rage. Above all, I felt powerless. In the days after the Arizona shootings someone had plastered these horrible images on a fence surrounding an empty lot. My gut reaction was to destroy them. Why? I began to question my urge to act in such a primal manner. It felt uncomfortable, and yet the urge was strong. Who had taught me to react like this? This was not the kind of person I wanted to be. The more I thought about these conflicting emotions, the...

    A Democratic official points out that Sarah Palin's latest attack on the Obama administration's budget cuts is not quite accurate. On Twitter, Palin writes "Here's how minuscule the White House's $775 million a year cuts are: less than 1/10 of 1% of this year's budget deficit," responding to an op-ed by Obama budget director Jacob Lew...

    Our country finds itself at a troubling crossroads. We confront challenges from forces that are opposed to its very existence as the nation our founders created. These forces are secular and religious and are poised to attack the foundations of our nation both at home and abroad. In facing them conservatives have a special responsibility as a patriotic vanguard dedicated to the principles that have made America what it is, and who are willing to confront the enemies that seek to destroy her. At home the adversary calls itself a progressive movement but its goal is to transform America into...

    As the 2012 presidential race approaches, the Republicans are exploring all possibilities to deny Barack Obama a second term. As the potential Republican candidates met in Washington for the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), the real estate mogul Donald Trump made a surprise appearance to reiterate the possibility of him running for president in 2012. Among the likes of Mike Huckabee, Mitt Romney and Ron Paul, the real estate mogul will have to first beat out the ever popular Sarah Palin to even be considered. Although Trump flirted with the idea way back in 1999 when Bill Clinton was the...

Well, a Palin reprieve from the spotlight sounds like Eden to me. The world is calm. There is a peaceful silence falling on a happy society. Oh the glory of not hearing a screeching hoot owl. This wondrous moment could be yours if you follow the “Boycott Sarah Palin for a Week” campaign. This just sounds so heavenly, it is almost unimaginable. However, I just know in my heart of hearts...

    Today Karl Rove was on the Fox News Channel, talking about the CPAC Straw Poll, and if it really means anything. He Said ,”3742 people voted in the straw poll; 11,000 people attended the CPAC. So two-thirds of the people who attended didn’t even bother to vote.” He then was asked his thoughts on the GOP Frontrunners, when he exclaimed, "The front runners are going to be those that are better known, like Governor Romney and Governor Palin, or those that are serving governors or recently serving governors, Governor Barbour, Governor Daniels, Governor Pawlenty. But it’s going to be an...

    For the second year in a row, Ron Paul won the presidential straw poll at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference, earning 30 percent of the vote. The Texas congressman, known for his libertarian views, ran for president in 2008 but was never a serious contender for the GOP nomination. Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, a 2008 GOP candidate who is expected to run again, came in second place with 23 percent of the vote. Romney won the previous three presidential straw polls before Paul snapped his streak last year.

    Returning champion Rep. Ron Paul has once the 2011 CPAC straw poll with 30% of the vote, with only one other candidate scoring a double-digit percentage: former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney. Trailing far behind but worthy of note were also former New Mexico governor Gary Johnson and New Jersey Chris Christie, with the loudest potential candidates– Sarah Palin and Rick Santorum, barely receiving mention. Paul, who received ebullient praise from the crowd with a speech slamming nearly every important social and neo-conservative policy point, is used to this sort of praise at CPAC, so his win is not particularly surprising....

    As Sarah Palin ramps up her Presidential bid, and her nomination seems increasingly likely, look for the media narrative to shift to her unelectability. This is designed not so much to deny her the nomination as it is to dispirit and to demoralize her voters in the coming general election matchup with President Obama. Yet, for a number of reasons, principally the Democrats' dismal performance among white voters in the recent midterms, it is not Palin's supporters who should be demoralized, but Obama's. Let's start with President Obama's performance among white voters in 2008. In 2008, Obama got the highest...
  • 'Oopsies!': Us Weekly apologizes to Sarah Palin over using fake quotes

    Whoops! Us Weekly ran a story quoting Sarah Palin demanding that Christina Aguilera be “deported” over her botched performance of the national anthem at Super Bowl XLV. The only problem: It never happened. The item “quoted” Palin trashing Aguilera as “a demanding beauty queen who’s clearly in over her head” and adding for good measure, “If I were president, I’d deport Ms. Augilera back to wherever it is she’s from and give Amy Smart a call.” The fake quotes originated from an Onion-like satirical web site, relaying a fictional radio interview between the former Governor of Alaska and Fox News...

    Our good friends over at Conservatives4Palin have come up with a good solid list of 47 reasons Gov. Sarah Palin is qualified to be President, all in honor of her 47th birthday. Here are just a few: 1) She won’t perjure herself by taking the Presidential oath of office like many of her potential opponents. 2) She has 9 years of executive experience, more than 3 times as much as the current President. As Governor, she held the 2nd most powerful gubernatorial office in the country. 3)She knows how to budget. In her years as Governor, she reduced the state...

    On whether the United States should have been giving foreign aid to President Mubarak: “Over 30 years of standing by Mubarak’s side and he essentially standing with America on a lot of our interests it makes sense that we have a reciprocal relationship but no it is not moral or ethical. We are watching Mubarak and realizing the billions of dollars that have been spent, he’s become rich, a lot of the dictatorship has personally benefited. So where do those funds end up? We need to pull back on those countries where the money isn't doing any good."

    WASHINGTON – Conservatives spoke out Thursday in favor of stepping up border enforcement while criticizing so-called reform plans they dismiss as "amnesty" for illegal immigrants in speeches and panel discussions at the Conservative Political Action Conference. The Republican leadership in Washington isn't expected to raise immigration as a front-burner issue in the near term, they said, but conservatives are even more skeptical of any “immigration reform” proposals that might bubble up from the Obama administration or from bipartisan ranks. “Anybody that brings up amnesty in this Congress, we need to just take the scarlet 'A' for amnesty and pin it...

    Michele Bachmann, who is speaking on Thursday at CPAC, says she's still on the fence about whether she'll run for the Republican presidential nomination in 2012. "I haven't made a decision one way or another," the Minnesota congresswoman said on Fox News. "Right now, what I'm trying to do is make sure we continue the national dialogue on the issues that are important to us. Certainly we will be discussing the identity of who our nominee will be but that can't dominate the next two years of the election cycle."

    David Keene, the longtime chairman of the American Conservative Union, stepped down on Wednesday as the leader of the organization, one day ahead of the first of its annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC). Keene had chaired the organization since 1984 and will still preside over the annual conservative gathering. His impending exit had been anticipated, but not the timing. Al Cardenas was selected to succeed Keene. Cardenas was born in Cuba in 1948, and has been a player in conservative politics since the Reagan presidency. “I look forward to taking advantage of the new energies we see today in...
