  • The hero and the bad guys (She claims 4 out of 5 released Taliban are moderates)

    Th Manteca Bulletin ^ | June 7, 2014 | Susan Estrich
    On Saturday, Bowe Bergdahl was a hero, and the five members of the Taliban being freed in exchange for him were the worst of the worst. By the end of the week, it seemed that neither is actually true. The parade in Bergdahl’s Idaho hometown was canceled. Four of the five aren’t nice guys, but they aren’t war criminals, either. As for Bergdahl, I don’t pretend to know whether he deserted his unit. That is a question that can only be answered in a properly and fairly conducted court-martial. But the account that broke my heart was the interview with...

    First, Gloria Allred tells Sean Hannity she enjoyed the pat-down she received at the hands of the TSA. Now, liberal commentator Susan Estrich tells the TSA in an op-ed they "...can poke away all..." they want if it will keep her safe. Citing the so-called "underwear bomber", Estrich says she's fine with the "inconvenience" even if it means "elderly ladies" carrying one-way tickets get selected for scans. In her piece, she cites politicians and conservatives for fanning the controversy: A revolt is apparently growing at the grassroots level — being fanned by politicians and right-wing talking heads — against the...
  • Susan Estrich Suddenly 'Concerned' Over Paladino Qualifications to Become NY Governor

    Remember when liberals brushed aside any criticism of candidate Barack Obama being unqualified to become president because of his lack of executive experience? Well, that was then and this is now because Susan Estrich has suddenly developed "concern" over the qualifications of the Tea Party backed Republican gubernatorial candidate in New York, Carl Paladino. A skeptic might rightly believe this recent Estrich infatuation with qualifications could be inspired by the fact that Paladino is closing the gap in the polls with the Democrat candidate, Andrew Cuomo. Here is Estrich with her newly developed qualifications concern: The Republican nominee for governor...

    The dog ate my homework. That's not much of an excuse but at least it is better than the one Susan Estrich came up with as to one of the reasons why she changed her mind on the Ground Zero Mosque controversy. Estrich claims she thought they were talking about another mosque when Fox News asked her to comment on the mosque controversy. What other mosque? Anybody even slightly knowledgeable about current events will now instantly think "Ground Zero Mosque" when they hear about a mosque controversy. Not Susan Estrich. Here she is delivering her laughable excuse: Recently, I found...

    The conventional wisdom these days is that the best shot for Democrats heading into the November elections in marginal districts is for the president to raise money and lower his profile. Just send checks. Events after 7 p.m. Closed to the press. This is not an election Democrats want to "nationalize." Better to keep it local. Better to run as your own man or woman, not as the president's best friend. Republicans, by contrast, will spend as much time as they can running against the president. If his popularity is down to his base (low 40s), that means voters in...

    Not long ago, a close friend called me with an unusual request. She and her husband were looking for a new doctor to take care of them. What made it unusual was that they'd had the same doctor for years -- decades, actually. What happened to "J," I asked. Did I miss something in my otherwise careful reading of the obits? Had he hung up his stethoscope? None of the above. Her husband had turned 65 and was now eligible for Medicare. Good news -- except "J" is one of the increasing number of doctors who aren't taking "new" Medicare...

    There are some stories that make you cover your eyes with your hand and groan. And this column by Susan Estrich about what she thinks is the poorly named Apple iPad is definitely one of those. Here is Estrich putting on her feminist cap and making a very long stretch on blaming the name "iPad" on a "lack of diversity" at Apple: Is there a woman in America who did not laugh, or at least roll her eyes, the minute she heard that the newest, hottest tablet computer from one of America's most ingenuous companies was going to sound like...

    Susan Estrich worked for a number of years on the staff of Senator Ted Kennedy. Of course, she has some warm memories about working for him. However, in contrast to the almost uncritical lionization of Kennedy by such outlets as the Associated Press and the Los Angeles Times as well as by Evan Thomas of Newsweek, Estrich was able to look at her former boss, warts and all, in a surprisingly frank remembrance in her column. She did not attempt to bury his faults as you can see in this critique of his speaking style: The first time I wrote...

    It is one thing for conservatives to criticize President Obama's QAHCAA (Quality, Affordable Health Coverage for All Americans) health care plan but now even a number of liberals are attacking it as unworkable. We recently saw skepticism emanating from Morning Joe's Mika Brzezinski and now fellow liberal, Susan Estrich, is expressing deep doubt that any such plan is economically feasable. Estrich kicks off her column with a sarcastic look at the "success" of Obama's stimulus plan: The stimulus program must really be succeeding in Washington, D.C. Government is hiring; people are working. In fact, if news reports are to be...

    Susan Estrich is worried. Very worried. She believes that the current coordinated Democrat strategy of attacking Rush Limbaugh is completely counterproductive. And she's right: He talks for hours every day. He gets paid to talk. Just talk. Doing it well is no small thing; witness the number of people who have tried to be him, or be the NOT-him, and failed. But he doesn't have to build a coalition. He doesn't need the votes of the other side to earn his check. He doesn't have to write the legislation, convince Olympia Snowe, raise money to keep the lights on, put...

    They say love conquers all and this might just be the case with Susan Estrich. The normally liberal columnist seems to be absolutely smitten with Todd Palin. Her recent column sounds more like a love note to him than a political analysis: First Dude. That's what they call him in Alaska. It's OK. Todd's Ok. Whatever. He smiles at Greta Van Susteren. Not a touch of noblesse. More like plan old politesse.

    Think you've got problems? Consider the perils of Susan Estrich. Divorced, she has to eke out a living as a lawyer to support her two children. The demands of that job mean she doesn't get to see the kids as often as she likes. She is overweight and lacks the discipline to exercise regularly. Her house is a mess, and unethical rug cleaners wrecked her living-room floor. Wait, it gets worse. Her nanny lacks medical insurance because the application form is too confusing for Estrich to fill out. Estrich herself has health care, but complications from a recent surgical procedure...

    LOS ANGELES — The other day, liberal talk radio host Randi Rhodes was reportedly out walking her dog when she fell and hit her head. She didn’t remember what happened, which led at least one of her colleagues, and countless bloggers, to speculate that she had literally been a victim of the Right-wing hit machine. Not so, as it turned out. No one hit her, Right wing or otherwise. She fell. The colleague who had ranted about the Right attacking her apologized and took it all back. End of story? Not quite.

    Once upon a time, not so long ago, there were two frontrunners in the race for the presidency. On the Democratic side, it was Hillary Rodham Clinton; "the rock star and the rest" was the title of one memorable National Journal assessment of the race. On the Republican side, it was John McCain. We Democrats were actually pretty worried about McCain. He was old, but he didn't seem it; what he seemed was experienced, independent, his own man, the one candidate in the Republican field who had the advantage of having gone through the process before. It seemed sufficiently inevitable...

    Ann Coulter is at it again. As the author of one of the anti-Godless books (mine is called "Soulless"), I suppose I should be happy, but I would happily sacrifice book sales to elevate the political discourse. To be honest, I had almost concluded that Ann had disappeared, at least from my radar screen, and if that meant less interest in my answering her outlandish charges, it was a small price to pay. No such luck. The occasion for Ann's return to white-hot prominence is strictly commercial. Her paperback edition of "Godless," the book that made headlines by ridiculing 9/11...

I certainly don't remember signing up, or agreeing to another fee to encourage me to use their card. There was also a "Flexible Rewards Summary," telling me that in addition to the 39 points I would get for paying the fee, I...

    The war is George Bush's Monica Lewinsky. It is his undoing — the public playing out of his fatal flaws, and the reason his second term will come to naught. It is the product of this president's arrogance and insecurity, as surely as an affair with an intern was the reflection of Bill Clinton's needs and denial. But unlike the last president's foolish affair, which he paid for dearly, we pay for this one. The difference between sex and war is the difference between a mistake even his wife can come to laugh about, and one that is an abiding...

    his is not the way the system is supposed to operate. Prosecutors are supposed to be out for justice, not blood; committed to the truth, at all costs, not winning, without more. Prosecutors aren’t just morally obliged but legally required to turn over exculpatory evidence to the defense. Prosecutors aren’t just one side in a battle. You can’t come across the smoking gun covered with fingerprints on it – come across it because you have the power of the state to collect all the evidence – and then decide to ignore it because they don’t match the fingerprints of the...

    ESTRICH BOOK EXPOSES STOCK HILLARY PLOY: EXPLOIT WOMEN(even as ABC's "Commander-in-Chief" exposes ploy's premise as false) by Mia T, 10.12.05     It isn't that they can't see the solution. It is that they can't see the problem. G. K. Chesterton   While America appears not to be ready for a female president under any circumstances, the post-9/11 realities pose special problems for a female presidential candidate. Add to these the problems unique to missus clinton. The reviews make the mistake of focusing on the problems of the generic female presidential candidate running during ordinary times. These are not...

    My fans are angry with me. I'm supposed to be fair and balanced. I'm a Bush critic, not a Bush Hater. I'm the one who always smiles and laughs. So why am I so tough on the Man? To say that I've been getting a lot of mail lately is an understatement. Most of it makes certain points that are, of course, valid. Yes, I know: -- that Bill Clinton didn't build the levees to withstand more than a Category 3 storm, either; -- that both the governor and the mayor are Democrats; -- that they were responsible for ordering...

    Did an ABC staffer insert the following lines in an email sent by celebrity antiwar mother Cindy Sheehan? ''Am I emotional? Yes, my firstborn was murdered. Am I angry? Yes, he was killed for lies and for a Neo-Con agenda to benefit Israel. My son joined the Army to protect America, not Israel." That is what Sheehan is claiming. If you don't believe that explanation -- if you don't believe an ABC staffer set about to put anti-Semitic words into Cindy Sheehan's mouth -- then your hero, my liberal friends, is a raging, ignorant anti-Semite. Sorry, but what are...

    I work for Fox News as a commentator. I say whatever I want. I'm the blonde on the left, figuratively and literally – the one who's usually smiling because it's television, not the Supreme Court or Congress, and I find civility more effective in any event. Besides, why shouldn't I be smiling? Prior to working for Fox, I worked for ABC and NBC, spent a lot of time at CNN and almost ended up at CBS. I worked for a bunch of local stations in Los Angeles and had a talk radio show at KABC for six years. Story Continues...

    If Susan Estrich wants to improve America’s opinion pages, she should stand up for more diversity of thought. She assumed he would understand. But he didn’t. Emailing the head of Op-Ed at the Los Angeles Times to protest the unjust treatment of women writers seemed like a good idea -- until the rest of the country found out, igniting a firestorm of feminist tetchiness and good-natured derision. She never expected to find a fellow female columnist calling her campaign “crazed” and “nasty.” This wasn’t good, and she knew it. “Depending on the day or the paper,” wrote Susan Estrich, professor,...

    Like many women of a certain age, I have a bad habit, first learned in the 1960s and '70s. Whenever I'm in a professional setting, I count the number of women in the room. These days there are occasions when I don't have enough fingers and toes to do the job. Which brings me to the present, and an ugly little spat that is roiling the waters of opinion journalism in the same way that Lawrence Summers's comments about the dearth of women in math and science rocketed through the academy. Op-ed pages, the accepted wisdom insists, don't carry enough...

    Out here, in L.A., we have recently been treated to a colossal hissy fit that had liberals gunning for other liberals. One would think that any right-thinking conservative would happily sit back and watch the blood run in the gutters. But even in a battle royal that pits lefties against their own kind, a fair-minded person can’t help taking sides. On one side, you have the knee-jerk liberal editors at the L.A. Times wearing the white trunks or, in this case, at least the white hats; on the other side, you have the idly rich women of the Westside –...

    Last Sunday, Maureen Dowd lamented the dearth of women on the opinion pages of America's newspapers. She herself is the only female op-ed columnist at The New York Times. The Washington Post has but one. Bloggers, all opinion all the time, are overwhelmingly male. Dowd's reflections were sparked by University of Southern California feminist Susan Estrich. Last month, Estrich attacked Michael Kinsley, comment pages editor of the Los Angeles Times, for refusing to publish her submissions. Cattily undermining her case, Estrich penned a scathing ad hominem to Kinsley, suggesting the Parkinson's disease that afflicts him "may have affected your brain."...

    This week I had planned to write a column about Sinn Fein, the political front organization for the Irish Republican Army, whose leaders have recently been linked to acts of murder and grand larceny. I chose the subject because I wrote often about the IRA while living in Britain in the 1990s, because I've worked as a reporter in Belfast, because it's timely -- tomorrow is St. Patrick's Day -- and because there might be lessons in the story for Hamas and Hezbollah, terrorist groups that may or may not be able to make the transition to democratic politics as...

    I have rarely been this royally ticked off. However, nothing prepared me for the statements of Fox News analyst and law professor Susan Estrich calling for a feminist campaign against the Los Angeles Times. Ms. Estrich's grievance is that the newspaper has failed to publish enough articles by women (like her own syndicated column) on its editorial page. Described in the press as "belligerent" and "semiliterate," Ms. Estrich's tirades became increasing unhinged after it became clear that Mr. Kinsley would not yield to her ultimatums. Indeed, Ms. Estrich went to all caps in offering Mr. Kinsley "ONE MORE CHANCE BEFORE...

    On Thursday, The Examiner printed an e-mail by University of Southern California professor Susan Estrich accusing the Los Angeles Times of sexual discrimination against women writers. We also ran a rebuttal by Michael Kinsley, opinion and editorial editor at the Times. Since then, they have been e-mailing each other back and forth - CCing David Mastio, The Examiner's editorial page editor, in the process. We are running them virtually unedited.Run my letter - or else From: Susan Estrich To: Kinsley, Michael Subject: RE: my letter to the editor I am sending over my letter this morning.
