    Palin and Joe the Plumber on Fire RUSH: Sarah Palin was on WMAL today, our affiliate in the nation's capital. She was on with Chris Plante this morning, and he said to her, "Is the news media doing their job? Are you getting a fair shake?" PALIN: If they convince enough voters that that is negative campaigning for me to call Barack Obama out on his associations, then I don't know what the future of our country would be in terms of First Amendment rights and our ability to ask questions without fear of attacks by the mainstream media.

    Last night, during Austin Hill's radio show on 630 WMAL in Washington, DC, a caller named Max from Arlington (VA) called in suggesting that Americans grab their plungers (a sanitized one, please!) and march at the Washington Mall with plungers in hand and in support of John McCain and Sarah Palin and Joe the Plumber -- and to reject the Democratic Congress and also Barack Obama and his absurd tax policies. I thought it was an excellent call and a great idea! E-mail Austin at the link provided if you're interested in this.

    Edelman Financial ^ | September 30, 2008 | Ric Edelman
    Until last week, we had applauded all the actions of U.S. Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson, Jr. His handling of the financial crisis had been flawless. However, Secretary Paulson and Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke made a serious misstep last week when they presented their proposal to Congress. They called their plan a “bailout” and emphasized the need for $700 billion in funds. This proved to be a public relations disaster and has been largely responsible for the delay in getting the proposal approved by Congress. In fact, the proposal is neither a bailout nor $700 billion. Yet these are the...

  • Why My Sundays Are So Lonely (and why I’d leave my husband for Matt Drudge or Jerry Klein)

    07/27/2008 2:04:46 PM PDT · by SilvieWaldorfMD · 41 replies · 309+ views
    <p>The difference between going through a Sunday as a married woman versus as a single gal is striking. First of all, in my single hood days in D.C., I’d be arriving back at my condo in the wee hours of the morning and would sleep and nurse a hangover for the rest of the day. As a married woman and mom in suburban Maryland, my Sundays are quiet and mainly consist of doing things with my family or around the house. However, during football season my husband and son normally get involved with sports and “NFL Sunday” for the whole day, giving me precious time to myself. During this “precious time”, I read the newspapers, watch news programs on T.V. and other media, and listen to talk radio for the entire afternoon and evening. Until recently.</p>

    So now that you know that the rest of the world loves Obama, how about you? I raised that question last Thursday night on my radio talk show at Washington, DC’s 630 WMAL, albeit rather facetiously. Despite what the forces at CBS, ABC, NBC, CNN, MSNBC, Rueters, The New York Times, and “CNN International” may want me to believe, I don’t assume that “the world loves Obama,” anymore than I assume that “the world hates Bush.” But now that the week of cathartic revelry is behind us and the excitement has subsided a little bit, it’s time for some reflection....

    Barack Obama has weighed-in on the issue of reinstating the so-called “Fairness Doctrine.” After being repeatedly questioned about the candidate’s position, campaign Press Secretary Michael Ortiz stated in an email message that “Senator Obama does not support re-imposing the Fairness Doctrine on broadcasters.” This position could be yet another one of those “deeply-held convictions” that Obama believes in unequivocally, similar to his long-held position on campaign finance reform. In January of 2007, Obama stated in a CNN interview with Larry King that the public-financing system “works.” Later that year, Mr. Obama challenged Republican presidential candidates to join him in limiting...

    Barack Obama succumbed to Muslim demands. It started at a campaign event that Obama held last Monday, at Detroit’s Joe Louis Arena. There have been very few news reports about this matter, but they all seem to point to a consistent turn of events. Before the event kicked-off, a campaign staffer (who apparently was female and black, should anybody care) approached two young men in the crowd and asked if they’d like to sit up on the platform, and appear behind Obama while he was speaking from the podium. As the two guys accepted the invitation, one of them asked...

    Citadel Cuts MAL's Core & More - 2/29 - DCRTV gets confirmation: Longtime DC radio talker Chris Core has been let go from Citadel talker WMAL, which has promptly erased him from its website, including its program schedule (right). We're told that it was "not personal," just "part of a massive cutback country-wide by Citadel." Core has worked at WMAL more than two decades, doing the Bill "Trumbull And Core" afternoon show in the 1980s. And there are rumblings of more cuts at Citadel's three DC stations - WMAL, WRQX, and WJZW - including the latter's entire airstaff (see...

    All of you might recall that last year (on May 25, 2007) Chris Plante received the most controversial call of the year from a listener named Ricardo from Sterling, Va. regarding the topic of illegal immigration.

You got free elections, Rectum!” (referring to a Nicaraguan caller, Ricardo from Sterling, Va., who called the United States “a stupid country”) - 5/25/07 - Topic: Illegal Immigration. “We should’ve left you to the Commies...

    From DCRTV: Sunday Afternoon Fireworks On WMAL - 2/17 - A DCRTVer tells us about "a nasty, dragged out, and loud blowout" between WMAL's Jerry Klein (on the political left) and Chris Plante (on the political right) during their program, "The Chris Plante And Jerry Klein Show," on Sunday afternoon.

They disproportionately favor upper-income voters who, who, don't really need a president but feel like...
