Palin Nails It: the American Apologists Have Never Met a Bill They Have Read


Sarah Palin sometimes has impeccable timing.  Today she posted on Facebook that:
the American Apology Tour continues.
That is both true and unfortunate of course and you can read her post in it’s entirety here.
But the interestingly ironic aspect is that Ms. Palin’s frustration with the O Team ignorance is nicely juxtaposed with another progressive posted jaw [...]

Sarah Palin Surprise Support of Fiorina: No Wimps Allowed!


It was but seventy seven years ago that Wimpy murmured to Popeye the Sailor man: “I will gladly pay you Tuesday for a hamburger today”.   Particularly apt this afternoon because Californians are wondering if today is Carly Fiorina’s “Tuesday.”
Following Fiorina’s support during the White House bid, Sarah Palin has now officially endorsed Ms. Fiorina’s [...]

The Wild West is Back on Twitter: Sharpton & Hill Ride to our “Rescue”


The state of Arizona caught a “lucky” break lately, in the form of BP’s inability to cap their oil leak and the FBI’s “car 54 where are you?” approach to apprehending Faisal Shahzad of Times Square-attempted-SUV-bombing fame.   This is obviously a facetious statement, as the oil spill and NY terrorism attempts are both horrible stories.
But [...]

Sarah Palin Email Hacker Convicted – Lamestream Media Doesn’t Stop the Presses


The jury returned a ” guilty” verdict against a Tennessee politico’s spawn on two of the four hacking related charges.  David Kernall was accused of hacking into her email during the campaign and then releasing info, documents and pictures to the media.
From Sarah Palin’s facebook page this afternoon:
“My family and I are thankful that the [...]

National “Insulting to Women” Day … Thanks But No Thanks


Today is National Administrative Professional’s Day.  There is much that bothers me about this.  This “holiday” started in 1952 as Secretary’s Day, and was designed to recognize the work of secretaries, administrative assistants, receptionists, and other administrative support professionals.
This has to be the most misguided and sexist holiday ever.  Regardless of the ridiculous fact [...]

Twitter Today: ‘Fair Pay’ Tough to Swallow Unless You Are Andy Stern


Under the best of circumstances it’s not easy to swallow the “guidance” from the leadership at the SEIU.  This is not the best of  circumstances.
Now the thugs, goons and sledgehammer swingers who provide the muscle for Service Employees International Union head Andy Stern have proven themselves even more tone deaf  than usual.
I was thinking earlier [...]

Alterman on “Climate Change”: You are Too Stupid to Understand


After his years of association with MSNBC, following tenure at Rolling Stone & Mother Jones, it should come as no surprise that Eric Alterman would tweet and ostensibly believe this:
stupid people are defining what people know about global warming http://www.americanprogress.org/issues/2010/04/ta040810.html
and thank God that we have professional progressives like Alterman and his pals at Media Matters [...]

Fox News Delivers the Progressive Slapdown


When I was a newly-minted journalist we called Ted Turner’s Cable News Network the Chicken Noodle Network. Today that poultry- based moniker seems poised to make a return.  The NY Times reports this morning:
CNN continued what has become a precipitous decline in ratings for its prime-time programs in the first quarter of 2010, [...]

Twitter Today – Mickey Kaus’ Candidacy and Ezra Klein’s Narcissism


In the fuzzy fantasy world of the progressives – every issue, statement, article is a very personal  affront.  How nice to live in a land where everything is about “me”!
The  NYT interviewed long time Slate blogger Mickey Kaus this morning about his quasi-candidacy in California’s  Democratic Senate primary.  I will leave the legitimacy of Kaus’ [...]

The TGIF toothy-grinned tweet: Not So Fast PBS


There are some things that I opt not to write about, especially if I don’t feel well-schooled enough on the subject matter to offer intelligent, insightful comment.
For lefties Messers Eric Boehlert and Karl Frisch at Media Matters that doesn’t seem to be much of an issue today.  Frisch wrote and Boehlert retweeted:
What say you Fox [...]
