Chis Matthews: TR More Popular than Abe?


The weekend Chris Matthews show is generally made up of echo-chamber panels who– no matter what the polling– assure each other enthusiastically that Barack Obama is a political genius besides being our Dear Leader.
Today, after everyone had loudly proclaimed that the Obama proposed takover of the financial system was a political home run, not to [...]

Glorious Leader Gap: President Barack Obama – Not So Bright for a Harvard Law Grad


As a student of charismatic leadership, my antenna lit up when I saw all the chatter during the 2008 Presidential campaign regarding Barack Obama’s brilliance and genius.  Since I’ve gotten to know some real geniuses, I think I’m in a good position to access his intellectual capacity. Based on my experience, [...]

Ryan Sorba is an Arrogant Tool


For those of you that don’t know, Ryan Sorba is the pompous genius who decided to wreck his big debut at CPAC by getting himself booed off stage. Watch the video below:

What a likeable guy.

Joe Klein Compares Obama to a Mixed Breed Dog… Crickets Chirp


If it’s true that cockroaches can survive a nuclear blast, I guess crickets can live through record setting blizzards.
Because that chirping sound you hear is coming from the general direction of Media Matters headquarters, in Washington, DC.

On Sunday, Time magazine’s Joe Klein wrote:
Those who celebrate Sarah Palin’s lack of knowledge as a form of “authenticity” [...]

Repealing Don’t Ask Don’t Tell: Smart Politics, But What About Implementation?


With tanking poll numbers, his key policy initiative in shambles, and once impenetrable Democratic seats feeling the strange, terrifying prospect of competition, there seems to be a tragic-yet-inescapable truth about our super-cool, genius president who was once “sort of God”:
Frankly, it kind of sucks to be Barack Obama right about now.
The President isn’t out of [...]

Another Virtuoso Lunch Break


Classical music isn’t the only music that the older, more mature and more traditional folks enjoy, and as long as the kids keep promoting their rock & roll bands, I’ll continue to offer alternatives for the rest of us.

Genius Envy: Bill O’Reilly and Dennis Miller “Barely Qualify as Men”


I have long held MSNBC host Ed Schultz’s erratic behavior stems from his political and professional status: he envies those whose careers surpass his. As David Swindle noted in the roll-out of this series, “Ben’s posts on Schultz are collected and all future articles will be collected here under the series name ‘Genius Envy,’ a [...]

Genius Envy: Would-Be Lieberman Assailant Asks, “Where’s the Hate Speech on Joe Lieberman?”


Three full days after he wondered why no one had punched Joe Lieberman (“Traitor Joe,” as he calls him), Ed Schultz of MSNBC’s The Ed Show insisted no one on the Left had ever defamed the distinguished senator from Connecticut. Last night, Schultz asked former Republican Congressman Ernest Istook about Democratic infighting over the health [...]

The Dastardly Left Attacks Lieberman’s Wife


As reported last night on “The O’Reilly Factor”, some Leftists are  so angry at Senator Joe Lieberman for blocking the public health insurance option that they are taking it out on his wife,  Hadassah Lieberman.  They are trying to get her fired from her position as “Global Ambassador” for Susan G.

Expect a Very Progressive Economic Future


As usual, Fox News host Glenn Beck is proving himself to be one of the few commentators on cable news willing to actually report what happens in Washington, D.C. On his show last Friday, Beck explained whom President Barack Obama relies on to shape his economic policy and what this means. His (and my) conclusion: be [...]
