Palin Joins Fox News As a Contributor


The always reliably leftist New York Times reports that former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin signed a multi-year contract with Fox News today. She will appear on the network’s programming on a regular basis.
Although many expected Palin to get her own show on Fox News when she resigned as governor of Alaska last year, the report [...]

If you’re a governor with presidential aspirations, you should never, under any circumstances, pardon a convict or reduce a sentence. That’s the lesson everyone seems to have drawn from the dreadful case of Maurice Clemmons, an Arkansas native who murdered four Lakewood, Wash., police officers over Thanksgiving weekend — nine years after Mike Huckabee, then […]

Romney Slams Huckabee Over Clemencies


Appearing on CNNs “Larry King Live,” former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney lashed out at former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee for granting clemency to Maurice Clemmons. Clemmons was found guilty of armed robbery and other violence crimes. Although prosecutors and Clemmons’ victims urged Huckabee not to pardon him, the governor did so nonetheless: a major and [...]

What year is it again? Media Matters’ selective outrage over… Willie Horton?


She’s so fi-ine, there’s no telling where the money went
She’s so fi-ine, there’s no other way to go-oo…
Sorry. Having an ’80s flashback there, thanks to the George Soros Steno Pool, otherwise known as Media Matters.
It’s a shame, really. Just yesterday, Media Matters and I had achieved a rapprochement of sorts, founded upon our [...]

Why Are Conservatives So Quick To Eat Their Own?


I must admit that this entire controversy (conservative feeding frenzy?) surrounding Governor Mike Huckabee’s commutation of Maurice Clemmons’ sentence back in 2000 makes me a bit queasy.  Am I the only one that thinks the vitriol and condemnation of Huckabee over this is way over-the-top?  Let’s take a step back from the beat-down for just [...]

Tiger Woods, O.J. Simpson & Mike Huckabee


I’ve been thinking: If I were Tiger Woods how secure would I feel climbing under the same covers again with this woman? I’m referring of course to the wife who, from the evidence available, tried to murder Tiger with a golf club and pretty near succeeded. A punch, a scratch — that’s one thing. Earned [...]

The Spin Stops Where, Exactly? O’Reilly Pitches Soft Balls to Huckabee


On Monday’s O’Reilly Factor, Mike Huckabee made his first television appearance since serial felon Maurice Clemmons (allegedly) murdered four police officers on Sunday morning. Since the murders, the media have lambasted Fox News analyst and former Arkansas governor Huckabee for having commuted Clemmons’ life sentence back in 2000. I had been curious as [...]

History Repeats Itself: Huckabee Becomes Dukakis


Call it Willie Horton 2.0.   After winning the Democratic Party’s nomination in 1988, then-Massachusetts Gov. Michael Dukakis’s presidential campaign was destroyed by Republican attacks on his role in the release of Willie Horton on a weekend furlough. Horton surprised and shocked leftists everywhere when he did not return to jail, and later raped a woman and [...]
