MSNBC Chief Should Suspend Self, Not Scarborough, Olbermann

By |

Keith, I know you can’t do this so let me do it for you: Your award for “Worst Person in the World” should go to your boss, MSNBC President Phil Griffin. He has now suspended you and your colleague Joe Scarborough--both of you well-known for your biased opinions from the left and the right. Er,

Pelosi's Democrats Will Miss Rahm Emanuel

By |

The most important seat the Democrats lost this year wasn’t monitored during last week’s election. In fact, it was on the other side of Pennsylvania Avenue. When Rahm Emanuel decided to leave Washington for Chicago, the Democratic Party lost one of its most effective voices of sanity and strategic ...

2010 Elections Show Partisanship Works

By |

There’s a weird vibe in this East Coast town as a political hurricane approaches today. Nervous Democrats are boarding up storefronts and duct-taping windows. Drunken Republicans are hosting stormwatch parties and running with surfboards headlong into the wind. Everybody is predicting massive ...

The Liberals' Spending Delusions and the 2010 Elections

By |

The churn building toward Election Day is achieving a kind of cannibalistic feeding frenzy as liberal pundits, Democratic strategists, and MoveOn activists try to spin the public’s coming rejection of the Obama agenda. It’s not that the White House and Democratic Congress tried to cram left-wing ...

NPR Shouldn't Have Fired Juan Williams, But Its CEO Instead

By |

I’m going to go out on a limb here, and I hope U.S. News will not give me the boot for expressing a clear opinion, but I think Vivian Schiller should be fired. You remember her. She’s the CEO of NPR, the one who suggested very publicly--to a room full of journalists and television cameras--that ...

Healthcare Arrogance Killing Democrats in 2010 Elections

By |

It is rare that you can pinpoint an exact date as to when a politician threw her career away, but Sen. Blanche Lincoln, a Democratic incumbent from Arkansas, did just that with an op-ed in the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette on July 8, 2009. In it, she endorsed the so-called “public option,” a gateway to ...

Jerry Brown, Meg Whitman, 'Whore,' and NOW's Hypocrisy

By |

Evidently, all it takes to get the endorsement of the National Organization for Women (NOW) is to call women whores. Used to be that you’d at least have to sexually harass them. If only Stanley Kowalski had run for governor in Louisiana--how Terry O’Neill would have swooned.

O’Neill, the president ...

Obama's Healthcare Reform Is Actually Worse Than We Feared

By |

Remember Nancy Pelosi’s Let Them Eat Cake moment on healthcare reform? The one where she dismissed as ridiculous the idea that the public should know what was in the bill before it was passed into law?

[See where Pelosi gets her campaign money.]

To a befuddled audience seeking a little more ...
