In the world of climate change legislation, everyone seems to be waiting for somebody else to act first. Thus, few are willing to lead; the rest are hesitant to follow. The United States, with a unique opportunity to lead the drive to save the planet, has chosen neither to lead nor to follow.
This is What an Evening of Hope Looks Like for Palin Fans: Empty Seats, Short Speech. The story here is that there was no audience, which might mean that there’s hope for America after all. Bristol might draw more people in Tennessee than Palin drew in Jacksonville. This is the GOP’s great white hope.
There’s a real dilemma going on in Sarah Land these days! Sarah fans, who’ve already taken an oath not to believe anything the Lame Stream Media writes about their hero, are now adding Fox News to that list. In a nod to that other great paranoiac, Nixon, apparently the only Word that can be trusted is Sarah’s. “The Gov’s” (as they affectionately call her per her contract) books, her Facebok page, and her tweets will shape the world of her cult from now on, thank you very much!
Sarah Palin was on Fox Business this morning where she did not hesitate to start a feud with former Tea Party golden boy, now pariah Sen. Scott Brown (R-MA) for daring to vote with Democrats on some issues. Palin claimed that Brown was not a hardcore constitutional conservative and that Massachusetts would, “put up with Scott Brown and the antics there.”
The dysfunctional on air talent dynamic at MSNBC reared its ugly head as Ed Schultz, threatened to, “torch this [bleep]ing place,” after being ignored for the network’s Election Night promos. It seems the Ed is feeling little unloved and a bit jealous of Olbermann and Maddow.
From Elizabeth Hasslebeck coming out to “admit” she’s always been for gay marriage to Ken Mehlman, senior Republican party figure revealing he’s gay—the signals are all there; the Republicans are comin’ a callin’ for the gay vote. If that wasn’t enough, the muted GOP reaction to a judge affirming gay marriage rights in California gave it all away.
After Michele Bachmann’s original claim that there are enemies of America in the Congress was echoed by Nevada Senate candidate Sharron Angle it is become obvious that the real enemy of America are extremist candidates like Angle who can’t seem to keep their stories straight.
If you can believe it, Fox News has moved on to even more inflammatory rhetoric on the Park 51 project. Tonight on The O’Reilly Factor, Dick Morris called the community center would be a, “center for terrorism” if it was built.
“Since then, the American-led counteroffensive has done much to turn back the Islamist tide.” Carafano revealed that the Heritage Foundation believes the Afghan war is a war on Islam; not a war on terror.
A fascinating report on the Tea Party was released today by Democracy Corps. Their data collected from months of polling debunked the myth of the Tea Party as populist outrage, but also revealed that Sarah Palin is regarded by the members as hero of the movement, but they have doubts about her intelligence and future.
No longer content with peeing on the legacy of Martin Luther King, Glenn Beck hyped his 8-28 rally by warping the words of Lincoln into a warning into a plea for attendance on Saturday. Beck warned that non attendance will mean that, “God will wash this nation in blood.”
It seems Joe Miller rose up with his Mama Grizzly and stole a lead over incumbent Republican Senator Lisa Murkowski! The pundits will be wild with glee for another reason to keep Sister Sarah in their sights this morning. That woman is gold. The Democrats will be happy, because after all, Sarah is their biggest fund-raiser and who is easier to run against than a fringy Tea Partier? But you? You will not be happy.
We should not expect much out of FOX when it comes to reporting the news. Sure, it can be argued that there is no news that is undistorted by spin, but there is spin and there is propaganda, and there is outright fiction. If you are going to step before a camera and say something, it should at least be made clear to the watcher if what you’re saying is fact or fiction. Peter J. Johnson, Jr., graduate of Columbia College and Columbia University’s School of Law and has served them as a legal propagandist since 1997.
The American political system assumes that all parties will behave responsibly and continue to try to govern the nation even through disagreement. For one party to completely withdraw from the process and insist on their status as “a government in exile” is something the Founders never foresaw.
A member of the Republican National Committee, Kim Lehman, has publicly accused the President of being a Muslim and her Party has remained mum, failing to correct her or condemn her behavior. Ms Lehman said she was referencing a speech Obama gave in Egypt in 2009. The transcript of the speech does not support Ms Lehman’s accusation.
On The Daily Show, Jon Stewart came with a solution for those who are concerned about the funding for the “Ground Zero Mosque,” being that the project is being funded by a Fox News co-owner, he suggested that people stop watching Fox News, “My point is this if we want to cut off funding to the terror mosque. We must together as a nation, stop watching Fox.”
“The most radical President ever to occupy the Oval Office.” That’s the sound of an anti-government movement of hate funded by billionaires being sold to “average Americans”. Sort of a Tea Party madrassa, if you will. The Tea Party’s funders are serving up their manufactured narratives and much of the public is eating it up.
Just when you think Fox News may have found one issue that the network can agree with President Obama on, in this case the need for more regulation and food inspections to prevent things like the current national egg recall due to salmonella infection, along comes Neil Cavuto and guest Charles Payne to explain to us why big business should be allowed to poison our food.
Hey, it’s a “free” country and Todd can live to secede if he wants! What matters is that he’s the kinda guy I want to have a beer with. He’s a middle class fisherman who doubles as Mr Mom. Sure, he puled a Rove and refused to comply with a subpoena, but what did you expect him to do, lie under oath? And since nothing says Pro-life Christian like a tacky attempt to intimidate a citizen, here’s Palin’s America — oh, and while you’re watching it just imagine if Todd were black, the outrage we’d be hearing:
Well, let me fill you in, lest you be caught unawares at the water cooler by a colleague who begins to spew Fox Talking Points. The RNC had a blog post about President Obama taking “another” vacation. Another brilliantly relevant and accurate political criticism of the President naturally ensued. Glaring as it was in hypocrisy, Republicans took a shine to it. They figure between the racial division they’re drumming up on one hand, this little nod to the lazy Black man on the other will really finish Obama off and get them the House back this fall!
