Sorry, no kiss goodbye to any Clinton vs. Palin fantasy scenario i.e. strong feminist woman vs. pseudo-feminist quitter in 2012 or 2016.
Former pro wrestler, actor, governor of Minnesota, and current television host Jesse Ventura held nothing back in an interview with Fancast when asked about Sarah Palin and the Tea Party. Ventura said he would never support the Tea Party because of Palin, and added, "She saw greener pastures, said, Screw the people of Alaska, and went on to collect."
The Pastor of the church in Florida that is planning to burn the Quran has a sleazy past in Germany involving both allegations of financial wrong-doing and being convicted for using a false PhD. This is the man the far Right are defending. This is their base, their audience, and the sort of people who are clearly easily seduced by the regular shots of GOP inspired crazy into doing horrific things.
Glenn Beck delivered a powerful symbol to America today during his Restoring Honor rally, but it had nothing to do with his words or the crowd. If you looked closely at Beck during his "I Killed a Dream" speech, you could see that he was wearing a bulletproof vest. Beck was afraid of his own fans. Check out the pics for yourself.
Glenn Beck is a Mormon in evangelical clothing who has co-opted the Christian narrative for his own purposes. He is preaching what he obviously does not, and cannot believe given his Mormonism. Are mainstream Christians aware of this disconnect between Beck and his message? This has been noticed by some on the Religious Right. Some, but not enough.
Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer is using drug related border violence to justify a draconian and perhaps unconstitutional law, but the two have nothing to do with one another. In fact, in the video the reporter says, "he (Officer Pinal) was tracking the five suspects as they transported marijuana and other drugs..." So if Brewer wanted to deal with this issue, she should have written a law dealing with drug trafficking and undocumented fire arms, not people who "look undocumented". Hey, I'm just assuming she'd want to narrow the field down to the dangerous folks if her argument is the threat of violence.
On his radio show today, Glenn Beck finally seems to have gone off the cliff as he not only claimed that God has given him a plan, but also he is carrying out God's will and anger. Beck told his listeners that they it is God's will that they get behind him and follow him. He said, "When we were starting the TV show there are things that I did that I wouldn't do now because I had to be more of an entertainer."
As Sarah Palin basks in both the cash of and the love from the Tea Party, a new Washington Post poll reveals that her political popularity among the nation as a whole has never been lower. Conservative Republicans give her a 71% approval rating and tea partiers put her at 60%, but the nation as a whole gives her only a 37% approval rating, and a 55% disapproval rating.
For years Republicans have been trying to get former president Ronald Reagan's face on United States currency. The latest effort is being spearheaded by Rep. Patrick McHenry (R-NC), who has proposed legislation that would replace Grant with Reagan on the $50 bill, but here are five reasons why Ronald Reagan should never be on the fifty or any other United States currency.
The Glenn Beck advertiser boycott has officially reached the mainstream as the AP ran a story today about the advertiser backlash that Fox News and Glenn Beck are facing after he called President Obama a racist. Clorox became the latest big name to drop Beck.
In his column for D Magazine CBS Golf Analyst David Feherty made the outrageous claim that the troops all love George W. Bush to the point where if a solider had two bullets and was in an elevator with Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and Bin Laden, the soldier would shoot Pelosi twice.
After a strong debut, MSNBC's The Ed Show struggled in the ratings, but something interesting began to happen last week. Ed Schultz has been picking up viewers. His show has been tweaked, and he still isn't even close to Fox News, but The Ed Show is starting to grow.
The early ratings are in for Ed Schultz's The Ed Show on MSNBC, and they have provided a boost to MSNBC's 6 pm (ET) hour. It is too soon to tell if his show will be a hit or a miss, and the show definitely could use some tweaking, but Schultz is definitely off to a good start.
Palin is being sued for violating the law by failing to issue the 2007 Juneteenth Proclamation. While the lawsuit is frivolous, it does raise questions about Palin's views on race, and how they may clash with RNC chairman Michael Steele's plans to expand the GOP base.
