But I owe Peg and Sicilians never forget:

Here is Peg’s post on the subject:

Still, I think it very sad when people have an attitude like Maha seems to have about the world. As much as I disagree with some of the positions liberals take, I just cannot reason from that that millions of my fellow Americans are awful, stupid people. They are not. I may think that some are naive, or haven’t been exposed to some of the experiences that conservatives and/or libertarians have, etc., etc. But terrible people? Nope. And further – possible that I am wrong about some of my reasoning and my opinions? Sure! But if the discussion stops, how will anyone ever know?

Shades of the RedNeck stuff. I confess when it comes to Peg I’ve VERY Biased and left this comment:

Well you know us evil conservatives, we turn up in the most unlikely places to spread our cause to destroy the world, strangle puppies and generally wreak havoc.

Banning Peg, that’s Charles Johnson territory, but hey your blog, your rules.

but there are two sides to every story so in fairness to Mahablog, here is the entire thread. Read it and make up your own mind.

(Mind you the Glenn Beck joke is pretty good.)

Newly re-elected city counselor-at-large Rosemary Reynolds (who won the seat held by Annie DiMartino) attended a meeting of Mass Right to Life in Fitchburg and informed them that Planned Parenthood will NOT be attending the Tuesday city counsel meeting on the 2nd.

Supposedly this is due to a key official of PP not being able to make it.

I wouldn’t put it past them to try to “deke” people in order to keep the turnout down so I think I’ll show up anyway.

The group will also hold a protest on main street tomorrow. I’m sure that will re-assure the remaining merchants on main street that PP won’t hurt business.

One side thought. The one Mosque in Fitchburg is located on main street. As Islam generally opposes abortion I wonder if the local Muslim community will be joining this protest?

Oh fyi the “re-elected” refers to her previous time on the city counsel.

…then NOW has some trouble:

Women’s Rights groups, like NOW, commendably call out advertisers and networks for airing sexist and demeaning portrayals of women that lead to young women’s diminished self-esteem and acceptance of roles as mere sexed-up objects.

What a ridiculous situation they’re getting themselves into now with their protest of CBS airing a pro-life ad during the upcoming Super Bowl game. The ad will feature Heisman trophy winner Tim Tebow and his mom, and they’ll speak to the sanctity of life and the beautiful potential within every innocent child as Mrs. Tebow acknowledges her choice to give Tim life, despite less than ideal circumstances. Messages like this empower women! This speaks to the strength and commitment and nurturing spirit within women. The message says everything positive and nothing negative about the power of women – and life. Evidently, some women’s rights groups like NOW do not like that message.

On Morning Joe today, Barnicle, Scarborough and Mika all talked about the standard superbowl ad whose message is: “Drink our beer/use our product and you will get laid!” and asked why they don’t just buy their own.

Gateway is on it, but then again he always is.

O’Keefe not withstanding, A million members of the left must be going Kryten today.

Fox is the most trusted television news network in the country, according to a new poll out Tuesday.

A Public Policy Polling nationwide survey of 1,151 registered voters Jan. 18-19 found that 49 percent of Americans trusted Fox News, 10 percentage points more than any other network.

Thirty-seven percent said they didn’t trust Fox, also the lowest level of distrust that any of the networks recorded.

There is some serious gloating going on

Meanwhile on the left: disbelief and resignation.

I used to get upset about this sort of thing, but now? Pft. Whatever.

Couple this with a new influx of corporate cash into political advertising and… well hey, democracy was nice while it lasted.


Just remember this would not have been possible without the long term cooperation of the MSM. Acorn videos, Van Jones, Tea Parties, “Racism”, Ken Gladney, Anita Dunn, Kevin Jennings, ¿Quien sabe? and Sarah Palin’s “Acknowledged Grandchild”, all ignored, misrepresented, delayed or otherwise not covered by the MSM…

…and that’s just in the last year!

The difference, how many days did it that the MSM to cover O’Keefe and Acorn, days, even weeks.

How many days did it take Fox to cover the story? On the net same day. On TV? I saw it this morning.

That’s it in a nutshell!

Oh and Fox, don’t get cocky, if you fall into the MSM’s habits you will suffer the same fate and deserve it.

..back around 2005 when Rush was suggesting it?

If that option had been used in 2004-2006, obamacare would be the law of the land right now.

One might argue that judicial nominations are different than other bills, it not a bad argument but it wouldn’t carry the day. The democrats would have done this and the media would have backed it. The problem with playing with rules when you are in the majority is that when you are in the minority they are used against you.

Sometimes the greatest gift you can get is not having getting what you want.

Update: I’m actually shocked that they democrats haven’t managed to pass something, glad but shocked. If they had even the slightest bit of sense I think they would have been much more successfully in a legislative sense.

Has he even been sworn in yet?

A Newsmax/Zogby poll shows the Massachusetts Republican within striking range of Obama in a hypothetical presidential matchup.

The poll shows the pair statistically deadlocked if the presidential election were held today.

And of course we have already established that Zobgy is less accurate than overweight Sicilians in Fedoras. (Hey maybe what he needs is to hire an $800 a week Sicilian in a fedora? Tucker hasn’t called and time is running out.) Anyone who even THINKS of him as presidential material in 2012 deserves a wedgie!

And 2016 is too early as well.

He said:

A Democratic Thief is as bad as a republican one.

One doesn’t want to pre-judge a case but to say the least it doesn’t look good. There is no question that if they were trying to bug a Senator’s office that would be a federal offense.

One should not get the idea that you can violate law with impunity. Of course it’s not the organized corruption of ACORN. We seem to be dealing with a bunch of 20 somethings who are too full of themselves. Unlike the ACORN films this is one story involving Mr. O’Keefe that will not be ignored by the MSM.

As Ann Althouse’s commentator says O’Keefe deserves the gratitude of the nation for his Acorn expose, but lets be frank, if this had been a democrat breaking in to a republican’s office we would be all over him. A reasonable person would conclude that this stinks and stinks badly.

Of course a reasonable person given the early evidence would have concluded a certain gentleman was murdered in Kentucky so if people want to withhold judgment that’s up to them. For me I gotta call ’em as I seem em and from what I’m currently seeing O’Keefe joins John Edwards in the as a winner of the “Wheel of Fish” award.

If subsequent facts prove me wrong then I’ll retract it.

Update: Breitbart comes out swinging

Update 2 : I think the egg is on my face in 35 days or so of this story O’Keefe has been looking better and better and the MSM has looked like a bunch of fools. Consider the Wheel of Fish award retracted.
