Two Boston Shoutouts. The Police and the Young ladies on the Train

I'll have a lot to say about events in Boston tomorrow with photos, video and several interviews to round it out. But before I upload those videos and do anything else let me give one thank-you and two shout outs. First thank all those who consented to interviews (either recorded or not) and gave me … Continue reading Two Boston Shoutouts. The Police and the Young ladies on the Train

The #unexpectedly Chronicles: Weigel Nails it

One of the advantages of being a liberal who covers conservatives (and actually mixes with them) is perspective and at the Washington Post Dave Weigel brightly illustrates the difference between being owned by a campaign and not. (emphasis mine) In outrage mode, it was easy to ignore something Clinton spokesman Jake Sullivan said in his … Continue reading The #unexpectedly Chronicles: Weigel Nails it

A Tip of the Fedora to an Honorable Leftist

I've taken a lot of time to deliver some well deserved hits on the various Michael Brown Protesters. However I'd like to draw your attention to a man I disagree who deserves to be mentioned. Meet the Reverend Jarrett Maupin I have never met the reverend but by that description odds are we have little … Continue reading A Tip of the Fedora to an Honorable Leftist

The Reclusive Leftist weighs in

One of days I must have the Reclusive Leftist on my show on the subject of Sarah Palin and the left. We disagree on almost everything else but she has been willing from day one to call out her fellow leftists on Palin Derangement syndrome. I finally had a chance to take a peek at … Continue reading The Reclusive Leftist weighs in

Not all on the left were silent!

Glenn linked to one other interesting piece today from one of the few people on the far lets on my blogroll, the Reclusive Leftist who said this: Nobody has ever apologized to me. Not that it would make a difference, but still. Not one of those people who accused me of being a racist and … Continue reading Not all on the left were silent!

Morning Joe on the car attack

They report his background, (not specifically mentioning his support to park 51) but since they can't directly attach him to opposition to the mosque they still play the Gingrich card. You can see them trying to hold back, unable to make the direct connection so it is all a question of "climate". I would think … Continue reading Morning Joe on the car attack

I’ve been wanting to stay away from the Mosque story a bit

but Chris Hitchens has only so many columns left in him so they should be promoted while there is still time: Emboldened by the crass nature of the opposition to the center, its defenders have started to talk as if it represented no problem at all and as if the question were solely one of … Continue reading I’ve been wanting to stay away from the Mosque story a bit

I give Talking Points Memo credit

Their interview/article on Pam Geller was tough but fair. I think it is an excellent example of how to do a "hostile" interview, dealing with someone you disagree with fundamentally. I hit the left side of the 'sphere a bit so when they do it right they deserve a pat. Good show. Memeorandum thread here. … Continue reading I give Talking Points Memo credit

I never thought I’d say this

But Melissa Harris Lacewell of the Nation is making some excellent points on Morning Joe. She hits Breitbart, the administration and the NAACP but notes that it was the advocacy of the white farmers who were helped that turned this story around. I also didn't know Schrrot's families history in the civil rights movement, Barnicle … Continue reading I never thought I’d say this

I first heard the alligatinons of Fraud in the primaries in Texas…

...at the reclusive leftist back in 2008 when she posted each part of the film from youtube and wrote the following: The pattern is the same, from Washington to Texas, from Iowa to Nevada, from Maine to Minnesota: Obama workers arrive early at each caucus place and take control of the premises and the process. … Continue reading I first heard the alligatinons of Fraud in the primaries in Texas…

Yet another side effect of Obamacare

In my Liz Carter article, I mentioned the incredible tale of the NAACP distrusting the Main Stream Media. FireDogLake found themselves on the opposite side of the MSM during the great Obamacare debate and found themselves questioning the media as well. The signicifance? Once you start questioning the media you stop taking certain things on … Continue reading Yet another side effect of Obamacare

Around the blogroll, I totally missed the rallies edition…

So today's around the blogroll will concentrate on blogs that covered the rallies. Due to my visit to the 10th annual Worcester Diocese Catholic's Men's Conference I completed missed and heard not a thing about the rallies today so instead of the regular rotation of the blogroll feature we will focus on sites that covered … Continue reading Around the blogroll, I totally missed the rallies edition…

I give Mika full marks first thing in the morning…

When covering the Iraqi elections she acknowledged the "cropped" cover from Newsweek. There are times when Mika drives me crazy (and I'm not talking in the "handsome woman sense") but I've got to say when she is wrong she is usually wrong honest and she tries harder to be fair than any liberal I've seen … Continue reading I give Mika full marks first thing in the morning…

I didn’t see Rachel Maddow yesterday

I wish I had, I would have enjoyed getting a 1 min interview with her if she consented, but I have to give her high marks for #1. Showing up in person to see for herself and #2. Having fun and joking around with the Newsbusters guys. As long as people who disagree can do … Continue reading I didn’t see Rachel Maddow yesterday

I third the motion

Pat Condell is a fellow who doesn't believe in any God and has harsh words for religion across the board. He is also a champion for free speech. His latest on the Wilders trial is a must watch. As you can guess I disagree with him on religion but I respect him very much for … Continue reading I third the motion
