When Conservatives Get Angry, We Say Mean Things. When Liberals Get Angry…

The Rage That’s Not On Your Front PageThe liberal media frets over conservative anger, but are blind to a torrent of liberal hate. By Michelle Malkin When a few unruly McCain-Palin supporters show their anger at campaign rallies, it’s national news. It’s an epidemic of “Weimar-like rage” and “violent escalation of rhetoric,” according to New… Continue reading »

The Company You Keep, Mr. Obama…

For your perusal and discussion: Jive Turkey Rides AgainBy the Editors If we learned anything from the mess in Florida in 2000, it’s this: When elections don’t end on Election Day, things get ugly quickly. That is why today, and not the day after Election Day, is the day for Americans of all political stripes… Continue reading »

Presidential Debate II

Alright, so I think the consensus is that last night was 90 minutes we’ll never get back again. McCain let Obama get away with blaming Republicans for the current financial crisis, never making the case that Democrats are the ones who have presided over this process of opening up mortgages to people who have a… Continue reading »

Vice Presidential Debates

Today I wanted to talk about the comparative treatment of Joe Biden and Sarah Palin in the media. I wanted to make the case that Gwen Ifill has a clear ethical conflict because she stands to profit from the victory of Barack Obama.

VDH on Sarah P. via NRO

Victor Davis Hanson: Journalists continue to ask, “What was John McCain thinking in selecting the gaffe-prone Gov. Sarah Palin?”In what has now become a disturbing pattern, the Alaska governor seems either unable or unwilling to avoid embarrassing statements that are often as untrue as they are outrageous. Recently, for example, in an exclusive interview with… Continue reading »

Debates Tonight

Rather than provide running commentary as I have done in the past, I will respond to the debates afterward with a general impression.

Final Analysis of Gibson-Palin Interview, Part II

This is the second part of my analysis on the Gibson-Palin interview.  In the first part, I focused on what I felt were the substantive issues regarding Palin’s selection and her qualifications to be Vice-President.  I attempted to fairly gauge those areas in which she needs improvement while also mentioning areas in which she showed… Continue reading »

Final Analysis of Gibson-Palin Interview, Part I

Essentially, the Palin interview needs to be evaluated on two fronts.  First, and most important, is Palin’s performance as an untried national candidate.  The ABC piece was not a first impression, but a substantive discussion after the first impression…an impression which, I don’t think anyone can argue, was pretty forceful.  The second and only slightly… Continue reading »

Obama Supporters Should Read This Too

There is a blogger out there named Charles Martin.  He has done us all a favor and put together a comprehensive list of all the Sarah Palin rumors.  Additionally…their debunking.  Some of the best: 3. Yes, she did push for and approve the Wasilla Sports Center. Yes, it did cost a lot of money. (People… Continue reading »

More Sarah Palin Defense…Sadly Still Necessary!

Sarah Palin was accused of many things over the week.  One of the less obscene was the notion that she, a prolifer openly opposed to abortion, had hypocritically cut funding for pregnant teens.  As it turns out, that was true!  Sort of.  As always, a partial truth is more damaging than a total lie.  For… Continue reading »
