(Character) Assassination

The source of the Left's outrage. The old definition of a Puritan is a person who is constantly worried that somewhere, someone is having a good time. The new definition of a “Progressive” should be a person who worries that somewhere, someone is trying to kill terrorists. Rachel Maddow fit the bill last night on MSNBC. Maddow mentioned a new wrinkle in the covert CIA concept that … [Read more...]

Chris Matthews’ Anti-Gay Slur

"Are you gonna be a little light in that shoe?" The Left presents itself as the party of enlightened tolerance, manning the garrisons against right-wing hatemongers who are eager to turn back the clock to the Dark Ages (the 1950s). But last night on MSNBC's Hardball, Chris Matthews used a Fifties-era phrase coined to mock homosexuals. Matthews' guest, former House Majority Leader Tom … [Read more...]

Outraged by People Power

One of the enduring myths of the Left is that it somehow represents the common man. Both objective data and public perception show the Democrats are a party of elitists who look down upon the unenlightened hayseeds residing in Jesusland. MSNBC’s Ed Schultz demonstrated this last night with his outrage over a new Gallup poll that shows 34 percent of Americans feel the townhall health care … [Read more...]

A Normal Mom in MSNBC’s Liars’ Den

If Americans had any doubt why Barack Obama’s trillion-dollar health care takeover is failing, allow me to present exhibit A: Katy Abram, a wife and mother from Lebanon, Pennsylvania. Lawrence O’Donnell, a self-described “European socialist,” hosted Hardball in Chris Matthews’ place Wednesday, where he interviewed Abram for daring to speak her mind at a townhall meeting hosted by Sen. Arlen … [Read more...]

Union Violence? What Union Violence?

Pennsylvania Governor and major Hillary Clinton supporter Ed Rendell has found the key difference between conservative and leftist protesters: leftists are angels. Last night on MSNBC’s Hardball, Stephen Moore of the Club for Growth pointed out the excesses of Democratic (and further Left) rabble-rousers, Governor Rendell insisted on a distinction: There's a big difference. The rallies that … [Read more...]

Leftist Hate Crimes

If the Left’s standards of justice prevailed, violence at townhall meetings in St. Louis and Tampa would be prosecuted as a Democratic hate crime. In recent weeks, left-wingers have tried to blame the murder of abortionist George Tiller on Bill O’Reilly and drafted a hate crimes bill that chills free speech. However, it was Nancy Pelosi and her cohorts who created an atmosphere of fear, … [Read more...]

Chris Matthews’ Health Care Amnesia

Chris Matthews apparently caught a case of amnesia concerning a series of inconvenient facts in the health care debate this evening. His guest was Tim Phillips, president of Americans for Prosperity, who did extraordinarily well with Matthews’ typically obnoxious interview method. (At one point Matthews exploded: “I’m giving you all the time you want, Buddy. Don’t do this ‘Hold on’ crap with me, … [Read more...]

Meet the Health Care Astroturfers

Finally, after a week of leftist complaints that the health care debate is being controlled by “astroturfers” — faux grassroots activists actually in the back pocket of super-rich special interests — MSNBC’s “The Ed Show” gave its viewers a chance to see such an activist. Unfortunately, he’s a leftist who supports socialized medicine. Former “West Wing” writer Lawrence O’Donnell filled in … [Read more...]

Soros Care

A rising chorus of discontent – more a citizens uprising – shows Middle America’s deep suspicion of President Obama’s health care reform proposal. Average citizens have voiced their disapproval at townhall meetings hosted by Sen. Arlen Specter and HHS Director Kathleen Sebelius, Rep. Lloyd Doggett, Rep. Tim Bishop, and staffers of Sen. Claire McCaskill. In a burst of passion-envy, Chris Matthews … [Read more...]
