How America Is Like An Islamic Republic

November 30, 2007

In pondering the case of Gillian Gibbons, the teacher in Sudan sentenced to jail because of a teddy bear named Mohammad, ask yourself a question. What do you think would happen to a public school teacher in America who named a doll Jesus in a public school class project?

Yes, I...

Okay, Now Rudy Has To Answer Some Questions

November 30, 2007
By

TPM has been going through some old financial records from Rudy’s NYC administration. It’s this letter that’s troubling. His administration paid 400k in advance on an American Express account for future billings, which included his travel bills, already in the news.

Of the 400k, only 100k was spent while he was in...

Mitt Romney: Ladies Man?

November 30, 2007
By

While this latest Iowa Caucus poll doesn’t change the horse race aspects as we know them to be, two things do stick out. Romney wins women and Independents fairly easily, two categories the Republican nominee will need to do well with, especially against Hillary, assuming she’s the Dem nominee.

Among women,...

Rush Said: Yeah, But So What?

Jim Geraghty picks up something from yesterday’s Limbaugh show I heard as well:

There was one candidate who did not display any moderateness or liberalism or have any of his past forays into those areas displayed, and...

Howard Dean At It, Again

November 30, 2007
By

It would be nice if someone in the media pointed out the reality behind Howard Dean’s disgusting remarks to the DNC today. It doesn’t take much to break the code. You might recall 1850 was just before a little thing we call the Civil War.

"We are the campaign that the under-30s...

Allah’s Angry Animals

It’s simply pathetic and sad to see so many people intent on doing violence over the naming of a silly bear. It’s impossible to think of these fanatics as anything other than animals.

Slick Hillary: Who Said It?

November 30, 2007
By

Well, it wasn’t someone from the American Spectator. It was a voter in Harlem. Further down in this CBS story on Obama meeting with Bloomberg, it seems he met with Al Sharpton, too. I’m no fan of Sharpton, but the meeting suggests Hillary is playing more defense than she should for...

South Park Gets Real Web Friendly

November 30, 2007
By

I remember when you’d click on a South Park clip only to find out it was pulled from You Tube or some such. Starting next year, every episode on line and free.

The decision from the biggest division of media conglomerate Viacom Inc follows on the heels of the “The Daily Show...

Obama In BLOOMberg?

Bloomberg is an Independent now. Hillary hasn’t exactly been supportive of him. The meeting appeared on Bloomberg’s released schedule for today. Later today,...

Are We There Yet?

A month to go before the real fun starts. Might be a good time to take a look at the polls. You can click around by state and party. Some interesting shifts, with more to come, I’d wager.

Ut Oh: CNN – We Were Against The Questions Before We Were For Them

November 29, 2007
By

This via the New York Times on the 21st: David Bohrman, CNN’s Washington bureau chief and executive producer of the debate:

Most questions online have been pulled from public viewing for review, but many of the remaining posts involve asking the candidates to defend their opposition to gay marriage and abortion. Those...

CNN: Just Stop Digging

November 29, 2007
By

CNN is defending it’s use of several liberal Democrats to ask questions for a conservative driven Republican primary. Um, I think the whole point was they wouldn’t know a reasonable question from a typical conservative if it bit them. But that doesn’t stop them from chewing off their Left arm with...

More CNN Questioner Questions Emerge

Some people think this shouldn’t matter but it does. This was a Republican primary debate. It might have been nice to have some Republicans ask the questions.

Drudge notes as developing a 7.3 earthquake in Martinique and links the USGS data. Blogger Caribbean Lionesse was sitting at her desk at the time:

I just froze and clutched my desk, hoping it would pass but the ground just kept swaying and swaying and swaying. In my mind I was thinking...

Bin Laden Surrenders

November 29, 2007
By

Note that every Bin Laden tape ever released has been extremely attentive to American politics. While the headlines blast bin Laden’s latest plea, for Europeans to stop helping the US in Afghanistan, I’ve yet to see a report of any mention of Iraq, which has long been his central theme. He...

November 29, 2007
By

Robert Redford’s Sundance Film Festival has announced the line up of films for this year and we learn from festival director Geoffrey Gilmore, they aren’t so political. Really?

Fest director Geoffrey Gilmore noted that the films on view this year are surprisingly "not as political or social issue-oriented as last year.

Let’s see:
