Martin Bashir is looking for work. Any suggestions?

Martin Bashir has resigned from MSNBC after trash-mouthing former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin. If he was forced out (and who would argue that he wasn’t), I think that it’s too bad. They should keep him around. Just like Rush Limbaugh is a favorite of lefties because he supposedly exemplifies everything bad about the right, Bashir has... Read more »

Mother Jones 2012 is Sarah Palin

Mother Jones Magazine, ya’ll know, is everything that the far left loves, about politics, the environment and the shared hatred of everything conservative. Thus there is great irony that this rag named itself after the Sarah Palin of last century. The always astute Hickey explains why in this excellent and “shocking” post on his blog, With...

The goofy Sarah Palin sculpture reminds me of Harold Washington in women's undies

Conservatives are riled over an ugly sculpture of Sarah Palin, now on exhibit at the Bridgeport Art Center. The sculpture, which has been on tour, features a gapping, yawling mouth in which a pig can be roasted. Conservatives also have been riled about the nude (full frontal) painting of  of Palin in the Old Town Ale... Read more »

Obama's vacation wasn't long enough

Or far enough away. Republicans giving President Barack Obama the shive for daring to take a vacation should recall what a cheap political stunt the criticism was when it came from Democrats while President George W. Bush was taking his vacation. Sarah Palin joined in this mindless criticism during on interview with Fox News’ Greta... Read more »

This is being e-mailed from Organizing for America, a political front group for Obama ( to people who contributed to Obama’s presidential campaign.

Left wing media hypocrisy

UPDATE: For all you lefties who don’t see any hypocrisy in this, did you notice the subhead: “She’s bad news for the GOP–and everyone else too” To continue the comparisons: What if Newsweek ran a cover picture of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi with the caption, “She’s bad news for the Democrats–and everyone else too.” Which...

Oprah to interview Sarah Palin

Now that the election is over Oprah finally has to live up to her promise to interview Palin only after the presidential election. This was while Oprah has busily endorsing Barack Obama. (Stories here and here) Here’s an interesting tidbit: Palin’s new book, Going Rogue: An American Life, as CBS notes: Going Rogue” rose to... Read more »

Lisa Madigan our own Sarah Palin?

Now here’s a scenario to consider: If Lisa Madigan were governor what would her father, House Speaker Michael Madigan have done with her budget if he didn’t like it. Lisa Madigan, in deciding to seek re-election as Attorney General, made the right decision for her and the state because of the endless potential for conflicts... Read more »

Sarah Palin nails it again

Jokers in the media just couldn’t let it rest, resorting to ridicule and unfounded rumors in the wake of her decision to resign as governor of Alaska, possibly to prepare a presidential campaign. “How sad that Washington and the media will never understand; it’s about country,” the Sarah Palin statement says. “And though it’s honorable...

Sarah Palin's last laugh on dolt columnists

Something called the National Society of Newspaper Columnists (NSNC) has awarded Sarah Palin its Sitting Duck Award as the “most ridiculed newsmaker in America.” Astonishingly, the former Alaska governor and Republican Vice Presidential candidate outdistanced the buffoon of the decade and former Illinois governor Rod Blagojevich, who came in second. Just so we get this... Read more »
