Interesting note from Don Surber this morning. But the real inappropriate relationships in last year’s presidential campaign were between ACORN and the campaigns of both Obama and Democrat Hillary Clinton. The Times ignored that story. Unlike the McCain affair, multitudes of reporters were not rushed to flood the zone on this game changer. Well, of course. Don isn’t […]

There’s a fair amount of defense being put up for Edwards this morning, most of it knee-jerkish. One of the points of defense is that supposedly the National Enquirer got the ‘love child aspect wrong. Me at OTB just now: Yes, well, we are not exactly flush with evidence on that point, are we? All […]

Hume: On his upcoming overseas trip, Barack Obama will be met along the way by the anchors of the three network evening newscasts. About 200 other journalists have also asked to join Obama during his trip. But Howard Kurtz of The Washington Post reports that John McCain has taken three foreign trips in the past […]

A first at the OTB Caption Contest. Like shooting chickens in a barrel. Boortz is suggesting “God Bless America” as a national anthem. Come on, Neal, let’s not mess with the anti-God freaks, again, huh? Oh, speaking of Neal… he points out that they’ve not labeled Spitzer a Democrat, yet. But they’ve labeled him a […]

Why is it David Brooks considers Regan’s legacy needlessly narrow, and a myth, while Kennedy has a ‘mystique’?

Chuck Simmins over at the North Shore Journal advises us tha a new milestone has been reached… The 20,000th anti-Iraq terrorist has been killed. Funny how we’re not hearing much about it, huh? Addendum: I see Memeorandum has it up now.

So, today… Just today… we find out that Edwards and Kerry never really got along during their campaign in ’04. And this from the New York Times, no less: To the end of their disappointing run, the two men were unable to agree on the script, whether for slogans or more substantive matters. And like […]

Gotta love Glenn’s comment about Pat Robertson and Rudy Giuliani, today. “Evangelical Christian leader Pat Robertson on Wednesday endorsed former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani.” Well, it’s only fair — Hillary has to deal with the Mondale endorsement . . . . I spoke on this, earlier today. Thing is, it’s the combination of that […]

On the subject of a biased press, comes Investor’s Business Daily: Just like so many reports before it, a joint survey by the Project for Excellence in Journalism and Harvard’s Joan Shorenstein Center on the Press, Politics and Public Policy — hardly a bastion of conservative orthodoxy — found that in covering the current presidential […]
