Democrats who held out hopes that President Barack Obama’s health reform win would mean a quick boost to the party’s political fortunes are getting a reality check — a reminder that it takes more than one good week to shake up a year of sliding polls.
Obama and his health reform plan did get a bump […]

Why Is Conservative Media Crushing Liberal Media? (…Maybe b/c liberals are ideologues with no moral principles)
In the light of the recent ratings news–CNN implodes, FOX soars, MSNBC does okay–it’s worth asking a question that no one seems to have a good answer to:Why is conservative media crushing liberal media?
It’s crushing it in ratings, crushing it in profits, crushing it in influence.
Liberal media fans love to decry the stupidity, benightedness, fearfulness, […]

Too bad for them there is video. In […]

Kudos to Daily Beast editor-in-chief Tina Brown for penning an anti-Sarah Palin tirade so vitriolic, I thought there had been a mix-up with her byline and Andrew Sullivan’s. Well, technically she’s blasting John McCain for allowing Palin to campaign for him, because…uh…it’s Sarah Palin, Personification of Evil! Get with the program!
From the hit piece: “Cindy […]
Since the health care reform push hit its final stretch, numerous sweeteners for lawmakers’ districts and states have been found inside the package. Earmark requests are made outside of the health care bill, making them a bit more difficult to link to any vote-trading. But it is precisely that kind of tricky-to-catch deal-making that Republican […]
There is a quiet anger boiling in America.
It is the anger of millions of hard-working citizens who pay their bills, send in their income taxes, maintain their homes and repay their mortgage loans — and see their government reward those who do not.
It is the anger of small town and Middle American folks who have […]
