    Also from MMFA: Beck, Limbaugh, and Savage have all suggested that the White House set this whole thing up so that Fox News could fail.

  • on a comment on Huffpo Sherroded Me over 4 years ago

    What they were interested in was catching her in lies

    I get that, but catching someone in lies they actually tell is very different than making up claims that they lied when they didn't. You're saying HuffPo wanted to do the former. I'm saying Breitbart does the latter, and asking you if HuffPo would have wanted you to do so as well if you didn't find any actual lies. Was there evidence that she was indeed changing the speech, even a little, as most pols do? Looking for an opponent's lies where they don't exist may be undesirable, but it can't be compared to intentionally lying yourself about that opponent. Yes, HuffPo and Breitbart both seek to advance agendas, but I haven't seen any evidence yet that their tactics are the same, and that's Breitbart's problem - his tactics, not that happens to have an agenda.

    You're right, Obama barely lifted a finger. http://dotearth.blogs.nytimes.com/2010/07/22/with-no-obama-push-senate-punts-on-climate/

    I'm willing to believe Reid when he says it was impossible to pass a bill, but he should have at least forced the "moderate" GOPpers to vote against it.

    Front-page post on this soon.

  • comment on a post Huffpo Sherroded Me over 4 years ago

    Did HuffPo ask you to deliberatly distort her speeches, Breitbart style? Because it doesn't sound like it when you say they wanted you to "write stories demonstrating she was a liar by writing that in different places she slanted her message to the audience." If they thought that was the truth, they just wanted you to point it out, right? Did they specifically ask you to lie in order to write those stories?

    HuffPo has a bias. I don't read it on a regular basis. But having a bias is not the same thing as lying and dishonestly editing to push your bias no matter what the facts say.

    And that's just CO-Gov. Remember the GOP problems in CO-Sen with sexism. Eesh.

    I love this new feature, Charles, I hope you keep it up.

  • Where does Manchin come down on MTR?

    I could never vote for someone almost 100 for Senator, but it'd be nice if they had some public debates so he could push the issue. Of course Manchin would never agree to that.

    I guess I would've preferred to see him run for Governor once the office is vacated. Of course I guess he could be dead by then, so this is his one chance to take a stand... well the more I think about it, the more I'm glad this activist is engaging the public like this. There's little more he could do - very cool! What was the filing fee, do you know?

  • Please vote... as pissed as you may be at Obama, and as much as some in the administration may deserve it, they're not nearly as bad as Speaker Boehner would be... I'd rather have weak bills that move in the right direction than the Bush status quo, and Boehner would work to repeal financial regulation...

    Rahm will probably resign after the midterms to run for Mayor of Chicago. It'll be a turning point one way or the other to see who Obama taps to replace him.

    For the record, Rockefeller did indeed vote FOR Murkowski's resolution. So at least he's not a hypocrite...

    Does the Times allow blockquotes that long?

  • comment on a post The Closing of the Conservative Mind over 4 years ago

    It's not just Fox and Friends - NPR's report on All Things Considered mentioned biggovernment.com or whatever it is, but not Brietbart by name. (Which was odd since he was quoted in the next story on another subject.)

    And yeah, when even Erickson and Beck criticize the firing and video, you know the guy's a true monster.

    Is Manchin closer to Byrd or to Rockefeller and Goodwin on coal issues?
