Whiff!

Yeah, I know I've been slacking with the blogging recently, so to make up for it, here is concentrated bloggy goodness for you all.

[Snipped Budget Comments, as I cover this in the next entry]

Glenn Beck signs off his Fox News show. If you heard massive cheering from the Left this week, it came because they "succeeded" in getting Glenn Beck off the air. Media Matters even held a "going away" party for him. Of course, they don't quite tell the entire story, that being the real reason Beck left Fox News: to start his own network. No matter how much you try to push the line he was fired (which begs the question of why Fox News let him keep airing his show for weeks after he was fired), Beck moved on, but he's not going anywhere. Well, except to Israel in August, but that's beside the point. Celebrate while you can, Leftists. Beck will continue to be a thorn in your sides for a while yet.

You don't "quite tell the entire story" either. The "network" is an internet web channel.

Letting a canceled show finish up is nothing new. Do you really believe Beck quit the number one news channel in order to make what's basically a right-wing webcam show?

There's no need to lie about Beck. He'll probably make a nice profit from the show. But there's no doubt about it: Beck was fired.

Why Sarah Palin isn't announcing yet (if at all). Given the media coverage of the Republican candidates, any candidate with an R behind his or her name is going to be scrutinized heavily. Of course, this isn't a bad thing in my opinion, provided it's done a) evenly, and b) with the intent of finding out the truth, not trying to score petty
political points. So far, the media have failed miserably on both counts, in my opinion. Whether it was Chris Wallace of Fox News Sunday asking Michelle Bachmann if she was a "flake"

That's a fair question, as it's something people wanted to know. Wallace shouldn't have apologized (something you didn't mention, BTW, as you love to lie through omission).

"Liberals just hate a strong, not very bright, batshit crazy woman!"

Yeah, she's only bought into the "vaccinations = super retard babies" mantra, which is not only flaky, it's insane.

Her own party is doing her in. The GOP has never supported Bachmann... in 2008 they even refused to support her in her congressional campaign (she won anyway).

to Jon Stewart's adoption of a stereotypical "black voice" to mock Herman Cain, the media have become modern day muckrakers stumping for the Left in varying degrees.

Oh, for god's sake... he doing an impression and sounded just like him. He does that with everybody:

Again, just like when you were bitching about another comedian (Bill Maher), why not ask what black people think?

Oh, because that doesn't fit your narrative:

Yet again, you have to resort to comedians.

I guess when you can't defend the guy you helped get elected President, you have to cut down the people who could oppose him.

Ah, yes, the big "liberal media" conspiracy got him elected. Before you said Obama was elected because he was black.

Oh, and "defend him" from what? You have to do something wrong first. That's why you have to trash him for idiotic things like paper clips. Oh noes! We must defend him! lol

The trial everybody should have paid attention to, but didn't. Geert Wilders was acquitted of hate crime charges stemming from statements he made about Islam. Why this is such an important case is because it reaffirms freedom of speech. Oddly enough, I didn't see too many Leftists taking up for Wilders during his case, but I did see more than a few conservatives, including my good friend Warchick, taking up for him. Makes you wonder who really supports free speech in the world, doesn't it?

Makes you wonder who the racist xenophobes are, doesn't it?

WARCHICK the right-wing tranny?

WARCHICK that proudly states he/she is a "Racist" and an "Oppressor of Brown people"?

Ah well, should be no surprise that he/she is your "friend". After all, you yourself have said you are who you hang out with.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geert_Wilders#Political_principles

Wilders supports replacement of the present Article 1 of the Dutch constitution, guaranteeing equality under the law, by a clause stating the cultural dominance of the Christian, Jewish and humanist traditions.

He wants to REPEAL EQUALITY UNDER THE LAW.

Even the 14th Amendment revisionists (ie right-wingers) don't support that notion. At least, not out loud.

Wilders is not that hot about freedom of the press either.

Mr. Wilders, if even the populist Canadian tabloids you presumably hoped would sing your praises say you went too far, they may have a point.

Funny how right-wingers defend free speech when it's a right-winger making (shocker!) hate speech against Muslims, but that's about it.

Just because "Leftists" think Wilders is a cocksucker, doesn't mean they don't support the right to free speech.
