THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Ken Berwitz Today\’s quote comes to us from Chris Rock, who not only was riotously funny as MC of the Oscars last night (click here for the video), but made one great point after another…with no one on any side spared. This was my single favorite – Mr. Rock describing his photo-op with President Obama at a Hollywood campaign rally: “So, at some point you get to take a...

RUBIO\’S PENIS INSULT

Ken Berwitz “I learned long ago, never to wrestle with a pig. You get dirty, and besides, the pig likes it.”:  George Bernard Shaw Marco Rubio, who seems, more and more, not to be ready for prime time, apparently never got that message. This weekend Rubio, who has been a continuing butt of donald trump\’s vicious personal insults (which certainly does not separate him...

CELEBRATING BLACK HISTORY?

Ken Berwitz The middle school in Rowlett, a town in north Texas, had a Black History Month celebration on Friday – which stirred up enough of a controversy so that the town\’s police chief spoke up, calling it “A direct attack on police”, and “a sad day” for Rowlett.

TRUMP: THE BAD EARPHONE COUNTERPUNCHER?

Ken Berwitz donald trump was on the Today Show this morning.  Among his more ludicrous comments (I\’ll update with verbatims when I can get them), we have: -He didn\’t say he couldn\’t disavow the racist anti-Semite david duke because he wasn\’t aware of duke himself, it was because he wasn\’t aware of “other groups” that were also being talked...

TRUMP: LATINOS CAN\’T BE FAIR, DAVID DUKE CAN\’T BE CONDEMNED

Ken Berwitz Today we have this, from Michael Isikoff\’s article at yahoo.com… Donald Trump said today he may ask the federal judge overseeing an upcoming civil fraud trial involving the now defunct Trump University to recuse himself because he is Hispanic and is therefore biased against him due to his plan to build a wall to keep out immigrants from Mexico. …and this, from...

MELISSA HARRIS-PERRY: OVER AND OUT

Ken Berwitz The Washington Post is now reporting that Melissa Harris-Perry\’s four hours of hosting on MSNBC (10AM – Noon on Saturday and Sunday) is over.   Call me a pessimist, but I don\’t think it helped her longevity prospects when Ms. Harris-Perry essentially accused NBC News Chief Andy Lack and MSNBC President Phil Griffin of being racists.  Her exact...

TRUMP\’S SOUTH CAROLINA WIN

THE ECLIPSED LESSON

IS MITT ROMNEY GOING TO CHALLENGE DONALD TRUMP?

Ken Berwitz In the past two days, the blogosphere is jumping with “news” (speculation, actually), that as donald trump closes in on the Republican nomination – most likely because, although many Republicans are against him, their votes have been split among multiple other candidates – Mitt Romney will be recruited by the party to come back and try to save it from trump...
