ANDREA MITCHELL: THE AGONY AND THE HONESTY

The agony must have been excruciating.  Andrea Mitchell, as strong an Obama supporter as there is on mainstream media (ok, ok, she\’s in a tie with dozens of others, but a strong supporter anyway) could not fake a smiley-face about the economic news that had just come out – even as a good many of the others seemed just fine with doing so. Here is what Ms. Mitchell had to say on...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today\’s quote comes from a personal favorite of President Obama\’s; the self-professed communist Van Jones. Jones, who was a “Green Jobs” advisor for the Obama administration until some of the loonier elements of his past caught up with him (e.g., aside from being a communist,  he signed a petition indicating that 9/11 was an inside job) and he...

IS THOMAS E. DUNCAN DEAD?

There are reports – not yet confirmed – that thomas e. duncan, who lied about his ebola and flew to the USA with a planeload of people, then had physical contact with God knows how many here, has died of the ebola virus. How many more did he put at risk?  How many more will he take with him who don\’t even know they have the ebola virus yet?  How many more will they...

JACKASS JOE STRIKES AGAIN

Someone left the attic door unlocked again, and he got out. Joe Biden, speaking to a crowd in Joplin, Missouri on Friday: “161,000brothers, sisters, mothers, fathers, sons, daughters, grandparentslost” Allow me to put 160,839 families\’ fears to rest:  The death total from the tornado which hit Joplin, Missouri on May 22, 2011 – horrible though it was...

ABOUT THAT JOBS REPORT

Great news on jobs.  From August to September, unemployment dropped from 6.1% to 5.9%, and 248,000 new jobs were created. What a lucky break for Democrats, who can now run on these terrific new numbers (assuming that anyone is paying attention, as ISIS advances and ebola becomes a major health concern). But are the numbers really as good as they look? Well, let\’s start with...

DEMOCRATS RUNNING FROM OBAMA? REALLY?

“Iam not on the ballot this fall.  Michelle\’s pretty happy aboutthat.  But make no mistake: these policies are on the ballot. Every single one of them.”:  President Obama, Thursday Can a Democrat senate or house candidate credibly run an anti-Barack Obama campaign? Mr. Obama is certainly giving them a chance to find out. Excerpted from Noah...

LIVIN\’ LA FANTASIA LOCA

Just one more quick post before Yom Kippur: If President Obama thinks that by standing in front of an angry crowd of Latino activists, as he did yesterday, telling them they\’ll get everything they want – after the election – and uttering “si se puede, si, votamos” (“yes we can, if we vote”), they will go running to the polling booths...

YOM KIPPUR

Yom Kippur is going to start shortly, so I won\’t be blogging for a day. Not that I am religious .  But I fast, and more or less observe Yom Kippur by refraining from many activities,out of respect for those in my family who are observant, and for the countless Jews who were not able to observe religious holidays in the past, no matter how observant they...

BENJAMIN NETANYAHU SCHOOLS ANDREA MITCHELL

Note to Andrea Mitchell: If you\’re going to challenge Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, expect an answer. A straight answer. One that he will be able to defend with facts and logic – not with a broad smile, with smooth, glib platitudes and lies. From Mitchell\’s interview of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, yesterday, on MSNBC: Mitchell:But...

SELF-DESTRUCTIVE ARROGANCE AT WORK

I would not have said this in 2008 or 2012…..but for the current election year, Republicans have no better friend than President Barack Obama. With his plunging overall approval ratings, disastrous ratings on handling terrorism and immigration, and, most recently, his too-little-too-late recognition of the ebola threat, the last thing most Democrat candidates want is for the...

ISIS, EBOLA, UNILATERAL AMNESTY…..OH, AND BY THE WAY…

TWO FUNNY GAFFES TO START AN UNFUNNY DAY

Today is not a good news day.  But, given what there is to blog about, I thought I would start things off with a smile – before we get into the other stuff. In the last couple of days, two gaffes – one by a TV show host and the other by a major newspaper, managed to get a spontaneous laugh out of me.  Maybe you\’ll get a laugh out of them too. The first is from al...

MEGYN KELLY EATS JEN PSAKI FOR DINNER

I wish I were taping this.  I am watching Megyn Kelly taking State Department spokesperson Jen Psaki apart and putting her back together again.  Kelly, by simply but firmly dealing in facts and common sense, made Psaki look like the incompetent, ridiculous, overmatched flyweight that she is.  Anyone who thinks just-forced-out Director of the Secret Service Jean Pierson was the...

LOUIS FARRAKHAN ASSURES ME I\’M SAFE FROM EBOLA

I would like to take this opportunity to thank louis farrakhan – once the most prominent Black supremacist in the country, but long since supplanted by more salable types, like al Sharpton (MSNBC will never give farrakhan a TV show). farrakhan has been kind enough to assure me that I will never get ebola.  Why?  because ebola is a disease invented by White people (like me) to...
