The LA Times: President Obama should just join the cast of "I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here!" It's not that farfetched; he's been on everything else. The president is on TV more than the ShamWow guy, but I want to see a little more action. I'm still a fan, but there's a fine line between ...

PajamasMedia: I am afraid I no longer believe . . . …That we have an inquisitive American media as we once knew it. There has emerged something as bad as state-sanctioned coercion—which we could at least identify, and thus struggle against.

NewsBusters: Newsweek editor Evan Thomas appeared on Sunday's edition of Inside Washington and lauded President Obama as a "brave," "great teacher" who "stands above everybody." These comments were only slightly less hyperbolic than a gushing assertion on Friday's Hardball. On that program, the journalist cooed, "I mean in a way Obama’s standing above the country, above ...

Sotomayor’s “ex-husband” is a Chicago attorney....Sotomayor’s “boy toys” could be evidence of inability to function in a normal male-female environment or, once again, “beards” designed to conceal her deeply-closeted sexuality. Chicago muckraker Andy Martin bares the “Chicago connection” to Second Circuit Appeals Judge Sonia Sotomayor and ...

This is an obvious attempt to discredit, mock, and ridicule the Former First Lady. Half of this article playfully jokes about Nancy "talking" to her husband's ghost, in an obvious smear campaign to discredit her sanity. There is absolutely no point and no reason to bring up, as it is irrelevant to the actual point ...
