November 2010

It wasn’t just the old man smell, it was the constant repetition of the same boring story with details changing in every telling of the tale.

Here’s Harry Reid on the floor of the Senate, opening the lame duck session with a remarkably rambling tale of football. And redemption. Or something.

This is who you just re-elected, Nevada. On behalf of conservative bloggers across the fruited plain, let us give you a big thank you.

In what’s become a bizarre and insulting tradition, Michelle Obama once again chose a very odd place to flaunt her wealth on Thanksgiving: a Washington, DC-area food bank.

Last April she she appeared at the same food bank wearing Lanvin sneakers that cost more than the average annual income in Kenya. This year she wore a $495 Prova scarf.

The Washington Examiner has the fashion highlights from down at the food bank:

For this occasion of serving the community, Michelle opted to wear an ivory knit vest layered atop another long sleeve, ivory knit sweater. This is a rather interesting choice of apparel. If she wanted to layer, you would think she would have chosen two separate colors, right? However, the monochromatic look is indeed in this season. Perhaps, the first lady was trying to be on the cutting edge of fashion, as she so often is. She paired these sweaters with a silk, lavender colored Prova scarf (similar to the one she wore at an Indonesian mosque recently). The scarf was highlighted layered fringes of gunmetal beads and white pom poms.

We don’t know Prova from Pravda, but it turns out there might not be that much difference between the two – the line also includes a line of “Sandinista” scarves.

We’re honestly surprised that Michelle Antoinette didn’t wear one of those in support of the murderous, socialist Nicaraguan regime.

UPDATE: Turns out Michelle does own one of Prova’s Sandinista scarves. You can see it covering her head during her visit to the Indonesian mosque last month. Figures.

No joke: United Nations approves killing gays

by editor on November 30, 2010

If there’s anyone – anyone – who still believes the United Nations still plays any positive role in the world, this story should dissuade them of that fantasy.

iran gay execution

How Iran defines the term "gay swingers"

The Huffington Post has the details, so let’s not have any of that “This is just another crazy conservative conspiracy” talk:

Last week, the Third Committee of the United Nations General Assembly voted on a special resolution addressing extrajudicial, arbitrary and summary executions. The resolution affirms the duties of member countries to protect the right to life of all people with a special emphasis on a call to investigate killings based on discriminatory grounds. The resolution highlights particular groups historically subject to executions including street children, human rights defenders, members of ethnic, religious, and linguistic minority communities, and, for the past 10 years, the resolution has included sexual orientation as a basis on which some individuals are targeted for death.

The tiny West African nation of Benin (on behalf of the UN’s African Group) proposed an amendment to strike sexual minorities from the resolution. The amendment was adopted with 79 votes in favor, 70 against, 17 abstentions and 26 absent …

All the usual suspects voted for the right to kill gays: Muslim nations (Afghanistan, Algeria, Iran, Egypt, Eritrea, Malaysia, Morocco, Pakistan, Sudan, Yemen), an assortment of well-known human rights violators (China, Congo, Cuba, North Korea, Russia, Vietnam and Zimbabwe), and an assortment of nations with surprisingly harsh anti-gay laws (Bahamas, Belize, Jamaica, Grenada, Guyana, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and South Africa).

None of them, apparently, believe the persecution and execution of gays is important enough to condemn or investigate.

Screw the United Nations. And I think you know where.

This is classic. Consider it the European equivalent to that moment that moment when Rick Santelli erupted on CNBC and the Tea Party was created.

The scene is European Parliament in Strasbourg on November 24. Nigel Farage, a member of the European Parliament representing the United Kingdom, is involved in a debate about economic governance when he loses it.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-KAWXC5Z0wU

“We don’t want that flag, we don’t want the anthem, we don’t want this political class. We want the whole thing consigned to the dust bin of history … You are very, very dangerous people indeed. Your obsession with creating this Euro-state means that you’re happy to destroy democracy. You appear to be happy for millions and millions of people to be unemployed and to be poor. Untold millions must suffer so that your Euro-dream can continue ….”

It sounded like about half a dozen people applauded when he was done. That’s more than we would have expected.

Nigel Farage is willing to tell the truth, which won’t get him anywhere in politics.

The Swiss have always been known for watches, chocolates and secret bank accounts. To that list, you can now add rational laws.

black-sheep-swiss-poster

"Get rid of the black sheep" seems like a simple message unless you're a liberal who sees racism in everything

Reuters reports the results of the Swiss referendum:

Most Swiss voting in a referendum have approved the easier expulsion of foreigners convicted of serious crimes such as murder, according to preliminary computer projections released on Sunday by national television.

In the latest sign of growing hostility to immigration in the Alpine state, 53 percent of voters accepted a proposal to deport automatically foreigners convicted of crimes including rape or trafficking in drugs or people.

Of course, Reuters reports that those supporting the ballot measure are “right wing.” But the political affiliation of those opposed to the law is left mysteriously unmentioned.

… The initiative was put forward by the right-wing Swiss People’s Party (SVP), which has played on rising fear about immigration in recent years to become the country’s biggest political movement.

Posters for the SVP’s proposal show a group of white sheep kicking a black sheep off the Swiss flag. They first ran when the SVP was collecting signatures for the referendum.

Last year the Swiss passed another “right wing” law that outlawed the construction of new minarets. That law was not popular with guys named Mohammed.

“First the Muslims and minarets, now criminals,” said Mohammed, a native of Lebanon who recently received his Swiss passport. “We’re not all criminals.”

Why, if we were you, Mo, we’d say, “Screw Switzerland,” give up our pretty new Swiss passport and return to the paradise otherwise known as Lebanon where rapists, drug dealers and slave traders are apparently treated like kings.

In all the excitement of the Republican takeover of the House, this news item has been overlooked. Just when you thought the Congressional Black Caucus had its full quota of lunatics, along comes newly-elected Florida Rep. Frederica Wilson.

frederica-wilson

A tip of the IHTM cap to new Representative Frederica Wilson

Yahoo.com has the details:

… Wilson’s first goal is to overturn a rule that blocks her from wearing a hat on the House floor. The freshman Democrat is pressing incoming House Speaker John Boehner to overturn the rule, which dates back to the 1800s, or at least to make an exception for her. But it’s unclear whether Boehner — who, in any event, will likely have plenty of priorities ahead of a rule-change request from a member of the opposition party — could do anything, shy of a full floor vote, to overturn the House’s hat ban.

You see, Wilson doesn’t own just a hat or two. By her count, the former Florida state House member owns at least 300 different hats, including custom-made sequined cowboy hats in virtually every color of the rainbow. Her hat collection is so massive, it takes up an entire room of her house, per the Miami New Times. “I’ve been wearing them almost 30 years,” Wilson tells Politifact. “It’s like a fetish.”

Nice to see that Wilson has her priorities straight and that her first order of business will be taking care of her fetish.

Wilson will undoubtedly be warmly welcomed to the CBC by fellow lunatics Jesse Jackson Jr, Sanford Bishop, Keith Ellison, Chaka Fattah, Alcee Hastings, Eddie Bernice Johnson, Hank Johnson, Barbara Lee, Sheila Jackson Lee, John Lewis, Charlie Rangel and Maxine Waters.

She ought to fit right in.

Whoopie Goldberg meets Mike Huckabee. What could go wrong?

In this clip, The View’s Whoopi Goldberg tells Fox News’ Mike Huckabee that the times in which we live warrant the “police state” security measures we now face at airports across the nation.

“No, it’s not comfortable and it’s not the way I would like to live,” Goldberg said, “but if it’s going to keep me from getting blown out of the sky, you can check anything you want. And if you feel something you like and squeeze it, what am I going to do?”

Suddenly, we’re viewing this thing from a completely different perspective.

Any TSA agent who has to feel Whoopi Goldberg’s nether regions deserves hazard pay, not condemnation.

It’s just too horrible to imagine.

Of course, Democrats would have you believe that the terms “states rights” is secret conservative code for racism, but Virginia is leading the way in explaining what it really means.

It may be symbolized by new “Don’t Tread On Me” license plates, but the states rights fight goes much further.

dont-tread-on-me-license-plate The Washington Examiner explains the growing protest in its own back yard:

From Virginia’s lawsuit over health-care reforms to a bill that would create “Don’t Tread on Me” license plates, a growing movement is percolating among the Old Dominion’s top GOP officials and the conservative rank-and-file to push back against federal authority over an array of issues.

The state’s top three elected officials, for example, have voiced support for an amendment to the U.S. Constitution that would allow a decision by two-thirds of state legislatures to override federal law.

The movement for the so-called “Repeal Amendment” could gather momentum next year, as state legislatures that shifted from blue to red after the November elections begin their deliberations. Republicans have added more than 675 seats in state legislatures during this election cycle and have flipped chambers from Democratic to Republican control in at least 13 states, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures.

That movement is only one expression of anti-federal sentiment in Virginia.
Del. John O’Bannon, R-Henrico, filed a bill at the request of his constituents that would create a “Don’t Tread on Me” license plate.

And Del. Mark Cole, R-Spotsylvania, filed a bill that would allow goods produced or manufactured in the state and which remain in Virginia to be exempt from federal regulation or Congress’ constitutional power to regulate interstate commerce.

“The federal government, I think, has just gone way beyond what it was intended,” Cole said. “It’s time for the states to start pushing back.”

California, the basket case state, will introduce a new license plate featuring an image of a donkey and the line, “Please save my ass.”

Missouri’s Democrat Senator Claire McCaskill showed up on Fox News Sunday this week and told Chris Wallace that the Wikileakers “need to do a gut check on their patriotism.” 


Don’t look now, Claire, but none of these guys are American.

Julian Assange is Australian. Wikileaks servers are located in Sweden. And although the actual creators of Wikileaks haven’t been identified, the site says it was “founded by Chinese dissidents, journalists, mathematicians and start-up company technologists, from the US, Taiwan, Europe, Australia and South Africa”. Chinese, English, Brazilian and Australian citizens are listed on its board of advisors.

So what country does the Show Me State genius expect these lunatics to be patriotic toward?

We’d be willing to bet that most Americans don’t know that Raila Odinga, Barack Obama’s cousin, is the new Prime Minister of Kenya. Nor that he’s an avowed socialist. Nor that Obama went to Kenya to campaign for him. Nor that he’s virulently anti-gay.

obama odinga

Barack Obama campaigning for his homophobic, socialist Kenyan cousin Raila Odinga

Kenya’s Capital News reports the news the American media won’t:

Mr Odinga on Sunday said that police should arrest anyone found engaging in such behaviours and take appropriate legal action against them.

“We will not tolerate such behaviours in the country. The constitution is very clear on this issue and men or women found engaging in homosexuality will not be spared,” Mr Odinga said.

“Any man found engaging in sexual activities with another man should be arrested. Even women found engaging in sexual activities will be arrested,” the premier warned.

Speaking at a public rally at the Kamukunji grounds in his Nairobi’s Kibera constituency on Sunday afternoon, the Prime Minister cited the recent population census results which put the ratio of men to women equal and wondered why people should engage in homosexuality.

“This [homosexual] kind of behaviours will not be tolerated in this country. Men or women found engaging in those acts deserve to be arrested and will be arrested,” he told a hilarious crowd.

We’re pretty much convinced that if Odinga ever saw his cousin throw a baseball an arrest warrant would be issued post haste.

Cher, one of the intellectual giants of late 20th century political thought, told Jay Leno that the Tea Party is f-ing nuts. Of course, this comes from a woman who is f-ing nuts herself. This is a woman who:

cher-tea-party

Cher has had so much plastic surgery that she is now virtually indistinguishable from OctoMom

  1. Has had so much plastic surgery that she is now virtually indistinguishable from OctoMom.
  2. Named her son Elijah Blue.
  3. Named her daughter Chastity.
  4. Has a daughter (Chastity) who recently became her son (Chaz).
  5. From 1965-74, added an accent to her name to become Chér, a Frenchification that rendered her one syllable name virtually unpronounceable.
  6. Moved in with a 22-year old bagel maker when she was forty.
  7. Dated a 38-year old biker when she was sixty-three.
  8. Married heroin and cocaine addict Greg Allman three days after divorcing Sonny.
  9. Changed her name to Cher in 1979. No middle name. No last name. No accent, either.
  10. Called David Letterman “an asshole” during an interview on his late night TV show (OK, well, maybe that one doesn’t count against her).

Admittedly, we don’t speak Spanish, so this may not be a literal translation, but we’re pretty sure that’s the gist of this story.

obama-chavez

Brothers in socialism greet each other with the super secret South American socialist handshake

Fox News has the details:

During his most recent blanket television broadcast, Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez took the opportunity to embrace President Obama, inviting him to join him in the construction of a new world order.

Chávez was responding to President Obama’s recent quip about diverting Air Force One in order to pay Caracas a visit. Leaving a NATO summit in Portugal, the president joked, according to a tweet by CBS reporter Mark Knoller, about having “AF-1 fly home via South America so he could visit Hugo Chavez.”

“Well, Obama, if you said that,” Chávez remarked, “we’ll receive you here. I’d shake your hand again.”

… Chávez went on, jovially stating that, were Obama to pay him a visit, both leaders would “sit down to talk, to eat socialist arepas.”

Socialist arepas. Obviously a Spanish euphemism meaning, “the beating hearts of anyone who believes in capitalism.”

What’s that? Arepas are type of corn-based pancakes popular in Venezuela? Yeah, well, maybe so. But we’re pretty sure our translation is closer to what Chavez really meant.

First the government buys General Motors. Then they require the company to build electric cars that the public doesn’t want and won’t buy. So how can the government paper over this fiscal fiasco? By purchasing the cars from itself, of course.

obama-electric-car

We all know who's in the driver's seat for this fiscal fiasco

In the words of Aretha Franklin, who’s zoomin’ who?

Fox News has the details of the government-created demand for government-created products:

President Barack Obama’s administration has bought almost a fourth of the Ford Motor Co. and General Motors Co. hybrid vehicles sold since he took office, accelerating federal purchases as consumer demand wanes.

The U.S. General Services Administration, which runs the government fleet, bought at least 14,584 hybrid vehicles in the past two fiscal years, or about 10 percent of 145,473 vehicles the agency purchased in that period, according to sales data obtained by Bloomberg under a Freedom of Information Act request. In fiscal 2008, hybrids accounted for less than 1 percent of government purchases, the data showed.

The government is boosting investment in a technology that has failed to win broad acceptance after more than a decade in the marketplace. Consumer sales of hybrids are headed for their third consecutive yearly decline. Government agencies and businesses have said they also will purchase all-electric models being introduced by automakers including GM.

“At some point, the reality is that for this technology to be accepted, it needs to be done without a government crutch,” said Jeff Schuster, director of forecasting at J.D. Power & Associates in Troy, Michigan. “But without a huge gas-price increase or further government demand, the natural demand just isn’t to be there.”

To complete the story, it should be pointed out that Government Motors does have one other big customer in addition to itself.

General Electric, which makes the recharging stations for electric cars and who also received a big pile of stimulus money, has announced that it will buy a fleet of electric cars.

Can anyone say, “Shell game.”

President Obama is resting comfortably after being whacked up the side of the head. And this time we’re not talking about the mid-term elections.

obama-ice-pack

Awwww, President Obama nurses his wounds in the White House.

The President took an errant elbow the upper lip during a basketball game on Friday and had to get 12 stitches.

The Associated Press has the details all sewn up:

Press secretary Robert Gibbs said in a statement that Obama was inadvertently struck by an elbow. The elbow’s owner wasn’t identified.

Obama received the stitches under local anesthesia in the doctor’s office on the ground floor White House after he returned home.

The president had traveled to nearby Fort McNair to indulge in one of his favorite athletic pursuits, basketball. It was a five-on-five contest involving family and friends and including Reggie Love, Obama’s personal assistant who played at Duke University.

Friends and family? What family? Was Michelle playing power forward? Aunti Zeituni leading a fast break? Sasha coming in off the bench?

C’mon, why do they try to make this sound like some warm, loving family get-together? Fact is, Obama was out there with his buddies playing hoops while the his daughters sat at home wondering where daddy was and Michelle wondered if Reggie Love is a name or a description of the services he provides.

Why that Fidel Castro is starting to sound like a Republican in his old age. And you know what that means – President Obama won’t give him one of those super secret South American socialist handshakes next time they get together.

chavez-castro

One of the three amigos is missing

AFP has details of the socialist spat:

In an article published in response to the Western alliance’s weekend summit in Portugal, the former Cuban leader called NATO an “aggressive institution” that ignored “billions of persons suffering from poverty, underdevelopment, shortages of food, housing, health, education and jobs.”

Castro called NATO “a bird of prey sitting in the lap of the Yankee empire,” that was used by the United States to wage ”the genocidal Afghanistan war.”
“Obama already admitted that his promise to withdraw US soldiers from Afghanistan may be postponed … After the Nobel Prize, we would have to award him with the prize for ‘the best snake charmer’ that has ever existed.”

Can’t we all just get along? We’re confident that this is simply one of those unfortunate diplomatic mistranslations and what Castro really said was, “Obama is the best and a snake and a charmer.” Surely it was meant as a compliment.

C’mon, you two, kiss and make up. Let’s see that super secret South American socialist handshake. Awwww, that’s more like it.

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie seems to be good for at least one pithy quote a day. Tuesday’s quote was a classic about New Jersey’s Democrat Senator Frank Lautenberg, but could be applied just as well to damn near any politician.

frank-lautenberg

We don't care what Chris Christie says, we believe Frank Lautenberg has been dead since early 2004

The Hill reports Christie’s bon mot (we’re not sure that it really qualifies as a bon mot, but we like saying the words bon mot):

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) is not particularly fond of Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-N.J.), saying in a recent interview that he is full of “hot air.”

The new governor said he did not appreciate Lautenberg’s criticism of his decision to cancel an $8.7 billion rail tunnel project that has been planned for more than a decade.

“All he knows how to do is blow hot air,” Christie said in a profile published in New York Magazine. “So I don’t really care what Frank Lautenberg has to say about much of anything.”

We’re actually surprised to learn that Frank Lautenberg is still alive. Despite Christie’s comment, we’re not convinced he is. We’re pretty sure New Jersey Democrats have been doing a Weekend At Bernie’s routine with Lautenberg since before he was elected.

Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and Ding Dongs are out. Arugula and balsamic vinaigrette are in.

fat-kid-salad-bar

Fat kid posing awkwardly with food he'll never eat in front of Michelle Obama's salad bar

Tonic.com has the details of the White House’s latest meddling in your life:

Michelle Obama paid a friendly visit to Riverside Elementary School in Little Havana, Fla. today. While there, she announced a plan to bring 6,000 salad bars into public schools across the country through the campaign “Let’s Move Salad Bars to Schools.” Riverside is the first school to enjoy an open bar — salad bar that is.

The First Lady met with students this afternoon and complimented them on the garden from which they’ve been harvesting tomatoes, eggplant and kale. She explained that it’s important to eat vegetables because they improve brain function and learning.

It’s certainly not easy to make kids think veggies are cool, but if anyone can, Mrs. O has a good shot.

Absolutely. Because Mrs. O is the coolest person in the world other than her husband and kids in Little Havana can’t wait to obey her every word.

“There are studies that show that kids who are eating their fruits and vegetables on a regular basis actually do better in school,” she told students. “Did you all know that? So that’s one of the reasons why all of this is important and why we need to make vegetables interesting to you guys … We have here this beautiful salad bar, because what we’ve also found is that if you take vegetables and you organize them in a pretty, delicious way, kids like you may actually eat them more — because it looks kind of cool, doesn’t it?,” she said, according to the White House.

Seriously? Have you seen the size of the First Lady’s ass? A few more salads couldn’t hurt that situation. And we’re pretty confident that the only thing bigger than the woman’s ass is her ego.

Don’t look now, Michelle, but if you organized some Ding Dongs and Cheetos in a pretty, delicious way right next to those vegetables, there’d still be a big pile of vegetables left at the end of the day.

We’ve told this story before, but it’s worth repeating. Mrs Editor teaches at a public school. Every day the cafeteria ladies load up the kids’ plates with free, healthy food. The kids immediately walk over to the trash cans and dump it. Before the lunch period is over, the cans are overflowing with that free, healthy food.

But, of course, Mrs Editor’s school doesn’t have a fancy, government-supplied salad bar.

Surely, that’ll make the kids want arugula.

If anyone would know about pain in the ass-ish regions, it would be Barney Frank. If you know what we mean.

barney-frank

We will not lower ourselves to put some mean-spirited, immature caption on this photo of Barney Frank. But don't let that stop you.

CNSnews.com has the painful particulars:

House Financial Services Chairman Barney Frank (D.-Mass.) predicts that serving on the Appropriations Committee in the incoming Republican-majority House of Representatives will be a “great pain in the ass.”

“Fascinating fact, apparently for the first time in anybody’s memory, members of Congress have declined seats on the Appropriations Committee,” Frank said. ”Republican members have said, ‘I don’t want to be on the Appropriations Committee.’ The Appropriations Committee, which has been a great plum, is now going to be a great pain in the ass because you’re going to be expected to come up with cuts in things that are very popular, et cetera.”

Barney Frank, pain in the ass. You know, some days this job is like shooting fish in a barrel. If we actually made any money at this we’d almost feel compelled to give it back.

The fact that John McCain’s idiot daughter thinks she’s qualified to be a political strategist is surprising enough. But even more surprising is the fact that she wants to be a Republican strategist.

meghan-mccain

And when Meghan finally lands a client, she'll have three boobs

Politico.com has details of the daughter’s delusion:

Speaking at the Miami Book Fair International to promote her book, “Dirty Sexy Politics,” the daughter of Sen. John McCain expressed an interest in working as a Republican “strategist.”

“I’ve already had people interested in me working, which is unbelievably flattering,” McCain said. “I want to go out and do it all over again with somebody else — I want to go get a Republican elected. I want to kick Obama’s ass the next election and get a Republican elected.”

Three comments, Meghan, honey:

One, we’re pretty sure the people who want you to work as a Republican strategist are all Democrats.

Two, If you’re going to kick an Obama’s ass, go for Michelle’s. It’s a much bigger target.

And three, when a candidate says he’s “interested in working with you,” it really means, “I wonder if she’ll let me touch her boobs.”

Fear not, citizens. The great and powerful Obama has heard your lamentations over unwanted molestation at the hands of government workers who get paid by the hour.

reggie-love

Reggie Love gets in position to demonstrate what the TSA uproar is all about

Unfortunately, he isn’t prepared to do a damn thing about it.

For reporting that is just as fair as it is balanced we defer to Fox News:

President Barack Obama has asked security officials whether there’s a less intrusive way to screen U.S. airline passengers than the pat-downs and body scans causing a holiday-season uproar.

For now, they’ve told him there isn’t one, the president said Saturday in response to a question at the NATO summit in Lisbon.

“I understand people’s frustrations,” Obama said, while acknowledging that he’s never had to undergo the stepped-up screening methods.

Passengers at some U.S. airports must pass through full-body scanners that produce a virtually naked image. If travelers refuse, they can be forced to undergo time-consuming fingertip examinations, including of clothed genital areas and breasts, by inspectors of the same sex as the passenger.

You’d think that a man who has worked so tirelessly to take over Wall Street, car companies and our bodies might be able to exercise some level of control over an organization that ultimately answers to him. Guess not.

Of course, there is always the possibility that Obama really doesn’t feel our pain. Maybe, just maybe, he doesn’t understand it at all. Perhaps he even wonders what all the uproar is about.

After all the TSA is only providing – for free – a service that Reggie Love has to be paid $102,000.00 a year to perform.

Dan Rather calls Katie Couric a whore

by editor on November 26, 2010

We’re not sure how this old story slipped by everyone, but it did. Dan Rather called Katie Couric a whore. We’re sure you’ll agree that there’s no other way to interpret the wizened old newsman’s words.

katie-couric

Whore Katie Couric doing a whore dance

The Media Research Center has the details:

Speaking of sexism, on the June 11, 2007 Morning Joe, Rather attacked Katie Couric, his successor at the CBS Evening News, this way: “The mistake was to try to bring the ‘Today’ show ethos to the evening news and to dumb it down, tart it up in hopes of attracting a younger audience.”

Tart it up? That didn’t sound very nice to us, so we checked the definition of “tart” at Princeton.edu’s online dictionary:

Tart: prostitute, a woman who engages in sexual intercourse for money

Now in interest of full disclosure, the second definition of tart is “a small open pie with a fruit filling.” But we doubt that that’s what Dan Rather meant.

No, Rather clearly called Katie Couric a whore, a prostitute, a harlot, a hooker, a fallen woman, a slut, a strumpet, a tramp, a working girl, a streetwalker, a lady of the evening news, if you will.

Damn. First time we’ve ever agreed with Dan Rather on anything.

With stations like MSNBC under their belt and liberals such as Matt Lauer and Keith Olbermann hosting programs, NBC is clearly disconnected with the average American. Another clear sign of their mismanagement: naming Sharif El-Gamal, developer of the Ground Zero Mosque, one of their “People of the Year.”

In an interview set to air on Thanksgiving Day, Matt Lauer sat down with El-Gamal and discussed the “Park 51 Project.” El-Gamal, who was apparently pleased to be named one of NBC’s people of the year, seemed very comfortable answering questions. The excerpt released so far shows that Mr. Lauer gave El-Gamal a decidedly softball interview.

No comment necessary on this one. None. Except that we hate the media.
