The Under the “Bellwether” Press

Posted by Ryan on November 8, 2005

Rush had a great take on the media wanting, needing, desperately wanting to, in the immortal words of Ronald the Great, “believe so much that isn’t so.” They wanted to believe the forged Bush National Guard memo. They wanted to believe that lying vet about war atrocities. They wanted/still want to believe Joe Wilson. Just to name a few.
On Planet Lib anything is possible…

  • 2 + 2 = 3…??… Yippie, everybody’s right! HUG!
  • Oh, yeah, Reagan and Tip O’Neill were the best of buds, having drinks after work, chumming it up, hobnobbing every weekend, giving each other policy advice and the occasional high-five!
  • The Cold War was ending anyway–no serious threat from our former Soviet masters!
  • New Jersey’s a bellwether state.

(Sorry, I have a feeling that last one may be pushing it)

National Bellwether?

Posted by Sal on November 8, 2005

According to the New York Times, “In a swing state often considered a national bellwether, voters leaving polling stations today explained their choices in terms of issues that go beyond local concerns, like embryonic stem cell research, the Iraq war and gay marriage.”

A national bellwether????!! That’s why NJ currently has a Democratic governor, two Democratic Senators, and a Democrat-controlled legislature, yet the Republican party currently enjoys national dominance.

MSM Will Turn on McCain

Posted by Mike on November 8, 2005

If he runs for President against She Who Must Not Be Named that is. This is the McCain the media will portray if he wins the Republican nomination for President in 2008.

John McCain is not the best hope for the GOP in 2008. In addition to trampling the First Amendment, hedging on tax cuts, and his willingness to humor the likes of Dick Durbin on “torture”, McCain does indeed appear to have an anger management problem. The MSM will not hesitate to show McCain’s nasty side if he is standing in the way of their Evita.

This will not necessarily prevent McCain from defeating Lady MacBeth, but he will have a much tougher time than most of the other names being thrown around.

GOP Fighting Back

Posted by Sal on November 8, 2005

Drudge has posted that Frist and Hastert will, this afternoon, launch an investigation into the leak to the Washington Post on the “Black Sites” where Al-Qaeda terrorists are being held.

It’s about time that the GOP started making the leaking of real classified info an issue. If the MSM and the Democrats want to make the supposed leak of a CIA employee who is no longer covert an issue, than the GOP needs to fight back and look at real intelligence leaks.

After looking at this one, they should focus their investigations on Pat Leahy and Jay Rockefeller.

E-Mail Time Capsule

Posted by Sal on November 8, 2005

Forbes Magazine has created an Email time capsule. From now until November 30, you can set a message to email yourself in 1, 3, 5, 10, and 20 years (assuming you have the same email address).

Just thought it was kind of a neat idea. Thanks to my wife for alerting me to this.

Praying for a Media Flip Flop

Posted by Mike on November 8, 2005

This is not what the media will be saying tomorrow if Republicans go 2 for 3 today. However, they will repeat it endlessly if the Democrats go 2 for 3 today. Regardless, the off-off year elections are not predictors of the following off-year elections. Governors Warner and McGreevey did wonders for the Democrats in 2002. Nevertheless, don’t let us down Virginia!

Riots spreading?

Posted by Sal on November 8, 2005

Reports of car burnings in Berlin and Brussels. And in France, they’ve instituted Curfews. I guess they think that the rioters they can’t control will respond to a curfew to stay indoors.
