Obama finds a way to be ignored by Fox News – Leave the country

It is well documented how the “Fair &  Balanced” Fox News leaves no stone unturned in its efforts to rip Barack Obama. Hardly a day goes by without some headline or other tearing apart another aspect of the administration. Last week they even commissioned a survey to ask voters whether Obama ordering the raid on Bin Laden was a … Continue reading

Trump to Obama: Mine’s longer

What with the goings on over the weekend in Abbottabad a few news items got lost in the shuffle. (BTW, wouldn’t it be rich if they had a sister city named Costellobad?) One item was Donald Trump’s reaction to the release of Obama’s long form birth certificate, something he had been urging for weeks. The Donald has … Continue reading

According to Fox News, Bush captures bin Laden

As most Americans celebrated the death of Osama bin Laden today I wondered how the good folks at Fox & Friends would handle this latest news bombshell. After all now that Public Enemy #1 (Osama) had been vanquished, but by their Public Enemy #2 (Obama), would they be able to rejoice? I’m pleased to report that … Continue reading

You are what you read

The following was passed along to me by a reader from the great state of Ohio. Thanks Rod.    1. The Wall Street Journal is read by the people who run the country.   2. The Washington Post is read by people who think they run the country.   3. The New York Times is … Continue reading

My life in the killing streets, or further proof that Glenn Beck is an idiot

Recently Glenn Beck went on the air and ripped my hometown of Philadelphia. He referred to the area around Independence Hall as “the killing streets” and the city as a whole as a “place you do not want to be.” He summed up his argument by saying “Philly sucks”, a cry that is usually only … Continue reading

Should we be surprised by the shooting in Arizona?

Many of us are stunned by the attempted assassination of a Congresswoman in Arizona, but should we be? The intended victim, Gabrielle Giffords (D-AZ), had already spoken last year about being on Sarah Palin’s infamous “hit list.” You may recall, this list showed 20 members of Congress that Palin wanted to be removed. It included  a map of the … Continue reading

Little Delaware finally gets noticed

Delaware accomplished something yesterday that it hasn’t done since it was the first state to ratify the Constitution in 1787; it got mentioned in the news. Since then it’s been a long dry spell for media coverage (other than when a favorite son named Joe Biden, who was primarily known for his bloviating in Congress, was … Continue reading

Will the Know Nothings rise again?

In the mid-1850′s, a political party called the “Know Nothings” grew in America. They were also known as the American Party and the Republican American Party. They were fiercely anti-immigration, particularly against the unwashed masses of Catholics arriving on our shores from Germany and Ireland.  They felt that these new groups would owe fealty to the Pope. They … Continue reading

Obama appears more Reaganesque every day

The good folks at Fox News and the right-wing blogosphere were cackling with glee the other day over Barrack Obama’s latest poll ratings. It appears that at his 800th day in office he dropped below 50%, not a good sign. Fox News knows that their regular viewers will take them at face value and not look behind … Continue reading

No news is faux (Fox) news

I was toodling around the Fox News web site the other day when I came across this headline: “Dem Derided for Laughing at Pledge of Allegiance”. Hmm, I thought. What could this be? Who is this Dem who would dare mock the Pledge of Allegiance? Does he truly hate this country and all it stands for and who, … Continue reading
