Well, at least she can’t claim it was a liberal news bias this time: Fox News contributor Sarah Palin took to Facebook today to kvetch about being bumped from the interviews (plural?) she was slated to give tonight about her BFF, John McCain. Whose birthday it is, apparently.
Julia Allison is not dead. But you could be forgiven for thinking so, since everyone talks about her in the past tense.
“Julia represented the industrialization of self-promotion,” said Jason Tanz, who profiled Ms. Allison for the cover of Wired’s August 2008 issue. “People were going to start using the Internet as a personal Read More
Joe Ricketts, the billionaire founder of New York media darling DNAinfo, commissioned plans for a $10 M. media campaign against President Obama’s re-election, according to a report in Read More
There may be worse things in life than sitting through a 90-minute movie about Sarah Palin. At the moment, I just can’t think of any.
For a shrill, obnoxious loudmouth spouting more semantic goofs in public than Mrs. Malaprop, she has mangled more facts, misquoted more people and been on the wrong side of so many things that she’s ready for a cinematic firing squad. And for a veteran documentary filmmaker with the credits of British director Nick Broomfield, I expected Sarah Palin—You Betcha! to be a hair-raising exposé. But he didn’t have to put in much overtime. All he had to do was go to Wasilla, Alaska, open his eyes and ears, and keep his cameras rolling. As her family, friends and enemies—including just about everybody she has ever worked with as mayor, governor and vice presidential nominee-—prove in every scene, Sarah Palin defines self-parody.
“I think what he did was illegal and unconstitutional.”
That was Jerry Nadler, the liberal Democratic congressman, in an interview this weekend, referring to President Obama and the military intervention in Libya.
Those concerns were also raised on a conference call Saturday, where other liberals, like Rep. Dennis Kucinich of Ohio, raised constitutional questions about Read More
The new anti-bullying message from the NOH8 Campaign highlights an apparent standoff between Arizona Senator John McCain and his wife Cindy McCain.
In the video message pushing for repeal of the military’s long-standing “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy, Cindy McCain pushes for the ban to be lifted–a matter currently under consideration for Read More
Michael Bloomberg released a new ad urging Congress to close the gun show loophole, noting it’s how the Columbine shooters obtained their weapons.
The ad also features footage of one Republican and one Democrat who had previously expressed closing the loophole: John McCain and Barack Obama.
Earlier, Bloomberg sent Obama a letter urging Read More
It’s halftime at the health care summit, and pundits like Matt Drudge are already declaring how utterly boring it is to watch the nation’s leaders bicker about a health care bill.
But there was this!
And now, inevitably–regardless of whatever ideas are bandied about–President Obama telling John McCain that they’re “not campaigning anymore” Read More
Time named Ben Bernanke—”overlord of the economy” and the “most powerful nerd on the planet“—its Person of the Year this morning, but apparently that doesn’t guarantee him any votes toward another term.
John McCain said this afternoon that he’ll probably vote against Mr. Bernanke’s confirmation, joining a slew of Republican Read More
These days, there are three John McCains.
One is the pride-driven defeated presidential candidate who hopes Americans will compare him to President Obama and realize the error of their ways. Another is a true-believer neoconservative, dedicated to using his Senate perch to push for aggressive military efforts in Afghanistan, Iraq and elsewhere. And then there’s Read More
