“[The Cornell University Program Board] is excited to present An Evening with Keith Olbermann ’79 on March 29th at 6:00 PM in Bailey Hall! Olbermann needs no introduction, but in case you’re unaware, he is a writer and political commentator who until recently hosted the nightly program Countdown...

MSNBC is replacing Keith Olbermann in the 8 p.m. slot with Lawrence O’Donnell, who only recently moved to the...

This photo montage from National Review Online perfectly reflects what I have been writing about all weekend regarding the lie that Sarah Palin, the Tea Parties or right-wing “vitriol” caused Jared Loughner to shoot and kill dozens of people in Tucson:

The shooting of Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and the killing of several people by gunman Jared Loughner in Arizona yesterday has revealed two sicknesses.

The first and most serious is the sickness living in Loughner’s head.  Evidence in the form of farewell videos, internet postings, and the recollections of people who knew him...

There is a lot which could be said about Joe Scarborough’s very personal and demeaning screed against Sarah Palin, but I’ll rest on this response:

“You are the Alan Colmes of MSNBC, and I mean no offense to Alan Colmes.”

On second thought, maybe I just insulted Alan Colmes.  Sorry.

Update: Must read.  The...

Via Howard Kurtz (who seems to me to be much more relaxed in his writing and worth reading since he left WaPo), comes a tale of infighting at NBC and MSNBC over Keith Olbermann’s politicial contributions and personality:

From the moment Olbermann was found to have donated money to three Democratic candidates,...

Well, that was quick. 

Keith Olbermann will return to MSNBC primetime tomorrow night, after a long weekend off the air, most of which time he would have been off the air regardless.

If Olbermann’s violation of MSNBC’s rules or policies was significant enough to warrant an indefinite suspension without pay, one would...

If Alan Grayson and Al Franken could do it, why not Keith?  Now that he is suspended indefinitely without pay by MSNBC for failing to disclose his campaign contributions to Democrats, Olbermann can become part of the team, instead of just watching from the bleachers.

What other Democrat could give a speech...

Once again I have a seemingly unsolvable dilemma.  If “the enemy of my enemy is my friend,” which one of these guys has to be my friend?

Well, at least it must have felt that way is you were a Democrat who just two years ago was being told that you were a permanent majority.

I’m not buying all the phony expressions of outrage from left-bloggers and pundits over the Gawker article about Christine O’Donnell.

From the moment she won the primary, O’Donnell was sexualized by the left with the excuse being O’Donnell’s 1996 video regarding masturbation.  That 14-year old tape has been the focus of jokes and...

MSNBC has given up any pretense of being a news organization, and is staking out an explicitly left-wing political persona as part of a new marketing campaign under the slogan, “Lean Forward.”

As reported by The New York Times:

Christine O’Donnell’s nomination is HISTORIC because if she wins, she will be the first female Senator from Delaware. Ever.

This is big and HISTORIC.  Which should guarantee overwhelmingly favorable mainstream media coverage.  Because we are not allowed to be against HISTORIC candidates, particularly one who will break the glass ceiling.

Obama was interviewed by Brian Williams yesterday.  Once again, Obama exhibited the sort of disdain towards a substantial portion of the population as he did in his bitter clinger comments back in 2008.

You will remember that at a private cocktail party in April 2008 in San Francisco, Obama made the...
