On July 28, 2009, I posted about the obsession at Wonkette, a widely read liberal website, with attacking Trig Palin, Wonkette Goes After Trig Palin Again.  The author of the Wonkette article which was the focus of the 2009 post was Ken Layne, the co-owner of Wonkette after Gawker Media let Wonkette loose.

The KosKids must be experiencing cognitive dissonance, because the DailyKos last night took on an almost martial appearance:

I wonder if this is change they can believe in.

I have expressed my concerns with Public Policy Polling before.  PPP is a traditionally Democratic firm which now is the official pollster for DailKos, and has a tendency to put a heavy spin on its poll results.

Today PPP officially beclowned itself, releasing a poll which, among other things, pitted Charlie Sheen against,...

The New York Times had an article today about David Koch, focused on the opening of a cancer center in Boston donated by Koch, but also touching on the Think Progress and left-wing smear campaign against Koch.

Koch made an interesting comment regarding the “prank” call in which a left-wing blogger impersonated Koch to...

Ann Althouse has been observing the revolution in Madison (brought to you by PEU™) and correctly observes that the Wisconsin protesters are losing their grip on reality.

It’s not just the protesters.

The supporters of the Wisconsin protesters in the left-blogosphere also are losing their grip on reality.

Witness the BREAKING NEWS and SHOCKING story...

If you have noticed, I am very intolerant of cheap shots and snide comments directed at Sarah Palin, particularly when those cheap shots and snide comments come from conservative bloggers and Republican politicians.

Perhaps I react this way because when Palin Derangement Syndrome first struck this blog was not yet established, and...

Another Tucson Shooting False Narrative Goes Bad

There have been multiple false narratives involved in the Tucson shooting.

The first false narrative was that Sarah Palin, Tea Parties and conservatives were responsible, directly or indirectly, for the shooting.  That narrative has been thoroughly debunked in the past week, although writers such as Paul Krugman and political figures such as...

I posted yesterday about Eric Fuller, who blamed Sarah Palin and others for the Tucson shooting by Jared Loughner.

Now Fuller has been arrested for making a death threat against a local tea party leader:

Obama’s speech at the Tucson memorial was an opportunity thrust upon him, not one of choice.

But the tone of the speech was consistent in many ways with the Obama 2.0 we saw during the lame duck session when Obama struck a tax deal with Republicans.  Coming together to get things done...

Is there anything left of the left-blogosphere, mainstream media and Democratic political accusation that Jared Loughner was motivated by right-wing vitriol?
