HuffPo unhinged

Posted by: ST on September 12, 2008 at 11:14 pm » 15 Comments

I think it’s safe to say that HuffPo’s become just as unhinged as most of the rest of the leftosphere on the issue of the VP candidacy Gov. Sarah Palin. That said, this particular blogger (who is also a famous author, apparently) was complimentary of the Governor on one level: I realized three things tonight. […]

 

Obama’s position on equal pay for women: Just words?

Posted by: ST on September 12, 2008 at 10:52 pm » 1 Comment

Well … yep: On average, Obama’s female staffers earn just 83 cents for every dollar his male staffers make. This figure certainly exceeds the 77-cent threshold that Obama’s campaign website condemns. However, 83 cents do not equal $1. In spite of this 17-cent gap between Obama’s rhetoric and reality, he chose to chide GOP presidential […]

Hey, Obama – here’s the main reason why McCain can’t send a damn email

Posted by: ST on September 12, 2008 at 7:00 pm » 16 Comments

Barack Obama, in an effort at getting more “aggressive” against John McCain, is running an ad accusing McCain of being so “yesterday” because, among other things, he doesn’t know much about computers and relies on aides to send his emails for him: After a day of joint appearances and a respite from election ad wars […]

Friday open thread

If you’re in the Houston area, you are in my thoughts and prayers right now as Hurricane Ike prepares to make landfall. Please be safe (hopefully, you’re already in a safe area). I see gas prices have gone way up today in light of the news about Ike. A gas station close by where I […]

 

USA Today: Gov. Palin is not a ‘religious wacko’ and works well with Democrats

Posted by: ST on September 12, 2008 at 11:18 am » 3 Comments

The USA Today does the heavy lifting that the WaPo, NYT, and other big media news outlets refuse to do on Gov. Palin regarding her religious views and how she governs: ANCHORAGE — Weeks after taking office as Alaska’s governor in December 2006, Sarah Palin vetoed a bill that sought to ban benefits for the […]

 

WaPo watch: Still getting Gov. Palin’s positions wrong

Posted by: ST on September 12, 2008 at 8:48 am » 5 Comments

In a page 1 story on Gov. Palin, the WaPo headline reads: “Palin Links Iraq to 9/11, A View Discarded by Bush.” Unfortuntely for them, they got it wrong – again – as Bill Kristol points out here.  Not only that, but in an update to that post, John McCormack writes that the WaPo tried […]
