#NCPOL: Toxic liberals, media still obsessing over “unconfirmed” mold in #NCGOV bathrooms

Posted by: ST on October 17, 2013 at 8:22 pm » 5 Comments

Remember over the weekend when I wrote about a ridiculous piece written by the AP on the “controversy” surrounding a $230,000 estimate for a renovation of six bathrooms in the NC Governor’s mansion?  For a refresher, here’s a summary of what they wrote – as translated by yours truly: In spite of the fact that […]

Dum dum alert: MSNBC host asks, “Do you hate #Obamacare more than you love your country?”

Posted by: ST on October 15, 2013 at 6:57 pm » 6 Comments

Because there’s no way on EARTH you could LOVE your country as much as you despise Obamacare, right?  Via WaPo’s Erik Wemple: MSNBC host Thomas Roberts had done his homework in advance of his interview with Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.). In a chat moments ago on MSNBC’s air, Roberts welcomed Blackburn for a discussion of the […]


#NCPol silly season: AP wonders if mold at #NCGov mansion bathrooms is “toxic”

Posted by: ST on October 13, 2013 at 12:45 pm » 3 Comments

Background: Over the weekend, a minor dust-up erupted when it was reported by left wing partisan media outlets that NC Governor Pat McCrory (R) was “spending $230,000 on renovation” on the 1800-s era estate, including plans to add marble counter tops. At a time when state government is scaling back spending on public assistance programs, […]


About that NBC/WSJ poll that panicked Republicans

Posted by: Phineas on October 11, 2013 at 10:01 am » 5 Comments

**Posted by Phineas You know, the one that showed Republicans getting killed over the government shutdown? Turns out there was a…. slight bias in the sample: @texasbryanp In today’s NBC/WSJ poll, 1 in 5 respondents work for govt. Only 8% of general pop works for govt. See last page. — Tampa (@S1CT) October 11, 2013 […]


SHOCK: WH press corps ask ZERO questions about #Obamacare at #Obama presser

Posted by: ST on October 8, 2013 at 6:37 pm » 4 Comments

Not one. Zilch. Nada.  Absolutely pathetic, especially when you consider the Obamacare roll-out is what central issue is to the shutdown standoff between the GOP and Democrats.  Via Politico (hat tip): President Barack Obama sustained an hour-long press conference today without a single question about his signature healthcare law and the glitches that continue to plague […]

**Posted by Phineas Don’t believe the press is in the tank for Obama and Obamacare? Well, check this out. Yesterday evening, Jon Gabriel re-tweeted a link from National Review’s Charles Cooke to the Associated Press web site, which was running an article on the serious problems experienced by those using the Obamacare exchanges, which were only in […]


#NCPOL: A history lesson for @NationalJournal on #NCGA “political party domination”

Posted by: ST on September 25, 2013 at 10:42 am » 1 Comment

Yesterday, I got wind of yet another hit piece on NC’s GOP-dominated General Assembly (our state legislature) from a national left wing “news” outlet, this time the National Journal.  The cover of the magazine, was intentionally provocative: HIT THE PANIC BUTTON! The cover screams. The state is firmly in the hands of Rethuglicans and NO […]


Navy Yard shooting: an AR-15 *was* used there. Updated.

Posted by: Phineas on September 18, 2013 at 1:28 pm » 5 Comments

**Posted by Phineas All too predictably, gun control advocates raced to take advantage of the atrocity of yesterdays’s mass shooting at the Navy Yard to press their case, this time by decrying the use of an AR-15 in the killings, the semi-automatic rifle having become the fear-object of choice for people who hate the Second […]
