Winning the Future or WTF Palin remarks on SOTU Speech

January 26, 2011 Politisite 0

Former Alaska GOP Gov. Sarah Palin said Wednesday night that President Barack Obama’s call for “winning the future” during his State of the Union address is best framed by the acronym it shares with a much different phrase — “wtf.” “That was a tough speech to sit through and try to stomach,” Palin said during an interview with Fox News’s Greta Van Susteren. “His theme last night was wtf, winning […]

October 21, 2010 Politisite 0

Editors Note:  Congratulations for Hiring Juan Williams Full Time.  That is Fair and Balanced.  While I don’t agree with Juan on many issues, I have always enjoyed seeing him taking a stand on the mostly conservative Fox News.  He is an insightful commentator.  National Public Radio has shown it’s true colors that it would rather be politically correct during donor week then allow its contributors to share an honest view.

Obama Hates Us, He Really Hates Us (and Fox News!)

September 28, 2010 Politisite 0

So President Obama was just interviewed in Rolling Stone magazine, that thinning pamphlet for our country’s dwindling supply of pony-tailed pensioners. (AARP skews younger.) When asked about Fox News, this is what our Commander-in-chief had to say. I think Fox … is part of the tradition that has a very clear, undeniable point of view. It’s a point of view that I disagree with. It’s a point of view that […]

So much for 'conversation' on race

July 21, 2010 Politisite 0

The election of Barack Obama, America’s first black president, was supposed to be a sign of our national maturity, a chance to transform the charged, stilted “national conversation” about race into a smarter and more authentic dialogue, led by a president who was also one of the nation’s subtlest thinkers and writers on the topic. Instead, the conversation just got dumber. The America of 2010 is dominated by racial images […]

June 13, 2010 Politisite 0

This might upset some of the Fox News-ophobes within DC media circles, the so-called purists that tend to look down on the highly rated cable news outlet. As Fox News is purportedly competing with Bloomberg for that front-row seat once occupied by the former dean of the White House press corps and Hearst Newspaper columnist Helen Thomas, Chris Wallace, the host of “Fox News Sunday,” suggested there would be some […]

MSNBC Olbermann Absurd Defense Of Banning Dissenting Voices From Show

May 6, 2010 Politisite 0

Looks like thin-skinned Keith Olbermann is getting defensive about his policy of prohibiting any guests on his show who disagree with him.  An MSNBC Countdown promo features Olbermann making an absurd non sequitur of an argument in seeking to justify his echo-chamber approach. Keith claims he asks questions “to find out if I’m wildly incorrect” about something, ignoring the obvious: he’s unlikely to find out if he’s wrong if he […]
