Visual Vilification: A Tale of Two Hillarys

In the media’s obsession with all things Hillary, no sooner did NBC and CNN announce biopics on the former Secretary of State than the RNC denounced those films as biased infomercials. Republicans are terrified of running against someone with her bona fides and popularity. Cue the negative coverage, as evidenced by the photographs of Mrs. Clinton and RNC Chair, Reince Priebus, in the FOX News’ article, Republicans...

Anthony Weiner and Larry Summers Make My Head Ache

You really have to ask yourself what it takes to get some of these guys off the stage.  Anthony Weiner disgraced himself, losing his Congressional seat by sexting lewd pictures of his…er, ‘member’ over the Twitter-verse, having phone sex with multiple women and now, rather than hanging his head and keeping quiet, he is not only running for Mayor of New York City, he is...

A Sycophantic Press Has Itself to Blame for Obama’s AP Scandal

The Obama/Holder AP scandal has produced strange bedfellows.  The DoJ’s seizing of Associated Press reporters’ phone records along with AG Eric Holder’s attempts to prosecute senior FOX correspondent, James Rosen as a “co-conspirator” for doing his job has sent a chill down the collective spines of both the liberal and conservative press.   At long last, the left and the right agree on something. Karen Tumulty...

Rabid on Benghazi, IRS Scandal and the Lessons of Violence on Finlay & Smart Talk

Tonight, John Smart and I tackle the pros and cons of Republicans’ rabid attempts to discredit Hillary Clinton in advance of 2016.  Interesting how she offered herself up, taking responsibility for State Department failures on Benghazi, prior to the election last year and Rep. Issa. Sen. Lindsay Graham and company would have none of it.  Now of course, the circus has begun anew for reasons...

Why President Obama’s Sexist Remark about Kamala Harris Matters

We live in a society attracted, even addicted, to pretty packaging.  That is unlikely to change.  Notwithstanding those with a seeming compulsion to praise or deride others’ appearance, our leaders and elected officials need to lead by example, not use their bully pulpits to further stereotyped perceptions.  At a California fundraiser last week, President Obama offered up the following description of California Attorney General Kamala...

Hillary Clinton’s Benghazi Testimony and the Men Who Fear Her

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton gave 5-1/2 hours of patient and thorough testimony before the Senate and House yesterday regarding the events surrounding the tragic deaths of four Americans in Benghazi.    Not surprisingly, Wesley Pruden of The Washington Times published a smear piece entitled “Hillary’s Last Hurrah.”  He offered a photograph of the one moment she became frustrated with Republican Senator Johnson of Wisconsin, who...

Big Media and the Herd Mentality of Party Politics Create More Crises Than They Solve

Salon’s David Sirota today offered an article instructing Progressives to “check their optimism” when it comes to President Obama’s inauguration speech and what it might bode for his second term.  He stated that although Obama strung “together the most tried, true and poll-tested applause lines,” Sirota pointed out that no sentence “was as appropriate yet also dissonant as President Obama’s assertion that America should not...
