  • THE HILL: Liberals trying to draft Keith Olbermann for Joe Lieberman's Senate seat

    The Hill ^ | 1-24-11 | Sean J. Miller
    Liberals want Keith Olbermann to run for retiring Connecticut Sen. Joe Lieberman's (I-Conn.) seat. The ploy to coax the former MSNBC host into the Democratic Senate primary was hatched by activists attending a conference in Pennsylvania over the weekend. Facebook and Twitter pages are already active and a website is expected to go up in the coming days. "We’re using our full set of campaign tools but they won’t go active until we get a little downtime while we’re in D.C.," a blogger by the name of Stranded Wind wrote on the liberal website Daily Kos

    How is that civility holding up? Daily Kos, the disgraced liberal website, is angry over House Republicans voting to repeal ObamaCare. So much so that they are doing away with supposed "civility" and are instead aiming to attack Republicans. In this mass forwarded email, obtained by Pundit Press, Daily Kos (and those affiliated with it) lays out its plan to attack Republicans. Daily Kos is calling the plan "Repeal This." Here is the email in its entirety below (username obscured to preserve anonymity):

Last time, we documented the DUbble Standard of DUmmieland, where William Pitt the Hypocrite, in typical high DUdgeon, has denounced the rhetoric of the Right, but who himself has engaged in violent rhetoric against (at least) George W.

    Searching For Answers: From New York newspaper columnists to an Illinois senator, the liberal left is blaming the Tea Party and conservative stars for the shooting of an Arizona congresswoman. How about blaming the communist and Nazi-loving shooter? It didn't take long for New York Times columnist Paul Krugman to blame the Tea Party and Sarah Palin for the shooting outside a Tucson supermarket that seriously injured Congresswoman Gabriel Giffords and left six others, including a 9-year-old, dead. Writing Saturday, as the shooting was still fresh and little was known of the shooter or the circumstances, Krugman spoke of a...

    The facts are simple. Jared Loughner was a lunatic. *snip* Given the lack of connection between Palin’s map and the shooter’s actions, together with the presence of identical rhetoric from the left, the talk today is, of course, about how it’s all Sarah Palin’s fault. And the left is exploiting this shooting to the hilt — facts be damned

    Every time some lunatic lefty goes on a shooting rampage they have this predictable tactic of trying to drop the gun in a rightwinger’s lap. You’re the mentally deranged people, remember? The people who care more about cats and dogs than people. The ones who care more about illegal aliens than Americans. More about murderers on death row than the victims in their wake. HillBuzz has the screenshots. The all-damning Markos Moulitsas to hell screenshots as it appears the shooter was one of his diarists encouraged by his dangerous and violent eliminationist rhetoric inciting the attempted murder of Gifford.

    the wake of the attempted assassination of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.) and the shooting of more than 20 others in Tucson today, fellow Arizona Democrat Rep. Raul Grijalva denounced a political environment poisoned by "anger, hatred, and division." In a phone interview with Mother Jones, Grijalva called the assault "horrible and unbelievable and shocking….It's hard to explain and really difficult to comprehend." Grijalva—who was also the recent target of violent threats—went on to blame the polarized political climate for creating an atmosphere that fueled violence: We never entered [politics] believing that we were taking our lives in our hands...we're feeding...

The moment he started talking, he oozed self-righteousness and pomposity. He kept alluding to "vitriol"--a code word the Progs use to talk about talk radio and conservatives.

    The London Telegraph ^ | January 8, 2011
    The father of shot American congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords has said that her political stance made her many enemies. Miss Giffords, a Democrat congresswoman, was shot in the head during a public meeting in Tucson, Arizona. A lone gunman, described by witnesses as being a white man in his late teens or early twenties, fired into a crowd gathered for a "Congress in your Corner" event outside a supermarket. Her father Spencer Giffords, 75, wept when asked if his 40-year-old daughter had any enemies. "Yeah," he told The New York Post. "The whole tea party." Miss Giffords had been named in...

    Liberal blogger and founder of the Daily Kos, Markos Moulitsas, tweeted “Mission Accomplished, Sarah Palin” after the horrific shooting at a grocery in Tuscon, Arizona that left Democratic Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords in critical condition, took the lives of 6 people, and left 12 others injured. Moulitsas, who goes by the twitter handle @markos, politicized the situation placing the blame on Sarah Palin, the lowest level one could possibly hit. The following is a screen shot of his “Mission Accomplished, Sarah Palin” tweet. Click the image to enlarge.

    Today, House Representative Gabrielle Giffords of Arizona was shot in the head while holding a public event in Tucson, Arizona. Another eleven were also shot; Giffords was reportedly shot at "point blank range." Giffords and those shot were then rushed to the hospital. In the shot term, with few answers out there, the major question arises: who shot Representative Giffords and why? One startling possibility: an angry Daily Kos reader named "BoyBlue" may be behind the shooting. In a diary written just two days ago, BoyBlue wrote a diary exclaiming that Rep. Giffords was "DEAD to me!" The headline was...

    Does watching Fox News rot your brain? According to a report released last month by at the University of Maryland, "Misinformation and the 2010 Election," the more people watch Fox News, the more they are "misinformed." The allegation rapidly became a favorite topic for leading mainstream news outlets including The New York Times, U.S. News and World Report, CBS News, Slate, The Atlantic. Even major newspapers in Canada and the U.K. covered the report. Of course, left-wing websites -- the Talking Point Memo, Media Matters, and the Daily Kos -- reveled in the findings. The report asserted that Fox...

    On page A3 of today’s Washington Post: Another liberal movement leader, Daily Kos blog founder Markos Moulitsas, said he “long ago” cut off contact with the White House. “It’s clear that they want to double down on their capitulation strategy,” he said in an e-mail. Those words are written in English, but I cannot seem to get them to make sense in that order. The staff of the leader of the free world, with the world’s most powerful bully pulpit, in service of a president whose persuasive and oratorical abilities are endlessly touted, find themselves needing the assistance of the...

    In the New York Daily News on Wednesday, S.E. Cupp theorized "The reason Palin has become such a lightening [sic] rod, a kingmaker and a punching bag, a celebrity and a power player, is simple. It's because she's so gosh darn happy.For her fans, like the ones I had the pleasure of meeting in Chicago, she's refreshingly upbeat and resilient, the bubbly friend from childhood who was always great at cheering you up and cheerleading you on. But for her detractors, nothing raises the ire of cynical liberals more than a happy-go-lucky, totally unburdened, freethinking and self-assured conservative woman who...

And for y’all a bit lower on the economic scale, enjoy your Pabst Blue Ribbon, or whatever shitty ass beer you favor. Whatever the case, and whatever your economic station, know this… You need to drink up. And quickly. And heavily. Because your time is limited. Real damned limited. So party while you can, but mind the increasingly loud clock ticking away in the corners of your consciousness. The...
