    The Chamber of Commerce has a fascinating post up at its Chamberpost blog recounting a series of e-mails between its own blogger Brad Peck and Markos Moulitsas, founder of Daily Kos, the popular left-wing site. It began when Kos claimed in an April 30 post on his site that the Chamber was funding, via a group called Americans for Job Security, an ad attacking Arkansas Senate Democratic primary candidate Bill Halter, whom Kos is supporting. Peck e-mailed Kos to inform him that he was incorrect. The Chamber was in no way connected to

    Phil Donahue believes people should learn about Fox News's Glenn Beck by watching a video that was posted at the perilously liberal website Daily Kos. In a preview of an interview to be aired on the "Joy Behar Show" Friday, the host asked her guest, "What do you think of this upsurge of the Becks and the Limbaughs and Fox News?"

    Tea Party supporters should shut up and let President Obama destroy America if they know what’s good for them, a prominent leftist agitator says. On his TV show Glenn Beck highlighted recent remarks made by propagandist Markos Moulitsas, founder of the vile, hateful left-wing website, Daily Kos. (video not available; transcript here) Moulitsas said I mean, this is what the people voted for. And it’s one thing to oppose it on policy. It’s another thing to use the kind of exterminationist, eliminationist rhetoric that they are using in appealing to violence and that sort of thing. So many lies. Where...
  • AZ-Sen. 2010: John McCain leads J.D. Hayworth in new poll (Daily Kooks for McCain!) (BARF ALERT)

    WASHINGTON -- So far, J.D. Hayworth's campaign to beat Sen. John McCain for the Republican nomination for McCain's seat in Arizona is looking like little more than a nuisance. A new Research 2000 poll sponsored by Daily Kos, out Friday, showed McCain beating Hayworth easily, 52-37. Meanwhile, McCain ended the first quarter of 2010 with $4.5 million in the bank, after raising more than $2.2 million this year so far. Hayworth announced that he raised more than $1 million, but didn't say exactly how much. (And one of his top advisors, Arizona public relations mogul Jason Rose, recently quit because...

    If you ever thought we didn’t love you, we hope today proves you wrong, because we just read a piece over at Daily Kos for you. It was icky. We had to take a shower afterwards, with that stinky antibacterial soap to kill all the orange germs. Kos is a very nasty, rotten place, but we got a tip they were in full-on pants-wetting meltdown mode over “Motions to Recommit” and wanted to know what the fuss was about.

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette ^ | March 04, 2010 | James O'Toole
    The Pittsburgh 9.12 Project, a grass-roots conservative group, was forced to seek a new home after complaints about a North Hills church's decision to allow them to use their meeting room. The group, an affiliate of the movement promoted by Fox commentator Glenn Beck, had staged a series of gatherings in St. John Lutheran Church of Highland. The church's meeting room was also to have been the site of a similar conservative group, the Pittsburgh Tea Party movement, last weekend, but that session was canceled due to weather . . . The decision came after a blog post on the...

    Greg Pollowitz nails it exactly. Has anyone else noticed that this poll was commissioned by a guy who is writing a book called American Taliban about how American conservatives are just like jihadist killers? The dissonance is baffling. It would be like if someone had written, "I was talking to the little man who lives in my sugar bowl and he told me that Republicans believe in some crazy things!" and everyone seized on the last part as the news hook.

Have the Left abandoned their Liberal Basement Sanctuaries and thrown themselves into the Global Warming snow Drifts ? What is happening here ? New Jersey happened, then Virginia happened, then Ted K. surrendered his still warm seat ? Now Obama's Illinois Seat is definitely changing Colors.

    Fresh off liberals getting thumped in Virginia, New Jersey, and most recently Massachusetts, the left are now in a full-fledged panic, and they're doing all they can to quickly blur the obvious teachable moment: that the GOP can win by boldly going way to the right of the Democrats. The Daily Kos recently released an odd poll of Republican voters -- and now The Politico and other liberal organizations are trying to use the results to churn waters that are actually relatively calm. The GOP had better not bite.

    Poll of Republicans Met With Shock, Skepticism (Feb. 3) -- Most Republicans think Barack Obama is a socialist and Sarah Palin is more qualified than him to be president. Most either think Obama wasn't born in the U.S. or aren't sure. Nearly 40 percent want him impeached. Those are a few of the results in a Daily Kos poll that's shaking up the blogosphere. The liberal Web site commissioned Research 2000 to survey more than 2,000 self-identified Republicans last month. Site founder Markos Moulitsas -- the "Kos" in Daily Kos -- called the results "nothing short of startling." A few...

    Markos Moulitsas Zuniga, a Democratic strategist and founder of the left-wing blog “The Daily Kos,” told reporters Thursday that “comprehensive immigration reform” legislation sponsored by Rep. Luiz Gutierrez (D-Ill.) -- which would provide a “pathway to citizenship” for illegal aliens -- has a good shot at passage this year. But Moulitsas said that “teabaggers” and Republicans who “hate brown people” would try to push back against it. “I think the votes want to be there in the Senate -- I think the House is fairly solid -- I think the votes want to be there,” he said of an immigration...

    Since they don't want to acknowledge the real facts, progressives like to attack the grass roots tea party movement by calling them names. As Congress and the White House begin to move amnesty for illegal aliens higher up in their agenda, the founder of the Daily Kos, is waging a preemptive attack on the people who are most likely to oppose their action. Grass Roots patriots and Conservative Republicans.

    Here is video of Keith Olbermann talking with Markos Moulitsas - founder of the Daily Kos - last night about the Massachusetts Senate Race that is being held today (You can skip Olbermann's twisted lead-in attack on Brown and go to the 2:44 mark of the video). Moulitsas said it is "looking very bleak for Democrats" in the election. He said a huge Democrat turnout could turn this around, but that things "are bleak" right now. Olbermann complained of the "courseness" of the Brown Campaign. Moulitsas said Brown has run "under the radar" on a "regressive agenda." . . ....

    Kossack Mote Dai's discovery that "objective" analyst and MIT economist Jonathon Gruber has received a sole-source contracts with the Department of Health and Human Services since June 19, 2009 to consult on the “President’s health reform proposal" has gained some larger attention. Marcy reported that he has two contracts for a total of $392,600 to consult on the plan. The issue is that Gruber has consistently been referenced by the White House as an objective analyst in support of the bill--including the controversial excise tax--without disclosing his role as a contractor on the issue.

    National Review ^ | 12/17/2009 | Robert Costa
    Markos Moulitsas, the founder of Daily Kos, one of the Left’s leading blogs, is fuming. For months, he has been leading the charge on Obamacare, drumming up support amongst Democrats while keeping the Left’s many camps united behind one goal: passing a health-care bill. Now, with Senate majority leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) caving to one senator after another, Moulitsas sees his cause being destroyed by his own side. And he’s fighting back. In a post on his website, Moulitsas writes that if Reid’s bill is gutted of a public option, but still includes an individual mandate, then it should...

    This is how the 2007 amnesty bill died, you may recall. It wasn’t Republicans who killed it, it was Republicans plus big-labor Democrats plus a few pro-amnesty liberal Dems who thought the bill didn’t go far enough. Ultimately, the 60-vote needle was simply too narrow to be threaded. And now here we are again. From Kos’s Twitter feed: Insurance companies win. Time to kill this monstrosity coming out of the Senate.Remember, the overwhelming nutroots CW to this point has been that something must be passed. What, precisely, gets passed is important but ultimately secondary to the task of passing something...

    We were told today that the Left is making the rounds on various sites like HuffPo, Daily Kos, etc. (all the usual suspects), talking about how great it would be for people to go to Sarah Palin’s book signings and throw eggs, tomatoes, rocks, etc. at her and her family. Our first impulse at this is to say, “Sarah, declare yourself a 2012 candidate already and get Secret Service protection NOW. Dr. Utopia got it earlier than anyone in history, so you should get it early too.” Then, we hear news that the sickos on the Left are hoping people...

    The folks at Daily Kos finds something "shocking" in their regular polling: The first indicator of potential peril is the right track-wrong track metric. With each passing day, the mood of the nation is going to be reflected on the current political leadership in Washington DC, rather than the transgressions and incompetencies of the past leadership. And the mood of the nation appears to be darkening, rather than growing more optimistic. After a meteoric rise in the opening few months of the new Obama adminstration, the RT/WT metric now sits at its worst level in months (-17: 40/57). But a...
