  • Team Kasich Appears To Declare War On Trump By Trying To Take Over Ohio GOP

    Hot Air ^ | 02/21/18
    John Kasich has lost considerable power since his failed 2016 presidential run. In addition to having his dream of occupying 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. elude him, he also lost his control of the Ohio Republican Party. Now, it appears that Kasich is trying to regain his vice-like grip on the Ohio Republican Party. This power move by Team Kasich is pitting them squarely against grassroots activists and President Trump’s allies in the battleground state. Kasich’s loss of control over the state party is an important part of the puzzle that is his story. Controlling the party allowed him to exert pressure...

    In the first of what Mike Pence called "several very important announcements," Politico reports that former Labor Secretary Elaine Chao is set to be announced later Tuesday as President-elect Donald Trump’s choice to lead the Department of Transportation.The other contender for the position was former Democratic U.S. Representative from Tennessee Harold Ford.As Politico adds: Chao, who ran the Labor Department under President George W. Bush, met with the incoming president at Trump Tower last week and discussed labor and transportation policy, Trump’s transition team said then. The formal announcement is expected at 1 p.m., one source said. The wife of Senate...

  • Chris Matthews: 'Pissant' Of Boehner To Blame Inaction On Divided Government

    Martin Bashir was fired from MSNBC this week for his ugly scatalogical suggestion about Sarah Palin. But there was Chris Matthews on the same network this morning using a barnyard epithet to attack another Republican. On today's Morning Joe, Matthews called John Boehner's comments on divided government "pissant." That p-word has apparently become a favorite Matthews meme in attacking Republicans. MRC's Tim Graham recently noted that Matthews used it against Rand Paul. View the video here.
  • Bachmann Criticizes Bush for ‘Socialism’ in New Memoir (and a Pissant retread zot for kicks)

    ABC ^ | 11-14-11 | Russell Goldman
    In a soon-to-be published memoir, GOP candidate Rep. Michele Bachmann accuses former President George W. Bush of “socialism” for his 2007 decision to bail out financial institutions teetering on collapse, according to reports. “The Bush administration, which had always professed faith in the free-market system, was now reversing its course,” Bachmann writes in “Core of Conviction,” a memoir to be released Nov. 15, according to Fox News, which obtained a copy. In the book, she criticizes Bush and then Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson, who pushed for the $700 billion TARP program for “embracing a kind of ‘bailout socialism.’” She said...

    (snip) “I think he’s delusional,” McCain said. “And him calling me clueless I think is so sexist and disgusting and lame and a really offhanded remark … that he’s making towards me. And I think it’s ridiculous. Any polls that he’s reading, if you were seriously running for president, you wouldn’t be taking vacations to Greece during the middle of your campaign trail. I think he has a lot of other issues that all of us are very well aware of. And I would bet my career he’s not going to be our next nominee.” (snip)
  • “The Undefeated”......Defeated.

    “The Undefeated”......Defeated. Ok, ok.......NOW she’s a quitter. Back when Govenor Palin resigned as Alaska’s “Grizzly in Chief” after a judicial assult compiled of several lawsuits against her, Palin fans were relieved, because she did not need to be put needlessly through the media and judicial ringer any more, because she was needed later for a larger calling; to defeat Obama in the election of 2012. Resignation was not seen as “quitting”, it was a strategic, maneuver, a rope-a-dope, around the anti-Palin crowd....she wasn’t quitting, she was “outflanking”. Well, Palin did indeed have a clear message last night when she announced...

    Herman Cain's uphill pursuit of the Republican presidential nomination looked more promising Wednesday than it did just a few weeks ago, as Sarah Palin announced she wouldn't join the race and several polls showed him gaining ground. The former Alaska governor said she wouldn't seek the Republican nomination, but would continue to push for changes she has championed in the past. Also helping Mr. Cain: New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie's decision to stay out of the race and the decline in support for Texas Gov. Rick Perry and Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann.

    Sarah Palin has announced she will not run for President of the Unitd States. She announced this a few minutes ago on the Mark Levin show. Listening to the show, I've transcribed Sarah Palin own words regarding her role in this upcoming election: Levin: ...I just want to reassure them. You're not going anywhere and you're going to be a voice out there for them. Correct? Palin: That's true, Mark. I'm gonna join you in this mission to help wake up America to what's going on in our country. I believe I can be more effective and I can be...

    TMZ ^ | just now
    TMZ tracked down Bristol Palin's heckler -- the one who screamed, "Your mother's a whore!" at a West Hollywood bar last night, and he's not ashamed at all. Stephen Hanks is a 47-year old L.A. consultant who would not say what he consults on. He did, however, tell us this was not a setup. As for Hanks' thoughts on Bristol's comment -- jumping to what turns out to be the correct conclusion that he's gay -- he has more choice words for Sarah's little girl.

    DES MOINES, Iowa -- Though she won't be a candidate when she delivers a major address at a tea party rally in Iowa on Saturday, Sarah Palin will make it clear that she if enters the presidential race later this month she will vociferously challenge Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s engrained image of solidarity with the tea party movement. In her speech at the bucolic National Balloon Classic field in Indianola, Palin will lean on loaded phrases like “crony capitalism” and “permanent political class” in laying out her view of the U.S. political system’s deep-rooted ills, according to a source close...

    Sarah Palin, Mrs. Independent? By Daniel Foster    Rich, I agree that Palin’s path to the presidency via the Republican primary looks increasingly untenable, especially in light of polls like this. But what if winning a Republican primary battle is not what Palin has in mind? I was struck during Sarah Palin’s road trip by her use of one word: independent. The two most memorable examples (though I believe there are more): Palin with Trump: Palin reciprocated Trump’s enthusiasm. Asked how she felt about a Palin/Trump ticket, Palin gushed, “That sounds exciting. Sounds unconventional.” She also praised Trump’s attitude. “I love his independence,”...

    Sarah Palin has obtained a new restraining order against the Pennsylvanian man who began stalking her family in 2009, alleging that he threatened to rape her daughter. The former Alaska governor claimed in legal documents that 19-year-old Shawn Christy had become more "brazen" in his threats to harm Palin and her family, including raping her daughter, TMZ reported Thursday. It is not clear in the documents which daughter was the specific target of the rape threats, but Palin went on to say that the stalker had targeted 16-year-old Willow in some of his threats and it "bothered [her] tremendously." According...

    [snip]But this descent into absurd idolatry was not limited to formerly faithless media cynics and Democrats (I am redundant). On the other side of the aisle, conservatives and some Republicans—many of whom profess a Christian faith—were suddenly unable to endure the slightest criticism of Gov. Sarah Palin.[snip]Her supporters do not, thankfully, regard Palin as some sort of transcendent humanoid, but to her base, Palin and her family have become sacrosanct to a troubling extreme that echoes the Obama cult: Jokes made at Palin’s expense are not jokes but “hate.” Constructive criticism (even when rendered mildly, and with acknowledgments of both...
