Liberal reality is fabricated perception: NPR, the Southern Poverty Law Center and the infrastructure of an alternate, fact-filtered universe
Mark Potok pours fuel of hate where there is no fire.
The Southern Poverty Law Center, which has long made a crusade of demonizing Conservative America, has once again put in the form of a so-called investigative report their amalgamated dismissal of Conservatives as an angry mob of racists.
This is hardly a new spin on the political climate of our nation since Democrats officially assumed control of both the Legislature and the Office of the Executive. What makes this report more disturbing than the regular slew of flippant accusations from the Left is the insidious capacity of the author to present the most disingenuous aspersions cast upon the Right in a tidy, 1,200-word package entitled Rage on the Right: The Year in Hate and Extremism.

We need to come up with a new name for our left-wing members in the U.S. House of Representatives, for they’re clearly not Representatives of their constituents, accept by accident of a shared liberal agenda.
“Representatives” in the current majority party continually forsake the will of the American people – in deal after deal bartered for greater power and prestige. The cynic in me says, “Hey, that’s politics.”
What’s more difficult to tolerate is the depiction by the left-wing media of these non-Representatives as noble renegades fighting against popular will to do the right thing, even if it means sacrificing their chance at re-election. read more…
The list is growing at an increasing pace. Democrats in Washington, and in state legislatures and gubernatorial offices, are steadily coming forward to tell their constituents and the nation at-large that they no longer desire a role in elected office – for a variety of vague reasons.
Most notably missing from this list (for now) is the ever-defiant New York Democrat Rep. Charles Rangel, who – in the vein of Eliot Spitzer and Rod Blagoyevich – seems to believe himself untouchable despite congressional probes into his “ethical lapses.”
This is a list-in-progress. read more…
Former Saturday Night Live Star Victoria Jackson – the quintessential ditsy blonde – is smartly blogging her political frustrations at Big Hollywood these days. Check out her clever ruminations at http://bighollywood.breitbart.com/author/vjackson/. Very non-ditsy stuff.
Pop quiz hot shot.
Sen. Harry Reid and Rep. Nancy Pelosi are at the wheel of the Washington spending bus, ramming spending bills through Congress and leaving a path of fiscal destruction in their wake. If the bus slows down, voting Americans start catching on to the looming economic devastation, and the federal spending bus explodes before Democrats can achieve their goals – power and control.
What do you do? What doooo you do? read more…
Ways and Means Chairman Charlie Rangel was on the verge of losing his gavel Tuesday night as a trickle of Democratic defections turned into a flood.
“The dam broke today,” said a senior Democratic aide.
Rangel suffered a significant blow Tuesday afternoon when Rep. Artur Davis – a member of both the Ways and Means Committee and the Congressional Black Caucus who’s running for governor back home in Alabama – issued a statement in which he said the chairman “should do the right thing and step aside.”

A DAILY WRAP-UP OF SOME OF MY FAVORITE BLOG POSTS OF THE DAY
Hey Ladies – You’re being oppressed! Didn’t you notice?
Thank you Suzanne Venker for being a voice of reason in an era of perverted feminism. In her post today, Suzanne writes, “March is Women’s History Month, when all good feminists salivate for 30 days trying to convince Americans that women are oppressed.” Though I would argue one point of Suzanne’s post. Feminism isn’t dead – it’s undead – a destructive, resurrected version of a once-worthy, constructive social movement, now vacant of conscience.
Pelosi Drains the Swamp, Fills it with Bulls*&t
He didn’t “jeopardize our country in any way.” That was Rep. Nancy Pelosi’s (D-Calif) excuse for failing to remove Rep. Charlie Rangel (D-NY) from the powerful House Ways and Means Committee, despite his recent verbal spanking from the House ethics committee. Apparently, Pelosi doesn’t always take her marching orders from the liberal media. Even the New York Times thinks he should be removed! Check out Jack Cafferty’s take on the latest Democratic soap opera in Congress.
Those Crazy Kids and Their Wacky Winter Sports
FiveThirtyEight offers an interesting analysis on the shifting balance of power in the Winter Olympics, due in large part to the addition of many “new-fangled sports.” Crazy kids.
Unabashedly biased, left-wing CNN host Campbell Brown is married to a fervent Republican – a former foreign policy advisor for George W. Bush, no less. They’re not exactly Carville & Matalin, but who is?
Mr. Brown, better known as Dan Senor, is no casual Republican either, and is hoping to take his conservative values to Washington, where he will (voters willing) park them prominently in the congressional seat of New York Democrat Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand. Several news outlets have reported Senor is making the rounds, seeking the blessings of prominent NY Republicans including state GOP chairman Ed Cox, and putting feelers out in the money circles.
According to the Associated Press, an aide to former vice president Dick Cheney said tests showed “evidence of a mild heart attack.”
Former Vice President Dick Cheney is at George Washington University Hospital in Washington tonight after experiencing chest pains.
Cheney’s doctors are evaluating the situation and the former vice president is resting comfortably, his spokesman told ABC News tonight.
Now we have an improvident federal government that has spent itself into a state of near-bankruptcy. It can survive only by selling Treasury bills to Americans and foreigners, but as the government’s debts accumulate, international demand for T-bills slackens. So the Democrats are looking for money. They can’t help noticing that Americans have saved many billions of dollars–private property, theoretically, but under contemporary constitutional jurisprudence, subject to pretty much any whim that may come out of Washington.
Now, the Democrats may be poised to imitate Argentina’s theft.
