A Mostly Center-Right Place For Those With Irritable Obama Syndrome and Diversity Fatigue

Mr. Beck’s Blackboard Jungle Goes To Washington…With MLK August 27, 2010

Welcome to the return of ALS Diversity Fatigue Friday!

This being ALS Diversity Fatigue Friday, is the perfect day to post about an upcoming event tomorrow which has become a rather heated matter of debate for those of divergent political backgrounds.

On Saturday, August 28th at the steps of the Lincoln Memorial,  there will be a “Million Tea Bag March” to commemorate the gathering of Dr. Martin Luther King JR.’s historic  march on Washington on the very same day in 1963.

Yes, on “I Have A Dream Day”  millions of Tea Partiers will march on Washington in order to promote civil and First Amendment rights and recognize the service of our veterans.  The sponsor of this event- Glenn Beck.

Yes I said Glenn Beck.

And by now you have just spit your Vitamin Water and realized why this rally has become a spectacle for debate.

As a matter of full disclosure,  I  am only jesting in my use of the title “Million Tea bag March “.

Actually the rally is entitled  “Restoring Honor” . Glenn Beck’s sponsorship of the event remains in the not jesting category.  This is very real and making liberals of the Rev. Al Sharpton ilk very angry.


And I do not understand why the left is angry.

I do not understand why self-professed tolerant liberals who argue for things such as a mosque near Ground Zero would be upset that Glenn Beck is marching on Washington on the MLK’s anniversary. ..

Oh what did you say? Okay, now I get it…Because Glenn Beck works for Fox News, he must be a conservative, therefore not worthy of commemorating a historic event in our nation’s history which marks an accolade during the Civil Rights era.

Which is why liberals have mocked Glenn’s original poster with this im-poster (pun intended):

By the way, in the first clip of Glenn Beck , he is talking about Barack Obama – not Martin Luther King Jr.!  I love the way that was juxtaposed and taken out of context.

Hmm, MLK and Glenn Beck….

Listen up liberals, there is no doubt that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.  occupies a position of importance in American History, especially for African Americans and Democrats.  Dr. King is the Moses of the Civil Rights era, he led his people to the promised land.

But you are not MLK’s only people.

Do you think that MLK only represented people who hold your views?

Is his memory shared among those with whom he dissented?

Do you believe that only African American’s were included in his vision?

Dr. King wanted people to be judged by the content of their character and not the color of their skin…I will carry it further and add… or the lever they pull in the voting booth.   Civil Rights affected everyone, even racists such as segregationists.  It was up to them whether or not they benefited from King’s sacrifices in a positive manner.

My above statement is by no means an implication that Glenn Beck is a racist.


He is not.  Whacky in a very Howard Beale ala Peter Finch /Network way he is.


My support of Glenn Beck is tepid.

He started off with a great message but I became lost in the minutia of the blackboard, scented chalk, venn diagrams and finger puppets.  Beck is the Romper Room of Fox News and I find myself wanting to run for graham crackers and a juice box whenever I see him.

“What is this dude talking about?”  I ask.

But there are Beck fans that “get” him and I respect that.   I just don’t do blackboards.

Afrocity is more of a Sean Hannity girl.  I like my pundits straight and without a lot of visual stimulation.   Seldom is Beck on my tele-radar.  Having said that, the show has been seen enough by me to know that he is not a racist.  I also admire his courage to cry on camera and discuss his mother’s  suicide and his battle with alcoholism.

Whatever Glenn Beck is …Martin Luther King,  he is not.

He never said he was.

Did anyone ever hear Glenn Beck say he was Martin Luther King?  Has anyone seen Glenn Beck’s face next to MLK’s on some Hypercolor tee-shirts or thongs like someone we all know?

But obviously you were okay with Barack Obama appropriating the memory of MLK for his own political gain because…Obama is black and one of Dr. King’s people.

Whatever Barack Obama is…Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. , he is not.

The man above needs a doctor.

But according to liberals, it is okay to climb up to the Tower of Liberal Fable–  otherwise known as “Kool Aid Mountain” and create the DNC golden calf-ish lobster eating, Martha’s Vineyard vacationing Obama in Martin Luther King’s image.  A wrongful death of logic it is,  to believe that liberals and only liberals have claim to the memory of MLK.

It does not matter to the Beck rally critics that some of the Tea Partiers who attend may be African Americans or folks who were involved in the Civil Rights movement directly and positively.

What happens when you worship a golden calf? Time wears the gold off the feet of all idols and Styrofoam Greek temples, if their feet be made of clay.

The King legacy is yours to pimp.

Do you really believe that the Tea Party has nothing to do with the dream of equal rights?

Unlike Obama, King was a unifying force.

He was not divisive or arrogant. He was humble.

King was a fierce proponent of peaceful protest and non violence .  He worked across the political and cultural aisle with Democrats and Republicans , blacks and whites in order to advance the Civil Rights Movement.  On October 10, 1963 after his great march, the FBI wiretapped King’s home -under the orders of US Attorney General Robert  Kennedy.  Suspicious of King, Kennedy believed that this preacher man from Alabama had ties to the communist party.

So much for civil rights from the Democrats.

So much for looking beyond fear and paranoia and into the content of  Dr. King’s character.  And this is a benign version of the incident.  Dr. King’s relationships with the Kennedy’s and many Democrats were laced with tension and mistrust.   Democrats voted against Civil Rights legislation in large numbers- Republican votes helped pass the bill.  Even JFK voted against civil rights measures as a senator.

Martin Luther King Sr. was actually a Republican and there is a significant amount of proof that MLK was as well…that is until they switched parties.

There is much speculation as to why the father and son switched from Republican to Democrat.   There are some historians who believe that Kennedy’s assistance when King was imprisoned, served as an impetus for gaining the Kings’ support. Others believe the Democrats offered King hope for the future of African Americans by outlining programs to promote self-reliance and success– also known as  “the Great Society” under the Johnson administration.  Left to itself without true structure or aims,  the Great Society led to nothing but dependence upon the Federal Government and the break up of the black family.   I will never allow myself to believe that MLK knew this would happen.

After King’s assassination in 1968,  with African Americans delivered on a platter to the Democrats,  President Lyndon B. Johnson’s got his wish;  “I’ll have those niggers voting Democratic for the next 200 years, ” he said.

Perhaps. It is possible that African Americans will always be 95% Democrat as a race. However, you cannot have your MLK cake and eat it too.

During the 1980′s liberals rallied President Reagan for a national holiday commemorating King’s birthday. and they got it.

NATIONAL HOLIDAY. No mail. Stay at home.

That is everyone’s holiday and King’s memory belongs to ALL.

Your King day is my King Day is Glenn Beck’s King Day.

Upon leaving Washington DC two weeks ago, I felt secure in knowing that a museum dedicated to African American history would finally reside on the Washington Mall in the year 2015. Being a curator and an avid museum goer, I have wanted this for some time in my life.  Seeing the beginnings of African American themed  exhibits at the Smithsonian bring me closer to the reality of a museum which shares MY heritage with my fellow Americans.

Me looking at an exhibit on The Apollo Theatre at the Smithsonian

For years, I have been secretly jealous of a particular museum which has nothing to do with my heritage directly but rather captures my heart and the attention of so many others who pass through its doors.  Of course I am speaking of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, DC.

One museum is a reality, the other is just a design.

Freelon Adjaye Bond/SmithGroup is the architectural team who will design the National Museum of African American History and Culture on the National Mall near the Washington Monument.

As a study in memory and trauma, the Holocaust extends to every American whether they wish to admit it or not. The evidence and ugliness of genocide went beyond traditional boundaries of race or creed.  There were crimes –genocide- the extermination of thousands of Jews which yielded victims.

There was punishment for war crimes which yielded villains.  There were those who served as intervention, as rescuers , – Great Britain, Russia, and the United States.  There were massive relief efforts to refugees by American organizations such as the Joint Distribution Committee. Food, money clothing sent to Poland, Germany, France.

This was everyone’s story and everyone can remember that story either personally through photographs and spoken word or publicly remembered at spaces such as the Holocaust Museum in Washington DC.  You may ask, why is there a museum placed within our US capital solely dedicated to an event which did not take place on American soil.  The answer is simple.

Because the Holocaust did not end in the concentration camps; it did not end with the suicide of Adolph Hitler.  What was left behind was the scars of trauma and the triumph of survival –all crystallized as memory.  If one were to survive the Holocaust and come to the United States, those memories and the need to remember or forget came with them. As Americans we are all included in the process of holocaust remembrance because Jewish immigrants are Americans.  The museum is in America because we all either directly or through collective memory have a claim on the event. It is ours.

Every visitor, even African American non-Jewish Afrocity brings some sense of self and understanding to the commemorative space. What does the Holocaust mean to me as a black woman?   Looking at the seemingly millions of Jewish faces – portraits of life and legacy which were extinguished,  I only have one comparison to make- the trauma of slavery and the triumph of the Civil Rights Act.

Permanent Exhibit at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. Wall of faces

I take inspiration from the Jewish community in knowing that despite a horrific event, they overcame.

I want that for African Americans and I want everyone to commemorate the loss, pain and struggles of slavery publicly in a safe space for everyone without judgment.

African American history is American history.

Our museum will be your museum.

The march that Dr. King took on August 28, 1968 is everyone’s march.

There are no special claims.

Go march on Washington Mr. Beck

Barack Obama and his Disease NOT to Please March 18, 2010

When Bret Baier of FOX NEWS stepped into President Barack Obama’s parlor for a lengthy interview yesterday , all arrogance and subterfuge broke out from the mouths of the two-faced chosen one.

When it comes to getting to the heart of the matter with the head of our nation, there are no logical underpinnings. Only a smarmy and disturbingly dismissive air  that is and will always be the true nature of Obama.   There is no sense of openness with this guy. The house is full of glass –breakable objects with “DO NOT TOUCH” signs –such as his ego.  Look at it, admire it, but don’t you dare touch it or you may get shocked.   Because his clenched lipped, wide toothy smile is an extension of his fake demeanor, I am not quite certain how much forced effort he expends per appearance to actually endear himself to the public.

I will bet anyone a tall frothy mug of root beer that Obama ran to some back room and punched some poor unsuspecting well wallpapered White House wall  after his FOX interview.

Bravo to Bret Baier, for not falling for the ol’ Obama long drawn out response trick. Bravo to FOX NEWS for not rolling over and playing dead like nearly every other media outlet known to man.

I love the way Obama is dismissive of Bret’s email examples.  Emails from ACTUAL PEOPLE.  Not his Kool AID punch drunk adoring fans who are planted like acorns at town hall meetings.

So reminiscent of Obama’s “I HAVE A BRACELET TOO” moment during a 2008 presidential debate.

Has anyone ever told you that you are too nice?  That you are “a pleaser” ?  You care too much about what others think?   For every disease there is its evil twin.  The twin of “the disease to please” is named Barack Obama.

Obama’s lack of concern for Americans is not hidden in some deep dank, dark place beneath the surface… It is on the surface.

There is no “at first sight he seems compassionate” .    At least for smart voters like myself there wasn’t

Any intelligent, discerning voter can see that it is in Obama’s DNA not to please.  There is something more important in his life than you and that’s HIM.  Make no mistake that his inner house is full of glass. His brain has skylights and trap doors, no expression of true warmth and held together with steel and concrete beams, 40 tons of granite.

Ultimately this man is a with-holder.  While voters were douching their minds with  hope n’ change, Obama was cocooning his ego in the love bath.

Whatever originally attracted anyone to vote for Obama is beyond me.  His ego is his driving force, not the will of the people.   There is no well being center oasis in the desert.  Any attempt to reason with him will cause the “Uh, UH” responses and the dreaded “LOOK”.   Obama wants to keep things as fluidly slick and deceptive as possible.  When you touch the glass, it breaks and will cut you.

Hopefully in 2012 what felt so right to voters in 2008, will feel so wrong.  Whether any of his behavior and broken promises inspire his supporters to CHANGE and hope for something better, is entirely up to them.

People like me are just the messengers of the obvious message.

Sunday Soliloquy: What Say You Sarah? Who’s Your Founding Daddy Now? January 17, 2010

Keen to maximize on  Sarah Palin’s first week as a commentator on FOX News, the folks at MSNC morning show polished up on the illustrated art and craft of hating the former Alaska governor. They watched her FOX appearances and dissect her answers like Jack Ripper performing a Pap smear exam on Annie Chapmann.

While appearing on the Glenn Beck Program, Sarah Palin was asked by Beck which was her favorite founder as in “Founding Fathers”.

Beck:  Who’s your favorite Founder?

Palin: You know, well, all of them, because they came collectively together with so much–”

Beck: Bullcrap

Palin: –so much diverse and so much diversity in terms of belief, but collectively they came together — and they were led by, of course George Washington, so he’s got to rise to the top.

This video clip of Glenn Beck and Bill O’Reilly includes the exchange between Beck and Palin:

Before I address Sarah Palin’s answer to Glenn Beck’s question, can I just say that I am sick to death of every mainstream media outlet becoming the couch potato psychologist for Sarah Palin. The last thing we need is FOX News doing it as well.  Sorry Bill-O, I do not agree with your characterization of Sarah’s answer to Glenn Beck as being a cop out. However,  I  do agree with your assessment of  the idiots at MSNBC’s “Morning Joe”.

As we all know, bashing Sarah Palin is a life sustaining vehicle for MSNBC. Many terms in the lexicon of Palin hating moonbats derive from Keith Olbermann and his bottom feeder colleagues.

Of course , the quality of  journalism at MSNBC always proves that there will never be a dearth of dim light bulbs. Ironically, karma being the wicked bitch of the west, in her attempt to  downplay the intelligence of Sarah Palin,  dumb ditz Mika Brzezinski proved to be the dimmest yellow journalism brick in the road..

Yes, she actually believed that Abraham Lincoln was a Founding Father. Bill you gave Mika far too much credit.  Mika was not joking. I believe that she actually and truly thought that Abraham Lincoln was a Founding Father. The average American cannot name the framers of the constitution. They believe that it is anyone whose face is carved on Mount Rushmore, hence  idiot  Mika from MSNBC naming Abraham Lincoln.

Two of these men are not Founding Fathers, come on can you tell which ones???

Getting back to Sarah Palin’s answer to Glenn Beck.  I was fine with her answer as it  has some valid points. Why are we consumed as a society with ranking things?  The question in itself was along the lines of Katie Couric’s “What magazines do you read?” .  Next they will ask Sarah who is her favorite  character or what famous serial killer does she admire the most.

“oh golly gee Glenn, I choose Theordore Bundy because he was a Republican.”

This is NOT a Founding Father

I can only imagine the irritation Sarah Palin feels whenever questions of this type enter an interview.  Any answer would have been the wrong one.  Had she named Thomas Jefferson as her favorite Founding Father, a nanosecond later the NAACP would claim she is a racist because Jefferson, who had more slaves than any, was known to have played “Ride Sally Ride” in the literal sense.  Had she named Hamilton, Rachel Maddow would have went into the meta-ethics of that answer.

Sarah’s utterance  “all of them” was a safe bet.  She is right. Founding Fathers …plural…as a collective body.

After all they are all important and she would have been slammed regardless of any answer she gave. When it comes to rabid liberals, Sarah Palin is the consummate conservative bitch in heat. You can’t put protective panties on that booty.

The liberals idea of Palin Hood

In the video clips of Beck and O’Reilly,  you see a mention or two of  Founding Fathers- Jefferson, Washington, or Hamilton.  Let’s reverse a common practice here and name fathers who are long neglected in the extensive musings  and cannons of “great American  men”.  How about John Jay? James Madison? John Adams?   Adams was hardly ever mentioned until his resurgence to popularity thanks to HBO and Paul Giamatti.

How unfortunate that it took a mini-series  to finally give John Adams some historical credit within our collective memory. Adams personality and appearance being not as magnetic and attractive as Jefferson’s or Washington’s, force his legacy to suffer from our nation’s tendency towards selective amnesia.  Now he is “cool” again.  Wow, Laura Linney played his wife dude.

What about Benjamin Franklin? You know the guy who invented bifocals and created this famous  political cartoon:

If anyone asks Afrocity, which Founding Father her my favorite, you know what she will say?

“All of them”

You betcha!

Conservative Ladies Night On Fox News!!! January 13, 2010

From I Own the World

Uh-oh it is that time. Occulata palingenia haterus moonbats are at it again. Sarah Palin made her debut as a Fox commentator on the O’Reilly Factor last night and fresh off the presses are Palin haters with remarkable mutation stories of her performance. From this article by Baltimore Sun critic David Zurawik:

January 12, 2010

Sarah Palin’s Fox debut: Prime-time propaganda

Sarah Palin and Bill O’Reilly — the only question is how high the ratings will go.

What a pair and what an awful politicization of TV news.

O’Reilly, the highest rated host on cable news TV, introduced the newest star in the Fox News galaxy Tuesday night as a “news analyst.” If what Palin did in her debut is news analysis, I’m the governor of Alaska and I can see Russia from my backyard.

Zurawik’s  “Russia from my backyard” statement pretty much tells you where he is going with his critique.  Down the long and winding mudslinging  road of outdated and rehashed Tina Fey SNL Sarah Palin parody skits.  Wow, how creative and appealing to your readers. What an awful politicization of journalism, huh?Watch your readers slobber with Palin hating delight?  What the article suggests is more of the same liberal bashing and fine tooth combing of Palin.  She will never have a chance with these guys.  The article showcases the not so clever and unoriginal words of a so called TV and pop culture critic for the Baltimore Sun who writes about the “craziness of TV” though the crazy lens of liberal mainstream media.

The readers of the Baltimore Sun should be blessed that  Zurawik’s genius “Ph.D. in American Studies from the University of Maryland, College Park, and an M.A. in specialized reporting (on popular culture) from the University of Wisconsin” deigned to take on the lowly subject of Sarah Palin.

After all Sarah Palin is an insignificant political is a nobody… right?

Zurawik is such the bigger person, not former governor of Alaska with the powers of persuasion to rally hundreds of thousands, raise five children including one who is special needs, and land a contract with the nation’s most highly rated cable news channel.  I will spare you Zurawik’s blow by blow account of Palin’s conversation with O’Reilly and let you see and hear the exchange as it appeared on Fox News:

Zurawik continues:

“In the language of television, that exchange was a perfect interview pas de deux, with Palin sounding intelligent and reasonable with all the “perhaps-es” and the “quites,” while O’Reilly deftly introduced the outrageous notion that Pelosi is “crazy” — and somehow made it seem like it is a widely held belief.

What a cart and pony show. O’Reilly is a TV master, Palin’s a TV player, and together they are going to bring orgiastic TV delight to right-wing viewers. I think I actually heard Nielsen People Meters exploding on TV sets in the more affluent suburbs of Baltimore last night when these two really got going.

I will spare you the scenario of O’Reilly teeing up old sad sack Harry Reid so that Palin could talk about her lifelong commitment to “diversity” and how indefensible she found Reid’s comments about the color of Obama’s skin.”

Really Mr. Zurawik?  You will “spare us that”? Gee why? Could it be because Harry Reid’s comments were indefensible? Oh I forgot Harry Reid is a Democrat, so lets just hold our hope n’ change noses in the air while that big smelly liberal hypocrisy fart bomb dissipates into see no liberal evil, hear no liberal evil la la land.

Nah, he ain't racist. He's my liberal brutha.

“I will also spare you the show-trial-like give-and-take play acting they did with O’Reilly quoting or replaying bad things that were said about Palin on “60 Minutes” so that she could call them “b.s.” or label them one-by-one a “lie” and then try to rewrite what she said — just as she did in her book “Going Rogue.”

I must briefly mention, however, the way O’Reilly helped her promote a Tea Party event at which she will be the featured speaker — and the way he tried to defend her receiving payment for the appearance. I must because I really hate it when O’Reilly uses TV this way to promote partisan events.

I will also share what she had to say about Obama’s sinking poll numbers: “Of course, they’re sinking.  It was just a matter of time before more of that reflection of the people’s uncomfortableness that they feel towards this administration is manifesting in these poll numbers,” she said. “… There is an obvious disconnect between President Obama and the White House, what they are doing to our economy and what they are doing in terms of not allowing Americans to feel as safe as we had felt…”

I forgot how Palin speaks in a grammar and syntax unlike anyone else on this planet, but you get the idea. And I’ll tell you what: In a protected TV environment like the one Fox and O’Reilly skillfully provided for her Tuesday night, I think she could be a red-hot ratings winner. And the country and our political conversation are going to be the poorer for it.

I can only imagine what kind of power these two might come to wield in the elections of 2010. This is not news analysis. This is TV as political propaganda.”

Ah, beware of the conservative sirens of Fox News. Flashing their shiny hair and pro-life smiles. Gunning for your liberal ways.  How dare FOX make you watch them.  How dare they! You are just minding your own business reading Mother Jones magazine, sitting on your organic milk crates stolen from the Trader Joe’s,  munching on dehydrated apricots and hemp granola, just minding your own business when something compels you to turn on FOX News and watch Sarah Palin. Oh, God pray to Saint Olbermann and Matthews.

I can only imagine what kind of power these two might come to wield in the elections of 2010″

Now that is hilarious. Sarah Palin obviously makes Zurawik have nightmares.

Concerning her appearance on O’Reilly, it was Sarah Palin’s first outing as a commentator on FOX News. O’Reilly was doing more of an orientation in my view. The same thing he did with John Stossel and Lou Dobbs when they were on his show.   O’Reilly is not the only FOX News venue Palin will appear on, so rest easy, you will have plenty of hate candy to chew on in all sorts of formats while viewing your FOX favorites.

Sarah and Sean.

Sarah and Greta.

Sarah and Chris Wallace.

Sarah with Fox N’ Friends.

Sarah sitting on Charles Krauthammer’s lap…

In fact she will appear on the Glenn Beck Program this afternoon.  Don’t forget to bring your Obama pillow and copy of Strunk and White. You must use that PhD. in American Studies for something besides maintaining tenure at the Baltimore Sun.

And if you Palin haters still have a  size extra small condom wrapper left, you may be interested in Ann Coulter’s slap down of Al Sharpton on Hannity which also aired Tuesday night.  Of course, as the honorable mouthpiece for the entire black community, Rev. Sharpton’s credibility’s rating is in negative digits but someone please archive this interview so we can tell him to shut the hell up the next time he brings up a racist cartoon or white person walking by a black church with a bucket of fried chicken in the near future.

And no liberal politicians, it is not okay to only call Rev. Al Sharpton and Rev.  Jesse Jackson the next time a racist flag is pinned on on the tail of a DNC jackass. YOU MUST CALL OR TEXT EVERY BLACK PERSON IN AMERICA.  What if I don’t attend their church? How will you know what I am thinking? How will you know that I have accepted your empty apology?

Saturday Toons: I Just Love Michele…Bachmann That Is November 14, 2009

 

obama-real-500x625Liberal Jon Stewart lovers are not letting up on their only hope that conservative media (aka Fox News) and the most hated conservative politician besides Sarah Palin, – Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) are immoral scumbags like most of the mainstream media and Democratic politicians he fails to cover.

Several times this week, I have been met with ” Hey Afrocity, did you hear how Jon Stewart busted Sean Hannity and Michelle Bachman?”

If you have not already heard about it, then allow me to fill you in on what the firestorm of controversy is all about.

From this article in the San Francisco Chronicle:

Hannity & Bachmann lie about rally numbers | Hannity apologizes to Jon Stewart

By Yobie Benjamin

November 11, 2009

On his Fox News show, Sean Hannity misleadingly aired video from the 9-12 March on Washington while discussing Rep. Michele Bachmann’s (R-MN) much smaller November 5 anti-health care reform rally to claim that 20,000 – 45,000 plus people showed up to Bachmann’s protest.

Ha!!!  “Reliable sources like MSNBC..” ? Is he kidding?

Olbermann_Dolly

From "I Own The World.com"

I will say again if you have not heard about this then consider yourself lucky to have escaped the desperate gloating of a liberal who clings to the notion that Keith Olberman is actually a good journalist. Afrocity just smiles and acknowledges that it was wrong. The liberal goes skipping down the hallway. Poor thing, it must feel good. Every squirrel needs a nut. The sun must shine on a donkey’s ass sometime.

To be fair, what Sean Hannity and Fox News did was wrong. Do you hear that gloating liberals waiting for bone?  Afrocity agrees with you that it was unethical for Sean to use video footage from another rally in order to mislead the viewers. Personally,  attendance numbers do not matter to me. What does matter is that Rep. Bachmann was doing her part to make sure that Obamacare was not passed.

kill_bill-11

Unlike Keith Olberman who continues to lie and exaggerate on the daily basis,  at least Sean Hannity apologized:


exorcist Bachman

From I Own The World, Hat Tip- Cowgirl Conservative

Should I be angry about this? Sorry but I am not.

Will I switch back to MSNBC, CNN…read the Washington Post?  No.

I will continue to watch FOX News. I really do not care about the videotape. I still love Michele Bachmann.  My only criticism of her is that she not care about the number of people who show up to see her. Leave that to the Obama worshiping Kool Aid gang such as Robert Gibbs and David Axelrod. Numbers do not equate substance.  How many people attended Obama rallies during the presidential campaign, yet left just as clueless about his agenda as they were before they attended? Sadly, they did not care about the words flowing from Obama’s mouth. Michele, I am sure your attendees were present because they actually gave a damn about the future of health care in America. They were angry and wanted to be heard.

Michele keep doing what you do best. Who cares about the perception? Who cares about the popularity contests?

The Continuing Saga of Fox News Derangement Syndrome November 7, 2009

2-minute-hate-Obama-I do not have much time to write today but I wanted to make sure that everyone has seen this article in yesterday’s Los Angeles Times concerning the Obama administration and FOX News:

Democratic consultant says he got a warning from White House after appearing on Fox News

‘We better not see you on again,’ the strategist says he was told by a White House official. Obama aides have taken an aggressive stance against the network and may be seeking to isolate it.

Democratic consultant says he got a warning from White House after appearing on Fox News

‘We better not see you on again,’ the strategist says he was told by a White House official. Obama aides have taken an aggressive stance against the network and may be seeking to isolate it.

By Peter Nicholas Los Angeles Times Staff Writer
November 6, 2009 | 8:59 a.m.

Reporting from Washington – At least one Democratic political strategist has gotten a blunt warning from the White House to never appear on Fox News Channel, an outlet that presidential aides have depicted as not so much a news-gathering operation as a political opponent bent on damaging the Obama administration.

Political consultants are a staple of cable television talk shows, analyzing current events based on their own experiences working on campaigns or in government.

One Democratic strategist said that shortly after an appearance on Fox, he got a phone call from a White House official telling him not to be a guest on the show again. The call had an intimidating tone, he said.

The message was, ” ‘We better not see you on again,’ ” said the strategist, who spoke on condition of anonymity so as not to run afoul of the White House. An implicit suggestion, he said, was that “clients might stop using you if you continue.”

In urging Democratic consultants to spurn Fox, White House officials might be trying to isolate the network and make it appear more partisan.

A boycott by Democratic strategists could also help drive the White House narrative that Fox is a fundamentally different creature than the other TV news networks. For their part, White House officials appear on Fox News — but sporadically and with “eyes wide open,” as one aide put it.

David Plouffe, the president’s campaign manager and author of a new campaign book, “The Audacity to Win,” was scheduled to appear on Fox’s “On the Record” with Greta Van Susteren Thursday night as he promotes his book. His appearance, preempted by the breaking news of the shootings at Ft. Hood, Texas, has been rescheduled for Monday.

White House Communications Director Anita Dunn said Thursday night that she had checked with colleagues who “deal with TV issues” and they had not told people to avoid Fox. On the contrary, they had urged people to appear on the network, Dunn wrote in an e-mail.

But Patrick Caddell, a Fox News contributor and a former pollster for President Carter, said he has spoken to Democratic consultants who have been told by the White House to avoid appearances on Fox. He declined to give their names…
