John McCain Complains About Media Love For Another Candidate With Gay Song Contest

Sweet criminy, did Juan McCain send out a hot e-mail this morning or what: “It’s pretty obvious that the media has a bizarre fascination with Barack Obama. Some may even say it’s a love affair. We want you to be the judge. We’ve compiled two videos of the more outrageous moments of this not so secret love affair.” Indeed, it’s very similar to the “secret love affairs” that John McCain had during his first marriage, and more recently too, and also with the media.

He happens to be very lucky to be who he is. And the country is caught up in the concept.” Whoopsy! Read more on Why Won’t Hillary Clinton Apologize For Geraldine Ferraro’s Dumb Comments?…

Goldberg vs. Coulter vs. The Rest of Us

It’s like Godzilla vs. Mothra, only it’s even less clear who to cheer against! When we last glimpsed La Coulter, she was playing panties-peekaboo and flapping the otherwise unflappable Donnie Deutsch with the sort of raw grrl power that only a young Maggie Thatcher could muster.

Execution Doesn’t Count as “Abridging Freedom,” Right?

Next week on ‘Reliable Sources’, a roundtable on Bill Keller: Hanging or public hanging? Meanwhile: When asked to back up the White House accusation that a recent New York Times story put American lives at risk by disclosing vital secrets to terrorists, the best press secretary Tony Snow could do yesterday was this: “I am absolutely sure they didn’t know about SWIFT.”[…]SWIFT has a Web site, at swift.com.

Katherine Harris’s Extreme Makeover

As you may have heard, Rep. Katherine Harris told Sean Hannity the other day that the reason she looked so unattractive in those photos from the 2000 Florida debacle was because the photos had been doctored. Stranger things have happened, so we decided to check it out, comparing a photo from the debacle (actually the 2001 Inauguration but we think that counts as “debacle”) to a photo from her official website. Hmm. Well, there’s definitely been some doctoring somewhere… Read more on Katherine Harris’s Extreme Makeover…
