    David Brock of Media Matters joins Keith Olberman to discuss Ann Coulter's blatent plagiarism, lies, and distortions.

       This is an interview with the Governor of Arizona. What does she think of McCain's chances?

    Ann Coulter is like shock jock, she says a lot of things that she doesn't really believe. She just wants to get people worked up so that they will buy her books.

    That was great, I don't see how McCain can be doing so good in the polls if he can't win in his home state. I liked what she said about him picking a woman. It's insulting for him to think that all he has to do is pick a woman and we'll all vote for him. I think it would be great to have a woman President, but I don't want the first one to be just a Female version of George W. One day we will have a Female President and she will be great which leaves Sarah Palin out of the picture.

    Don't get carried away there Jess, the Governor of Arizona is a Dem, what did you except her to do? There was no way that she would have supported McCain.

    I just found this in my emails, it's cool.
    ————————————————————-
    “The stakes for our nation could not be higher.
    When a hurricane strikes in the Gulf of Mexico, this country should not be so dependent on imported oil that we are forced to draw from our Strategic Petroleum Reserve.
    And families cannot throw away more and more of their paychecks on gas and heating oil.
    With Russia wanting to control a vital pipeline in the Caucasus, and to divide and intimidate our European allies by using energy as a weapon, we cannot leave ourselves at the mercy of foreign suppliers.
    To confront the threat that Iran might seek to cut off nearly a fifth of world energy supplies … or that terrorists might strike again at the Abqaiq facility in Saudi Arabia … or that Venezuela might shut off its oil deliveries … we Americans need to produce more of our own oil and gas. And take it from a gal who knows the North Slope of Alaska: we've got lots of both.”
    “And I've learned quickly, these past few days, that if you're not a member in good standing of the Washington elite, then some in the media consider a candidate unqualified for that reason alone.
    But here's a little news flash for all those reporters and commentators: I'm not going to Washington to seek their good opinion – I'm going to Washington to serve the people of this country. Americans expect us to go to Washington for the right reasons, and not just to mingle with the right people.
    Politics isn't just a game of clashing parties and competing interests.
    The right reason is to challenge the status quo, to serve the common good, and to leave this nation better than we found it.
    No one expects us to agree on everything.
    But we are expected to govern with integrity, good will, clear convictions, and … a servant's heart. ”
    “In politics, there are some candidates who use change to promote their careers.
    And then there are those, like John McCain, who use their careers to promote change.”
    AND THE BEST “I guess a small-town mayor is sort of like a “community organizer,” except that you have actual responsibilities. I might add that in small towns, we don't quite know what to make of a candidate who lavishes praise on working people when they are listening, and then talks about how bitterly they cling to their religion and guns when those people aren't listening.
    We tend to prefer candidates who don't talk about us one way in Scranton and another way in San Francisco. “

       As a Christian I am deeply bothered when someone takes the Lord’s name in vain. When someone proclaims himself a Christian businessman and then cheats people that is taking the Lord’s name in vain. When someone proclaims themselves to be a Christian politician while lying out of both sides of her mouth, that is taking the Lord’s name in vain.
    This is a short video clip of Keith Olbermann laying out the facts about Sarah Palin’s lies.

    Speaking of stereotypical evil PTA moms, there is that scene in Field Of Dreams, where there is one, when the protagonists are at the school board meeting. Maybe that was Ms. Palin? Anyway, I still choose to believe, that there may be a corn field in Iowa, where the division between heaven and earth is thin. And I am still looking forward to playing catch with my dear departed dad ;-))

    By the way

    Do you think the Lord would be “pleased” that you are bothered by someone taking the Lord's name in vain? By the way what is the Lord's name and all of its variables?
    “When someone proclaims themselves to be a Christian politician while lying out of both sides of her mouth, that is taking the Lord’s name in vain.”——-this is such a rare occurance everyone should be upset from both Parties.

    Just proves she is a politician, but you knew that, right? 😉 Also makes her a preacher ;-( So don't marry her. And if you don't like liars, don't vote. In Judaism, when you make other Jews look bad, this is called a sin too. This is why I hate what Euclid says … even though he hasn't done anything about it. He give Gentiles a reason to hate us Jews. She gives me reason to hate Christians and Alaskans and Americans and Republicans and women … just not as intensely as you feel it. If she was just another stereotypical evil PTA mom, I would like her, as long as I wasn't married to her ;-))
    Shalom

    Maybe and maybe not, but one thing is for sure, if it was political suicide to go against McCain in his home state of Arizona she would just have been quite. McCain couldn't even get 51% in Arizona's primary, what does that tell you? It says to me that his support is so weak that it is safe for the governor to back Obama.

    I don't see how anyone can say that Palin lying is okay. I know that it's politics, but wordsmithing is one things, playing on what someone said is one thing, but outright lying? No, that is wrong, I don't care if it is politics or how many lies are told, it's still wrong. That's why most people are sick and tired of the business as usual and want change, real change, not just some old guy who has been part of the problem using the word as a slogan.

    Here's a little more fact checking and it looks like Palin was anything but honest.

    Lying might be classed as a sin, for many Christians….but to wahhabi Muslims it is not if they are doing so to any infidels!

    Yes, but originally that was not so, it is a Persian trait, not Arabic, to dissimulate. This is a cultural trait originally, to avoid embarasment. Under Sunni oppression of Shia, it became a political survival tool. I assure you, in theory, Sunnis are not allowed to lie. When Muslims lie, they stray far from Muhammad.

    Taking the Lord's name in vain to me is not the same thing as lying while claiming to be Christian. Being Christian doesn't seem to make one perfect. I wish it did.

    Excellent point, based on that claim, only perfect angels are Christian. Guess you are the only one 😉

    I seem to recall a Republican using the same expression about Obama, either just before or during the Democratic Convention.

    John McCain found himself facing a snarling, lipsticked pack on ABC’s “The View,” as the usually friendly hosts hit him repeatedly on his campaign ads and his own character, ABC reported.
    “We know these ads are lies,” said co-host Joy Behar. “But you say ‘I approve these messages.’ Do you really approve them?”
    She was disputing the notion that Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama intentionally insulted GOP veep nominee Sarah Palin when he used the phrase “lipstick on a pig” to counter McCain’s claim he represents change; and another ad’s claim that Obama wants to teach sex education to kindergartners.
    “Actually, they are not lies,” McCain said. He was interrupted by Barbara Walters, who noted he had used the lipstick phrase himself. McCain countered that he used it to refer to former Democratic contender Hillary Clinton’s health-care plan.
    On the sex-ed ad, McCain said, “Teaching kids sex is not all right. (Obama) shouldn’t have said it. He chooses his words very carefully,and this is a tough campaign.”
    Obama told Planned Parenthood last year that sex education for kindergartners, as long as it is “age-appropriate,” is “the right thing to do,” ABC reported.
    Even lone “View” conservative, Boston College grad Elisabeth Hasselbeck, said, “You’re not going to get softballs from me,even though you have my vote.” She grilled McCain on whether he and Palin would try to overturn Roe v. Wade.
    “I think what we’d be doing is appointing or nominating justices to the United States Supreme Court and other courts who strictly interpret the Constitution of the United States,” said McCain, adding, “Roe v. Wade was a very bad decision.” The audience booed.
    Behar charged McCain is now “much more lockstep with George Bush’s policies,” no longer “the same old John McCain who used to really buck the system.”
    “What specific have I, quote, changed? Nobody can name it,” McCain replied. “The point is, I’m the same person with the same principles, whether spending, climate change, the conduct of the war in Iraq, torture of prisoners – no matter what it is.”
    ABC reported that in a commercial break, Barbara Walters asked the audience if “The View” hosts were being too rough on McCain. The crowd shouted said no.
    Whoopi Goldberg asking “If your elected President should I worry about being a slave again is the most disgusting, racists remark I've ever heard uttered on television. If she opened a book she could read about the Democratic Party in the south as being the pro slave party against Lincoln's Republican Party. She would also find that the “solid south” was the Democratic Party in southern states that kept the south segregated for over 100 years after Lincoln was assassinated. So Whoopi is also history stupid. If you've seen any of her recent movies you could understand her worry of earning a living. What a disgusting person.
    When Bracka Hussein Obama Jr (sometimes called Barry) and his lovely statuesque Marxist wife were on the View they were treated as royalty, this just goes to show the absolute disdain they Socialist have for anyone that has a moral compass-stands up for their convictions and does not march to the Socialist drum beat..
    Pravda West at it again–in the tank with Bracka Hussein Obama Jr and the Socialist Democrat Party..

    Jon Stewart got it right when he recast Sean Hannity's Faux interview as an infomercial. We've got to laugh to avoid crying. Video after the jump.

    Did you notice that Barack was wearing a Flag pin but McCain wasn't? I guess by all the Con's rhetoric that would make Obama the patriotic one.

    The late night hosts — even Jon Stewart — tend to be cordial and sympathetic to politicians when they're present as guests while reserving the right to mock them when they're not around. Which means, if you're a candidate, you cancel your appearance on a late night show at your peril. That's what happened yesterday when John McCain dropped out of his scheduled appearance on the Late Show at the last minute, citing a need to go to Washington immediately to fix the economic crisis. Letterman, who, let's not forget, has provided such a friendly forum to McCain in previous appearances that the senator announced his presidential candidacy on the Late Show (PopWatch was there, live!), made a point last night of praising McCain's past heroism while at the same time calling out his excuse for standing Dave up as fishy. Turns out Dave's suspicions were correct; instead of returning to D.C., McCain was at that very moment just a few blocks away being primped and made up for an interview by fellow CBS-er Katie Couric, as Letterman demonstrated by cutting to the live feed at the CBS Evening News studio.
    Now, you can argue that Dave was churlish for spending some nine minutes of the show mocking McCain's flimsy excuse, or for booking outspoken McCain critic Keith Olbermann as a substitute guest. Still, this was can't-look-away television. Check out the highlights below, and tell us whether you thought Dave went too far or not far enough.

    That was the most discussing video, I guess John McCain's service to this country doesn't matter to some people. I'll admit that he wasn't my first choice, but he's a lot better than Obama. BTW did Obama service and fight for American freedoms? Was Obama a POW? Did he fight in a war for America? That video just made me mad, it should be removed!

     

    Proud of being a Republican

    There is more honesty on the View than on FAUX News or Limbaugh and I remember you quoting them.
