Chris Matthews Goes Off on GOP ‘Hate’; Mark Levin Goes Off on NBC News

Watching MSNBC is fun from an anthropological perspective. This is the kind of stuff that liberals believe. This is how their minds work. Here is Chris Matthews accusing Republicans and the Tea Party of hate: What is so bizarre about that is that this wasn’t some off-the-cuff  gaffe. It was an actual scripted segment, during which Matthews used […]

Not Trying to Play ‘True Conservative’ Here, But the Budget Deal Is a Problem

Where to begin? I suppose a good logical starting point is this video with Mark Levin calling in to Neal Cavuto’s show: Those Republicans who are in high-five victory-lap end-zone-dance mode over the late-night budget deal — and yeah, I’m looking at you, Carl Cameron — will be tempted to dismiss Levin’s criticism as just […]

Hey, Remember That Crazy Conspiracy Theory Glenn Beck Was Talking About?

According to every Serious Foreign Policy Pundit, it’s absolutely insane for Beck to assert that the Left and the Islamists are in alliance to bring revolution to the Middle East. However, as Donald Douglas points out, that’s what the Left is telling us: The neo-Stalinist ANSWER homepage has the announcement, “Emergency demonstrations: Stop all U.S. […]

‘Somebody Has to Stand Up’

So says Mark Levin: [H]e offered $100,000 to Chris Matthews to find any example where Sarah Palin or Levin himself had “promoted the murder of anybody.” The direct challenge to Matthews took place shortly after Levin had played clips of Matthews suggesting Levin’s passionate radio shows were “angry” and apparently implying that Levin’s shows and […]

Malkin and Coulter Underrated?

Conservative Home, a new Web site run by people you never heard of, has published the results of a survey of “1,152 Republican activists” identifying their favorite pundits. The top five are Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Charles Krauthammer, Bill O’Reilly and Sean Hannity — i.e., the top talk-radio star, three Fox News hosts and and […]

Glenn Beck Criticizing George Soros? Beck’s a Jew-Hater, Says Media Matters

Sammy Benoit at Yid With Lid disassembles the latest product from the Smear Factory. Somebody needs to research whether Media Matters rang the anti-Semitism bell when the Left was routinely accusing the Bush administration of being controlled by a sinister cabal of Zionist neo-cons. Better yet: Why wasn’t it Jew-hating when Media Matters was going after Pamela Geller? […]

Patterico’s Latest Gambit: Trying to Pit Michelle Malkin Against Mark Levin?

More unfortunate fallout today from the Delaware Senate campaign, a subject about which I know a lot but have said relatively little in recent weeks. To explain my side of the story: From early October onward, I tried to turn my attention (and readers’ attention) to House races. The Senate campaigns were getting plenty of coverage […]

Makin’ Stuff Up, Again

Mark Levin insists on a retraction from Politico in response to Jonathan Martin’s Sarah Palin “gotcha” piece: According to a source familiar with the situation, she backed out of planned interviews with conservative talk-show hosts Sean Hannity and Mark Levin the morning she was scheduled to talk to them. And her multiple schedule changes so […]
