Sarah Palin: 'You Don't Wanna Mess With Conservative Women!' 8.7.2010 NewsBusters
The video, which celebrates conservative women's activism, was released this morning by Palin's political action committee, SarahPAC. "It seems like it's kind of a mom awakening in the last year and a half," says Palin, as clips of women activists at political speeches and Tea Party rallies flash over the screen. "Where women are rising up and saying 'No -- we've had enough, already.' Because moms kind of just know when something's wrong." The inspiring message in the video is a contrast to the attacks against conservative women that have been launched by media and political figures on the left. In May, liberal talker Mike Malloy called Rep. Michelle Bachmann, R-Minn., a "phony-ass broad" and a ...

Once and future rivalry: Utah, Colorado 7.7.2010 Salt Lake Tribune
When he took a handoff and dashed into the end zone for a clinching touchdown in a 1962 season opener, Bud Scalley could not have known he was scoring the University of Utah’s last points against Colorado for roughly a half-century. Just as unlikely: Having the schools become members of the same conference again, after more than 60 years apart. As the newest additions to the Pac-10, Utah and Colorado will renew one of the most often-played football series in their histories. Thanks to geography,...

An Interview With Speaker John Boehner 6.7.2010 Crooks Liars
Not to get all Shock Doctrine-ish on you or anything, but this interview in the Washington Post got my attention. It represents the very worst that could possibly happen to us all...Republicans winning back the House of Representatives and naming John Boehner as Speaker of the House. Take a stroll with me through Speaker Boehner's world. If the GOP were to gain the upper hand, and Boehner were elected as speaker, the question is what he and his party would do with that power. Boehner listed three priorities. First, he said, was a renewed commitment to fiscal discipline -- a test his party badly flunked the last time it was in the majority. Now, fiscal discipline means different things to different people, but to John Boehner it means ...

How Many People Are Dumb Enough To Pay Glenn Beck's 'University' Their Hard-Earned Cash? 3.7.2010 NewsTrust Yahoo Pipes Feed
Will Bunch at Attytood brings us a story that's so bizarre, at first I thought it was a joke. It isn't. (The fact that anyone will pay the Beckster $10 a month during a depression to get Double-Secret Indoctrinated? That's a joke.) I wish I could tell you that this is a clever photoshop on my part -- but sadly, no. This is the actual emblem of something called Beck University that was officially announced today by the king of all distorted right-wing media, although judging from the initial info its formal accreditation as one of America's institutions of higher learning may be a few years away (and there's no truth to the rumor that the Pac-10 immediately asked Beck U. to become a member): From Beck's web site: This July, while others ...
