Classy Citizens of the Internet
Already Calling Candy Crowley
Too Fat to Moderate Debate

New York Magazine, by Joe Coscarelli

Original Article

Posted By:abuela10, 10/16/2012 11:19:22 AM

Candy Crowley has not yet moderated a presidential debate, but her performance (and appearance) is already being judged. The revelation that CNN's chief political correspondent might ask follow-up questions during tomorrow's town-hall-style contest has drawn the ire of both campaigns, fueling the real nastiness online, as usual, where anonymous creatures have wasted no time time calling out the weight of the first female moderator of a presidential debate in two decades. We wish we were surprised.

After what you leftists did to Sarah Palin and her daughters, Joe, you need to just shut up.

Maybe this wouldn't be an issue if the moderator wasn't an uber-liberal leftist like you. Why, Joe, do you think they didn't pick, say, a Megan Kelly from Fox?

What a bunch of crybabies.

Like the first article reply says, "Fat jokes are only funny when they reference Chris Christie."

I would add "Or Rush."

It's ugly and unproductive to center an argument or a challenge on physical appearance. I make an exception for clothing and makeup.

Seriously, her being 'plus sized' should not concern anyone. It is her political leanings that should concern us.

I have a fairly safe prediction. No matter what happens at the debate tonight, the MSM will immediately hail Obama's tremendous comeback performance and attempt to demonize Romney for being untruthful, vague and/or rude.

After the last debate, the MSM and the rest of the left wing could not stifle their shock, horror and deep disappointment at Obama. It was like a gag reflex. They simply could not hold back their overpowering urge to vomit.

Now they have had time to reflect and have become even more shocked and horrified to see Romney shoot ahead of Obama in all of the polls. The MSM and the rest of the far left-wing fringe have way too much emotionally and financially invested in Obama to simply cut him loose now. They will do whatever it takes from now until the election to prop Obama back up.

If they do manage to prop Obama up long enough to get him re-elected, then they will start tearing into him like a pack of wild dogs. The honeymoon is definitely over.

Here is exactly how the Leftists work; You must fit our model of what we like and do. If we like thin people, everyone must be thin. If we like green people, everyone must be green. Now that they have their claws around the throat of our health care system, we will be forced to fit their models of perfection, in both body and mind- and this poor stupid gal, being fat, has no clue of the hell she's in for with the leftists she so adores. Everyone eventually gets their belly full with leftys- even the most hard core of them. But, by the time they do, it's usually much, much too late. It's hard to complain when you are behind the barbed wire and a prized gift is a cup of cold oatmeal.

She may not be comfortable with her beauty either, but she fits the model for a debate moderator--lefty, prejudiced, liberal woman. The first one was so soft that he is now scheduling a visit with his new gynocologist. Candy may not need one.

So according to the nutball liberals only body appearance jokes are reserved for conservative and or republican women. Yeah right Joe. Her being a PIAPS is not the concern. Her leftist views are. And #7 bad eye Candy's debate rolls will be two cinnamon buns and an eclair with nuts.

The internet is everything, and yet nothing. And now that the opinion can be real or imagined and the foundation of opinion can be made based on the real or imagined, journalists are continuing to circle the drain.

They used to use the traditional crutches of "some people" or "sources say" and now they can just say "@crazyman603 said Candy Crowley is a cow!" and use that to lay out virtually any opinion they would like. "the internet" can give them anything they want.

Crowley's looks are not the issue. The fact that, the morning after the debate, she has now proven herself to be a worthless Obama shill and has added more credibility to the claim that these liberal-slanted debates and their "moderators" are not fair to Republicans (Obama had 44 mins. to speak; Romney, just 40) are issues. How could she say, "let me give the president a chance," when she had to know she'd given Obama more time to speak than Romney? Crowley appears to be well-suited to leave her "profession" and find a Dem PAC to work for.

The Worst Wing- How the East Wing

New Republic, by Reid Cherlin    Original Article
Posted By: abuela10- 3/25/2014 9:13:32 AM     Post Reply
In the fall of 2010, the nasty midterms drawing to a close, Michelle Obama was contemplating her next move. Two years into her tenure as first lady, the breathless fixation on guest lists and china selections was subsiding into routine, and she wanted a plan for the rest of her husband’s time in office. Of course, her calendar would never lack for National Hostess duties—the obligatory social functions outlined in binders left by Laura Bush’s team. She had already launched Let’s Move!, the childhood obesity initiative, and Joining Forces, a program to help military families and veterans, was also in

ALBANY — New York, whose status as the most populous state has long been ceded, will soon fall behind Florida into fourth place, a long-anticipated drop that is rife with symbolism and that could carry potentially serious economic consequences in coming years. When the Census Bureau releases its latest population estimates on Monday, demographers expect that Florida and New York will be narrowly separated — perhaps by as little as a few thousand people — and that if Florida does not pass New York this time, it almost certainly will do so in 2014. The census figures underscore immigration trends, as foreign-born migrants continue to

The two tabloid editors at the centre of the phone hacking trial had a secret six-year affair at the end of which Rebekah Brooks wrote to Andy Coulson: “I love you ... You are my very best friend ... I tell you everything,” the Old Bailey heard. It is alleged that Mrs Brooks and Mr Coulson oversaw phone hacking and corruption at two of the country’s biggest newspapers. Details of the clandestine relationship were made public during the second day of their trial, where they are accused of overseeing a decade of illegal activity at The Sun and The News

The Oscar-winning film director Charles Ferguson has cancelled his CNN documentary on Hillary Clinton after what he described as a private campaign against the film by prominent Democrats. Ferguson said he had decided to pull the plug after being met with a wall of silence from more than a hundred people who refused to be interviewed for the documentary. He claimed that aides to the former secretary of state put pressure on CNN behind the scenes, and made clear that Clinton would only co-operate "over my dead body". He also blamed a public campaign by Republicans, who claimed the film would be

When Ted Sarandos put out the word that Netflix would begin producing original shows, he was swamped with story pitches that everyone else in Hollywood clearly had taken a pass on — including some scripts marked with coffee stains, smudged fingerprints and other telltale signs of rejection. That all changed in 2011 after Netflix bought the political thriller "House of Cards" from "The Social Network" and "Fight Club" director David Fincher.

It’s a Duck Nation, and we’re all just living in it. Last week, A&E Network’s reality show “Duck Dynasty” catapulted to become the biggest unscripted show in cable history with its fourth season premiere. With nearly 11.8 million viewers, the show about a Louisiana family that has made millions from its duck call fabrication business is on the brink of toppling “The Walking Dead.” If it does, it will become cable´s biggest show. The A&E Network, as Duck Commander patriarch Phil Robertson would say, is “Happy, happy, happy.” The show premiered in March 2012 and finished its first cycle with an average

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- Democrat Anthony Weiner said that the new sexting firestorm that set his City Hall campaign reeling last week will in the end make him a stronger mayor and better able to deliver for Staten Island and the rest of the city. "I´m going to be a successful mayor because of it, because it´s going to give me a level of independence," he told the Advance in an exclusive interview. "I´m not constructing a campaign around the approval of my peers. I´m constructing a campaign around the aspirations of my neighbors."

Public Trust: Sixty-one percent polled say President Obama lies "some of the time" or "most of the time" on matters of national importance. Americans have to ask: Why do we let him get away with it? It´s no surprise that a Fox News poll of 1,012 registered voters last week found immense distrust of a president whose main domestic initiative was based on a lie. The shock is that the same poll found his disapproval level down to its lowest since last fall. Asked, "How often do you think Barack Obama lies to the country on important matters?" 37% replied "most of

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Michelle Obama:

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning
