Daily Beast blogger Andrew Sullivan, who seemed to take the ups and downs of President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign very personally, said in his Friday night appearance on HBO’s “Real Time with Bill Maher” that the Republican Party should rebuke conservative talker Rush Limbaugh and “demonize and cut off” the Fox News Channel. “The first conservative who will be the future of that party will be the one that says Rush Limbaugh does not speak for the Republican Party,” Sullivan said. “He is a poison on the discourse, and until they start — you see, the media industrial complex on
Comments: And we hoped that Andrew´s having a husband would make a difference. Silly us...
I´m watching the Third Reich on the history channel right now, Goebbels would really like Andy Sullivan working for him. How did Germany go the way of Hitler, well number one he had outstanding Propagandist.
Meanwhile, everyone and their brother is busy doing a post mortem on what the GOP should be doing going forward - (I hate that word `forward`) - with regards to bringing Hispanic`s, Latino`s and Black`s into their fold, while people like Carville, (aka, Half Man Half Alligator), Sullivan, Maher and Moore preach hate against anyone who does not think like they do.
Like I was saying this morning,these media entities are in the left´s cross-hairs as hate speakers and the left will start coming after them.They´re really mad about Fox being the only newsorg,that tackled the Benghazi lies and cover up.

Had to double check - sounded just like Steve Schmidt - nearly verbatim - and for the very same reason, concern for the Republican Party. Talk about your "platforms for seriousness".
Well, I say we ask all the Hispanics, Blacks and Asians why they´re taking orders from extreme liberal white people like Sullivan, Carville, Pelosi, Boxer, Kerry, Reid, Durbin, and the rest.
And why don´t conservative and religious Republican candidates simply state their religious belief leads me to X position. It may not be your position, but it´s mine and how I get to there. It doesn´t mean I don´t like you, or something, but trust you can respect my position and I respect yours. We may not agree, but that doesn´t mean we hate each other.
Here´s a newflash #27, libtards (aka socialists) hate anyone who stands in the way of their total power and control. hate to break it to ya, but if you aren´t bending over and kissing their boot you are a target.
That is a kind of one-sided approach. Let´s see how this plays out....
1. Thesis 2. Antithesis 3. Synthesis
But suppose either "thesis" or "antithesis" is supressed. How is "synthesis" ever going to be possible?
What happens, is that without critical review of either thesis or antithesis, original errors of either side are not revealed, and the exponential growth of the effects of that original error eventually destroy what was seen at first as an "elegant solution", but in fact was a grave perversion of logic and peer review.
What an idiot Andrew Sullivan is. He really thinks he is relevant to give anybody advice or tell anybody what is what. Andrew Sullivan needs to be demonized and cut off, he is poison on the discourse of civilized society.
I agree, if anyone is poison it is Bill Mahr. Rush uses satire to illustrate his opinions. I´ve listened to Rush, since the Clarence Thomas hearings and have enjoyed his show very much. Mark Levin is the intellectual giant of the conservative movement and Rush uses mocking of the left for their policies that are destroying this country. If not for these men and a few others, we probably would go down the proverbial drain a lot sooner. They fight the good fight for those of us that still honor the constitution.
Somebody show this guy the door. I was curious if this guy was even a citizen... He is not...
Sullivan had a long-expressed desire to become a U.S. citizen, but was barred for many years from applying for citizenship because of his HIV-positive status. Following the statutory and administrative repeals of the HIV immigration ban in 2008 and 2009, respectively, Sullivan announced his intention to begin the process of becoming a permanent U.S. resident and citizen.
In all fairness, as in the Fairness Doctrine, temporarily disabled, any opinion that questions or disagrees with the Obama doctrine should be banned. Isn’t it obvious? We should be not only 99%, as in Philadelphia, but 100% behind our leader. # 42 may be an Obamazombie.
Andrew made a mistake. He´s right about one thing though; there are people who should be "demonized and cut off". He´s too stupid to figure out that those folks work at the NYT, the WaPo, and the alphabet networks. That is, he has met the enemy and it is him.
This guy Andrew Sullivan knows who Rush Limbaugh is but I have no idea who Andrew Sullivan is or looks like or what he does, except I understand he is some kind of far-Left Hate-Blogger? Now I learn he is HIV positive? He must have had some kind of reckless Gay Deviant lifestyle to come down with HIV? He needs to be demonized and cut off from any public discourse as well as any public intercourse for that matter. He is literally a walking, talking virus.
Betcha Sully will support any Republican or Calatumphian even if his name is Limbaugh, if he were to support gay marriage. That is the beginning and end of Sully´s agenda. He thinks with just one part of his anatomy only.
Sorry to tell you this, Andy, but in the United States we have something called the First Amendment that guarantees freedom of speech and freedom of the press. Maybe if you took your citizenship test, you would learn that.
#50--Andy was a conservative blogger until Bush came out in favor of a marriage amendment. Andy then did a 180 and started criticizing Bush relentlessly. He lost his audience and shut down his blog. He has since bounced from Time to Newsweek to the Daily Beast. He is a British citizen who came here to study and never left. His love of Obama makes me question whether the rumors about O´s sexuality are true. As for Andy´s looks, he is a middle-aged and and balding. Like some other balding gay men, he has grown a beard. He is also one of those gay men who don´t like women at all (unlike many who do, as friends).
Andrew´s simple minded, knee jerk in his monolitically characterizing the Right. Did Andrew forget that Elton John sang at Rush´s wedding? There is a variety of opinion and conviction on the Right vis a vis gayness, Andrew. Go soak your head you hysterical twit.
LUNENBURG, Mass. —Investigators say the mother of a Lunenburg teen whose home had racist graffiti sprayed on it last month is a "strong suspect" in the case. According to the search warrant, Isaac Phillip´s mother, Andrea Brazier, replied "OK" when an FBI agent said she was the one who spray painted graffiti on the house. Watch Report "Most of the leads we have followed up throughout the investigation have led back towards the house," said Lunenburg police Lt. Michael Luth. When asked if police considered Brazier a strong suspect, Luth responded, "I would." Court documents also claim Brazier made false statements and then asked
The fight for Christmas took a hit this week when politics bigfooted a troupe of adorable little ballet dancers performing “The Nutcracker.” MSNBC’s Chris Matthews is scheduled to interview President Obama on Thursday night at American University as part of the “Hardball College Tour.” MSNBC approached AU to host the chat, and officials jumped at the chance for a free, hour-long commercial for the university and its students. But the interview, announced Tuesday morning, abruptly kicked the Ballet Petite’s rehearsals of”The Nutcracker” out of AU’s Greenberg Theatre. That didn’t sit well with the ballet school’s staff, teachers and parents who
Well, it’s not like there’s any danger of this stuff crossing the porous border into the US… Tepojaco (Mexico) (AFP) – Mexican authorities scrambled Wednesday to find a truck containing “extremely dangerous” radioactive material used in medical treatment that was stolen by two gunmen two days ago, officials said. The white Volkswagen Worker truck was transporting a teletherapy device containing cobalt-60 when it was stolen Monday in the central Hidalgo state town of Tepojaco, near Mexico City, according to the International Atomic Energy Agency. (Snip)So they found the container, just not the incredibly dangerous material that was in it. The
A fourth student at the University of California Santa Barbara has come down with a strain of meningitis similar to the one that sickened eight Princeton University students in New Jersey, authorities said. The California students began getting sick about three weeks ago, according to a university statement. One student had to have both legs amputated, ABC News has learned. "He´s from my hometown. I hope he is doing well," said David Burkow, another student. "It´s just kind of scary because there is a constant fear." The California school has suspended social events, including sorority and fraternity parties, to avoid
With a ruling by a federal judge on Tuesday that Detroit is eligible to enter bankruptcy, the fate of the city’s art collection — one of the finest in the country — now moves front and center in the legal battle over the city’s future. But the judge, Steven W. Rhodes, questioned for the first time the push by some of the city’s largest creditors to sell paintings and sculpture from the Detroit Institute of Arts, a sale that could generate hundreds of millions of dollars or more. While he did not say specifically that the art should be spared,
WASHINGTON – The National Transportation Safety Board has removed the Association of Commuter Rail Employees as a participant in its investigation into the December 1 fatal derailment of the Metro-North passenger train in the Bronx that killed four people. Organizations designated as parties to investigations sign an agreement to abide by NTSB rules during an investigation, but on Tuesday, the chairman of the union, Anthony Bottalico, spoke to the media and discussed what he thought happened during the derailment and engineer William Rockefeller. “While we value the technical expertise that groups like ACRE can provide during the course of an investigation, it
A truck carrying potentially "extremely dangerous" radioactive material has been stolen in Mexico, the UN atomic watchdog said Wednesday. The International Atomic Energy Agency said the truck was carrying cobalt-60, used for radiotherapy treatment to combat cancer. An IAEA statement Wednesday said the truck was stolen Monday while taking the material to a radioactive waste storage center from the northern city of Tijuana. The IAEA said the heist occurred in Tepojaco, a town near Mexico City, and describes the load as `´extremely dangerous" if damaged or removed from its protective shielding. It said Mexican authorities are searching for the material. The statement provided
The question all week long was this: Who are you going to believe, an illegal alien or the president of the United States of America? Obviously, if it’s a president who once went by an alias, Barry Soetoro, you go with Uncle Omar, 100 percent, no questions asked. And so it was that the White House finally admitted to another, uh, misstatement — despite previous denials, Barack/Barry did sleep on his beloved Uncle Omar’s couch in Cambridge when he first moved here to attend Harvard Law School (speaking of which, we’re still waiting to see the president’s grades and his LSAT scores). But the
More young men in California rise in pitch at the end of their sentences when talking, new research shows. This process is known as "uptalk" or "valleygirl speak" and has in the past been associated with young females, typically from California or Australia.But now a team says that this way of speaking is becoming more frequent among men.The findings were presented at the Meeting of the Acoustical Society of America in California. "We found use of uptalk in all of our speakers, despite their diverse backgrounds in socioeconomic status, ethnicity, bilingualism and gender," said Amanda Ritchart, a linguist at the University of
How do you get your arms around the catastrophe known as Obamacare? Is it even possible? At this point, I’m not sure it is. The list of individual disasters which threaten to ruin one-sixth of the U.S. economy and what has been, up until now, the best healthcare system in the world is exhaustive, and exhausting. The examples I will identify here barely scratch the surface. First but by no means foremost, we have the supposedly new and improved HealthCare.gov. Except it’s not, even the visible part. Stories still abound of people still failing to get in or to get through the enrollment
DAVID CORN: I saw a president who remains frustrated with the political-media culture that he has to work within, and that he´s looking to rally people, students here, and supporters, and people within the media. CHRIS MATTHEWS: But David Corn, you skeptic. He came to us today. He came amongst us. CORN: He´s trying to rally people behind this vision that he´s been promoting for a couple years. FINEMAN: By the way, he did it the end here, today, Chris, not by defending specifics, but by explaining why he´s in the game to begin with. And I don´t know about you, he´s
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced a new five-year strategic plan to improve safety for elderly drivers and passengers. Although they are statistically among the safest on the road, the number of older drivers is increasing dramatically — and with it, that group´s numbers of injuries and deaths. Since 2003, the population of older adults, defined as age 65 and older, has increased by 20% and the number of licensed older drivers increased by 21% to 35 million in 2012, according to NHTSA. Last year, NHTSA reported that 5,560 people older than 65 died and 214,000 were injured
The most curious thing of all about the November jobs report released on Friday was the huge drop in the unemployment rate — and the fact that the Labor Department chose not to disclose that the data going into that figure are under investigation for falsification. On Nov. 19, I broke the news in my column that the Census Bureau, which collects data that goes into the jobless rate on behalf of Labor, had caught one of its enumerators fabricating interviews in 2010. The culprit said back then (and to me during an interview) that he was told to do so by
