MSNBC edits out
Lindsey Graham joke

Politico, by Dylan Byers

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 11/28/2012 3:52:00 PM

MSNBC´s Joe Scarborough and John Heilemann broke out in laughter on "Morning Joe" today after Heilemann made a joke that seemed to suggest Sen. Lindsey Graham was effeminate — but when the conversation was rebroadcast in the 8 a.m. hour, the remark was edited out. With Sen. Joe Lieberman leaving the senate, Scarborough noted that Sens. Graham and John McCain had brought in Sen. Kelly Ayotte as its newest member in the Republican trio dubbed "the three amigos." "They need a third amigo at all times," Heilemann said.

Well, he is...but they didn´t take it out because it was disrespctful. I think they edited it out because they were afraid they would be labeled "homophobes" or something similar.

I am not a Lindsey Graham fan, nor do I think he is effeminate.....every poor guy who remains a batchelor is suspect. If he is assured of his masculinity, it may bother him for a second...but then he moves on to the pretty girl nearby.

If a Republican had made the remark, it would be called bay bashing, hate speech and worse, and we would be hearing about it nonstop until the 2014 elections. But since it was a lib on MSNBC, I´m betting this is the last time we ever hear of this incident.

Herb Kohl, retiring senator from Wisconsin has never been married. His replacement, Tammy Baldwin, is openly gay.

Libs can make gay jokes the way Blacks use the N word. No repercussions at all. Libs are true homophobes and racists and they hide behind the word progressive as they project their self hate onto others. Pathetic bunch.

I live in Grahams home town, we have mutual friends. At social events, I have seen Graham with a lot of hot looking women, never with a male and I have no reason whatsoever to doubt his maleness.....perhaps he is just smarter than many of us.

The CDC said in a statement Friday that another 22 crew members also are ill, with people reporting vomiting and diarrhea. Authorities said it´s not yet clear what is causing the illness.

It’s mourning in America again, this time in Columbia, Maryland…located about halfway between Baltimore and Washington, DC in suburban Maryland. All told, three are confirmed dead, including the shooter. Four are reported injured. We still don’t know if the two victims were targeted or randomly taken.

Call me a cockeyed optimist but many of the recent reports about our energy resources and discoveries in medical advances conjure up visions of an America enjoying low gas and energy prices; low unemployment, high wages and low cost medical treatments. None of these changes will be possible, however, unless we have a government willing to allow them. American citizens (legitimate citizens, not just residents) can vote to elect a government that is not beholden to special interest donors and lobbyists. While this sounds unlikely at the moment, it is not impossible especially if the comatose voters who got us

The Best Media Mugshots

The release of Justin Bieber’s mugshot once again reminds us just how fascinating these little pieces of celebrity photography can be. Does the person under arrest have the presence of mind to flash their signature smile, as Bieber evidently did, or are they so far off the deep end that they lose all sense of vanity and simply succumb to their new reality? To examine this phenomenon, below is a look back at some of the most remarkable mugshots from prominent media figures over the last several decades, for too many of whom were arrested in Florida.

Cuomo´s Place
Weekly Standard, by Peter Wehner    Original Article
Posted By: Drive- 1/24/2014 12:18:25 PM     Post Reply
At the 1992 Democratic National Convention, the pro-life Democratic governor of Pennsylvania, Robert Casey, was barred from speaking. The message was if you are pro-life, you have no place in the Democratic party. The new attitude of the Democratic party, at least as represented by New York’s Governor Andrew Cuomo, is if you are pro-life, you have no place in a blue state. During a January 17 interview with Susan Arbetter of WCNY’s “The Capitol Pressroom,” Cuomo, angry at Republican opposition to his agenda, offered his critique of the GOP. “Who are they?” Cuomo demanded to know. Are they wise, reasonable, and

De Blasio should fix the streets

No doubt Mayor de Blasio was relieved to beat it out of town Thursday and leave behind inconvenient questions about the botch of this week’s snowstorm. Plainly he is more comfortable on a stage in Washington, where he declared to his fellow mayors that it’s their job “to address the root causes of inequality.” Now, this week’s snowstorm was not on the scale of the one that so damaged Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s reputation in 2010, much less the one that forever tarnished John Lindsay many decades earlier. But it carries a warning especially apt for a man who views himself as

Reloading the firing squad

Has the left’s attempt to use the lethal-injection process to ban the death penalty backfired? Consideration of firing squads for implementing the death penalty is not a fringe issue and would bring back the humaneness the left claims it wants in the process. As often as I can, I laud the importance, value and decency of the death penalty. As a feminist, I’ve spent a great deal of my adult life as an advocate for women, educating on violence against women and agitating for justice for women in a system that far too often forgets the victims on the receiving end

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio emphatically backed New Governor Andrew Cuomo’s controversial remarks that “extreme” conservatives – which he defined as being pro-life, second amendment advocates, or supporters of traditional marriage – “have no place in the state of New York.” “I stand by that 100 percent,” de Blasio told reporters at the U.S. Conference of Mayors in Washington, D.C. on Thursday. “I agree with Governor Cuomo’s remarks. I interpret his remarks to say that an extremist attitude that continues the reality of violence in our communities or an extremist attitude that denies the rights of women does not

Gohmert Blames ‘the Left’

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) appeared on Fox & Friends on Thursday where he attacked “the left” and various left-leaning news outlets for what he said was an effort to misrepresent comments he made on the House floor about single mothers and rampant welfare fraud among young women. Gohmert told Fox host Brian Kilmeade “thank God for Fox News” for correcting the record. “We’re seeing more and more young women, single women coming before me, single moms, charged with welfare fraud,” Gohmert said on the House floor recently. Gohmert told Kilmeade that his comments were misconstrued. “The left tried to say I was

Hoboken Mayor Is Said

Federal authorities in New Jersey have interviewed several witnesses who said the mayor of Hoboken told them in May about a state official’s threat to withhold hurricane recovery funds if the mayor did not support a development project favored by the governor, people briefed on the matter said on Wednesday. The statements by the witnesses, two of whom are aides to the mayor, Dawn Zimmer, support the account she gave to federal prosecutors on Sunday, and the interviews suggest that prosecutors and the Federal Bureau of Investigation have moved swiftly to investigate her accusations. The aides said she had told them about

They will look like two giant white blimps floating high above I-95 in Maryland, perhaps en route to a football game somewhere along the bustling Eastern Seaboard. But their mission will have nothing to do with sports and everything to do with war. The aerostats — that is the term for lighter-than-air craft that are tethered to the ground — are to be set aloft on Army-owned land about 45 miles northeast of Washington, near Aberdeen Proving Ground, for a three-year test slated to start in October. From a vantage of 10,000 feet, they will cast a vast radar net from

Should the IRS decide whether

The IRS is good at a lot of things — sending out tax refunds, giving tax credits for child-care expenses and deductions for charitable contributions, and helping taxpayers file their income tax returns for free. But one thing the IRS probably isn’t very good at is deciding whether or not a woman has been raped. That’s why some provisions of the “No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion Act” don’t make a whole lot of sense. H.R. 7, which is sponsored by Rep. Christopher Smith (R-N.J.), would change the tax code so that individuals may only deduct medical expenses related to abortion in cases

Marijuana makes you stupid. Nobody wants to acknowledge the obvious fact, but that’s what this whole legalization debate is all about. That’s why most of the candidates for governor, of both parties, have come out against legalization, even if they have to obfuscate why they’re opposed to the Colorado-ization of Massachusetts. After all, the pols can’t offend that pivotal ganja-American voting bloc, assuming they can remember to vote in November. It’s left to comedians like Jay Leno Thursday night to poke around the truth: “Doctors warn that pot smoking impairs young people’s thinking, which of course makes them much more likely to sign up

America is set for the coldest month of the century as weather forecasters predict yet another freezing blast of Arctic air - putting Super Bowl Sunday in jeopardy. Teams have been warned to stay on high alert for changes to the scheduling of the first Super Bowl to be played in an open-air stadium. Temperatures have already hit record lows, at times making parts of the U.S. colder than the North Pole, and are expected to plunge in the coming days. The timing could not be worse for one of the biggest global sporting events, which will be exposed to

The Republican Party has a great opportunity to re-gain control of the country, but it must seize the day, U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina said Saturday night. The GOP is poised to win back a majority in the Senate and keep its advantage in the House in Congressional elections this fall, Graham said. [Snip] Graham, who is up for re-election, is facing GOP primary challengers state Sen. Lee Bright of Spartanburg, Orangeburg attorney Bill Connor, Upstate businessman Richard Cash and Citadel graduate and Lowcountry public relations businesswoman Nancy Mace. They accuse Graham of not being a true conservative.

AUSTIN, Texas -- Texas started a trend by making most of its high school students tackle algebra II. But eight years later, the state often watched for education policy is abandoning the requirement. The move is being praised by school districts for affording them more flexibility. But some policy experts are nervous because nearly 20 states have since followed Texas´ lead in requiring the advanced math course. Supporters say fewer curriculum mandates give students more time to focus on vocational training for high-paying jobs that don´t necessarily require a college degree.

Stephen Hawking has produced a "mind-bending" new theory that argues black holes do not actually exist - at least not in the way we currently perceive them. Instead, in his paper, Information Preservation and Weather Forecasting for Black Holes, Hawking proposes that black holes can exist without 'event horizons', the invisible cover believed to surround every black hole.During a previous lecture, 'Into the Black Hole', Hawkins described an event horizon as the boundary of a black hole, "where gravity is just strong enough to drag light back, and prevent it escaping".
“Falling through the event horizon, is a bit like going over Niagara Falls in a canoe", he said. "If you are above the falls, you can get away if you paddle fast enough, but once you are over the edge, you are lost. There's no way back.

Amazon Prime is like crack, people warn me in hushed, cautionary tones. Once you try it, you’re hooked. I personally have not signed up for Amazon’s premiere, super-duper, fancy-dancy, wave-o’-the-future membership program, even though I’m a frequent customer. But I’m fascinated by the transformation people talk about once they do. “Oh, you’ll see,” they tell me, “you’ll see.” On its face, Prime offers two simple things: Free two-day shipping on most purchases, and access to streaming movies and TV shows. All for $80 a year. Whether or not people need two-day shipping, a few things seem to happen once they

Attempting to reverse sagging approval ratings, President Obama plans to continue his pointed pitch to members of Congress in his annual State of the Union speech Tuesday night -- that he will use his executive power to take action on his own to help reduce income inequality in the country. White House communications aides have spent the past week saying Obama plans to hit this theme in the speech, and on Saturday they offered a bit more information. Dan Pfeiffer, White House communications director, sent out an email Saturday to supporters saying Obama´s message Tuesday night can be summed up

The number of people enrolled in private health insurance under Obamacare has soared by more than one-third in recent weeks to around 3 million, according to government data released on Friday. Marilyn Tavenner, administrator of the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), announced the preliminary tally in a blog posting. She forecast that enrollment through new federal and state health insurance marketplaces would continue to grow in coming weeks as a public outreach campaign accelerates. The new data adds to evidence that President Barack Obama´s administration has turned the corner on enrollment after a botched October 1 launch.

The Texas governor race catapulted onto the national scene earlier this week, when an undercover video revealed supporters of Democratic candidate Wendy Davis mocking Republican rival Greg Abbott’s use of a wheelchair. Battleground Texas, the group of Davis supporters caught making the comments, naturally denied the video’s validity. Additionally, Davis issued a statement condemning the language used in the video. In an interview with Megyn Kelly, Abbott, who is the attorney general of Texas, responded to the ordeal: Denigrating the disabled is unworthy of Texas….What Texans really look at is the depth of character.
