Howard Kurtz On Fox Showdown:
Keith Ellison ‘Picked The Fight’
While Hannity Was ‘In The Right’

Mediaite, by Andrew Kirell

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/27/2013 9:21:27 PM

In a DailyDownload clip this afternoon, The Daily Beast’s Howard Kurtz and Lauren Ashburn gave their take on Tuesday night’s explosive Fox News showdown between Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) and Sean Hannity. The two praised Hannity’s handling of the situation and blasted Ellison for acting like he did. “This guy came on his show and then tried to filibuster it by yelling at him, saying ‘You’re a terrible journalist,’ ‘You’re the worst journalist,’ ‘You’re a Republican,’ ‘You’re awful,’” Ashburn said of the debate. Kurtz then offered his assessment: “The congressman picked the fight.

Comments:
Wow. How amazing they actually defended Hannity. That was just normal behavior for the obnoxious, disgusting Ellison. Imagine having to be in congress and try to work with someone like him. That´s why nothing gets done and they blame it all on Republicans.

I´ve seen Ellison do this another time. He just doesn´t shut up. Obnoxious. He doesn´t appear to be a very smart guy.

Isn´t the more important question why is the media so important in politics ?

You can´t get politicians to stand up for US in front of a camera, but give them air time for themselves and they continually make a fool of themselves.

I tried to put some quotes in that the "distinguished" Congressman Ellison called his opponent last fall (who had spent 21 years in the Marines, serving two tours of duty in Iraq), but the automatic censors at Lucianne wouldn´t allow it. That´s understandable. Google for yourself and see what type of language this "civil servant" used against someone who dared to challenge him.

The problem with Mr Ellison is that Mr Hannity
has ALWAYS stated exactly what he is and is not. He is NOT a journalist and never pretends to be. He is NOT a Republican and never pretends to be. He is a CONSERVATIVE and a talk show host. I hope that Mr Ellison knows more about what he votes on than he does about Mr Hannity. But I expect he does not.

Ellison is EXACTLY what liberals are today, and behaved EXACTLY how liberals behave.

They are spoiled, obnoxious, petulant brats. They only learn one way. If they´re 2 years old--a hearty swat on the backside. If they´re 32 years old-a sock in the jaw.

As Rush has been saying "Why are the liberals so mad"? They´ve won the election, they have the media kissing their butts, they´ve been able to allow the democrat voters vote more than once for them, they´ve spent us into debt by wasting money and padding their pockets at the same time...

Maybe their gig is up? I don´t know.

Makes one stop and wonder what our country is coming to when someone like Ellison can be elected as a representative. Is the majority of people in his district like him? If so, Lord help us. I remember being very concerned when I heard he was first elected (him being a muzzie).

Ellison showed all the maturity of a teenybopper in an argument with her dad! Quite a stark reflection of the mentality of his Lo Fo constituency of dumbed-down, Media-influenced, spoon-fed, self-absorbed, celebrity-obsessed, Kool-Aid drinking, uninformed, dysfunctional plantation bobble-heads and government-dependant federal teat-sucking parasites.

I watched Ellison do his imitation of a cranky, overtired, probably wet and in need of having his diaper changed toddler in real time on Sean Hannity’s program Tuesday night. On one hand, I enjoyed observing the manner in which a “Progressive” makes his leftist case for all the world to see. On the other hand, Hannity was much much much too polite and gentlemanly and tolerant with his utterly pathetic “guest.” Ellison is typical of what so many liberals possess in the way of logical, reasoned thinking. They possess none whatsoever.

Saw the interview as it unfolded on TV. My first reaction was that Hannity should pull the plug on the Congressman´s microphone, since Mr. Ellison was obviously unable to engage in any sort of intelligent exchange. Then I realized Hannity was right to let the guy scream, yell, insult, (and be just plain wrong) and allow the viewers to see what type of people are representing some districts in Congress.

I´m with #7. Ellison did nothing but help himself with his lofo voters. It doesn´t matter how it plays outside his district. All that counts is that he was giving a wealthy white Republican (as they see it) hell. Far from being a liability, Ellison could use the video in campaign ads.

Ellison and his fellow progressives are on the brink of a meltdown whenever they are challenged with FACTS which are like sunlight to a vampire. His was a pathetic display of the kind childish behavior we expect from a three year old when he is told he can´t have a cookie. If progs couldn´t FEEL, they wouldn´t have an opinion at all.

In re #18 and Rush:

Although Libs have won the White House, control the Senate, have 99.999% of the media in their pockets, etc., until they control 100% of everyone and everything -they won´t be "happy."

Poster # 36 we understand that all too well. I saw this exchange on Fox yesterday and on my way to work this morning the local talkshow host played it. Ellison is your typical liberal democrat politician. Loud, rude, combative, and not too bright. Hannity handed this nutcase the rope and he hung himself perfectly. Democrackheads like Ellison cannot deal with the truth and when confronted with someone who won´t back down and calls them on their B S they get all flustered. You people from Minnesota should feel so proud that you have the first Muslim(nutcase) representing your state. But then again you guys elected fellow IQ standard bearers like Ventura, Frankin, and Dayton so that doesn´t say much does it.

After many years of observation I have come up with one innutable fact. And that is theat liberals, everyone of them, will always cut in, talk over, yell at the top of their voice etc. any time they get into a discussion with a conservative. Happens every time and doesn´t matter who it is or where it´s at. I think it´s in their DNA. Any when the conservative just stops out of coustsey or just tired of hearing them, the libs will believe that they have won the "debate".

1. Who´s this "Ellison" guy? If he´s the Muslim House member who insisted he be sworn-in on a Koran, and who has used a "Muslim" name, when did he change back? Further, if you know Islam, you know Muslims are required, not simply "encouraged," to lie in advancing Islam.

2. "Ellison" is cheek-by-jowl with CAIR and MAS, the "Muslim American Society." In other parts of the world, the MAS is called the Muslim Brotherhood. MAS is a cover. As is CAIR.

3. I´m quite confident that in his heart, "Ellison" sees himself as "representing" the interests of Islam, not of American citizens. Priorities of colonization, y´know.

3. Hannity did a really poor job being a dhimmi. He´s on somebody´s list now.

Your friendly neighborhood columnist has once again run afoul of Facebook’s elusive community standards. Now before you call up the preacher and put me on the church prayer list – let me assure the posting was neither unseemly nor ungentlemanly. This time I was censored for writing something about Rancher Cliven Bundy. I realized I had landed in the Facebook gulag when I tried to post our daily Bible verse. However, I was unable to post anything because Facebook had taken great offense to something I had written. “We removed something your page posted,” Facebook told me in a rather unpleasant message.

Eight Million ´Enrollments,´

Townhall, by Guy Benson    Original Article

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

Rep. Colleen Hanabusa (D-HI) says her constituents are "frustrated and embarrassed" by Hawaii´s failed Obamacare exchange, which cost taxpayers $204 million and signed up only 8,000 people. On Wednesday, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) announced it will launch an investigation into Hawaii´s busted Obamacare program. "This is not a partisan issue, this is an economic issue," said state Sen. Sam Slom. Hawaii Gov. Neil Abercrombie previously predicted "hundreds of thousand of people" would sign up for Obamacare in the President´s home state. On Thursday, President Barack Obama tried to rally Democrats to

Fox News Poll: 49 percent think White

Nearly half of American voters think the IRS targeted conservative groups at the request of the White House, and most want Congress to keep investigating the matter. The latest Fox News poll also finds 69 percent don’t feel President Obama has followed through on his vow to “find out exactly what happened on this.” By a 49-41 percent margin, voters believe the Obama administration “intentionally had the IRS target conservative political groups.” That includes 26 percent of Democrats, 52 percent of independents and 71 percent of Republicans. Meanwhile, 67 percent of voters want Congress to keep investigating the IRS until

Reacting to Sunday´s hate crime at two Jewish centers in Kansas City, Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) and Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y.) introduced today a bill to update the government´s 20-year-old report on hate speech in the media. The Hate Crime Reporting Act of 2014 would examine the role of the Internet and other telecommunications in encouraging hate crimes based on gender, religion, ethnicity, or sexual orientation, and would provide recommendations to address such crimes. On Sunday, the eve of the Jewish Passover, a 73-year-old man shot and killed three people at the Jewish Community Center

Report: Obama Considering Bond
Hearings for Detained Illegal Immigrants

Even though the number of illegal immigrants who have been deported through the courts has dropped by 43% since President Barack Obama took office, the Obama administration may enact administrative changes to allow bond hearings for detained illegal immigrants. According to the Los Angeles Times, this could result in "several thousand" illegal immigrants being released from jails and "could slow the pace of deportations" even more. The Times notes that the White House is scrambling to "ease the concerns of Latino groups and other traditional allies that have turned on President Obama in recent weeks" by trying to brand him

It’s pitiful that we’ve reached this point, but Obama’s account of this chat really is more credible than Cantor’s. O’s position on immigration is straightforward: He wants amnesty badly, partly for legacy reasons and partly because he’s understandably keen to legalize a few million future Democratic voters, and he’s hoping the GOP will go along so that he doesn’t have to do something risky like an executive moratorium on deportations. The GOP leadership’s position is anything but straightforward. They’re convinced that they need to pass some sort of immigration bill before 2016 or else Latinos will hand the White House

President Obama thinks Democrats should not shy away from defending Obamacare. “Democrats should forcefully defend and be proud of the fact that millions of people . . . we’re helping, because of something we did,” he said. The president held a press conference on Thursday to announce that 8 million people have enrolled in Obamacare. He also said that Republicans are going through “stages of grief” over Obamacare. “Anger, denial, and all that stuff — we’re not at acceptance yet,” Obama said.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) intensified his criticism of armed militia members supporting rancher Cliven Bundy, calling them “domestic terrorists.” “They’re nothing more than domestic terrorists,” Reid said Thursday at an event hosted by the Las Vegas Review-Journal, according to the newspaper. “I repeat: what happened there was domestic terrorism.” Reid specifically criticized Bundy supporters for bringing guns and their children to the ranch to defend him against the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). BLM officials and contractors started rounding up Bundy’s cattle last week because of his refusal to pay $1 million in grazing

Fox News’s ‘Outnumbered’

I thought it was smart when Fox News promoted Megyn Kelly, an anchor with the singular ability to generate juicy cable news moments that appeal to the left and the right, to an evening slot. Ratings-wise, that seems to have been a good call for the network. But one of the things that makes Fox such a strong channel, purely from a business perspective, is its ability to develop new talent and new concepts. And the show the network dreamed up to replace Kelly’s in daytime has a flair of evil genius: In “Outnumbered,” a panel of women will debate

“We should be afraid of sharia law” in America, and Muslims here who want to practice sharia should go back to where they came from, “to those nations that recognize sharia law,” said Rev. Franklin Graham, head of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. In a recent interview with the Charlotte Observer, Graham was asked, “Some say you demonize Islam, and Christians in this country have opposed building a mosque or are worried about Sharia law. Isn’t it –” Graham, who oversees the international Christian aid group Samaritan’s Purse, said, “We should be afraid of Sharia law. We should be absolutely

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

With Easter soon approaching, the Rev. Al Sharpton on Wednesday drew parallels between the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the resurrection of President Obama’s political career. Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,

The cash infusion by the federal government is actually going to help the city pay pensions, even though they´re playing a kind of shell game with the money. As for "blight removal," perhaps they could start with city hall. Reuters: Michigan officials and President Barack Obama´s Administration are discussing a plan to free up $100 million in federal money to aid Detroit´s retired city workers, the Detroit Free Press reported on Tuesday. Citing two people familiar with the talks, the newspaper said the talks were centered around federal money flowing to Michigan for blight removal. Under the plan, $100 million

Climate change causing fish to

Climate change’s latest casualty appears to be fish — or more specifically, fish brains — as researchers say the carbon dioxide that’s being absorbed into the ocean is causing the scaly creatures to lose their survival instincts. In other words, the fish are losing their minds, The Daily Mail reported. The acid from atmospheric carbon dioxide seeps into sea waters, dissolves and ultimately lowers the pH balance, researchers said. The acidic waters then hamper the fishes’ sensory systems, so they’re not able to distinguish between smells any longer, the scientists went on. When the acid levels get really high, the fish lose their
