Went To a Joint Session of Congress and a Town Hall Meeting Breaks Out!

Sitting in front of the TV tonight, I thought I was watching President Barack Obama address a rare joint session of Congress about health care … but guess what … a townhall meeting broke out!

You lie!

The incident came directly after Obama said, “There are also those who claim that our reform effort will insure illegal immigrants. This, too, is false. The reforms I’m proposing would not apply to those who are here illegally.”

South Carolina Republican Rep. Joe Wilson forgot he was not at a town hall meeting on health care and shouted, “You lie!”

Wilson’s outburst caused Obama to pause briefly before he went on with his speech. Overhead in the visitors’ gallery, first lady Michelle Obama shook her head from side to side, according to AP reports.

Wilson’s shout drew immediate condemnation from both sides of the aisle, ultimately leading him to apologize.

Rogue CNN in the tank with anti-Palin crowd

CNN Headline: Palin’s ‘going rogue,’ McCain aide says

Several McCain advisers have suggested to CNN that they have become increasingly frustrated with what one aide described as Palin “going rogue.”

Hmmmm… “several” McCain advisers have suggested? But only “one aide” described? How convenient!

McCain sources say Palin has gone off-message several times, and they privately wonder whether the incidents were deliberate. They cited an instance in which she labeled robocalls — recorded messages often used to attack a candidate’s opponent — “irritating” even as the campaign defended their use. Also, they pointed to her telling reporters she disagreed with the campaign’s decision to pull out of Michigan.

Off-message and deliberate? Robocalls are irritating and McCain pulling out of Michigan prematurely? Say, it ain’t so! My gosh, how “rogue”! It used to be saying something like that was factual (robocalls) and just a disagreement (Michigan)…now it’s rogue?!?

Hey CNN, I heard that Biden didn’t agree with what the DNC served him for breakfast this morning? I think he said it should have been eggs and pancakes instead of eggs and toast? Now THAT’S rogue!

CNN, you are a rogue media outlet, hell bent on breaking from journalistic integrity!


Joe Six-Packs Team with Hockey Moms

TheScroogeReport Blog Poll: Can Team Joe Six-Pack/Hockey Mom Defeat Obama Nation?

“It’s time that normal Joe Six-pack American is finally represented in the position of vice presidency,” Sarah Palin told radio talk show host Hugh Hewitt recently.

During the Vice Presidential debate, Palin said: “Let’s commit ourselves just every day American people, Joe Six-Pack, hockey moms across the nation, I think we need to band together and say never again.”

Several questions come to mind…

How big a voting block is the Joe Six-Pack/Hockey Mom contingent?

Are the JSHMs strong enough to help defeat Obama Nation?

How do Obama supporters counter the aggressive, appealing nature of Joe Six-Pack and Hockey Mom?

And finally…

What is your cringe factor (if you have one) at the mere mention of Sarah Palin, Joe Six-Pack, and Hockey Mom?

Note: I have no cringe factor on this one….only a big smile!

I look forward to hearing from you!


Palin/Biden Debate “Moderator” in the Tank for Obama

Michelle Malkin shines light on PBS anchor Gwen Ifill, who will moderate Thursday’s only vice presidential debate. Try as Ifill might to deflect questions about her impartiality, her biases — and her conflict of interest — are clear.

She’s so far in the tank for the Democrat presidential candidate, her oxygen delivery line is running out. – Michelle Malkin
