Of course, very little has been made of the threats of violence against Bristol - including death threats and the delivery of white powder to the DWTS studios - because it doesn't fit the laid-back, inclusive, cuddly image the media likes to project about the left. Had there been threats against a liberal, however, you know somehow the Tea Party would have gotten the blame.
Now, TMZ, the country's greatest social think tank, is taking their swipe at Bristol. A headline on their site read "Bristol Palin Getting Some Tail Before 'Dancing with the Stars' Finale." The real story was less provocative, of course. It was simply a story of what ABC offered in their pre-show buffet for the cast. That included...wait for it...lobster tails. It's a pathetic attempt to scape up some kind of controversy on Bristol, but since the folks at TMZ have sold their souls to Satan long ago, perhaps I should feel sorry for them instead. Perhaps.
After a little digging, I know why I felt a disturbance in the Force with Garten: she's a big-time supporter of liberal causes. She hosted a benefit at her New York home for the Hudson Peconic branch of Planned Parenthood in 2004. This is the same woman who refuses to participate in charity events for The Food Network, even though most of the channel's other show hosts do. When America's biggest baby killer needs to raise some money, however, she's there.
According to an AP story carried by The Dallas Morning News, Cowan then did what any good liberal does: he took his shotgun and shot the television. He then threatened to kill his wife, leading to a standoff with SWAT and his eventual arrest. Those dang liberals. So dangerous and prone to violence, they could make Nancy Pelosi tear up (click here to see that weepy clip again).
With all the focus on new books from President George W. Bush and Sarah Palin recently, I'm sure President Obama is feeling lonely. I thought it would be a great time to remind everyone what we've been missing. Remember this little shout-out to our military? Maybe Obama should stop looking for stories and spend more time learning about the military he commands. The mainstream media tends to overlook such gaffes from Obama, but if this had been W, they would have been all over it.
Perry was there to promote his book, but instead of having a regular, if not thought-provoking conversation, Stewart took every opportunity to take swipes at Perry, at conservatives, and even the state of Texas. Perry seemed unable to match wits with Stewart; it was an awkward interview, to say the least. There was tired rhetoric from Perry and snide remarks from Stewart.
I don't blame Stewart for his actions, it's what he does. He is capable of having a real conversation, but he wouldn't do that with a conservative. I blame Perry, who should have known better, for failing to go in ready to either say something of meaning or defuse Stewart's arguments. He did neither. I wonder why Perry even bothered going on The Daily Show. Was this appearance really going to sell books, or change his image? We all know it is to keep his face on the national stage. If he wants to run for President (and I hope he doesn't), he needs to be able to do better in interviews than this.
Don't get me wrong, I like Perry. I voted for him, and I think he is doing a good, but not perfect, job. It's obvious, however, that he isn't ready to deal with a liberal attack of words and wit.

Obviously, no one bought it, but Biden used the email to ask supporters to send him $3 to help re-elect Democrats and subdue his righteous fury. Gee, I wonder how Crazy Joe is feeling now?
