What Media Bias?

Remember the media coverage falsely accusing Tea Partiers of spitting on African-American Congressmen and hurling the "N" word at them? So do I.

Remember the media making claims of violence at Tea Party rallies that never happened? So do I.

Remember the media claiming the Gifford's shooting was somehow linked to conservatives in general and Sarah Palin in particular when the shooter was actually a deranged Bush-hating, anti-war lefty? So do I.

Remember the media coverage of numerous and credible death threats against Wisconsin Republican lawmakers? No, neither did I.

Even some of those on the left are starting to notice.

The ‘What A Maroon’ Award

And now, ladies and gentlemen, the moment you've all been waiting for ... This week's “What A Maroon” award goes to...


The senator is outraged, outraged that dastardly Republicans are even thinking about trimming the bloated federal budget. The GOP, the left-wing Democrat shrilly asserts in her own special way, is on a “V-E-N-D-E-T-T-A”!

That’s right, a vendetta, a “vendetta against health care” and a “vendetta against clean energy.” But there was even worse to come, as she made the most frightening accusation of all — Republicans, she said, have a “vendetta against Elmo.”

Elmo’s afraid!

True, House Republicans did vote to defund public broadcasting, although it’s blatantly left-wing bias probably had more to do with it than a kid’s show. But the good senator has always been adept at demonizing her opponents and skirting inconvenient truths.

“Vendetta against Elmo,” indeed!


In honor of the great American philosopher Bugs Bunny who first coined the phrase, I’ve decided to present the “What A Maroon” award each week to the politician, organization or celebrity who makes the most sand-poundingly stupid statement of recent days.
