"The fact is that (Moulitsas is) not a journalist in terms of someone who knows how to do reporting, someone who reflects balance in what he portrays. To the contrary, he engages in the kind of hyperbole and extreme statements that are represented by that crass and I think offensive statement that he made about those dead people. But you know what? I think that’s just what’s going on in journalism. I think that there’s more and more opinion, less and less people who know how to do the job. All you gotta do is shout, say something on the blog that offends and attacks the other side and suddenly you have the credentials and you’re said to be a journalist. I think it’s a great lie.”
- Liberal journalist, author and reporter Juan Williams on Newsweek magazine hiring DailyKos founded Markos Moulitsas to do a column for them on the upcoming Presidential elections.

We certainly remember all the brouhaha the Left made about former Republican congressman George Allen's "macaca" rant, hey, the "macaca" gaffe pretty much cost Allen an election. Well what happens when a Democrat makes a racist remark? Why, nary a word from your liberal media, of course:
Washington, D.C. - After a Louisiana state representative called a noted local civil rights activist "Buckwheat," Project 21 chairman Mychal Massie is criticizing both the lawmaker for saying it and the media for once again appearing to take a pass on reporting about a liberal politician's racial foible.
Hazel Boykin, a 75-year-old civil rights activist who helped desegregate Louisiana restaurants and schools, helped Democratic State Representative Carla Blanchard Dartez get voters to the polls earlier this month. At the end of a private telephone conversation thanking Boykin for her efforts, Representative Dartez said, "Talk to you later, Buckwheat."
Buckwheat was one of the black characters featured in the "Our Gang" movie shorts of the 1930s and 1940s whose stereotypical image is considered an insult today. Boykin told the Associated Press: "I've never had no one talk to me that way and I consider is a racial slur... I know the meaning of it, it's just like the n-word." Representative Dartez said, "I regret my choice of words," and cited her 93 percent voting record with the legislature's Black Caucus as proof she is not a racist.
"Representative Dartez's comments were offensive and pejorative," said Massie. "There is no way in this day and age that 'Buckwheat' can be construed as anything but an insult, and there is no reason a politician should get a pass based on their record or party affiliation. She should resign her seat."
Massie notes there has been a virtual media blackout regarding Representative Dartez's comment. Even the New Orleans Times-Picayune - the major newspaper in the city located approximately 50 miles from her district - only ran the syndicated Associated Press article about it. This is a sharp contrast to recent international coverage of a similar private phone call in which cable reality star Dwayne "Dog" Chapman of the A&E show "Dog the Bounty Hunter" used the n-word in describing his son's fiancé.
"Dog the Bounty Hunter is a basic cable TV star. Carla Dartez is a lawmaker who can make a real difference in people's lives. Why is the media seemingly not outraged by her remarks? Why is Dog apologizing on 'Hannity and Colmes' and 'Larry King Live' and not her?" asked Massie.

The former Adulterer-in-Chief chimes in with more excuses for his poor wife:
Sorry Slick, but your wife's lackluster showings of late has nothing to do with her gender. It has to do with the fact that the two other candidates for the Democratic nominee for President have not been scared off by a liberal press that has long made Hillary out to be the winner. Ever since she declared herself a candidate for Prez the liberal press has showered Hillary with positive coverage, paving as smooth a road as possible for the chance at making "history", yunno, that "first female president" crap. Yet, showing themselves once again to be hypocrites, the minute Hillary faces some hard questioning, her camp plays the victim card, almost suggesting that Barack Obama and John Edwards just totally back off and let "poor little Hillary" get her chance.
With all the sniping that ensued over Senator Hillary Clinton’s suggestion that her male rivals for the Democratic nomination were “piling on” her during the Oct. 30 debate, you’d think her campaign would’ve retired that theme.
But her strategist-in-chief, Bill Clinton, was at it again today.
“It’s a great time to be a Democrat,” Mr. Clinton told more than 800 students and supporters at Trident Technical College in South Carolina, according to The Associated Press. “Even though those boys have been getting tough on her lately, she can handle it."
Then too is the fact that your wife continues to underestimate the intelligence of the American voter with her double-talk on key issues. The idiot governor of New York just announced that he's dumping his licenses for illegals plan. Why? Because most Americans are concerned about terrorists, saw through Spitzer's stupidity right away and declared themselves against it right away (thank goodness that most Americans aren't liberals!) Instead of taking a stand against this insipid idea, your wife played it cautious. But presidents can't afford to be cautious, they need to make firm decisions or else the electorate loses faith in them. By trying to play both sides of the fence Hillary is showing more and more signs that she can't lead and that puts her at risk of standing for nothing, as well as everything, and then losing.

The state is reportedly paroling far more violent convicts under Governor Eliot Spitzer than his predecessor. According to the Daily News, ten percent of A-1 felons were granted parole this year, compared to a three to five percent parole rate between 2000 and 2005.A parole board spokesman tells the paper that despite the large increase, parole commissioners haven't been directed to release more inmates. And a source close to the governor tells the News that commissioners may just be feeling freer to use their discretion.
The report comes a day after some Republican lawmakers spoke out against Spitzer's plan to offer parole hearings to about one thousand violent felons. The governor is reportedly looking to settle a lawsuit filed by convicts, who say they've been denied hearings because commissioners have only focused on the nature of their crimes.

Birthplace: Santa Monica, CA
Claim To Fame: actor, director and founder of the Sundance Film Festival
Why He’s Insane Liberal of the Week: for using his new film, “Lion for Lambs” to promote anti-Bush, anti-American, left-wing zealotry. In “Lambs” Redford, a longtime Hollywood liberal whose made his fortune here in America, plays a college professor trying to motivate a politically ambivalent student in a flick loaded with typical leftist clichés including an “evil Republican” senator (played by Tom Cruise) with plans to bomb Afghanistan. Yet, despite its star power (Meryl Streep also appears as a cynical liberal news journalist) “Lion for Lambs” has been reviewed by many as so lame and lopsided that it seems destined to bomb just like recent leftist drivel “Rendition” and “In The Valley Of Elah” did. Indeed, the Sundance Kid (who if I recall correctly reneged on his promise to move to Ireland if Bush was elected) is probably too busy flying in one of his high-priced jets to realize that movie goers have long tired of films drenched in idiot liberal propoganda.
