OK, folks - time to spin that airlock wheel and enter the iso chamber of horrors. Don't worry - it won't hurt - much.
First up - for whom the bell trolls!
Bob Woodward trolled us The Daily Caller ^ | 3/28/13 | Matt K. Lewis

Twitter exploded last night, after Bob Woodward revealed that White House official had warned him he would “regret” saying Obama had moved the goal posts on sequestration.
Predictably, conservatives latched onto this, as it confirmed our suspicion about the Obama Administration’s “Chicago-style” of politics. A lot of mainstream journalists bought into this, too — reflexively believing anything the great Bob Woodward says.
Of course, Woodward (who was expert at trolling for publicity before the internet even existed), benefits greatly from the publicity (nothing sells books like controversy).
To: Nachum; All
No, Woodward did not troll us.
What is being lost in all of this, is that Woodward got about a 30 minute earful from the White House, and that earful wasn’t whispered sweet nothings, either.
And Lanny davis and Fournier have been on the receiving end, too.

“Nice career ya gots dere Bob. Beez a shame what anythin’ wuz ta happen ta it...”
It’s the Chicago way.
I don’t think that it is the Chicago way, actually, I think it is Hillary’s revenge.
Watch all of those who are loyal to her line up against the Obamas.
Operation Chaos II - electric boogaloo!
Trotting Michelle out everywhere was always going to make her annoyed.
To: Laissez-faire capitalistHe did troll us. After I read the emails... I was like... BFD.
The moral of the story is: never trust a left wing partisan hack. He appeared to change his stripes, but that was so he could get some air time from our news channels.16 posted on Thursday, February 28, 2013 3:49:57 PM by VictoryGal (Never give up, never surrender! REMEMBER NEDA)..
To: NachumSour grapes Matt?
No. Just a sensible analysis of the facts.
When I saw conservatives start to drool over Woodward, I suspected we were being played. He probably sold 10,000 books from people who wouldn't have considered it before his big "break" from the administration.
Colin Powell Slams ‘Idiot Presentations’ by Some Republicans, Urges GOP Leaders to ‘Speak Out’

Colin Powell Slams ‘Idiot Presentations’ by Some Republicans, Urges GOP Leaders to ‘Speak Out’
In an interview with ABC’s Diane Sawyer and George Stephanopoulos during ABC’s special inauguration day coverage this morning, former Secretary of State Colin Powell lashed out at people in the Republican Party who spent the last four years spreading “birther nonsense” and other “things that demonize the president,” calling on GOP leaders to denounce such talk — publicly.
“Republicans have to stop buying into things that demonize the president. I mean, why aren’t Republican leaders shouting out about all this birther nonsense and all these other things? They should speak out. This is the kind of intolerance that I’ve been talking about where these idiot presentations continue to be made and you don’t see the senior leadership of the party say, ‘No, that’s wrong.’ In fact, sometimes by not speaking out, they’re encouraging it. And the base keeps buying the stuff.“And it’s killing the base of the party. I mean, 26 percent favorability rating for the party right now. It ought to be telling them something. So, instead of attacking me or whoever speaks like I do, look in the mirror and realize, ‘How are we going to win the next election?”
So Colon Bowel sees no problem that all of Obastard’s records are sealed?
The only thing I agree with is that birtherism is nonsense.
Suspect that he’s auditioning to be msnbc’s second al sharpton.
Colin Powell looked into himself and asked: “m I American or Black?”
He not only decided that question needed to be asked (it doesn’t) he answered in the latter when he voted and now speacks 100% based on the latter.
Shut up Colin, you damn racist.
Someone needs to tell this racist idiot to leave the Republican party, that he is not welcome. Sick of these Obama Republican ass kissers.
If Powell were honest he would change his political registration and stop pretending to be a Republican.
If Republicans had any testicles, they’d kick this rat bastard out of the party!
Sarah Palin Out At Fox News Channel
mediaite ^ | 1/25/13 | Noah Rothman

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin and Fox News Channel are parting ways, according to a report in Real Clear Politics. After three years as a paid contributor for the channel, FNC and the former Republican vice presidential nominee have decided to cut ties.
A source close to Palin told Real Clear Politics that it was the governor’s decision not to renew their contract.
*“It’s my understanding that Gov. Palin was offered a contract by FOX, and she decided not to renew the arrangement,” the source close to Palin told RCP. “She remains focused on broadening her message of common-sense conservatism across the country and will be expanding her voice in the national discussion.”************************
How long till they offer a slot to Al Gore?
Good for her. I don’t watch them anymore. Nothing there left to watch.
I would imagine that ALL the MSM news channels will carry this tonight as it is an opportunity to “Gloat over the corpse” of what they think is Sarah Palin’s dead career...
To: svcw; onyx
I think we’ll be seeing a lot more of Mrs. Palin over
the next few years.
"Not surprised. Fox News is pretty much has become center-left."
Conservatives with more than two active brain cells left FoxNews in 2007, when they swung to The Mulatto Messiah and the Left.
Are we talking about the same FOX news? And "Mulato Messiah"? Why not just call him an octaroon and be done with it?
Palin is not going to be on the same panel as Dennis Kookcinich (a new Hire at FN), and she sees what we all have seen in the State-Run-Media, including FN.
The contract was probably for less. This is no victory for Palin. Even though there are those trying to pretend it is.
Palin has been out of the loop a long time now.
They just renewed with Carl Rove through 2016, and now this?
To: Jane Long
I may be one of the few, I agree with Palin on lots but when she quit as Gov. due to the “press” she quite being a viable candidate to me.
She can be a leader in many ways but not a candidate.
you may all now yell and flame me but, if you cant stand the attack press of ALASKA I have doubts about how you will fair(sic) in DC. (maybe as Senator as the one from there just went stupider)..To: Bidimus124 I may be one of the few, I agree with Palin on lots but when she quit as Gov. due to the “press” she quite being a viable candidate to me. ...
Agreed. It is apparent to me that she has not invested her time in becoming more informed. I wish her and her family well. She is great as a cheerleader, and I mean that positively, but she does not have gravitas. The media crucified Gingrich. I don't see her overcoming them in a campaign.
I’m sorry but you are clueless!!! Sarah didn’t resign because of the press, she resign because the democrats were trying to bankrupt her by filling frivilous and fake ethical charges against her. She said that the time to personally defend herself legally well over 20 charges and more that were coming was taking a toll on the state business. The Republicans there hated her and didn’t want to come to her aid either. She sacrifice(sic) herself so that the State could move forward. You are embarrassing
Sarah had been getting lots of tweets on twitter from people telling her to leave Fox..ever since they hired Kucinich it was pretty obvious the direction Fox was going..she made the right choice by leaving
Herman Cain Joins Fox News
newser.com ^ | Feb 15, 2013 | Associated Press
Posted on Saturday, February 16, 2013 8:00:04 AM by MozillaWell, Fox News needed to fill the void left by Sarah Palin's absence ... so the network hired Herman Cain as a contributor, it announced today. Cain, the former president and CEO of Godfather's Pizza, will also contribute to the Fox Business Network. He says he's looking forward to the job because it is "an opportunity to be one more voice for intelligent thinking in America." Fox has been shuffling its contributor lineup since the election, also recently hiring Dennis Kucinich and Scott Brown.***************************************
What difference, at this point, does it make?
Erudition by sound bite is impossible.
No one who should hear him will be listening, anyway...
Yep. Interesting move, but I am not a fan of Mr Cain and as a replacement for Boortz, he sucks...
Herman Cain endorses Gang of 8 illegal alien amnesty plan - and says ‘it’s not amnesty’ - and boom he gets a slot on FoxNews. What a, um, surprise...
Stopped watching FNC, glad that I did with this addition. Does he still have his “999 Plan”? He was in way over his head. When he denide(sic) having something on the side Ms. White, I knew that he was guilty. You see, back in the day, a “High Yellow Woman”, got and received all of the attention.13 posted on Saturday, February 16, 2013 10:08:49 AM by Capt_Hank (btu's...kcal's...to kJ's, but my activation energy is still high.)..

Herman Cain was never, ever, ever meant to host a radio talk show. It's painful to listen to him, IMO.15 posted on Saturday, February 16, 2013 10:29:13 AM by Scoutmaster (I've fixed my problem with procrastination; just wait and see.)..
