Uh oh, a double dog dare!

I got this challenge on Facebook from a life-long friend.  He has a great sense of humor and thick skin, but sadly suffers from a debilitating case of Liberalism. Out of kindness, I gave him two chances to withdraw the dare, but he persisted (they are a stubborn lot!).

Neil, I dare you to post this on your blog. No, I double dog dare you. Zombies Walk The Halls Of Congress : NPR.

The article highlighted Democrats and Republicans who stayed in Congress after scandals.  I wonder why NPR didn’t go after examples like this more aggressively?  I mean, sweet Maxine is still there.  They could shine a bigger light on this one:

Other survivors? There’s Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA). During the fiscal meltdown, she arranged a meeting with the Treasury Department for a bank her husband owned stock in.

The article forgot to note that Republicans are more likely to resign and more likely to be pressured to resign from their party.  Then again, you can only be a hypocrite if you have standards to begin with.  Witness Chris Matthews’ claim that the real problem with Weiner is that “backwards” religious people disagree with his behavior — meaning that “progressive” people think there was nothing really wrong with a Congressman exposing himself to bribes and ridicule  in sending R- and X-rated pictures of himself to strangers and then lying to friends and enemies alike in a pathetic cover-up attempt.  His real crime was getting caught.  Hey, at least Matthews clearly reveals his “morality.”

Also note that the NPR article “forgot” to mention Bill Clinton staying in office after abusing his authority with an intern, exposing himself to the possibility of blackmail, trying to destroy her life (and he would have succeeded if not for the infamous dress) and lying under oath.  Yet while Nixon became synonymous with deception and scandal, Clinton’s punishment is making $100,000 per speech and having a wife who is Secretary of State.

Back to the dare: My friend’s premise was that I’d never post something from NPR that showed that they were balanced.  But the grand irony is if they were truly unbiased then he could send me their links all day, every day.  But as it is he found a token piece that was balanced and was so shocked and thrilled that he launched into his double dog dare without realizing that he was proving my point, not his.  

Whether NPR is biased or not (and of course they are wildly biased, or my extreme Liberal friend wouldn’t be such a loyal fan), they shouldn’t get government funding.

There you go, my friend.  Hope you’re happy!

Roundup

Chris Matthews of MSNBC fantasizes about Rush Limbaugh being murdered.  But Rush is the mean guy, of course.

Other media outlets smear Rush with lies from Wikiquote and elsewhere.  Great fact-checking, guys.  But they are the real journalists, eh?

Great point by Red State:

You know, it says something pathetic about the left that Rush Limbaugh has been on the air 3 hours a day, 49 weeks a year, for over 20 years and they have to resort to made up quotes to hurt him and his business endeavors.

Oh, and here’s some real racist quotes by Democrats.  If the MSM grandstanded on them the same way they did on fake quotes for Limbaugh that would be an improvement.

We’ve got CNN fact-checking Saturday Night Live skits but not transparently false quotes attributed to Rush Limbaugh.  It is a self-parody.

P.S. No, I don’t listen to Rush’s show.  Never have, despite the assumptions of most Liberals I come across.  But I know media bias when I see it.  Rush is obviously part entertainer, but from everything I’ve read he is more of a journalist than anyone in the CNN / MSNBC / etc. crowd.  For example, Rush knew about the ACORN scandal and publicized it before Charles Gibson and the rest of the MSM.

Richard Dawkins and the Recurrent Laryngeal Nerve in giraffes — Dawkins “knows” that no intelligent designer would have ever done that.  I imagine that Dawkins already has a list of excuses to use when it is determined that there are good reasons for the nerve to be designed as it is. Just as the evolutionists did when it turned out that Junk DNA was not so junky, they’ll spin it to support evolution regardless of what their theory allegedly predicted or supported.  And it is so predictable and almost cute when Dawkins’ acolytes run around sharing their new “proof” of evolution and “rebuttal” of ID. 

Ann Coulter nails the Afghanistan situation and Obama’s duplicity.  A few snippets:

What Obama really needs to do is: Invent a time machine, go back to the 2008 presidential campaign and not say, over and over and over again, that Afghanistan was a “war of necessity” while the war in Iraq was a “war of choice.” (Oh, and as long as you’re back there, ditch Van Jones, Valerie Jarrett and that gay “school safety” czar.)

But Democrats couldn’t care less about military strategy — at least any “strategy” that doesn’t involve allowing soldiers to date one another. To the extent you can get liberals to focus on national security at all, you will find they are rooting against their own country.

Any fanatic who hated the Great Satan, owned an overnight bag and was not already working for The New York Times was lured across the border into Iraq … to be met by the awesome force of the U.S. military. Bush chose the battlefield that made the best flytrap for Islamic crazies and also that was most amenable to regime change.

Brave Iranian students who protested the tyrant Ahmadinejad did so because of Iraq — and then they stopped because of Obama’s indifference. Sadly for them, America’s foreign policy will now be based on a calculus of political correctness, not national security.
