Weekly roundup

Media bias?  What media bias?  The NY Times is over 500 times more likely to refer to Hillary Clinton as Mrs. than Ms. than they are Sarah Palin.  And they are 156 times as likely to refer to Clinton with her title of Senator than they are to refer to Palin as Governor.

Searching the New York Times shows the following results: 
Mrs. Clinton found 40,400 times 
Ms. Clinton found 909 times 
Senator Clinton/Sen. Clinton found 23,360 times 
Hillary Clinton found 21,500 times

Mrs. Palin found 297 times 
Ms. Palin found 3,370 times 
Governor Palin/Gov. Palin found 1,067 times 
Sarah Palin found 154,000 times

I used to think it was unfair that the media spent such disproportionate time dissecting her record and ignoring Obama’s, then I realized why it wasn’t so illogical: She has a much broader record to review.

Obama wants change?  I kinda like the zero terrorist attacks for the last 7 years, as Ann Coulter reminds us.  Like him or not, Bush did what he thought was right and not what was popular. 

Christopher Hitchens is a smart guy, but makes many logical mistakes when debating God.  Here’s a good answer to this question that Hitchens tries to use as some sort of trump card.

Name one moral action performed by a believer that could not have been done by a nonbeliever.

The short answer is that he sets up a question that he can’t lose, because he’ll define morality however he likes.  If we name an act such as worshiping God, he’ll simply say he doesn’t find it to be moral. 

Michelle Malkin on the Four Stages of Conservative Female Abuse

There’s something about outspoken conservative women that drives the left mad. It’s a peculiar pathology I’ve reported on for more than 15 years, both as a witness and a target. Thus, the onset of Palin Derangement Syndrome in the media, Democratic circles and the cesspools of the blogosphere came as no surprise. They just can’t help themselves.

Liberals hold a special animus for constituencies they deem traitors. Minorities who identify as social and economic conservatives have left the plantation and sold out their people. Women who put an “R” by their name have abandoned their ovaries and betrayed their gender. As female Republican officeholders and female conservative public figures have grown in number and visibility, so has the progression of Conservative Female Abuse. The astonishing vitriol and virulent hatred directed at GOP Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is the most severe manifestation to date.

My $0.02: What a perverse form of feminism – if you don’t push for the unlimited right to kill your unborn children then you aren’t a real woman.

I would have given Obama the benefit of the doubt on his “pig on a lipstick” idiom if I didn’t know he usually uses teleprompters and that it was scripted.  The best case for him is that he has a speech writer who couldn’t anticipate how it would get misinterpreted.  But that is stretching things.

My bigger beef with him is that he has played the race card over and over and now acts shocked that people would “misinterpret” what he said.  It isn’t the color of his skin that bothers me, it is the lack of thickness.

Here’s a great ad highlighting Mr. Hope & Change’s failed strategy:

Obama and friends – what a crew!  This is real and scary.
