It is nothing new for us to cite Martin Bashir (pictured, on left) for insulting language.

A day of disrespect: B. Press, Bachmann, Gingrich, Reid

December 15, 2011 by


Another disappointing day in politics and media with many comments we consider disrespectful. Radio host Bill Press, a liberal, referred to a GOP nomination candidate as, “crazy Ron Paul.” Paul would not qualify as crazy by our reading of the dictionary. It also is disrespectful to those with severe mental disorders and their families. Throwing […]

Best Answer: It may have seemed that Newt Gingrich scored points tonight when he responded to Mitt Romney’s frequent comment that he’s not a career politician by saying that the only reason Romney’s not is that he lost the U. S. Senate race to Ted Kennedy in the 1980’s. However Romney shot back near the […]

At some point, our society will rise up at the polls and say enough to the false and exaggerated rhetoric that shows no respect for the electorate.

CORRECTION- Thoughts on the Iowa GOP debate

August 25, 2011 by


This post originally included a reference to Ron Paul’s height. It was factually incorrect and included inappropriate speculation. We regret the errors. The participants were mostly respectful with the exception of Tim Pawlenty, who, in our opinion, was inappropriate in a comment about Michele Bachmann. We think Ron Paul sounded the best along with Bachmann. […]

Bill Press resorts to name-calling

August 24, 2011 by


Discussing Michele Bachmann’s claim that she can cut gas prices below $2 a gallon and whether her popularity has peaked early in the campaign, Press said, “She’s so crazy, right, that she makes Rick Perry look almost sane.” Asked tonight by MSNBC host Ed Schultz who is more dangerous for America, Perry or Bachmann, he […]
