    How can this rag stay solvent? I just returned a Newsweak subscription solicitation indicating that I would be interested if it were softer and came on a roll.

    How can we make the “Trigger” conspiracy as career poisoning as the “Birther” conspiracy?

  • Charlie

    Sounds like Newsweek is a little desperate for readers. I wonder if they will make it to November?

  • Eric Givler

    You want classy? The low life said that when he saw Palin’s tweet he had an ‘orgasm.’ What a total loser. Double down on being a political hack and a dung beetle.

    In a 2008 article for The Daily Beast, pointed to the events surrounding the birth and questioned its validity. According to Palin’s memoir “Going Rouge,” Palin managed to finish a campaign speech and take two flights all between the time she started having contractions and eventually gave birth. From this Sullivan concluded:

    “So she is either a self-serving drama queen who didn’t realize her story would imply she put her child – and many others on the planes – at great risk and then winged it to make her story more plausible; or she is a fantastic hoaxer and liar at a world class meshugana level that, at some point, will make Weinergate look like a damp squib.”

    Palin immediately denied the claim, and after photographs of a pregnant Palin emerged, Sullivan ultimately conceded, though he did issue a follow-up today on his blog. In it, Sullivan writes that all he wanted was “some basic evidence for her insane story…”

    He added: “Of course, no response to the substance. She doesn’t do substance. Neither, it seems, does much of the rightwing blogosphere.”

    Looks like this feud is just starting to heat up again.

    So like this battle will go on for sometime to come.

    And there is a very good chance Palin will continue to set the record straight. Time for more of this with Public figures. Time to set all the records straight.

    Also, investigate Obama and his background a bit more thoroughly. I just appears there are more things about him that the left has been covering up.

  • Patty

    Newsweek has had financial difficulties for sometime now. They are not only a loser magazine but have losers wouldn’t there so stands to reason there would be salacious headings and facts that are one sided LEFT, we all know the left lies through their teeth. Wouldn’t surprise me if Andrew Sullivan doesn’t turn out to be another WEINER.

    Why Are President Obama’s Defenders So Dumb?

    Media Bias: A presidential infomercial posing as a news magazine distorts the record to shamelessly shill for a failed administration. Why do we criticize the man who made the high-speed trains run on time?

    Political campaigns call it free media: when candidates can make their case and communicate their message through interviews and outlets that don’t cost a dime.

    It helps when a mainstream media sycophant like Andrew Sullivan gets to write a puff piece in Newsweek with the subtle title of “Why Are The President’s Critics So Dumb?” The Democratic National Committee couldn’t have said it better.

    Calling the president’s critics dumb is not novel, and it’s something President Obama and wife Michelle have done often. When ObamaCare was being shoved down our throats behind closed doors, the president said he had simply not made the case clearly enough so that opponents in flyover country, those bitter townsfolk clinging to their Bibles and guns, could get it.

    Sullivan says it’s “not true” Obama “has raised taxes” and that ObamaCare “is much more moderate” than its critics claim. Well, let’s start with Obama’s raising the federal tax nearly 62 cents on a pack of cigarettes to $1.01, which hits Occupy Wall Street’s 99% hard and makes a mockery of the pledge not to raise taxes on those making less than $250,000.


    AND THERE IS THIS! “Media Bias: A presidential infomercial posing as a news magazine distorts the record to”

    Then there are the ObamaCare taxes that took effect right after it was passed though the “benefits” won’t appear until 2014. For starters, there’s a 0.9% Medicare surtax on wages more than $200,000 for individuals and $250,000 for married couples, along with a 3.8% Medicare tax on investment income.

    There’s the “Cadillac tax” on high-value health plans from which unions sought exemption. There are the individual and employer mandates that require employers to provide or individuals to buy health insurance.

    So egregious are these added taxes and costs the Obama administration has had to issue 1,200 waivers to favored companies and labor unions supporting the president’s re-election. Meanwhile, insurance costs have risen, not fallen, and the promise of health care rationing and doctor shortages looms.

    Sullivan repeats administration talking points on nonexistent employment growth. But as we’ve pointed out, unemployment remains at an unacceptably high 8.5% and the figure is that low only because we don’t count those who have dropped out of the work force or limp along with part-time jobs. With the failed stimulus, Obama promised unemployment wouldn’t exceed 8%.

    Obama striking the pose. Barf alert

  • Molon Labe

    Newsweek employing someone who finds his dates in men’s toilets lacks a certain credibility. But from a magazine that is worth $1, I am not surprised.

  • Lady Mondegreen

    A plague on both their houses. Andrew Sullivan is a crank, but it’s time someone told Sarah that her 15 minutes are over. She’s served her purpose and this is all she can do to stay in the public eye.

  • Patty

    Hope you didn’t miss the Interview with Hannity, SARAH WAS EXCELLENT!!

  • decentAmerican

    two words, Mr Liberal nutjob racist Andrew Sullivan:


  • Meme

    I’m just curious. If this Sullivan guy “continues” to push this theory,
    then why did you link to an article dated June 28 2010?

  • Matt

    Andrew Sullivan is a conservative. Stop blaming him on liberals. He writes for the New Republic.

    Your catfight is in house.

  • carlito

    Andrew Sullivan is a paid employee of the Daily Beast website, which is owned and operated by Newsweek, so that is how he got this gig. But the man has some real mental and identity issues.
    He should tend to his own house before he goes and tells others what to think.

    @ Matt #20 “Andrew Sullivan is a conservative”

    Exactly what planet are you on? If Sullivan is a conservative I’m Mother Terresa….he’s a leftie.

    Those two posts together coincidentally highlight my personal theory:
    Sullivan cooked this up very deliberately cynically as a projection diversion/discredit to the demands for Obama’s certificate.

    The demand for Trig’s “birth certificate” is too obvious. It’s an attempt to make a mockery of legit demands regarding genuine questions about Obama’s much more murky past. If Sullivan makes a circus out of the birth certificate demands for Palin’s son, then it implies a similar circus-like atmosphere regarding S. Ann Dunham’s son … which isn’t comparable at all, and of course infers strongly that anyone asking for any birth certificate is ipso facto a nut to be dismissed.

    Sullivan is perfect choice for this task, he’s a gay know-nothing about women, so it enhances the absurdity of his birth certificate demands, and all his “studious-pseudo-medical female-biological” pontifications … implying by extension that people who demand Obama’s cert and his travel documents, are also know-nothings, are also engaing in pseudo-study pontifications regarding Obama.

    Too many Sociology/psychology majors in the LEft. They learned all the manipulative suggestive gimmicks that influence unwary people’s perceptions. That it also serves to mock Palin at the same time would be considered an added feature, a two-fer.
