Hannity & Colmes

Have gotten lots of good feedback from last night, which is what comes from being called a Nazi, I suppose. The lesson from Bob Beckel’s ranting last night (and even the usually more civil Alan threw in a Goebbels reference) is just how DESPERATE the Dems are at the moment–you can smell it on them. Here is an e-mail that captures it:

“Dear Mr. Lowry,

The plain rudeness of the left, still, after all these years, amazes me. Colmes asked two very good questions, which you answered well, about possible double standards, etc., but he couldn’t let you answer. He kept talking over you as if to filibuster his time. I thought he was uncharacteristically rude.

It was also obvious that the new Dem strategy is personal smear. From the Estrich column to Beckel (is that it?) last night, the warm up to desperate personal attacks is, `Okay, if you want to play it that way, get ready.’ Besides being slimy and disingenuous, it’s transparent: they’ve tried the personal smear thing from the get-go and they are trying to set the stage for more of the same. I know we’ll hear lots about Bush’s drinking, National Guard duty, etc. from here on out. And Kerry still won’t have a clue that his ideas don’t sell to most Americans. Pathetic.”

Obama Wrote Trump a $73 Million Check

The New York Times’ big exposé on President Trump's tax returns flags some things that may be dodgy but mainly it just confirms what everybody (including Trump) has always said -- there are a lot of loopholes in the tax code that a savvy operator can exploit.

Three Cheers for Ruth Graham

In her piece in the New York Times today, Ruth Graham captured something quite true: Amy Coney Barrett’s nomination is a cultural moment for conservative women. We don’t like to talk in terms of trailblazing, because these words have ideological implications. But we all remember the “mommy wars” when moms ... Read More
