The chutzpah is unbelievable on the Left. They don’t even try to hide their bias anymore.

ABC and NBC are refusing to air an ad by the League of American Voters featuring a neurosurgeon who is critical of the Obamacare fiasco. And the best part of the story? The networks’ reasoning behind the decision…

“The ABC Television Network has a long-standing policy that we do not sell time for advertising that presents a partisan position on a controversial public issue,” spokeswoman Susan Sewell said in a written statement. “Just to be clear, this is a policy for the entire network, not just ABC News.”

I think I’ve heard that excuse before. Oh yeah, back in June when ABC rejected another ad that offered a free-market alternative to President Obama’s $1 trillion plus health care reform plan submitted by a group called Conservatives for Patients Rights…

“The ABC Television network has a long-standing policy that we do not accept advocacy advertising. It’s just something that has been in place forever,” Emily Lenzner, spokesperson for ABC News.

CPR, incidentally, had requested that ad be aired during a little 2-hour ABC primetime special promoting Obama’s healthcare plan.

President Obama’s health care push will continue next week with a primetime event at the White House, with ABC’s Charlie Gibson and Diane Sawyer set to moderate a nationally televised event called “Questions for the President: Prescription for America.”

The special edition of “Primetime” will air from the White House on Wednesday, June 24, at 10 pm ET. “Good Morning America,” “World News,” “Nightline,” and ABCNews.com’s “Top Line” will all feature special programming on the president’s health care agenda.

Apparently “advertising” means “doesn’t support our liberal agenda”…

What bias?

And so it begins.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office sent an email to reporters at around 2:30 a.m. today, just hours after his death, calling for the passage of health care overhaul. “Ted Kennedy’s dream of quality health care for all Americans will be made real this year because of his leadership and his inspiration,” the statement read.

Democrats are already tap-dancing on his grave, exploiting his death as an opportunity to pimp their healthcare legislation. It’s about as surprising as Michael Moore ordering dessert. Prepare yourself, because you’re about to experience the joys of combining an adoring media who gave us a weeklong pukefest of coverage for a moonwalking pedophile with the audacity of shameless liberal politics that turned Paul Wellstone’s memorial into Lollapalooza.

And Senator Byrd is calling for the healthcare legislation to be named for Kennedy

In his honor and as a tribute to his commitment to his ideals, let us stop the shouting and name calling and have a civilized debate on health care reform which I hope, when legislation has been signed into law, will bear his name for his commitment to insuring the health of every American.

As Bob says, “So the Dems want to change the current bill to the Ted Kennedy Memorial Bill. Does that mean they are going to do what he did with Mary Jo Kopechne… Do nothing and watch it die??”

Kopechne was unavailable for comment.

Ted Kennedy, Dead at 77
August 25th, 2009 11:53 pm

CNN is reporting that Senator Ted Kennedy has died.

I plan on offering him as much sympathy and respect in his passing… as he offered Mary Jo Kopechne in hers.

An intellectual nuking, that’s what. Hoo rah.

The Congressman at the receiving end of this spanking is Brian “Brown Shirts” Baird.

The Obama-assassination meme seems to be gaining popularity as a talking point on the Left. The not-so-subtle racism coming from liberals suggests that somehow Republicans are plotting an attempt on Obama’s life because, well…. Republicans are white (and angry) and he’s black. The sad thing is, this idiocy actually makes sense in their warped, simple minds.

Seems like everytime we hear something about race, it’s coming from a Democrat or the media. Race has become the biggest red herring of this decade. Despite the fact that it’s the racists on the Left who promote policies that keep minorities beholden to failing government programs, they’re the first ones to casually launch accusations of racism in lieu of responding to a point or defending a position on the merits. And the race pimps on the Left have found a cash cow in Obama. He gives them the perfect pretext to trot out all their false racial accusations, innuendos and bogus storylines.

And this point is driven home more clearly by this disgusting display of media bias.


“A man at a pro-health care reform rally…wore a semiautomatic assault rifle on his shoulder and a pistol on his hip….there are questions about whether this has racial overtones. Here you have a man of color in the Presidency and white people showing up with guns strapped to their waists.”

Just one little problem, there, MSNBC… The gun-toting guy is… BLACK.

But a black guy toting a gun to an Obama rally doesn’t quite fit their talking points, now does it? Now go back and watch the first video and notice the strategic camera angles they used to keep from exposing the race of the gun-toting guy. This wasn’t just a case of the hosts general accusations of racism being juxtaposed with the wrong film roll… this was a blatant attempt to create facts that didn’t exist to promote their talking points.

And if I were you, I wouldn’t hold my breath waiting for a public correction or apology.

Go Flag Yourself

Dear White House Czar of Fishiness,

I am flagging myself because I do not believe the typical spin of the Left when it comes to the current health care legislation, and I understand economics well enough to recognize a plan that defies all economic principles.

I am flagging myself because, as Hillary Clinton said, “I am sick and tired of people who say that if you debate and you disagree with this administration somehow you’re not patriotic. We should stand up and say we are Americans and we have a right to debate and disagree with any administration.”

I am flagging myself because I love and support the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, and the country that results from them, and I believe that those documents, not the whims of men and women, should govern our nation.

I am flagging myself because I believe that government of the people, by the people, and for the people requires us to stand up in opposition whenever we believe it has gone off track.

I am flagging myself because I am not afraid to stand up and say what I believe to anyone, including anyone in power in the administration.

I am flagging myself because if Congress and the Administration will not listen to the voice of the people, we will make our voices louder, starting with me.

I am flagging myself because I don’t get my information solely from the media’s administration-fed talking points, nor do I get it solely from pundits who closet themselves with officials to decide on the best spin on the news of the day.

I am flagging myself because I am an independent thinker, and will not swallow everything without skepticism.

I am flagging myself because I am an American.

I am flagging myself because I believe in this country.

I am flagging myself so that other people will join me in standing up and speaking out.

I am flagging myself because I love this country.

Thank goodness the White House has converted the official White House website into a campaign tool for promoting propaganda and collecting information on political dissenters, or I wouldn’t have a place to submit this “fishy” disinformation being disseminated in public forums.

I have not said that I was a single-payer supporter.”

Never supported single-payer, huh?

I happen to be a proponent of a single payer universal health care program. I see no reason why the United States of America, the wealthiest country in the history of the world, spending 14 percent of its Gross National Product on health care cannot provide basic health insurance to everybody. And that’s what Jim is talking about when he says everybody in, nobody out. A single payer health care plan, a universal health care plan. And that’s what I’d like to see. But as all of you know, we may not get there immediately. Because first we have to take back the White House, we have to take back the Senate, and we have to take back the House.

And again on the campaign trail a year ago:

“If I were designing a system from scratch, I would probably go ahead with a single-payer system,” Obama told some 1,800 people at a town-hall style meeting on the economy.

And just as a reminder:

I have not said that I was a single-payer supporter.”

Yeah, Barry, someone’s lying about your healthcare plans… but it isn’t us.

Putting aside the great orator’s inability to complete a sentence without saying “uh” over and over, check out how the community organizer in chief promotes his government-run healthcare fiasco…

“If you think about… If you, if you think about it, uh, ya know, UPS and FedEx are doin’ just fine. A’ight? The, uh… no, they are. I mean, it’s, it’s the post office that’s always havin’ problems.”

So, according to Obama’s own example:

It’s the private sector companies that are “doing just fine“…

…while the government-run organization is the one that’s “always havin’ problems“.

Probably not the best analogy to use, genius.

Another interesting note… Obama and his friends in Congress and the Media have been campaigning on the idea that opponents of his government-run healthcare plan are somehow spreading myths and lies about the plan (they’ve even used the white house website as a campaign tool for this)… yet, it’s Obama who is outright lying about the plan.

“Well, first of all, another myth that we’ve been hearing about is this notion that somehow we’re going to be cutting your Medicare benefits. We are not. AARP would not be endorsing a bill if it was undermining Medicare, okay?

Obama, clearly trying to give the impression that AARP has endorsed his plan was called out for his whopper of a lie by… AARP, themselves.

“While the President was correct that AARP will not endorse a health care reform bill that would reduce Medicare benefits, indications that we have endorsed any of the major health care reform bills currently under consideration in Congress are inaccurate.”

Maybe we should submit this fishy myth to flag@whitehouse.gov.

I moved this update to a dedicated post to accommodate additional information found about Obama’s support for a single-payer system.
