Is Bradley Jacobs of Us Weekly the new Dick Harper?

So, Bradley Jacobs, the senior editor of Us Weekly appeared on Fox News’ American Election HQ at 5:55 today to defend the hit piece they slapped on their increasingly worthless (and I mean by the minute) cover page. And as you may have already guessed, it was atrocious. But, as the clearly unprepared, stumbling, and bumbling hack, Bradley Jacobs, fumbled his way through the first half of the interview… ok, actually the entire interview… I couldn’t help but be reminded of the scene in “Fun with Dick and Jane” where Jim Carey’s character is taken completely by surprise and gets

Moving In Time

So its that time of year again! Yup its college time for The College Politico… And as fun as moving back in and seeing all my friends (who are basically family now) it means that I won’t be posting at full capacity for a while… maybe a week. But until I’m back and posting again enjoy some of my favorite stuff from around the conservosphere: Top Hillary Supporter Turns To McCain Liberal Historian: Obama=Carter Where are all the Kos Democrats now? A Star Is Born? Dobson on the Palin Pregnancy He’s Ba-aack… We have walked in the Palin’s shoes

Biden vs Palin so far…

So the number 1s have chosen their number 2s. Lets take a minute to make a video comparison of the two latest video from Joe Biden and Sarah Palin. Here’s biden at a campaign event making a little gaffe and sounding just plain painful… (Bob Casey jr was negative 2 years old at the time) httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZN5khF2i2ek&eurl=http://hotair.com/archives/2008/08/30/video-biden-sees-unborn-people/ And here’s Sarah Palin on CNBC sounding smooth and informed… plus she isn’t afraid to directly critique her own party. httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2GE11URmmnc&eurl=http://hotair.com/archives/2008/08/29/video-palin-knocks-biden-on-drilling-ties-it-to-national-security/ McCain’s pick looks better and better every hour… can you say the same of Obama’s pick?

Huckabee to supporters: Palin pick “pleasant surprise”

Contrary to what others in the conservative community might think it seems that Mike Huckabee isn’t trying to fracture the party or “stir up the same sense of grievance among the Huckheads that finding out Hillary wasn’t vetted stirred up in the PUMAs” it seems that Mike Huckabee is actually quite happy with the VP choice. Here is the message he sent to supporters today: Sarah Palin for Vice President! Today at 12:48pm by Mike Huckabee Sarah Palin is a pleasant surprise for those of us who had hoped that Senator McCain would pick a principled and authentic conservative pro-life

Sarah Palin, The most experienced?

So, now that the pick is in, its time for the Democratic attacks to start… What about Sarah Palin (who went to the University of Idaho) will they attack you ask? Well, as Ironic as it is, her inexperience… That’s right, Barack Obama and his surrogates will attack Sarah Palin because she doesn’t have enough experience to lead… boy oh boy. Now, any sane person will surely see right through this pathetic tactic (seriously, couldn’t they come up with anything better?) but I figure why not examine it anyway? Well, it is true that Sarah Palin has only been Governor

Obama intro video: less than a minute dedicated to his experience

I just rewound my Tivo after I was surprised at how little time they dedicated to trying to establish Barack Obama’s experience in his introduction video. And I’m not kidding on this… it was less than one minute, and that includes when they were talking about his “community organizer” and state senate days. According to my rough count they spent about 20-30 seconds (my exact count was 20 but I’ll throw in a buffer) on his national political experience. And even more odd than the lack of time spent on his national experience, because lets face it there just isn’t

Pick Pawlenty (or Romney if you must)… AND Lieberman

So, as I’m sure you know, there has been buckets and buckets of speculation over the GOP veepstakes and of course some friendly advice on who the pick should be. Well… now its my turn and honestly it seems like there is only one choice (maybe two), however I have a, not so secret twist, to my analysis. OK, I’m just gonna jump right to the point, pick Pawlenty for VP. He is by far the best choice for you, period. He is pro-life, he is a conservative who won’t piss people like me off, he has more experience than

Barack Obama: Messiah or Greek God?

By now I’m sure that we have all heard the Messianic claims of “The One”. You know, things like “this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal” or “a light will shine down, from somewhere, it will light upon you, you will experience an epiphany and you will say to yourself, I have to vote for Barack” (outlined ever so subtly in this McCain ad). And its clear by the undying devotion of the Obamatrons that he is not the only one who believes that he has “become a

Biden and Pelosi are called out for being… well… Liars

So it seems that Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi are up to their old lying ways, again. (UPDATE: And Again!) Added to her long line of falsehoods and mistruths (exactly like… um.. all politicians) is a fresh fabrication she made to Brokaw on meet the press. In a if-it-wasn’t-disturbing-it’d-be-funny kind of way she claimed that, on the issue of the Catholic Church’s position on abortion, “I have studied [it] for a long time”. And what did the apparent expert on Catholic history and doctrine conclude about the issue of abortion? Well when Brokaw reminded her that “The Catholic Church at

Best undercover reporting EVER

These videos have got to be THE funniest interviews I’ve ever seen in my life, and trust me I’ve seen some good stuff (like the videos at Newsbusters). The video’s I’m speaking of involve Jason Mattera (of Hotair.com) going undercover as a left wing nut job and interviewing the protesters at the DNC in Denver. While its certainly true that simply watching left wing nut jobs talk about….. well.. anything… is hilarious in and of itself Jason manages to subtly but masterfully lampoon the geniuses right in front of them without them ever catching on! Now, inevitably, you’re going to
