Seven weeks since their seismic losses in the midterm elections, liberals continue mouthing their moronic mantra that the results were a mandate for Republicans to "get things done" with President Obama.

On This Week with George Stephanopoulos this morning, uber-Dem Howard Dean trotted out a variation of the threadbare theme, that Republicans better work with Obama or face dire consequences in the 2016 election. Weekly Standard editor Bill Kristol proceeded to pounce. It made for entertaining Sunday morning television --

Washington Post TV writer Hank Stuever didn’t refrain from the goo over the end of Stephen Colbert’s tenure at Comedy Central. His "Critic's Notebook" might have been too soaked with tears to be legible, but it made it into print.

The Thursday headline was “The Colbert rapport: How he built a Nation.” The subhead was “Comedy Central’s consummate showman turned a one-man spoof into a nine-year run of zeitgeist gold.” Stuever said the show was so tremendous that you didn’t have to watch it to know its excellence.

It would have been more honest had ABC News simply stated its opinion that those opposed to the communist regime in Cuba are unreconstructed ignoramuses, but that would be asking a bit much.

Instead, a photo was shown on "This Week with George Stephanopoulos" this morning that said as much without coming out and saying it.

Former New Mexico governor and member of the Clinton cabinet, Bill Richardson, took a cheap shot at Jeb Bush on Meet The Press today. To make matters worse, his slam against Bush for poor Spanish language ability was completely wrong as we can see in a video interview with him in that idiom.

Conservative columnist George Will appeared on Fox News Sunday to discuss the Sony hacking scandal and the fate of liberalism in America. Speaking during a panel discussion, Will argued that Sony’s decision to pull the Interview was “self-censorship” and “there are two great citadels of American liberalism unchallenged in America, Hollywood and college campuses.”

Continuing the review of the MRC's Best Notable Quotables of 2014, the "Blue State Brigade Award," showcasing the media's attempt to deny or deflect the anti-liberal wave seen in this year's elections that swept Democrats from power in the U.S. Senate.

On Friday afternoon President Obama held is annual end-of-year press conference, and following the event the folks at MSNBC eagerly cheered on the president’s performance.

 

During MSNBC’s post-press conference coverage, Chuck Todd, NBC News Political Director and moderator of Meet the Press, proclaimed that Obama looked “incredibly strong” and was “a president who feels as if he's earned the right to have some swagger.”

It's not very often that The Washington Post publishes letters to the editor that call the newspaper out for liberal bias, so Saturday's paper carried a treat from Silver Spring, Maryland. Why is it necessary to use the Automobile Review column to praise Obamacare?

In New York City, police officers Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos were killed Saturday afternoon by a man who indicated online that his motivation was to seek revenge for the deaths of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri and Eric Garner on Staten Island.

At the Daily Beast, M.L. Nestel didn't find it particularly difficult to find people who thought that the officers deserved to die, and almost seemed to excuse their feelings.

David Letterman’s impending May retirement meant two holiday traditions came to an end on Friday’s Late Show: the last time Darlene Love would sing “Christmas (Baby, Please Come Home)” and the final time actor/radio host Jay Thomas would recite what Letterman calls “the greatest talk show story of all time.” Since the mid-1990s, on Letterman’s last show before Christmas, Thomas has been telling the story of what happened in the early 1970s when he was a local radio DJ in Charlotte and broadcast, with the “Lone Ranger,” from a car dealership.

New York Times reporter Damien Cave reported from Havana that Obama's liberalized policy shift toward Cuba meant that that country was finished with its "venerable....leader" (not ruthless dictator) Fidel Castro, and also took a shot at "stiff-backed critics of Fidel’s government." As Miami bureau chief, Cave fostered a bizarre obsession with hypothetical inequality that might transpire in a freer Cuba.

Ebony Magazine put some trash talk in its December 16 article “Google’s Top-Trending Black Actresses of 2014.” They wrote nice things about actresses one through eight, but Stacey Dash was number nine, and the caption was pointed: “Her conservative, clueless political slant sparked controversy time after time this year, making Dash notoriously trendy for all the wrong reasons.”

Get the obvious joke? Dash is most famous for the movie and TV series “Clueless.” The next day on Fox News Channel’s Outnumbered, Dash talked back.

A few days ago, we shined a light on Univision’s Fernando Espuelas. His on-air response, on the Univision America radio network, was quite interesting, to say the very least.

Espuelas devoted his entire show (two hours broadcast from coast-to-coast!) to denouncing nameless, faceless “right-wing media organizations” and “Latinito” sell-outs who had the audacity to offer any critique of his broadcast, his network, or the ideology he attempts to sell his audience.

Liberal horror novelist Stephen King regrets asserting that if you don't learn how to read, you'll end up in "the Army, Iraq." The comment, widely seen as a shot at the military, was first publicized by Noel Sheppard on NewsBusters.

Seth Rogen needs to start writing a new script telling this story for the screen, the story of the Sony cave-in to North Korea and its hackers -- starring himself with James Franco and George Clooney as a co-stars. Not to mention every other Hollywood star who has genuine guts, not the make-believe version, to stand up and be counted.
