Criticizing Elizabeth Warren’s "angry" rhetoric is not just unacceptable, it is sexist. At least that’s the contention of Mika Brzezinski’s tantrum over Warren Buffett’s  remarks about the Massachusetts Senator on Tuesday’s Morning Joe.
 
What terrible misogynistic screed did Buffett unleash that made Brzezinski so upset? He observed that Warren "would do better if she was less angry and demonized less.” Mika announced “I think that’s sexist. I think it’s preposterous."

It was almost a funny moment . . . until you realized that members of the press were openly laughing at the fecklessness of the ostensible leader of the free world.

On today's Morning Joe, the Washington Post's Eugene Robinson, his voice occasionally cracking with emotion, repeatedly insisted that President Obama would use military force if necessary to stop Iran from getting a nuclear weapon.  Andrea Mitchell eventually had enough, saying in a devastating aside "ask Bashar al-Assad," an allusion of course to how President Obama ran away from his red line in Syria.  Joe Scarborough laughingly joined in, repeating "ask Assad."   Even Mika Brzezinski couldn't suppress a smile [see screencap below.]

Ana Marie Cox, the founding editor of the sassy and secular leftist blog Wonkette and now a Washington correspondent for GQ, recently came out of the closet as a -- gasp -- Christian!  Cox’s “coming out” was revealed in The Daily Beast, where she is a contributor.  The article sounds like something written by a recently converted clergyman, rather than a recently converted liberal blogger.

On Tuesday night, the “big three” of ABC, CBS, and NBC continued to report on the latest scandal involving Hillary Clinton's exclusive use of a private email account while she was Secretary of State in what may have been a violation of federal law. On the CBS Evening News, substitute anchor Charlie Rose flashed his favoritism for his dear “friend” Hillary Clinton by wondering to CBS News political director John Dickerson: “Why is this story getting so much attention?”

On Inauguration Day, 2009, the White House website declared President Obama’s administration would become “the most open and transparent in history.” By the end of the next day, Obama had issued high-profile orders pledging “a new era” and “an unprecedented level of openness” across the massive federal bureaucracy.

This has become a cosmic joke.

All three broadcast networks reported on Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech before Congress with segments in their Tuesday night broadcasts, but it was CBS and NBC that led the way in hitting Netanyahu for making a “controversial speech” and touted President Obama for “firing back,” “point by point for 11 minutes.” CBS Evening News substitute anchor Charlie Rose told viewers “Netanyahu did an end run around President Obama today” in his speech with the caption “controversial speech” appearing beside him.

A Vox writer once again proves that the Left hates the U.S. Constitution with its limits on government power and checks and balances. Instead he wants the current form of federal government replaced with a parliamentary system giving more power to the chief executive.

A genuine leader spoke in Washington today, Rush Limbaugh told his radio listeners, and we've waited years to hear one.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's long-anticipated speech before a joint session of Congress on the peril posed to Israel -- and the world -- if the Islamist theocrats in Tehran succeed in acquiring nuclear weapons ended shortly before Limbaugh's show began.

On the Bloomberg TV show he co-hosts, John Heilemann—asked today to quantify on a scale of "1-to-Godzilla" how "dumb" politically it was of Hillary Clinton to use personal email—answered "Godzilla with Mothra riding on his back dumb."  Heilemann also revealed having reached out to former Hillary aides and that "to a person" they responded that the situation is a political "disaster."

Mark Halperin claimed that, substantively, Hillary might have "a leg to stand on" but that politically her decision to use personal email was "moronic."

Wrapping up a segment on CNBC's Closing Bell on Tuesday, reporter John Harwood suggested that Hillary Clinton's use of personal email to conduct State Department correspondence may well have been just a case of "excessive caution" on her part.

Sad news today that M. Stanton Evans, newspaper editor, founder of the National Journalism Center, conservative leader and author who wrote ten books, passed away at age 80. In 2006, Stan rewarded the Media Research Center and our audience, at the 2006 MRC Gala and DisHonors Awards, by accepting in jest, on behalf of Rosie O’Donnell, the “I’m Not a Political Genius But I Play One on TV Award.”

MSNBC anchor Chris Matthews escalated his rage over Benjamin Netanyahu's address to Congress, Tuesday, hinting that the Israeli prime minister delivered what amounts to a coup. Appearing on his cable network for analysis, Matthews darkly warned, "This man from a foreign government walked into the United States legislative chamber and tried to take over U.S. foreign policy."
