On ABC's The View on Friday, the ladies discussed the Republican debate. They actually discussed both debates, going after Carly Fiorina's Hillary wisecrack in the undercard. She said: "Unlike another woman in this race, I actually love spending time with my husband.”

Co host Joy Behar made a meowing sound and said, “I wonder who she’s talking about? Who do you think she’s talking about?”

Chris Christie fibbed about his record. But since he's not the presumed frontrunner for the GOP nomination, most of the media never blinked. If you're a RINO, the media love ya. But if you're  nominated, they will turn on a dime and rip your political guts out.

NPR brought on two women to replace David Brooks and E.J. Dionne for their “Week in Politics” segment on Friday’s All Things Considered. As usual, NPR’s idea of “balance” is two experts who think Ted Cruz is a far-right disaster.

Former MSNBC host Joy Reid drew quite the softball from openly gay NPR anchor Ari Shapiro, who cited “some observers” who said that Chris Christie and Ted Cruz offered nasty criticisms of President Obama at the latest GOP debate that they wouldn’t make about a “white president.” One problem? Shapiro mistakenly put a Christie statement in Cruz's mouth.

It was pretty much inevitable. As soon as your humble correspondent watched the "USA Freedom Kids" performing their song on YouTube at a Donald Trump rally in Pensacola, Florida this week I just knew the "usual suspects" at the leftwing websites would attack the group. As we shall see, I was not a bit wrong but first, let us watch the kids perform their number.

Most families who flee countries in turmoil to find happiness, health, and considerable wealth in a new land would consider themselves to be living something of a dream. But don’t tell that to Seahawks offensive lineman Russell Okung.

On Friday's Erin Burnett OutFront on CNN, during a segment devoted to discrediting President Ronald Reagan's conservative credentials and painting modern Republicans as far right, host Erin Burnett proclaimed that Republicans "would hate that guy," and joined with CNN presidential historian Douglas Brinkley in suggesting that Democrat Hillary Clinton's views on some issues are closer to Reagan's.

On today's Melissa Harris-Perry show, the perpetually outraged Nina Turner of Ohio ripped Ted Cruz and Chris Christie for their language during this past week's debate: "to call the president a boy, those of us who understand African-American history—cause that's exactly what they called him was a boy—and you don't do that to anybody, and especially to an African-American man."

Republican candidates calling President Obama a "boy?" Offensive! Just one paltry problem for Ms. Turner. They didn't. As can be seen in the debate clip that rolled, Ted Cruz said that "China is running over President Obama like he is a child."  And Chris Christie called the president a "petulant child." Either Turner wasn't listening, or was making the unsubstantiated claim that referring to Obama as a child is "exactly" calling him a "boy." Crying racism everywhere is like crying wolf. It diminishes the impact when it really does occur.

During the 1980s, a favorite talking point of liberals was that President Reagan tended to confuse movies with reality. In a Friday article, Zack Beauchamp accused a current Republican presidential candidate, Ted Cruz, of doing something similar, and alleged that the GOPers who took part in Thursday’s prime-time debate stand for a “view of the world [that] is as much a work of fiction as” Michael Bay's new film, 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi.

Towards the end of the debate, Cruz touted 13 Hours. Beauchamp commented, “The movie portrays politicians as ‘abandoning’ the Americans in Benghazi. But in reality, that is a conspiracy theory that has been roundly debunked…This moment, Cruz citing a fictitious movie as truth, was of a piece with the debate as a whole. In it, much of conversation about world affairs existed in a make-believe world, and a terrifying one at that, in which the very existence of America is in perilous danger. In other words, it wasn't just Ted Cruz who was living in a fiction last night — it was the entire stage.”

 You can't please everybody, especially hard-left film critics who don't cotton to heroism draped in the American flag.

13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi isn’t getting pummeled by critics in the grand Michael Bay fashion. It’s still angering critics who treat any film with masculine heroes fighting for their fellow man as cliches, cartoons or worse.

As the media are beating their breasts about Ted Cruz's hit on Donald Trump for exhibiting "New York values" and hence proving he's an ill fit for Iowa Republicans, I noticed something the other night on MSNBC's The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell which seems to illustrate the New York-based liberal media's mockery and disdain for conservative rural America.

Do your Allen Iverson imitation, but instead of "practice," try saying "alleged" in your most disbelieving voice. . .  On today's Good Morning America, co-host Dan Harris struck a blow against political correctness, taking issue with Ron Claiborne's insistence on calling a caught-on-tape convenience store shooter an "alleged" robber. The show rolled the security video several times, showing the "alleged" robber repeatedly shooting right at the woman at the register. 

Said an incredulous Harris "I like how you call him an 'alleged' robber. I think we can say, given the video, he did it." Responded Claiborne: "I'm not going there, Dan. Innocent till proven guilty." Shot back Harris sarcastically "it was Photoshopped, ladies and gentlemen."

When David Bowie died after a very private fight with liver cancer, obituary writers churned out words like "icon" and "legend" and "subversive." Despite a life of very fluid explorations of musicality and sexuality and spirituality, the Vatican newspaper L'Osservatore Romano celebrated Bowie as "never banal," displaying an "artistic rigor" which seemed to contradict the sexually "ambiguous image" he presented to "attract the attention of the media."

This star-struck eulogy ignored Bowie's 2013 album "The Next Day." His "artistic rigor" included a nasty anti-Catholic video starring actor Gary Oldman as an angry priest. It begins with this priest punching a begging teenage boy in the face.

Jay Leno made another cameo appearance on Last Man Standing with Tim Allen, and the two were back to their old hijinks. In the episode Mike and the Mechanics,” the comedians rip on each other through their characters Mike and Joe, joking about Allen sticking to TV sitcoms and Leno leaving "The Tonight Show," respectively.

“America is the best country in the world,” declares Danny (Chris D’Elia) at the opening of the episode "Danny's Boyz Walk Into a Bar" of the live NBC comedy Undateable. He is giving his own version of the State of the Union address, a timely reference to the actual address delivered by President Obama just a few days ago. He calls himself “Barack O’Biden” and promises a clothing-optional America with free jalapeno poppers for everyone. You know, just like the real president promises utter pie-in-the-sky nonsense paid for by the American taxpayer that Democrats all stand up and cheer for.

After drawing wide condemnation for suggesting Ted Cruz offered “dark and satanic tones” last Friday, Brooks insisted this week that he still doesn’t like Cruz, but that he bested Donald Trump in the second Fox Business debate. Brooks said the GOP establishment is “in panic,” but seems immobile. Brooks is rooting for a moderate “conspiracy” of donors to pick one moderate. A squishy Republican “ organization,” he said.
