Football fans know you don't want to spend a whole game on the wrong side of the 50 yard line. At the Values Voters Summit on Friday, MRC president Brent Bozell said it's time for conservatives to go on offense.

Put in your two cents, on this, or the weekend games, et cetera.

Sunday's New York Times Magazine includes an interview with former "American Idol" runner-up Clay Aiken, now running against Republican Rep. Renee Ellmers in North Carolina's 2nd district.

Late in the interview, Times reporter Jim Rutenberg brings up the dangerous question: How favorably do you view Barack Obama? Clay got out the ten-foot pole -- Aiken fans might hear him singing "From A Distance" by Bette Midler.

Actress Stacey Dash, star of the movie and TV series Clueless, appeared at the Media Research Center's 2014 Dishonors Gala. Dash ripped Hollywood as being full of "hypocrites." The conservative actress explained how the city's residents don't practice what they preach: "Want proof? There are no movies made in Hollywood. They make them in places like Georgia, Louisiana, North Carolina. Do you know why? Lower taxes. Hypocrites."

The establishment press, and now apparently the FBI, have a problem on their hands: an alleged killer who converted to Islam; expressed sentiments favored by terrorists; killed a woman by employing terrorists' favored method, i.e., beheading; shouted Islamic slogans while carrying out his evil deed; and was trying to kill someone else when another armed person shot and wounded him.

Their problem is that political correctness demands that they try to convince the public that Alton Nolen's deeds weren't linked to terrorism, and that they weren't even terrorist in nature.

By now, everyone knows that there’s a revolving door between Democratic politics and the “objective” news media. But does it have to spin so fast? On September 10, CNN announced it hired former White House press secretary Jay Carney as a commentator, citing his “invaluable voice for the network” after his five years inside the Obama administration.

By that afternoon and in heavy rotation in the evening around an Obama speech, Carney was battling for the White House position. Having a direct conflict of interest isn’t disqualifying if you're labeled a “commentator.” The issue: Can Carney truly offer “invaluable” commentary when the media themselves know that he used his White House podium to spout falsehoods  to the press?

Debbie has been caught doing it again.

Early this month, Democratic National Committe Chairmwoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz went after Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, claiming that he "has given women the back of his hand," and that "Republican tea party extremists like Scott Walker are ... grabbing us by the hair and pulling us back." I wrote at the time that Wasserman-Schultz's supposed "walkback" was not genuine. The Washington Free Beacon has corroborated that suspicion, reporting, with video support seen after the jump, that the Badger State incident was not the first time she used the language of domestic violence to smear a Republican officeholder:

Kelli Kopetz at JillStanek.com reported on the kind of guff that pro-life protesters get on campus.
Students for Life set up an informative Planned Parenthood Project display at Grand Valley State University in Michigan. The display features statistics about Planned Parenthood from the organization’s own annual reports. An unhappy feminist student asked as she passed by (several times), “Who let these f***ers on campus?” (See the video.)

It wasn't that long ago that Obamacare defenders were ridiculing those of us who pointed out that the fully loaded cost of HealthCare.gov would surely top the $1 billion mark.

Well, we were wrong — to be so conservative. The real number is "about" $2.1 billion and counting, according to a Bloomberg report which is mostly being kept out of the non-business press.

The Hill published a story about a mysterious virus outbreak which particularly affects children. The most notable thing about the article is  how the author failed to note the many warnings about the possible cause of the outbreak.

MSNBC host Al Sharpton will be the keynote speaker at the Council on American-Islamic Relations's (CAIR) 20th anniversary banquet on Saturday. Sharpton, who is President Obama's "go-to man on race," and who claims to be helping the White House pick outgoing Attorney General Eric Holder's successor, will be a guest of honor of the group, which was listed as a co-conspirator in a criminal case against an Islamic charity that raised millions for Hamas.

It was no contest really. For the 2014 "Damn Those Conservatives to Hell" DisHonor, the winner hands down was former MSNBCer Martin Bashir, who infamously wished on national television -- if MSNBC can count as that -- that former Gov. Sarah Palin might be subject to someone defecating down her mouth.

UPDATED (18:10 Eastern): Daily Beast now describing attack as "Like ISIS"

Yesterday in Moore, Oklahoma, a woman was brutally murdered and decapitated by a former coworker, Alton Nolen, who reportedly had repeatedly proselytized folks in the company, urging them to convert to Islam. 

But when the liberal Daily Beast picked up the story and teased it in their Cheat Sheet digest, they tagged the incident not as an "outrage" but a "tragedy." What's more they didn't note the potential Islamist dimension to the attack.

Mere hours before President Obama announced Attorney General Eric Holder's resignation, Sharyl Attkisson reported on Thursday that U.S. District Court Judge John Bates ordered the Justice Department to "turn over a list of withheld Fast and Furious documents by Oct. 22 [2014]." CBS Evening News mentioned Fast and Furious in their coverage of the Holder announcement that evening, but NBC Nightly News failed to mention the scandal (ABC's World News didn't cover the resignation at all).

Star TV chef Emeril Lagasse was promoting his forthcoming TNT show about cooking and restaurant chains by discussing the state of the restaurant business.

What raised eybrows was the anti-Obama argument that unfolded.

An adamant Charlie Rose, on Thursday night, was astounded that there could be any opposition to the fight against climate change as he blurted: “Where is the resistance?! What stands in the way of something that clearly threatens the planet?”
