Appearing on "The O'Reilly Factor," Comedy Central star Jon Stewart said Democrats lost the midterms "Because they curled up in a little ball and tried to make sure that nobody hit them too hard...I don’t even know what they ran on....Right? Here’s what they ran on: ‘We don’t like Obama either. I don’t know who voted for him. We’ve got nothing to do with the guy.’”

But Stewart still claimed Obama isn't really the leader of the Democrats. He's only the president.

First it was just conservatives who were accused of doing the bidding of the Koch brothers. Now a radical climate change alarmist is accusing Senate Democrats of “trying to build them [the Koch brothers] a pet project,” the Keystone XL pipeline.

Erich Pica, President of Friends of the Earth, ranted against Democrats and Republicans alike in a Huffington Post op-ed on November 17, 2014. According to Pica, Democrats need to take “the just, responsible and moral stance” against fossil fuels and to stop being “more concerned with politics than the planet.” Besides environmental activism, Friends of the Earth takes a stance against free market capitalism.

Question: if there’s no such thing as a slut, how can anyone be guilty of “slut-shaming?” 

Don’t dismiss it as one of those timeless philosophical conundrums (ie. “Which came first, the slut or the shamer?”). The answer is an important key to navigating the shoals of perpetual feminist outrage.

On Monday's AC360 on CNN, retired Lt. General Russel Honore rebuked the media's coverage of the ongoing controversy surrounding the police shooting of Michael Brown. Anderson Cooper raised how a liberal legal analyst contended that Missouri Governor Jay Nixon's activation of the National Guard, in anticipation of a grand jury decision on the case, was an "escalation of this military-style approach that didn't work in the first place." He then asked, "Do you agree with that – that it could, in some ways, do more harm than – than good?"

When asked about the ramifications of potential executive action on immigration, incoming Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) suggested such action by President Barack Obama would "poison the well". McConnell need no longer concern himself with that eventuality, given a recent tweet by Univision's Jorge Ramos.

If you asked a scientist to create a test-tube liberal, chances are his product couldn’t hold a candle to Maria Luisa Tucker. Tucker, a new mother, is celebrating the arrival of her little bundle of joy by mooning over the “environmental impact of procreation.” Really.

For a Nov. 13 piece for Alternet, Tucker asked, “Does Having a Child Make Me an Environmental Villain?” In it, Tucker outlined her “main source” of “maternal guilt:” “the mere fact that I created a person.” “Specifically,” she wrote, “an American person who will inevitably leave a large carbon footprint.”

In a Tuesday article, Baltimore Sun media critic David Zurawik examined the reason behind Fox News beating every other TV news outlet in the ratings – including NBC, ABC and CBS – during November 4 midterm election coverage: "...it's time to think seriously about what that says about Fox, CNN, MSNBC, the state of network news today and the role TV plays or doesn't play in providing us with reliable, trustworthy information."

The New York Times wants America to ignore Jonathan Gruber. Pay no attention to that architect behind the curtain!

Scott Whitlock at NewsBusters noted earlier today that a Times editorial on Jonathan "stupid voters" Gruber claims that the MIT economist was not an important player in the law's creation. The Times now insists that "In truth, his role was limited." The trouble is, Times reporters and columnists have paid quite a bit of attention to Gruber and the importance of his role in the creation, passage and defense of the Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare, during the past five years.

Although MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell claims that President Obama has the prosecutorial discretion not to deport illegal aliens, he can't find any legal justification for work documents to be issued to them in the proposed executive order. Not only could his  Democrat guest, Representative Peter Welch of Vermont, come up with such legal justfication but O'Donnell claimed he spent several days contacting elected Democrats and none of them could provide it either.

“Interstellar” was a highly anticipated film, and one many liberals outlets expected to be the latest film to portray climate change as the cause of a dying Earth.

Writers at major news outlets like The New York Times and Wall Street Journal, as well as distinctly left-wing websites like Grist, The Huffington Post, and Slate all connected Christopher Nolan’s latest film “Interstellar” to climate change or global warming before or after its release.

Two cheers — and two cheers only — for the National Journal's Ron Fournier.

On Fox News's Special Report with Bret Baier last night, the former Associated Press Washington Bureau chief observed that the Jonathan Gruber videos about how the Affordable Care Act was dishonestly written and promoted, as well as President Barack Obama's reaction to those revelations, demonstrate that he (Obama) "has destroyed the credibility of his administration, himself, and government itself." Fine. But then, imitating the naive lover who won't give up despite constant betrayal in the hit song "I Can't Let Go," Fournier stated that he "would like to see this bill work."

MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell, host of the Last Word, stopped by Morning Joe on Tuesday, November 18 and did his best to defend ObamaCare architect Jonathan Gruber from criticism following video of him saying that the “stupidity of the American voter” was key to getting ObamaCare passed. Speaking to the Morning Joe panel, O’Donnell argued that “what Gruber did, specific language aside, the offensive language aside, what he did was tell the truth. Legislation always needs collective ignorance about many elements of it in order to move forward.”

NPR and PBS have finally touched the Gruber brouhaha, but neither showed any enthusiasm for it. On Sunday morning’s Weekend Edition, anchor Rachel Martin and reporter Mara Liasson dismissed it in 59 seconds. 

On the PBS NewsHour Monday, anchor Judy Woodruff brought in two liberal journalists to discuss Gruber, but first Woodruff asked six questions about how open enrollment was going.

Appearing on Fox News's Special Report Monday, columnist Charles Krauthammer suggested that the reason President Obama waited a week to comment on the Jonathan Gruber ObamaCare scandal was because the White House knew it could count on the liberal media to ignore the story: "...they've had six years experience of the press essentially conspiring with them....the administration issues statements, it uses Gruber reports, it's echoed by their minions in the press, then repeated by Democrats as if this is objective evidence..."

The Esquire blogger argues that Obamacare-hating congressional GOPers still have no interest in actually governing, but they would like to make a meal of Gruber as a political performance piece.” Pierce also declared that Gruber "is a lot smarter than" congressional critics "like Senator Ron Johnson of Wisconsin, he who clings still to the shreds of his freedom against the onslaught of poor people who now have medical care.”
