Nothing that global-warming bedwetter Thom Hartmann would like more than to see energy execs prosecuted in show trials.

In lieu of that, the left-wing radio host will gladly accept public shaming instead for those with the audacity to run such scurrilous enterprises, even if the modern world couldn't function without them. (Audio after the jump)

Hearty perennial crank and occasional academic Cornel West continues his scorned lover's feud with the president.

West is one of Obama's most vociferous critics on the left, previously having condemned Obama as a "war criminal," a "Republican in blackface," and unworthy of being sworn into office with Martin Luther King Jr.'s Bible. (Audio after the jump)

Any doubt that there is a serious problem with leftists imitating the Thought Police in George Orwell's 1984 and scouring the Internet to silence free expression pretty much disappears once you see what they were able to have temporarily removed from the Facebook page of Fox Radio's Todd Starnes. And while it's a relief that the post has been restored, consider how many others without the Fox host's visibility may be having their posts removed with far less recourse.

Full text of the post, which has since been restored, along with the takedown notice Starnes reports he received, follow the jump (HT Fire Andrea Mitchell via I Hate the Media; click to enlarge in a separate tab or window):

National Public Radio enjoys a brand new and quite costly state-of-the-art facility just north of the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C. The new facility "includes a cafe with chefs, a gym with a trainer, a staffed wellness center, plug-ins for electric cars and other perks" and that begs the question, "Does an organization that well-heeled still need taxpayer money?"

That's what Washington, D.C. newsradio station executive Jim Farley asked in a letter to the editor in today's Washington Post. The WTOP vice president of news and programming wrote in to the Post to complain that (emphasis mine):

Liberal radio host and MSNBC parolee Ed Schultz -- they let him out only on weekends -- will never face accusations that he's a stickler for accuracy. Schultz counts on those who follow his shows as too dumb or indifferent to care when he gets it wrong, as often the case.

On his radio show Tuesday, for example, Schultz made a deceitful claim that bordered on nonsensical while talking about the so-called Corker-Hoeven amendment to the immigration reform bill in the Senate. (Audio clip after the jump)

And let's not forget crude and boorish, Ed Schultz's two other signature traits.

On any given day, it doesn't take long for the left-wing radio host and MSNBC weekend prison guard to turn bellicose and bizarre, as was the case Thursday. (Audio clips after the jump)

How many more erstwhile apologists can President Obama lose before he's rendered little more than a figurehead?

Two more just joined the forlorn procession -- left-wing queen bee Arianna Huffington and disgraced former New York governor turned itinerant political commentator Eliot Spitzer. (Audio clips after the jump)

As timing would have it, my 12-year-old daughter read Orwell's "Animal Farm" for school just before I encountered an eerily similar human version of one of its characters.

Do you remember Squealer, the propagandist for the pigs who ran the farm after the animals seized control of the property? He was described as "a brilliant talker" who when arguing "had a way of skipping from side to side and whisking his tail which was somehow very persuasive." (Audio after the jump)

Whatever it takes to divert attention from Dear Leader as he struggles through yet another scandal.

Once again Ed Schultz resorts to misdirection, trying to deflect attention from the burgeoning controversy over domestic surveillance by the National Security Agency and its damaging fallout for the Obama administration. (Audio clips after the jump)

Don't you love it when a liberal blames George W. Bush for whatever is annoying that liberal at any given moment, followed by said liberal undercutting his argument minutes later?

If you are cursed to watch MSNBC on a regular basis you're probably familiar with one of its frequent guests, attorney Mike Papantonio, co-host of the weekend radio show "Ring of Fire" along with Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and Sam Seder. (Audio after the page break)

It may never occur to liberals that crying wolf ad infinitum where racism doesn't exist makes actual examples less likely to be believed.

The claim has been so abused by the left since this allegedly racist country elected a man of color as president in 2008, then re-elected him four years later, that it is more often met now with skepticism instead of revulsion. (Audio after the jump)

Liberals thought their fondest dream had come true on Feb. 29, 2012, when weekday radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh referred to Georgetown University Law Student Sandra Fluke as a “slut” and a “prostitute” after she testified the week before to House Democrats in favor of forcing insurance companies to pay the full cost of contraceptives.

Democrats quickly urged sponsors to boycott the conservative icon's program, and that hurt advertising for the rest of the year. But Limbaugh's distributor -- Dan Metter -- said on Thursday that the radio host is not only drawing new advertisers, but he's also welcoming back a number of long-time sponsors.
