Outgoing Defense Secretary Leon Panetta made news last Sunday when he once again claimed that enhanced interrogation techniques aka torture led to the United States assassinating Osama bin Laden.
During his confirmation hearing Thursday, CIA Director nominee John Brennan appeared to dodge a question from Senate Intelligence Committee Vice Chairman Saxby Chambliss (R-Ga.) about this claiming he didn’t have enough information to comment on whether Panetta was right or wrong.

Well, on a relatively new online game show called Let's Ask America, web cam contestants were playfully asked which one would offend liberal parents more if they stumbled upon their teenage son watching one or the other. (video clip below; h/t email tipster John Heckman)
A Teen Jeopardy! contestant had some harsh words for unnamed recent presidents Wednesday.
Responding to host Alex Trebek’s question about what he’d “bring to the presidency that we haven’t had say in the last few decades,” Lexington, Kentucky, high school senior Barrett Block said, “A sense of competence and accountability.”
In today's "You've Got To Be Kidding Me" segment, a group of kids from Newtown, Connecticut - some are students that attend Sandy Hook Elementary School - will be performing Carly Rae Jepsen's hit song "Call Me Maybe" at Sunday's Grammy Awards.
On his HBO show Friday night, Bill Maher wrapped up by accusing conservatives of needing constant reaffirmation, and accused conservative authors of writing "the exact same book" over and over to separate conservatives from their cash.
"Maybe they can only vote once every two years, but they can buy the same book, every three weeks. The exact same book. Over. And over. And over again. [Conservative book covers displayed, listed below.] I don’t know why being a Republican means needing to have your faith recharged five times a day like Dick Cheney’s heart. (Laughter) Because there’s no comparable industry on the Left dedicated to separating liberals from their cash. I mean, unless you count Whole Foods." But when it comes to separating lefties from their cash, shouldn't Maher put on camera how much it costs to see his standup routine in a concert hall? Try $75:
Editor's Note: This was originally slated for publication on Feb. 1. We apology for the delay | Many have rightly condemned MSNBC's serpentine editing of a video to make it appear that certain gun rights activists heckled the father of a 6-year-old victim of the Sandy Hook shooting massacre, but let's not pretend this was a one-off event.
The liberal media long ago forfeited their respected role as watchdog over the government and have voluntary descended to the status of a public relations arm of the Democratic Party and various liberal causes.
Just three days after the inauguration, a White House official told The Hill's Erik Wasson that the Obama administration would be nine days late in presenting its budget blueprint, going to Congress on February 13 with the multi-volume spending plan instead of the February 4 deadline set by federal law. This marks the third year in a row that the president has missed the budgetary deadline.
Well, yesterday, the deadline came and went, only this time White House press secretary Jay Carney informed reporters that the White House had no firm date on when the budget would be released, refusing to give reporters an approximate release date and turning to predictable talking points in which he bashed congressional Republicans, you know, the guys who actually passed a budget plan last year. From the White House website:
According to New Jersey Governor Chris Christie (R), NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell "didn't seem to care one bit" when the lights went out at the Superdome in the middle of Sunday's Super Bowl.
Christie, who was sitting in Goodell's box for the game, told CBS Late Show host David Letterman Monday of the Commissioner's reaction to the blackout, "He was eating some popcorn, checking his Blackberry. He seemed relatively unconcerned."
While liberal media members such as NBC's Bob Costas call for radical changes to the NFL as a result of all the injuries, few seem willing to look at the issue from a broader perspective.
CBS's Jim Nantz added such perspective on Face the Nation Sunday saying, "Research shows that at the college level, a women's soccer player is two and a half times more likely to suffer a concussion than a college football player" (video follows with transcript and commentary):
Last week, President Obama blamed Republicans for the poor state of the economy.
On CNN's State of the Union Sunday, former Bush Labor Secretary Elaine Chao scoffed at this saying, "I don't know how he can say that when he had control of both the houses in the legislative branch. He had control over the White House."
