Van Susteren Rescues Palin From Saying She'd Like To Lynch Sandusky

Is there a single Republican presidential candidate out there who is interested in the advice of Sarah Palin? I doubt it. I have yet to hear any of them even mention her name. But don’t worry, Sarah. You’ll always have Greta Van Susteren. She trotted out Palin for more than 16 minutes to offer her special brand of insight into each candidacy. Later, Van Susteren "corrected" Palin when she indicated she'd like to lynch former coach Jerry Sandusky.

Monica Crowley: Americans Are Sick Of Attack Politics (But Pay No Attention To My Record Of Attack Politics)

Monica Crowley appeared on Hannity last Wednesday (11/9/11) and did her part to defend Herman Cain by attacking the so-called liberal media for having the nerve to ask him a debate question about allegations of sexual harassment against him – as if she wouldn’t be up in arms if a moderator had failed to ask the same question of a liberal candidate had he or she been in that position. Crowley said smugly, “At large, the American people are sick of political correctness and they’re sick of attack politics.” Oh, really? Then I’m looking forward to a new and improved Monica Crowley. Because the one I know has always reveled in attack politics.

Donald Trump Goes Birther Again – And Fox News Lets Him Skate

In case you missed it, Presidential candidate Rick Perry announced over the weekend that after talking birtherism with Donald Trump, Perry could not give “a definitive answer” as to whether or not the long-form birth certificate President Obama released last spring is real. Tonight, Greta Van Susteren hosted Donald Trump on On The Record and asked him if it’s true he’s not convinced. Trump revived his original claims and then pretended it wasn’t important. Van Susteren made a point of saying she thought the birth certificate real and she said she “thought” Trump had previously acknowledged its validity. However, she never pointed out the mountain of evidence confirming its authenticity and she never asked Trump what happened to that big investigation in Hawaii he was supposedly conducting into the matter – and then stopped mentioning after Obama's release of the birth certificate.

Donald Trump Teases Running For President Again – Then Repeatedly Paints American Blacks As Racists

Donald “I have a great relationship with the blacks” Trump is back on the maybe/maybe not presidential campaign trail. This time, in the middle of boasting to Sean Hannity about how important he is, how wealthy and how successful – and, by implication how generous and public spirited to consider putting all that aside in order to serve his country – Trump probably blew his chances (assuming he ever had any) by telling Hannity that it was racist for 95% of African Americans to vote for Obama. This is the second time this week (and it’s only Tuesday!) this accusation has been leveled on the Hannity show. In neither case did Hannity – who has a far worse record on race – challenge the outlandish accusation. In fact, some people say Hannity egged Trump on.

"Not A Birther" Hannity Attacks Obama For Not Releasing His Birth Certificate

During the latter part of last night's “Great American Panel” segment (in which actor Kevin Sorbo complained about “the race card” and then suggested American black voters are racist) pollster Bernard Whitman said there was a “major racist element” to the birthers. Predictably, Sean Hannity didn’t think so. Then he said, with a straight face, “It was never my issue." But his next words were, "But I gotta tell you something. What was such a big deal to say, ‘Show your birth certificate?’ Why didn’t they just show it and get it over with? Why did this have to drag on forever?” Did Hannity’s nose just start growing again? UPDATE: Hannity also just so happened to add fuel to the birther fire by falsely stating that Obama "grew up in Kenya."
