My Cross To Bear – An Annotated Segment Of The Five – A Rant By Aunty Em

Whenever we News Hounds, working behind the scenes to divide the labor, encounter another one of those FoxNews” “Defending the Good Christian Crosssegments, I am always happy to let Priscilla do it.

Michele Bachmann visited the Glenn Beck show yesterday (10/12/10) where she and guest host Judge Andrew Napolitano wondered about the effects that winning Tea Party candidates will have on Washington, D.C. and vice versa. Bachmann said she plans to do her part to keep Tea Party legislators from being “so susceptible to melting” by conducting weekly classes on the Constitution for Congressional freshman. But no sooner had she invited Napolitano to be one of the guest experts, than he asked her whether the Tea Party would advocate for restoring civil liberties abolished under the Bush administration. Suddenly, Constitution-champion Bachmann began waffling and fumbling.

Naomi Wolfe Unnerves John Kasich on O'Reilly Factor

Naomi Wolfe visited The Factor to talk about her book, The End of America: Letter of Warning to a Young Patriot. John Kasich, guest host for Bill O'Reilly,11/21/07, nervously interviewed the author and did his best to keep Wolfe from explaining the premise of her book.
