But I owe Peg and Sicilians never forget:

Here is Peg’s post on the subject:

Still, I think it very sad when people have an attitude like Maha seems to have about the world. As much as I disagree with some of the positions liberals take, I just cannot reason from that that millions of my fellow Americans are awful, stupid people. They are not. I may think that some are naive, or haven’t been exposed to some of the experiences that conservatives and/or libertarians have, etc., etc. But terrible people? Nope. And further – possible that I am wrong about some of my reasoning and my opinions? Sure! But if the discussion stops, how will anyone ever know?

Shades of the RedNeck stuff. I confess when it comes to Peg I’ve VERY Biased and left this comment:

Well you know us evil conservatives, we turn up in the most unlikely places to spread our cause to destroy the world, strangle puppies and generally wreak havoc.

Banning Peg, that’s Charles Johnson territory, but hey your blog, your rules.

but there are two sides to every story so in fairness to Mahablog, here is the entire thread. Read it and make up your own mind.

(Mind you the Glenn Beck joke is pretty good.)

Protest on Main street tomorrow

Newly re-elected city counselor-at-large Rosemary Reynolds (who won the seat held by Annie DiMartino) attended a meeting of Mass Right to Life in Fitchburg and informed them that Planned Parenthood will NOT be attending the Tuesday city counsel meeting on the 2nd.

Supposedly this is due to a key official of PP not being able to make it.

I wouldn’t put it past them to try to “deke” people in order to keep the turnout down so I think I’ll show up anyway.

The group will also hold a protest on main street tomorrow. I’m sure that will re-assure the remaining merchants on main street that PP won’t hurt business.

One side thought. The one Mosque in Fitchburg is located on main street. As Islam generally opposes abortion I wonder if the local Muslim community will be joining this protest?

Oh fyi the “re-elected” refers to her previous time on the city counsel.

…then NOW has some trouble:

Women’s Rights groups, like NOW, commendably call out advertisers and networks for airing sexist and demeaning portrayals of women that lead to young women’s diminished self-esteem and acceptance of roles as mere sexed-up objects.

What a ridiculous situation they’re getting themselves into now with their protest of CBS airing a pro-life ad during the upcoming Super Bowl game. The ad will feature Heisman trophy winner Tim Tebow and his mom, and they’ll speak to the sanctity of life and the beautiful potential within every innocent child as Mrs. Tebow acknowledges her choice to give Tim life, despite less than ideal circumstances. Messages like this empower women! This speaks to the strength and commitment and nurturing spirit within women. The message says everything positive and nothing negative about the power of women – and life. Evidently, some women’s rights groups like NOW do not like that message.

On Morning Joe today, Barnicle, Scarborough and Mika all talked about the standard superbowl ad whose message is: “Drink our beer/use our product and you will get laid!” and asked why they don’t just buy their own.

Gateway is on it, but then again he always is.

O’Keefe not withstanding, A million members of the left must be going Kryten today.

Fox is the most trusted television news network in the country, according to a new poll out Tuesday.

A Public Policy Polling nationwide survey of 1,151 registered voters Jan. 18-19 found that 49 percent of Americans trusted Fox News, 10 percentage points more than any other network.

Thirty-seven percent said they didn’t trust Fox, also the lowest level of distrust that any of the networks recorded.

There is some serious gloating going on

Meanwhile on the left: disbelief and resignation.

I used to get upset about this sort of thing, but now? Pft. Whatever.

Couple this with a new influx of corporate cash into political advertising and… well hey, democracy was nice while it lasted.

Boom!

Just remember this would not have been possible without the long term cooperation of the MSM. Acorn videos, Van Jones, Tea Parties, “Racism”, Ken Gladney, Anita Dunn, Kevin Jennings, ¿Quien sabe? and Sarah Palin’s “Acknowledged Grandchild”, all ignored, misrepresented, delayed or otherwise not covered by the MSM…

…and that’s just in the last year!

The difference, how many days did it that the MSM to cover O’Keefe and Acorn, days, even weeks.

How many days did it take Fox to cover the story? On the net same day. On TV? I saw it this morning.

That’s it in a nutshell!

Oh and Fox, don’t get cocky, if you fall into the MSM’s habits you will suffer the same fate and deserve it.
