Their interview/article on Pam Geller was tough but fair.

I think it is an excellent example of how to do a “hostile” interview, dealing with someone you disagree with fundamentally.

I hit the left side of the ‘sphere a bit so when they do it right they deserve a pat.

Good show.

Memeorandum thread here.

Update: Jim Hoff mentions the Washington post bloggers are also giving credit to Pam, but he teases them for putting a clip of her in a bikini.

Let’s cut to the chase: Pam is an extraordinarily beautiful woman who looks even better in person. Any picture is going to get hits because of that, so you might has well go whole hog in the Stacy McCain vein.

Update 2: Stacy updates on Pam and the Bikini and exploding heads at LGF

But Melissa Harris Lacewell of the Nation is making some excellent points on Morning Joe.

She hits Breitbart, the administration and the NAACP but notes that it was the advocacy of the white farmers who were helped that turned this story around.

I also didn’t know Schrrot’s families history in the civil rights movement, Barnicle made an excellent point about how a person suddenly becomes famous but that’s a difference in culture.

Joe points out the actual timeline and defends Fox’s piece in the timeline, and Lacewell points out that she has more anger for the NAACP and the administration presumably because they should have known better.

Just before she was introduced Joe talked about “fringe elements on both sides” and coincidentally introduced her next. She joked saying I hope I’m not part of that fringe. Since she writes for the Nation, for me that would be the default assumption but her presentation was anything but fringe.

I like pleasant surprises like this.

…at the reclusive leftist back in 2008 when she posted each part of the film from youtube and wrote the following:

The pattern is the same, from Washington to Texas, from Iowa to Nevada, from Maine to Minnesota: Obama workers arrive early at each caucus place and take control of the premises and the process. Hillary supporters are intimidated, told their names aren’t registered, even physically barred from the site. Busloads of mysterious strangers arrive and cast votes for Obama. Sign-in sheets disappear; voter tallies are falsified. Over and over and over again, the pattern is the same.

How did this happen? Simple. The Obama campaign spent the entire year prior to the election planning the whole thing out. They saw an opportunity to game the system and they took it. At “Camp Obama” training centers, Obama campaign officials schooled volunteers in the fine art of stealing caucuses. And I have to hand it to them: they did a great job. When Obama points to his campaign as evidence of his executive experience, I’m inclined to agree. He’s definitely proven himself to be an executive-level criminal.

Do I sound angry? I am. There’s something about elderly women being bullied and denied the chance to vote — for a woman for President! — that makes me a little hot under the collar. Whenever somebody talks about Obama as the progressive candidate, the democratic candidate, the agent of hope and change, it’s all I can do anymore to keep from puking.

My post was a year ago and referenced Violet’s posts from a year earlier. To give you some perspective the above post was from October 15, 2008, Ted Kennedy was still alive, Scott Brown was an unknown state senator, a Tea Party was what little girls had with friends, Charles Johnson was still sane, and this blog didn’t exist. It’s so long ago that I was gainfully employed working 40 hours a week at a job I loved!

I posted about this back in August 2009 saying explaining why he he can’t allowing anything to happen on the Gladney case:

As Violet actually read the incident reports and I didn’t I don’t know if the SEIU were Senator Obama’s foot soldiers in that campaign, but that would be my bet.

I wonder what would happen if they talked? After all presidents come and go but the Union will still be there.

She has several posts on the subject of the president’s primary tactics going back as far as September of 2008. In fact the declarations of objections is dated July 4th 2008.

The significance? These things were known by the left two years ago. There were some on the left who wanted to get it out, to shout it to the rafters and they were shut down. They understood what was coming and wanted to prevent it. Some like Lynette Long voted for Palin and were excoriated for it, others like Violet here voted for Cynthia McKinney (ugh).

Now Violet here and I violently disagree on Religion, Abortion, George Bush, the War, the Economy etc. By every measurable standard she is very far left, in her eyes by every measurable standard I am very far right but let me tell you something. She is honest and honorable. She saw this happening two years ago and unlike the media or most democrats she (like Hillbuzz) absolutely refused to go along with it because as she put it on August 28th 2008:

Who will be the first African-American to win the nomination of his or her party without cheating?

Because, you know, it’s not Obama.

And if you don’t have time to slog through the 500-page Caucus Analysis website, here’s another link to that 98-page book version. It’s horrifying stuff. As you listen to Opossum’s speech tonight, just think of all those busloads of people from Illinois arriving to pose as Iowa voters in the caucus…and all those thugs in Texas physically barring Hillary supporters from voting…and all those union fixers in Nevada dropping Hillary ballots in the toilets…

If you didn’t understand why the DOJ will not investigate the black panther stuff, you do now.

The Memeorandum thread is here, and a PJ media story as well. Two years too late.

Update: Hillbuzz explains what this meant:

until 2008, we were all lifelong, unquestioning, party loyal Democrats who never in our lives dreamed our party would be responsible for thuggery like this.

The best way we can describe the feeling we have when we think about the DNC is to remember what the human characters on the TV show “V” felt like when they saw the masks ripped off the “Visitors”, revealing them to be lizard people underneath. Even people who had been helping the Visitors, and trying to convince others that they were really here to “serve the human race” in the non-cook book sense were instantly transformed into Resistance fighters when they saw what really lurked behind those masks.

So it is for many lifelong Democrats out there, including such prominent names as Lynn Forester de Rothschild as well, who will never look at the DNC the same way again…not after its mask has been ripped off so spectacularly.

He elaborates further in a later post:

One of our greatest frustrations in life remains the fact that we were never able to get the Media and American public interested in the truth about Obama’s fraud and intimidation during the 2008 primaries, but we see clearly now that America just wasn’t ready to face the truth about Obama yet. They didn’t want to see who he really is, or what he did to get to where he is. They wanted to believe the myth Tim Russert, Chris Matthews, and Keith Olbermann promoted heavily on MSNBC. Anyone who spoke the truth was attacked, maligned, and destroyed…like the contemptible little boy who had the audacity to tell the world the corpulent, over-indulged emperor had no clothes.

Well, it sure feels like Americans are more willing to listen to the naked truth about Obama now.

Now the MSM will ignore this as they did in 2008, but I don’t think the American voter will.

Update 2: Michelle Malkin connects dots:

In my Liz Carter article, I mentioned the incredible tale of the NAACP distrusting the Main Stream Media.

FireDogLake found themselves on the opposite side of the MSM during the great Obamacare debate and found themselves questioning the media as well.

The signicifance? Once you start questioning the media you stop taking certain things on faith, such as our troops as murderers:

I want to first start by saying that Wikileaks has really misled the public on the details of this video. They made it sound like it was an unprovoked massacre of unarmed civilians, and so it angers me when I wasted my time watching this video to see nothing like that.

Now in comments people are taking different sides but the very fact that there are people taking sides here is incredible. The times they are a changin.

No wonder CNN is suddenly trying the truth about Tea Party rallies.
