Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, the party’s 2008 vice presidential nominee, doled out some conservative red meat and blasted away at President Obama at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference, telling the thousands in attendance that Mr. Obama is a liar who has not shown leadership since winning a second term. Mrs. Palin also brought along what looked to be a 32-ounce “Big Gulp” to the podium with her Saturday. As the hall chuckled while she took a sip from the large cup, she told the CPAC audience not to worry, “Bloomberg’s not around.” Source: Washington Times. Twitter [...]

Yeah Real Funny Obama, How about another round of Golf? President Obama's Council on Jobs and Competitiveness met today in Durham, NC at Cree Inc., a company that manufactures energy-efficient LED lighting. One of the Council's recommendations to President Obama was to streamline the federal permit process for construction and infrastructure projects. It was explained to Obama that the permitting process can delay projects for "months to years ... and in many cases even cause projects to be abandoned ... I'm sure that when you implemented the Recovery Act your staff briefed you on many of these challenges." At this point, Obama smiled and interjected, "Shovel-ready was not as ... uh .. shovel-ready as we expected." The Council, led by GE's Jeffrey Immelt, erupted in [...]
Donald Trump said today he was "honored" to be the butt of so many jokes at the White House Correspondents' Association dinner, where he was lampooned for everything from his fixation on President Obama's birth certificate to his infamous hair. "Look, I knew what I was getting into, it's the lion's den," Trump told ABC News' David Kerley today. Trump has been very publicly flirting with a run for the Republican presidential nomination, and one thing he said he liked about the roasting he took was that none of his potential competitors for the GOP nod got much attention. "I've been there before over the years and I've never seen anything like took place last night, because so much of a focus was on me," he told Kerley. "They didn't mention other candidates, at least not with any [...]
Yesterday about twenty percent of the write-in ballots were counted. 98 percent were for Murkowski and 89% of those weren't challenged by Miller's poll watchers. DrewM did the math and at that rate Murkowski would win by about 1000 votes without even having to count the challenged ballots. In other words, the exact-spelling rule dispute will be moot if the the 89% rate persists. Miller must have done the math too because he's challenging a lot more ballots today, including these: According to Miller's poll watchers, the three voters who filled out those ballots should be disfranchised. By challenging ballots like these, which are clearly Murkowski votes and don't appear misspelled to me, Miller is ensuring that the pile of challenged ballots will have to be considered to determine [...]
