Reason number 1,352 why I don’t watch MSDNC

In not dignifying at least the office if not the man, the famed MSDNC duo of Olbermann and Matthews lose dignity themselves. Of course, they had none in the first place.

They also lose dignity for their network, but I guess the network bigwigs are finding their niche as evidenced by the recent addition of Air America’s Rachel Maddow.

President Bush has more class than both of these “pundits” combined.

Here’s more stuff I wanted to blog on but didn’t get to this week.

Chris Lufter was an able leader of the Waukesha Taxpayers League. It will be impossible to replace her. Hopefully she gets to enjoy her family now.

Remember how after the I-35 bridge in Minneapolis collapse, many shrilly indicted the infrastructure. I’m not saying everything’s rosy but, Federal investigators say design error, too much weight doomed I-35W bridge.

Holding the first of a two-day hearing before it releases final findings and recommendations, the National Transportation Safety Board said Thursday the collapse in Minneapolis was caused by a fatal design error. The error allowed an accumulation of weight added to the bridge over its 40-year lifespan — plus the weight associated with a new construction project — to finally topple it, killing 13 and injuring 145. [Emphasis mine.]

H-1B Visa Reform Takes Shape to Address Fraud, Procedural Nightmares

The agency responsible for granting H-1B visa applications plans to tighten up its procedures for vetting and approving the applications in the wake of a report indicating as many as 20 percent of the applications may be fraudulent or technically flawed.

Immigration needs to be fixed. Soon.

This story by Dan Shelley, former news director of WTMJ radio, sounds like the sour grapes we’ve heard from former Bush Adminstration officials (Scott MacClellan, I’m looking at you). Here’s a response from Charlie Sykes that Milwaukee Magazine should have offered before it ran an obvious hit piece.

If the Fairness Doctrine makes a comeback like Chuck Schumer and many on the left wish, although some say it won’t happen, will conservatives get equal time with The Washington Post and MSDNC’s Chris “My Job Is To Make Obama Presidency a Success” Matthews and Keith Olbermann?

Presidential politics

UPDATE: Mike Gallagher at Townhall feels the same way I do about the talking heads all up in arms over Huckabee’s ad,

But allow me to describe what really happened this week over this preposterous flap. Americans who are completely disgusted with the full frontal assault on anything and everything Christian paid attention. They simply could not believe their eyes and ears, that mean-spirited, Christmas-hating pundits and liberal media elitists were actually whining and complaining that someone (perhaps) had the audacity to display a Christian symbol during a Christian message that celebrated Christmas.

UPDATE II: And one more. Who the heck cares if Obama is Muslim? As I say repeatedly, I am more concerned with their record and their positions than their religion. Geez. Let’s elect an athiest, if his positions are right.

OK, let me get this off my chest.

First, Mike Huckabee’s Christmas ad. Chris Matthews and Donny Deustch discussed this on Hardball and were very negative. Many on the Left are, too. Right or wrong, if they play and discuss it much more like that, there will be a backlash. Millions of Americans would see that ad and say, “It’s about time.”

Second, Rush said something about a picture of Hillary Clinton in which she looked old.

“Will Americans want to watch a woman get older before their eyes on a daily basis? And that woman, by the way, is not going to want to look like she’s getting older, because it will impact poll numbers. It will impact perceptions.”

Look, I agree with Rush on a lot of things, but this is not one of them.

AP: Tancredo to drop out of GOP presidential race. He won’t be missed. He endorsed Romney?

Ron Paul raises oodles and gobs of money. But will anyone vote for him?
