Wishful thinking?

It's funny how transparent Charles can be in his partisanship for or against certain US presidential hopefuls:

When Ron Paul was dropped from the Fox debate, Charles responded with derision. When Duncan Hunter got dropped, suddenly it's "Duncan Hunter counterattacks".

When Huckabee won the Republican caucus in Iowa, Charles is so angry he can't bring himself to say anything much about the result (CJ previously described Huckabee as a "a leftist in evangelist’s clothing" - presumably like a white Jesse Jackson?). When Rudy Giuliani(who got a miniscule share of the Iowa caucus) is interviewed on PJMedia, suddenly the former mayor of New York is a "Top GOP Candidate".

A lot can happen in the next few months, but don't expect your insightful analysis of events to come from LGF. The folks there have an agenda (and who knows, they might even be making a little bit of money on the side promoting certain candidates...)

Hey, learn to consistently spell President Giuliani correctly, you're going to be using it a lot in the future.

It'll be fun to see how Charles & Co. try to reconcile the two conflicting tin-hat theories about Barack Obama:

(a) he is a crypto-Muslim
(b) he is a member of an "extremist" Christian church (meme coming soon to a wacky ultra-right website near you).

This is somewhat reminiscent of the conflict between two pet theories about Hillary Clinton:

(a) she's a lesbian
(b) she once had a male lover of hers murdered.

And once again Charles is whining about the comments on a Washington Post article, ignoring his own commenters issues while at the same time ignoring the fact that Howard Kurtz's earlier article criticizing LGF's comments also clearly stated that the WaPo's comments were frequently over the top as well.

When in doubt, just call them all liberals. Nice.

If Huckabee is "a leftist in evangelist’s clothing", what might Chucky think of William Jennings Bryan?

An easy way to remember how to Giuliani's name is to repeat the Republican mantra: "I before you."

Re: V
I got you one to remember Giuliani spelling:

God before I and I before yoU, Lie Is A National Intelligence.

But democrats can do the same without the God thing:

Certainly Lie In TONs
