The Hypocritical Summer of Ted Nugent

The Hypocritical Summer of Ted Nugent | Edited For Clarity Politics | Scoop.it

An interesting article on Nugent, who rails on about family values and how "free love" destroyed civilization as we know it, or something like that. The problem? He's no bastion of family values. Like having 7 kids with five different women. And only married two of them.

WBEC radio picks up Mike Huckabee as Limbaugh's successor - Berkshire Eagle Online

WBEC radio picks up Mike Huckabee as Limbaugh's successor - Berkshire Eagle Online | Edited For Clarity Politics | Scoop.it

Intersting tidbit:

 

"Barry predicted more stations would drop Limbaugh in favor of Huckabee once their existing 90-day renewable contracts with Premiere Radio Networks expire. He acknowledged that WBEC "broke" its contract with Limbaugh's syndicators by canceling the program on March 5."

 

So... if the contracts run Jan-Mar, how many will bail on April 1?

Rick Santorum: President Obama Shouldn’t Let Daughter Go To Mexico (VIDEO)

Rick Santorum: President Obama Shouldn’t Let Daughter Go To Mexico (VIDEO) | Edited For Clarity Politics | Scoop.it

Remember when Santorum was attacked a few weeks ago for continuing to campaign while his daughter was very ill and in the hospital? At the time, I defended Santorum. I said that by all evidence, he was a good dad, and that there was no legitimate reason to go after him. 

 

Now, he gives me reason to regret that.

 

"Rick Santorum said President Obama set a bad example and potentially endangered American tourists by letting his daughter, Malia Obama, go to Mexico on a vacation."

 

Malia went with friends to Oaxaca, a popular tourist destination - and one that is not on the State Department's warning list. There hasn't been much reporting on the trip, as the White House has asked - rightly so - that there not be much coverage of the children if they are not with their parents. Makes sense, right? 

 

But Santorum has decided this is a great way to jab at the President again. Never mind the fact that the State Department's travel warnings don't include Oaxaca. That kind of salient fact doesn't carry any weight when your whole goal is to try to make your statements as negative as possible.
