Moving On

erick_erickson1From RedState.com, By: Erick Erickson, January 29th, 2013 –

I was not going to say anything, but rather just fade away.  I suppose though with rumors and reports I should say something.

My voicemail and inbox are, as I type, filling up.  I have turned my phone off as the only way to get it to stop ringing.

Yes, I can confirm I am leaving CNN.  It was a very, very difficult decision.  I appreciate their willingness to keep me on, but my wife and I decided it was time to move on.

Clint Eastwood and Disrespect

Clint Eastwood

From AFR.org, Nelson Hultberg, September 1, 2012 –The political left in America is outraged at Clint Eastwood’s recent presentation at the GOP convention. The shock and disbelief of Rachel Maddow at MSNBC and the Blitzer gang at CNN is heavy with condemnation of this inimitable American icon.

The establishment media response has basically come down as follows: “Weirdest thing I’ve ever seen.” “What was he thinking?” “Have the Republicans gone daft?” “The Democrats must have sent Clint to the GOP so as to sabotage their convention.” “This was inexcusably disrespectful.”

Yes, indeed, it was disrespectful. But what kind of humans allow themselves to be enslaved by a Marxist mandarin and his bureaucratic henchmen with a smile on their face and kind words about their enslavers?
