Manic Monday - The Left Is Coming Unhinged, And Obama Gets Grilled

One full week, and the first Monday after the mid-term elections, I offer some examples of the manic state of the media, the American left, as well as an amazingly insightful question by a young lady in a "Town Hall" in India.

First, from "Inside Washington," guest Mark Shields of PBS said Sarah Palin's decision to resign as the governor of Alaska without completing her term is "like Ted Kennedy's Chappaquiddick."

I'm waiting to hear a report about the number of deceased Mrs. Palin left in her wake.

Next, Lawrence O'Donnell of MSNBC's "The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell" admits his political leanings.

Unlike Glenn Beck, who for some reason takes issue with this, I'm glad O'Donnell has come clean and admitted his political leanings. I thought Beck wanted to "Have this debate" between traditional American values and policies versus progressive/liberal/socialist policies, so I don't understand why he takes issue with O'Donnell coming clean.

I think it would be best if all media personalities would step forward and tell us for whom they get tingles... so to speak, of course.

I will credit O'Donnell with his honest commentary regarding the chances of his desired policies being enacted. If only more on the far left would see that they really are the minority.

Next, this from a woman I usually consider at least somewhat rational. Mara Liasson of NPR, as part of the "Sunday Group" on Fox News Sunday, equates Nancy Pelosi to Winston Churchill:

Perhaps she's putting out the extra-firm leftist mantra now, in an effort not to be fired for saying the wrong thing during an appearance on Fox News Channel? Sheesh...

And Finally, a young Indian girl asks the question of our President that, sadly, our own "Fourth Estate" will not.

During a "Town Hall" style event at St. Xavier College, a student inquired:

"Why is Pakistan so important an ally to America, so far as America has never called it a terrorist state?"

President Obama said of the question that it was okay, he knew it was coming. Uh-huh. Sure you did.

Mr. Articulate had a few problems expressing himself. He is a sham.

I don't think Glenn Beck has issue with O'Donnell being a self proclaimed socialist.I think he (Beck) has issue with him saying something out in the open but operating "in the shadows."

O'Donnell's courage and honestly have a limit. Admitting it is one thing. Making political moves and wielding influence in the shadows, veiled as something else is different.
