So We Hear...

Then Senator Barack Obama received a $101,332 bonus from American International Group in the form of political contributions according to The two biggest Congressional recipients of bonuses from the A.I.G. are Senators Chris Dodd and Senator Barack Obama.


Rush Limbaugh had previously stated that he would welcome the opportunity and has issued an invitation to Barack Obama to a debate. Now he is saying that since Obama gets all of his talking points from his teleprompter, Rush is issuing the debate invitation to Obama's teleprompter instead.


John McCain's daughter, Meghan, has a blog and enjoyed increased readership during her father's campaign for president. Ms. McCain also writes an article for the online publication The Daily Beast. In her March 9 column and we believe in an effort to increase her readership, Ms. McCain wrote the following about Ann Coulter:

"I straight up don’t understand this woman or her popularity. I find her offensive, radical, insulting, and confusing all at the same time."

We think those characteristics are a part of Ann's charm. To her credit, Ann refused to utter a single comment about Meghan's attack, which nipped the controversy in the bud, so Meghan could not use a spat with Ann to further the popularity of her blog, her column, and even herself. Just as Rush Limbaugh is much too smart for Harry Reid and Barack Obama, Ann is too smart for the likes of Meghan McCain. We saw her on Sean Hannity's All American Panel. She comes across as an uninformed valley girl.

And finally, for an example of the pot calling the kettle black, let's talk about Congress and their outrage of AIG. Brent Bozell III wrote an article today that begins with the following paragraph:

Outrage burst forth from lawmakers in Washington when the story broke that insurance giant AIG still planned to dole out $165 million in bonuses to executives while it teeters near bankruptcy, kept afloat by taxpayers. But the outrage is mostly coming from hypocrites. Just days earlier, President Obama signed an omnibus spending bill with $12.8 billion in self-serving earmarks for legislators during the economic crisis. How can the president and Congress lecture AIG? Don't the earmarking hogs look like hypocrites?
