JournoLister Ben Smith and Matt Drudge were on the job last night spreading misinformation. Our comments section last night was also on the job was on the job and a lot of great information was provided.
JournoLister Ben Smith’s article still has as the headlinel: “Clinton Pushed Meek To Quit Florida Race“. Matt Drudge featured a double headline (“CLINTON PUSHED BLACK CANDIDATE TO GET OUT; OBAMA CAMPAIGNED FOR MEEK LAST WEEK”). One headline duplicated the Smith misinformation but provocatively replaced Meek’s name with “black candidate”; the other headline was about how Barack Obama campaigned for Meek last week. The pictures also added to the ugliness. The implication from Drudge is “racist” Bill and good ol’ Barack.
JournoLister Smith is wrong because Bill Clinton did not “push” anyone to do anything – Kendrick Meek says so. Bill Clinton was asked for advice by Kendrick Meek and Bill Clinton provided it. As for Matt Drudge, we discussed his protection of Barack Obama two days ago and of course we all know Drudge’s history with Bill Clinton.
Let’s put some facts on the table for misleading JournoLister Ben Smith because his Clinton hate and Obama love married to sloppiness and haste misinform Americans (Matt Drudge immediately ran away from his deceptive headlines and today has a picture of a smiling Marco Rubio and the headline “Dem Nightmare”).
Drive by shooter Ben Smith knows by now Bill Clinton did not push anyone to do anything. Smith also does not bother to inform his readers of the history in the Florida Senate race. Specifically JournoLister Ben Smith looks the other way when it comes to Barack Obama.
Barack Obama’s history is to get rid of candidates. That is how he started his career. Obama dug up dirt on his opponents to advance his career. Obama anonymously hit John Edwards with the haircut story and anonymously smeared Bill Clinton about 9/11 and Hillary Clinton as the “Senator from Punjab”.
It was also the Barack Obama thugs who tried to get rid of Joe Sestak. Barack Obama thugs tried to get rid of Andrew Romanoff, Barack Obama thugs tried to get rid of David Paterson. Now Obama thugs want to get rid of Kendrick Meek.Typical. And let me repeat that Ben Smith knows who doctored that video from The War Room, who made it sound like Mickey Kantor was using the n-word. Ben Smith knows. It's his damn job to report who it was. Instead he sits on it.
Okay . . .
Sunday is Halloween. A big holiday for my family in every generation. And my kids love it and love getting dressed up and going trick or treating.
Except my oldest son.
Who told me this year that he had to do something over at a friend's. Could he be there Sunday? He'd go over Sunday day and just go to school on Monday with the guy.
Well sure. I know the parents, if they're fine with it, I'm fine with it.
He's smart, my oldest, but he doesn't think of everything.
So I call -- which he didn't expect me to do -- and he's already told them it was okay. Well that's fine. Kids get excited, I'm not mad.
They promise it's just going to be a small party --
His friend is having a party.
That's fine. I'm still okay with it.
But I mention that I'm kind of surprised that he didn't say anything about the party to me.
"Oh, that's because ___ is coming and you know she's the girl he likes so --"
The girl he likes?
My son now has a girlfriend.
I'm officially old.
I'm okay with it. And it's not like they were planning alone time. This is a party with adults monitoring.
But I'm just kind of sad that my baby -- my first baby -- is now old enough to have a girlfriend. And old enough not to want Mom to know.
