Politico is reporting today that Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel will host a conference call Saturday with Organizing for Action, the retooled Obama campaign team. Will the call serve as a test drive for a 2016 team-up? In any case, Emanuel doesn’t need OFA to devise #PresidentRahmSlogans — Twitter has that covered. A fishhead in every […]

You won’t be able to see the next big change on Twitter, but it might affect whose tweets you see. It was announced today that Twitter was tweaking its metadata to include an algorithm that “grades” tweets with values of “high,” “medium,” “low” or “none.” Hence, it will now be possible to rank tweets according to […]
Cheer up, Harry — Michael Moore might think you’re a weenie, but you’re the biggest weenie. As Twitchy reported, liberals slammed Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid last month for compromising on a filibuster reform deal. Moore was angry then, and he’s angrier now with news that senate Republicans have managed to delay the confirmation of Secretary of […]
As Twitchy reported, Columbia University Professor Marc Lamont Hill appeared on CNN yesterday to lend his take on the then-ongoing Christopher Dorner manhunt, which he said was “like watching ‘Django Unchained’ in real life. It’s kind of exciting!” Hill appeared on “The O’Reilly Factor” tonight to clarify his remarks, but did he use his appearance on […]
If Elvis Costello is reading this, he might want to consider taking out a restraining order, because Jason Biggs is tweeting some seriously creepy stuff at him. Apparently, Costello is sitting near Biggs on an airplane. Biggs, of course, took this as a good excuse to … ahem … be himself. I know a famous […]
Tons of celebrities were issuing Valentine’s Day tweets today. However, we doubt that any generated the hilarity caused by Chris Brown’s attempted salute to women. Then again, when your primary claim to fame is beating up your girlfriend, people take you a little less seriously when you talk about treating women well. No. Way. RT […]
Whatever we think about Barack Obama, we won’t begrudge him for taking his wife on a nice date for Valentine’s Day. Heck, we’ll even say that he has great taste in restaurants for selecting José Andrés’ renowned “Minibar.” However, we can’t help but point out the fact that his date night probably ruined Valentine’s Day for […]
Both Republicans and Democrats have been using the occasion of Valentine’s Day to score points and take political jabs at each other. Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.) sent Rep. John Boehner some “romantic” Twitter poetry, but the House Speaker might be playing hard to get. Maybe he responded with a discreet direct message, but for public […]

Cat Scratch Tweets: Ted Nugent calls Luke Russert on his ‘soulless nasty punkass journalist 101 violations’
Oh, dear! Looks like Ted Nugent doesn’t care for Luke Russert all that much… Lol — K.D. Carlson (@kdcarlson15) February 14, 2013 Heh. They did have a bit of a run-in recently, after the State of the Union address, which musician Ted Nugent attended. Ted Nugent walking into #SOTU with jeans, camo boots, black button […]
Rep Cohen says he learned that the woman was his daughter three years ago, hadn’t told the public until now — Frank Thorp V (@frankthorpNBC) February 14, 2013 Twitter was buzzing yesterday over a photo of Democrat Rep.

As Twitchy reported, Tesla Motors co-founder Elon Musk took to Twitter to dispute John Broder’s account of his Model S running out of charge during a mileage test, leaving him stranded and in need of a tow. Musk called the story in the New York Times “fake” and said he had the car’s logs to […]
During a Google+ Hangout this afternoon, responding to a question about immigration, President Obama made a stunning confession: Obama asked about record number of deportations, says he’s “POTUS, not emperor, my job is to execute laws that have passed.” — lesley clark (@lesleyclark) February 14, 2013 And to trample on the Constitution, evidently. Sounds like […]
WOW. Seriously, Democrats? Stay classy!

His point is simple: If Pistorius hadn’t had a gun, he wouldn’t have shot his girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp. But South Africa is a violent place, as Boy George knows: Another young girl gang-raped in South Africa.

President Obama is pushing for the hourly minimum wage to be raised to $9, but according to a study by the Center for Economic and Policy Research, that’s not nearly enough. The study suggests that, in order to keep up with increased worker productivity, the minimum wage should be increased to $21.72 per hour. No, really: […]

Wow. Author Joyce Carol Oates recently grossly played the race card, after wishing that NRA members get shot. Now she is turning her hate-filled rantings on Catholics. Are you Catholic? Well, you must be out of your mind, according to Ms. Oates. She made a similar disgusting remark recently, when praising the repugnant Andrew “Uterine Forensic […]

On Thursday morning, Sarah Palin shared a link to Neal Boortz’s latest column, “Why the Liberal Hatred of Citizens With Guns.” This isn’t about saving lives. It’s all about breaking the spirit of independent-minded and self-reliant Americans who still believe that the Constitution is the supreme law of the land, and that the term “shall not […]

NRA Chief Wayne LaPierre penned an op-ed for The Daily Caller in which he asserted the importance of the Second Amendment in modern American society.

Reeva Steenkamp, murdered girlfriend of Oscar Pistorius, used Twitter to condemn violence against women
“Blade Runner” Oscar Pistorius, a South African paralympic champion and the first double amputee to run in the Olympics, has been charged with the Valentine’s Day murder of his 30-year-old girlfriend, Reeva Steenkamp.
Among her final tweets were messages speaking out against rape and other violence against women.
The bogus claim was reported by The Independent’s Nick Duerden: Sinead O’Connor is telling me that, as a child, she could run like the wind. “I was fast, a great sprinter: 100m in 11.3 seconds.” The Irish national record is 11.40 seconds. If O’Connor ran 11.3 seconds for 100 meters “as a child,” she would have […]
