Ana Marie Cox Has the Vapors

Considering that she made her name by joking about anal sex, it seems a bit much to see her hyperventilating over John McCain's comment that MoveOn should be "thrown out of the country." One would think he was a judge sentencing MoveOn to become another "Man Without a Country". Let's see if we can get MooOn to demand an apology from Senator McCain.

NY Times Gave Discount for "Betray Us" Ad?

Whooo-boy are they going to regret this.

According to Abbe Serphos, director of public relations for the Times, "the open rate for an ad of that size and type is $181,692."

A spokesman for confirmed to The Post that the liberal activist group had paid only $65,000 for the ad - a reduction of more than $116,000 from the stated rate.

You know how it is; the Times should be free to charge whatever it wants for a full-page ad; that's not the issue. But this does mean that they can't turn around and claim that they're just running the ad, that they have nothing to do with the content. One is forced to conclude that they subsidized this particular ad because it fits their editorial policy.

Blogger Conference Call with Senator John McCain

Senator McCain began by reiterating his call for Democratic candidates to denounce the advertisement which shamefully referred to General Petraeus as General "Betray Us".

Most of the calls this week, were not surprisingly on General Petraeus' presentation of the current status in Iraq. There is no doubt that Senator McCain sounded more upbeat and positive about the war and (no coincidence) his own political campaign, which is starting to benefit. Polls have been showing McCain in a strong rebound since the summer.

The new Washington Post-ABC News poll shows that Giuliani's support has eroded ten percentage points since July, to 28 percent. In February, Giuliani enjoyed the support of 53 percent of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents.

Trailing Giuliani is former Sen. Fred Thompson of Tennessee, who officially launched his campaign last week. He had 19 percent support, nearly double what he had in April, when he began to seriously consider a White House bid.

Sen. John McCain of Arizona, whose campaign has been beset by fund-raising difficulties, showed 18 percent support. Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney has 10 percent, which is about the level of GOP support he has had since April.

Thompson is getting a brief political honeymoon; we'll see how he looks after the next debate in Charleston. But for McCain to be back within 10 points of Guiliani is quite a Lazarus routine. Indeed, the real question is how long Romney can continue with such miniscule polling support.

Cited for Breaking the Christmas in Cambodia story (at Kerry Haters):

Hugh Hewitt: KerryHaters was on this story a long time ago. How could the elite media not have asked these questions before now?

Ankle-Biting Pundits: Our friends Pat and Kitty at Kerry Haters deserve the blog equivalent of a Pulitzer for their coverage of Kerry's intricate web of lies regarding Vietnam.
