Obama’s former chief of staff Rahm Emanuel might make a go for 2016, two well-connected Democrats tell Lloyd Grove—as long as Hillary doesn’t. And the potty-mouthed Chicago mayor could win.
Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel is said by well-connected Democrats to be considering the idea of running for president if Hillary Clinton opts out of the 2016 race.

Longtime CNN anchor Anderson Cooper has finally said it: “Fact is, I’m gay.” In an e-mail to Andrew Sullivan at The Daily Beast/Newsweek, Cooper declared, “I’ve always believed that who a reporter votes for, what religion they are, who they love, should not be something they have to discuss publicly. As long as a journalist shows fairness and honesty in his or her work, their private life shouldn’t matter.”
Well, in that case, Cooper fails, despite his claim “I’m not an activist.” His work on gay issues hasn’t had fairness — matching an aggressive pro-homosexual bias at CNN – perhaps in part to keep angry gay activists at bay.
We can list a few examples, below, but first, here’s the meaty part of Cooper’s note to Sullivan:
Recently, however, I’ve begun to consider whether the unintended outcomes of maintaining my privacy outweigh personal and professional principle. It’s become clear to me that by remaining silent on certain aspects of my personal life for so long, I have given some the mistaken impression that I am trying to hide something – something that makes me uncomfortable, ashamed or even afraid. This is distressing because it is simply not true.
I’ve also been reminded recently that while as a society we are moving toward greater inclusion and equality for all people, the tide of history only advances when people make themselves fully visible. There continue to be far too many incidences of bullying of young people, as well as discrimination and violence against people of all ages, based on their sexual orientation, and I believe there is value in making clear where I stand.
The fact is, I’m gay, always have been, always will be, and I couldn’t be any more happy, comfortable with myself, and proud.
I have always been very open and honest about this part of my life with my friends, my family, and my colleagues. In a perfect world, I don’t think it’s anyone else’s business, but I do think there is value in standing up and being counted. I’m not an activist, but I am a human being and I don’t give that up by being a journalist.
Since my early days as a reporter, I have worked hard to accurately and fairly portray gay and lesbian people in the media – and to fairly and accurately portray those who for whatever reason disapprove of them. It is not part of my job to push an agenda, but rather to be relentlessly honest in everything I see, say and do. I’ve never wanted to be any kind of reporter other than a good one, and I do not desire to promote any cause other than the truth.
Cooper self-deports himself from Truth-land when he says he has no cause, but just paragraphs before, he says he had to come out of the closet to advance “greater inclusion and equality for all people,” to advance “the tide of history.” CNN and many other liberal journalists have granted a large berth to gay activists with “the tide of history” in their minds.
The fan site All Things Anderson counts Cooper as an “undying champion” of the LGBT crowd: “Today when we read Anderson Cooper’s public acknowledgment that he is gay we were elated. Elated not only for him and for the LGBT community, for whom Cooper has been an undying champion, but also for his fans.”
Here’s just a few quick examples:
– This goes back a long time: On June 30, 1997, then-ABC reporter Anderson Cooper provided a long, sympathetic portrait of two elderly gay males marching in New York City’s annual Gay Pride parade. Carole Simpson introduced the story: “The question of legalizing gay marriages has become a political issue this year, but for many gay couples a longtime committed relationship is as sacred as a marriage.” No one opposed to gay marriage was invited to appear.
– On November 28, 2007, Cooper began moderating a Republican debate by telling the viewers at home “all the questions tonight come from you.” Standing up in the audience after being flown in by the debate organizers, retired general Keith Kerr threw a hardball question at the Republican contenders about the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy toward gays in the military. He listed his military credentials and proclaimed he was gay, and then said “I want to know why you think that American men and women in uniform are not professional enough to serve with gays and lesbians?” After several candidate answers, Gen. Kerr interrupted and began lecturing the Republicans on how insensitive they are to gays in the military. Bloggers quickly discovered Kerr was a Hillary Clinton supporter, and not just a supporter, but a man whose name was listed as part of the Clinton campaign’s Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Steering Committee. CNN claimed they had no idea.
– On April 14, 2009, Cooper crudely joked with David Gergen that the Tea Party were “tea-baggers,” crude sexual slang for testicles on someone’s face. “It’s hard to talk when you’re tea-bagging,” Cooper said.

While magazines across the country offer readers their pick of the world’s “most influential people,” this year, GQ magazine is bringing you the “The 25 Least Influential People Alive” — and on the list are MSNBC host Ed Schultz, and, of all people, President Barack Obama. This is the same magazine that oddly, named Obama “Leader of the Year“ in 2009 and ”Man of the Year“ in 2008 while calling Sarah Palin ”dangerous“ and ”poisonous.”
But now, GQ has weighed the data and places Obama as the 25th least influential person in the world. Joining the president and Schultz are Daily Beast and Newsweek editor Tina Brown, along with Hosni Mubarak, Hank Williams Jr. and John Boehner, who came in at number 24.
While the issue has not yet been published, TVNewswer brought us a taste of what GQ had to say about Schultz:
…Then there pundits like Ed Schultz. Do you watch “The Ed Show” on MSNBC? Of course you don’t. No one does. The only reason people watch “The Ed Show” is they’re working out in a hotel gym and they can’t find a staff member to change the channel to ESPN.

Yesterday Michelle Goldberg reported on the Glenn Beck event in Israel. Well, reporting is probably too strong a word. It’s a rambling post which states a great many liberal verities about Beck without even offering proof for them. I immediately found myself wondering if Goldberg was on vacation or if NewsBeast had actually send her overseas to “report” on Beck? It’s not clear. In any case, toward the end of her article she inserts this telling little vignette, bold my emphasis:
On Tuesday I stood with a mixed group of Americans and Israelis, most of us Jewish, looking at the site of Beck’s final rally…Looking at the site, my colleagues traded wry quips about Beck’s messianic metamorphosis. As they did, a white-haired American woman admonished us. “If you want war, continue to listen to this,” she said. “But he”—Beck—“is only for peace. And we don’t follow him—we follow Jesus.”
So Goldberg’s “mixed group” of like-minded liberals were standing around trash-talking Beck loudly enough that strangers passing by noted it and responded. The response is brief but to the point, i.e. Beck is not a messiah to us, just someone we admire. This completely undercuts the thesis of Goldberg’s article, but rather than report that her thesis may not sit with the facts, she and her group proceed to argue with the white haired lady and her friends.

The hatred of the good for being the good. Ayn Rand.
I was shocked (shocked, I tell ya!) to find out that the liberal goosestepping fascists over at the beastly Daily were behind the silencing of free speech. Poor, poor Tina Brown, oh how the mighty has fallen.
The Palin post removal was pushed by a beast who scribbles for the Daily Beast. The spammer is a notorious hater. He best reflects the moochers, looters and destroyers that Ayn Rand so brilliantly describes in Atlas Shrugged. This, yet again, best displays destroyers at work or at play…..
