In an appearance on Fox News' O'Reilly Factor yesterday, liberal pundit Bill Maher has targeted the GOP as a group of “racist, religious fanatics.” Maher has made a name for himself as a “comedic” critic of the conservative movement for years, rising to prominence through his role as host of Comedy Central's Politically Incorrect. Though he has gained a reputation for viewing all issues through his liberal worldview, his recent tirades against Christianity have been over the top, even for him.

President Obama and the Democrats in Congress seem determined to play the class envy game in the tax policy of our nation. While Republicans have stood firm in demanding that the Bush Tax Cuts should remain in effect for all Americans, Obama and his allies are resisting what he calls “tax cuts for millionaires and billionaires.”

Perhaps sensing an inability to defeat his opponent based on the issues, Florida Representative Alan Grayson has resorted to fact distortion in an attempt to win the reelection to the House. In a political advertisement put out by Grayson, the deceptive Democrat attempted to equate his Republican challenger, former state Senator Daniel Webster, to the Taliban for his allegedly “fanatical religious beliefs.” Unfortunately for Grayson, FactCheck.org did its homework and uncovered Grayson's ruse.

Just after lunch on Wednesday, September 29, a hearing convened in the Rayburn House Office Building. Brad Sherman (D-Calif.), Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Terrorism, Nonproliferation and Trade, called to order a meeting of academics and lawyers to discuss the advisability of a congressional clampdown on “jihadist websites.”

As Republicans appear poised to steal the Democrat's majority in November, it seems predictable to expect a variety of controversies to unfold as a result of last-minute attempts to discredit the Republican Party. The latest involves allegations made by illegal immigrant Nicky Diaz Santillan against California's Republican gubernatorial candidate, Meg Whitman.
