Martin Bashir, the embattled MSNBC show host who on Nov. 15 urged a crude and graphic form of punishment for Sarah Palin, resigned from the channel Wednesday. MSNBC could afford to do nothing less than force Bashir out in the wake of his hateful speech. Phil Griffin, the president of MSNBC, tried stonewalling the mounting criticism even after Bashir delivered an on-air apology, but the words and actions were too gross and hateful to allow Bashir to return. In the Nov. 15 remarks, Bashir attacked Palin for calling the national debt a form of slavery for American citizens.

Claiming "I know my American history," Sarah Palin on Sunday defended her claim that Paul Revere's ride was intended to warn the British they weren't going to take American arms.  At a stop in New England on her bus tour of the United States, Palin made the following statement about Paul Revere's historic ride:  “He who warned the British that they weren't going to be taking away our arms by ringing those bells and by making sure...

If you don't know by now about the truly sick comments MSNBC host Martin Bashir made about Sarah Palin, you need to see this video. And then, you might want to ask yourself how it is that Bashir is still on the air. And why aren't folks like Tom Brokaw and Chuck Todd, who claim to speak for NBC News, not speaking out about this? Those are some of the questions we asked in a spirited discussion on Howard Kurtz's "Media Buzz" Sunday morning on Fox News. Kurtz's other guest is Joe Concha, columnist at Mediaite.

WASHINGTON - Across Shannon McGinley's hometown of Bedford, N.H., this fall, women were talking about politics. At school gatherings and Bible study groups, women who had never followed political affairs suddenly were talking about a woman like them - a conservative mother trying to balance family and career. It started when the Republican presidential nominee, Sen. John McCain of Arizona, selected Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin for his running mate. Now, more than a month since the political spotlight has turned away from the failed GOP ticket, some of those whom Palin attracted to the political arena are seeking ways to keep a conversation going.

ABC anchorman Charles Gibson held his steely focus and kept Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin off balance through the final two parts of their highly anticipated three-part interview. In a Thursday conversation shown on Nightline, he pressed her about a shift in her position on global warning. Tonight on ABC World News, he vigorously quizzed her on a change in her stand on earmarks and a pork barrel project known as "The Bridge to Nowhere." Typical of the kinds of tough statements of context that preceded Gibson's questions: "But you turned against it [the bridge]

Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is in the news again, comparing her rough treatment by the news media with the "kid gloves" treatment of Senate hopeful Caroline Kennedy and suggesting that a kind of class prejudice explains the difference. I am not sure what passes for kid gloves in Alaska, but the thinness of Kennedy's resume has been noted repeatedly, and there is a YouTube mash-up of her using the verbal crutch "you know" 46 times in a five-minute interview. No experience and garbles the language.

NEW YORK - Gov. Sarah Palin of Alaska met her first foreign head of state yesterday as she crisscrossed New York City receiving foreign policy tutorials in advance of her vice presidential debate next week with Sen. Joe Biden, the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Palin - who scheduled a series of meetings with world leaders who were in town for the U.N. General Assembly - sat down first with President Hamid Karzai of Afghanistan, who told her of the need for more troops in his country and bonded with her over his baby son, Mirwais.

Sarah Palin, unfiltered, more than held her own on the national debate stage last night. She was folksy and charming and delivered her lines, even the stock ones, with conviction and brio. On style and charm and connecting with viewers at home, the newcomer seemed to have it all over Joe Biden, the veteran pol who dared to be boring at the outset and took quite a while to warm up. Palin locked into the camera lens from the start and never let go, wriggling her nose to take the edge off her sharpest lines.

Sarah Palin chose a slow news day before a holiday to shake up the political world, saying she will step down as governor of Alaska but leaving open the question of her political future. "We've got to put first things first. I love my job, and I love Alaska. I am doing what's best for Alaska," Palin said Friday at a televised news conference in her hometown of Wasilla. Palin said she hoped people would not be disappointed by the decision, which she said she had contemplated for some time.

Susan Reimer 's recent column regarding Sarah Palin was spot on and laugh-out-loud hilarious ( "Sarah Palin: the gift that keeps on giving," Nov.13). I did feel that she left out the true reason that this political and intellectual lightweight is still around, or as Ms. Reimer so eloquently puts it, is the "gift that keeps on giving. " And that reason is that she is a very, very attractive women with all the right physical attributes: great figure, pretty hair, beautiful eyes and white teeth combined with a winning smile!

Susan Reimer 's column regarding Sarah Palin does not speak well for the left ("Sarah Palin: the gift that keeps on giving," Nov. 13). Right now, Democrats in red states are running for political cover after supporting Obamacare. They prove right Governor Palin who warned against Obamacare's perils all along. Right now, we have more Americans in poverty and on food stamps than ever before and more Americans out of the workforce than ever before. Right now, Americans are losing health insurance and having their hours cut at work.

There are so many things to admire about John McCain. His service during Vietnam, his courage as a prisoner of war, his maverick nature in the hidebound U.S. Senate and, currently, his role as the only grown-up in the Republican Party. But I don't think I will ever be able to forgive him for Sarah Palin. His decision to pluck her out of Alaskan obscurity and put her on the presidential ticket in 2008 unleashed a genie that yaks incessantly, makes no sense and refuses to get back in the bottle.

In stepping down last week as a speaker at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine commencement, Dr. Ben Carson again took on the role of media/culture critic and martyr to "political correctness. " "Someday in the future, it is my hope and prayer that the emphasis on political correctness will decrease and we will start emphasizing rational discussion of differences so we can actually resolve problems and chart a course that is inclusive of everyone," he wrote to Hopkins Medicine Dean and CEO Dr. Paul B. Rothman.

President Barack Obama wants to invest an initial $110 billion in a study of the human brain that could have benefits as great as those achieved by the Human Genome Project. Maybe the first study should be done on the one-track minds of tea party Republicans who will undoubtedly oppose funding for the study because their brains are fixated on the single idea that government can do nothing right. After that, researchers could move on to figuring out Sarah Palin's brain. Perhaps they could answer this question: How can a person with so little knowledge and so little interest in acquiring knowledge imagine she has what it takes to be president of the United States?

WASHINGTON - On the eve of the vice-presidential debate, a new poll shows that most Americans regard Sarah Palin as unqualified to take over as president should it become necessary. The finding is a sharp reversal from earlier polling that showed she was considered qualified, and points to the heightened stakes for Palin in her faceoff with Delaware Sen. Joe Biden this evening. "If Palin does well, her performance will go a long way to rehabilitating her image," said John J. Pitney Jr., a Claremont McKenna College political scientist.

ST. PAUL, MINN. - A self-assured Sarah Palin passed a huge test this week by skillfully executing the biggest speech of her career. Now comes another question: What's next? Palin won high marks from both parties for her delivery of an address that attracted a record-breaking audience for a vice presidential nominee and buttressed her worth as the first woman on a Republican ticket. But the role she will play as the campaign enters its most critical phase remains uncertain. Poll numbers released in the days ahead will show how well Palin has been received by a voting public that split, largely along party lines, over the content of the message she delivered Wednesday.

Johns Hopkins neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson will speak at a prominent conservative political rally next month, alongside the likes of former Alaska Gov.

Carson "represents the optimism and hope of the future of the conservative moment," union Chairman Al Cardenas said in a statement announcing Carson's invitation. Carson will be among more than two dozen speakers at the 40th annual Conservative Political Action Conference, to be held March 14-16 at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center in Prince George's County.

The joint appearance by President Obama and Hillary Clinton on “60 Minutes” wasn't about the Democratic nomination in 2016, as some analysts have insisted this weekend. Watching the actual interview Sunday night, I am certain it was about something both much more immediate and long lasting. It was President Obama using TV - and the folks at "60 Minutes" happily allowing themselves to be used - to write the first draft of history on Clinton's performance as secretary of state.
