Democrats, far-left praise Marco Rubio's immigration moves (NCLR; Sharry; IPC; Obama and Gutierrez spox) - 01/20/13

... in Mother Jones is authored by Adam Serwer (see his name's link) and has another Sharry quote ( peekURL.com/zBnvbRk ): Rubio's immigration principles "are in line with [Democratic] principles," says Frank Sharry, director of the pro-immigration reform group America's Voice. "It's huge…We need conservatives to buy into the framework of a broad bill that simultaneously puts undocumented immigrants...

GOP debate January 23, 2012 ("self-deport", Florida, NBC, Romney, Gingrich, Santorum, Ron Paul) - 01/23/12

... it's due: even as much a hack as Adam Serwer explained to his readers what the phrase meant. Yes, he misled them about the Arizona immigration law (see my comments) but at least he wasn't as bad as the others: motherjones.com/mojo/2012/01/ romneys-self-deportation-just-another-term-alabama-style-immigration-enforcement

AttackWatch misleads about Obama's immigration amnesty (Adam Serwer, Politifact) - 09/14/11

... as discussed in the post about Adam Serwer spinning immigration for Obama. On their page, Attack Watch uses two not-fully-administration sources to buttress their claims: Serwer and Robert Farley of Politifact. While Robert Farley of Politifact has misled before, he doesn't appear to have done so in this case. Their use of Serwer is in the following: In the Washington Post, the American Prospect...

Disingenuous Adam Serwer spins Obama's mini-amnesty (immigration, DREAM Act) - 09/14/11

Last month, Adam Serwer (now of Mother Jones) mightily spun Obama's mini-amnesty for up to 300,000 illegal aliens in a guest post on Greg Sargent's blog in the Washington Post ("Obama deserves enormous credit for immigration move", link, [1]). Let's take a look at his spinning. He writes: Since taking office, the Obama administration has implemented a far more aggressive immigration enforcement...

Sonia Sotomayor: affirmative action nominee for Supreme Court? Close to far-left Puerto Rico extremists? - 05/26/09

[SEE THE UPDATES] Judge Sonia Sotomayor is Barack Obama's choice to replace David Souter on the US Supreme Court. Weak GOP talking points are here; Peter Baker and Jeff Zeleny (remember him?) have the New York Times' take here. Was she selected only because of her outstanding grasp of legal issues? Or, was at least part of the selection due to the fact that she's a woman and a Hispanic? Were...

ACORN denies knowledge of "tea parties". Ergo, they must be planning to sabotage them - 04/08/09

... unsubstantiated claim. Over to Adam Serwer at TAPPED (link): I called up ACORN Executive Director Steve Kest and asked him about it. "I saw some mention of this on a blog, I have no idea even what the tea parties are," Kest said. He then asked me to explain to him what the tea parties were having only just heard about them yesterday. When I laughed, Kest said, "Seriously, do you know more about...

"Liberals" support quotas, just not for white men, southerners (Obama cabinet) - 12/22/08

Many "liberals" believe in quotas in everything, whether they admit it or not. However, there are limits to liberalism. Namely, when the quota involves white men, especially white men from the South. Following are four recent examples involving the selections Barack Obama has made for his cabinet and top administration positions. These are reactions to the article "Southerners are the missing...

Barack Obama lies about Rush Limbaugh in Spanish-language ads - 09/17/08

... his previous "thinking". * Adam Serwer first admits that the quotes were taken out of context and that' was "stupid". Then, he launches into the "shovelhood" technique (link). UPDATE 8: Joe Klein offers "Take It Down, Barack" (link). Klein is such an obsequious hack that even Jake Tapper calling BHO out wasn't enough. It took a far greater authority to spur him to action: "The New York...
