Politico’s Blake Hounshell distracts after Dem senator accused of plagiarism

The New York Times has alleged that Montana Democrat Sen. John Walsh plagiarized “at least” one-quarter of a 2007 thesis he turned in to earn a master’s degree from the United States Army War College. Serious allegations, right?

For Blake Hounshell of Politico, the first order of business was to provide spin and maybe a talking point for his MSM colleagues and Walsh’s fellow Dems:

It must just be sheer instinct.

GOP power player: Ben Carson ‘EXACTLY the kind’ of Senate candidate we need

With Democratic Sen. Carl Levin set to retire at the end of his term in 2014, state GOP leader and former RNC Chair candidate Saul Anuzis sees a big opportunity for a Republican Senate seat pickup:

Levin out creates a HUGE opportunity for Michigan Republicans!A “new” potential GOP pick-up for 2014. #migop #tcot #cpac2013

— Saul Anuzis (@sanuzis) March 7, 2013

Names like Rep. Justin Amash have been bandied about as potential replacements, but today, Anuzis put forth a new one: Dr. Ben Carson. Ever since his brilliant National Prayer Breakfast speech last month, Dr. Carson’s conservative star has been on the rise. But does he have a shot at the U.S. Senate?

intriguing, right?! :) RT @mpoindc: @sanuzis is tweeting floating Ben Carson for MI-SEN in 2014: #migop #rnc #gop

He hasn’t ruled out a future presidential bid … maybe a seat in Congress would help him make up his mind.

Alec Baldwin’s wife calls for ‘peace & acceptance,’ wants ‘real apology’

Apparently Twittercide isn’t a Baldwin family affair.

Actor Alec Baldwin deleted his Twitter account (again) after a massive meltdown laced with anti-gay slurs aimed at Daily Mail writer George Stark. Baldwin’s “toxic little queen” rant was prompted by a report that his wife, Hilaria Baldwin, tweeted about Rachael Ray and anniversary gifts during James Gandolfini’s funeral.

Mrs. Baldwin took to Twitter to defend her out-of-control hubby and make a plea for “peace and acceptance.” No mention of the “acceptance” Alec showed when he told “lying little bitch” Stark, “I’m gonna f*ck…you…up.”

Hilaria maintains that she did not tweet during the funeral.

She also retweeted these tweets, which appear to substantiate her claim.

The Daily Mail published screen shots of tweets and reported that they were sent at “8.47am, 9.53am, 10.17am and 11.09am.” However, the timestamps are three hours later, indicating that the tweets may have been sent after the 10 a.m. funeral.

The Daily Mail is seeking “urgent clarification from Twitter as to when Mrs Baldwin’s tweets were posted.”

Hilaria may be owed an apology, but calling for “peace and acceptance” after Alec’s freakout is too rich. How ’bout a little “peace and acceptance” from rage-juiced Alec?!/michellemalkin/status/350443776352862209

Andrew W.K., Glenn Beck discuss ‘love and partying’ on TheBlaze TV

Rocker Andrew W.K. appeared on Glenn Beck’s TheBlaze TV Monday afternoon to discuss a column published this week in The Village Voice that’s made a splash in political circles. As Mediaite notes, the “king of partying” writes a weekly advice column for the Voice, and this week responded to a letter writer complaining about his “65-year-old super right-wing conservative [father] who has basically turned into a total asshole intent on ruining our relationship and our planet with his politics.”

W.K. wrote a lengthy and thoughtful reply which can be read in full here, but in conclusion he asked his letter writer to examine his own attitude:

Love your dad because he’s your father, because he made you, because he thinks for himself, and most of all because he is a person. Have the strength to doubt and question what you believe as easily as you’re so quick to doubt his beliefs. Live with a truly open mind — the kind of open mind that even questions the idea of an open mind. Don’t feel the need to always pick a side. And if you do pick a side, pick the side of love. It remains our only real hope for survival and has more power to save us than any other belief we could ever cling to.

W.K. took that message to TheBlaze TV.

And we passed this guy over for cultural ambassador to Bahrain?

Here’s video of Beck’s initial reaction to W.K.’s column from last week.
