Dennis Miller: Give Me a Break With Sandra Fluke. She's "Moan of Arc."

Dennis Miller isn't having Jay Leno's "war on women."

Over at Newsbusters, Norah O'Donnell reveals herself as a hack, or as dumb, and likely both.

Romney has said six thousand times he intends to reduce rates while keeping effective rates the same for upper-income earners. He will do so, he says, by eliminating loopholes, shelters, and reductions. He has said, until he's blue in the face, that he intends this to be revenue-neutral, at least as far as top earners.

Norah O'Donnell was absent during the past year.

NORAH O'DONNELL: Can I ask you about Mitt Romney and his record and specifics? He says he's going to cut everybody's tax rates by 20%, he's going to increase defense spending, he's going to restore the Medicare cuts and he's going to balance the budget in eight years. How's he going to do that? Even Paul Ryan says it would take 'til 2040.

CHRISTIE: Well, I don't think he has said he's going to cut everybody's taxes.

O'DONNELL: Yes, he said he will cut everybody's taxes by 20%.

CHRISTIE: Except, Norah, I think what he said is the effective rate for folks at the highest levels will not change, so in terms of what you're paying because of the elimination of many deductions and other loopholes, that once the folks over --

O'DONNELL: So, he will cut the wealthiest Americans' taxes?

CHRISTIE: Well, that's not the way I read it. The way I read it is he says he'll lower rates, but that with the elimination of deductions, that those who are making more than $250,000 a year will essentially pay the same amount of money under Mitt Romney that they're paying right now under Barack Obama, but that others will pay less.

It was cute when you were cute, Norah.

Christie also shot down Charlie Rose:

CHARLIE ROSE: You are going to have an opportunity to talk about the Republican brand. Many people are saying that this party has to reach out to minorities more than it is. Many people are looking at the party and saying that the Republican brand is damaged.

CHRIS CHRISTIE: No, I don't think so, but I think -- you see, I think there's a fallacy, Charlie, about having to cater to a particular sector of the electorate.

ROSE: It's not cater. It's reaching out saying 'You have a home in this party.'

CHRISTIE: But the way you do that is through the message that you put out there. And, for instance, I hear people talking all the time about the female voters. They say, well, 'What are we going to do specifically to reach out to female voters?' Well, the same thing we're going to do to reach out to male voters. I think it's condescending to women to say that we have to have a different message for women than we have for men. This is the message of our party. I'm going to lay out a message for our party tonight that I think will resonate just as much with women voters as it will with men voters.

George Stephanolpolous also tries some Democratic talking points on Christie.

STEPHANOPOULOS: You know, the Democrats are already ready for you to talk about the New Jersey experience. They're pointing out, ahead of your speech, that New Jersey is near the bottom of states in unemployment. 48th in unemployment. 47th in economic growth.

CHRISTIE: Yeah. Except that in the last 12 months, George, we're ranked fourth in the country in terms of the number of private sector jobs that have been created, according to CNBC. That we've had 90,000 new private sector jobs created since I've been governor. And this is from a state where we've raised taxes and fees 115 times in eight years and had just stifled our economy. So, we're not going to turn that around overnight. But like I've said before, the New Jersey comeback has begun.

Another thing the media is trying to sell is that the Republicans had better be nice to Obama because, you know, Isaac.

If the Republicans aren't nice to Obama and the Democrats, then it's like Hurricane Katrina all over again.
