We know that. I stated it in one sentence and you can't. Maybe that's because you've got your own Republican-controlled network, reaching the entire country, and it's, um, unique form of partisan "journalism" so far hasn't infected the entire industry.

But you can't complain: you've got your wingnut propaganda available 24/7.
I guess conservative is a bad word to you. :(

I agree with FDR, who said, "A conservative is a man with two perfectly good legs who, however, has never learned to walk forward."

Until he figured out that the way FDR had us walking was straight into the arms of statism and unending dependency on ever expanding social programs.

The great failure of FDR and the New Deal was that it wasn't made and kept temporary. What was perhaps a good sentiment and appropriate a stop gap measure has instead become an institution from which we can't extricate ourselves and which, year after year, brings us closer to the edge of a very steep cliff. If we don't find a couple of smooth pathways down the entitlement mountain we will be forced to push a lot of people off the edge.

Hilarious! Nearly blurted out the slip which negated his entire rant about how "tolerant" our society is about race. :rofl:

Dobbs is the biggest self-aggrandizing windbag not employed by Fox!

Olberman just about takes the cake among the self-aggrandizing windbags. Besides myself, of course. :D

Methinks Dobbs put that in on purpose and made a wonderful point in doing so.

Believe it or not, I don't disagree that Olbermann is insufferable. Should be a writer.

But Dobbs is in the dictionary under "buffoon." I'm waiting for his teeth to come flying out someday, Warner Wolf-style.

A biker is riding by the zoo, when he sees a little girl leaning into the lion's cage. Suddenly, the lion grabs her by the cuff of her jacket and tries to pull her inside to slaughter her, under the eyes of her screaming parents. The biker jumps off his bike, runs to the cage and hits the lion square on the nose with a powerful punch.
Whimpering from the pain the lion jumps back letting go of the girl and the biker brings her to her terrified parents, who thank him endlessly.
A NYT reporter has seen the whole scene and addressing the biker, says, 'Sir, this was the most gallant and brave thing I have ever seen a man do in my whole life.'

'Why, it was nothing, really, the lion was behind bars. I just saw this little kid in danger and acted as I felt appropriate.'

'Well, I'll make sure this won't go unnoticed. I'm a journalist from the New York Times, you know, and tomorrow's paper will have this on the front page. What motorcycle do you ride and what political affiliation do you have?'

'A Harley Davidson and I'm a Republican.'

The journalist leaves.

The following morning the biker buys the New York Times to see if it indeed brings news of his actions and reads on the front page: BIKER GANG MEMBER ASSAULTS AFRICAN IMMIGRANT AND STEALS HIS LUNCH.

I forgot about this one:
"NYT Reveals Secret Banking Anti-Terrorist Program"
"The New York Times Eric Lichtblau and James Risen have exposed yet another clandestine method used by American intelligence to track terrorists at home and abroad. The system, called Swift, has resulted in at least one capture of a high-value target, al-Qaeda's leader in Southeast Asia"
"The White House sent a bipartisan team of officials to ask the Times not to print the story".
"The New York Times apparently wants to stage itself as a publication written by traitors for an audience of idiots."
Talk about knee capping the administration, thank you Bill Keller.

Simple differnce here Greg:
What Clinton did is SOP for a new President changing all hands. (kinda like changing the old Cabinet of the former president)
What GW Bush did was a criminal violation of federal law, (Obstruction Of Justice), & one that so demoralized the Justice Dept that most higher ups quit. (Just ask John Ashcroft how he felt about Bush's attack dogs "Twisting his arm" when he was very sick in the hospital)
Or even ask Senate Republican Judiciary members Graham, Brownback, Sessions or Arlen Specter if they feel it was the same as what B. Clinton did.....They don't.

BTW, Sen Specter has suffered a recurrence of his cancer. :(
