Every Death A Tragedy Political Opportunity

Rekha's compassion is boundless.

Update: Rekha should read this Christopher Hitchens Column.
Are You Listening Register..?

The Pew Research Center for People and the Press has some surprising (...I'm sure to them anyway) information on the way Americans perceive MSM coverage of the military.

Best news I've seen in the last couple of months. American common sense may not be dead after all.

Cultural Stockholm Syndrome

How else can you explain them making common cause with these animals. Check this out.
"I was, I have to say, shocked by Douglas Wood's use of the a---hole word, if I can put it like that, which I just thought was coarse and very ill-thought through and I think demeans the man and is one of the reasons why people are slightly sceptical of his motives and everything else.

"The issue really is largely, speaking as I understand it, he was treated well there. He says he was fed every day, and as such to turn around and use that kind of language I think is just insensitive."
So... an Australian civilian reconstruction worker is kidnapped. He witnesses two of his fellow workers murdered. Chances are that, had he not been rescued, he would have been shot in the back of the head (if lucky) or had his living head severed with a butcher knife.

Wood had the unmitigated temerity to call the terrorist scum that kidnapped him "assholes". That uncouth, ungrateful, American-imperialist-lackey barbarian.

The quote above is attributed to the Editor in Chief of one of Australia's major newspapers. What in the name of God is the matter with these people?

Making Political Hay out of 9/11

A Republican recently used 9/11 in a political gambit that makes my stomach churn and my skin crawl.

That mastermind of evil, Karl Rove...?

Not by half. It's this bonehead.
''Ask the men and women who stood on top of the Trade Center. Ask them and they will tell you: Pass this amendment."
I may be ill.

Now, why isn't the MSM all over this?

Okay - you knew I'd venture a guess. Because their precious 1st Amendment is negotiable when there's political points to be scored and/or damage control to be done for the Democrats. And - thanks to the Constitution - this steaming pile of Flag Burning Amendment had to pass the House by a 2/3's majority. Which means that many, many Democrats participated in this facile political showboating. Friggin cretins.

And the MSM response...Crickets chirping.

So... let's just sit this one out, okay. Sure, it stinks?... but we can ignore it. It's all for a greater cause after all... World Brotherhood & Peace... and shafting the Republicans at every - no matter how inconsistent or hypocritical - opportunity.

Rove's comments...? Oh, come on now. Prominent Democrats have weekly said more offensive - and much worse, way more hyperbolic and ... how shall I say this... mendacious - things about the Bush Administration and the War Terror.

Sure, Rove was painting liberals with a very broad brush. Let's grow up now shall we...

That's. His. Job.

He's the political Machiavelli/Svengali behind the stolen elections of 2000 and 2004 after all.

Hey Democrats and MSM (is there a difference, after all): Sell your silly feigned indignation somewhere else - I ain't buyin' it.
