Most of us don't have time to keep up with which dem these days is calling what other dem a "racist", "loser", "sell-out", and worst of all, the "progressives" now take offense if someone refers to them as liberals (See: Clinton, Hillary). I prefer "Marxist" myself.
Our work may be done... far left blog The Daily Kos is ripping Hillary like she was Barry AuH20.
So rather than trying to comment on most of the continuing good news, I've just borrowed these links from today's Drudge:
Sen. Bob Casey to endorse Obama, join bus tour...
Dean: Bickering Dems May Hurt Party...
Angry Pelosi stands firm on superdelegates...
Leahy says Clinton should drop out of race...
POLL: Obama leads Clinton nationally by 10...
Joe Klein: Give It To Gore...
Federal prosecutors say Saddam Hussein’s intelligence agency secretly financed a trip to Iraq for three U.S. lawmakers during the run-up to the U.S.-led invasion.
Democratic Reps. "Baghdad" Jim McDermott, Washington; David Bonior, Michigan; and Mike Thompson, California, are the three democrats giving aid and comfort to the enemy
The indictment filed in Detroit targets former Saddam henchman Muthanna Al-Hanooti for arranging for the October 2002 Iraq trip for the trio of traitors at the behest of the Iraqi dictatorship; furthermore, Iraqi intelligence officials paid for the trip through an intermediary.
Naturally, the democrat trio pleads ignorance of the travel arrangements.
Remember the last five years when a single IED would lead the evening news? Remember when the agenda-driven MSM screamed "we're losing" right along with Pelosi, Reid and Murtha?
And now... have you noticed that like Pavlovs' dogs a majority of voters automatically say "health care" when asked what campaign issue is most important, and "the war" ranks down there with forgotten terms like "infrastructure, "bridges", "levees" and Sen. Larry Craig?
The truth of tail-wags-dog prevails when we examine the coverage the war has and hasn't gotten.
From the Pew Research Center:
"From January 2007 -- when Bush announced the "surge" -- through the end of May 2007, Iraq had been the dominant story, accounting for 20% of all the news coverage measured by PEJ's News Coverage Index. But from the time of that May funding vote through the war's fifth anniversary on March 19, 2008, coverage plunged by about 50%. In that period, the media paid more than twice as much attention to the presidential campaign as it did to the war."
"In the first three months of 2008, coverage of the campaign outstripped coverage of the war by a margin of more than 10-to-1 (43% of the newshole compared with 4%). In an environment in which newsroom cutbacks and decreasing resources may make it more difficult for news outlets to stay atop two ongoing mega-stories, the media, for now, have made their priorities clear."
Cutting to the chase... before the "surge", when things were tough in Iraq, war coverage was 25 percent of MSM news; but now that the surge has achieved substantial success and pacification, and some young Marines are complaining that "there's nobody to shoot."... the MSM war news dropped to three percent last February.
Public opinion doesn't drive the news coverage in this country... the news media dives public opinion.
Sheep disgust me.
