Dan Rather's Behavior explained!

I have discovered the reason that Dan Rather has continued to defend the National Guard memos, against all evidence of forgery. He is planning to leave his day job and go on the road as a straight man for Bagdhad Bob, funded by an Al-Jazeera - Michael Moore joint venture.
I know this is true because I received a fax of a copy of a fax of a memo by a man long dead that says it is.

The Imperial News Media has totally lost it

The Dan Rather - Bush memo debacle is a rather phenomenal display of how really archaic and arrogant the Imperial News Media has become. They’ve been unprecedented this time around in not even attempting to mask their bias and have clearly become the investigative arm of the Kerry campaign. No effort to investigate the claims of the SwiftVets; only efforts to discount them. But plenty of effort to smear Bush’s military history (which is hardly stellar, as Bush himself admits). The primary evidence of Dan Rather’s so-called expose was proven to be a hoax (definitely proven, thanks to bloggers such as Little Green Footballs) in a matter of hours by the blogosphere. Dan’s reaction of blaming Republican operatives (most of the bloggers involved are actually Kerry supporters, to which I tip my hat for their honesty.). What a fuddy-duddy response, as was the CBS claim that there will be no investigation. What rubbish!

Dan, it’s time for you to go. If he can’t see past your own arrogant bias and power and keep up at least a little bit with current informational trends, you need to go the way of the dinosaurs. And that goes for the upper management of CBS and any other traditional media source that feels their job is to manage the political process rather than report it. And they wonder how Fox got so popular?

To fellow bloggers, I say this: We are becoming a primary source of information for more and more people. Take that responsibility seriously; be sure of your information, keep your thoughts clear and concise, and march forward.

Whiny Politics, History and Sub-Animals

Kerry sure gave a significant contrasting image the other day immediately following the Republican Convention, though I doubt it was the contrast he wanted. He sounded whiny, desperate and rushed, whle the convention was polished, entertaining and highly focused. He certainly had none of the attributes I would want in the Oval Office on display that night. It certainly matches the image one gets of Kerry while reading "Unfit for Command".

I finally got my copy of that book; it took 19 tries at about 8 different book stores to get a copy. Of course, I could have ordered it online; but I became convinced bugging the bookstores was necessary. Considering the number of viscious Bush-bashing books prominently displayed in all of these stores, I was determined to pester them into getting this book in the stores. It was obvious I wasn't the only one; the employees started getting that 'hunted' look. Only today did any quantities of significance showed up. One this for sure; establishment types don't have to worry about burning books if they don't get in the hands of the people. It would be interesting to see the details of the book distribution from the actual publishers to the outlets.

The Russian school tragedy really drives home the point that we ARE in World War III; these animals must be hunted down, as well as their brainwashers and funders. The vast majority of Muslims who are rational must come off the fence and actively join in hunting down, ratting out, and putting an end to the terrorists, the trainers and the financiers. Some already have and are extrememly brave for doing so. Vastly more have to, if this conflict in not going to turn into a real Jihad from both sides, one the Muslim world will not win. It is all up to them.

Zell Miller, a true Marine

Brother! What a speech! There's a man I'd go over the top with in a bayonet charge! He did an equal number on Chris Matthews, whose tendency to block his guests from answering has gotten completely out of hand.

The Imperial News Media, as unashamed shills for the Democrats, will call into question Zell's motives, his past, even his sanity if needed. However, it will be very difficult to claim that this is of any personal benefit to Zell. Could it be that he actually did it for the reasons he stated? Naw, these people of whispy morality say; it can't be that. They can't understand those things that drive such men as Zell; it's not 'stylish' (to quote a sneering Dirty Harry).

Zell, You stay in the Democrat and fight the good fight there. God knows, those people need such a voice of strength (just as the Republicans need McCain to occasionally give them a kick in the pants). You have my deep gratitude and respect; keep that Marine bayonet charge advancing. Glory is already yours, you will not fail and- come the sad day when you go to meet your maker- your unwavering direction and moral fiber will be appropriately rewarded.
