  •  When the press smells blood (4.00)
    they are like the sharks off the coast of Florida right now, they swarm and attack until they rip their prey to shreds.

    Rove?
    I dunno, wouldn't put it past him, but more likely it's the press just being the press, bloodsuckers they are.

    •  Breaking the illusion (4.00)
      Even if GOP insiders are spoon-feeding the simpleton corporate media the dirt on DeLay, I think it could have repercussions beyond the shortening of DeLay's career.

      Once the aura of invincibility around the GOP is burst we could see a steady stream of real reporting. Bush (Rove) has used iron control of the message to keep power. This could signal the end of having that control. Heck, in the press gaggle the other day Les Kinsolving, total softballer, was actually asking tough questions.

      •  Re: Breaking the illusion (none)
        I think they are going to attempt to back away from the religious right 'till after the 2006 elections.
        •  No way - they can't afford to (none)
          Not with a 51% - 49% mandate. Bushco will continue to play the religious wackos for the saps they are.

          The repubs have power right now because of the religious wackos. Lose them and the Dems are right back into the thick of things.

          Course the counter-argument is rather simple: Where are the religious wackos going to go??? The Dems? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!! Greens? HAHAHA! Libertarians? HAHAHAHAHA!!!!!

          Let's face it - the religious wackos have nowhere to go - they are stuck with the repubs and the repubs are stuck with the wackos. Made for each other!

      •  Man, I sure hope so (none)
        but after watching the performance of this press corps over the past 5 years I am not getting my hopes up.
    •  More like trained chihuahuas (4.00)
      attacking en masse at the command of their owners.

    •  somebody told them were to look (none)
      ....these guys aren't fat and lazy for no reason.

      moreover, they're scared to attack a gooper, unless they think their backs are covered. They don't want to be attacked day and night on cable as biased, and they don't want fabricated documents and testimonies blowin up in their faces.
