    It will make good video showing what a two faced jerkwad the guy is.  Just like about a hundred other instances where he completely contradicts himself.  But they can't report accurately on what a complete two faced jackass the guy is because that wouldn't be Fair.  This practice goes to the point of burying stories that don't fit in with Balance.  

    This seems a strange conversation to me, really.  The whole reason we're here it seems to me is to counter, in some small way, this horrendous situation in our 'mainstream' media conversation.  It just seems obtuse to celebrate ahead of time because this is surely to be a Big Deal tomorrow in the national conversation.  Bush invaded Iraq to get those weapons of mass destruction and it's still not a Big Deal to the mainstream.  "Who's to say who was right or wrong about Iraq?"  

    I just think we're more effective when we recognize the landscape we're dealing with.  Believing this is going to get the attention it deserves to counter the stupid narrative they created last week just seems overly hopeful to me.  

    When the truth is only a matter of opinion, advantage goes to the liars.

      It is through their own viewing and hearing these sorts of comments.

      I read page after page of comments on Ann Romney this morning from Twitter, and they all...every single one....made fun of the fact that she of course could CHOOSE to stay home, with her maids and nannies. A choice that practically noone else has.

      I think we sometimes worry that we have to have the pundits to tell everyone what these comments really mean, when actually the meaning of comments this stupid are pretty much obvious to everyone.
