    (and they really are; some of our prog talkers like Thom Hartmann and Randi Rhodes get daily copies and occasionally work the progressive side of the day's official conservative outrage) go back much earlier than Bush I'm pretty sure. They may have begun under Reagan due to the constant requirement of having numerous conservative voices along with the Press Secretary insisting that Reagan had said things other than what everyone saw and heard him say. I'd bet serious money I was hearing coordinated talking points by the time Clinton was in office.

    (Reminds me I need to get a Mega ticket if I ever want to have serious money to bet.)

      (g)organized than we.  I believe Pogo was talking directly to Democrats when he was describing the enemy.

      Now, there have been some very good conservative ideas. Give me a week, and I can list one or two. Liberals, unfortunately, have a a great initial idea, alter into something barely decent, change to not too bad, because of GOP pressure, then pass it, and RUN AWAY!

      What we call god is merely a living creature with superior technology & understanding. If their fragile egos demand prayer, they lose that superiority.
