      with their "political insider," some guy who I took to be speaking from FOXNews studios in NYC.

      Mallet kicked to the segment with something like, "President Bush will give his first SOTU address to a completely Democratic-controlled Congress."

      Then this "insider" jumped in and said semi-emphatically, "It's only a Democratic-controlled Congress by one."  Then this dude gave a little preview of the SOTU.

      When he finished, he tossed it back to the Philly studio with, "Now back to George Mallet, our own George Will."

      At that point, Mallet said, "That would imply that I'm conservative."  And that's when he dropped the line I highlighted above.

      One final note:  The immediate response from the other co-anchor was "I believe it."
