    This isn't about Elizabeth Edwards as so much this is about the AP being called out as McCain surrogates (i.e. Ron Founier).

    In God we trust. All others must pay cash.

    •  I gather as much.... (0+ / 0-)

      Except that this is a trap.  Of course the AP is pimping for McCain.  And of course this story provides a chance for the mainstream media to put a stick in the eye of DailyKos and bloggers in general.  

      AP Headline: Leading liberal blog advocates shooting bambi; announces that they hate mom, apple pie and America.

      So what?  We need to get over it and move on.  

      My point is that putting two stories on the rec list on tonight of all nights - when we are on the verge of bringing the party together and setting ourselves to kick ass in Nov - is completely uncalled for.  

      People here need to learn how to 'take a punch' from the regular media establishment, and move on without getting drawn into this kind of 'off message' drama.

      •  I think this is one fight we need to fight (0+ / 0-)

        For example, when McCain put out that Ayers ad trying to create the impression that Obama is a terrorist, Obama responded forcefully, even with an ad making McCain look stupid because Obama was only 8 years old at the time.

        When the AP is shilling for the war mongers, they need to be exposed.

        And if they're attacking us, they're worried. Their propaganda is what's poisoning this nation. Fights on fuckers.

        •  Granted, yes we need to fight this... (0+ / 0-)

          but not tonight.  Anything that keeps the Edwards story alive right now is bad. That is last week's story. In fact, anything that distracts from party unity right now is bad.  

          And if there are constructive ways to fight back against the AP on this, then I am all for this.

          But if this ends up being the AP simply taking a hard, tough swipe at bloggers and KOS, then we need to suck it up.  As the old saying goes "It Ain't Beanbag".
