  •  But didn't Cheney drag his daughter into the mix (4.00)
    back in August on his own?

    Why does everybody forget that.

    •  Exactly (4.00)
      All of this analysis about Kerry mentioning Mary Cheney, and not one ounce of discussion about the fact that Dick brought her into the campaign whenever he felt it was politically expedient for him to do so.  Its not as if Mary wasn't already a part of the BC campaign - she had been actively working for their reelection, and working hard for the gay vote.

      Sure, Kerry seemed awkward when he brought MC into the debate - and it probably wasn't a great idea to do so.  But I just don't get the outrage over that one comment, with nary a mention of the many outrageous statements that came out the mouths of George and Dick during the debates.

      The GOP always gets a pass, and we're left to condemn our own whenever they feel like we've stepped over the line.

      Whatever.

      •  Because they own the media!!!!! (none)
        The reason we get skewered and the right doesn't is that, for all the talk about a liberal media, the upper echelons of the media conglomerates are owned by Republicans!  Rupert Murdoch, Sunmner Redstone? Richard Parsons?

        I'm beginning to think that the media is far more controlled than I ever believed before this election.

        Where in hell were the real pictures of the war in Iraq?  The ones you can see on Canadian and European Television (never mind Al -Jazeera!)  Who makes the decision to "shield" us from those images? Who benefits from that decision?
