Supporting the Troops, Liberal (and Libertarian) Style, and More.
Between the lunatics, the Ron Paul supporters, conspiracy theorists, and the communists, I didn't see any photos of the sort of person that allegedly makes up the mass of the anti-war movement. This mythical beast "supports the troops" (in some vague ill-defined way) and loves our country and doesn't support al-Qaeda (or Hamas) and dislikes Bush but doesn't have the temerity to compare him to Hitler. Yeah, whatever. I guess all those folks have jobs and don't have time to go to demonstrations.
My vote for Most Unclear on the Concept goes to the "Queers for Palestine". Nothing says 'clueless' like a bunch of gays agitating in support of folks who think queers should be stoned to death and otherwise persecuted. How about we cut out the middleman and just stone them to death in San Francisco? That would be terribly progressive.
Meanwhile in Real News, Karbala Province was transferred to Iraqi control. Bet you didn't know that? The only network that mentioned it at all was Fox News. Good think I get my news from bloggers who get it from the real source. For those keeping score at home, that's 8 out of 18. Not quite halfway there.
Tony Snow addressed the issues with the media and what it chooses to cover and how it is covered during an acceptance speech for an award. How much coverage did his speech get in the MSM, I wonder?
Well, granted, they had the junior Senator from New York to cover (and her mocking by Guiliani), and to their credit her utter inability to answer a question with a 'yes' or a 'no' was featured at least in some venues. I'd like to see some real questions lobbed at her soon, and I hope it will happen before she gets her party's nomination. Yanno, if this is the best the Democrats can do, and this country is stupid enough to elect her, I'm buying the reloading equipment and a huge stack of 5.56mm brass and primers.
Especially if Guiliani is her opponent.
