    I get a sense, not only of Bush hostility, which doesnt belong in the press, but of an ego war, who can come up with the "catchiest" most profound statements. LOOK AT ME!, reporting is no longer about reporting, but about the reporter.

    Its disgusting. Its OUR PRESS. ITS OUR AIRWAVES. THE PUBLIC. It belongs to us, we are letting them use it to INFORM US, not make themselves bigger than life ego driven characters.

    Brian Williams: "You just told me the story about one photograph from the war that always kind of catches you, the Japanese soldier returning to his city that’s been destroyed. Do you have remorse for what happened? How do you deal with that in your mind?"
    Enola Gay navigator "Dutch" Van Kirk: "No, I do not have remorse! I pity the people who were there. I always think of it, Brian, as being, the dropping of the atom bomb was an act of war to end a war."— Exchange as the two stood next to the plane at the Smithsonian’s new National Air and Space annex near Dulles airport, in a segment on the 60th anniversary of the dropping of the first atomic bomb on Hiroshima, Japan, NBC Nightly News, August 5.

    Gotta love it. ;)

    I loved that one too. It's so refreshing to hear a realist put down a "feely-touchy" lib in such a forthright manner. Exposed Williams for what he is: a person who goes through life with blinders on.

    Now, let's not forget that are some quotes from the Hollywood Hitler Youth that are just GEMS!!!!!

    Frankly, if I made remarks like these in public... I'd leave the country or go home and shoot myself!!!! (To borrow a couple of lines from Streisand et al!)

    My son calls her 'Rosie O'Dumbo' and for good reason!!!! - Karl


    Probably because all those cigars took up too much room - Karl

    My god, its incredible how they all spew the same line. I mean, talk about talking head DNC points


    Is there no dissent (other than Lieberman, whom they ostrecized) allowed in the party that claiims dissent is so American???

    I got into the second line, then told my son, take a look at this, I havent read it yet, now I will tell you what it says, let me know if Im right. He said, OK.

    I went through the usual liberal lying diatribes on PRESIDENT Bush.

    WHen I was done, he said, DAD, you already read it. I couldnt convince hiim I hadnt.
