    David Obey (D) lashed out at a mother when pressured on whether he would vote to cut off funding

    The women has a wounded son in a VA Hospital and he was not exactly respectful toward the women. The liberal media has been ignoring this story but as a public service I am bringing this to you.

    I wonder how the liberal media would be reporting this if a Republican had done this

    The tape is a bit long but it is worth watching

    Cindy Crackpot is a joke. She has bellowed out and out lies and her husband has divorced her, and her children have left her

    These two people were respcetful and polite. Obey melted down and allowed his temper and arrogrance to take over

    I guess I didn't see much difference, especially with the guy. They both (the woman and Cindy) both seem to be using their children to advance an agenda.

    Rare is it for me to defend a democrat, but these people basically cornered him. He had every right to be frustrated with him because those two are basically the message of liberals as it pertains to the war and they have no understanding of how the political system works.

    Those two people were very polite (Cindy Crackpot screams alot) they listened and did not try to shout Obey down (Ms Crackpot does) no Republican would ever call them idiots (Ms Crackpot does) They were asking questions is a calm and rational tone (Ms Crackpot is usually nearly foaming at the mouth)

    Does the name Sen Allen mean anything to you? He made a one word joke and has savaged for nearly three months in a daily basis

    Noonan addressed the problems with the base awhile ago, regarding both parties, just the Dems have a harder time of it:

    Of course, I have to ask, how would the Dems and liberal media be actingif a Republican had done this?

    Well, here is another examples of how the liberal media favors the Dems

    Time to Play WIARHSI: Hillary Says 'I Like to See Women in Charge'
    Posted by Mark Finkelstein on March 11, 2007 - 06:38.
    Without a lot of breaking news out there this morning, why not pass some of today's 23 hours with an exhilirating session of one of our favorite games, WIARSHI, which as regular readers know stands for "What if a Republican Had Said It?"

    Check out this paragraph from a Newsday article that reports on a Hillary campaign event in Nashua, New Hampsire:

    "The former first lady, referring to New Hampshire's roster of female Democratic officials, quipped, 'I don't know about you, but I like seeing women in charge.'"
    For purposes of WIARSHI, let's imagine that a Republican had made the mirror-image comment: "I don't know about you, but I like seeing men in charge." Fair to say that the feminist howls of outrage would soon be echoing from sea to shining sea? But what are the odds that Hillary's blatant appeal to sexist solidarity will cause even the smallest ripple in the MSM?

    Note by the way how Newsday tries to do Hillary a favor, casting her comment as merely a "quip." Real side-splitter!

    An additional note: Obama is frequently compared to another young, charismatic Democrat -- JFK. At the same Nashua event where she got off her "woman in charge" line, Hillary tried to cloak herself in JFK's mantle. She told the crowd:

    "New Hampshire came together to offer their support to a presidential candidate who came from just south of here; he was smart, he was dynamic, he was inspiring, he was Catholic. A lot of people back then said, you know, America will never elect a Catholic as a president, but those who gathered here a half century ago knew better. Some people tell me . . . 'I don't think a woman can be elected president,' I say we'll never know unless we try."

    I think both parties are way out of touch. The pols are so far removed from the US middle class its not even funny. Perhaps its because both parties tend to cater to the extremes and the more moderate folks get drowned out by the shrill harpy calls of those at either end of the spectrum. The media (thriving on the continuing farce) eggs them both on and reaps the benefits.
