    Here is a story that has to make Democrats beam with pride.

    Dog Feces Left at Congresswoman's Office
    Jun 08 10:44 PM US/Eastern

    GREELEY, Colo.

    Republican U.S. Rep. Marilyn Musgrave's re-election campaign was already heated, and it just got smelly as well: Her staff accused a Democratic activist Thursday of leaving an envelope full of dog feces at Musgrave's Greeley office.

    Musgrave spokesman Shaun Kenney said someone stuffed the envelope through the mail slot in the door on May 31 and then sped away in a car. Kenney said most of the preprinted return address was blacked out, but staffers used the nine-digit ZIP code to trace it to Kathleen Ensz, a Weld County Democratic volunteer.

    Ensz told The Associated Press she left the envelope at Musgrave's office but said it "wasn't in the office doors, it was in the foyer." Asked what she meant by the act, she declined comment.

    Kenney demanded an apology from Musgrave's likely Democratic opponent, state Rep. Angela Paccione of Fort Collins.

    Paccione spokesman James Thompson denied the campaign had anything to do with it.

    "We find that kind of act to be completely deplorable," he said. "We're not in the business of dirty tricks like that. This type of thing is really out of our control, but of course we'll do anything that we can to discourage this."

    Thompson said Ensz, vice chairwoman of a state Senate district committee for the county Democratic Party, has no formal ties to the Paccione campaign.

    Kenney said police were asked to investigate. A police spokesman did not immediately return a call.

    It wasn't a prank.

    It was just another letter from a democrat, full of shit as always.

    Funny, isn't it, how stories like this never get any mainstream media attention.

    During the last election there were stories about Republicans tires being slashed, threats, vandalism to Republican campaign offices. But they never got reported on mainstream news sites. If I didn't read conservative sites like Human Events I never would have read any stories about any of that.

    But let a conservative say or do anything the least bit controversial and the whole world calls for his head.

    How about this from the party of tolerance and civility from Fox News,,,,,


    The U.S. and Iraqi governments are calling the death of Abu Musab al-Zarqawi a victory in the War on Terror, but some on the left here at home are calling it "one big scam."

    One liberal Web log reader says the news is just "another wave of propaganda from the Bush Cabal," saying, "He was likely killed years ago, or is still alive." Another calls it suspicious that Zarqawi's death comes just "as the marriage amendment failed" and "Bush's poll numbers are slipping," adding, "I don't buy it."

    Meanwhile, The Washington Times reports that California Democrat Pete Stark called the announcement a political stunt to "cover Bush's [rear] so he doesn't have to answer" for the deaths of Iraqi civilians


    or this one from the liberal media..............

    In a recent story on the alleged killing of Iraqi civilians by U.S. Marines in Haditha, The Times of London ran a brutal photograph of dead Iraqis lying in a bullet-riddled ditch, and the Chicago Sun-Times later ran a cartoon based on the photograph to attack the administration over the Haditha incident. But it turns out that the photograph actually depicts Iraqis murdered by Sunni insurgents months before the Haditha incident.

    The Times, which is owned by the parent company of this network, issued a correction, and the Sun-Times says it "deeply regrets" what it called its "egregious error," adding, "we apologize to the U.S. servicemen, especially those in the Marine Corps, and to our readers who were understandably offended."
