Television interviewers everywhere scrambled to land these guests--a far cry from the time, last June, when group leader Kristin Breitweiser spoke of her disappointment in the press, complaining to one journalist, "I've been scheduled to go on 'Meet the Press' and 'Hardball' so many times, and I'm always canceled."

I'm finding it harder and harder to feel much sympathy for this group of families.

I thought Breitwister was appointed to some position by McGreevey in NJ government, anyone know?

Chris Matthews has had them on so many times this very week that he just refers to them as "The Wives."

Quick post, Chick! I was coming here to do the same and ping it to Rep. we were just discussing these gals earlier.

Rabinowitz doesn't talk about any "peaceful tomorrows" angles here, maybe it doesn't apply to these folks in particular. And she may be a tad optimistic about the public losing interest.

I'm very sorry, a group of unelected housewives should really not be given veto power over national security.

They've probably been in the DNC Rolodex for years as donors. Even before the first Bush ad showed up on TV, "The Wives" come trotting out.

Thanks for the ping. These women are truly vile creatures, aren't they? God help their children!

"I'm finding it harder and harder to feel much sympathy for this group of families."

I started to lose sympathy for them when they became instant millionaires because of the money they received in "settlements" (a gift to which they should not have been entitled, unless it came from the perpetrators of the attack, who were the truly responsible party), and then they complained that the money was not enough. Were the families of the OKC bombing made instant millionaires? Why not? What makes these "Jersey Girls" and their ilk so special? But what erased any sympathy I had left for these women, and these families, was when they allowed themselves to be used as political shills and attacked a decent man (George Bush) who surely would have moved heaven and earth to stop the attack if he had had good, solid evidence that it was about to go down.

I don't have any sympathy for this group of families that are exploiting that horrific event for the benefits of the Rat partys political gain. They have no credibility what so ever due to who is backing them.

I agree completely.

It is obvious to me that they are 1)Doing anything in their power to demean President Bush, and 2)Relishing their ability to pander to a partisan media that is more than willing to expand their "15 minutes of fame" for political reasons.

"'''The venerable status accorded this group of widows comes as no surprise given our times, an age quick to confer both celebrity and authority on those who have suffered."''''

And there it is in a nutshell. I've been concious of this trend for years now. It's the "Shutup! You don't know the trouble I've seen so YOU can't tell me anything!" line of thinking. It's 180 deegrees off of the way of thinking that predominated in America since the beginning.

"'''I'm finding it harder and harder to feel much sympathy for this group of families."'''

I don't feel any sympathy for them anymore beyond the most fundamental Human pity. Ideas are science not emotion. Change that and a society can no longer guide itself.

These Jersey jackasses are wilfully corrupt.
