How far can Geraldo sink. His spots have been hilarious as he leans over into the wind at a 45 degree angle.

There is that "Al Capone's vault" Jerry Rivers could sink back to. What's almost as entertaining are the Weather Channel info babes with their grossly-oversized rain jackets flapping around in the breeze.

The DEMS cried that a Homeland Security threat was posted on the Sunday after the DNC.., all we get after the RNC is uninterrupted FRANCES. I know it's a holiday weekend and no one in the news media wants to work, but sending the third team bench warmers 24/7 to flap in the breeze and totally ignore big news (job numbers, this capture, Bush afterglow) is a dereliction of duty.
I won't whine beyond that, less be considered a media girley-man.

I see Geraldo on the screen and I think, "rogue wave NOW!" The funniest bit I saw was Al Roker on MSNBC yesterday. Lester Holt showed a shot of Roker being lashed by the wind & said, "We'll talk to Al Roker after the break." Roker said, "Lester, take your time. I'm having fun here," in a voice dripping with sarcasm. I chortled through the commercials.

But if al-Douri is caught--and I hope this is confirmed soon--it's a GREAT catch. Oh, yeah.

"Now back to our complete coverage of reporters in Fla standing in a storm."

Please, Fox, MSNBC, anyone, we sympathize with the folks in Florida, but this is just way over the top. On the other hand, if Kerry is out there doing anything, we're not hearing about it (could cut both ways), and we have all our FReepers attending Bush rallies and checking in with pics and reports, so it's not all bad.

With all due respect to those in Florida, can just one network give FIVE FREAKIN MINUTES to break away from their soaked reporters flapping in the breeze...

As one of many Floridians who are suffering from the unrelenting blast of Hurricane Frances coverage (did you know I should be buying batteries and water?....for the 8 millionth time!) I concur.

Bump to FR getting the story 12 hours before the old media.

More from the A.P.

Sarhan said that defense officials laid a trap for al-Douri, knowing that he had been in ill health, reportedly from leukemia.

"We had received information that he was admitted to a hospital near Tikrit, or let us say a clinic to have blood transfusion," he told al-Hurra. "As soon as we received this information, the forces were able to plan a major operation to arrest him."

I switched names after 9-11

What a shame 'AmericaUnited' wasn't a portent for the future.

The RATs instead decided on a strategy of 'whatever is good for Dims is bad news for America'. Fortunately their strategy proved faulty but it has divided this nation along harder lines than I have ever seen before.

After Kerry is finished off in grand style it will be interesting to see if a ration wing of that party can develop.

Former Saddam Deputy Arrested in Iraq

BAGHDAD, Iraq - Saddam Hussein's former second-in-command, Izzat Ibrahim al-Douri, was arrested in northern Iraq, an Iraqi Defense Ministry spokesman told al-Hurra television.

Saleh Sarhan said al-Douri was captured while in a clinic where he was receiving medical treatment.

"There was a major operation around Tikrit and al-Dour and American forces supported by Iraqi civil defense corps members were able to capture Izzat al-Douri," he told the U.S. government-funded Arabic-language station in a live telephone interview. Saddam was captured at a safehouse near al-Dour in December.

The U.S. military said it had no immediate comment on the report.

Sarhan said al-Douri was now in the hands of the Americans.

Al-Douri, who had a U.S. bounty of $10 million on his head, was the highest-ranking member of Saddam's government who was still at large. Once the vice chairman of the Baath Party's Revolutionary Command Council, he was a longtime confidant of Saddam.

He is No. 6 on the U.S. military's list of 55 most wanted figures from Saddam's regime. Forty-four on the list had been captured or killed.

U.S. military officials have said they believe al-Douri is playing an organizing role in the 16-month-old insurgency against U.S. forces.

Seriously, who is the "emperor"?

I'm sure you understand that that saying speaks to "Speaking the truth, rather than just repeating what the mindless crowd is just blathering."

I think I put that on my tag line a month or two ago to remind everyone that Kerry was really naked and the truth would come out. If you remember, two months ago and before, there were many here who were getting very wobbly ("Bush is going to lose, blah, blah, blah") and I kept posting to "keep the faith", that Rove and Team were keeping the powder dry, that the heavy guns had not started firing, and when they did, the effect would be devastating.

Well, now 'everyone' sees that happened. So I guess it's time for a new tag line.

Proper interrogations of al Durri may shed some light on the Iraq-al Qaeda connection. al Durri's cousin is married to Colonel Saadan Mahmud Abdul Latif aka Abu-Wael who is the co-founder of the al Qaeda funded Ansar al Islam.

I would like to see a two minute spot for Bush, where they flash the the face of each terrorist from the deck of cards, with voice overs describing each person's fate. I think it would be stunning.

It could end with, "Despite what you hear, the War on Terrorism is working."

In all seriousness, I really do expect Bin-Laden to get popped before election day. My conspiracy goes like this, and I think it's somewhat reasonable.

I believe Musharraf and his intelligence service knows where Bin-Laden is hiding out close enough to bag him with an all-out effort. I believe Musharraf will do this in October on his own, giving a big boost to Bush, and then trying to call in this 'chip' from Bush repeatedly in the next 4 years.

I would like to see a two minute spot for Bush, where they flash the the face of each terrorist from the deck of cards, with voice overs describing each person's fate. I think it would be stunning.

That would be so cool......of course, the timing would be questioned!

/sarcasm for "great justice!"

Rove's wife will be glad that he's not living in their basement anymore... Now she's just waiting for Bin-Laden to get out of the house. Must wait till October...

LOL; good one!

Still 71 million in unclaimed bounties out there! Funny how dictators like to be called 'president' because democracies have presidents and democracy is a very powerful idea in the world.

What I find incredible is that all these leaders are pussies. If I were them, I would never be taken alive. They want everyone else to die for the cause, but they are not willing to walk the walk.

Any timing is good.

Agreed. Forgot to put /sarcasm after my post.

He was in a clinic getting treatment..still in the process of confirming identify.....No official confirmation... ""

I can understand wanting to be 1000% sure of who he is, BUT how many redheads were serving in Saddam's Army of thugs.? What nationality is he, anyway? Most of the Iraqi pics we have seen show a very definate black haired populace.

Man. That is a new kind of UGLY.

Kind of resembles G. Gordon Liddy, doesn't he?

Do you think that band-aid on his thumb has a purple heart on it?

I would love to see Bin-Laden in captivity, held by Iraqi Army, with support of coalition troops. When the Old Media asks, "who captured him," each coalition spokesman could say...a la "Spartacus"...something like "we, the coalition, at the behest of the Iraqi nation."

And the WMD...

Can't say any more than that. But watch for it.

I don't think there's election timing ivolved so much as other factors.

No kidding...he kinda' stands out in the crowd. Al-Douri could totally change his appearance but he is so radically arrogant, even if he was wearing a Spiderman costume, one could never mistake him once he opened his mouth.

Last night, Geraldo looked like he was doing the St. Vitas dance, bouncing around in the wind gusts. Fox News on the weekends is almost unwatchable with their pathetic Fox and Friends crew.
