Return of the Pajamahadeen: D.C. Chapter Freeps CBS News' Face the Nation 9/26/04
D.C. Chapter ^ | Sunday, September 26, 2004 | Kristinn

Posted on 09/26/2004 9:09:10 PM PDT by kristinn

Honor Roll for today: Trueblackman, Doctor Raoul, tgslTakoma, BillF, BufordP and kristinn.

The Pajamahadeen of the D.C. Chapter of Free Republic held a RatherGate freep of CBS News today outside their D.C. bureau where Face the Nation is broadcast from.

BufordP, BillF, tgslTakoma and I were first on the scene, arriving around 9:15 a.m. There were a couple guys out front setting up the mic stand for the customary press availability after the show.

Dressed in pajamas and bathrobes (except BillF,) we set up our signs and waited for Doctor Raoul and Trueblackman to join us. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) arrived about quarter-of as I was walking back from McDonald's. We crossed paths at the entrance to CBS. He said hello to the pajama-clad man on the sidewalk wearing a Rather Biased t-shirt.

Trueblackman arrived awhile later, dressed in pajamas and carrying a CBS Special laptop with Office '73 so he could create Bush guard documents for CBS on the spot.

Foot traffic was pretty light, but we did get into a few discussions with folks. One man started out by saying the Bush bumperstickers on one of our cars hurt our credibility criticizing CBS. He then asked who sent us out here to protest. The conversation never really got much better, but it went on for a long time.

A man who agreed with us about CBS stopped and talked with us after the other guy left.

When Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-Mass.) arrived to do the show, tgslTakoma asked him if his recent campaign appearance for John Kerry in Nanticoke, Pa. was cancelled because it was near the hometown of Mary Jo Kopechne. Kennedy ignored the question and went in the building.

While we were setting up for a group photo one of the cameramen told us we were doing it wrong--we should be standing in front of the CBS building. We thanked him for his professional suggestion and brought our signs over to the other side of the sidewalk. He said he'd be fired if he took a photo for us, but we had a good laugh.

Doctor Raoul finally arrived and donned his Richard Nixon mask. He held Watergate themed signs to go along with the mask.

Sen. Kennedy came out from the building around 10:45 and went right to the mic stand. He took a few questions from the press. All I could make out from where I stood was "quagmire."

We didn't interrupt him except for BufordP who blurted out "Democrats" when a point was raised about who's harming national security.

When Kennedy was done tgslTakoma asked her question about the cancelled campaign stop again. Again, he didn't answer.

I asked Kennedy a question as he walked toward his chauffer-driven courtesy car from CBS, "Senator, being that the rhetoric about the Iraq war by you, John Kerry and the DNC is virtually indistinguishable from Zarqawi and Moqtada al-Sadr, is it reasoanble for the American people to question whose side of the war you're on?"

He didn't answer that question either. The news cameras followed him as we asked our questions and then swung over to us after he got in his car. The AP photographer took some pictures of us for her scrapbook.

Sen. Graham came out next and also stood at the mic stand to talk to the press. He was also hard to hear. When he was done we started to ask him a question but he told us he needed to go back inside.

The news crews were breaking down their equipment when Karen Tumulty from Time magazine came out and walked by us, checking out our signs. She smiled when I told her to be grateful it wasn't Time that had done the forged document story or we'd be at Time's door instead.

Sen. Graham came out with Face the Nation host Bob Schieffer. They split up--Graham went to his chauffer-driven CBS courtesy car and Schieffer walked by us. He smiled as he looked at our signs. I asked him if thought anybody watched the show this morning. He said something but I couldn't make it out clearly. It was a good natured response, though.

Bill from INDCJournal.com who was talking with us broke off to seek an interview with Schieffer. Schieffer graciously spoke with him for a few minutes. The exclusive interview can be found at the aforementioned link. Afterward, Bill returned to finish his interviews with us. When he was done, we packed it in and headed off to Luigi's.

I should mention that a CBS employee stood inside their door and took pictures of us. We saw him at Tuesday's freep also.

Our pictures to follow soon.

BillF, Trueblackman, BufordP and Kristinn took the professional advice from a network cameraman, and posed in front of the CBS logo at the entrance to the DC studio.

Doctor Raoul resurrected Richard Nixon to offer advice to Dan Rather in how to deal with his own scandal/coverup.

Trueblackman takes time away from his document-forging work for CBS, to listen to Sen. Graham talk about the DemocRATS' trying to undermine our troops efforts in Iraq.

Just love the way you and tgslTakoma did the "Senator sandwich" with Kennedy. He can't be reminded too often that he's the killer of that young girl and a traitor to his country.

All of us had a lot of fun today, poking a stick in the eye of the biased media; and the guys in PJs (Trueblackman, BufordP and Kristinn) enjoyed the double-takes that their garb elicited from passers-by.

But now that I have posted their photos, they may be plotting revenge.
