Nope, I hate the DUmmies as much as you do.

But hey, if someone sounds like a hater, I might just call them on it. It's still a usable word, even if the Rats do have a special taste for it.

"Your post won't be the only place that theory gets floated, I think."

It simply amazes me to see that DU would adopt that conspiracy theory... it's insane how desperate some people are for complex explanations to simple events.

Mora is hoping that much of the public does not watch the WH press briefings. Stupid Mora doesn't understand talk radio. It's repeated, and repeated and repeated, in national and also local talk radio.

In this day and age of the new media, there's no excuse for being ill-informed, be it from talk radio, and the internet.

"Your bullet points, which you probably wish were real bullets but aren't,"

Some marginal paranoia. Another classic DUmmie trait.

"While some of the points do indeed reflect well on the Republican effort, they merely help to explain why Bush managed to eke out a victory."

That is a mutually exclusive statement, unless you think there really is a President Kerry. It was a historic win, by any measure.

Additionally, Rasmussen has had Bush on either side of 50% since forever. But you go right on sucking up the pap the MSM is feeding you, little boo-birdie.

"In other words, that the election was uncomfortably close, especially for an incumbent with a decent economy.

Talking about Gore in 2000 doesn't help your your paralogism.

Again, whatever I can do to help you with your Self-Zot pogrom, just let me know.

True dat. As I was out on my errands today, this Dr. London incident on Fox News reminded me of the "Lincoln" special that aired on the History channel in January.

In that abomination, they used Gore Vidal as a history expert! A man who writes historical fiction, and tries to pass it off as genuine.

You're right though. It's the shrill ones that deserve the mute. I actually don't mind hearing what the left has to say, even if it comes from Mara or Ceci. Mara is slightly more dense than Ceci is.

It's been obvious since yesterday morning that the press WANTS Mr. Whittington to die from complications of the hunting accident. The damned ghouls are just DROOLING for him to die so they can blame it on Cheney - AND fit the accident into the lefty Conspiracy theory du jour. Utterly nauseating.

IF he took a "turn for the worse," it likely has more to do with his being 78 years old than having been peppered with bird shot (based upon the doctor's report).

That turns out not to be the case. One or more pellets migrated into a blood vessel and then quickly into the heart. This caused a very minor heart attack. But if you're 78, no heart attack is truly minor.

To be put in ICU in the first place indicates that the wounds were somewhat more serious than being peppered.

Not really, depending on the meaning of "peppered" The shot did penetrate the skin, just didn't hit anything important, at least not right away. The guy is 78 years old after all.

YES, that was one of his snarky comments. Wasn;t there another in which he named PresidentBush?

Bird shot is NOT in heart chamber.

Might be better if it where. Not much to hurt in there. If it's stuck in a vessel supplying the heart muscle itself, that would not be so good, and it would cause a classic "heart attack", although in the classic case it's a blood clot or piece of arterial plaque that blocks the vessel, not a #8 lead shot.

RATS don't want Cheney to resign. Suppose Bush were to appoint Rice as the new VP? She'd be a shoo-in for 2008.

Dare I say it, but if Cheney does resign, that would mean another Senate confirmation hearing. Can you imagine that circus?

What committee hears it? It wouldn't be Judiciary since it's not about a judge. What happened when Agnew resigned and when Rockefeller died?

And what would be the chances of the Democrats stonewalling and playing hardball about "mainstream" because they're afraid of Bush's VP nomination's chances in 2008? Would they game the system and deny Bush his VP choice because they're afraid of its impact on 2008?

So is questioning a person's loyalties in the absense of any evidence.

I can sympathize with that sentiment! LOL

Shortly after the news was announced that Mr. Whittington was going to return to ICU, Huddy and Mikey had on a doctor by telephone, who used extremely inflammatory language. "A piece of his heart has died" and (I kid you not) "HELLO, this is not ROCKET SCIENCE"

She turns out to be Catherine London, a General practioner from Boston, in among other things, holistic healing, and a documented DNC supporter.

To add insult to injury, that blonde anchor who is on Fox later in the afternoon, interviewed her AGAIN!

as I heard how old this guy was, I knew something else bad would happen. 78 year olds who aren't professional hunters shouldn't be doing this stuff.

78 y/os should be doing whatever they want as long as they are capable. You think a young person has never had a hunting accident?

The guy is 78 years old after all.

Right. He's outlived the median lifespan for males. With no years of earning left, does that mean a jury in a successful Whittington v. Cheney wrongful death suit would have to find Cheney owed nothing?

I have never gone hunting with ultra-rich Republicans on a Saturday afternoon, but I have seen them tailgating at Ivy League football games, so it's hard for me to believe that any of their Saturday lunches are alcohol free.

Unreal!

As I said before, it's hard to believe that Cheney was drinking anything because of his heart medication.

Plus ........ ex-Senator Alan Simpson was on with Pieface Spitball Matthews the other night and was very concise and direct about what a great shot and hunter Dick Cheney is. I'm sure he's never wasted when he's hunting. It's just not the good man's style.

****

These Democrats and reporters need a whipping.

Agreed. Best wished to Mr. Whittington. Once he recovers, I'm sure that the press will be hounding him in hopes of him saying anything remotely negative about the VP. I hope he then tells the David "How do you like my pink shirt?" Gregory's of the world where to stick it. ;-)
