The dims are really loving this. It has taken Jack Abramoff off the front page of the news. I still think that the money scandle and the leaks of national security information will come back and bite them big time.

"The refusal of this administration to level with the American people on matters large and small is very disturbing," said Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, D-N.Y.

I wonder if Her Fuehreress feels the same way about Monicagate, Chinagate, the Vince Foster suicide and a host of other scandals her co-presidency stonewalled the public over . . .

Let the MSM obsess. It reflects badly on them.

When you point one finger at someone else, at least three of your own fingers are pointing right back at you.

LOL...I wondered how long it would be before someone tied Halliburton into this.........

I received an e-mail joke last night that summed up my thoughts pretty well: "I'd still rather go quail hunting with Cheney than driving with Kennedy."

Number one reason they did not release it fast enough: They were busy being human, taking Harry to the hospital and treating him. Sorry if David Gregory can`t understand that, but this is what human beings do.

Why did Ted Kennedy wait so long to report the fatal accident at Chappaquitic? Why did the Clinton White House wait so long to report the "suicide" of Vince Foster?

I got stuck in traffic last night and was listening to some POS radio program from DC, the idiots on there were claiming Chenay was drunk, the he had to be sadeted after the shooting, the radio announcer tried to compare the 18 hours Cheney took to get in the news to the missing 18 minute of the watergate tapes. It was hilarious until I realised these people were serious. Crazy, they are all certified Loonie Tunes.

Hypocrisy is thy middle name of the democ-rats. Call me nuts but I could have sworn I heard someone say Teddy "Chappaquiddick" Kennedy even got into this as well, saying something about the "delay". Can you imagine? If you thought hypocrisy had reached it`s highest level with the drunkards questioning of Alito, this has got to be the sky shattering ulitimate.

Upon realizing he had just shot Mr. Whittington, Cheney should have rushed to a microphone. If necessary he should have been airlifted to the nearest TV station with a network tie in and made the anouncement. That was much more important than getting medical help for Mr. Whittington, in fact, by getting his priorities screwed up and immediately getting aid to the shootee he cheated the honorable members of the press out of a significant story.Whittington should have died in order for the Press to be able to report something of substance. It's all bush's fault and his running dog Whittington.

And they get a pass with their double-standards of what is bad taste, as well.

I heard Leno make a "joke" the other night that the only problem with the Cheney accident is that it wasn't President Bush he was hunting with.

Holy cow! And I thought Letterman was the wacko lib of them all. They`re all freggin` idiots anyway those overpaid night show morons. Remember Craig Kilborn and his "snipers wanted" ad with a picture of a target on Bushs face? Like Clint Eastwood says "It`s a felony to threaten the President even if you don`t mean it", but they all get a pass.

"The MSM's obsession is showing."

The word "obsession" hits the nail on the head. This has gone past ridiculous into downright weird. What, after all, is this about? It is not really about the shooting itself, but about this supposedly horrific delay between reporting the story on Saturday evening - when few would have heard about it anyway - or on Sunday morning. And the freaking press just won't let it go. Last night, CBS devoted the first 8 minutes of the evening news to this non-story. Unbelievable.

Bingo. If Clinton had simply told the truth about Monica on day one, the public would have forgiven him and the country would have been spared a year-long national nightmare.

There were several stories about this in today's Seattle Post-Intelligencer (way-left), one of which quoted the state Democratic Party chairman, comparing this to Chappaquiddick. He actually lied - uncorrected by the reporter - and said that Cheney failed to get Whittington medical attention and failed to call the police, but simply drove away in his car. Why tell the truth when the media will protect your lies?
