Good morning! I will need to leave to get to church around 8:30, so I will have to check on the thread later today. Intersting line-up on some of the shows.

No Julian on Fox this morning, which seems to improve the show.

Not even the indefensible M S M would try and defend the indefensible remarks by Murtha concerning the Haditha incident.

It looks like the shows are picking majority of Republicans. What is up with that? Are the networks becoming conservative. LOL.

Or are they breathlessly awaiting the Pentagon report. Maybe they hope it will come out Memorial Day so they can honor our servicemen and women the best way they know how.

No, the netwroks aren't turning conservative. They have chosen people who will no doubt disagree with the President on immigration, or with the House on immigration. The purpose of all of these Republicans is to show the "split within the GOP." Some of them (McCain, Graham) are guaranteed to infuriate conservatives further. Gonzalez is on so that they can grill him about how his grandparents came to the US.

I am certain that these appearances will carry enough divisive comments to get everyone all riled up at the GOP, if they take the bait.

Notice a certain former senator with a scanty record of achievement and no current political office.
Yet the MSM consider him tele-worthy.

"split within the GOP" man no matter who they have on, they always have to have some agenda. I really can't stand that when the networks do that. To me it is false television. They try to have some Republicans on TV to give people the impression that they are going to be fair and then it turns out that they are just as left as always...just sneaky. Your second sentence is 100 percent true!!!

Yes Ma'am! That is the meme of the day. The press are like vultures, eagerly circling what they perceive as the dying carcass of the Republican majority.

Not that the Democrats don't have problems with absolutely no message except they hate Bush and have been hijacked and coopted by their left wing moonbats. But by the MSM, that doesn't offer up quite the reporting time that the Republicans versus conservatives argument does.

People are angry with incumbents (that 's what MSM was saying), so GOP should be worried - right? MSM is now scratcing its' head how to spin this.

I wonder how Mc Cain will react to all the heckling he received from the ''respectful'' graduates of the New School. Freedom of speech is one thing, but that performance was disgraceful.

Remember the plan here, we want him out of NE. Secret plan is to make him think he has a chance at the nomination -- MSM loves him so they are in on this-- then he won't run for his Senate seat again in 08.

HAGEL FOR PRESIDENT

As soon as I heard that, I hit mute. Nagin is an idiot. He has made so many 'mis-statements', but still got re-elected. Did he sell his house in Dallas and move his family back to NO????

When you choice is between him and a Landrieu - that's not much of a choide.

I want to know how many of the votes for both were frommm people who had to leave, and have not returned (for whatever reason). If they can vote 'absentee' for NO elections, are they also now voting in the elections where they live?

It ashame that his own party does this to him. I think he has no luck at all. Dems of course will bash him, but when you have your own party doing it, that is not fair!

Any One will touch this today?

USA Today - will be in Rather & Mapes land.

Bell South has written to USA Today, denying that it supplied customers' phone records to NSA and demanding that the newspaper retract its story to that effect:

"We are insisting that the paper retract the false and unsubstantiatied statements that have been made regarding our company," [Bell South spokesman Jeff] Battcher said. "They have offered no proof of either of those (contract and call record submission) claims.

"We have no contract with the NSA, never had a contract with the NSA, and have never provided the NSA with any information, ever," Battcher concluded.


Meanwhile, NewsBusters as usual busted the reporter's identity - yes, she is a democratic donor & friend of candidate for Chairman of the Democratic National Committee.

I heard that the dems were not going to call for impeachment - even if they win. No crossed fingers behind the back (lol). I did not hear that Republicans were going after him. Would not surprise me now a days.

From the article:

Leslie Cauley, the USA Today reporter who last week “broke” the news that three major U.S. telecommunications companies were assisting the National Security Agency in building a database to more easily track any communications by potential terrorists, is listed as a donor to former House Minority Leader Richard Gephardt, according to a search of The Center for Responsive Politics Web site, www.opensecrets.org.

Good thing Prez talks about it because MSM chose to ignore it as usual, doing hotel balcony reporting. Even BBC thought it was a big story, so interviewed some ministers from the new cabinet.

It 's a shame that MSM will ignore this historic moment because it was achieved by our great soldiers there.

"....Have you been staying up late, picking guitar and drinkin' lately?....."

Yes, I'm usually up by now. One too many 'Red Hook Nut Brown Ales' last night. The crowd was very appreciative all evening with lots of applause after each number, so the beer flowed a little TOO freely.

:-p

Very True, AB. Now that politics mixed in reporting, they are in deep fears of facing big lawsuit if not revert their story & offer apology to the phone companies.

No, he'll support Bush and the shamnesty with a lot of double-talk. Also, the media is giving him opportunity to try to cover himself for Hagel-Martinez. Expect his attack on Sessions' telling the truth about it. Hagel and McCain still think their betrayal of the citizens is going to be repaid with higher office. Hopefully, we can defeat them both in their next primary.
