Face the Nation and ABC seem the only shows worthwhile.

Most of us can repeat the dialogue before the other guests even say a word.

But jus what is a voter activist?

A rep from Acorn? The notorious voter fraud experts.

I'll need a nap by noon!


SUNDAY Chris Matthews Show

Woodward's book, North Korea, and a world that hates us, the 3 topics Matthews teases at the top of the show. GloriaBorger, Bob Woodward, Andrea Mitchell, and David Brooks make up the panel.

Nope, not gonna cover this Bush blood bath, it's too predictable, everyone is critical of Bush, brutally so, even Brooks, the only surprise, Matthews didn't mention Foleygate in the opening.

The panel is psycho-analyzing Bush. "Matthews says, Bush is in two levels of denial, to the public and to himself." (Good God, let's commit him to a mental institution!! )

"Yes", 8 to 4 of Matthews' favorite reporters agree, Bush is looking for an exit strategy.

LOL, 10 minutes into the show and Matthews says to Bob Woodward, "Bob, I know you hate psycho-babble!!" (I pegged the message of this show just right...Bush needs a shrink.)

Now who is Matthews hyping more? The wisdom contained in Bob Woodward's book, or Robin Williams' new movie? (Hollywood Hardball, let's elect a comedian for president.)

Andrea Mitchell says our biggest problem is how hated we are across the world. Borger says voters in 08 will vote for someone who will rid us of our image of arrogance, a more bi-partisan candidate.

Predictions from the panel, "tell Chris something he doesn't know." (Matthews, you are the one who needs a shrink!)
Borger says we will discover Hastert knew little or nothing about Foley.

Woodward: "Bunker mentality" a republican's opinion of the Bush White House.

Mitchell said the Bushes are still very mad at Andrew Card for talking to Bob Woodward.

In Atlanta, Chris Matthews' Sunday Show is on at 6 am, while it's still dark outside...........and inside Matthews' head!


Something I just noticed by watching a replay of Beltway Boys, perhaps a theme we will hear often in the coming months.
Mort echoed Gloria Borger and the Matthews panel. Mort predicted in 08, the democrats will need to put up a candidate who is more bi-partisan. People are sick of the Bush years, don't ya know.

Mort was lamenting Mark Warner dropping out of the race, and said this will hurt democrats in 08. He said Warner would have been a good candidate in 08, when voters will be looking to end the Bush years of divisiveness. Mort and Fred agreed McCain or Guiliani fits the bill on the republican side.

So the pundits are ignoring the dirt bomb dropped on Warner about possible bimbo eruptions. No mention of who would so such an ugly thing to a man who has dropped out of the race.

Borger has long since gone over to the dark side. It's been years she's had an outside the beltway thought.

And for a final comment.....President Bush is the least partisan president we've ever had. He has remained civil, non partisan, reaching out time and again only to get stomped on by the demonrats. How come the beltway jackasses never mention that!

Good morning AB and everyone.

I'll be off most of today but try to catch what's going on later when I can. Congratulations to the winners last weekend and good luck to everyone today.

I sure hope Freepers keep the enthusiasm we're known for and not get depressed over pundits, polls and politico's who are usually wrong anyway. These guys have not gotten one major election right since Clinton won reelection. They missed Gore, Kerry and the 2002 midterm election. Maybe they think the odds are with them this time.

Thanks, AB & Good Morning to all.

Now, this sunday's Media Nuggets

###### So This Is Journalism? Jonathan Karl, ABC News national security correspondent calls Woodward's bluff.

###### Reuters editor writes hit book on Ann Coulter - “Brainless: The Lies and Lunacy of Ann Coulter” and ends up job-less. He was FIRED.

###### Changing Times - Chris Wallace outed as Card-Carrying Democrat! Meanwhile, CBS News bans it's employees from contributing to political campaigns.

###### NewsCorp owns MySpace & Fox, only Rules are different. One allows a teen to run "Kill Bush" campaign, while the other Bans CRITICISM of Clinton.

###### Catherine Herridge promoted as an anchor. Rita Cosby named as MSNBC daytime news anchor. Monday Bill O'Reilly will be interviewing President Bush. Lloyd Grove out from NY Daily News. Gails Collins out as NYTimes editorial page editor.

###### Associated [with terrorists] Press smears our soldiers. Our great Army continuously beating it's recruitment goal. This is the headline they chose to give - "Lower standards help Army bring in recruits". What they don't know - Army standards are much higher than the unpatriotic AP thugs.

###### Difference between the Sense-less Old Media and the Sensible New Media.

###### "This fake research is an insult to every man, woman and child who lost their lives." - Iraqi blogger responds to CNN's Suzanne Maalox moment during the presser.

###### NBC loses Times Square screen to News Corp.

###### William J. Clinton Foundation, enters the political debate & escapes the non-profit scrutiny.

###### Tribune Co[owner of several newspapers] sold its corporate jet to meet the losses & it's counterpart, LATimes is creating a "Manhattan Project" to find ideas for re-engaging the reader.Just Printing The Truth Will Help Greatly..

You said it exactly right: ".....President Bush is the least partisan president we've ever had. He has remained civil, non partisan, reaching out time and again only to get stomped on by the demonrats. How come the beltway jackasses never mention that!"

That's what is so disturbing! Democrats were determined from the git-go to punish Bush for Clinton's impeachment. Bush wasn't even in Washington back then!! This hatred from the left is totally responsible for the divisiveness in Washington.

C-span Cook Report guests Amy Walter (democrat background) and Jennifer Duffy, (republican background) agree with a SC caller who says the Republicans are really missing Tom DeLay. .. In this election cycle, and in handling the Foley mess.

on Maryland they can't predict Steele (who's run a good campaign), will win. (Can't or won't, I can't tell)

Duffy says yes, there are underneath racial tones in the TN senate race.

Michigan governor's race = Republican DeVos could knock off incumbant democrat.

Walter said Bob Ney's problems are hurting Republicans in his district, it will go Democrat, so might all races in Ohio. Governors race is over Strickland will beat Blackwell. DeWine hasn't run a good race, he's behind, Cook Report considers his race a toss-up.

Cook Report picks solid win for Texas Governor Perry.

Sum up? Republicans are in big big trouble all over the country.

Morning AB, everyone, looks like another great thread in the making.
Poor rat panel on Chrissy's pathetic show, they still think McCain has a chance.

One of the topics covered this week at Red state was just that, who the blogosphere thinks will be our next potus.
McCain was on the list but wait until you see where.

It's at Red State here"

http://www.redstate.com/

Along with lots of other great topics like exposing an AP writer for doing an editorial and trying to pass it off as straight news--Tom Raum,
and then there is the Claire McCaskill fiasco. Seems McCaskill has a few problems at home with her not so nice hubby who gets a little violent with his women--rat family values here. Talent should have no problem knocking her off.

There is also a gripping photo of Petty Officer 2nd Class Michael Monsoor only two days before he died, must see photo it will tear your heart out. We definitely have the absolute best fighting force ever assembled and anyone who advocates they surrender,cut and run or anything other than win should definitely just shut up.
Red State also has a good piece on the demise of Air Amerika and why rat radio just won't work in a free market where advertisers actually expect something from what they purchase
and still another look at Rick Santorum and how good he really is.
Check it out.

Absolutely he behaves how a President should and shows he is the President of the whole of the United States not just the Republican Party. A true head of State.

He also does the balance well on then doing the other half of his role and supporting his own party but never rubbishing or alienating the other side.

President Bush is the least partisan President we have ever had

Absolutely true OldFriend.

Problem is the Demonrats are no better than terrorists. They see GW's lack of pointing out their constant deficiencies as a sign of weakness just like a true terrorist would analyze the situation.

Accordingly,just like the terrorists, they go after the President all the more. With demon rats and terrorists you have to constantly fight back telling the truth about who they really are,political parties based on a sheer lust for power offering nothing to constituents but endless misery.

This is the one thing they cannot stand, since no one in their right mind would opt for either the life or political style of either a terrorist or a Democrat.

The dems are always about run and hide. They think not dealing with an issue means that issue doesn't exist.

President Bush has had to clean up their deliberate avoidance of serious issues and those issues will haunt us for another generation at least.

Anyone who wants to go back to that type of governing is no patriot.

Two thoughts:

1. The Bush years of divisiveness will only end if a democrat is elected, as far as the press is concerned.

2. If the media would carry some stories about all of the GOOD our nation does, instead of their constant bellyaching about no WMD's, Bush lied, etc., perhaps we might have a more positive image in the world! THEY are the ones responsible for our poor reputation!

Thanks for the Red State link, Rod. I watched the McCaskill video. Notice how Clinton looks a little peeved to be ignored for so long! I do worry, however, about McCaskill and her hubby. My gut reaction tells me she may actually pick up votes of sympathy for this. Are we sure highlighting her abusive husband is going to hurt her chances?

Good Morning!

I know things get going fast and serious on the Sunday thread this early, but for those still waking up over a cup of coffee, and may want a light spell of humor or a little giggle to help them awake and get armed for the day....thought I would share this article by Tom Purcell...

Nightmare world of liberals

Liberals are dreamers. I have proof.

According to the Ottawa Citizen newspaper, a dream researcher from John F. Kennedy University in California studied the dream sequences of self-described liberals and conservatives. The researcher's name is Kelly Bulkeley.

Bulkeley found, in a nutshell, that liberals are restless sleepers who have a higher number of bizarre, distorted dreams, whereas conservatives are more likely to sleep well and have dreams that portray normal characters, settings and activities.

Here's one interesting finding: Both liberals and conservatives have amorous dreams but they sure do go about it differently.

Liberals are far more likely to dream of wild encounters with strangers or a variety of partners. Liberal women are far more likely to dream of themselves with other women.

Conservatives, on the other hand, are far more likely to have such dreams about their spouses or current partners -- probably while fully clothed with the lights off, and only after the kids are asleep.

Bulkeley found another key difference. Whereas conservative dreams focus on the here and now, liberal dreams have no boundaries.

"Liberals don't just dream about what is," says Bulkeley, "but what could be or what they wish could be."

A world in which dictators are nice? Or religious extremists become atheists? Or Teddy Kennedy is sober?

Another difference: Conservatives show a higher tendency for lucid dreaming. That is, they're aware they're asleep and able to wake themselves if the dream gets rocky.

I do this all the time. When I have one recurring nightmare -- that it's Monday afternoon and I'm way behind on a deadline -- I simply will myself awake. Unfortunately, when I wake it's usually Monday afternoon and I'm way behind on a deadline.

Another interesting finding: Conservative males sleep the most soundly and tend not to remember their dreams, whereas liberal women are the most restless sleepers and fantastical dreamers and they remember plenty.

That makes perfect sense. Many conservative males have a good job, a nice home and a lovely wife. Such an existence promotes sound sleeping.

But I don't know how liberal women sleep at all. How could anyone get some shut-eye with so many people, real and imagined, jumping in and out of the bed?

Which brings us to bad dreams. Liberals, at the moment, have a much higher frequency of nightmares. Bulkeley thinks this has to do with the current political climate. Liberals fear and loathe Bush, and have nightmares about it (when Clinton was president, conservatives had more nightmares).

For instance, one female liberal dreamt that Bush won the election with 80 percent of the vote. A male liberal said he dreamt he was at a presidential rally. Bush said to the crowd, "We should be proud to sacrifice our freedoms for America!" and the crowd went wild. This caused the male liberal to wake in a cold sweat.

Bulkeley says that although dreams appear to be jumbled and mixed up, they are actually expressing a complex but meaningful language of symbol and metaphor. Dreams mean things. And a good dream, properly interpreted, can help us better understand ourselves and the world.

What's just as interesting is that everybody dreams -- even dogs. Which reminds me of an old Garry Shandling line: "What is a dog nightmare, anyhow? You're drinking out of the toilet and the lid falls on your snout?"

In any event, Bulkeley concludes that our dreams provide an accurate reflection of contemporary American politics. And though the research reinforces the stereotype that conservatives are repressed and uptight, Bulkeley says it also shows that many liberals may be hanging on the edge of well-being.

I couldn't agree more. Just last week I dreamt of a beautiful woman. She asked me who I was going to vote for and I told her. She screamed so loudly she nearly woke the dead.

She was a liberal and I was her nightmare.

The Bush years of divisiveness will only end if a democrat is elected, as far as the press is concerned.

It's the same type of logic that blessed us with Carter.

IOW, the dems will only stop their incessant lying and misrepresenting, tearing down of our country, IF THEY GET THEIR WAY ON EVERY ISSUE.

Did the media ever rant when slick willie got legislation (LARGEST TAX HIKE IN HISTORY) with not a single republican vote?

The impeachment was a right wing plot, not a logical and legal reaction to a man who lied to a federal judge during a deposition.

Franky, I am sick to the death of the media and their hatemongering cohorts in our government.

Here's what I said on Phsstpok's thread:

"The only hope is the trend, and I think the trend is our friend.

I say that because most of these observers agree that up through the end of September, things were looking up for the Republicans. The Foley scandal brought that to a screeching halt, and the democrats are now up.

The trend is, though, that the Foley scandal has run its fill. There is no more to spill, and now the Republicans can get back on message. Will they? Will they allow the DBM to invent something new to beat them with? Will they allow the DBM to bury the Reid land deal? Will we? Is this why Barone is glum, or is it because of these last two weeks?

Lets see what happens over the next three weeks. Everyone is looking backwards. What is ahead of us?"

So, to answer your question, yes, the Dems are up right now. If the election is held today (which is silly, of course, as it is not), they well might win. I honestly believe the DBM, encouraged by their success over the Foley flareup, are going to try again. I think they'll overplay their hand, as they always do, and the Republicans will maintain control.

In your link about the Rueters editor who lost his job over his book on Ann- his fellow employees decided to "protest" on hi behalf.....you won't believe this-- check it out...

A Reuters employee who insisted on anonymity out of concern at angering management said that the 20 or so employees at the markets desk where Mr. Maguire had been one of two editors in charge “took a group coffee break” in solidarity on Thursday.

ROFL!!!!

Those Libs really must have been all fired up over such injustice......

And they think they can protect us from terrorists?

oh my- what a good morning......I love starting my day with laughter.....

Words of wisdom as always Morgan,stop listening to the MSM/DBM and a few supposed conservative talkers who have lost their way.
We have a huge chance to change the "demagogue Foley/Hastert agenda" if we just grab hold of the information that is out there.
Rush Limbaugh pointed us in the direction to the strata sphere where he downloaded 18 pages of dingy harry real estate info.
Strata,of the strata shpere, also points out that the big Foley "deep throat",Fordham,
"sounds more and more like the jilted lover who protected foley for ten years then decided to break with him to get him to stop"

All this only days before a major election who'd a thunk it, what a coincidence.

Right now Dingy Harry is just begging to take Foley's place. The strata sphere has got a ton of info(courtesy of rush's prompt)that is really worthwhile checking out. At

http://strata-sphere.com/blog

There is also the mother load of info there about many of the real estate transactions of Dingy Harry and his sons who have been playing fast and lose with zoning, and who knows what else from mob associations with lawyers to whatever.
It's all there in black and white and I logged in millions and millions of dollars of real estate transactions there yesterday also at:

Hope I got all that right.

It's gonna be interesting to hear how his dinginess turned $400,000 into $1,100,000 without even owning the property, he must be taking lessons from her highness. http://strata-sphere.com/blog/index.php/archives/category/uncategorized/reids-land-deals/
