I am fascinated at the amount of time being spent on a story about there maybe being a story.

Mika is happy to have a suicide bomber in Iraq to report along with the amazingly good news.

NY Slimes ^ | 11/19/07 | Bill Carter
Roger Ailes, the chairman of the Fox News Channel, calls Shepard Smith his “go-to guy,” the person he wants leading the channel’s coverage any time news breaks. Mr. Ailes has put his network’s money where he wants its chief voice to be. Last week, Mr. Smith signed a new contract that will take him, a former local news reporter from Holly Springs, Miss., into financial territory usually occupied only by network news anchors. Although Fox did not release the exact terms of the new deal, an executive briefed on the them said that Mr. Smith, who is 43, had signed...

Clinton Campaign Copying Nixon's Tricks, Novak Says By Susan Jones CNSNews.com Senior Editor November 19, 2007 (CNSNews.com) - Columnist Robert D. Novak says two Democrats have told him that supporters of Sen. Hillary Clinton are spreading the word that she has "scandalous information" about Sen. Barack Obama -- but has decided not to use it. "The nature of the alleged scandal was not disclosed," Novak wrote in his column over the weekend. "This word-of-mouth among Democrats makes Obama look vulnerable and Clinton look prudent," Novak wrote. Appearing on Fox & Friends Monday morning, Novak said his primary source is a...

Columnist Robert Novak stood by his story Monday that the Clinton campaign is spreading the word that it's holding back on dishing dirt on Barack Obama, and charged the Democratic frontrunner with playing "Nixon tricks." "This is very similar to the kind of trick that Richard Nixon used to pull, where he would say, 'I know some very bad information about the communists supporting George McGovern, but I can't put that out because it wouldn't be right, but I'm just too good of a guy,' " Novak said. Novak's initial report said: "Agents of Sen. Hillary Clinton are spreading the...

There's hope for him as opposed to David Shyster. Scarborough and Tucker Carlson are two others who don't follow the play book some times. Heck, France even elected a republican. Who woulda thunk that?

Not much for me to comment on today. A couple of stories on FNFs I'll see if I can find.

Thanks for the chuckle. I still love Darth Cheney.

I saw this on FNFs but didn't think it was appropriate. Swift Kids For Truth. It used kids in a political ad and the Swift Boat topic is not something to be joked about. Going to have to look into who created this. Just my opinion.

A little more from Imus Returns to TV, Too

The radio personality, who returns to the airwaves Dec. 3 on WABC-AM, will debut the same day on the seven-year-old cable and satellite television station that caters to viewers with homes on the range, the Rural Media Group, Inc., announced Wednesday.

The radio show will be simulcast on weekdays from 6-9 a.m., and will be rebroadcast from 6-9 p.m. each evening, said Patrick Gottsch, founder and president of the Rural Media Group. The program will also be available to RFD's nearly 30 million homes through on-demand services, Gottsch said.

Imus signed a five-year agreement with RFD, Gottsch said. An e-mail sent to Imus' lawyer for comment was not immediately returned Wednesday.

I've never heard of this channel. Anybody get it?

This made me snicker Bahbah! I KNEW yesterday that Matthews, Olberidiot, Schuster, and all the other propagandists at MSNBC would be all over this so I intentionally stayed away from MSNBC. I understand your feelings in not watching this morning. MSNBC has NEVER addressed the false affidavit filed by the potatoe head and never will address the “drunken” Mrs. Greenspan and her involvement in this story either.

On the Plame non-Case, MSNBC has been front and center in colluding with the DNC to undermine a President with their lies. On this topic, they are unwatchable.

As soon as I saw this story Scott McClellan Levels Charges of Deception Against White House Over CIA Leak Case I knew the left was going to have election over it. This was my comment.

"And five of the highest ranking officials in the administration were involved in my doing so: Rove, Libby, the vice president, the president's chief of staff and the president himself."

Awfully strong words. Words have consequences as Sen. McCain would say.

David Shyster immediately misstated the facts. I even heard this morning that Mrs.Joe Wilson has found new life with this story. Oh noes! Let's have an investigation. Oh wait we already had one. What were the results again?

On the brighter side Mo Dowd slings some mud at the Queen today. She’s No Morgenthau. I'm not as smart as Miz Dowd. Had to look up what is a Morgenthau.

The best part is that we're all more concerned about that Thanksgiving turkey than these ones. Gobble, gobble!

“[SNIP] According to Box Office Mojo, Brian De Palma’s new anti-war, anti-American, anti-soldier tour de farce Redacted, winner of the Best Director award at the Venice Film Festival — which tells the stirring and subtle story of how American soldiers raped, murdered, and burned a fourteen year old Iraqi girl, and then raped, murdered, and burned her entire family to silence them, and then raped, murdered, and burned the military investigators, then the news reporters who tried to report on it, then families of random American soldiers, then Mr. Whipple, then all the animals at the petting zoo — has enjoyed a resounding lifetime box office gross of $25,628 dollars.

[SNIP] So what do you want to bet... the lesson Hollywood will take from Redacted — and Lions from Lambs (Tom Cruise, Robert Redford, Meryl Streep, Michael Pena — $13.8 million domestic), In the Valley of Elah (Tommy Lee Jones, Susan Sarandon, Charlize Theron — $6.7 million), and all the other anti-American, spit-on-the-soldiers movies about innocent Moslem terrorists being mugged, raped, and brutalized by vicious, bloodthirsty, criminal American soldiers — the lesson Hollywood takes will be... “Gee, I guess Americans just don’t like war movies anymore; war has become unpopular at the movies!”

You know, like We Were Soldiers ($78 million domestic), Master and Commander ($94 million), Troy ($133 million), 300 ($211 million), and Lord of the Rings: the Two Towers ($342 million).:”

I was listening to one of the Morning shows when they broke a story of Oprah was going to begin actively campaigning for Obama. Complete with dates for appearances in Iowa, N.H. and S.C. My wife said she’ll have a big impact. I don’t disagree but I don’t see Obama as ready for prime time. I found his “yeah I did drugs” explanation disturbing. Seemed to be sending the wrong message to kids. IMHO

Imus will be on WABC radio and WABC streams Rush, Hannity and all their other programming so one would have to conclude they will stream Imus.

Here’s a direct link to their Internet feed. http://wm-eon.vitalstreamcdn.com/live_eonwmss_vitalstream_com_abc-wabcam1

Test it out before the big day. They are already running Imus commercials including the “quack, quack” sound bite.
