Thompson Unloads on Fox News for 'Bias' ^

American Thinker ^ | November 25, 2007 | Rick Moran
Former Tennessee Senator and presidential candidate Fred Thompson has been accused of lacking fire to run for the presidency. Seeking to alter that image, Thompson fired away at Chris Wallace of Fox News this morning, accusing the network of being biased against his campaign: Thompson said, "This has been a constant mantra of Fox, to tell you the truth." He noted that other conservatives have praised his bid for the GOP nomination and took issue with a Fox promo that focused on polling in New Hampshire, where Thompson is registering in the single digits. He said he is running second...

Mark Penn tells us there is nothing to worry about. Hillary is going to win, no matter what.

Penn is perfect for Hillary. He’s fat, ugly and a spin master. “She has strength and experience.”

I was watching some of the low lights of the NoSoPerky One’s puff piece interview with Satan on the Mourning Joe show. They played the clip of Satan saying it was “inevitable” that she would be president while they chuckled about it.

Good grief, they are trying to pretend that Rove says that the Congress pushed the Administration into the Iraq war. That is not what he said. All he said was they preferred that they hold off on the vote on the Iraq war resolution.

Ah, you saw that too.They purposes misstated his comments and then played the video to try and prove their point. Pitiful. Willie Guiess shame on you.

Joe always has a lot of political advice. Too bad he's a former congressman. I was wondering this morning how he lost his seat. Was he beat by a RAT or a republican?

Kiran Chetry was all excited about tonight's CNN BoobTube debate. Trying to decide if I'll even watch this Global Warming questions being asked by a snowman level of debate. I'm sure we'll only see the gotcha moments replayed tomorrow. *sigh*

Bill Clinton Flatly Asserts He Opposed War at Start ^

NY Times ^ | Nov. 28, 2007 | By PATRICK HEALY
During a campaign swing for his wife, former President Bill Clinton said flatly yesterday that he opposed the war in Iraq “from the beginning” — a statement that is more absolute than his comments before the invasion in March 2003. Before the invasion, Mr. Clinton did not precisely declare that he opposed the war. A week before military action began, however, he did say that he preferred to give weapons inspections more time and that an invasion was not necessary to topple Saddam Hussein. At the same time, he also spoke supportively about the 2002 Senate resolution that authorized military...

He's either deliberately trying to sabotage her campaign or he really is pathological.

NY Post - Page Six

IMUS BASHERS FACE VENGEANCE

November 29, 2007 — ALL those politically correct types who piled on last April when Don Imus went down for making his bad “nappy-headed ho’s” joke had better duck and cover on Monday, when the I-Man goes back to work on WABC Radio.
“I think he will have some scores to settle,” the station’s general manager, Phil Boyce, told Page Six yesterday.

It is doubtful Imus will ever forgive CBS chief Les Moonves, who fired him, or regular guest Tim Russert, the host of NBC’s “Meet the Press,” who was “an invisible man” while Imus was under attack.

Private eye Bo Dietl, who will join Imus in the 8 a.m. hour on Monday, also named Harold Ford Jr. and Al Roker as two Imus regulars who abandoned him in his hour of need. “They turned their backs on him so fast,” Dietl said yesterday. “Al Roker had his stomach stapled - he should have had his mouth stapled.”

One longtime listener wondered, “Will Imus ever give Newsweek editors another chance to plug their books on his show since they cut and ran when Al Sharpton started his crusade to get him off the air?”

Dietl said Imus’ controversial remark “brought attention to that Rutgers basketball team. They really benefited. It turned out to be a positive thing.” Dietl expects “a kinder, gentler Imus” next week, “but I don’t know how long that will last.”

Sounds like Bo has been the unnamed source for a while now.

My morning commute was quite enjoyable today. It was good to hear Imus, Charles and Bubba was on the air. Didn’t start listening until 6:30 AM EST. Nice to hear some of the old guests Doris Kearns Goodwin and Sen. McCrazy.

Interesting that they are doing a live show from Radio City Music Hall? Didn’t hear a peep about that beforehand.

I heard Bill Bennet would be a guest on Mourning Joe. Maybe Erin Burnett will apologize again for her Monkey comments.

Joe started the show discussing how Satan is going to go negative in Iowa because she's looooooosing. Mika was sad.

So Bernie is employed again. I just heard his voice for the first time.

Sen. Dudd is still delusional about his presidential aspirations. Something I heard locally is that someone gave him a lot of money for his campaign even knowing he’s got NO CHANCE. Hey at least he’s out of our state for a while. You never see him around here until election year anyways.

Bo on now.
