If they mention it, their guys go down. If they don't mention it, THEY go down.

I am sooooo loving the crumbling of the MSM...! And the left.

Mark Levin said something about Biden saying Reid will step down next month. I didn't catch the full details.

USA Today reported it this morning as well. I just was interested as to whether the media would cover it with the ferver they've given Foley.

OK and so the GOP leaders need to be trumpeting "Harry Reid should resign his position as leader until a full investigation into his inappropriate handling of land deals." Why do we have to be so nice.... DAMN just DAMN.

Nothing noble about it, however. Self-preservation eventually trumps politics. When more and more people tune out the MSM, it begins to deprive them of the luxury of their viewpoint.

I mean, politics is okay and all, but a man's gotta make the yacht payments.

I read where ABC,NBC, CBS and CNN had a combined total of over 125 stories on their channels over the past few weeks on Foley alone. Not, quiet quid pro quo.

I just forwarded a tip to ABC News as they failed to address the story or to admit that their news coverage is highly biased in favor of the 'rats. MSM need all the help we can give them.

I sent three e-mails to FOX (Hume, Hannity, and programming)comparing two weeks of non-stop Foley coverage, vs. nary a whisper about Harry Reid's land deals.

Let's hope so! I guess he's going to kick and scream till the bloody end just like others in his party, rather than resign for the good of the party AND his country.

By the by...NV has a GOP governor, Guinn.

Two sentences max. I watched.

it followed a long, detailed report on Foley's aide testifying for 5 hours today, who will testify tomorrow, and showwed clip of Bush campaigning with Hastert today.

Perfunctory

There was speculation floating a couple weeks ago that Reid would step down so Hillary Clinton could become the Dem leader in the Senate.

There were 2 theories on that:

1 - That the party were dangling that carrot for Hillary to not run for the presidency.

2 - That Hillary would prefer being Senate Majority Leader (assuming Dems take control of the Senate), as that would be a better platform for her 'leadership' than a polarizing a presidential run.

I loved the 'joke' closure on Special Report.

There had evidently been some flak about a 'D' after foley's name at one time, so they checked their archives.

A 'D' was shown after Nixon, Michael Jackson, and several others.

BFD. I'll be satisfied when they run 3 special reports a day on Reid. Of course I'll be satisfied when my wife lets me have a live in 25 YO girl friend. About equal likelihood for both of those situations to occur.

talk of Harry Reid stepping down has nothing to do with his land deals and it' s not new.

"August 03, 2006
"...Some high level Democratic Party political insiders have shared with TWN details of a potential shift in vectors for several of the major political stars in that party.

First of all, Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid, whom most give high marks for the manner in which he has stewarded the Dems in the Senate despite the absence of a clear Democratic Party chief, has sent private signals to Senator Hillary Clinton and other stalwarts of the party that he "would like to" step down from his post in early 2009. Reid has not stated definitively that he will -- but he apparently prefers "whipping" the Party from behind and the side rather than serving as commander-in-chief on the Senate floor.

What Reid is offering Senator Hillary Clinton is his total, robust support to succeed him as Senate Majority Leader if she elects not to pursue the Democratic nomination for President."...

I predict Olberman and Matthews will say it's nostalgic and heartwarming to see a politician who's only after MONEY instead of 16 year old boys. Thus setting a new standard for democrats: They're good guys if they have sex with boys or swindle millions or drown women or have affairs in the oval office. If a Republican sends a dirty IM, though--OUT!

And for the dull of mind, I'm not excusing Foley.

I would love to see a Zucker like film spoof of the Republican Leadership (Hastert, Frist) and Bush, changing the tires of Nancy Peloci and Harry Reid while they coddle terrorists.

The same point can be made, you can't defeat your political opponent by being nice.

That would be an awesome film.
