    I actually watched the initial statement and question-and-answer session with the press from beginning to end -- and what is actually "bizarre" is HuffPo writer Alana Horowitz' distorted caricature of an editorial being posited as a news account. Prosecutor McCulloch first explained the investigation/deliberation process and noted that evidence was the basis of the ultimate decision that the Grand Jury took. It was necessary, IMO for him to address the agendized speculation from those who were not there and a media that was hungry for a story. McCulloch then summarized the evidence in detail, comparing the physical evidence with the...
  • Why did Establishment media go after Cain, yet leave it to The Enquirer to go after John Edwards?

    Some time back, reports broke about John Edward's supposed extra-marital doings, and the establishment media wouldn't touch it, leaving it to The Enquirer. But the establishment media, or at least a component of it, seems to have no problem doing what seems to be the opposite with Herman Cain. Does the establishment (the political component of it?) want Romney to face Obama? McCain, we were told over and over again, was the toughest guy for Obama to face, and the best choice for Republicans. The MSM, on-the-other-hand, talked incessantly about how they were (at the same time) concerned that Obama...
  • What Rand Paul Is Saying: Laws Can't End Racism, Only You Can. (Libs Like Morality Being Legislated?

    This whole fiasco boils down to three parts: 1.) Tea Party-backed Rand Paul needs to win the Senate seat, not engage in philospohical debates - at least not now. Do that later after the seat is won (which it will be). Why will it be won, regardless of the hit job on Rand Paul? Because most people saw the establishment media pouncing on him simultaneously like a well organized machine - from both the left and the right - and they know that they were out to get him. 2.) Rand Paul himself has said that he is personally against...

    SNIPPET: "So how could the major media fail to hold ACORN to account all these years? I have my pet theory. Political correctness has been slowly rotting the establishment media to its core, to the point where few professional journalists would dare launch a serious investigation into the exalted Association of Community Organizers for Reform Now. Why? Simple: according to the tenets of political correctness, the racial makeup of the communities being “organized” automatically confers the presumption of moral superiority upon ACORN. So all those nasty rumors about ACORN must be no more than lies spread by racist propagandists. To...
