A Slobbering Love Affair: The True (And Pathetic) Story of the Torrid Romance Between Barack Obama and the Mainstream Media

Donna Brazile says snatching a blanket is not a felony or a misdemeanor because we have a “black president.” She later tries to amend that to we have an “American president.” Is she from Illinois by chance?
ABC News coverage of the inauguration, [snip] ……hosts Charles Gibson and Diane Sawyer were joined by Donna Brazile, a Democratic African-American author, educator and political activist,… who gave a humorous account of her [snatching] the complementary fleece blanket she found abandoned in Barack Obama’s chair after the swearing-in ceremony. Apparently she wanted a souvenir of the momentous occasion and when the opportunity arose, [she took it.]

Gibson says:
"We’re going to check with the legal staff and find out if that’s a felony or a misdemeanor."

“Brazile then gave a stern look into the camera and said:
“We have a black president–it’s neither.”

From Powerline Blog....

"Conservatives often deride journalists as members of an elite, but the real problem is rather the opposite: most reporters and editors aren't very smart.

There are, of course, honorable exceptions. But journalists purport to sit in judgment of businessmen, and the truth is that a large majority of journalists aren't smart enough to understand what businessmen do. This thought is brought to mind (as it so often is) by the corrections section of the New York Times, which this morning included these remarkable items:..."

"The Breakthrough: Politics and Race in the Age of Obama,"

You remember Gwen Ifill don‘t ya?
The PBS non-biased moderator of the VP debate, and her non-exploiting, proposed inauguration day released book.

What a fraud, or make that, just another fraud.

There is a hilarious take on Caroline Kennedy at
‘The People’s Cube’
“I can see the Russian Tearoom from my Fifth Avenue Penthouse”

“The party should have no problem with her anointment as long as she can swim better that her uncle.”

Where is the press on Caroline Kennedy, didn't she help vet peeps for obama?

Libs on Sweet Caroline:
"I feel bad for her," said one Democrat who didn't support her bid. "I can't believe they're bringing up the marriage. She quit. What's the difference now?”
***“Let it go."***

Let it go? They should be diving headfirst into her dumpsters. Didn’t pay her taxes? What is it with Democrats and their taxes. Didn’t Biden say it is patriotic? An illegal alien nanny, and no SS payments? What kind of panties does Caroline wear, what does she pay for them, inquiring minds want to know.

This is an article from May, but it has some interesting statements about McClatchy reporters in Iraq. Even the comments are interesting. One thing of interest is reporters use translators. Think of the changes in meaning that could be manipulated. Warren Strobel is always a red flag person.

McClatchy Newspapers put out a news wire on April 29 under the byline of Hannah Allam (McClatchy’s Middle East bureau chief in Cairo, who traveled to Iraq for this story), with

LAGOS, Nigeria – One of Nigeria's biggest daily newspapers reported that police implicated a goat in an attempted automobile theft. In a front-page article on Friday, the Vanguard newspaper said that two men tried to steal a Mazda car two days earlier in Kwara State, with one suspect transforming himself into a goat as vigilantes cornered him.

The paper quoted police spokesman Tunde Mohammed as saying that while one suspect escaped, the other transformed into a goat as he was about to be apprehended.

The newspaper reported that police paraded the goat before journalists, and published a picture of the animal.

Police in the state couldn't immediately be reached for comment.
