Who should apologize?!?

Just got done watching Wolf Blitzer interview Joe Wilson, Wilson is the husband of Valeria Plame, the C.I.A. agent who was sold out by Karl Rove to score political points.

Let's me repeat that, Karl Rove, abused his position and security clearance to exact revenge against Joe Wilson, by disclosing the name of an undercover C.I.A. operative, not only putting in jeapordy the life of Valeria Plame but also her contacts as well as the security of the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA to score political points.

Wolf Blitzer had the audacity to ask Joe Wilson if no charges were filed against Karl Rove, a likely possibility considering who currently sits in the office of the president, would he apologize to Karl Rove.

Let me repeat that WOLF BLITZER, asked a man who's wife was put in danger to apologize to the person who put her life in danger...



Wolf Blitzer y ou have some nerve, so if charges are filed against Karl Rove, will you, Wolf Blitzer apologize to Joe Wilson?


Hey Wolf, while you're at it let's apologize to Bin Laden...


So much interest in NASA and the scrubbed shuttle mission. Its a rather pleasant surprise actually, its nice to see the media taking an interest in science rela... WAITAMINUTE!!!! Mind getting distracted... must focus... KARL... ROVE.

So the media has taken a rather unexpected interest in NASA, no surprise there, Scott McClellan probably begged them to scrub the mission on purpose because he's sick of dodging questions related to Karl Rove. Poor Scott, serve the devil, you're bound to get burned.

Its little wonder that the Daily Show is so popular, its actually nice seeing actual news and stories that things that matter. Its also nice seeing frank and accurate commendation by host Jon Stewart.

You ever notice how hollywood has a tendency to release tv shows and movies with similar themes? Its no coincidence, if a movie or tv show is expected to do well, or is doing well, studios rush to cash in on the money being generated. CSI, CSI: Miami wouldn't exist if it weren't for Law and Order. Just as "Deep Impact" and "Armageddon" were released within the same year.

So how is it that the non-Fox News related media hasn't jumped on the "Daily Show" bandwagon? With the media's unwillingness to brave any frontiers, the Daily Show's success should be something the media should be jumping on like Karl Rove on a gay-baiting scandal. Instead we get crap like: The Situation: with Tucker Carlson.

Tucker Carlson is a dick, everybody knows that. His previous show Unfiltered (not to be confused with the also cancelled Air America Show staring the man Chuck D) was cancelled... he wears a boy tie a BOW TIE.

So, COME ON media... George Bush is a lame duck, follow the lead of the White House Press corp and report on some ACTUAL news... take a chance and be responsible journalists. I mean, yeah coverage of NASA is great... but why does it have to take a scandal in the white house to prompt it!?!

Oh boy, at first I was going to write about something I heard on the Jerry Springer show. Someone wrote in an email talking about how Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson said that god would send a hurricane to destroy Disneyland for their support of homosexuality. But in reality the hurricane sparred not only Disneyland, but the liberal areas as well. Instead the focus of the hurricane was conservative areas, thus in the pov of these two "great" spiritual leaders, god was in fact punishing conservatives.

However, in the process of doing research on this claim, I found this disgusting piece of information:

"Robertson's claims of the power of his prayers. For example, Robertson claims to have used the power of prayer to steer hurricanes away from his companies' Virginia Beach, Virginia headquarters. He took credit for steering the course in 1985 of Hurricane Gloria, which caused millions of dollars of destruction in many states along the east coast. He made a similar claim about another destructive storm, Hurricane Felix, in 1995." --source

I have to say, I am absolutely disgusted, but not suprised, during the 2000 presidential election Pat Robertson was linked to a story where "pollsters" asked McCain supporters if they would be more or less likely to vote for McCain if they knew he had fathered an illegitimate child who was black. In the conservative, race-conscious South, that's not a minor charge. We had no idea who made the phone calls, who paid for them, or how many calls were made. Effective and anonymous: the perfect smear campaign. source

There is a special level of hell for people like Pat Robertson... this is why I dislike religion, its man made. Religion is dependent upon the intent of human beings, the congregation looks to its spiritual leaders to interpret the intent of god. But human beings are fallible and prone to things like lusting for power. So while god is divine religion is inherently corrupt. Pat Robertson should thank his god that there is separation of church and state in this country, if there wasn't he could be tried and convicted for crimes against god and christianity.

Scott McClellan, how much is your soul?

I have to give it up for Ari Fleischer, he couldn't stand the lies so he got out of the White House, but Scott McClellan, even when caught in a lie, won't tell the truth.

For two years, the White House has insisted that presidential adviser Karl Rove had nothing to do with the leak of a CIA officer's identity. And President Bush said the leaker would be fired

Let's hope that the 30 pieces of silver you were paid for your soul was worth it.

Ah... Republican thy name is hypocrite...

Again, Republicans continue to throw stones in glass houses. Republicans blast Sen. Clinton on Bush attack

Let's compare:

Hillary Rodham Clinton: "I sometimes feel that Alfred E. Neuman is in charge in Washington,"

Karl Rove: "Liberals saw the savagery of the 9/11 attacks and wanted to prepare indictments and offer therapy and understanding for our attackers. Conservatives saw the savagery of 9/11 and the attacks and prepared for war."

Hmmm.... I wonder which is worse.
