    There are probably some Liberal “hacks” out there – just nowhere near as many as there are Conservative ones. And you’re more likely to see Sasquatch on “Dancing With The Stars,” than of seeing a real Liberal, hack or not, on the Sunday DC Villager jircle cerk shows – with the exception of the occasional Krugman sighting on ABC.

    And whatever “hacks” we have, are likely to tell the truth – let’s face facts, Obama didn’t exactly light-up the room in the debate last week.

    Now, if Obama had won the debate, FOX and Radio Rushwanda would have spent the week until the VP debates, telling you that Romney won – BIG TIME!

    Hell, even if Mitt had urped on stage, wet and soiled his pants, and had a meltdown like HAL in “2001 A Space Odessey,” and had sprocket’s fly out of his head like the maid on “The Jetsons,” FOX and Fiends (sic) would have spent the whole morning telling their audience “THAT WAS THE GREATEST DEBATE PERFORMANCE IN HISTORY!!! Mitt Romney’s puking, peeing and sh*tting himself, and melting down on the debate stage, was a metaphore for the Obama Presidency. Surely you realize that – you’re SMART! Ok, inhale… now exhale… now inhale again… See? I told you you were smart!”

    Rachel was flummoxed?
    Chris Matthews was mad?
    Well, so was I!

    A decision that in reality takes one or two days of careful research to make is somehow stretched out into a process that involves two years of relentless, suffocating mind-warfare, an onslaught of toxic media messaging directed at liberals, conservatives and everyone in between….

    Amen, Matthew. But there is much profit to be made! By horrible people! So the beat goes on.

    Off Topic (from Yahoo): “Wading into an explosive social issue, Republican Mitt Romney on Tuesday said he would not pursue any abortion-related legislation if elected president.

    “There’s no legislation with regards to abortion that I’m familiar with that would become part of my agenda,”” [end quote]

    Gee, I’m SO convinced coming from a man of profound personal integrity and who certainly hasn’t said he would not SIGN any legislation that might be part of his party’s agenda.

    Wow.. The lord shall provide! 🙂
    “I don’t trust Romney,” she said. “He shouldn’t make my son’s death part of his political agenda. It’s wrong to use these brave young men, who wanted freedom for all, to degrade Obama.”–election.html

    OK, Swami, that’s freaky. I posted the exact same story in the post above at the exact same time! Great minds, indeed!

    Can I get an Amen here,people!

    joanr16 ..That’s one of the biggest resentments I have against Romney. Being a veteran who served in Vietnam I understand what it was like during those years for young men facing the prospect of having to go into an unpopular and misbegotten war. Everybody I knew at the time who faced that prospect took whatever measures to avoid get drawn into that conflict and there was no shame in that. Some went to college, some to Canada,some joined reserve units, some got deferments, and some went to jail. They did what they had to do. But what boils me is when someone who avoided service for honorable reasons at that time tries to cash in on the sacrifices of those who did serve.
    I don’t condemn Bush, Cheney,Romney or any man who avoided service during those years, but I do condemn Romney for using the service of others to imply a bond to his country that he wasn’t willing to form of his own when given the opportunity.. I respect Cheney for his honesty in saying he had other priorities rather than slobbering all over veterans with deceits like Romney does.
    If you beat the a man and say it, Romney..That’s the difference.
