Asking whether there is a liberal or conservative bias to the mainstream media is a little like asking whether al-Qaida uses too much oil in their hummus. The problem with al-Qaida is that they're trying to kill us.
Holy crap, someone finally admitted it! Al-Qaida wants us dead! Other than that, any analogy or point attempting to be made, isn't. And the essay goes South from there. Rambling, non-sensical, lacking any kind of a point, and existing just to insult anyone on the right, it's Franken to a "T". This is the man who, when faced with a well written book by Rush Limbaugh, wrote a book titled "Rush is a Big Fat Idiot". Yay, bravo, yet another piece of drivel lacking any kind of coherant though, logic, or argument, existing solely to insult Franken's intellectual superior. This seems to be all Franken can do. He flopped in showbusiness, he failed at comedy, and now he simply hurls incoherant insults at his betters. His new book, "I'm a lying suckweasle" or something like that, simply shows that Franken STILL isn't funny, STILL lacks any kind of coherant argument, and STILL doesn't prove a thing, except that Al Franken knows what a lie is. I'm not suprised, since Franken wouldn't know the truth if he snorted it up his nose along with whatever drug he seems to be snorting at the present time.
What really gets to me is that the moonbats here in Seattle lap it up. They're good little drones, nodding their heads, going "Yes, yes, of course.", making the UW campus look like Edgar Bobblehead Night at Safeco Field. Plastic, empty, and without thought, that describes Franken and his bobbleheads. Here's a tip to Franken: When you turn on Bill O'Riley with both guns, and he proceeds to blow you out of the water, you're done. Hell, you never WERE! I've seen better writing from a 3rd grader with Turette's Syndrome.
Courtesy of SpicedSass comes a naval officer's account of dealing with the New York (Jayson Blair? Don't know the name.) Times.
Mr. Beidler wrote back, "I will never again allow a reporter from The New York Times to interview me or a member of my family. There will be no opportunity for 'another encounter' and no chance for your paper to rise above the reputation you've established in my eyes." The NYT was exposed as a liberal rag that lies, the BBC is exposed as a liberal rag that lies... What liberal media? Please. If you actually think that there's no liberal bias in the media, you should be sitting in the Franken Bobblehead section.
Random Nuclear Strikes has a picture of Salma Hayek up. Why? Why not? I'm sorry, but this is a woman who can make water boil at 100 yards just by her very presence. There are few women in this world that would make me stop, stare and drool. Salma is one of them. Any hetrosexual American male who can look at her and not feel anything needs to be checked for a pulse. And my gay (female) co-worker goes ga-ga over her too, so I know it's not just me.
The Grouchy Old Cripple (in Atlanta!) was feeling rather grouchy over the weekend. Or at least, that's what I gather from his magnificent fisking of an op-ed by ex-senator Max Cleland. If there are any Donks reading this, let me give you a hint. When we can go over a piece, written by a Democrat, and refute it line by line, we have no choice but to think either A) you're an idiot, B) you're corrupt, or C) you're flat-out, treason-edging anti-American. In order to be nice, we just go with A. The GOC also has a little joke, destined to piss off our liberal friends: "Why does Jimmy always lay on the bottom when having sex? Because all he knows how to do is fuck up."
Yep. Sums it up rather nicely.
