Look! Up in the sky! It's a bird! It's a plane! No, it's HILLARY! And her broomstick is spelling out SURRENDER, REPUBLICANS!!
Stop reading the MSM and ignore their agenda-driven polls.Maybe Murdoch is being straight forward, but I smell protection. His media empire has been labeled by the Left as favoring the Right, so maybe this gesture is a pre-emptive strike to protect it. Of course, Bill Gates tried this, too, and the Clinton administration practically eviscerated Microsoft.
Murdoch Defends Plan to Host Hillary Fundraiser: It will be pretty modest support, Murdoch said. It's giving the opportunity to people in our office who want to join us at a breakfast.We think that she's been effective on state issues and local issues here in a New York. She's been an effective and good senator. And if people want to come to breakfast for $1,000, they're welcome. It's no big deal. It's not a million-dollar raising. Its got nothing to do with anything other than her Senate re-election.
8 Which prompted a delusional Richard Cohen to ask Who Are You, Hillary?: But politics is not just about money -- not quite yet, anyway [there's the delusional part] -- if only because ideology and principles are not yet "products." That being the case (I hope), then Hillary Clinton's vast lead in fundraising -- she now has more than $20 million in the bank -- will be offset by growing questions about her principles and ideology. In other words, who is this woman who wants to be the next president of the United States? Is she the wife of Bill Clinton, who we were once led to believe was more liberal than he was, or is she actually far more conservative? The answer, at the moment, is something I cannot provide.
8 Dated 7/30/05*; Ickes: Look at Hillary's Record: "It's much more important to look at what she does and how she votes, and not that she has associated herself with the DLC," Harold Ickes told the Washington Times on Friday*. Ickes reminded that Bill Clinton also came under fire from party liberals for his more centrist rhetoric. But they stuck with him because "his record in totality was extraordinarily progressive." h/t Holy Coast
8 Cindy Adams posited some interesting observations today: REMEMBER when Clinton/Gore ran the U.S.A.? Now - maybe - both Clinton and Gore could be would be should be running for president. If Gore looks like a lock and if H. Clinton looks like she won't get the nod, could it be a Gore/Clinton ticket? If she doesn't think she'll make it, if she doesn't want to come home empty-handed, if she thinks he'd take her, if either thinks the other will be a help . . . . . . . . .
Algore is certainly rich enough.
And then she hilariously shows how All Blame Leads To Bush: It's all George Bush's fault. If Bush hadn't zapped Dan Rather's report on his National Guard duty, Dan wouldn't be off CBS News. If Dan weren't off CBS News, Katie Couric wouldn't be off "Today." If Katie weren't off "Today," Meredith Vieira wouldn't be off "The View." If Meredith weren't off "The View," Rosie O'Donnell wouldn't be going on it and Star Jones might not be job hunting.
In other political news ...
8 AJ Strata reports Another Day, Another National Security Leak: USA Today just tipped off the terrorist how to avoid detection and put the people in Qwest's areas in danger because now it is known those areas have the least protection and should be targeted! What are these people THINKING! Someone needs to go to jail.
8 Mac Ranger believes it will be a Bang of a Summer: [Y]ours truly has told you all along - the tide is about to shift. ... Oh, and more than a little legal issues for a couple of Democratic members of Government.
8 Tony Is Starting to Have an Impact: It's good to see the White House aggressively defending itself and correcting erroneous information from the press.
8 PATAKI IS THE PITS WITH STATE VOTERS: Even 55 percent of Republican voters disapprove of his job performance, compared with 43 percent who give him thumbs-up. ... Overall, 61 percent of New Yorkers say they believe the state is headed in the wrong direction.
8 And for all you Al Jolson fans, Pat Kennedy went Jacko as young pol: Wham-a-lot" Congressman Patrick Kennedy may be glad he has beat it to Minnesota's Mayo Clinic now that party pictures have surfaced showing him masquerading as Michael Jackson.
........... And now, a little something to make you go awwwwwwww!
