You can't read lips, Cheryl?
Oh, Brad, I'm sure she can. She's just being modest. Anyway, I'd appreciate a transcript also; I don't get video.

If the activist bloggers aren't a problem, then they aren't making enough noise, or stirring up the enough people, or bringing forward enough examples of corruptness of the current administration. So I say, let the activist bloggers increase and multiply and become ten times the problem they are now for the right-wing nitwits!
Wow. Somebody freakin' gets it!
I've said it before, and I'll say it again. They KNEW this guy's background. He was set up.

I love the right's "tempest in a teaspoon" response. Its the White House's VETTING process that's the problem. Just like with Bernie Kerik. Shit, I knew Kerik was bad news before he was made the national headlines. They must really think we're too stupid to check up on this stuff.
Are you gonna believe the White House or your lying eyes?????

Fox Network likes activist RIGHT-WING bloggers. They just don't like us.
When I was a kid there was something called Radio Free Europe. It sent broadcast signals behind the Iron Curtain to neuter Soviet propaganda against the West.
Now the world's greatest propaganda machine is the Bush White House, in combination with Fox, Limbaugh, Coulter, etc. Maybe we should call this site "Radio Free Bloggerville."

Has anyone let Catherine Crier know that she's been mentioned on the Brad Blog? That's becoming quite an honor you know

You know, that's about the only thing I can't do!
Welcome all newcomers to our community!
The definition of tempest in a teapot to the right wingnuts is an accurate news item that shows who they really are.

Just went over to the CourtTV website to drop a line appreciation. Strangely, the politics discussion board was shutdown at 6:17 last night.

Excuse a limey's ignorance, but who was that dickhead in the studio with her?
Tempest in a teaspoon?
Does he really think that we believe if the reverse had happened to Clinton that the right would have kept quiet?
And yet by his own admission, 'ho boy shouldn't have been there. And when she pointed out that his site was financed by a right wing group, didn't he try and change the subject, like reeeeal fast?
These people really do think that denial is de biggest river in Egypt, don't they?
Let's keep outing the hypocrisy, I think we're getting to them now.
Keep the faith siblings.

I saw that interview with Catherine Crier and SHE GETS IT. Do you know why?
Because her job is to analyze CRIME!!! She knows a crime when she sees it.
We should ALL send an email to her segment producer and/or to Court TV supporting her and demanding more! ---> firstname.lastname@example.org
Just a give her a quick "way to go" or something. Every little bit helps, friends!

You should be able to locate a transcript on the Court TV site. Got some headphones? Here is your answer about what happened to the Court TV forums. It wasn't necessarily due to the Gannon thing, but it obviously has something to do with the factionalization of America. I never engage in dialogue with them anymore. It's a complete waste of time.

I appreciated the fact that she wouldn't allow the right wing commenter's repeated attempts to reframe and minimize the situation.
She should be recognized for this and made aware that it was noticed, and that we expect the same in the future.
Thank you C.C.

These Cons are so full of bull. There are tons of nut case right wing bloggers crowding the net. The difference is a lot of them try to pass for "legitimate news", like Talon News and their ilk, rather than the talking point shills that they are.
Just for fun, if you want to waste some time and get a good look into the mind of a freeper, go to this site and surf around some of the links. Freepers galore! (Check out the picture of the nut bag on the home page. Yes freeper, the Dems took your vote, that's why Smirky's in office 2 terms. That home skulling is really paying off.)
WARNING! Not for those with weak stomachs!
No matter how bad you THINK it is, it's WORSE!

This is a link to a news poll. I just took it and saw the results....90 percent of the respondants WANT to learn more about Guckert, I mean Gannon.. no, I mean Guckert. This story is growing MSM legs, indeed.

Not sure if anyone has posted this link yet or not, but here goes anyway
Rick #22. Good info. The Guardian UK and the Christian Science Monitor also have articles.
There are links in the Gannon Thread at item #144.
KestrelBrighteyes #23. Thank you.
Their letter is quite comprehensive. They say they intend to diseminate it to the public.
Good. Bet Rove is sweating a bit about now ...

I love it too!
The MSM is probably to the explosion point with frustration. This the kind of story they LOVE, and they have been ordered into silence. We are the kucky ones.
Excuse me while I go get my battering ram!

Excuse me again...."kucky?"...Oh, well.
kucky= 1) the attitude of bloggers in the eyes of wingnuts
kucky = 2) a word that is produced when thinking "lucky" and at the same time giving the finger to the wing nuts without taking the finger off the keyboard and moving it one key to the right

You guys remember that song from the 80's,

The Brad Blog is the rocket launcher in the ideological guerilla war against the tyranny of the fascist administration.

Supersoling #31 - That song gets to me sooo bad.
Ya know, I try to maintain most of the time, but once in awhile I slip into that "rocket launcher" mood too.
Then I go put on "Tool - Swampsong" and clean the guns.
I'm KIDDING, GEEZE - well about the last part anyway *L*
*waving at the thought police* Hey y'all, want some homemade fudge?
Okay, train of thought derailed for a moment, sorry 'bout that.
Has anyone heard back from Catherine Crier?
I must admit, I'm not a court tv fan, and tv here is usually not even on at the time of her show, so I only heard her name in passing until this thread was posted. Is her show usually political? Is it worth making the effort to be inside in front of a tv at 4 PM?

Heads up folks - From Cheryl's link in #36
Daschle aides told Roll Call, "This guy (Gannon) became the dumping ground for opposition research." The connections are so strong that there is an FEC challenge which could be a test case on the limits of the use of the Internet in federal campaigns.
Warning, Danger Brad Robinson!
A sacrificial, gay right wing blogger bringing about Rove's desire to control the blogospere - go on, tell me it couldn't happen.
I dare ya.
I double dare ya.
Or would they only "control" blogs by right wing hypocrite 'ho's?
No, I didn't think so either.
I've said before, Rove IS a smart cookie and is unencumbered by either morals or conscience - a dangerous mixture. We underestimate him at our peril.
Keep the faith sibs.
You need to know that the Gannon thing is said to be going MSM ...
Visit the link in the Gannon thread for the latest ...
Cheryl #36 ... yep ... it is posted on the Gannon thread too ...
READ AND ASSIST ME..
From: MR.EDWARD GODWIN
I am Mr. Edward Godwin the son of late Sir Benha Godwin, the renowned Zimbabwean wine and cattle farmer. I got your contact courtesy of the Information directory. During the war waged against the farmers in Zimbabwe by the supporters and cohorts of President Robert Mugabe to claim allthe white-owned farms in our country, my late father's big farms were among those targeted by the ZANU-PF armed group.
In the course of the revolution in Zimbabwe, the ZANU-PF armed group attacked and invaded my father's farms, burning, destroying and eventually killing him. After my father death last year, I managed to escape to LONDON, because my life was threatened and Zimbabwe was no longer safe for me. I escaped safely into LONDON with my Father's lifetime fortune of US$20M (Twenty Million US Dollars) in cash, bonds, important documents of property title and other valuables as he instructed to do before he died.
The money and valuables were concealed and secured in one Treasure Box and was transported through Diplomatic means. The box is currently safely secured in the vaults of a
private security firm in the United Kingdom.
Presently, I am residing temporarily in LONDON pending the outcome of an appeal filed on my behalf by my lawyer to the British Home Office (Internal Affairs Department) to grant me political asylum. I am in a dilemma on how to move this money safely out of the security Deposit Company for investments.
Moreover, due to the British government stringent monetary policies/regulations and the sensitive and volatile political situation, it would be most dangerous to attempt investments here, as such an attempt could jeopardize my chances.
In recognition of your personal executive powers and the investment opportunities that abound in your country, I solicit for your assistance in moving this money out of the United Kingdom. I will also like to use this money for investments in your country. You will guide all my future investments in your country and it will be operated on a partnership level. You will be getting 20% of the total investment capital moved to your country as your share for your assistance. The balance will be plunged into investment projects.
Please Forward to me your particulars as follows...
1. Beneficiary full name and address
2. Direct Telephone and fax numbers
3. Occupation and position
4. Nationality and Date of birth
5. Marital status
Upon receipt of your indication of interest to go into co-operation with me, we will open up discussions on the best ways to invest in your country.
NOTE: PLEASE SHOULD YOU NOT BE INTERESTED IN THIS
PROJECT, KEEP IT TO YOURSELF AND NEVER REVEAL IT TO ANY OTHER
PERSON/S. Awaiting your soonest response.
MR. EDWARD GODWIN
its preetty sad when we put are babies in handcuffs ,whatsthis wourld coming to. that is child abuse any way you look at it if that was a parent they would be arrested.
