Something To Set Me Off On A Friday Evening

An Argh! inducing excerpt from this article:

.... Shortly before the debate began, Newsweek national editor Jon Meacham suggested on MSNBC that journalists are tired of Bush being in the lead, and so will try to narrow the race. Meacham foresaw "the possibility that President Bush has peaked about a month too early. Because we all need a narrative to change." Chris Matthews asked: "Is that your prediction?" Meacham replied: "I think it's possible that we're gonna be sitting around saying, 'Well you know Kerry really surprised us.' Because in a way the imperative is to change the story."

But remember, journalists aren't in favor of changing the story because it makes good copy. They're in favor of changing it because it gives their candidate a better chance of winning.

From the years Kerry hasn't learned from, "containment" as a policy is intellectually constipated.
Apologies to Gilbert & Sullivan:
Kerry is confusionary - consumed by global summitology,
he's alienated alliances who support us militarily
and denigrated successes in all our foreign policy,
in pursuit of popularity (and testological validity),
while seeking Presidentiation and political supremacy.

I don't ever watch Chris Mathews anymore. Not since he did that number on Michelle Malkin. He is a prime example of a Democratic pol who through liberal connections got a TV program. He and the other liberal media types will keep selling to try and create a close race. If they can help carry Kerry home, so much the better, as they see it.

Did anyone notice, the day after the Debate Kerry "won", the Dow was up 112 points? Earlier in the year when Kerry was ahead in most polls, the Dow was slumping. We have to hang-on for 3 1/2 more weeks. Don't allow your friends and neighbors to be sold by the liberal TV people on Kerry. They are now telling us that he's not as bad as the Republican Convention presented. Yes, he is, and don't let anyone forget it.

I absolutely loved Kerry's phrase " Passes the test, the global test ".....What a buffoon! I.E. he will ask the U.N.'s permission before we do anything. Ummmm.....lets just think about that. Sickening, isn't it? Should Senator Flip-Flop become President Flip-Flop we are in for a world of hurt....can we start impeachment proceedings if he wins?????

Not surprising. It's kind of like Chris Matthews wanting 'parity' when he's getting his tush spanked in a losing argument. Liberal are seething that President Bush is still ahead and will do or create any story to destroy that lead.

Newsweek is already proclaiming that President Bush's lead has evaporated. From a poll focused solidly on the left coast. Using 357 Republicans. 364 Democrats and 279 Undecideds... What the heck?

I guess that's called Responsible Journalism.

Ever since Watergate, the press has wanted to take another President down... one way or another. It's just a bit moreso when the President is Republican.

The new Newsweek poll shows a six percent shift from Bush to Kerry.

It is sheer coincidence that there was a six percent shift from numbers of Repubs polled to Dems polled.

Of course it's a coincidence. Surely a little thing like that wouldn't make a difference. [/sarcasm]
