I found this article by Brian Montopoli of CBS News absolutely hilarious…

Sarah Palin’s bus tour treats reporters like paparazzi

Sarah Palin and her advisers are refusing to tell members of the media where she is going on her current bus tour – and the former Alaska governor seems to be enjoying the cat and mouse game that’s resulted.

“I don’t think I owe anything to the mainstream media … I want them to have to do a little bit of work on a tour like this, and that would include not necessarily telling them beforehand where every stop’s going to be,” she told fellow Fox News employee Greta Van Susteren in an interview from the bus…

Since Palin and her team won’t share where the potential candidate is headed, reporters and producers have little choice but to simply stay close to Palin’s bus. This has resulted in scenes of the Palin bus tooling down the highway followed by a caravan of 10 or 15 vehicles all trying to make sure they don’t lose sight of the Palin bus.

It adds up to a dangerous situation, says CBS News Producer Ryan Corsaro.

“I just hope to God that one of these young producers with a camera whose bosses are making them follow Sarah Palin as a potential Republican candidate don’t get in a car crash, because this is dangerous,” he said.

Corsaro asked a member of Palin’s team if he thought it was dangerous to have reporters forced to chase her from stop to stop. “You’re the ones that are trailing us,” he replied.


The solution to your problem, Mr. Montopoli, is painfully obvious and ridiculously simple. Stop following her around. You all are chasing after her as if she were a bitch in heat and you are a bunch of horny mutts. Think about it. You are pursuing a woman with no credentials or credibility whatsoever who will never, ever be anything more than she is right now. She served a term as mayor of tiny Wasilla, Alaska and could not even finish a term as governor of tiny Alaska – a state whose entire population is less than the town in which I live. She knows nothing about national, let alone international, affairs. What she says means nothing to anybody except apparently you and the ignorant extreme right wing lemmings who worship her. Just stop following her. Stop giving her the attention she craves. Just stop.

We don’t care. She isn’t news. What she says or does is not news. We do not need to know what she had for breakfast this morning or how many times she peed today. Stop wasting your time and ours. Move on to something or somebody that actually matters.

Dang it. That dang “left-wing media” has been picking on our little Sarah again. When is it going to stop?

Are they really picking on Sarah Palin or are they just doing their job and letting us know what a shallow candidate she really is? That is the question and I’m sure you have an opinion. Love to hear it!

When is the woman behind the curtain going to reveal her true self?

Right wing Republicans do a lot of complaining about the so-called “liberal media.” An Associated Press writer by the name of Hope Yen laid that myth to rest for good today. Ladies and gentlemen, your Liberal Media…

Kerry says McCain lacks judgment to be president

WASHINGTON (AP) – John Kerry says Republican John McCain doesn’t have the judgment to be president.

If that’s the case, then it’s probably a good thing McCain rejected overtures from Kerry, the Democratic presidential nominee in 2004, to form a bipartisan ticket and run with Kerry as his candidate for vice president.[..]

Violence in Iraq has dropped to its lowest level in more than four years as a result of the 2007 buildup of forces.

“We’re winning because John McCain understood Iraq better than anybody else,” Graham said. “The surge has worked. The political, economic and military progress in Iraq is undeniable.”

Not too long ago, Kerry might have described McCain, a fellow Vietnam veteran and former prisoner of war, as a bipartisan ally who could provide guidance on national security issues.

McCain came to Kerry’s aid in March 2004 after Bush and his campaign tried to paint the Democrat as weak on defense. He rejected the suggestion in broadcast interviews and chided both parties for waging such a “bitter and partisan” campaign.

The two senators also discussed the vice presidency several times before McCain finally rejected Kerry’s overtures to form a bipartisan ticket. Kerry ultimately selected then-Sen. John Edwards, D-N.C., to join the ticket.

For the record, Kerry is not among those being mentioned as possible running mates for McCain.

That was just the beginning and ending of Ms. Yen’s article. I’ll have to confess that I am not too sure it wasn’t written by the RNC and she is just passing it off as her own.

Look for a lot of this kind of nonsense in the coming months. Johnny McCain pretty well has the national media in his back pocket. Sure, the wingers will continue to complain; it’s what they do best. But their complaints will have no merit. The liberal media, as much as we may have loved it and appreciated its accuracy and truthfulness, is officially dead.

Oh, and the McCains went to church today. There is something about this photo (besides the ever-present sunglasses… does the McCain family own stock in a company that makes them?) that bothers me. Can’t quite put my finger on it…
