Of course I read it. That's how I know what you do. It turns you into a lying partisan, who will use any device to destroy an opponent, however unfair.

Chalk the shooting at the liberal church in Tennessee to the bombastic likes of Limbaugh, who turns "Lib-er-als" into something evil, to be destroyed.

Tell me that the people who are tearing this country apart with that kind of partisanship love their country. They love their power. Being a "dittohead" is almost like being part of a cult.

You are correct, kind sir. I watched it.
And no, the person who shot up the church hated liberals.

I am finished. Nothing to be learned from you.

Is it really 'Liberal' bias, or just bias towards what they think provides the more compelling story? If the complaint is that style and a consistent Narrative are obscuring more critical analysis, perhaps the distinction doesn't make much difference. But I don't think it's really a conscious attempt to push a particular poltical agenda, rather the tendency of the media to stoke up a story that they can not just report upon but help create. Ask liberal John Kerry whether he found that tendency helpful four years ago.

Wow, now I've hear it all. Obama is so scary to your ilk you will accused him of everything. What's next, murdering innocent puppies? Your paranoid behavior just mimic the likes of McCain whose negative ads just go to show everyone how desperate he's become.
Just because Obama cares about the environment; the effect drilling will have on countless animals and marine life along our coasts, he supporting the Saudis. LOL, who is best pals with the Saudi Royals??? Who?? Guess what, your buddy Bush, that's who.

Our government would be better served looking for ALTERNATE sources of energy.

Unfortunately there are so many stupid people in this country just like yourself. Unfortunate.

It's a sad, politics as usual day, here in America.

Haha, that's really funny. Do you have ANY idea how much money our government vis a vis Bush's will, has given the Saudi Government? Oh my god, how ignorant can you really be?

I surprised when any politician puts a foot in their mouth due to the fact that their heads are usually up their rear ends.
Look who we get to vote for: dumb & dumber.

How is it possible?
How could a man with the farthest-left voting record in the U.S. Senate be on the brink of becoming the next President of the United States?
And how could he vow to raise taxes and increase government spending exponentially at a time of grave economic crisis...
And how could he promise unilateral retreat from the War on Terror and unconditional talks with foreign despots...
And who has had long-standing, close relationships with a former terrorist, a hate-spewing racist minister, and the corrupt operators of Chicago machine politics?
The liberal media have one answer to the question: Barack Hussein Obama has been "delivered to us" (in the words of MSNBC's Chris Matthews) as a kind of political savior who will end our national divisions, bind up our historical wounds, and infuse us with "hope" by delivering "change."
But then there is the real answer. Thanks to the very same liberal media, few Americans have the slightest idea who Barack Obama really is, what he really stands for... or how he actually got where he is today.
Are you a joke or something?

Mr. Kass, time to go for the big time and see how crooked Chicago politics have infested the Obama team:

"Valerie B. Jarrett

The Habitat Company President and CEO (2007-)
The Habitat Company EVP (1995-2007)

In 1987, Mr. Levin and The Habitat Company were appointed Receiver of the Chicago Housing Authority Scattered Site housing development program by the U.S. District Court in Chicago. In that capacity, Habitat oversees the citywide public housing Revitalization Program.

A veteran of Chicago politics, Jarrett got her start working for Harold Washington, the city's first black mayor. Her grandfather ran the Chicago Housing Authority in the 1940s.

Jarrett, an African American, raised her Olympic profile this year when she addressed black aldermen who complained that the local Olympic organizing committee appeared to be a "white man's party club.''

Valerie Jarrett has served as treasurer of Barack Obama's leadership political action committee (PAC), the Hopefund.

When it came time for Obama's US Senate campaign, Valerie Jarrett became the campaign finance chairman and worked hand and hand with fellow finance committee members, Rita and Tony Rezko, and his former boss at the law firm, Allison Davis, in fundraising endeavors.

Jarrett is now the CEO of Habitat Co, a real estate development and management firm which manages the housing program for the Chicago Housing Authority, the entity mandated to administer public housing, and she serves as an unpaid advisor to Obama's Presidential campaign. "
