The War on Terror is Over And No One Told Me?

Rep. Lamar Smith: ‘The greatest threat to America is a liberal media bias.’
SMITH: Let me just say — this is going to sound radical, I don’t mean for it to be radical — but to me, the greatest threat to America is not necessarily a recession or even another terrorist attack. The greatest threat to America is a liberal media bias. …

As evidenced, of course, by the fact that Rep. Smith gets to appear on a national network that blasts the right wing party line 24/7 and announce the formation of his "Media Fairness Caucus,"

Hey. remember Dick Cheney? Remember Newt Gingrich? Remember Rush Limbaugh, Ann Coulter, Bill O'Reilly, Joe Scarborough, Glenn "Weepy" Beck, Michael Steele, Michelle Malkin, Lindsey Graham, Tom Tancredo, James Inhofe, Jeff Sessions, Mitch McConnell, etc. etc.? You never ever see them on TV or hear them quoted any more. Must be the liberals keeping them from speaking out. And if you give them the slightest chance they'll be on every talk show, news show, Op-ed page and blog to tell you how the liberal press is silencing them.

I ask everyone in the House Republican Caucus completely out of their fucking minds?

This has been another edition of "Short Answers to Stupid Questions."

There was a great line in a short story I read a while back:

"It was mostly [Group X] shouting from the rooftops that they were afraid to speak above a whisper."

Not identifying the story or context because I didn't really agree with it there, but it sure as hell seems applicable here and now.

Ever since you questioned by sanity (not the first time, I might add) for letting Joe Scarborough harsh my morning's meditation, I've switched to CNN, which is a bit less insane. A bit.

This morning I caught David Frum and Susan Molinari being asked tough questions about Dick Cheney. The controversey seemed to be, is Dick Cheney brave and forthright or forthright and brave?

Fortnately, the two of them found a happy middle ground.
