The Banty Rooster has a heartwarming e-mail relating an encounter between Donald Rumsfeld and a wounded soldier in Iraq today.
Whatever happened to the breathless coverage of important news stories like the tons of missing ammo in Iraq? George Bush’s AWOL escapades and the documents that proved it? Karl Rove’s leaking of an undercover CIA operative’s name for political advantage? The Bush Administration’s reckless indifference to Richard Clarke’s prescient warnings about the imminent danger of a 9/11 attack? Bush’s nefarious backroom conspiracies in cahoots with the Saudi royal family and the bin Ladens?
Golly, I thought these were all Critically Important Stories™ that the public needed to know about in every detail. Suddenly, after November 2nd, things have gone quiet. I wonder why.
Why does it take an investigative reporter’s questions to spur the FBI to investigate 100 missing propane cylinders?
Don’t get so exercised about President Bush’s supposed loss of 380 tons of explosives in Iraq. It’s not what you think.
UPDATE: I told you so. Nice try, liberal media.
UPDATE 2: And yet more.
UPDATE 3: And still more.
UPDATE 4: More on the 3rd Infantry Division.
UPDATE 5: This one’s for you, Chet.
UPDATE 6: Russian involvement before the war.
UPDATE 7: Power Line delivers the coup de grâce.
Captain’s Quarters sounds off on the Kerry/Edwards web site’s difficulties with press releases that praise Bush/Cheney. Whoever wrote the release in question did such a bad job that it came across as a list of Bush/Cheney achievements. It disappeared for awhile this weekend, reappeared, and disappeared again.
We saw it days ago, fellas. Once you post something on a prominent web site, you can count on someone archiving a copy. Deleting it now is just silly, and makes your press staff look even more stupid than before. You can’t un-ring the bell, Senators.
The blogosphere’s now going to gnaw on this latest of your self-inflicted wounds. Congratulations.
