Miscellaneous 42 (Murkowski, Olbermann, Hannity)
1) Looking for one Republican who isn't afraid of Sarah Palin? You needn't look any further than Mrs. Palin's own back-yard. Yeah, that's right, folks, I'm talking about Lisa Murkowski. According to the current (and, yes, I'll say it, future) Senator, "I just do not think that she (Mrs. Palin) has those leadership qualities, that intellectual curiosity that allows for building good and great policies.....I want somebody that goes to bed at night and wakes up in the morning thinking about how we're going to deal with our national security issues, how we're going to deal with our economy, how we're going to deal with providing better education or peace in the Middle East."...Ouch, huh? Oh and, yes, here's to hoping that this is just the beginning. I mean, seriously here, don't the Democrats deserve a Republican that does to fellow Republicans what Senator Lieberman has been doing to them? It's only frigging fair, no?............2) Edward R. Murrow covered the London blitzkrieg in 1940 - out on those very same London city streets, day after day after day. What, folks, has Mr. Olbermann ever covered (other than his ass, I'm saying)? I mean, seriously here, has he ever even been out of the studio?...That, me-buckos, is at least one major distinction between these two news "reporters".............3) And then, of course, there's also Mr. Hannity. I mean, have you seen this guy lately? He's suddenly become this strongly principled libertarian dude. "How dare those miserable TSA workers take to violating our privacy (I'm paraphrasing here)." It's like, where in the hell did this come from? I certainly don't remember him being concerned about civil liberties during the Bush administration; warrantless wire-taps, etc.....Oh well, so much for this mamby-pamb/blankety blank being a principled conservative.
