1) I'm pretty sure that Bill O'Reilly was full of garbage last night. When Alan Colmes pointed out (correctly so, in my opinion) to him that the right didn't seem to care very much when Valerie Plame's identity got leaked by the Bush administration, O'Reilly countered this by saying that it did in fact bother him....Hm. I mean, I'll admit that I haven't seen every single minute of every single show, but I do know FOR A FACT that I personally have never seen Mr. O'Reilly express one iota of outrage over this whole blowing of Valerie Plame's cover....Now, if anybody out there has any footage of this, I'd be more than happy to check it out....And, yes, if need be, I will in fact stand corrected.............2) I'm telling you, if there's anybody out there who is more out of touch than Newt Gingrich, I FEEL SORRY FOR THEM. I do. This guy - he goes on "Hannity" tonight and says that there really isn't anything of an emergency nature that this lame-duck session of Congress needs to address and that, yes, it would in fact be a much better thing for the country if they just adjourned and went home. Yeah, huh? I mean, what here - we got close two million people who's unemployment insurance is about to run out and THAT'S NOT AN EMERGENCY? Talk about an SOB.............3) Now, this isn't to say that the Republicans don't make a good point in saying that the extension of these benefits should in fact be paid for. They probably SHOULD be paid for/off-set. But for this increasingly loathsome Gingrich character to so cavalierly say that there "aren't any emergencies out there" - that is really, really low.
