This evening while flipping through channels trying to avoid the Republican National Convention, I ended up pausing on the Comcast channel covering said convention. I just so happened to hear some nasty remarks about...
Supposedly we are unprofessional and have no journalistic integrity. We are blamed for the disparaging rumors about Sarah Palin. This woman commenting during a montage of the camera sweeping over the convention as the Republicans dance to "Celebration' (ok, what f-ing decade is this and the number of people doing the 'white man's overbite' dance was SCARY) basically said we have no right to write about what we do. I really wish I could tell you who she was but I was so sick of listening to the drivel that I had to change the channel. It's now 10pm and I am so angry I can't sleep. If I do find out who it was, I will pass it on to you.
This is the party that could possibly be in charge for another 4 years? How is this possible? Obviously this person thinks that a select group of people should be sanctioned to report the news...
...oh wait, isn't that just like
I am not only angry now, I am scared.
Oh, my new battle cry...
Sarah dear, I will leave your 'family values' and family alone in my personal opinions as soon as you decide to leave my personal body alone and out of your politics!
BTW, if you really believe that God spoke to 'our leaders' and told them to invade Iraq because it's God's will and that we are doing God's will by staying there and also drilling in the Alaskan Preserve (huh?)...you might want to check your meds. You might also want to consult our Constitution and the stuff about the separation of church and state. It was a good idea then, and it still is. Thomas Jefferson is rolling over in his grave right now. I don't even think that my Dad would vote for them now, and he was a tad prejudiced (my Dad, I am allowed to say it).
