It was AFER Gonzales testified. (I read it earlier.)

Forget shooting fish in a barrel.

Just drain the damn barrel.


Can't wait to see what other smoking gun these geniuses dig up.





Or as Jay Rosen would say, FDL is in the league of big journalism.

Jeff Dobbs

Ahhh sh*t, time for the stretched analogy.

Mrs hit and run is out of town. I took my son to soccer practice. Our neighbor watched our daughter in the meantime. After soccer practice, we went to get my daughter. Hung out with the neighbor for a little bit to let the kids wind down.

The neighbor has a dog. Oh crap, what kind of dog? Some kind of schizo, hyper, not quite greyhound type of dog, but I don't know exactly what.

The dog, now that it is spring, is in the process of digging up old toys, and moving them to new locations. Tonite we got to witness her diggin up some stuffed bear, taking it in her mouth and proudly prancing around the yard, showing off her "prize possession", before sneaking off to find a new secret location to hide it.

The kids were completely taken with this bear. It was like a magic trick--the dog found a bear in the dirt?!!?!?!?!

We adults, kinda just sat there and said, "bury it already, it's moldy and trashy and of no use to anybody but your own canine pride".

I don't know. I think that dog may be a dem operative.


It was a firedoglake dog. Silly.

Jeff Dobbs


What's worse than a firedog trying to hump your leg?


Don't even go there, wiseass.

You're really not even supposed to pray that your opponents could be this stupid.


Everyone knows Rove tampers with the dates, if he forgets to delete the emails.



Sorry gang. Was working all day and could not resist this gem I found through macsmind. Sorry if someone already posted it.

If you haven't seen it you should read Jason Whitlock's column on Imus at the KansasCity.com.

Here is an excerpt:

Thank you, Don Imus. You’ve given us (black people) an excuse to avoid our real problem.

You’ve given Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson another opportunity to pretend that the old fight, which is now the safe and lucrative fight, is still the most important fight in our push for true economic and social equality.

You’ve given Vivian Stringer and Rutgers the chance to hold a nationally televised recruiting celebration expertly disguised as a news conference to respond to your poor attempt at humor.

Thank you, Don Imus. You extended Black History Month to April, and we can once again wallow in victimhood, protest like it’s 1965 and delude ourselves into believing that fixing your hatred is more necessary than eradicating our self-hatred.

The bigots win again.


I ain’t saying Jesse, Al and Vivian are gold-diggas, but they don’t have the heart to mount a legitimate campaign against the real black-folk killas.

It is us. At this time, we are our own worst enemies. We have allowed our youths to buy into a culture (hip hop) that has been perverted, corrupted and overtaken by prison culture. The music, attitude and behavior expressed in this culture is anti-black, anti-education, demeaning, self-destructive, pro-drug dealing and violent.

Rather than confront this heinous enemy from within, we sit back and wait for someone like Imus to have a slip of the tongue and make the mistake of repeating the things we say about ourselves.

It’s embarrassing. Dave Chappelle was offered $50 million to make racially insensitive jokes about black and white people on TV. He was hailed as a genius. Black comedians routinely crack jokes about white and black people, and we all laugh out loud.

Read the whole thing.


What strikes me about this poor lady from Phoenix is that despite being terribly afflicted with BDS, her fondest hope is that someone will be caught in some process violation.

It is obviously clear to her that there is no 'there' there.

Smoking Gun Or Smoking Dope?

If I'm being asked to choose between the two, I'm not going to pretend there's an easy answer to that question.

Lew Clark

We had tornadoes hit here tonight! Just had to share that, because nothing interesting hardly ever happens to me.

This is easy. I don't want no stinkin' smokin' gun.

A fairly complete time line of the Imus affair played out.

Imus Time line and details


A Liberal Conflagration Over Imus

A really good piece by Rich Lowry. He rips those out to earn their "media-elite merit badge" by going on Imus.

Lowry sure can write. I consider this a companion piece to the Whitlock article cited by Specter above at 12:01.


Jason Whitlock was featured in a video clip over at Hot Air that is worth the look

Dissin Sharpton and Jackson


Thoughts to remember

Imus already had miffed of the Hillary thingy

He made Chucky Schumer look like not so cool since he had not visited Walter Reid Hospital during the whole Iraq war

So he was putting it out there to be stepped on during the night of the long knives by dissing both of them.

Two NY Senators down with no payback, not likely.


Republicans just don't know how to play the Democrats game.

What they should have done is find every negative article on Schumer from his entire carrerr. Every potential unethical act, everytime he was involved in a politcial hiring/firing. The start e-mailing those articles back and foth to each other with SUBJ: lines like:

1. Firing AGs, good thing we never did this, see attched.

2. Good thing we were never this unethical sh-t like Schumer, see attched.

3. Wow, we treat fired AGs better then Schumer treats babies, see attached.


Then you print them all out and provide them to the committe per their request and to the media...open government/nothing to hise you know.


This U.S. Attorney Scandal has introduced me to the 'document dump' (DD). How do these DD's work? Who culls through the documents? Who actually releases them? What criteria are employed to screen or filter the material? Who decides when to release the documents?, etc. Since this administration seems to be engaged in tactics to prevent the full story from being told, can we assume that what isn't released is even more incriminating than the materials that have been dumped? Can any of the readers explain a bit more about the people, processes, and procedures involved in these DD's?


The rule is whenever having produced all the relevant materials to the Dems and they can find no evidence whatsoever of wrongdoing, they will claim that something significant is missing or has been withheld or wrongfully destroyed and the left will run on that until even that idiocy runs ou of steam and some other source of manufactured outrage is invented. (Of course, that is the summary version of the matter.)


We do need another one of those Imus stories to pop up next week to allow this idiotic US Attorney firings story run out of its remaining steam.

Funny how the WH adm wanted to accelerate Gonzales' hearing up by one week because they felt it would harm Gonzales more. If this story becomes non-existent, then they need to learn to allow the PR push it out of non-existence.


Are document dumps based on rules of retention?


Did you see how Diane Sawyer reacted to Larry Elder? Are we going to see more reporters reacting to nasty comments because of the Imus firings?
