Jane, I think this debate will be better than the others. It is great for the Reps that Chrissy will moderate.

First, Some Questions For Matthews

By INVESTOR'S BUSINESS DAILY |

Media: For unknown reasons, Republican candidates have agreed to a second debate moderated by a hard-core Democrat who thinks President Bush is a criminal. This time it is they who should really play hardball.

On Tuesday night, 2008 GOP presidential wannabes submit to a second debate moderated by leftist media icon Chris Matthews. We wonder why, because at the first Matthews-moderated debate at the Reagan library in May they were insulted with such Oprah-esque questions as, "What do you dislike most about America?" The correct answer should have been, "Biased reporters asking stupid questions."
Matthews poses with another well-known Democrat at a government employee union function in June.

Matthews poses with another well-known Democrat at a government employee union function in June.

Matthews has provided Republicans with a golden opportunity to confront that bias as evidenced by his recent despicable remarks and the unrelenting campaign of hostility and character assassination waged by NBC and its affiliated networks.

They should ask what Matthews, who has worked for four Democratic politicians, including President Carter, disliked so much about America when he wrote Carter's infamous 1979 "malaise" speech in which the American people were blamed for a collapsing economy and Soviet expansionism.

If he questions the GOP candidates on Iraq, they should ask what he thought about Carter watching as the Soviets invaded Afghanistan. They could also ask him what words of advice he whispered in Carter's ear as our hostages twisted in the wind for 444 days as Carter's foreign policy crashed and burned in the Iranian desert.

If he asks about the war on terror, they should reply: "Chris, do you agree that the war on terror and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan might not have been necessary, and that 9/11 might never have occurred, had your boss not ushered in the world's first Islamofascist dictatorship and a state sponsor of terror by undercutting our ally, the Shah of Iran?"

As for what Bush intends to do about Iran, we suggest: "Chris, do you blame the existence of a regime that daily provides the weapons to kill American troops in Iraq and threatens nuclear holocaust on the naive policies of the Carter administration you served?"

While they're at it, they should ask Matthews if he agrees with colleague Keith Olbermann's description of President Bush as "a president who lied us into war, and in so doing, needlessly killed 3,584 of our family and friends and neighbors" and who "has freed from the prospect of prison the only man (Scooter Libby) ever to come to trial for one of the component felonies in what may the greatest crime of this young century."

We know the answer, but ask the question anyway. And ask Matthews if he can back up his recent statement to colleagues on the occasion of the 10th anniversary of his "Hardball" show that the Bush administration has "finally been caught in their criminality?"

They should ask him why he and his colleague think Libby belongs in prison for misremembering conversations with reporters about an alleged crime for which no one was charged, but Sandy Berger, who stuffed secret documents stolen from the National Archives in his pants, does not.

Can you, Chris Matthews, back up the charges that the Bush administration has been trying to silence you? Can you explain and prove your suggestion that we should put Exxon and Mobil signs over Arlington National Cemetery because this is a war for oil?

Matthews' parting shot was at Vice President Cheney: "God help us if we had Dick Cheney during the Cuban Missile crisis. We'd all be under a parking lot." Well, if Cheney had been there, there might not have been a Cuban missile crisis, only a liberated Cuba. And the parking lot would be next to the newest Havana Wal-Mart.

That serious Republican candidates would submit meekly to questions by this card-carrying member of the lunatic fringe without asking a few pointed questions of their own is an embarrassment. After all, if they can't stand up to Chris Matthews, how can we expect them to stand up to Mahmoud Ahmadinejad?

Guess who is most likely to unload on him.

Jay Cost has two pieces up that are well worth a read. One is on the importance of tonight's debate to Thompson, the second is on the 'Larry Craig problem'. When you read the Larry Craig piece, substitute McCain's name for Craig as a test of Cost's analysis. IMO he is right on the money and he has identified the reason why McCain will finish his political career in the Senate.

Jane,

I'll be reading wherever you pick but the Edwards thread might be the best for the liveblog. Fewest comments right now.

In foreign countries the war on drugs and the war on terror are the same. In Canada, all the acts of terror can be directly traced to drug busts, usually bikers. The problem with the drug busts is it is related to US programs that go afer drug dealers, etc. The durg dealers follow up with terrorists who really don't understand they are responding to some guy who is mad he can't get his dope. So, the drug bust work great, but the terror follows, so it's not something the government wants to do unless it is related to the US where it can all be coordinated. DEA NOCs are always qualified in counter terror and usually have a military background. In Canada, they are not wanted because the terror issue is domestic, although the drug work is international. So, the CIA wants to be part of this, but we all know about Plame, so, they prefer a DEA NOC, not CIA NOC, where all those Plame problems show up.

Rick, Good catch--I blogged it and mentioned you, but apparently the email addy I had for you is no longer working.

Jane

Rick,

Good idea. Someone just called and said that CNBC was airing the debate live at 4:00 PM and then a rerun later. I'm not sure I'll make the early time, but I will try.

Rick Ballard

Thanks, Clarice. That is indeed what I meant. Primary voters value the party substantially more than voters in the general. It beat McCain in '00 and it will beat him again this year.

Jane

Rick,

Do you mean the "John edwards deplorably racist" thread?

Jane

Okay, that's where I'm going. I'd love some company!

"Do you mean the "John edwards deplorably racist" thread?"

The Edwards,Nobody is interested thread."I took my hair to a party but nobody asked me to play".

JMH:
Have you guys had any weather up there?

We got rain a couple days last week. Well, maybe a total of a quarter of an inch.

I look pretty damn good in a tool belt.

No doubt.

mrs hit and run used to ask me "Do I look good in this outfit?" to which I would always reply, "honey, you would look good in nothing"

How bout them Cowboys! ( Whew!)

Holy moly. I was on here while watching the game last night.

Nearly got disgusted enough to turn it off.

But hung in there.

After the Cowboys got the onsides kick, I was on my knees.

No, I wasn't praying.

I couldn't sit any more. But when I stood up, I was too close to the tv and the angle was bad and the picture dark, so I got on my knees to get a better view.

But who knows? Maybe unconsciously I helped them win.

Hit, I was in Trinity last Friday and saw an actual mud puddle. We haven't had a drop in weeks. I've lost two 60 year old boxwoods so far.

The pivotal point in all the Iraq War din that seems to be lost ..

what happened to the "September surprise" ?

The surprise that was supposed to parallel the Viet Nam "Tet Offensive".

It was predicted for months, but it never came.

Patrick,
Biofeedback worked for me too. And I used biofeedback for my TMJ symptoms and it helped a great deal. I think its the way to go if you want permanent results.

kim

TMJ is the daughter of a thousand causes, and effective treatment is highly individualized. There is no reason that bio-feedback can't be helpful in many cases. Did you know that the temporo-mandibular joint takes more pressure, in pounds per square inch, than any other joint in the body? When you bite down on something tough, the pressure gets to be impressive.
