    Dana Priest lets the air out of the gasbag.

    Prime. Absolutely prime.

    So, Billy, the USAToday story... because two of the companies weren't under contract to supply the information, but did anyway, that renders the whole story moot? Dolt.

    "The American people elected this administration... to protect the country." Ah, so, anything they do is kosher? Fucking dolt.

    William Bennett is a hypocritical gasbag with a 2-by-4 lodged up his ass.

    That was awesome. I love subtle shots that go right for the jugular without the person having gotten down into the mud. You know it just destroyed the gasbag.

    I guess the only solution left is for every news outlet to be required vet their stories with Bill Bennett before running them, since only he seems to know what is harmful to the country. Maybe we can give him a nifty-sounding title like the "news czar."

    Dana, I will pumice your feet. Wash your car. You name it, it's yours.

    That was fucking priceless.

    Love it. It reminds me of the time Arthur Carlson told all of Cincinnati that his city council opponent was a drunk.

    I watched that tonight, and Bennett was getting pissed that he couldn't get in a word. Then he said it he was getting slammed 3-on-1.

    And that was with Bill Safire as one of the three.

    What a tool. It's astounding the arrogance he and the administration are displaying as they make the argument that they alone will determine what's legit to be published and what isn't.

    Like they said, what information was released that terrorists didn't already know about?

    So, Billy Boy, you still wanna throw Dana behind bars for her Pulitzer-winning work on Iraqi prisons?
  11. Safire remaning loyal to the newspaper that stood behind all of his -- Atta in Prague, Hillary to be indicted, etc. -- bullshit.
    What a world.

    You mean it's already there? Damn. I was hoping to be personally responsible for that.
