9. Oh, yeah...drum beat is getting louder and louder
Edited on Wed May-04-05 08:28 PM by rainbow4321
It started kinda quiet..a few months ago the right wing rag Dallas Morning News had an article about company contributions...in it was a small blurb that the newspaper had phoned AA headquarters in Ft Worth about the contribution. Their response, as it was written, sounded like a very terse "he said he needed money for legal fees back then and he couldn't afford it so, yeah, we gave him some money..but we have NOT since then". So the distancing was in the works back then.
Keeping in mind that this is this neocon newspaper that had Rove as Texan of the Year 2004 and shrub given the same award in 2003 (and a runner up for 2004 was one of those nasty swift boat guys from Texas), it was NOT a good sign for Delay or the involved companies that a confrontational phone call was even MADE by the DMN. IMHO, the only way DMN would be writing anti-Bugman articles would be if the rove/shrub regime gave them the OK to do so.
