MUST SEE!!! Nightline's closing comment...
Head's up west coast!

Ted mentions Bush's complaints to the media showing coffins of soldiers being shown and then throws it right back in Shrub's face that its not OK unless it's in a campaign ad, then shows Bush's 9/11 ad with coffins being removed from ground zero.

Absolutely phucquing brilliant from Ted. Finally, a reporter doing his job on this two faced administration.

3. Add that to Tweety's comments about how he couldn't understand
how a woman and husband who put out the pictures of the coffins get fired, yet those who are didn't tell the truth about WMD's , etc. are still allowed to go on without punishment (sic)...

WOW.

4. says it is ok to show EXCEPT in a political campaign
You may want to edit your statement. You mixed up your sentence. Go back and reread.

Ted says it is ok to show returning dead in the flag draped coffins but not appropriate when they did split screen with Bush father....

AND also not appropriate in political ads....

The way he played into that was beautiful....he show the beginning part of the ad where it is patriotic and said ...it is appropriate in a patriotic setting......but NOT when that setting is used for political purposes.....and

Then they let the ad run through to the end with Bush walking forward saying he is Bush and approves of this ad.......

PERFECT......Yeah Score one for the good guys....

9. And as long as you've mentioned ABC
Edited on Fri Apr-23-04 11:42 PM by rocknation
We can't thank Peter Jennings too many times for trying to "gotcha" Wes Clark on the Bush AWOL issue and having it blow up in his face. Wes didn't back down, it ignited a national scandal, and now the Bush camp looks that much dumber for suggesting that Kerry has the inferior military record!

11. Because the True Traitorous George is beginning to push
his paid supporters Over-The-Edge.

Maybe I'll send a quick email of appreciation to those who finally realize that their reputation and conscience is just NOT worth selling out to george.

He was great with his parting shot tonight...I also think he gave Powell a pretty hard time...

15. Saw it!
Was VERY pointed. Kind of like, "we've had just about enough of your bullshit, Mr. Bush."
