And it's all because they don't want Kerry to win!! :eyes:

1. LOL!
Actually, the timing of the leak is NOT BAD for Kerry. It would have been worse if it happened right before the election.

All in all this is not going to affect Kerry, IMO. It will be dead by the end of the week, swept away by the 9/11 report and then the Dem convention (and perhaps the unveiling of Osama?)...

7. And the source of the leak and its timing
is now an issue as much as Berger.

10. According to a memo released by the Kerry campaign
Santorum was one of several Repuke senators who attended a meeting Tuesday with RNC chair Ed Gillespie on this.

20. Some Repub idiot (I know, you ask which one?)...
...some senator, not Santorum, was on TV yesterday saying how the day after Sandy Berger stuffed his socks (they would know about stuffing socks), the very next day Kerry spoke about something that 'possibly could've been' in those memos, and it's 'possible' that's why Sandy Berger did that....

I kind of felt sorry for the guy...I mean if he really believes that, I supposed Santa and the Easter Bunny are good to him too...it's sad really.

9. Only in the EVIL WORLD of CNN/MSGOP/FAUX/MOONIE TIMES/
GOP HATE RADIO is this getting any traction. Such respectable sources such as the NYT, Rather, and Brokow, are portraying this as another part of the long going investigation, making it clear that Sandy Berger did NOT break any laws.

11. I could be wrong
but it seems to me that they probably don't care if their non-story goes nowhere.

They got the major news channels to put out negatives against Democrats and Kerry - so that's what is important.

Tomorrow, next week, they can have more non-stories. They don't need to amount to anything. Just give the appearance that Democrats (ie "girlie men") are weak and Republicans (ie "go fuck yourself") are strong.

23. Bingo!
I'm sorry to say this, but most posters on this thread are giving the public too much credit. Most folks will hear nothing more than that a Dem did something which the repubs charge harms our national security. No further analysis, no further thought, and no further investigation to see if that report is true.

The seed is planted, the Dems are bad, and that's all they need to know. Next week they will hear the next unsubstantiated, unfounded allegation lobbed at our people by the corporate media just to reinforce that the Dems are bad.

And the public can go back to watching those nice, mind-numbing reality shows and sitcoms because, as the corporate media reassures them, the repubs are protecting us. :eyes:


God, I sound more like Hamilton every day. *sigh*

15. CBS Evening News
Edited on Wed Jul-21-04 12:00 PM by wryter2000
Last night Dan Rather was almost dripping sarcasm when reporting the Berger "story." He made it clear that this was a political ploy on the part of the Republicans.

18. Catwoman, did you see Pat Buchanan on Scarbhead?
He told Dee Dee Myers that it was Berger's lawyer who said Berger hid the copies in his socks. Pat tried, but he just couldn't pull it off. LOL!
