Cafferty Question of the Day
"Are we wearing blinders when it comes to the real story in Iraq?"

Good one, Jack. Good one.

1. Haven't the sheeple always?
They actually thought that Iraq had a religious government under Saddam, who was bosom buddies with bin Laden and was responsible for 9/11.

2. Let us not forget the noseclips and ear plugs as well as the blinders.

3. it's good...maybe...
I mean, if by blinders he means "ignoring all the good things happening in Iraq, all the schools built" etc. etc. ad nauseam as the right likes to claim, then no, this is not a good question.

If by blinders he means ignoring journalists getting shot by U.S. troops, innocent civilians getting killed in free fire zones, corruption, stealing money, stealing oil, etc. etc. ad nauseam, then this is an excellent question.

To which "blinders" was mr. cafferty referring?

8. You must not be a regular viewer.
He has nothing but contempt for this administration. You should check him out if you get a chance. Daily, he very effectively tears this administration a new asshole in a humorous and cynical manner.

4. Good email he just read...
Someone wrote in:

"No, we are not wearing blinders, DeLay is innocent, so are Rove and Frist. The United States is admired around the world. Brownie did a heckuva job. Yes, there is a Santa Claus. Any questions?"

Jack added, "Wolf, we yearn for those kinds of messages." :-)

5. I wonder if Mike was a DUer??
Cafferty is growing on me "we live for those letters... if we take ourselves to seriously we'd throw ourselves in front of a cross town bus". Wolfie boy asked if he got a lot of funny letters!

7. Has Jack suddenly become a reporter????
I don't watch TV news and very little TV in general. Has jack always been this outspoken or has he just found that being contrary to the rightwing robots profitable for him and ratings?

9. I think it's a little bit of both.
Sorry to reply so late... I work nights, ya know. :-)

Jack's transformation from semi-shill, token-curmudgeon to system-questioning, fact-checker has been astounding.

It's representative of a general awakening,j I think.

I always thought it would come first from the youth. Instead, it's coming from the over-50s.

That's why it's so smart, and snappy, and there's much to learn from it.

I like Cafferty. Call me a flip-flopper. ;-)

10. I like him too...he seemed so out of place
on the other side of the fence. He's in better company now.
