I just had ANOTHER (18th) e-mail read on CNN!
The question was, "A former chairman of the Iraq Study Group says he's "extremely doubtful" that Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri Al-Maliki will be able to secure the country and allow American forces to leave any time soon. Is he right?"

My response was, "Probably, but Bush's only way out of Iraq is to take Maliki's word for it and bring our troops home. They ARE a sovereign nation and Bush said if they ask us to leave we'll leave."

Not important, but I wanted to share (again). :hi:

1. I heard that. It was a good one. So what's your secret to
getting them read on the air?

3. Thanks, Feeney2! I'm glad you heard it...
And I always tell people my secret is sleeping with the producer. :D

13. Thanks, Alamom...
I think Cafferty chooses them himself, so I don't know why I sleep with the producer to get them read on the air! :D

15. Sooner or later they may start cleaning up their act, after they realize there are some Americans
who do listen, and THINK about what they're telling us!

Eighteen times you've told them clearly enough you are still getting the truth regardless of their attempts to spin it beyond recognition! Cool.

No doubt they have always hoped people didn't pay such close attention, so they wouldn't have to maintain any kind of standards whatsoever any longer, just like Fox!

Congratulations.

19. Congratulations again Jen! I think by know Jack recognizes your
name and knows you have a good answer and reads yours on the air. It pays to have a reputation as someone who knows what they are talking about, is up on politics and will have an intelligent brief reply. Good for you! :hi:

22. Thanks,Auntie Bush!
I HOPE he recognizes my name, but I'm not sure. I've written some pretty clever e-mails (IMO) that he didn't read on the air. :D Either way, thanks for the compliment! :hi:

27. Now we need you to have that much success on open phones on Washington Journal!
I think you could sneak in every other day and disregard their 30 day policy. :-)
