No mention of any beer anymore.

Did KKKarl call on the Batphone?

I believe they were involved in the 2000 Selection that got Bunnypants in the WhiteHouse.
hmmm They may also be involved in defending the Saudis against the lawsuits that the 9/11 families are bringing against them.

Katharine Armstrong ranch owner: "There may be a beer or two in there"
MSNBC
Cheney's hunting host lobbied White House
Feb. 14, 2006

http://msnbc.msn.com/id/11349649 /

Armstrong also told NBC News that she does not believe alcohol was involved in the accident. She says she believes no one that day was drinking, although she says there may have been beer available during a picnic lunch that preceded the incident. "There may be a beer or two in there," she said...

7. dig THIS, on funeralgate....MSNBC did the SAME thing on that story!
http://archive.democrats.com/view.cfm?id=1328




This article suddenly disappeared from MSNBC's web site on February 9, 2001 - the day Democrats.com published a major expose on Funeralgate.
Try it yourself:
http://www.msnbc.com/news/479524.asp

This follows the disappearance of several other articles unfavorable to George W. Bush, most notably:

a) the Washington Post article by Al Kamen identifying the Republican thugs who stopped the Miami recount (reposted following inquiries by a Democrats.com member)
http://washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/politics/fedpage/colum...

b) the CNN Crossfire transcript where Larry Flynt charged Bush with helping his girlfriend get an abortion in the early 1970's.
http://www.cnn.com/TRANSCRIPTS/0010/20/cf.00.html

Note to MSNBC: We'll be delighted to remove this article as soon as you retrieve it from Orwell's infamous "Memory Hole."

>>>article in full follows after the "Memory Hole" sentence

12. Aram Rosten is a DC based reporter/ Investigative Producer who
writes for MSNBC, Wash. Monthly and The Nation among other places. I am sure he can verify your claim.

15. It's irrefutable, thanks to the "internets" and google's cache. What
is weird to me is.... what about all the repostings of the "one or two beers" quote. Shouldn't that be visible all over the place and out of the reach of any damage control activities at MSNBC?

16. Just a beer or 2....
Amazing. I was a cop for 5 years, and this is what every single drunk says when they get pulled over. Right before they mistakenly hand you Wendy's drive thru receipts instead of their vehicle reg. and insurance.

A sober person says: "I had 2 x 12 oz Miller Lite's with dinner, about an hour apart"

He was hammered.

And what is a person with 4 heart attacks doing drinking beers while hunting anyway. No wonder they had an emergency medical unit on site.

Meanwhile the rest of us cant afford to sit in line at the doctor's office for 2 hours.
