2. now now CatWoman
Don't be putting any reality in their story. What they say NOW is the truth - not what written/audio/video history says.
:sarcasm:

Silly woman :D

5. Oceania is at war with Eastasia.
Oceania has ALWAYS been at war with Eastasia.

And we are so thankful to Big Brother for raising the chocolate ration to twenty grams a week (up from the previous ration of 30 grams).



One Fox News has their memory holes installed, all will be well. Once the internet is shut down, that is.

3. Faux Bushco news would never bite the hand that feeds them.
Brit Hume actually said Clinton's interview was only about limiting the interns influence on his legacy.

Can you imagine Hume saying anything bad about Bush and his magnificent and death causing lies to thousands of Iraqis and our troops?

6. "Lying moran" isn't strong enough to characterize these people
(on Fox). They are part of the Neocon Nazi's propaganda machine.

7. Orthography Is Key (Spelling & Grammar Police)

Um...it's 'morons', not 'morans'.

Please, please, please don't be this guy. Let's learn from his errors, at least:

http://politicalhumor.about.com/library/images/blpic-mo...

Also - "Nazi's" is a singular possessive. I don't think Only One Big Neocon - even on the level of Darth Cheney - could centrally be to blame for all such media bias.

:spank:

I don't normally wield this kind of schoolma'am ruler, but to see such an egregious spelling error featured in a front-page DU headline is really almost embarrassing: it's exactly the kind of thing that turns off first-time visitors seeking in DU a viable alternative to the Neo-Con media circle jerk.

16. So is "cajones" (vs. cojones) also an intentional misspelling?
I always figured that morans was being spelled that way deliberately, as a little semi-insider mockery of the usual mouth-breathing right-winger's poor spelling -- and all that it implies about their intellect, level of education, ability to formulate (let alone express) rational and well-considered ideas, etc. However, I have my doubts about cajones, which I see a lot, not to mention alot. :eyes:

22. naw... just a phoneticism from a non-Spanish speaker...
(hence not actionable) We also allow for elegant, unacknowledged words.

27. Welcome to DU
I guess you don't know that we have pet words we purposefully use here. We use moran rather than moron because of that very picture and we use hugh instead of huge for another and I'm series111111111 for I'm serious!!!! and so on. It's a game we play with the words because we are so much better than the freepers at spelling and punctuation. Yes, it's snobbish and childish but it's our game and your request that we change it ain't gonna change it.

11. Ask Fox
If any interviewer at FOX ever asked an Administration official what they did about retaliation for bombing the USS Cole, what was asked and what was the answer?

Crickets chirp.

19. You could tell immediately Wallace was lying
Because when Clinton finally cornered the little weasel and asked him directly whether Wallace had ever asked anyone in the Bush administration at any time about the USS Cole, Wallace said that what with Iraq and Afghanistan there were lots and lots of things to ask Bush administration officials about. Which is about as close to an admission as you're likely to ever get out of a Faux News correspondent about his integrity or lack thereof.

Curious that Wallace thought Clinton bore all kinds of responsibility for Somalia, a mission begun by Bush the First, but that Wallace didn't think Bush the Second had any duty to follow through on the USS Cole. I guess Wallace figures some news questions are more legitimate than others. Or maybe he figures that if he asks the wrong question of a Bush administration official, he'll be in danger of losing that nice fat paycheck Faux gives him.

25. If Wallace isn't going to practice journalism, he should be fired.
If Wallace wants to be a partisan, he needs to be paid by the campaign he is working for (if he isn't already).

26. His father must be completely ashamed of him.
I can only imagine the disgust Mike Wallace must have felt as he watched that sneering, smarmy punk interviewing Clinton.

33. Bwah! Good one. Interesting bit of trivia re: G. Wallace's run in
1968: apparently a bumpersticker seen during that campaign was "Wallace, Wallace, Uber Alles"

How apropos...

(learned this while playing Trivial Pursuit with the family the other day)
