Why Do They Do It?
I went to the Lab Tuesday, for blood work. Guess where she found the best vein. In spite of the way it looks, it didn't really hurt. I just thought I'd make a blatant play for sympathy.
On a wholly different subject, why oh why do the Democrats let Fox News stampede them with their bogus "news" stories? It happens over and over. They panicked over the completely made-up stories on Fox about Acorn, and it ruined that worthy organization. The Democrats and the national media swallowed the story hook, line and sinker and Acorn had to close its doors forever.
Now, they've tried the same thing with Shirley Sherrod, a woman who worked for the Department of Agriculture. It seems Fox News received an edited tape of Ms. Sherrod speaking to the NAACP some 24 years ago. The tape, sent by that disgusting piece of human excrement, Conservative blogger Andrew Breitbart - or as I prefer to refer to him, Not-Quite-Breitbart, purported to be a recent speech made while Ms. Sherrod was still at the Department of Agriculture.
As usual, the networks took the story and ran with it without checking to see if it was true or not. And, even worse, the people in the Obama Administration demanded her resignation without even asking for an explanation from her.
This happens more and more, and it really has got to stop. It is simply inexcusable for the "legitimate" Washington Media to take ANY Fox News story and report it without question. Fox is dedicated to the destruction of the Obama Administration. They have made it perfectly clear.
There are many people out there who make Fox News their exclusive source for news. They believe every word, because they WANT to believe what is being reported there. It doesn't matter if they find out later that the stories are nothing but lies. With them, it's "any means to an end."
If you ask me, and you didn't, but I'll tell you anyway, President Obama needs to grow a pair and so do those members of the Democratic party who constantly panic at every Fox News story.
