Next week, Wolf Blitzer is going to be the moderator of a Republican debate to be sponsored by CNN, in conjunction with the Tea Party. Is there any reason why we shouldn't conclude that CNN is endorsing the Tea Party, and therefore, the Republican Party? 

If this doesn't make CNN lose all credibility with the American public, I don't know what should. As far as I'm concerned, I won't be watching that network  for anything resembling "fair and balanced" news reporting any more.


NBC sportscasters were ecstatic to be able to broadcast a Tigerpalooza tournament over Labor Day weekend. I don't know who else was playing and don't know who won. When Tiger plays, everyone else fades into the background.


On a lighter note, Lauren Bush, niece of George W. Bush, married designer Ralph Lauren's son. This makes her Lauren Lauren.


The Super Committee only has about two months to solve the debt problem. Show of hands:  How many think anything at all will be accomplished?


Rudy Giuliani says he'll only run for President if the GOP field "looks really desperate." How desperate would the situation have to get before Republicans beg Giuliani to run?  I'd guess it would be shortly after the Rapture.


When, oh when will the "Silly Season" be over?

Stay tuned.

Silly season won't be over until November 7, 2012 - the day after election day.

Silly season is the longest season of all, and oh, so annoying!

It is so silly that if you don't laugh, you will cry. Or scream. Or maybe both.
Why can't the liberals learn how to monopolize the country's attention and direct the conversation like the Tea party has? They have gone from a few nutcases to this total monopoly of the airwaves within such a short time. It drives ME nuts!

I agree with alwaysinthebackrow. We also need to send scathing emails like my right wing friends do. Man am I tired of those.

Lauren Lauren! Quite a name. I hope she hangs onto her maiden name. My college friend with the beautiful name of Lilly Del Costello married John Willy and chose to become Lilly Willy. What some people will do for love.

Today's politcal nonsense is much like living in a middle school all year around. I haven't seen such adolescent behavior anywhere and we all have reason to be ashamed of our reps and the news media that stirs the pot.

I certainly agree with Maria!

"fair and balanced" !

Is there such a thing these days ?

Even the good old BBC can't manage it in it's reports anymore.

Your post gave me a good laugh. With CNN out of the running for your viewing pleasure will FOX be the new chosen channel? No? Hmmm....I guess you can always watch ESPN :o
I think it’s funny - the right wingers say Fox is too liberal and CNN is just a socialist propaganda station. The liberals say FOX is the mouth piece of the far right and now CNN is to right wing. WOW! This is surely a bad sign. I guess it's good for both networks that there are plenty of apathetic Americans out here that just want to be entertained.

@ Arkansas Patti - If I only had your email :-)
