There are already several thousand people waiting to get in. Love the caption today: "Palin to MSM: Iron My Moose!"

"More troubles for the left? Yes there is. Seems MSNBC canned Chris Matthews and Keith Olberman from part of their election coverage for blatant biases favoring Dems. About time."Olberman's bias is against arrogance, stupidity and corruption, which is why Republicans hate him so much. Matthews, not so much. Tell me Tom, should Fox can their entire staff for blatant biases towards Republicans?"So, let's see Oprah, are you really afraid of Palin?"I guarantee you, Palin will never be on Oprah, and it'll be her handlers who prevent it. She'll never be interviewed by anyone who isn't guaranteed to throw her softballs. She's an unknown, and they want to keep her that way so sheep like you can pretend that an unproven nobody is ready to become president.

Why can't the media simply report the news in an unbiased manner? Which cable networks are the most balanced? I really don't know.

Go Girl? Whatevs. I'm pretty tired of the double talk of socially conservative Republicans. You're the same people that months ago basically said: "A mother should stay at home and take care of the kids and she should make sure she's married because unmarried women need to be married so they aren't a blight on society and using welfare. Here, we'll even give you a break on taxes if you are married even if you're unhappy and the situation is abusive."

"This appears to be projection. Look how long it took the Messiah to keep his promises to be interviewed by Chris Wallace on Fox News and to appear on the O'Reilly Factor."I'm talking about being interviewed by actual journalists-- not appearances on freak shows.

"Why can't the media simply report the news in an unbiased manner? Which cable networks are the most balanced? I really don't know."Hard to say if you can really get a completely unbiased report from the cable networks, xbusguy. Fox News and CNN probably give the most unbiased news, but definitely not all the time, it depends on who is reporting or the show you're watching. Fox will still lean right, like on Fox and Friends in the morning. CNN is a crap shoot, overall to the left but occasionally has a straight shooter on there. It's why I loved Meet the Press when Russert hosted. He'd hold everyone's feet to the fire. There is a great weekly magazine called The Week that gives a summary of the biggest news events and then an equal voice from both sides so you can see how everyone sees it. Highly recommend it.

"Palin will be interviewed first by Charlie Gibson."A recorded interview by a reporter with a reputation of pitching softball questions, especially to conservative politicians.Let's see her in front of real journalists who will ask hard questions, and not let her get by with memorized talking points.-- but you know what-- ain't gonna happen.

Restore Reason ... Please check this release from Brownback's office. ..."I am also pleased that the Appropriations Committee voted to fund the Marriage Development Accounts," said Brownback. "In the District of Columbia, 57 percent of all babies are born to single mothers. MDAs have the potential to help couples get married and avoid the disincentives built into the welfare system. Many single parents valiantly raise wonderful children, but we want to ensure that wherever possible, the tax code and the welfare system encourage, and not discourage a mother and father to get married." Really? You think it's taxes that was discouraging a mother and father from getting married?

"I guess his love affair with the Messiah was a deal breaker."Ya think? Just listen to him talking about the "thrill" he gets when Obama talks Now that is an example of both bias and stupidity on Matthews part.

Well, Andrew, McCain been in Congress since 1982 (after moving to AZ just to run for the House). So I guess he has no experience either! Heck, as a former mayor of Lawrence, Boog was mayor of a town more than 10 times the size of Wasilla, so I guess that makes him greater than 10 times more experienced! Gosh, why not just go with Palin, and the 100th person through the door at Walmart.Palin / Shopper to be named later '08!

"Olberman's bias is against arrogance, stupidity and corruption,"Olberman is the very soul of arrogance & stupidity. I'll give him a pass on corrution for the moment.

"You have yours, bozo, and we have ours. Simple."You want it to be that simple. Only problem is that Obama has been out there under the microscope for 4 years. The Republicans will be trying to limit Palin's exposure to photo-ops and church socials for the next two months.

"I'll go with that."So, you prefer the namby-pamby school of journalism.

"Only problem is that Obama has been out there under the microscope for 4 years."Think again, bozo. Until he started running for President about 2 1/2 years ago, he was just a get-along, go-along junior Senator. He kept his head down & voted the party line 97% of the time.

No term limits? Isn't that why we are voting in November - because W is on his way out? He can't run for a third term. Perhaps you were talking about folks in Congress like Jesse Helms who have to be pried out.

The Matthews & Olberman decision could have purely cam down to numbers ..... not about being liberal or conservative ....... they again finished last among cable channels. I am sure their bias would have not been much of a problem to MSNBC if they finished in first or second.
