Making Something Out of Nothing

We all got to hear repeated discussions of bozo Robertson's remark on Chavez this week. As if this guy was important or had sway over public policy. You can always tell when nothing big is going on. Some idiot makes it to the national cable news.

Flipping through stories today, I catch USA today making something out of nothing, too.

"So long as I am president, we will stay, we will fight and we will win the war on terrorism," he told a supportive audience of National Guard members and their families in a sports arena in this Boise suburb. Pulling out now, he said, would "embolden the terrorists and create a staging ground to launch more attacks against America."

The speech came in response to intensifying anti-war protests that have put Bush on the defensive lately.

Intensifying anti-war protests. I really beg to differ. I don't think the presence of a certain someone and some anti-war folks from the "peace house" in Crawford warrant the word "intensifying". Particularly when most of these folks have been down there for at least a year. The media is just now paying attention because you know who is making an ass of herself down there. However, I don't see it garnering much more adherents.

When I see marches like the ones during the Republican Convention every other week, then I'll let you have the word "intensifying". Otherwise, this is the media. As usual, making something out of nothing.

Oh, as for the "eroding" public support, I bet $10 right now that when the Iraq constitution goes to referendum and gets passed, we'll see the public support strangely "increase".

What I notice about "public support eroding" is more like public support being "absent" as in, not much to see so their busy microwaving their budget gourmet meals and wondering how they're going to afford the gas to go to work tomorrow.

That media. They sure do have their finger on the pulse of America.

Something to consider. If it were not for the bozos who followed this guy, we would have never had a GW prez going back to 2000....

Perhaps his influence is under remarked, because of what he said?
