No, you’re not being too harsh in your assessment of the behavior of Earle and the complicity of the liberal media. You’re describing something that helps form the basis of the left’s political strategy and what left-wing propagandists understand all too well: It is the impression made on people’s minds, not the actual facts, that is the best tool for the party short on ideas.

I don’t understand the “dirty little gutter-snipe” label for Tom DeLay. I hope you’ll explain why you say that.



Tom DeLay is quite likely to be implicated, charged and convicted for accepting bribes from lobbyists. He has tred a path that others before him destroyed their carreer on.

He also is the politician who claimed that there was 'no waste' in the transportation bill...a bill so full of pork that it oinked when poked with a stick!

The 'gutter-snipe' quotation is borrowed from Winston Churchill, one of the all time masters of the put down. My favorite Churchillian quote was one when he heard that a particular minister was sick...oh let him tell it:

Politician to Churchill: "Winston, have you heard that Sir --- was rushed to the
hospital?" Churchill: "Dear me. I do hope it's nothing trivial."

Or how about this piece of wisdom:

"He has all the virtues I dislike and none of the vices I admire."

One last one:

"Mr. Churchill, if you were my husband, I’d poison your tea!"
"And if you were my wife, I would drink it."

A master at work...

Mahatma — Will he be sharing a cell with Senators Reid and Dorgan, both of whom took money for votes from Abramoff?
