    Were you expecting Maureen Dowd or Paul Krugman of the NYT?

    How about Wolf Blitzer or Chris Matthews?

    BTW, that would be Fox News with the highest ratings (by far) than the other cable news networks.

    George, people slow down to look at car wrecks, too--doesn't make it right...

    And my point is not about Snow. I actually like Snow--he's one of the least objectionable conservatives out there. It's just that Fox "News" Channel spends 60% of its airtime trying to convince everyone they're not blatantly partisan. So where else would the most partisan administration of all time look for it's next employee?

    BTW, Maureen Dowd is also annoying to a self-avowed left wing liberal like me. She grates on my nerves.

    There is no proof to the above statement.

    Are all conservatives "objectionable" to you? As a conservative, I find that the liberal viewpoint is diamterically opposite from what I believe. But they are certainly entitled to their opinion. I don't like some of them, but they are certainly not all "objectionable".

    I'm light. Just tryin to have a philosophical discussion. Actually, it is pretty interesting to have a dialogue with a liberal who doesn't hate everything about himself and his country.

    Aw, there you go! I LOVE my country. I even like a few conservatives...and I will bet, despite everything we've written to each other recently, that given a few beers I'd even learn to like YOU! But it would take a few beers...maybe a twelve pack...

    Hell, after a twelvepack, I could like Howard Dean.

    George, unless you are a pathetic lightweight - I am thinking that it would take numerous twelve packs, a couple of fifths, some "recreational substances", a long period of toxic induced coma, and possibly death related to the above for you to like Howard Dean.

    You might like Ted Kennedy about the same time you like Howard. I will probably like neither one of them in my lifetime.

    You ever hear that country song, "I'm Not as Good as I Once Was" or whatever it is called? I'm old. I do not imbibe in the manner I did when I was under 30. Of course, with a couple of weeks of practice...
