Good question-

7 McCain stands with his Catholic bashing supporter. What is that good Catholic boy Tim Russert going to do?

by Joe Sudbay (DC) · 3/01/2008 11:49:00 AM ET

This should be all the talk at Catholic churches around the country this weekend, like Blessed Sacrament parish here in DC. That’s where Russert and Chris Matthews go to the 11:00 mass on Sundays, we’re told. Chances are their fellow Catholics won’t appreciate the Church being called “the great whore” by a leading McCain supporter — who McCain refuses to denounce and reject.

16 George Bush told the truth yesterday

Friday February 29, 2008 10:17 EST

While the media has completely ignored this angle of the telecom immunity story — the only one that is actually real — they continue to pose Jeff-Gannon/Chris-Wallace-like “questions” such as this one, from yesterday’s Press Conference:

Q Mr. President, on FISA, do you worry that perhaps some House Democratic leaders are playing a high-stakes game of “wait and see,” in terms of if we get attacked, we all lose; if we don’t get attacked, then maybe that makes the case that you don’t need all the powers in FISA?

Mr. President, aren’t Democrats purposely causing us to be vulnerable to the Terrorists in order to make a political point? Thank you, Mr. President. It’s amazing that even when the Leader points the media directly to the real story — amnesty is crucial because lawsuits “could lead to the disclosure of information about how we conduct surveillance” — they still ignore it.
