separating the Dems from the Dames....

Is it just me, or is it getting hard to tell the Dems from the Dames? Is everybody out playing roller derby, golf, or trying to decide which shade of Chanel suits them better? Where are Hillary, Howard, and Di-Fi now that defense lawyers, in the Libby case, have called for all but eviscerating the files of working journalists at The New York Times, and Time Magazine, as well as catching broadcast journalist, Tim Russert, in their crosshairs? Even Nancy Pelosi appears to be hiding under the covers.

When Robert Bennett, Judith Miller's counsel, says that the subpoenas, and investigation into the former New York Times reporter's records, and notes, as well as written correspondence with her editors, is broader than this specific, and alleged, leak calling it "a fishing expedition," (CNN), what more do we concerned citizens, politicians or otherwise, need in order for us to speak up against this subversion of a free press? Something is rotten in the state of Denmark, and it's not cartoons of the prophet Mohammad.

What is going on in this country, and when will those who were hired to represent us, of both parties, stop stroking each other, and start stoking the flames of discontent. Shame on those who wish to occupy the Oval Office next for not opposing the actions of a defense team whose aim is worse, and more transparent, than the rightful target of this investigation!
