Democrats in pajamas...

Betsy Newmark imagines what it might be like if President Bush acted like Dan Rather:

Imagine this press conference:
GW Bush: "We found WMD in Iraq. All of our critics have been completely discredited"

Media: Can we see them?

GW - No. you'll just have to take my word for it. We have experts to prove their authenticity.

Media: Can we talk to the experts? Can we interview the people who found the weapons?

Gw: NO. And the mere fact that you are asking these questions proves that you are partisan rumor mongers. End of story. Case closed

Yeah, tell 'em to go jump in the lake, they're just a bunch of Democrats in pajamas without any checks and balances...

Actually the fact that Republicans can't get away with stuff like that is a strength, not a weakness.

On the same general subject, I caught a good remark by Rush this morning: "The news media is the only business with consumers, where the consumer is always wrong."
