The "Donald," Exploiting the Willingness of The MSM to Pander Worthless News
The last few days have been bloated with coverage of Tara Conner, laced with heavy doses of sexy skimpy bikini footage .
First the stories were about the Miss USA management considering ending her reign. Apparently, she was engaging in wild partying-- possibly drinking under age, possibly drug use, possibly bi-sexual, possibly swinging, possibly many partners.
The reports are run again and again with images of her walkingscantily clad on a stage. Male anchors make remarks about her pretty face, when it's clear that's not where they're looking at all.
It's always mentioned that Donald Trump owns the Miss USA venue. There was a kind of tacit understanding that "the Donald" was going to do one of his famous "your fired" actions with his randy beauty queen.
Then the press conference occurs, covered as heavily as the other major distraction-- the Mt. Hood climber tragedy, where we've gotten to know, all too well, the relatives of the ill-fated climbers.
Pretty Miss Tara is going to be given a pass if she goes into rehab. The Donald is being oh so wonderfully kind and generous. She gets a second chance.
CNN interviews someone in management from the Miss Universe organization, who refuses to discuss drug problems.
It is hard to imagine how much this has all been worth to Trump and his little Tara tart. It's really been a brilliant piece of marketing and promotion. How much are the hours of coverage worth? It has to be tens of millions of dollars.
Then there's Bush, becoming more and more alone in his "leadership" over the Iraq war.
Fortunately, at least a few moments of news time are stolen away from the Tara's t*ts and ass show to report that John Abizaid opposes the "surge" of 70,000 additional troops that Bush is pushing for.
Oh, but Abizaid is rotating out and retiring.
Bush has always said he listens to his generals. Yeah. Right. As look as their noses are in contact with his anal sphincters. As soon as a general disagrees, he "retires."
It is time for the media to give the Bush Idiocracy the attention it deserves. Bush is becoming more and more isolated, dumping the few competent advisors he has. That will surely leave him with marginally or totally incompetent "Brownie" types and ass-kissing sycophants.
It is time for the new congress to listen to Dennis Kucinich-- to block the further funding of the Iraq and to use the money last funded to withdraw the troops. The people spoke in the last election. Even General Abizaid opposes Bush's latest stupidity.
It is time to stop Bush from further idiotic, stupid, destructive actions. There's really only one way to do that. Multiple committee chairs must hit the ground running with investigations. They should be starting with hearings, investigating Bush appointees, with the intention of finding dirt on them, then getting them to roll over on higher ups, so eventually, all the fingers point to Bush and Cheney. It shouldn't take long to produce significant results. By November, we could have a new president. It would not be surprising to find the republican minority negotiating to cooperate with a push to have Bush and Cheney resign in exchange for a deal that puts a republican in the presidency or vice presidency. That may be an offer the Democrats will take up, especially the vice president. OF course, holding out will strengthen the Dems hold on the senate.
It is time to do everything possible to stop Bush and his fraudulently started war. That means the Dems will have to get tough. It shouldn't be hard. Any Republican who opposes this will be losing the support of a significant portion of his dwindling constituency.
There is no winning or victory in Iraq. It is a matter of the least deadly, least disastrous way we can get out. But there is no question. We have to leave and very soon.
It is time for the US media to do their job, to stop pandering and start providing responsible information. The US is being dreadfully hurt because the mainstream media have failed to do their job. It was tempting to add a youtube image of Tara Conner strutting around 90% naked. Including youtube videos increases reader clicks. But I didn't, because then I'd have been using sex to pull more readers, even though I feel MY message is at least serious, and urgent. What do you think?
