    The money graph: "Can you imagine the media firestorm if staffers for, say, Frist, had used Barack Obama's Social Security number to fraudulently obtain his credit report looking for stuff to derail his Senate campaign? Frist would have been before a media firing squad faster than you can say Bill Bennett."
    We will see what comes of this. If they did in fact invade his privacy then they should pay the price. The rest of it is speculation. This sounds alot like the old battle cry of the right "Media-Bias".

    Because some are not typical conservatives, see I did go see Crash based on your recommendation.

    "Jim Barrett, chairman of the Vermont Republican Party, used Sanders' family payments to highlight what he said is Democratic "hypocrisy" for fiercely attacking DeLay. "It's the standard hypocrisy from the left," Barrett said. "When a Republican does it, it's inappropriate and front page news. But now it turns out, our own Bernie Sanders has been doing it for a long time."

    He added: "If it's corruption when Tom DeLay does it, then it's corruption when Bernie Sanders does it."
    There is a little part you left out.


    No laws prohibit candidates from paying family members for campaign work. But the appearance that lawmakers use their position to benefit people close to them concerns watchdog groups.

    So why the big deal when Delay was doing it? Or did you miss that obvious point?

    Ah, yes. That unfounded charge:

    On Thursday, Book World Editor Marie Arana, noting that she had been "a Young Republican at 15, a marching SDSer at 20, and roundly disgusted by the blue-team, red-team political dialogue by the time I turned 30," criticized an article on what was called a "stealth evangelism" festival by saying: "The elephant in the newsroom is our narrowness. Too often, we wear liberalism on our sleeve and are intolerant of other lifestyles and opinions. . . . We're not very subtle about it at this paper: If you work here, you must be one of us. You must be liberal, progressive, a Democrat. I've been in communal gatherings in The Post, watching election returns, and have been flabbergasted to see my colleagues cheer unabashedly for the Democrats."

    Downie says he is concerned if some staffers are openly displaying political preferences but that Arana's comments were valuable and "made clear that we do have a diverse staff when it comes to ideological backgrounds."

    But since it is just information that shapes public opinion, they get a pass.

    How do you think BSG is going to play out next January? Will Galactica destroy Pegasus?

    Paint Vinyl siding?? I think the point of vinyl siding is to avoid having to ever paint again.

    Well, the GF thinks the Pegasus is Cylon but I say that's too obvious.

    I am however having trouble with the premise that there is no discernable difference or "test" between humans and cylons.

    Agreed. For instance, Boomer #2 being raped in that cell? Or letting Adama choke her out? I thought they were possessed of super human strength or something.

    Also, why hasn't Pegasus been affected by the computer virus? They've had contact with the Cylons...

    Yup! Exactly. I'm allowing for the lack of logical difference test for the sake of the storyline at the moiment but it is nagging.

    That's what my GF said when she was saying they have to be cylons since they were not affected by the virus.
