Sleep on it

In news of 'No-shit, we've known this from the get-go'.....

Rumsfeld decision let Bin Laden escape: Senate report | Raw Story:

"WASHINGTON (AFP) – Osama bin Laden was 'within the grasp' of US forces in late 2001 but escaped because then-defense secretary Donald Rumsfeld rejected calls for reinforcements, a hard-hitting US Senate report says

And, further, in news of 'No-Shit, we've stated that this was the reason from the get-go'....

But, dirty fucking hippies can only be right after the fact... when it is too damn late to do anything about it.

Daily Kos: Dem Congressman: Bush "Let bin Laden Get Away" to Justify Iraq Invasion:

"'Look what happened with regard to our invasion into Afghanistan, how we apparently intentionally let bin Laden get away. How we intentionally did not follow the Taliban and al-Qaeda as they were escaping,' Hinchey said. 'That was done by the previous administration because they knew very well that if they would capture al-Qaeda, there would be no justification for an invasion in Iraq.'"

70 + 63 + 60 = 100?

And not 1 FAUX viewer blinked.

Math iz hard.

Whoops: Fox graphics department goes rogue on Palin poll:

"According to a recent Fox news poll, her backing for the GOP nomination has swelled to 70 percent among party voters, anchor Byron Harlan said.

According to the poll, the other top candidates for a 2012 bid on the Republican ticket are Mike Huckabee, with 63 percent and Mitt Romney with 60 percent."

She's the worst.

Palin Plane Tour: Using Private Jet, Forcing Staff To Take Bus:

"Sarah Palin's 'Going Rogue' bus has logged thousands of miles as it crosses the country, promoting her memoir. But Palin herself has been traveling by private jet, using the bus only for brief stops and media appearances."

It must be the media's fault. HAS to be.

Insider: Sarah Palin uninformed on Latino issues - Jonathan Martin - POLITICO.com:

"A top adviser on Hispanic issues to John McCain’s presidential campaign said Sunday that a joint interview with McCain and Sarah Palin planned for Univision last fall had to be canceled because Palin was unprepared to discuss Latin America policy.

“She did not feel comfortable speaking about issues regarding Hispanics and Latin America,” GOP consultant Ana Navarro told Univision anchor Jorge Ramos in an interview. “Those are not topics that come up frequently in Alaska. So she asked to cancel the interview and, unfortunately, you were already there.”"

Rigth, Matt?

Matt Taibbi - Taibblog – Yes, Sarah, There is a Media Conspiracy - True/Slant:

"Is the media out to get Sarah Palin? It seems like most of the letters I get are insisting that I admit it. “Surely you can’t deny,” writes one woman from Florida, “that no political figure in American history has had to put up with what Sarah Palin has had to put up with from the mainstream media.”

Now, this is the part of this red-blue schtick where I’m supposed to strike back without thinking and re-hash the history of, say, the Monica Lewinsky scandal in rebuttal and then, as the argument progresses, do the whole “I know you are but what am I?” thing until the end of time. I’ve decided from now on that I’m just not going to go there with any of this culture-war bullshit. It’s exhausting. I mean, hell, if you want to argue over who’s more justified in wallowing in media victimhood, that’s not a fight I mind losing. Mazel tov!

I would, however, like to point out a few things, none of which really involve taking sides in this particular cat-fight. In no particular order:"

It really sucks that Alabama sucks so freakin' hard.

Not a vagina amongst them.

GOP gubernatorial candidates favor jail time for abortion doctors | Breaking News from the Press-Register - al.com:

"MONTGOMERY -- Doctors who perform abortions on demand would face time in prison if most Republicans running for governor in Alabama had their way."

After all of the crap above, I'm thinking I want the opposite. De-boost my memory.
