Strongly Worded Letters

Stewart and Colbert might just end up saving the country in the long run.

New Survey Reveals Why Jon Stewart is the Biggest Long Term Threat to Fox News:
"Fox News has made no secret of their distaste for Colbert, and especially Jon Stewart, and it is pretty obvious why. Colbert and Stewart are educating an entire generation of younger viewers to critically think about what they see in the media. The long term health of Fox News is going to depend on their ability to attract and retain younger viewers. These are the same viewers that are watching Jon Stewart expose and mock Fox News on a nightly basis. This is why FNC goes out of its way to impugn the credibility of Stewart anytime they can. It is funny to think that the competition that may do the most long term damage to Fox News is not Keith Olbermann or Rachel Maddow, but a comedian who hosts a nightly mock newscast on a comedy network."

Amen to this. However, I've always felt that the weak-ass Dems used the strongly worded letters with not teeth to lift the spirits of their very dispirited voters. Didn't work then and won't work now. Roll up your sleeves and get to fucking work.

Daily Kos: Strongly Worded Letters Don't Cut It:
"While Rep. Grivalja is definitely one of the Good Guys, promises that 'This time will be different' just don't cut it.

The Congressman should be doing more than writing letters about protecting Social Security, he should be protecting Social Security by introducing a bill to defund the President's Deficit Commission."

This is not good. I'm glad I haven't touched an antibiotic in more than a decade.

Rare to hear such praise from a Yankee, and he definitely didn't stick around long enough to kick off some of the dirt underneath, but a nice write up.

Commentary: Southern hospitality is no joke at Alabama | PennLive.com:
"But I can tell you this much about my first trip to Alabama and I think a lot of PSU fans who made this trip would agree: Very few people associated with any team project as much grace and love for the game of college football than these folks. They’re good people. And it’s plain to see in every detail they’ve etched into their domain. Visiting it and meeting them has been a gratifying experience."
