Big Dan's Big News Jan 11, 2009

Republican Wilkes-Barre Times Leader Editor and Publisher Richard L. Connor is no longer capable of writing a column NOT about Rod Blagojevich!

Before opening up the Times Leader today, I guaranteed my wife that Richard L. Connor's column would mention Blagojevich. Connor's ironically titled article "Overlooking behavior of some not fair" (ironic because he is the one always overlooking the behavior of Republicans, especially the most corrupt administration of all time, the Bush administration) continues his obsession with Rod Blagojevich. See here and here and here, as well as today's column.

I can come to only one conclusion:

Richard L. Connor thinks Blagojevich is the governor of Pennsylvania!

Richard L. Connor's columns are starting to remind me of the movie "Being John Malkovich", ever see it? In the movie, at one point everyone looks like John Malkovich and every word out of their mouths is "Malkovich Malkovich Malkovich Malkovich Malkovich" - it's all anyone can say, and everyone, including women, look like John Malkovich. Simply replace "Malkovich" with "Blagojevich" and you have the movie: "Being Richard L. Connor." Both names end in "vich", isn't that funny?

Connor's paper also features a column by FAKE conservative huckster Ann Coulter for "balance". Connor thinks Coulter is a conservative, just like he thinks Bush is a conservative. He also thinks Republicans are conservatives.

Worst economy since Great Depression under still-president Bush.

Never has a family made so much as war profiteers, from a member being president. President George W. Bush, his brothers Marvin, Neil, and their "Uncle Bucky" Bush have made millions over the past 8 years through George's presidency. Enjoy this quick Tour of how the Bush family has cashed in from war profiteering and raked in a fortune from a series of American disasters.

UK, Europe hit with riots over Israel's Gaza campaign

"Taking cover among civilians." This is a curious locution. When you launch missiles to kill the democratically elected officials of a government -- especially when you target their private homes -- where else do you expect to find them? Gaza is a giant, open-air prison which no one can leave and where, as the story notes, 1.4 million people live in densely-packed urban areas and refugee camps. Where else are the "Hamas militants" supposed to exist in this seething sardine tin except "among civilians"?
