The CBS Docs: Kerry Campaign is Off the Hook

"Off the hook" in the proverbial sense, not the hip-hop sense. The docs were offered, but the campaign never returned any of the calls. As if it makes any scintilla of difference to the Karl Rove Krackheads.

By the way, d'ja notice ABC News is leading the charge in stories about the CBS News deal? Is Hannity finally running the news department over there?
Ex-Guardsman: I Contacted Kerry Campaign

A retired Texas National Guard official mentioned as a possible source for disputed documents about President Bush's service in the Guard said he passed along information to a former senator working with John Kerry's campaign.

The retired Guard official, Bill Burkett, said in an Aug. 21 e-mail to a list of Texas Democrats that after getting through "seven layers of bureaucratic kids" in the Democrat's campaign, he talked with former Georgia Sen. Max Cleland about information that would counter criticism of Kerry's Vietnam War service. The Associated Press obtained a copy of the e-mail Saturday.

"I asked if they wanted to counterattack or ride this to ground and outlast it, not spending any money. (Cleland) said counterattack. So I gave them the information to do it with," Burkett wrote.

Burkett, who lives just outside of Abilene, wrote that no one at the Kerry campaign called him back.
Can we just set something straight here? The issue all this is about is not the credibility of CBS News. It's the credibility of George W. Bush. The little maniac has lied, lied, lied his way through the first and only term of his presidency. The CBS News oversight - if it is in fact even that - ISN'T ALTERING THE FATE OF AMERICA. BUSH IS. And he's running us all from one shitstorm into another.

Compared to the recklessness of the Crackhead Administration, I don't give a rat's ass about their overlooking a superscript "th." I DO care about a lying president. I cared about the Lewinsky incident, and I sure as hell care about the last three-plus years.
