Attack of the Media Clones

To get some idea of the raw hatred pent up in the liberal media and Democratic Party against Mr. Bush, a hatred which is ever more obviously propelling their current attack on the President, consider the statement of CBS "newsman" Dan Rather regarding pressure he has experienced not to express his true thinking:

"It is an obscene comparison ... but you know there was a time in South Africa that people would put flaming tyres around people's necks if they dissented," said Mr Rather. "And in some ways the fear is that you will be necklaced here, you will have a flaming tyre of lack of patriotism put around your neck."

Yes. Mr. Rather has it right the first time. It is an obscene comparison. But it appears that he and his like minded Democrats feel they now need to indulge in obscenity to express their innermost thoughts. As Cole Porter put it: "When authors, too, who once knew better words, now only use four letter words writing prose ... anything goes!"
