Just another talking point

I was amazed to see something from Talking Points Memo in the Marianas Variety. Okay, it's about the Marianas and Jack Abramoff. For good measure it takes a shot at the Saipan Tribune, but I thought they got their news from Townhall. TPM is at the other end of the spectrum.

This is just more unraveling of the Abramoff web. Now it's former Representative and Senate candidate Bob Schaffer with his hand in the cookie jar.

I've followed TPM for quite awhile now. They're very good at digging and bulldog tenacious. And they're very irritating.

I can feel their glee as they kick rocks so I can watch the millipedes and bloodworms scurry for cover. Juiceee information.

Then they editorialize.

Don't believe me? Check out the following video. I can't argue with the facts. It's the spin, the hyperbole, that makes me cringe and want to shout 'you were doing so well, why do you have to go overboard?'

That's just me. What do you think?

Josh should have asked someone to update him. He should have taken out the sensational blurbs or said, "There have been instances of..."

About Schaffer - I predict he will fall big time. He was a foot soldier for the A-Team (Abramoff, Tan, Fitial)

Every time a new one drops, I'm reminded of Erlichman's old "twist slowly, slowly in the wind comment".

Most of these guys treat their "friends" the same as their victims.
