Heck No, We Won't Show!

I noticed the cable news networks had footage today of the 400 people rallying in Washington, D.C., in support of our military presence in Iraq and Afghanistan.

I saw not so much as a single frame of footage of the, now let me see, how many was that... ONE-HUNDRED THOUSAND people who rallied in protest of our overseas military presence.

Aaron Brown tells us the media weren't ignoring them, it's just that the hurricane had priority that day.

The hurricane, the Red Sox, and Tiger Woods, he meant to say, since Tiger and the Sox made the news along with Rita.

Four-hundred supporters of the war get national media coverage. One-hundred thousand people in opposition to the war are ignored.

Whatever. They're probably just a bunch of stinking hippie peaceniks anyway.
