I'm sorry, you're right, Beak, it is unfair of me to question the lack of verification in HotAir's "Obama's troop encounter was staged" story.  Their straw grasping is clearly beyond reproach.
I don't know what got into me.

So what you're saying is that it's OK for HotAir to engage in unsubstantiated rumormongering, because eventually someone there will actually do some checking to back up their story?  Will they publish a retraction if they find out that the suggestion contained in the anonymous email was untrue?  Does the Pope live in the woods?

Slur? So if you admit to filing away posts IN YOUR MEMORY (she did not specify how it was done) how can it be a slur?

And my how you flatter yourself freely with this imagined adoration.  Methinks your wounded pride and attempt to color Ali as an ad hominem attacker are both pure BS.

I'm afraid it speaks volumes about your true character, especially if you try to hold yourself up against Ali.

Upon passage (with bipartisan support) of legislation repealing the Glass-Steagal Act in 1999, that allowed entities like AIG to become both banks and securities traders (and insurers):

The decision to repeal the Glass-Steagall Act of 1933 provoked dire warnings from a handful of dissenters that the deregulation of Wall Street would someday wreak havoc on the nation's financial system. The original idea behind Glass-Steagall was that separation between bankers and brokers would reduce the potential conflicts of interest that were thought to have contributed to the speculative stock frenzy before the Depression . . .

The opponents of the measure gloomily predicted that by unshackling banks and enabling them to move more freely into new kinds of financial activities, the new law could lead to an economic crisis down the road when the marketplace is no longer growing briskly.

''I think we will look back in 10 years' time and say we should not have done this but we did because we forgot the lessons of the past, and that that which is true in the 1930's is true in 2010,'' said Senator Byron L. Dorgan, Democrat of North Dakota. ''I wasn't around during the 1930's or the debate over Glass-Steagall. But I was here in the early 1980's when it was decided to allow the expansion of savings and loans. We have now decided in the name of modernization to forget the lessons of the past, of safety and of soundness.''

Senator Paul Wellstone, Democrat of Minnesota, said that Congress had ''seemed determined to unlearn the lessons from our past mistakes.''

''Scores of banks failed in the Great Depression as a result of unsound banking practices, and their failure only deepened the crisis,'' Mr. Wellstone said. ''Glass-Steagall was intended to protect our financial system by insulating commercial banking from other forms of risk. It was one of several stabilizers designed to keep a similar tragedy from recurring. Now Congress is about to repeal that economic stabilizer without putting any comparable safeguard in its place.''

Given the Bush economic meltdown last fall I find it amazing the GOP was able to get nearly half the vote. They got most of the middle class white vote too. THAT is proof of the Corporate media's immense power. They were able to spread toxic rightwing propaganda like the big banks were spreading toxic assets around the world.

Thom Hartmann, Progressive radio talk jock,   would agree with you partially. He says he beats Rush in many big cities.
BUT his total audience is very small compared to Rush's because most cities dont have  a Progressive radio station at all.   Boston and NYC for instance. Neither has ONE left wing radio station!  Thom says that often progressive stations are very weak signal stations too. 

 
A weak message and weak radio signal go hand-in-hand, if you're not getting the message to the people, what are you?! I don't listen to Rush, I don't listen to Thom, I don't listen to AirAmerica but what little I do hear from the left-wing media doesn't capture my imangination or attention at all. It comes across as whiney, paranoid, and frankly...hateful. More whiney, paranoid, and hateful than any right-wing message I've heard yet.

And one thing for sure: While toxic right-wing propaganda and toxic assets were getting spread around the world I never heard, not once, a cry from the left/democratic structure that the sky was falling. It was only after the financial pendulum swung in the other direction that anyone cried "foul" and started pointing fingers, that much is written in history. Hopefully we'll all learn from this epoch in time and find a nice middle point to work from to sort out the future..

Lincoln was one of the first Republicans,  but VERY Progressive. The GOP has changed a lot in 150 years. They  became intimate with big busness in about the 1870's.

They do NOT want you to know this but they have been AGAINST every social advance of the middle class, like Social security, minimum wages (they were actually for a MAXIMUM wage for workers), 40 hour work week, paid vacation,  Medicare, Medicaid, GI Bill for education, Civil Rights, womens vote and right to choose, and much, much more.  Their only true loyalty is and always has been the very rich and giant corporations.
