Poor Coverage

I find it hard to believe how miserable the coverage has been of Ariel Sharon's speech at Baruch College yesterday. The hecklers who infiltrated the auditorium, and the smallish (at least as compared to predictions of 20,000) group of protesters outside became the whole story, at least according to most major publications.
Michael over at the Slippery Slope attended the speech, and has a lot to say about the hecklers from the ZOA, and the gloating letter they subsequently sent around.

Isn't that always the case? The bad behavior of a few will always trump any other story.

between Laura Bush's hecklers in Jerusalem and Ariel Sharon's hecklers at Baruch, I just had to flip the radio off last night. I couldn't take listening to it all.

Who says that there is an end. Its all a continuum, that ebbs and flows, but never ends.

He's sly, that dovbear guy. He has a roomful of idiots (myself included) slobbering to each other about the scotch they like for the past hour.

I lurked for a while, then got bored. The more someone talks about his Johnny Walker Blue the more convinced I always am that he has never had any.

Pass me the crown and a few slices of salami.

The Tax Return Crack-Up<3>
Granted, there are usuallyMicrosoft Office 2010write-ups when presidential contenders make their tax returns available, but the coverage falls far short of the Office 2010
