What would happen if Cheney were more senstive to the Washington press?

What would have happened if Cheney was more "sensitive" to the press?

Here's what American Thinker thinks.

It doesn't matter what Bush and Cheney do, they are always wrong as far as the Washington press are concerned.

Favorite Movies

I have favorite movies, usually based on one scene. This is my first shot at capturing some of those movies.

Patriot
A Mel Gibson movie. The unforgettable scene is when Gibson's character is spoken to by his youngest daughter, begging him not to leave.

We Were Soldiers
A Mel Gibson Movie. Mel Gibson's character imploring a journalist to write about how his troopers died.

Braveheart
Mel Gibson's character yelling freedom just before dying.

Courage Under Fire
Denzel Washington's character explaining to the parents of a soldier he killed, a close friend and their son.

October Sky
The son explaining to his dad who his real hero is.

Wicker Park
The final scene.

Just Married
The final scene.

Sleepless in Seattle
"She made everything beautiful."

Jerry Magwire
"You got me at hello"

Out of Africa
Beautiful movie, especially the scenes after Redford's character dies tragically.

Field of Dreams
When Costner's character asks his dad to play catch.

Somewhere in Time
Beautiful movie.

Bicentennial Man
A movie that could have focused on the technical aspects of such a possibility and instead focused on the "humanity" of a robot. Very touching. Very kind.

Forrest Gump
Asking if he could approach his son.

Another losing case for Global Warming, a junk science

Once again, Dr. Patrick Michaels shoots holes in Global Warming.

Why are the Global Warming advocates so selective about the data they choose to use?

The Journal Editorial Report on Fox

A dear friend, and frankly one of the smartest people I have ever known, recommended this show. I couldn't agree more.

A day or two later I see Hugh Hewitt also recommended the show.

Can't wait for Bryant Gumbel's comments on the NBA

It looks like Bryant Gumbel is getting desparate these days.

Here's the key quote: "So try not to laugh when someone says these are the world’s greatest athletes, despite a paucity of blacks that makes the Winter Games look like a GOP convention."

See for yourself.

Thank you, Mr. Gumbel. I don't laugh at the Winter Olympics anymore than I do at the NBA. The best succeed. Period.

Did you hear? Cheney shot somebody ...

Well, I can't wait any longer for Dick Cheney to personally call me and explain the hunting accident. I guess that puts me in the same group with David Gregory, one of NBC's "objective" reporters.

It was so predictable that the MSM would lose it over this. Cheney bad. Hunting bad. Guns bad. Repbulicans bad. How could it be any better? As usual, the the press corps. made fools out of themselves ... another day at the office for them. This was special, though, because they thought this was so clear cut and went all out.

This will subside and the press corps. will be on the lookout for the next "crisis" that requires Bush or Cheney to resign or be impeached. Guaranteed. These people are "stuck on stupid".

I thought Tony Blankley captured it best. BTW, check out the other columns at townhall.com. The MSM just gets skewered and they deserved it.

Ok, let me leave the children for now and talk about the adults in this whole affair. Cheney accidentally shot his friend with birdshot. Of course, he's going to feel bad. Notice how the press didn't give a damn about that. I also thought that Whittington's comments were so appropriate: they were kind to Cheney and devastating to the press.

I'd like to say this accident only increased my confidence in Cheney but it can't go any higher.
