Go Cheney Cheney

This week the Liberal Talk Show Hosts had a field to themselves with the Cheney shooting incident in Texas.

Sadly, only a few of them made decent use of the chance of a lifetime.

If one talks about missed opportunities, this was the week.

The top two hosts did not miss a trick. But the others just prattled on without any focus.

Talk about the Democratic Party being in disarray - the majority of Liberal Talk Show Hosts appear to be even worse.

This was not the time to play around. This was the time to be deadly serious and bring the country around.

Here was the time to demand accountability not only of the Executive but also the compliant politicians, but also a sleep-walking media.

Thom Hartmann also missed a golden opportunity when he was talking to Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney. Just when she had told him how she had quoted him on the House Floor and she had been struck out of order for quoting Thom, Thom went for a commercial break - and when he got back there was no Congresswoman around!
