Walter Cronkite said What?
Walter Cronkite retired some two decades ago as the voice of CBS Evening News, as the most trusted human in America. He is now 87 years of age, and he has a lot of things to say. Friday night, the former most trusted in America was asked about the Osama Bin Laden tape. The interviewer was Larry King. Cronkite told Larry King that he is "inclined to think that Karl Rove, the political manager at the White House, who is a very clever man, he probably set up bin Laden to this thing."
Walter Cronkite is a liberal, and his news reports about Vietnam tanked the Johnson administration. He lives near Marthaís Vineyard most of the year, in the heart of Kerry Territory. But this remark is beyond reprehensible. Does Mr. Cronkite actually believe that Osama Bin Laden takes orders from Karl Rove? Larry King said nothing to attempt to clarify this horrid statement. Maybe he agrees with this putrid, vitriolic, sick, evil garbage!
The entire notion that George Bush or Karl Rove would commit treason is an anathema. Contumacious as the liberatzis have been since the outset of this campaign, this is a new low. This is right up there with Madeline Albrightís Green-Room allegation that our President was holding on to Bin Laden in some secret prison in order to bring him out in the ultimate October Surprise. These people appear to have met the DSM IV definition of paranoid.
I personally think that this is a byproduct of the same sort of desperation seen by hundreds of vandalism and shoot-up incidents directed at Bush supporters and offices. As I watch the poll wraps at www.realclearpolitics.com, I realize that the trend has, wigth a few hiccups has been breaking towards Bush, breaking the alleged "precedents" of the Nick kidsí vote and the Redskins Jinx (If the redskins lose their last home game before the election, the incumbent is supposed to lose).
I am not superstitious. I am merely confident in the intelligence of the American People. Please, PLEASE VOTE! Vote Bush! Forget if you think that your vote will not matter in your state, VOTE! We need to give our president a pollster-humiliating landslide!
Oh, and by the way, we induct Walter Cronkite into our Hall of Shame.
