Pirro vs Clinton

We know that Pirro is going up against Hillary in '06 for the New York Senate seat. I'm rooting for Pirro, but that probably goes without saying. The AP just reported that Hillary got a fund raising letter at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. from Jeannine Pirro. The AP goes on to report the contents of the letter and makes it appear that it was either done purposely or out of stupidity and doesn't, until the end of the article, say that Pirro's campaign manager said the fundraising appeal was sent because someone registered the information on Pirro's campaign Web site. Not that it was definately because someone registered Hillary to get the letter, but her campaign manager "said" it was.

C'mon. We all know someone played a joke and it was funny, I'll admit, but definately not such a newsworthy item that AP should be reporting on it. This is anything BUT newsworthy. How trifling can a major news source get? Well, it WAS the AP after all.

Clinton's spokesman Howard Wilson said, "No wonder Ms. Pirro raised so little money," and said the letter was forwarded to Clinton's Senate office. Can you say "Petty Asshole"?

While Jeannine Pirro goes to the heart of the people asking for donations, Clinton can keep doing her special Hollywood Galas for the big bucks. In the end most of Hollywood can't vote for her in the Senate race and who will determine whether or not she keeps her seat? - New Yorkers. Not the fancy pants, liberal, self-aggrandizing big mouths in Hollywood.

“Hold on there a minute! I was gone all day yesterday. I was not feeling well (hungover). Was Greg/MG back? And all his comments deleted or something? WAH! I missed it.”

I had commented that David Schippers, the guy who prosecuted Clinton at his impeachment hearings, is trying to get the word out that former Iraqi soldiers, who were repatriated to the U.S. after the first Gulf War, were involved in the OK City bombing. Schippers is a heavy weight, but he is getting nowhere until the neocon blogs run with the story.
You can hear Mr. Schippers talk about this subject at:

Look ... I've never been one to take anything Alex Jones says with anything more than a grain of salt. I will also readily admit that there is truly such a thing as a "conspiracy". It just gets a little hard to swallow one "conspiracy" after another as Jones and his pals seem to spin them off faster than I can change my socks.

If there is in fact a conspiracy going on in Oklahoma, it needs to be handled with secrecy and very carefully. It's possible they DO "smell" something. But, we have laws in this country that keep us from flying off the handle and indicting everyone and their brother with nothing more substantiating than our olefactory prowess.

That said, I'll believe it when I see it. If there's a blogger out there close to the happenings in OK, he/she will come forward. The LAST thing I'd do as a blogger would be to run with this outlandish story without having a clue to the innerworkings of any town or anyone in OK nor any way to glean such information from a reliable source. Alex Jones just doesn't fit that bill. When I think of Alex Jones, I think of National Enquirer type headlines.

You're right about Alex Jones being quick to jump on consiracy theories.
But that's not true of Mr. Schippers. Jones tries to stear Schipppers, but Schippers is no slouch and easily goes head to head with Jones.
Do yourself a favor, FORGET ALEX JONES and listen to what MR. SCHIPPERS SAYS ABOUT IT.
He has been representing an OK City newswoman who has been on this story since 1995.
