C'mon Charlie, you completely overlooked this story, the top story of the day.

WASHINGTON: A former Republican congressman was sentenced to 2 1/2 years in prison for trading political favors for golf trips, campaign donations and other gifts in the Jack Abramoff lobbying scandal.

Rep. Bob Ney, the first congressman convicted in the federal bribery investigation involving lawmakers, their aides and Bush administration officials, pleaded guilty in October to conspiracy and making false statements. Democrats last year campaigned against what they said was a Republican "culture of corruption" as they won control of both houses of Congress.

The six-term lawmaker, who once chaired the powerful House Administration Committee, accepted golf and gambling trips, tickets to sporting events, free meals and campaign donations arranged by Abramoff and his associates.

The Democrats are back!

The sentence was harsher than recommended by prosecutors, Huvelle said, because Ney had violated the trust placed on him as a public official. "Both your constituents and the public trusted you to represent them honestly," she said.

Charlie, Jay, DJ, Lorie, Paul, Kevin, Jim, Kim, et.al do not have to share the news of Bob Ney, the number of dead soldiers in Iraq, etc. to their readers. These stories are fully covered, and covered, and covered by the major networks & major rags daily, hourly, sometimes every few minutes.

Most WIZBANG readers like myself, come to this site to find the news and the links/sources of such news the mainstream media chooses not to share with the public.

I do not have the time to come here or to liberal blogs to argue with people who are not going to change their minds on most political issues, any more than I will change my mind. In checking this site, usually once a day, I have not found the postings of Lee, jp2, nogopostal, hugh, etc. to have altered the opinions of the authors of this blog, (nor many of its regular readers) even once.

Is there not more constructive things one can do with one's time than constantly ranting at the authors of blogs--i.e., tutor a child; volunteer to keep some single mom's kids why she works; teach English to an immigrant; collect food for the poor; work a second job & pay for someone's medicine or electric bill, etc. etc.

Frankly I shocked as well Lee.

But the "real story" is how did you land a Editor-in-Chief position at Wizbang? It must be so considering you attempt to dictate what is written here on so many occasions.

That is an Editor-in-Chief's role correct? So what's the pay Lee? What does Kevin think you're worth?

I mean as Editor-in-Chief, not as useful tool that can be counted on in dragging the topic away from the topic.

NOTE to Kevin: I'm totally shocked Lee scored this position after not having enough courage to submit a post during the Holiday LEFTEST FREE-FOR-ALL.

Top story of the day Lee?

A former Republican..

..accepted golf and gambling trips, tickets to sporting events, free meals and campaign donations arranged by Abramoff and his associates.

Holy Shit! Stop the podcasts! Thank goodness that there's no such lobbying for Democrats, right? Minus the operative word "Abramoff", right? And that Democrats are immune to such a temptation? Gimme a fuckin' break already.

Top story my ass. Get your own blog so no one will read it, or better yet, start your own radio scrub that might get listened to and won't be able to garner advertising dollars in a fair manner.

Again, please, Kevin, will you format the comments section here where the persons posting have their handle at the top of the comment - easing our ability to grab the scrollbar and move on.

On a serious note - the only worthy left leaning commenter here has not written a 'Wizbang Blue' article, and that's too bad. You know who you are.

snowballs:

1) on Mark Steyn;

I don't agree with the idea that more births by [x] means anything. Freedom, as defined by America's founding fathers, supersedes any primitive teachings. Simple - sure, but don't count it out, even If "youth" is at fault.

2) Ted Kennedy needs to go away. Why? Because he's a bandwagon [insert bullshit artist euphemism here] politician.

He's said that "there were no WMDs", in not so many words, as a fact - which we all know is simply an assertion, even if you believe one way or another. Hell, that argument is 4, no, 15+ years old. Massachusetts needs a better representative.


3) Hillary - actually, she's right, with the exception of the term of "redeployment". But she does talk about threats, which, for me (I'm with the hawks here) earns merit.

She actually speaks in a serious tone about Iraq, which includes the part about standing-up of the Iraqi government.

4) Who gives a fuck what 'Kos' thinks about anything? In his own words, 'Fuck em'. This message is important, particularly when Bush speaks about our economy, which is a resilient mechanism representing what we all are. BTW, none of you dems can tell me that if you agree at all with anything Kos says, his glory does not depend upon a division of America.

5) The Vietnam analagy is only used nowadays by politial figures, and our vets who were part of that era are American heroes, period. It was a different fight - and they fought proudly for our freedoms, and in my young opinoin, it was worth it. God bless them.

Lee:

Here's another bit of interesting news, overlooked by Charlie in his attempt to make a nice, clean, safe place for conservatives to lie to themselves.

More Jurors on Standby in CIA Leak Trial

A federal judge is putting more potential jurors on standby in the CIA leak trial because so many people have been dismissed, mostly because of strong feelings against the Bush administration and the Iraq war.

Sad state of affairs, when a guy has trouble getting a fair trial because they can't find enough unbiased jurors.

...but back to the really important stuff. Let's not forget a post or two about Barack Hussein Obama, because everyone knows that Barack Hussein Obama is just plain evil.

No wonder conservatives want to surround themselves with lies about Nancy Pelosi, and lies about Jamil Hussein. The reality is that the role and position of conservative Americans in our body politic today has been reduced to that of childish whiners, standing on the side of the road throwing rocks at the passing motorcade of progress.

No one speaks for you, and any thinking Republican in office today knows they have to distance themselves from you in order to save their political lives. Under these circumstances, the warm blanket of lies and misdirection provided by conservative bloggers today must be quite comforting.

I see old "pucker puss" (lee lee) (resident turd polisher) is back and he still has his ditto key.
p'p' at least Ney dosen't "freeze" his "gifts"
Also p'p' I don't believe I saw anyone mention old "elephant ears". Tell us one "lie" that is not true about the "Tuna Lady". Yeah we like to throw rocks instead of kissing ass like you.

Disingenuous or flat out uncomprehending what you read Lee. Which is it?

You left out the reason why a jury is difficult to seat. Most have been tossed because of having Bush Derangement Syndrome.

Wait there's third option... despicable troll.

No, I didn't. It was right there in the quote.

Your "Lee Derangement Syndrome" must have blinded you to the simple english words right there on the page in front of you.

Lee:

"Just a prime example of how unimportant the vast majority of your comments are."

"They are now worth reading to the end."

The part of my comment you highlighted appeared after the relevant quote you missed -- so it had nothing to do with reading to the end.

You using your mouth as a shovel, Marc, must be awfully tiring, but keep digging if you wish. A few more lies and mindless attacks and you'll be promoted to junior cadet troll, and jhow66 will take you under his wing,
