    What she did last night, was to show how believable the 'fake' story really was. Watch the video and watch John Bolton at about the 2:00 minute mark you'll see why.
    To anyone who had below average intelligence... she also blamed her ineptitude on Beck, which I see you glossed over... most likely because you bought it hook, line and sinker.

    You really should go past the snarky headline to see if that it's really true.

    Tell THAT to Madcow. I watched the video, what loved is how smug she was only to be slapped down.

    Do you always use schoolyard names for people you don't like?

    If I can get away with it (and sometimes even if I can't). There's something about Madcow that just breeds contempt.

    You're right. The proper term is "gender confused".

    I think most people who watch her are initially confused about that.

    I don't think it's right or appropriate to subtly bash Maddow for being a lesbian. She isn't gender confused, she's a lesbian woman. Yes she did wrong by jumping on a story that attacked Palin and conservatives. I'm not going to pretend that Maddow doesn't have anti-conservative bias or seeks to make Palin and conservatives look bad, this is what 99% of political opinion shows do. However, she did admit to her mistake. However, let's not make fun of her for being a lesbian, nor should we make fun of those who support her or watch her shows. It's not good for rational debate and discussion.

    Have you not seen some of the stuff written here about Rush and Glenn Beck?
