    There are already reports on old scandals, but if there is any new scandal it will either be

    1. Reported in 2 - weeks til 1 months if it is by another Republican, for instance Mitt Romney
    2. Reported after the nomination if it is from Democrats
    3. Never reported if all skelectons are revealed.

    Nope, simply that these stories were broken by the media, like everything else.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Grim still can't figure out that this "liberal media" talk is just nonsense. Remember when Fox News questioned whether a fist bump between Barack and Michelle was a "terrorist fist jab"?



    You have to be ****ing kidding. Grim is mad because news organizations are covering a story about sexual allegations and accusing the media of being biased... just wait after the election Grim, that's when it really gets fun.

    Having to resort to that word is usually an example of being the same as what you are accusing someone else as being and there are better terms to use than this. I am saying this to you as a Person.

    Wow, I've seen few posts filled with more incorrect information and fail than this one.

    Lets see you've got....one questionablely correct one in regards to Falwell (and really, he was more known for bigotry then abject racism), and three just just horrible incorrect statements.

    I started to reply, but then I thought, if anyone can't see the stupid of the words in that post, there's nothing I can say to make a difference.
    I may be wrong.

    Really Digs? Are you honestly this ignorant. "Many" media outlets "exist" to protect and attack the opposition. That's kind of funny...I'm trying to think of what media outlets came into creation AO (After Obama) and I'm seemingly coming up empty. Could you please highlight which media outlets exactly "exist" to protect him?

    No reason for that kind of hyperbole, especially when you have a situation where you can make a case the Obama coverage in 2008 was fawning by many media outlets, the generalized coverage the Republican Primary is getting is more akin to what should be happening. The Media didn't force Michelle Bachmann to be involved with a Pray the Gay Away type of clinic. The Media didn't force Perry to be ****tacular at debates. The Cain issue was most likely floated out by a Republican rival then any media entity and was reasonable to report on.

    And when there's an entire wing of "news-like entertainment" media on the right aimed at doing nothing but ACTUALLY protecting one side and attacking the other, to the point of going on about ridiculous things like the Birther issue and the fact his middle name is Hussien, my ability to get frothy because the Media's reporting on sexual harassment charges or the latest Bachmann comment is a bit reduced.

    Find? They just have to reprint some of the old stories to remind people... you know how he left his cancer ridden wife for another woman, his many divorces, his connections to shady business deals and so on and so on..
