Marks Brent Bozell ‘Worst Person in the World’ – Again
“But the winner, Brent Bozell. Red Beard. Again. From the
rabid right spin machine, the Media Research Council. He has
targeted this show now for his latest 'MRC Action Alert.' You
know, sending us impotent emails that make everybody here
laugh. Our inbox now has literally dozens of them demanding
that we, quote, 'tell the truth about the WMD that were found
in Iraq.' Okay, we'll do it again. There weren't any, Rick
Santorum tried to pretend there were, and if you believed him,
you may actually be a sheep. Thanks for writing! Brent Bozell

York Times Pushes Far Left-wing Agenda
Steve Doocy: “You
say the New York Times is deliberately pushing a left-wing
Brent Bozell: “Well, I’m wrong. I should clarify it. It's
pushing a hard left-wing agenda, a far left-wing agenda. Look,
there are responsible left-wingers, just like there are
responsible right- wingers, but this goes far beyond the pale
of responsibility. Folks, we're in a war. This is akin to
divulging military secrets at a time of war. The left doesn't
do this type of stuff. The far left does, and that's what the
New York Times has joined.”
Hill: “Here's what I find interesting. You know, the
publisher of the New York Times argues, I let these reporters
print this, you know, article because it was in the public
interest. Even though there is no allegation of wrongdoing,
even though Democrats and Republicans were, were briefed on
it, even though Swift says they're following all the laws. You
know, there's no allegations of anything, in essence,
newsworthy, but he says it's in the public interest, so does
that mean there is any line that the New York Times would ever
see, uh, not crossing?”
Bozell: “Well, that's the point. If you're going to use
that excuse, then you can publish anything. Look, it's not in
the public interest to know what the United States government
is doing behind the scenes to stop these terrorists, if it has
to work behind the scenes. The public isn't clamoring know. I
don't want to know. If they have to remain, if it has to
remain a secret, then we keep it a secret. If there's an
oversight process, you engage the oversight process. All that
was in place. No one is questioning that, but the, you know, I
love the words of Secretary John Snow: Breathtaking arrogance.
That's exactly what this was.”

Shuster Confidently Reports that Karl Rove Will Be Indicted
“Well, Karl Rove's legal team has told me that they expect
that a decision will come sometime in the next two weeks. And
I am convinced that Karl Rove will, in fact, be indicted. And
there are a couple of reasons why. First of all, you don't put
somebody in front of a grand jury at the end of an
investigation, or for the fifth time, as Karl Rove testified a
couple -- a week and a half ago, unless you feel that`s your
only chance of avoiding indictment. So, in other words, the
burden starts with Secondly, it's now been 13 days since Rove
testified. After testifying for three and a half hours,
prosecutors refused to give him any indication that he was
clear. He has not gotten any indication since then, and the
lawyers that I’ve spoken with outside of this case say that if
Rove had gotten himself out of the jam, he would have heard
something by now.”

Open Mouth, Remove
"Well, sometimes when you’re trying to track a secret grand jury
investigation, the legal sources, the defense lawyers who have witnesses in
front of that grand jury, sometimes they get it wrong, and that seemed to be
the case in this particular case....The issue, they [defense lawyers] say,
though, is not that prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald concluded that the case was
unwinnable, rather that it was not a slam dunk."

would not be indicted.
Heads We Win, Tails
CBS’s Bob Schieffer: "I think it is still a warning shot for
Republicans. I mean, there’s just turmoil out there. The political landscape
is, you know, just going up and down here. You’ve got the corruption, you’ve
got this war in Iraq, all of these things, plus immigration which has split up
the Republican Party. So, who knows what’s going to happen? But this has to be
a sign to Republicans that they, they might lose the House, I
think. I mean, not just, I’m not just saying this, this particular race. But,

Schieffer: "Yeah. Yeah."

NBC’s Matt Lauer
Takes Great Offense at Ann Coulter’s Book, Godless
"Alright on the 9/11 widows and in particular a group that had
been outspoken and critical of the administration. 'These
self-obsessed women seem genuinely unaware that 9/11 was an
attack on our nation and acted as if the terrorist attack only
happened to them. They believe the entire country was required
to marinate in their exquisite personal agony. Apparently
denouncing Bush was an important part of their closure
process.' And this part is, is the part I really need to talk
to you about. 'These broads are millionaires lionized on TV
and in articles about them reveling in their status as
celebrities and stalked by grief-arazzis. I've never seen
people enjoying their husbands' death so much.'"
Ann Coulter: "Yes."
Lauer: "Because they dare to speak out?"
Coulter: "To speak out using the fact that they're
widows. This is the left's doctrine of infallibility. If they
have a point to make about the 9/11 commission, about how to
fight the war on terrorism. How about sending somebody we're
allowed to respond to? No, no we always have to respond to
someone who just had a family member die..."
Lauer: "But aren't they the people in the middle of the
Coulter: "...because then if we respond, 'Oh you're
questioning their authenticity.' No the story is..."
Lauer: "So grieve but grieve quietly."
Coulter: "No the story is an attack on the nation..."
Lauer: "And by the way..."
Coulter: "That requires a foreign policy response. That
does not entail the expertise..."
Lauer: "And by the way they also criticized the Clinton
administration for their failures leading up to 9/11."
Coulter: "Oh not, not the ones I'm talking about."
Lauer: "No they have."
Coulter: "No, no, no. Oh no, no, no, no."
Lauer: "But is your message to them just grieve..."
Coulter: "No, no they were cutting commercials for
Kerry. They were using their grief in order to make a
political point while preventing anyone from responding."
Lauer: "So if you lose a husband you no longer have the
right to have a political point of view?"
Coulter: "No but don't use the fact that you lost a
husband as the basis for your being able to talk about it
while preventing people from responding. Let Matt Lauer make
the point, let Bill Clinton make the point. Don't put up
someone I'm not allowed to respond to without questioning the
authenticity of their grief."
Lauer: "Well but apparently you are allowed to respond
Coulter: "Well yeah I did."
Lauer: "Right so in other words..."
Coulter: "But that is the point of liberal
infallibility. Of putting up Cindy Sheehan, of putting out
these widows of putting out Joe Wilson. No, no, no you can't
respond it's their doctrine of infallibility."
Lauer: "But what I'm saying is they've..."
Coulter: "...somebody else make the argument..."
Lauer: "I'm saying I don't think they've ever told you,
you can't respond. So why can't they make their point?"
Coulter: "Look you're getting testy with me."
Lauer: "No I'm not. I just..."
Lauer: "I think it's, I think it's, I think it's your
dramatic statement. 'These broads,' 'you know are, are
'millionaires stalked by grief-arazzi.'"
Coulter: "You think I shouldn't be able to respond to

deaths so much.'"
Coulter: "They're, they're, yes. They're all over the
Lauer: "The book is called Godless: The Church Of
Liberalism. Ann Coulter always fun to have you here."

NBC’s Matt Lauer
Laughs with Al Franken about Executing Bush Administration
"All right, Karl Rove and Scooter Libby what's their future?
What's your prediction in terms of indictments? Yes or no?"
Al Franken: "Oh they, they'll be indicted. I, I am
absolutely sure and this is about, of course, the war in Iraq
really. It's about the justification for the war and smearing
Joe Wilson by outing his wife who's a CIA agent. George H.W.
Bush, the President's father, said, as, when he was head of
the CIA, that outing a CIA agent is treason. I agree. So I
think that Rove and Libby will be executed."
Lauer laughed along with others in the studio: "That
