Note: As promised, I'll be writing later today and tomorrow about how John Murtha's use of "earmarks' (taxpayer funded projects directed to his district) do long-term harm to the Johnstown, PA area and to the nation.
The MSM has only a tangential relationship to relationship. Some fascinating things are happening, but the media, committed to stereotypes and repetition, is the last to know.
For example, the U.S. is winning the war against al Qaeda in Iraq, something that has escape the attention of many reporters. Also, John McCain, whose candidacy was long ago left for dead by many political journalists, is now running second (to Rudy Giuliani). These are important developments, but somehow the MSM seems oblivious to the implications.
As the U.S. position improves in Iraq, there are tremendous implications for the success of the Republican presidential nominee, for the Party's capacity to raise money, and for conservative candidates to win contested elections.
RUSSELL SUPPORTER? YOU'RE INVITED . . .
Please be advised we will have a dinner/meeting on Thursday, 15 November, to welcome William Russell to Johnstown. As you all know Lieutenant Colonel Russell is challenging john murtha in Pennsylvania's 12th Congressional District.

Please be advised you do not have to attend the dinner in order to attend the meeting and you are certainly welcome to attend the meeting only.
If you will be attending please e-mail me by Wednesday, 14 November, and let me know if you will be attending the dinner/meeting or just the meeting so I can ensure we reserve enough space.
Also, I encourage you to forward this e-mail to other supporters of LTC Russell since I do not have the e-mail addresses of all of my good bootmurtha friends. I look forward to seeing you on 15 November.
