| Bush to blame for Hurricanes, Democrats to Ban Bible
From Talon :
Attempting to take political advantage of the devastating hurricanes that have hit Florida and the southeastern section of the United States in the past few weeks, liberal political action group MoveOn.org is saying that President George W. Bush is to blame for “making extreme weather stronger.”
Coincidentally, Space Daily criticised a recent conference of environmental experts for discussing a truly stupid idea.:
The group included noted skeptics Willie Soon and Sallie Baliunas of the George Marshall Institute in Washington, D.C., along with three state climatologists and several university professors, and focused on the recent hurricanes in the Gulf of Mexico.
In contrast, CBS is in a
Campaign literature mailed by the Republican National Committee warns voters in two states that the Bible will be prohibited and men will marry men if “liberals” win in November.

In an e-mail to supporters, MoveOn.org rhetorically asks “why such extreme weather” has taken place with Hurricanes Charley, Frances, and Ivan causing billions of dollars in property damage and loss of life.
As someone with multiple degrees in atmospheric physics, experience in climatology and operational meteorology, and atmospheric modeling…I can state unequivocally that the MoveOn statement is utter BS. The fact that the LLL would go on record with such nonsense says 2 things: the MoveOn organization is filled with people who have no more than an 8th grade understanding of science; and/or, the MoveOn organization is counting on the fact that their target audience is filled with people who have no more than an 8th grade understanding of science.

I can state unequivocally that the MoveOn statement is utter BS.
So can I. I don’t have multiple degrees of any sort. But when it’s coming from MoveOn.org (or the DU, or lately CBS), I’ll assume it’s a lie until there is objective, verifiable evidence otherwise.

This morning the AP had a story headline by Jennifer Loven. The headline was ‘Bush twists Kerry’s words on Iraq’. That demanded a call to the Milwaukee AP office, since they backed up the ‘booing’ story from here. I got a very defensive young aspiring journalist girl, who took the ‘home office did it’ defense. This afternoon I notice that the headline has now changed to ‘Bush AND Kerry twist each others words’…. ha ha ha

I can now hear them now at the mornig staff meetings at the various MSM offices ending with a stern warning to all the journalists and reporters, “Remember, there are now thousands of editors and experts out there just waiting for you to show your bias and poor research work… you all be real carful out there!”
I even read it in the Time magazine article about the screw up at CBS. The author correcty reported that the bloggers quickly pointed out that the superscrip “th” was not available on type writers in the 70s. Then the article’s writer added the statement, “… which has since been proven to be false.” What a bunch of hog wash showing their bias with such a snide statement! The author did not state that even though the superscript “th” was available on a very limited number of typewriters, it is doubtful that a NG office would have had one of these available to them owing to the cost and difficulty in using.
The era of eliteist, lazy and incompetent journalism is now ending, hopefully… but we have to be vigilant.

The original story I was mentioning above was noted on the Powerline site. So, I am sure I was not the only person protesting AP’s biased story. It is downright laughable when AP changes the headline…now its ”Bush, Kerry, twist each others words” Seems the pajamadeen started gathering info on poor Jenny and her Clinton Admin. husband named Ballentine. No wonder she got that headline changed before the spotlight of the wired world got on her. They sold a house in Washington last year….half way down on the following page; I found it interesting what little amount of house you get for $501,000
