 John Stossel is almost single-handedly responsible for whatever credibility ABC News has maintained since Brit Hume left for FNC.  Read Ethan Wallison's review of his new book, and see if it's not something you want to buy for your idiot relative to read.  
"Stossel is basically a Libertarian (he prefers "classical liberal"). He is also, as the book's title suggests, the "scourge" of liberal media. From his network perch, Stossel exposes viewers to a universe of depredations undertaken in "the public interest." It's an underground economy of lawyers, activists and other professional busybodies who enrich themselves (and one another) while harming the very people they purport to help. Journalists are the indispensable abettors. The only people who don't get to participate ordinary taxpayers pick up the tab." - NRO review of Stossel's book, "Give Me a Break: How I Exposed Hucksters, Cheats, and Scam Artists and Became the Scourge of the Liberal Media...

Chappa-Chutzpah of the day

- Ted Kennedy had observed the rescue attempts from the bridge, calling out, "Can you see her? Is she in there?" In the glow of the Valiant's headlights, Gargan saw the Senator stretched out on his back on the bridge. With his hands clasped behind his head, knees drawn up, Kennedy was looking into the sky, rocking back and forth, repeating, "Oh my God. What am I going to do? What am I going to do?"
"You have a Jim Rassmann, who was a Special Forces officer that was blown off John Kerry's small boat ...  When John Kerry turned that boat back and hauled Jim Rassmann out of the water, risking his own life, what he has said: We leave no one behind. He didn't leave Jim Rassmann behind. He won't leave veterans behind." - Senator Edward "Splash" Kennedy on CNN.

Easily explained. While Mary Jo served, she wasn't a veteran.

Bein' a war hero ain't no dagnabbed guarantee of continued patriotism after ambition kicks in. See: Kerry '71 or Benedict Arnold.

let's not forget about all the servicemembers he stabbed in the back when he came back and joined the protestors.

I hate to be his handlers when they wake up Kennedy tomorrow morning from his drunken stupor. When one of the three handlers tells Kennedy what he said today, there will hell to pay by that messenger of the bad news.

Ted Kennedy: Reasons #1 through #5,000 why I'm ashamed to be a Massachusetts resident and taxpayer.

As somebody once said, "Ted Kennedy looks like a Florida manatee dressed up in a suit." If for no other reason, Kerry's people won't let him campaign here in Florida where folks could get confused, especially those that live and (sometimes try to) vote in West Palm Beach.
