    There was one other one that I saw that was even more succinct IMHO. It said:

    I have several friends who hate Fox News but like CNN. In my effort to be open-minded & well informed, I occasionally flip over to CNN. It’s usually a mistake, just like it was a few minutes ago. (Don Lemon should be fired.) While I was watching, I saw something on the crawl about “false ad by Fox.” I went to to check it out, & gosh! I really wish I hadn’t. In the course of the text, there are some links to CNN’s “coverage” of the March on DC. One video report was actually pretty good; another one said that in all of that reporter’s coverage of Tea Party events all over the country, the main topics of conversation are death panels, concentration camps, & I forget what-all, but I’ve been to some Tea Party events & I never hear about that stuff unless I’m watching CNN or MSNBC (which I also check out, just to see what they’re up to). The link that was supposed to send the reader to our “in-depth reporting” simply went back to the top of the piece I was reading. I guess that should actually make me feel BETTER, but somehow it just doesn’t. Then, after trying to watch the Rick Sanchez video & having to stop it before my head exploded, I read a comment that said, basically, how GREAT Rick Sanchez is, & oh, well. . . I just came over here to ventilate. This isn’t the first time I’ve done this, & I really will try to stop, but sometimes I feel so alone, being conservative & whatnot. I really wish I had gone to the March on DC. There were a couple of pieces on American Thinker that were so beautiful, I cried.

    My favorite sign was the one with MLK – “He had a dream” & BHO – “We got a nightmare.”

    Then – THEN – they had Bill Richardson talking about Joe Wilson’s “You lie” snafu & the racism toward the illegal aliens. Oh, good grief.

    Thank God for David Horowitz, David Swindle, & all the folks who can tolerate this stuff 24/7. What would we do without them?

      You are so right I have marched in all the parades and was in our state capital for the 912 Rally and didn’t hear any of that stuff. I do believe the so called progressives think these things up in their nightmares…. I also keep listening to them tout how we talk about Death panels don’t they think we can remember that when Palin spoke out about them the next week they took them out of the bill. Now they want us to forget and act as if they never tried to hide them there.

    The march on Washington was a breathe of fresh air.

    Reading the signs, shirts, etc. is as much fun as the super bowl advertisements.

    I think we should do it again. If nothing else, just to irritate the left.
