#1 Bush's fear-mongering resembles a version of INGSOC's Two Minutes (of) Hate, in which party members watch a video of legions of the enemy army marching behind a bleating political enemy.

Of course the only video we do get to see is laced with hatred of Bush and his works by the MSM. So who really is INGSOC? Anyone catch the now 'old' new pictures of Abu Ghrab and not the images of Mohammad? If you won't show one because it will 'inflame' why the other?

#2 This is more of that Lakoff drivel. "Framing" your ideas only works if you have actual ideas in the frame.

#4 It does not matter that the administration and, by extension, the Republican Party are only doing what is needed to hold on in November and again in the 2008 presidential election.

Insert the word "Democrat" where the word "Republican" is and this hack wouldn't have anything to say about it. And if he did, he would first get fired by his paper then audited by the IRS. What a fool.

#5 Let's see, this is the same Seattle Times that believes in counting the votes until a Democrat is elected? Considering the travesty that was perpetrated in King County during the last election, they really shouldn't toss around Orwellian comparisons. The Washington State Democratic Party is a thoroughly criminal organization that should be prosecuted through RICO.

#7 It's been said many times before by those much wiser than me, but I'll say it again here: if George W. Bush really is the second coming of Adolf Hitler, why hasn't Michael Moore been made into a lampshade.

#8 Complain all ya want folks, but I don't think the boy's gonna get canned...

It's not every day that a reporter with less than two years of experience becomes an editor, managing outlying bureaus at a state's biggest newspaper. But not every reporter is Ryan Blethen, son of Seattle Times publisher Frank Blethen...

Gee, thanks, Dad!

#11 And to think that the Seattle Times is the more rational of the two major local papers...
