Political Trash and The "Garbage-In" Syndrome

George Soros is claiming to refrain from politics and put more energy into policy, what ever that means.



September 29, 2006 --

Billionaire liberal financier George Soros, who spent millions of his fortune trying to oust President Bush in 2004, yesterday said he hopes to stay out of politics from now on. "In the future, I'd very much like to get disengaged from politics," Soros said at a Council on Foreign Relations meeting on the Upper East Side. "I'm interested in policy and not in politics."

So does this mean we can stop tracking all the money Georgie? This would be one of the biggest blows to the democratic party since they put Howard Dean in charge of the money-machine, but don't expect Soros to exit politically. His dollars just may not be so transparent. And how does George intend to go about influencing policy?

Woodward Watch

DAVID E. SANGER at the Al-New York Times gets to throw the first punch at the president in a preview of Bob Woodward's book of horrors:

WASHINGTON, Sept. 28 The White House ignored an urgent warning in September 2003 from a top Iraq adviser who said that thousands of additional American troops were desperately needed to quell the insurgency there, according to a new book by Bob Woodward, the Washington Post reporter and author. The book describes a White House riven by dysfunction and division over the war.

The warning is described in State of Denial, scheduled for publication on Monday by Simon & Schuster. The book says President Bush's top advisers were often at odds among themselves, and sometimes were barely on speaking terms, but shared a tendency to dismiss as too pessimistic assessments from American commanders and others about the situation in Iraq.

The only people in a "State of Denial" are liberal minions such as BW, and media whores who deny that we are in a war. A war in which our enemy has no rules, no uniforms, and so filled with hatred and jeolousy of our prosperous (insert economic news) love for life.

Side-note: Because BW says it's true, then it must be gospel. Right! This ought to keep the left and the MSM busy for weeks publishing excerpts from Woody's book, while he is laughing all the way to the bank. The only problem is Woodward is just a glorified Micky Moore. Woodward thinks this is still seventies where when it was "written" there were no challenges to the truth. Fake but accurate ring a bell? We won't have to waste a dime on his book, the MSM will publish all the pertinent stuff. Keep feeding the terrorist-machine Bob, it's your patriotic duty.
