HomePoliticsDecision Time for the Dems Decision Time for the Dems Paul July 21, 2004 Politics 7 Comments The Dems have a problem. They have to decide if they are going to the mat for Sandy Bergler or not. Consider all the permutations running thru my mind: September Surprise? New York Times Tofu Bergers Related Posts January 2nd a Day of Mourning for President Ford In which I shred any self-respect I might once have possessed… “To jaw-jaw is always better than to war-war.” About The Author Paul 7 Comments Brad July 21, 2004 You overestimate the mendacious media’s ability to overtly ignore news which falls outside their worldview. Tom July 21, 2004 Tin Foil Hat Time Berger has left the papers at Kerry headquarters where they are mysteriously found on Wednesday of next week. This throws the convention into turmoil, and the decision is made to drop Kerry. Whom do they turn to at this late stage? …. The Clintons are the masters of the game. Paul July 21, 2004 Brad- Maybe- But I don’t think that is going to happen. Pre-FoxNews/ Blogosphere – maybe. But I don’t think they will get away with it. Tom, I like the way you think. 😉 That would make a hell of a story huh? Glad you gave us that tin foil hat warning though. 😉 Paul July 21, 2004 Hmmm- What if the Dems turned on Clinton and said Bergler was covering for him? Nah. Brad July 21, 2004 The media has ignored multiple “non-stories” despite the blogosphere’s din. The blogosphere seems a bit like shouting into a tin can – most people still rely on the major news outlets. The questions that ought to be asked most likely won’t, and this story, as the Joe Wilson story, will fade away as nothing more than a quaint, quirky, almost amusing, anecdote. Paul July 21, 2004 But there is one thing that is more important to these people than even their bias. FAME. They want to be the one to bring down a name. Besides a few good questions from Carl Cameron (spelling?) and the cat is out the bag. Patience grasshopper. michele July 21, 2004 The only wrinkle in the “he did it to help Kerry” end of the story is that when the alleged pants stuffing occurred, Berger had no way of knowing that Kerry would be running for president or that he would be Kerry’s political adviser. However, the latest conspiracy gaining ground is that Hillary leaked the story to further her agenda of a brokered convention.
