And if a Democratic Criminal Had Been Arrested For Bugging the Office of a Republican Senator…?

A screen shot of the front page of the Houston Chronk‘s website from just a few minutes ago:

The lead item? An item praising a child molestation ringleader for telling his underlings to go forth and blog.

Next to that? Flowers.

Below Joe the Rat? Whining from Toyota and an anti-Obama hit piece about the stimulus.

Then a local Amber Alert and then an item about a local police shooting.

THEN………………………

A hero of conservatives who bruised the liberal group ACORN by posing as a pimp on hidden camera is now accused in an attempt to tamper with phone lines at Democratic U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu’s office inside a federal building.

I can already hear Faux News calling even that evidence that the (non-existent) lib-rul media is anti-Republican.

O’Keefe’s father, James O’Keefe, Jr., of Westwood, N.J., said he hasn’t spoken to his son in several days and didn’t know he traveled to New Orleans, let alone why he went to Landrieu’s office.

“That would not be something that I can even imagine him doing,” he said of the allegations against his son. “I think this is going to be blown out of proportion.”

O’Keefe said his son travels frequently for speaking engagements.

“He’s a good kid,” he said. “He’s a very talented, very creative creative guy.”

Arguably, so was G. Gordon Liddy…

…in that 1972 sort of way.

Now, yes, farther over to the right side was a link to the bugging a bit higher up the page, but still…

explain to me why, on a day when a story like the illegal infiltration of the office of a United States senator hits, Joe the Rat’s picture is visible at all on a legit news website?  (Yes, I suppose that if he suddenly went horizontal that would justify it – but, unless I missed something, that wasn’t what the top story was about because that hasn’t happened.)

Oh…

Think I’m just picking on a paper from the Bush Junta’s (alleged) home state?  Try CNN:

Oh, its  there – but you might manage to find Waldo (or think you’ve done so) before you do find it.

    I think this is more concerning:

    “According to information Dai posted in September 2007 on the university’s online alumni directory, he lived in Naperville, Ill., helped run a “Defense Deparment regional defense counterterrorism/irregular warfare program” and then became assistant director of the Intelligence Community Center of Academic Excellence at Trinity Washington University, which prepares undergraduates for careers in intelligence.”

    Concerning both for the possibility of a much larger group involved in this – and for the level of ineptitude of in the execution of the operation if this person actually has some training as an operative. Stunningly inept operation. I really hope people this inept were weeded out of the program.
