Associated Press "Pay no attention to the Reid behind the curtain"

The AP:

"WASHINGTON - Aides to Sen. Conrad Burns, R-Mont., said Tuesday the senator will not return donations from indicted lobbyist Jack Abramoff and his associates, because the money has been spent.

Burns received about $150,000 in donations from Abramoff, his firm and his clients between 2001 and 2004.

North Dakota Sen. Byron Dorgan, the top Democrat on the Senate Interior Appropriations Subcommittee, said Monday that he is returning $67,000 in donations from the controversial lobbyist and his associates."

Fine, make him return it.....But fair is fair right?

So what about Senator Reid?

"Senate Democratic Leader Harry M. Reid (Nev.) sent a letter to Norton on March 5, 2002, also signed by Sen. John Ensign (R-Nev). The next day, the Coushatta Tribe of Louisiana issued a $5,000 check to Reid's tax-exempt political group, the Searchlight Leadership Fund. A second Abramoff tribe also sent $5,000 to Reid's group. Reid ultimately received more than $66,000 in Abramoff-related donations from 2001 to 2004."

Gee, would just about be $67,000....

I guess to be "Fair and Balanced", the AP should be asking Senator Reid when he plans to return his money? After all, "innocent" Democratic Sen. Byron Dorgan is paying back his $67,000. Tit-for-tat mate?

White they're at it, they could even cover some of these other stories as well.

Calling Mr. Fitzgerald?

**UPDATED AND BUMPED****

As I told you about in this post yesterday as a source confirmed to me that the Justice Department has launched a probe into the NSA leak. Mr. Risen, you are in trouble - prepare your defense. I told you so.

The White House will be announcing the probe at about 12:30pm. My source tells me that this probe will most likely result in another prosecutor being assigned as of course Fitzgerald is still busy/dizzy on the Plame/Game No-Leak. Additionally, other probes into other recent leaks such as the CIA 'prisons'leak is in the works as well. As I said, this is the NEW Bush - on the attack - it's no more Mr. Nice Guy!

About time! Also covering Michelle Malkin

UPDATE II: Looks like I owe my source big time as yet another tip comes true as the Washington Post is on the target list as well for the CIA Prison leak.

Newsbusters Busts the MSM on Bush Event

Newsbusters, the blog of Brent Bozell's Media Research Center, exposes the MSM attempt to spin President Bush's meeting with troops into a 'staged event'.

Truth is that the event was not staged, the troops were telling their real feelings: that they support the war and our President.

I guess they might have this story mixed up with the "planted question" to Sec. Rumsfeld back in December 2004.

Yet, that wasn't the case here, Soldiers when asked, will tell you the truth.

Just like in this picture, they tell it like it is!











Michelle Malkin has links to other reactions. Also Blogs for Bush.

UPDATE I: Michelle has a further reponse from one of the soldiers in the video. Here's an excerpt:

"First of all, we were told that we would be speaking with the President of the United States, our Commander-in-Chief, President Bush, so I believe that it would have been totally irresponsible for us NOT to prepare some ideas, facts or comments that we wanted to share …
