Democrats Hold Emergency Closed Door Meeting to Determine What the Media Wants Them to Say

"Folks, just tell us what you need," Reid asks journalists.

"You should each have a piece of paper in front of you and a #2 pencil. Simply circle the words you would like to hear me say tomorrow on the Senate floor."



Below is a portion of Reid's "multiple-choice speech" reviewed and edited by media today:

The war in Iraq continues to [make historic progress / alienate and anger the entire world]. Our President has demonstrated [epic hubris / gritty determination] in his effort to carry out this [unjust war / noble effort.]

The Senate Democratic leadership will continue to [demand the truth / support the President wholeheartedly] as we pray for the troop's [safe return / humiliation they so richly deserve.]

It's [clear / impossible to know] now that Saddam Hussein [did / did not] have weapons of mass destruction. However, no one can [deny / confirm] that this undertaking was [the right / the wrong] thing to do.

We want to make sure that the Iraqi people know that we're [on their side / going to leave very soon.] And, if you're like me, you think there has not been enough attention paid to [positive achievements / Abu Ghraib]......cont'd

Why not "arguments and responses" to the left? "Rants and Reactions" sounds like what everybody else does; the idiotic and sensible, alike. In your writing, you strike me as intelligent enough to know that among the myriad problems with the right and the left is a comlete absence common sense; the absence of understanding that there are good, reasonable points in both schools of thought that are disregarded because of "agenda," whatever that means.
