How did we get into this mess?

Why are we here? - Uh, well I'll save the answer to that one for another day. Seriously, why was Rather doing way more than his usual biased stuff to aid the Dems.

Simple - campaign finance reform.

There are certain things the parties and independent groups cannot do within 60 days of the end of the campaign.

Who is exempt from the rules? News organizations. (As defined by law - I'm sure Beldar could tell us what the law means).

So what do you do if you want to skirt(flout) the law? Viola, you use a news organization as a part of your campaign team.

If we really want to fire some one over this we need to go after the guys in Congress who voted for this abomination and the guy who signed it into law. Bush. Oh wait. He's my guy. Well never mind. I guess Rather can keep his job. Both are equally culpable and we need Bush for the war.

Oh well.

Let us not waste our time on Rather, we have bigger fish to fry.
