Personal Aside: The Cone of Silence has Descended.
Cone of Silence.
The official cone of silence has descended on the liberal media to underscore the prediction made here that the Obama statement about the lives of dead servicemen in Iraq being wasted will not receive coverage as a protection for the candidate. The Tribune, always solicitous that somehow it may not be considered an establishment publication, made sparing reference to it. If it was in The New York Times, I didnt see it in my Midwest edition. It is a very great tribute that Lynn Sweet in the Sun-Times did give it much attention, in line with the fact that while her interests are deeply on the side of Obama, she is too good a journalist to allow this to pass.
However there should be no concern that this is the last you will hear of the astounding gaffe. The speech has been filmed and is in the can. It is in the possession of the Hillary people as well as the Republicans and you will be hearing and seeing it again and again if the need arises in the same manner that the Swift Boats turned the tide in the last election.
