Since the failed car bomb plot was uncovered in London the cable news networks have gone wall to wall terror. "Hardball" host, Chris Matthews brought in DNC Communications Director, Karen Finney to discuss the politics of terror with her counterpart from the RNC. Finney makes quick work of the RNC hack, slapping down her talking points about the Iraq war the second they spewed from her mouth. This is exactly how you deal with right wing spin and lies -- come armed with the truth and never back down.
Major kudos to the DNC for hiring Finney, they could use a few more just like her.
John Amato: I usually like to wait a bit before I post anything about these attacks because the wall to wall coverage on teevee is so full of idiotic speculation. I found this quote quite interesting though:
Londoners seemed relatively unfazed by the news. People crowded onto buses and subway trains during the afternoon rush hour, shopping streets were busy and sidewalk cafes did brisk business.
"Sure, it's disturbing, and obviously it reminds everyone of 7/7," said Ian Hiskos, 32, eating at a cafe across the block from the police cordon on Haymarket. "I try not to think about these things."
That's not the attitude the bed-wetting wingnutosphere embraces or one Rudy can run on...
