one peek at this story and your nose will fill with an odor you’ll
instantly recognize - Democrat Party Politics. It does, indeed, smell
like last Friday’s garbage.
“Today’s Washington Post
carries a story about a “curious case in the annals of the FBI,” but
the only curious aspect of the story is why the Post published it — with
the headline FBI considered a sting aimed at Newt Gingrich in 1997.
That implies that the arguable GOP frontrunner for President had
committed some sort of conduct that was shady enough to get the FBI to

second- and third-hand conversations alleging that the top man in

Times’ execrable Vicki Iseman hit job on John McCain just after he
cinched the nomination. It’s a hit job aimed at a Republican candidate
that wouldn’t have passed the smell test in a newsroom had the
politician in question been a Democrat.”
Dell’s Bottom Line: It’s a “curious case in the annals of the FBI”???
Get Out Of Here With That Garbage!
