Another One From Michelle Malkin

Tom Brokaw is all upset about the mean, mean bloggers waiting to criticize him.

Let me state the obvious. Again. The press is forever puffing itself as the national watchdog. They pompously spout off about how they provide a vital role in keeping our democracy relatively clean, and fostering the national debate.

But again and again, these whiny, arrogant bitches complain when any outside scrutiny whatsoever is cast upon them. They apparently claim to be the only institution in America capable of self-policing, and furthermore that any attempt of outside policing consists of something very close to an unconsitutional "chilling of their First Amendment rights."

I'm trying to curse less now, but I feel a stream of vicious profanity just dying to get out. But I won't.

I just cannot. Understand. The arrogance.

I don't understand how someone can go through their lives with such arrogance, condescension, hypocrisy, and feeling of entitlement and never once question it.

They don't question themselves-- ever. Others they question, and when they do, they clap themselves on the back for "daring" to ask the tough questions (as if this were Cuba, which, by the way, they're big fans of, mostly).

But when you presume to question them -- when you assert your rights as American citizens to question and dissent -- they get pretty snippy, don't they?

This election isn't just about Kerry. It's also about these arrogant, hypocritical cowards. If we beat Kerry, we beat Tom Brokaw, Peter Jennings, and Dan Rather too, and quite frankly, it's the latter victory I yearn for especially.

Vote. I'm not kidding here. For once, it actually is important, and yes, every vote will count.
