Another Democrat scandal...MSM again leaves off the D word

Democrats embroiled in scandal seem to be on the rise, and each case gives the left-wing media opportunities to be fair and unbiased, but fail to do so time and time again. This time it is Democratic Baltimore Mayor Sheila Dixon, who has been indicted on 12 charges of perjury, theft, and various forms of fraud.

Looking around the media landscape one can't help but notice that the d-word (democrat) is curiously missing from the headline, and often emerges further down the article. For instance, on MSNBC, the d-word is not in the headline...but it makes an appearance at the beginning of the sixth paragraph.

Washington Post: Not in headline, d-word's first appearance? Not until the 12th line break!

CNN? Ignored it.

CBS News regurgitated the MSNBC version, which was courtesy of the AP (Absent Press -- aka Associated Press) so no headline mention of the d-word.

ABC News regurgitated the Washington Post version, so again, no mention of the d-word until the 12th line break (you have to actually go to page 2 in this case to see it).

If it had been a Republican mayor it would be in the headline. Need proof? Let's look at Louisiana Congressman David Vitter, Republican, when his phone number was found in the black book of the DC Madam:

Washington Post, July 10, 2007 -- Not in headline, but in FIRST sentence!

CNN (they decided to cover it -- surprise!) -- not in headline but in third line break.

CBS News -- Headliner...AND first sentence...courtesy of Politico.

MSNBC -- First sentence mention of the R-word.

The nation owes more than thanks to three unlikely modern day patriots: professional poker player, musician, and retired attorney, Leo Donofrio; life long Democrat and former Pennsylvania assistant attorney general, Phil Berg; and Soviet emigree and attorney, Dr. Orly Taitz (she’s also a dentist).

While Mr. Donofrio painstakingly established the airtight case that BHO could not be an Article II “natural born citizen” (at BHO’s birth, dad was British/Kenyan, not American, citizen) Leo’s Stay of the 12/15/08 electoral college vote was denied by SCOTUS as procedurally unripe.

Nevertheless, since no congressman and senator objected on 1/8/09 to Congress’ count and certification of the electoral vote which would have turned resolution of Obama’s eligibility issue over to Congress — rendering moot the Berg and Taitz (Lightfoot) cases — Berg finally does achieve standing on the issue of actual harm, to be addressed at the Friday 1/9/09 SCOTUS Conference on Writ of Certiorari. Obama’s failure to submit evidence of his constitutional qualification for the 1/9/09 conference will mean he cannot thereafter challenge Berg’s request to enjoin the 1/8/09 Congressional electoral count and certification, albeit retroactive, scheduled for SCOTUS conference Friday 1/16/09. Moreover, Chief Justice Roberts has scheduled a full Court conference on the Lightfoot case Friday 1/23/09 in the event there needs to be a Constitutionally mandated action, the Inauguration itself, to enjoin retroactively.

Now that BHO is in checkmate and cannot be POTUS, he can be a patriot as well. He need not subject the nation to the expense and trauma of requiring SCOTUS to overrule his ‘Presidency’. BHO can and should voluntarily step down with Biden becoming Acting POTUS under the 20th Amendment, and under the agreement all potential claims by the Government for itself and on behalf of others against BHO are released.
