Republic. I like the sound of the word. It means people can live free, talk free, go or come, buy or sell, be drunk or sober, however they choose. Some words can give you a feeling that makes your heart warm. Republic is one of those words. - John Wayne

60 Minutes: The Ticking Time Bomb
by Bonjo
Drudge has some additional details regarding the "breaking" 18 month old news story of missing explosives in Iraq.

CBS learned of this last week, but they planned to air this story on Sunday, October 31, just 24 hours before the election. Unfortunately for CBS, other left-leaning "news" outlets couldn't wait to smear President Bush in the remaining days of the campaign, and as Drudge says, "[t]he story instead debuted in the NYT. The paper slugged the story about missing explosives from April 2003 as 'exclusive.'"

My favorite part of this story update is the quote from a senior Bush Administration official:

"CBSNEWS' plan to unleash the story just 24 hours before election day had one senior Bush official outraged.

" 'Darn, I wanted to see the forged documents to show how this was somehow covered up,' the Bush source mocked, recalling last months CBS airing of fraudulent Bush national guard letters."
If I were the CBS White House correspondent, I'd be very nervous about next week's election.

60 Minutes' trademark is the ticking stopwatch before and after each commercial break. I grew up listening to that stopwatch on Sunday nights, unaware of the blatant bias represented by the program as "news". Now when I hear that stopwatch, it makes me think of a ticking time bomb, counting down the days, hours and seconds until CBS News implodes upon itself.
