I've been trying to do some others from that list, but i can't think of anything RWish to say about, eg, Paul Ryan or David Petraeus. I'm not even sure the articles wouldn't just sit there gathering dust in perpetuity anyway. Any Merkins want to have a go at it? Totnesmartin (talk) 21:42, 15 January 2010 (UTC)

The new (March 2010) addition is some of the worst writing/citing I have ever seen and I am going to cut it to here after trying to make it make sense for 20 minutes. ħumanUser talk:Human 03:18, 15 March 2010 (UTC)
Here is the latest massaging of this tripe:

In March 2010, Ms. Cheney decided that not only do accused criminals not even deserve rights guaranteed them by the Constitution, but any people who defend them (i.e. their court-appointed attorneys) are terrorist sympathizers. Seriously.

A group led by conservatives Liz Cheney and Bill Kristol then released an Internet video spot. "Who are these government officials?" says a voice in the video. "Eric Holder will only name two. Why the secrecy behind the other seven? Whose values do they share? Tell Eric Holder, Americans have a right to know the identity of the 'Al-Qaeda 7'."[1]

Reading the source yields the quote, but it says so much more and our report is so tragically lame. Can we do better? (You should see the awful state when this was first added! By a BON, of course.) When I went to simply delete the crap edit I got EC'd by Susan adding the ref, so I tried to work with it, but still it's a disaster. ħumanUser talk:Human 03:21, 15 March 2010 (UTC)
