"Lisa Myers is an Emmy award-winning Senior Investigative Correspondent for NBC News, a seasoned political analyst, and one of the most respected journalists in the country. Her groundbreaking reports on the financial meltdown, war on terror, politics, assorted political and corporate scandals, and the Pentagon’s sometimes broken military procurement system have triggered official investigations and won critical acclaim." - From Lisa Myers' MSNBC bio page.
Wow. Lisa Myers must be the best, most important journalist in the whole wide world!
Being an important, unbiased journalist, she took her self-proclaimed journalistic skills up Fifth Avenue where she uncovered the fact that Newt Gingrich has a $500,000 credit line at the upscale jewelry company Tiffany! Ms. Myers proceeded to interview some analyst during her rabid Today Show report on May 26, and this important analyst exclaimed, "Most Americans don't have houses worth $500,000, let alone a credit line at Tiffany's!"
"What could Newt have purchased at Tiffany's?!" Ms. Myers worried out loud. Well, she saw a photograph of Newt's wife Calista wearing a necklace! A necklace that looked exactly like a necklace in the Tiffany catalog that sold for $45,000! $45,000! I repeat - $45,000!
"What a hypocrite Newt is!" Ms. Myers breathlessly inferred. Here he is saying he's financially responsible and "frugal" yet, he has a $500,000 credit line at Tiffany!
Newt sucks! He's earned money and now he wants to spend it! Rat bastard! No wonder the country is going to hell in a handbasket!
By the way, as I've mentioned before, I love Newt's politics, but he is too politically damaged to make a serious run for President in 2012. I also couldn't care less what Newt spends his money on or how much of it he has. I couldn't care less what you spend your money on either. If you earned it legally, go for it. (By the way, the cliche is NOT "could care less" - that means I could care less, by saying "couldn't care less" I announce I am at the end of my caring threshold, but I digress.)
I do care about blatant political hatchet jobs disguised as important news stories performed by the mainstream media. Listen, America, get your act together and reject political meddling (from either side) by lunatics like Lisa Myers who profess to be credible journalists. The future of your country depends on it.
