Heritage Foundation fires analysts, hires parrots... nobody notices a difference.

-- by Thomas Leavitt

Political analyst Brian Darling from the Heritage Foundation says the accident [Cheney shooting] is just being used for political purposes.
BRIAN DARLING: As you can see these ethical controversies and this accident is being used for political purposes and it detracts from the real issues that the American people care about.

Picked up from satellite after broadcast feed cut off...

Parrot: "Awk! Used for political purposes! Awk! Detracts from the real issues!"

Producer: "O.K. We're off the air!"

Parrot: "Awk! Where's Big Time and the Boy Genius?!? Awk! Polly wanna cracker and a beer! Awk! Spin spin spin! Awk! Awk! Awk! Conflate ethical scandal with accident, dismiss both! Awk! Polly want a tenured fellowship with six figure stipend! Awk!"

Producer: "What?!? Cut the feed you dolt! Turd Blossom is going to..."

In case you are interested, the source for the quote above is a transcript from an Australian radio show, "The World Today"... one of the most ridiculously lousy excuses for "journalism" I've seen in a long time.

' ..one of the most ridiculously lousy excuses for "journalism" I've seen in a long time.' Which is precisely why I have stopped listening to 'The World Today' on which this item was broadcast, Thomas (it is actually on even while I type this)! The same 'journalist' who was responsible for this item also spoke of Cheney as being 'deeply affected' when he spoke of his hunting 'mishap' in another piece of 'reporting'.
