Wait, what's all this? Conservative congressperson John King (R-NY) wants to investigate Fox News and Wall Street Journal-owner Rupert Murdoch over something 9/11-related.
I don't get it. Murdoch isn't a Muslim, is he?
New York Republican Pete King is calling on the FBI to investigate whether Rupert Murdoch’s News Corporation hacked into the voicemail accounts of Sept. 11 victims, calling the allegations of the scandal "disgraceful."
"As I see it, I would expect more things to be coming out over the next several weeks," King told Politico. "And as we approach 9/11, the tenth anniversary, it's even going to get worse."…
A number of Democratic senators are also calling for inquiries into the scandal. Sen. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.) is calling on Attorney General Eric Holder to investigate. Sen. Jay Rockefeller (D-W. Va.), who chairs the Senate Commerce Committee, asked for an investigation on Tuesday into whether American phones were hacked by News Corp. reporters. Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) says she supports Rockefeller. Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-N.J) wants authorities to look into allegations that News of the World reporters bribed London police for information about the British royal family.
Jeeze! Can you even imagine what would happen if Rupert Murdoch was actually held accountable for something his place in this News of the World scandal (which, oddly enough, isn't getting much play with the New York Post or Fox News) just like any other person would be?
No, me neither.
Can't wait to find out why all of these investigations are unpatriotic wastes of taxpayer money being foisted onto an unwilling public by socialist upstarts. I can't wait! I keep refreshing the Wall Street Journal opinion page, but it's not there yet.

Today is a big day. Americans will witness a televised face-off over perhaps the most important social issue of the modern era between an obstructionist party of "no" and a spineless party of perpetual failure and disappointment. But enough about the women's curling semi-finals, there's a healthcare summit today.

WorldNetDaily's Brad O'Leary alerts us of a real, actual issue that real, actual, non-paranoid-schizophrenics really, actually have to concern themselves with…
Gird your blogs, because if liberals in Congress get their way, President Obama will have sole discretionary authority to shut down the Internet or critical parts of the Internet should he feel his presidency is being tested. Worse, under the guise of cybersecurity, Obama will essentially be granted the power to destroy free speech on the Web.
On April 1 of this year, Sens. Rockefeller, Snowe, Bayh and Nelson introduced bills S. 773 and S.778, collectively called the Cybersecurity Act, which would give President Obama dictatorial power over the Internet during a time of national crisis or emergency.
Don't get me wrong: Concerns that President Obama and liberal congresspeople are plotting to declare martial law over the entirety of the Internet and start dictating what right-wing bloggers are allowed to say is in no way a completely-invented issue that borders on the senseless ravings of a sanatarium resident.
It's just that I'm more concerned with the high-levels of Goblin that scientists have been discovering in our drinking water.

While the West Virginia presidential results are still too close to call, the Senate race is anything but. Welcome back, Jay Rockefeller!
Despite a rightward tilt throughout the state, Rockefeller has risen to great heights on the strength of his family name. (In case you didn't already know, his uncle was the man who preceded Malcolm Wilson as governor of New York.) Regardless of how West Virginians feel about Barack Obama or John McCain, they love their celebrity Senator.
Also breaking… the state has re-elected Democratic Governor Joe Manchin, who, in his previous term announced that West Virginia's state motto would be "open for business." Given the economic crisis, that slogan has proven to be as accurate as "mission accomplished," but West Virginians are a forgiving bunch.
