I bet you're wondering: Are talking points issued to folks who write letters to the editor, or people who put comments on blogs? A topical question, given the letter-writing campaign in Helena's office. But I'm an optimist -- I'll just assume this is a spontaneous coincidence, in response to a previous post. They come from different IP addresses, so they're not the same person, but they clearly have a psychic connection. Have a look:
Susan Susan,in a story like this,does a reporter,only look at misdeeds done one party? Or does a good reporter look for similar misdeeds done by all parties? I'm not a reporter,but my gut feeling is that this goes on beyond a single party. Isn't this what reporters do? Look for the story behind the story? Or is this too much to expect from a reporter?

If the issue concerned a liberal staffer, then an effort would be made to elucidate what Liberals have done. In this case, it's conservatives, so that's who's on the hotseat. No sense in casting around without a clue.
