Roger Simon (link at right) gives me a hat tip, then supposes if I am related to Michael (3 scoops, please) Moore. Phtooey!

No relation. And not related to that true right wing warhawk, ace radioman and marathon commenteer, John Moore, either.

When I saw the info (in the posting below) this morning, then read Andrew Sullivan, and keeping fairly current with Roger and the folks that visit his blog, Belmont, Lileks, Kaus, et al, I began to wonder. What will it take for the truth of what we have really accomplished in the Middle East to come out and be available to all of the people, all of the time?

I sometimes feel like we are part of a priveleged few who manage to see and discuss the truth amongst ourselves, but that the average Joe, you know, the guy that votes, doesn't have that advantage. He gets ABC-NBC-CBS-PBS-NYT-LAT-WaPo. The various blog polls that are floating around tell us of 100,000 visits here and 200,000 visits there, but what about the 100,000,000 or so other people?

I guess we just keep digging, reporting, blogging, commenting and maybe screaming a little, too. Especially when somebody like Joseph (see Roger Simon's comments)shows up with a silly question about a position (anti-terrorist czar?) that does not exist.

It does seem to be a bit discouraging, though. Am I too much gloom and doom? As was asked by someone last week, "Are they really that smart?" Has the Bush reelection team truly laid a cunning, devious, Machiavellian (sp.?) trap for the Demos and the mainstram media?

I hope so.
