Dirty Mary...errrr... I Mean Dirty Harry

******* 10/13/2006 4:42 pm SEE MAJOR UPDATE BELOW ********

Surely, this will be the lead story on ABC, NBC, and CBS
(as soon as hell freezes over).
.......10/12/2006 Mary at FREEDOM EDEN

From time to time I recommend other blog sites that I read regularly. When one of these fine folks cover a topic I can't cover, or offer a unique point of view or perspective, I recommend them to you all.

Today I recommend you read FREEDOM EDEN'S review of the current story about Harry Reid's land transactions.


FREEDOM EDEN is not for the faint of heart. Mary, the editor and author, is a Republican Right Wing Firebrand. She is a partisan of the highest order. Fair and balanced are not part of her vocabulary. Mary will kill me for saying that. But I mean she makes no pretense of giving a liberal or Democrat point of view.

Her website slogan says it all: Mary, Location: In a Blue State, in a Red State of Mind

Mary's posts are long, generally covering entire articles in depth and detail. She dissects and analyzes every word. Mary, like the old joke about DA's with a grand jury, could indict a ham sandwich.

By the same token the could make the New York Telephone Directory funny and interesting.

Once Mary gets you in her sights, the attack is withering.

A prolific writer, Mary's FREEDOM EDEN is rapidly becoming one of the "must read" sites in the blogosphere. I simply am astounded (and jealous) of her rapid growth in readership. My only claim is to say "I found her first."

I often disagree with her, but I still have great respect. When Mary talks, I listen.

Since 90% of my readership is liberal to progressive to far left, I ask you to view with an open mind and show her the same respect you've generally shown me.

Now, on to the topic at hand.....

Mary is really covering the Harry Reid land transaction scandal (or non-scandal as the case may be). And she's all over Harry like ham on rye.

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid collected a $1.1 million windfall on a Las Vegas land sale even though he hadn't personally owned the property for three years, property deeds show.

    The complex dealings allowed Reid to transfer ownership, legal liability and some tax consequences to Brown's company without public knowledge, but still collect a seven-figure payoff nearly three years later.

    Reid hung up the phone when questioned about the deal during an AP interview last week.

Mary feels like the main stream media is ignoring this story. I think she might be right. That's why I'm recommending it to you. Here's the link: Mary's FREEDOM EDEN

************ UPDATE 10/13/2006 4:33 PM ****************

It looks like the major work being done by some of the up and coming bloggers like FREEDOM EDEN are starting to pay of. Today, three days after Mary began her major assault on the Harry Reid land sale story, the major media and high profile bloggers have begun to take notice and investigate. I'll point you to Michelle Malkin's "Pounding Dirty Harry" for a really thorough update on the story.

    Hi, Wizard!

    "Dirty Mary" -- Very funny. :)

    Thank you for highlighting my blog and your comments.

    But I have to tell you, I'm not a Republican. I'm an independent.

    I can understand why you would think otherwise, because I have no qualms about making it known that I have serious problems with the Dems' plans and their tactics.

    Yes, I support President Bush and the administration.

    But all in all, I have voted for Dems more often than I've voted for Republican candidates.

    "I didn't leave the Democratic Party. It left me." :)
