This was from her latest column about Hillary's book. At the tail end, she picks up on something interesting; this guy Greg Packer shows up over and over and over as a "man on the street" in media stories:
Another average individual eager to get Hillary's book was Greg Packer, who was the centerpiece of the New York Times' "man on the street" interview about Hillary-mania. After being first in line for an autographed book at the Fifth Avenue Barnes & Noble, Packer gushed to the Times: "I'm a big fan of Hillary and Bill's. I want to change her mind about running for president. I want to be part of her campaign." It was easy for the Times to spell Packer's name right because he is apparently the entire media's designated "man on the street" for all articles ever written. He has appeared in news stories more than 100 times as a random member of the public. Packer was quoted on his reaction to military strikes against Iraq; he was quoted at the St. Patrick's Day Parade, the Thanksgiving Day Parade and the Veterans' Day Parade. He was quoted at not one – but two – New Year's Eve celebrations at Times Square. He was quoted at the opening of a new "Star Wars" movie, at the opening of an H&M clothing store on Fifth Avenue and at the opening of the viewing stand at Ground Zero. He has been quoted at Yankees games, Mets games, Jets games – even getting tickets for the Brooklyn Cyclones. He was quoted at a Clinton fund-raiser at Alec Baldwin's house in the Hamptons and the pope's visit to Giants stadium. Are all reporters writing their stories from Jayson Blair's house? Whether or not it will help her presidential ambitions, "Living History" definitely positions Hillary nicely for a job as a reporter.

Wow! I wonder if the mainstream media will pick up on that. Nice work! [Democrats] now go downtown and offer the homeless drunks some cigarettes in exchange for voting for Gore![/Democrats]

Bruce Dickenson is just like every other guy...he puts on his pants one leg at a time...the difference is that after he puts his pants on, he makes gold records.

How in the hell do you get Iron Maiden to play in your Garage? I will give you A GI 30 rd AR mag and an AK mag to Bruce if you get him to write a song about keeping our guns.
