Your smart remarks about our President and Vice President are not welcome. If at all possible, try to be &quot;fair and balanced.&quot;</p><p>I think that was a thinly veiled reference to the F-word Network, Wolf. What do you think? </p></blockquote><p><strong>Video Excerpt:</strong> <a href="media/2005-09-09-CNNTSR-Cafferty.rm">Real</a> or <a href="media/2005-09-09-CNNTSR-Cafferty.wmv">Windows</a></p>
