Thank you, thank you thank you Chris. I've been wanting to ask but I hate being the all time winner of The Stupid Question award. I have to give you other guys a chance.   
I think I've got the "TA" part as probably temporarily away. The "D" has me stumped, unless it means desk.

Re: "A loser's strategy?": Jeff Bercovici lost all credibility when he said: "You can decide for yourself whether Fox's relentless focus on ACORN and that missing birth certificate constitute valid watchdogging or biased mudslinging." FNC is not in line with the birthers!

I've seen this comment before. Just who on Fox has been pushing the birth certificate issue, except to debunk it?

Re: "Wednesday's numbers": So, Keith's hour-long Special Comment had no effect on the ratings. Good. :+:
