Osama Mama and The Oregonian

This morning I opened The Oregonian to the editorial page and this headline: Keep Murray in U.S. Senate. I was shocked! Keep Patty Murray "Osama Mama"! The woman who in 2002 said,
"...that bin Laden had been at work in unnamed countries 'for decades building schools, building roads, building infrastructure, building day care facilities, building health care facilities. And the people are extremely grateful,'

"He's made their lives better. We have not done that," said Sen. Patty Murray "Osama Mama"
The Oregonian said Osama Mama "is becoming a rising force in the Senate" "is building seniority". While "she opposed granting George Bush the authority to attack Iraq, she has voted to fund the military since,". Nethercutt, her opponent, five term House Representative, only offers "his pledge of loyal support of Bush policies on defense, taxes, health policy and energy".
Is there no outrage or accountability for her comments about bin Laden? One problem I see is that we keep electing people to Congress because they are "building seniority". Just maybe the senator from Washington would have greater influence if they were from the party of George W Bush. The Oregonian already came out in support of Kerry, so I guess they don't want Bush's policies on "defense, taxes, health policy and energy".

To the Oregonian: You do not speak for me! Why don't you just publish the news, collect money from your advertisers, and stop telling the people in Oregon and SW Washington what to do!
