Liberal [?] Democrats Unhappy about FOX co-sponship of Debate!


From The Patriot Post email newsletter comes an article that I find refreshing. It appears that the Democrats are not happy about FOX News co-sponsoring a debate between Democratic presidential candidates.

EDITORIAL EXEGESIS
“Liberals’ aversion to Fox News has finally gone over the top. The Nevada Democratic Party had agreed to let the right-tilting network co-sponsor, of all things, an August debate in Reno between Democratic presidential candidates. Party officials were serious about drawing national attention to the state’s January presidential caucus, the country’s second in the 2008 nominating process. What better way for the party to reach conservative and ‘values’ voters who might consider changing allegiances?*But the socialist, Web-addicted wing of the Democratic Party was apoplectic. The prospect of having to watch Fox News to see their own candidates would have been torture in itself. So they set the blogosphere aflame with efforts to kill the broadcast arrangement, or at least have all the candidates pull out of the event.*The approach of outfits such as MoveOn.org is so juvenile it’s laughable… This hyperventilation results from the fact that far-left Democrats have no comparable media outlet, nor any widespread national appeal, for their radical views in favor of heavy-handed regulation, wealth redistribution, diplomatic capitulation and economic protectionism. So they attack their rivals’ messenger with a reckless barrage of rhetoric that cuts down their own allies with friendly fire. By Friday, the Nevada Democratic Party caved in to the lunatic fringe and began seeking a more ‘appropriate’ television partner. Comedy Central, perhaps?” —Las Vegas Review-Journal

  1. Sadly, me too!

  2. I am dying laughing hear. What a wonderful description of what the Dems have become…LOL and to think I was foolish enough to be one in my youth.

  3. Well, what would one expect from money-grubbing, white flag a’flying folks. LOL!!
    I watched the so called debate on the Iraq War this week. It was painful to watch the dems try to scarf up all the old dirt about the war, esp since so much of it has been disproved or taken care of. ‘It’s still a failure, a quagmire, I tell you!!!!’
    Yeah, tell that to the boots on the ground who are rounding up so many bad guys…
    God, I love our guys and gals!!
