Democratic President Will Only Talk to Fellow Liberals
Presidential candidate John Edwards became the first Democrat to withdraw from a debate because it will be hosted by Fox Network -- which liberals equate with Fox News Chanel, which liberals equate with Julius Streicher and Der Stürmer:
Former Sen. John Edwards campaign announced that he will skip the Nevada Democratic Party's planned August presidential debate, the latest fallout from the party's decision to have the Fox Network host the event.
The move sparked an outcry, particularly among liberals and activist bloggers, who accused Fox of being too sympathetic to Republicans and demanded that the Democratic candidates boycott the forum.
MoveOn.org, one of the nation's leading progressive organizations, gathered more than 250,000 signatures asking the Nevada Democratic Party to drop Fox as a debate sponsor....
"We wanted to send a clear message to voters, the media and the presidential candidates that Fox is part of the right-wing smear machine, not a legitimate source of news," said MoveOn civic communications director Adam Green.
Hillary Clinton declined to state whether she also would boycott, and the Washington Post declined to permit Fox News to confuse matters by denying it was "part of the right-wing smear machine."
This brings up an interesting point: it is becoming increasingly clear that Democrats simply refuse to talk to Fox News, to come onto center-right radio shows, to campaign in Republican areas, or to communicate in any way with anyone who is not a liberal.
If a Democrat should win the 2008 election, the best guess is that he or she would continue the practice: For four or eight years, the President of the United States would refuse to allow anyone but the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Los Angeles Times, CNN, CBS, and whatever remains of Air America to attend White House press briefings.
Mr. or Ms. President will initiate a formal policy of only talking to the Left; the sub-cabinet level position of Speaker to Smearers will be created for any unfortunately necessary interaction with right-wingers, which by law will be conducted while the Speaker wears a clothespin on his nose.
Townhall meetings will be restricted to card-carrying members of the ACLU (literally carrying their cards). Markos Moulitsas Zúniga will be named chairman of the FCC; and Helen Thomas, doyenne of the White House press corps, will be named Secretary of State (hoping to restore the glory days of Madeleine Albright).
The NRA will be declared a terrorist organization, Gavin Newsom will be the new Secretary of GLBT Issues, and the Boy Sprouts will be forced to accept gay scouts and gay scoutmasters -- then will promptly be sued out of existence by the former alleging inappropriate (but fun!) contact with the latter.
And all for the want of a unified Republican Party.
So unless you want to regress back to the day when the president could call up a studio head and order him to make a hagiographic movie about Josef Stalin, perhaps you should consider ceasing to attack every conservative who gets uppity (or gets on your nerves), and instead focus your energy on the people who actually want to transform the United States of America into the United Counties of Sweden.

» FOX主催米民主党大統領候補討論会、極左翼からの圧力で中止 from In the Strawberry Field
ネバダでは予定されていたフォックスニュース主催の民主党大統領候補討論会が極左翼からの激しい圧力により中止されるという出来事があった。この討論会はネバダの民主党がフォックスニュースと契約して主催したものだったが、左翼よりの多いアメリカの主流メディアのなかで、珍しく公平で均衡の取れた報道をしているケーブルテレビの人気ニュースチャンネルのFOX（フォックス）は、フォックスが他のニュースチャンネルに比べると充分に左寄りでないことから、左翼はブッシュ政権のプロパガンダ放送局だとして毛嫌いしている。 先日も候補... [Read More]

Just when you think the Demoncrats can’t go any lower, they dig down to China and discover the righteousness of One Party rule.

Edwards is sure vindicating Ann Coulter's description of him.

Actually, this is the reason why I think the Democrat ic Party is doomed to decay and sudden total collapse no matter what they do at this point. Both their fear of outside information and their incredible thin-skinned pettiness as exemplified by their reactions when referred to as the Democrat Party by a man they had jeered at for malapropisms for more than a decade point to an increasing fragility both of intellect and of self-esteem on their part that does not look like it will be reversed, halted or even slowed anytime soon. But if we can encompass them and they no longer have the ability to encompass either us or even those who have no political alignment at all then how long do you think they can really last? o_O
Any bets as to how far down the Gormenghast road the libs will end up going? At this point I'm starting to visualize the Clintons as Steerpike but I have to confess that the Democrats seem to have become rich with candidates for that role! ^_~

Can it be very long before the NYTimes, WaPo or the Washington Times begin running stories of 'Quagmire, Civil War in the US.' Or possibly, 'Democrat's to Redeploy US Executive Branch to Hague.'
There's a heavy price awaiting to be paid for the cost of this division.

Commenter Eg's reference to the Washington Times must actually be to the Los Angeles Times.
The Washington Times is actually a credible newspaper.

I'm of the opinion that the Hildebeast will sink in the polls when she is finally forced to enter an unscripted televised debate before an impartial audience. Note to Republican nominee: Just get her ticked off.
