So, today we learn of the further hi jinks of the fine folks at CNN who conducted the Republican debate last night. Why did they even bother if it was all rigged to make points for the Dems?
The first inkling that all was not above board, shocking, I know from CNN, came with the apology from Cooper Anderson for the alleged non-vetting of the retired Brig.Gen.Keith Kerr. Cooper had to go ahead and say something because Bill Bennett was telling him that he was receiving text messages that Kerr was a Team Hillary member during the after debate chatter show. Yep, the very retired general who was assuming all Republicans are ignorant, fascist homophobes and complained about the Don't Ask Don't Tell policy in the military is supporting the very candidate who is married to the President that put the policy into law. If you'll remember back to the fabulous early glory days of Bill and Hill, the Don't As, Don't Tell policy was the first big legislative act that the Clintons were only too happy to crow about passing. Colin Powell told them it was not good legislation but they pushed ahead. Hey, they support the military. If it fits their agenda, that is.
How would CNN not have vetted this loser? Not only was his video in line with the agenda of the Dems and he's military, retired, so he was a real catch for them. They chose his video question and then flew him out to Florida for the live debate and paid for his accommodations. I can assure you that he was heavily vetted. Maybe Anderson Cooper was in the dark but I find that a bit much to take, too, as he is suppose to be one of their investigative reporters and I would think he'd research the questioners in the audience.
Then, to continue on with the theme of Republicans are ignorant, Bible thumping, homophobes, too racist and fascist to be taken seriously, David Cercone, a Log Cabin Republican questioned the panel about gay rights. Thing is, on his web site, he's a declared Obama supporter.
A 'undecided' young person whose video background looked to be a dorm room turned out to be an active Edwards supporter, also traced to her web site. And, oh yeah, she has a huge crush on Anderson. Sigh.
A 'concerned' Mom posing with 2 young kids in a room that looked to be a playroom, asked about lead on imported toys. She's a union activist also supporting Edwards. Hey, it's for the children. We don't know if those were her kids but that's beside the point.
So, we also had a black father and son, looking to be in a workout room, asking why it is that blacks vote for Democrats almost exclusively even though they have traditionally conservative family values? Yeah, why would that be? Huh? See, if a white person says this, well, we're racist. I've said it before and was told I was being silly. Really? When all data show black Americans vote Democrat by a 90% majority, doesn't that bear notice? There is no other group of people who votes so consistently single minded. Not even rich white people, as my critic told me. She said rich people were Republican voters. I knew better. And this week the stories have broken of studies proving her wrong, too. Especially among the newly elected Dems. So much for that scenario. It's a tired old stereotype.
CNN must now be totally boycotted. The network is a joke. Why do you think the Dems only go there, or MSNBC. Neither are doing well with ratings yet continue to push for the Dems. The farther left the better for them.
What bias? Know who owns YouTube? Google. CNN should use it sometime.
