Cal Thomas: Democrats Are Now The "Taliban"
Fri Aug 11, 2006 at 03:53:44 PM PDT
This is the biggest piece of shit Cal Thomas has ever published in his entire career -- and given Cal Thomas' career, that's saying something.
The narrow primary defeat of veteran Sen. Joe Lieberman in Connecticut's Democratic primary is more than a loss for one man. It is a loss for his party and for the country. It completes the capture of the Democratic Party by its Taliban wing.
CNN Headline News Says Lamont = Al Qaeda
Fri Aug 11, 2006 at 05:25:07 PM PDT
Sigh. They're like robots. Little metal-skulled, hive-minded robots. From Think Progress:
Today on CNN Headline News, anchor Chuck Roberts discussed the impact of the foiled British terror plot with Hotline senior editor John Mercurio. Roberts asked Mercurio, "How does this factor into the Lieberman/Lamont contest? And might some argue, as some have already argued, that Lamont is the al Qaeda candidate?"
"And might some argue that Lamont is the al Qaeda candidate?" Seriously, it's like the rainbow of terror has now crawled entirely up inside the Anus of Collective Punditry. (Actually, I think I've read Star Trek fan fiction like that, although it might have just been an exceptionally bad Ann Coulter column. And come to think of it, I've never read Star Trek fan fiction.)
You know, some might argue that Chuck Roberts blows retired crack whores in exchange for their used Burger King collectable cups. Not ME, mind you -- I'm just sayin' some people might argue that.
Honestly, CNN, just apologize. You know it's the right thing to do.

Don't let Ned Lamont get Swiftboated - GET UP IN CNN'S GRILL
Fri Aug 11, 2006 at 02:40:30 PM PDT
"Is Ned Lamont the Al Qaeda candidate?"
This was the question that CNN's Nice Haircut Chuck Roberts posed this afternoon to Hotline's John Mercurio.
He followed it up with, say it with me, "... as some have said ... "
Patriotism may be the last refuge of a scoundrel but the "people are saying" weasel phrase is closing fast.

I won't get into why Roberts' question is yellow and vomit-inducing. I'm pretty sure that's clear. However, when I called CNN / Time Warner to complain the rep I talked to said that he had not heard of the question and had not gotten any calls about it.
I am a CT resident and I both donated to and voted for Ned. Let's not let this bullshit stand, hmm? This idea has already been trumpeted by Cheney and Lieberman and I expect to hear it for the next 3 months, fulminating from underneath Sean Hannity's brow ridge.
CNN's number is 404 827 1700. It would be lovely if the got several hundred calls sticking up for Ned.
Let's get a jump on them. Think what it would have done for John Kerry. Think what it COULD do for Ned.
