The Associated Press is reporting that once again, John Edwards is showing some balls against the yellow journalism that is the Fox News Channel.
"We believe there's just no reason for Democrats to give Fox a platform to advance the right-wing agenda while pretending they're objective," said Jonathan Prince, Edwards' deputy campaign manager.
To that I say...good. Democrats accepting Fox's role in this supposedly bipartisan political event is a bit like Red Riding Hood accepting Grandma Wolf's invitation to dinner. Definitely not in Red's self-interest, as the wolf has an agenda in direct contradiction to hers. Frankly, I'm sick of all this sucking up to these asshats. It's high fucking time someone in the Democratic party called a spade a spade here. Fox exists as nothing more than a big tit for far right neanderthals to suck on. Politicos and mainstream media outlets need to stop treating them as if they're contributing anything to the public discourse, especially since the average Fox viewer has an IQ somewhere between Forrest Gump and Junior Sample.
Joe McCarthy didn't stop his witchhunt until he was famously called out by Joseph Welch with the immortal words, "Have you no sense of decency, sir? At long last, have you left no sense of decency?" Welch left the room to a burst of applause, because someone finally found the balls to confront the unspeakable bully. Until then, appeasement had been the order of the day.
Well, Rupert Murdoch is the new Joe McCarthy (both, after all, are idols of Ann Coulter).
Could it be that John Edwards is the next Joe Welch?
