In which the TV monitors are tuned to Fox News.
It doesn't seem that strange. I'm sure candidates and their staff monitor all the major news channels.
They're not monitoring major news channels, they're monitoring Fox. And only Fox.
It doesn't say that. It says the monitors were showing Fox.
I always thought it was funny he called it the straight talk express because he is such an enemy of passenger rail.
But I'm a transportation dork, so that would seem funny to me.
Anyway, I should think we would have learned our lesson about electing old people after our experience with that national embarassmenet named Ronald Reagan.
Catalina, are you really implying that Reagan gave old people a bad name? Wow. I mean, he was bad, but that's bad.
I've nothing against old people. But Reagan - and John Paul II, for that matter - were incapcitated by illness that were augmented by their advanced ages and should have been removed from their positions. Instead, both were cynically manipulated to acheive other people's goals.
Not that I was a fan of Reagan. I've got a pretty good built-in BS detector (to make up for my total lack of gaydar) and it always was off the charts whenever he opened his mouth.
If I were trying to win the Republican nomination, I'd be checking Fox News too.
Once you've sold out, you can't regain your honor or your dignity.
How does that explain Bush II, catalina? He ain't that old.
Of course a GOP candidate's monitors would be tuned to Fox. His target audience watches Fox and he will want to address the issues that are presented on that network. That's like chastising a Dem for listening to NPR. And hey, Fox is "fair and balanced" isn't it? Heh heh.
why, again, are people surprised that mccain is a conservative?
john stewart said it best:
"is the straight talk express making a stopover at the bullshit junction?"
answer: yes, and then it goes to fundyville for a fundraising dinner
People are surprised that McCain is a Conservative because he has talked a REALLY good game over the years. He's played nice with centrist Dems and made it look like he could be reasonable.
HE'S NOT AND NEVER HAS BEEN. That man is as conservative as they come when it comes to just about everything. Thank god that's being seen.
I pray that Guiliani gets the Republican Nom. His 9/11 "heroism" not withstanding, the man is much more beatable than McCain has seen.
I can't believe I once liked this asshat. I used to say that if I had to vote for a Republican he would be it.
I'm just glad he showed me how wrong I was BEFORE it was too late.
@12 - word up. I always found it funny how many liberals thought he was like them. It's too bad I don't respect him for being consistent anymore.
On NPR yesterday they had some asshat "media analyst" talking about "liberal bias", and he twisted the example that the host gave of "Meet The Press" using a conservative Democrat (Lieberman) and a conservative Republican (McCain) to analyze the '06 election, as an example of two flaming LIBERALS. One's a Democrat, i.e., Communist (some of the time), and the other's a liberal Republican!
To people who think McCain is a liberal, yes, there is indeed a liberal bias in the media. Those people are called asshats.
