Fair and Balanced

Brief summary: Ned Lamont and Joe Lieberman are involved in a primary election today for Lieberman's senate seat in Connecticut. Lieberman is for the war in Iraq. Lamont is against it. The smart people of Connecticut will throw Lieberman out of office for supporting the war and elect Lamont. This scares the heck out of the Republicans because some believe that a Lamont win will signal that many other pro-war incumbents will be thrown out of office in the mid-term elections this fall. Today Fox News threw up this graphic. (Click to enlarge.). Not very fair. Not very balanced.

What would one expect from FOX (faux) news? Please recall that Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11. FOX still hasn't learned that lesson. FOX is still futilely looking for WMDs in Iraq.

I guess the Kurds were killed with slingshots.

Some kook moveon.org liberals believe that pro-war incumbents will be thrown out but Republicans love watching liberals eat their own.

rr at 4:16, the Kurds were killed with chemical weapons (some of which we supplied to Saddam) that have since become aged and useless. Trying to tie the Kurd massacres to 9/11 just doesn't cut it.

Have you looked in Syria lately?

When the Republicans held the democrats feet to the fire and called for a vote to pull out of Irag and all but 7 democratic senators voted no, those senators might want to dust off their resumes and start looking for work like Lieberman.

4:48, have YOU looked in Syria lately? What did you see when you were there? How was the flight?You seem like an expert on the matter. Or, are you just watching the news like everybody else and therefore without any real basis for having an opinion one way or another. Suspect the latter.

There's a difference between "being for the war" and supporting troops overseas in a war zone. Yet another idiotic blog- little things amuse little minds.

I voted for the war before I voted against it.

I hope all you Republicans take notice. Does America support this war? Holy Cow Pies ... NO

Is the average hard working family going to take it out on the Republican controlled USA .. You bet and I hope all you local Texas Republicans are cleaned out too.

I can see it know. Crying alone at your computer screen with your porn and cupcakes and still no job. What is poor Jimbo aka RR to do?

Are you going to come out and let the rest of these good bloggers know what kind of deviate loser you are? The things you have done on the moral level of the republican party is enough for your own kind to shun you.

You are so easy. Please please tell us of your life's accomplishments?

TXsharon said...

Oh goody! Lieberman lost.

Hey Jimbo

Drop the cupcakes and let go of your sub standard weenie (sounds comming from Jimbo ... wacka wacka) and "cut and Paste" this ...

"Lieberman lost and by a political newcomer who portrayed him as an apologist for the Bush administration".

One down and more of you folks to go.

Ya'll really are infatuated by someone named Jimbo aren't you? I guess all the democrats that voted for the war are now looking over their shoulder. It's a great day to be a Republican.

Cynthia Jihad McKinney was as anti-war as you liberals can get. What the hell happened? Oh I know, voter fraud, racism, vast right wing conspiracy..........LOL

Hey TxSheehan, Did I call it or what? Cynthia Jihad McKinney is saying now that there was voter fraud.

Moveon.org finally won an election. Although it was a primary and in a blue state, you would think they just won the presidency. They are so proud that they defeated their own VP candidate.

B.G. would it have been fair and balanced if the image had shown Lieberman leaving/entering the polling site? The answer is yes and for the following reason: Lamont can spin this image and say if the U.S. hadn't invaded Iraq and or supported the aggression of Israel against a sovereign nation there would be no war/wars in the Middle East. Lieberman can spin the picture and say that if Lamont were in office he would not support the U.S. or Israel in their wars against islamic radicals. Maybe not the best explanation but it just depends on which side you want to take as to whether or not you think the picture is fair and balanced. B.G. you don't believe it is fair and balanced only because you perceive Fox News as a republican mouthpiece and therefore view everything Fox reports slanted/biased. Think about this from both sides and see if you still believe it is unfair. Lastly the two big stories in the news today are Israel/Lebanon and Lieberman/McKinney primary votes/results. Therefore not surprising that Lamont/Middle East on screen at same time. JACKAAASSSS!

Hillary, be scared. Be very, very scared. Kooks don't like it when you vote for war. And be sure your husband doesn't endorse you because it is the kiss of death. Just ask Joe.

All we proved is that one of the bluest states supports a liberal anti war candidate. Can we conclude that a red state would replace its Republician senator because of a pro war vote. no way.

The "good" people of Conn. can move as far to the left as they want. The more the demos move left, the better for the Republicians.

TXsharon said...

Jimbo, how many asinine anon posts are you going to make in this thread? Ah, hate to tell you but you're talking to yourself.

Moveon.org, Daily Kos, Code Pink, NOW, Americans for Defeat, Cut and Run, Jews are Pigs, NAACP, Flowers not Bombs, Please Don't Hurt Us, and Would You Like Fries With That Abortion have now taken control of the democratic party. I hope they all stay on the bus when it goes over the cliff in November.

Tx, doesn't it just chap your bung hole to know that I am not the only Republican posting on here?

TXsharon said...

No. I have always known that a good many (but not all) Wise County people are profoundly ignorant, easily manipulated by religious zealots and vote against their own interest. It won't save you this year though.

Democrats haven't done anything and can't even come up with good candidates.

They should continue to do nothing. Just let the Republicans fall apart within their own ranks.

Lamont wasn't afraid to buck the President - others aren't either.

We won't have to vote em' out at the poles. They will all self-destruct before then.
