So the Democrats have decided to back out of the planned Nevada debate, hosted by Fox News. It's a free country, of course, and so the donky party is free to bow down to pressure from the lefty blogosphere. But of course, regular middle-of-the-road Americans are free, also, to draw their own conclusions about the Democrats, and who they listen to.
David Rhodes, a Fox VP, told The Las Vegas Review-Journal, "News organizations will want to think twice before getting involved in the Nevada Democratic Caucus which appears to be controlled by radical fringe out-of-state interest groups, not the Nevada Democratic Party." Pow!
Interestingly, the editorial page of the same paper, the Review-Journal, made the same point as Rhodes. Under the headline, "Meltdown Over Fox," wise heads
wrote, "Liberals' aversion to Fox News has finally gone over the top."
The edit page observed that the goal of the Nevada Democratic Party was to get moire attention to the Silver State's January presidential caucus--now the second the nation. Given that Nevada is a solidly red state at the presidential level, the Review-Journal asked, "What better way for the party to reach conservative and 'values' voters who might consider changing allegiances?"
But, the paper continued, "The socialist, Web-addicted wing of the Democratic Party was apoplectic. The prospect of having to watch Fox News to see their own candidates would have been torture in itself. So they set the blogosphere aflame with efforts to kill the broadcast arrangement, or at least have all the candidates pull out of the event." And that's what happened. The lefty blogospheroids prevailed. First they peeled away John Edwards, and then the entire Nevada Democratic party.
