headline in The Daily Caller: "Rise of conservative displeasure over Politico/NBC debate." And the quote is from Sarah Palin, who, in an e-mail to TheDC, described Politico as “puppy-kicking, chain-smoking, porn producers.” We can assume that Sarah was not being literal, but who knows? Do tell, Sarah!
It's a good question posed by TheDC reporter Amanda Carey: Why are Republicans agreeing to debate under the auspices of NBC, which is controlled by the left, and Politico, which is more centrist, but would clearly be dominated by NBC? In their presumed first debate of the '12 election cycle, do Republicans want to be asked questions by reporters who are just down the hall from the likes of Keith Olbermann and Ed Schultz?
Yes, the Reagan Library is involved, and that's somewhat reassuring, although nobody thinks that the Library will have anywhere near as much to do with the handling of the questions as the two journalistic outfits. And meanwhile, the Reagan Library needs to answer questions about a possible conflict of interest between the Library and Politico. It sure is intereting that the chairman of the board of the Reagan Library, Fred Ryan, is also vice-chairman of Albritton Communications, which owns Politico.
Is this really the best Republicans can do? And who are those puppy-kicking porn producers at Politico, anyway?
UPDATE: Newt Gingrich rightfully disses MSNBC.
