I was flipping through the channels while having dinner and noticed Lynn Cheney on Wolf Blitzer. It was pretty obvious Wolf had her on under the pretext of discussing her new book, but in fact he was attempting to score points – Democrat talking points that is – by suggesting that Lynn Cheney’s previous book Sisters was akin to Webb’s now notorious writings.
Not only did she handle herself well (she got poor Wolf to sheepishly admit he wanted America to win the war on terror after scolding him for the sniper segment), but the comparison itself showed just how far into never never land CNN is willing to go for the Dems.
OC Chronicle also saw the segment and was able find the reference to “lesbianism” in Sisters Wolf was attempting to compare to Webb’s writings.
Lets see how fair of a comparison it is:
Webb explicitly refers to a father placing his son’s penis in his mouth. On another occasion he writes of woman slicing bananas with her vagina.
Versus Lynn Cheney who writes about……two women embracing.
On one hand we have two women embracing, and on the other hand we have a fruit slicing vagina and incestuous pedophilia.
CNN…fair…..balanced……the “most trusted name in news”.
I’ll keep the poll up through the weekend.
Update (10/27): So far there are 6 votes and all six voted yes, the voter can produce a photo ID if asked at the polls. This is completely unscientific, but I think that, of actual voters, the number that can produce an ID, while not 100%, is closer to 100% than the percentage opponents of Voter ID laws would have you believe.
