Looks like it's time for another dye-job for the Net-Roots. Their natural white is starting to peek through again.
Bad news for the shadow boxers over at KOS, MYDD and others who believe the frontline of the political fight is on cable TV. After their successful Web campaign to block the Nevada Democratic Party from co-sponsoring aPresidential debate with Fox News comes this-
-----> The Congressional Black Caucus
has just agreed to stage two such debates with Fox over the course of the year.
What's a matter with these folks? Don't they know that Fox will make Biden wear black face? That Obama will be forced to do a minstrel dance with Roger Ailes? That the earth itself will spin off its axis as horrified bloggers from Digby to Hamsher wail their guts out?
"The CBC Institute is committed to presenting the presidential candidates to the broadest audience possible," Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., the chairman of the institute, said in a statement. "Collaborating with Fox News provides an opportunity to take this presidential election to millions of households."
Oh, what a rare thought. We're in an election and we have a chance to speak to an audience of millions who ordinarily wouldn't listen, so let's take a shot.
Wasn't that easy?
Not for KOS.
His anaylsis is that the CBC is "stupid," it's decision no less than "breathtaking in its stupidity."
