More Insights From Republican Spinmeisters Conway And Giuliani

On "Larry King Live" (8/26/08), GOP strategist Kellyanne Conway stated that because Hillary Clinton's speech at the Democratic convention was so good, her supporters must be wondering anew why she isn't the nominee. Her comment followed Senator Clinton's outstanding, passionate speech, the very point of which was to promote party unity behind Barack Obama.

The Republican strategy is clear: sow or exagerrate Democratic disunity. Rudy Giuliani did the same with his absurd statement, "Nowhere tonight did she say that Barack Obama is ready to lead."

Really? How about Hillary's statement, "And when Barack Obama is in the White House, he'll revitalize our economy, defend the working people of America, and meet the global challenges of our times."

Or try this one: "And we know that President Obama will end the war in Iraq responsibly, bring our troops home, and begin to repair our alliances around the world."

Pretty tall orders for someone who isn't ready to lead.

As for Kellyanne Conway, we've already seen how insightful she is on a previous "Larry King Live" (3/7/08) with her racist comment, heard in the video above, "...while Hillary and Obama argue about whether or not she should let him sit in the back of the bus of her presidential ticket..." Both King and Obama supporter Jamal Simmons were incredulous at her statement. 

Conway should now realize that Clinton is calling for Obama to take over the wheel and drive the bus.

Like we care.

It boggles me that networks and newspapers think anyone who's a Democrat cares one little bit what any right-wing snarkmeister thinks about what's going on in Denver.

One wonders what "left-of-center" pundits CNN will pull out of its hat to dissect next week's freak show.

I was hoping you'd write a piece on the Denver riots. Nevertheless, here's some amusing Limbaugh commentary on the incident. Enjoy :)

Quakerdave: It's not that a Democrat cares; the problem is the amount of influence these reactionary media hacks have across the country as they spew their lies day after day, especially on Fox.

I recently heard CNN referred to as a "leftist" news outlet. I took it as an indication of just how far to the right our media has shifted.

Media Monkey: Thanks for the reference. Quite amusing. See my post of Wednesday, August 27.

Geez louise, if CNN is LEFT (the folks who employ GLEN BECK!), what would RIGHT look like?

Besides Fox, I mean.
