Nutroots heartbreak: Fox News to co-sponsor Dems’ primary debate in Detroit

posted at 5:45 pm on March 29, 2007 by Allahpundit

With the Congressional Black Caucus on September 23rd. Does Silky Pony dare turn his back on an event with the CBC’s imprimatur of “absolute moral authority”? I suspect he dareth not.

This deal’s actually been in the works for weeks, which means the CBC had to weather the usual storm of Pretty Vicious Rants and Important Action Alerts. The fact that they blew the little creeps off is a testament either to their political courage, the left-wing blogosphere’s relatively negligible influence, or a tacit understanding between the two that no matter how fightin’ the fightin’ nutroots may be, they’re not going to jeopardize their progressive bona fides by tangling with a coalition of black legislators. There may be some threats and blowback for this, but I guarantee you it won’t come from the usual precincts of Kosistan.

Update: Fox just published the results of its latest opinion poll. Heh.

Let’s see the nutroots take on the CBC. The CBC is not the wimpy liberal Dems., a couple of “you are a racist” comments and the nutroots will become…very very quiet.
Nothing like pulling out the “race card”, that stops a debate.

Maybe the CBC feels somewhat marginalized by the MoveOn KosKids crowd, and this is their small way of trying to get some turf back.

Love the opinion poll! Very telling. Could this be what has the nutroots so up in arms over Fox hosting the debate? Could it? Grab the popcorn kids. THIS is must see TV.

I saw a flash of light from Los Angeles, I think the nutroots up there just went nuclear

Pretty Vicious Rants and Important Action Alerts! Ha! Still funny :)

Maybe the next Democratic debate will be sponsored by FNC and AIPAC. That should send the netroots into full Super Duper Action Alert territory.
